Chris Jericho is confident that Adam Copeland will reinvigorate Adam Copeland.
At AEW WrestleDream, Adam Copeland, formerly known as Edge, made his AEW debut. Tony Khan then announced that Copeland signed with the company. In coming to AEW, Copeland reunites with Chris Jericho, Matt Hardy, Christian Cage, and several other stars he has plenty of history with.
During the AEW WrestleDream post-show media scrum, Chris Jericho was asked to share his thoughts on Copeland joining AEW. He emphasized how he knows Copeland loves wrestling. Jericho noted that AEW is a place where that love can thrive. He then expressed his belief that Copeland will do some of his best work in AEW.
"I’ve known Adam since 1995. He loves wrestling. Sometimes, in other places, that love of wrestling kind of gets squashed and warped a bit, maybe. It’s not like that in AEW. When some of the other guys came, like FTR and Adam Cole and those guys, they couldn’t believe the difference and the vibe of what we have here. Talking with Adam and seeing him come out to the ring, he’s super stoked and super excited and super motivated. When you’re motivated, that’s when great wrestlers become even better and more legendary. He’s already a great wrestler. He’s a first-round Hall of Famer. Now that he’s motivated again, I think we’re going to see some of the best work Adam Copeland has ever done now here in AEW," Jericho said.
Jericho and Copeland previously teamed up together in WWE, and they also faced each other at WrestleMania 26.
