Adam Copeland Would Like To Have His Last Match At Maple Leaf Gardens

Adam Copeland has an idea for his last match.

Adam Copeland is still going strong in AEW, but he knows he's closer to the end of his career than the beginning. Copeland was forced into one retirement in 2011, but after returning to the ring in 2020, he's now able to finish things on his terms.

Speaking to Sam Roberts on Not Sam Wrestling, Copeland was asked about his ideal retirement scenario and if it needs to be a triumph or could it be a tragedy.

"I don't think it needs to be triumphant, I already had that. I don't know if it's Christian anymore. It'd be nice to give that final shot in the arm to that person, or the person who is already there, but it isn't going to hurt. In a perfect world, to me, the place is really important. I would love to do it in Maple Leafs Gardens. That I would love to do. Even if it means I have to start an Indie for a day and I have to book Maple Leafs Gardens and I have to film it and get a production team and get the talent. To be able to do it in the place that I first saw wrestling live. To be back in that place. If I could do it in Maple Leaf Gardens, there is no other place and there is no other ending after that. It's just done and it's just it," he said.

Maple Leaf Gardens is where Copeland saw his first wrestling event, which is why the venue is so important to him.

Copeland faced Christian Cage in a No DQ match at AEW Worlds End, and won the AEW TNT Title, but immediately lost it thanks to Christian cashing in Killswitch's contract.
