Gangrel Reveals How His AEW Double Or Nothing Appearance Came About

Gangrel assisted Adam Copeland in retaining his TNT Championship Sunday night at AEW Double or Nothing.

Former WWE Superstar Gangrel was a recent guest on Busted Open Radio. When asked about his AEW Double or Nothing appearance on Sunday, Gangrel said that when Copeland has a story in his mind, it’s going to eventually happen.

“Adam is hard-headed. Once he has a story or something in his mind, he’s going to get it done one way or another,” Gangrel said. “Eventually, it went over to AEW, and he got it done. I’m appreciative for it. I’m 55 years old. I didn’t know if I could crawl up through the bottom of the ring, being under there for a while. My biggest fear was, ‘Can I get up and move?’ My adrenaline kicked in. I was just blessed to be part of that moment.”

How long did Gangrel know he was coming in?

Earlier this month, during an interview with Chris Van Vliet, Adam Copeland explained why Gangrel wasn’t part of his entrance at WrestleMania 38. At that point, Gangrel had already known he was coming in for Double or Nothing and that Copeland was planting the seeds ahead of time.

“When I saw him do the interview, I already knew I was coming in,” Gangrel revealed. “He just wanted to keep it quiet. When he did that interview, I was like, ‘He’s planting the seeds. He’s going to make sure they do remember.’ Smart man. They kept it hush-hush. I didn’t tell anybody. They had me come in last minute.

“I stayed in his locker room the whole time. When I went to the ring, (Chris) Jericho was like, ‘What are you doing here?’ They were able to keep it quiet as best they could, and I was surprised by that. It’s really hard to do in wrestling nowadays.

“I didn’t get wheelchaired in and covered up or anything like that. Just came in early, went to the locker room, and sat there all day. Right before the match, threw a black hoodie on, went out there with the ring crew, climbed under the deal, and that was that.” [H/T: Fightful]
