Copeland said about joining AEW, “Part of coming here is that I want to contribute. I wanted to help. I just felt like here, I’d really be able to do that an have the opportunity to be able to do that. I look at an entire fresh roster of faces and so many talent that I’ve never laid hands on before and that, to me, as a person who is driven by challenges, that for me was the biggest thing. I’ve never been in a ring with Samoa Joe or stood in a ring with Sting before tonight. I see Nick Wayne, Swerve, there are so many possibilities for me. At this stage of my career, that is so enticing and exciting. I felt free. It felt fun. I felt the same feeling I had when I would come out for my indie shows when I was Adam Impact or Sexton Hardcastle. It was this brand new thing I always wanted to do. That feeling, I felt it out there. At this stage in my career, to feel that, that’s special. 31 years in, to feel that way, that’s a gift. This is all I ever wanted to do and this feels like an opportunity to come in, and not just come in every three months. I’m going to be there every week. I’m a full-time guy. I want to do that for as long as that is possible. I feel that’s how I can help the most. More than anything, that’s what I’m here to do.”
Copeland’s debut with AEW was marked by a dramatic rescue of Darby Allin and Sting from an attack by Luchsaurus, Nick Wayne, and Christian Cage at the end of the AEW WrestleDream event.
