Adam Copeland Claims He Advocated For Recent AEW TV Matches Against Young Talents

Adam Copeland is still enjoying himself at this late stage in his legendary pro wrestling career.

During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, “The Rated-R Superstar” spoke about still having fun wrestling, as well as how he advocated for his recent AEW television matches against up-and-comers Griff Garrison and Lee Moriarty.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.

On how he advocated for his recent AEW TV matches against Griff Garrison and Lee Moriarty because it is fun for him to work with new guys: “Anything I do at this stage of life has to be fun or I’m not going to do it. Wrestling was the first love and it always will be. That can never be taken away. I still find so much fun. The minute it stops being fun is the minute I need to be done. Because it was taken away from me the first time, and then to come back, and have this whole new generation of talent that I’ve never performed with or got in there with. It’s fun. I’ve repeatedly said how much fun I’m having. That’s what it boils down to. No matter what I’m doing, I’m having fun, or I wouldn’t be doing it. I wouldn’t be wrestling Griff Garrison if I didn’t find the fun in that. I wouldn’t be wrestling Lee Moriarty if I didn’t find the fun in that. It’s just a blast.”

On how he’s still having fun wrestling and wouldn’t continue doing it if that weren’t the case: “This may sound like a lie, but I’m at a stage in life where, if it’s not fun, I don’t need the money. I know that sounds really bad, but I was always really smart. I still drive a pick-up truck. I don’t waste my money. It hurt too much to make. If I’m doing it, it’s purely for the joy of it.”
