Adam Copeland Undergoes Surgery For Fractured Tibia

Best wishes to Adam Copeland.

At AEW Double or Nothing, Adam Copeland defended the TNT Championship against Malakai Black in a Barbed Wire Steel Cage match. Copeland scored the win, but he subsequently announced that he had fractured his tibia, and he would need to get surgery.

In a post on Instagram, Adam Copeland confirmed that he underwent surgery. He noted that he was one day removed from the operation.

Due to the injury, Copeland was forced to vacate the TNT Championship. A new champion will be crowned at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door. Qualifying matches began on the May 31 episode of AEW Rampage. There, Konosuke Takeshita defeated Penta El Zero Miedo.

WrestleZone wishes Adam Copeland well in his recovery, and we will provide more information as it becomes available.
