WWE Hall of Famer Edge joined All Elite Wrestling as Adam Copeland at the AEW WrestleDream PPV on October 1st.

The Rated-R Superstar received backlash from some WWE fans for joining Tony Khan’s company.

During an interview with Adrian Hernandez, Copeland addressed this situation and had the following to say about joining the #2 pro-wrestling promotion in the US today:

“You know, it’s interesting. Just in terms of, I guess, how people have like almost a brand allegiance or a team allegiance kind of thing. For me, I knew there was gonna be some fan base in switching companies that [said], ‘Oh, he’s a traitor’. But, man, nobody’s a traitor. We left on great terms.

And for me, here’s how I look at it. Paul Newman did movies for Paramount. He also did movies for MGM. Did you not watch them because they were MGM, and you have this really, really, like, strong opinion about Paramount films?

Like, that’s what we’re talking about here, right? For me, I’m doing all I ever wanted to do, and I’m getting a chance to do it again after I was told I would never do it again.

I get to do it with my best friend. I get to look at a whole new roster of opponents. That to me is exciting, and to be able to get as excited as I am at 50 years old, why wouldn’t I do that?”

Copeland is currently involved in a feud with his best friend in real-life, TNT Champion Christian Cage.
