Adam Copeland Regrets The Timing Of His Injury: I Was Really Pumped For Wembley

Adam Copeland defended his TNT Championship against Malakai Black inside a steel cage at AEW Double or Nothing. During the match, The Rated R Superstar suffered a severe leg injury and fractured his tibia.

Although Copeland successfully defended his title, due to the injury, he had to take time off to recover. Thus, the Executive Vice Presidents of AEW, Matt and Nick Jackson stripped Copeland of the TNT Title. Currently, a tournament is in progress to determine the next TNT Champion.

Recently, while speaking to Freddie Prinze Jr. in his Wrestling with Freddie podcast, the former TNT Champion Adam Copeland discussed the severity of his injury. Copeland mentioned that he knows that his leg will take a long time to heel. Adding to that, the WWE Hall of Famer also mentioned that he regrets the injury for one major reason. That is the fact that due to his fractured Tibia, he will be missing out on the AEW All In pay-per-view in Wembley.

“The regret that I have in this injury happening when it has, was Wembley Stadium. I was really, really pumped for Wembley because throughout everything and all the different venues I’ve been — and even all the dumps that I’ve wrestled or the barns that I’ve wrestled or just whatever right — Wembley, man, like I just think of Freddy Mercury I think of Queen. That’s where I go and it’s like, ‘Oh Wembley I can’t wait.’ Well, looks like I’m gonna have to wait longer,” Adam Copeland said. [H/T WrestlingInc.]
