In a remarkable post-show event at AEW Battle of the Belts IX, the iconic Adam Copeland, also known as "The Rated R Superstar," teamed up with FTR, Orange Cassidy, and Daniel Garcia for a highly entertaining and unforgettable segment.
The crowd was treated to a delightful surprise when Daniel Garcia coaxed Copeland into joining the dance, adding a lighthearted twist to the evening. The segment took a nostalgic turn with FTR's Dax Harwood making a significant reference to Lita, Copeland's former on-screen partner in WWE.
This mention harkened back to their controversial and much-talked-about moments in WWE, particularly a notorious NSFW segment that they shared in the ring. The indirect reference by Harwood sparked a wave of excitement and nostalgia among the audience, who vividly remember the duo's history.
Amidst the festivities, a fan captured this hilarious and heartwarming moment, sharing it on Twitter with the caption: "Adam Copeland, FTR, Orange Cassidy, and Daniel Garcia dancing. Dax mentions Lita after Adam says these fans have seen plenty of his moves."
Copeland Addresses Match Criticism
In another recent development, Adam Copeland addressed the criticism surrounding his match against the promising young talent, Griff Garrison, on the January 6, 2024 episode of Collision.
Despite winning the match in a matter of minutes, the outcome sparked debate among fans on social media. During an interview on Busted Open Radio, Copeland elaborated on the match's significance, emphasizing the learning opportunity it presented for Garrison.
Copeland, drawing on his own experiences as a young wrestler, stressed the value of sharing the ring with established stars, underscoring the growth and exposure it offers to emerging talents. Copeland's rationale was clear: "If he can get in there and we have five minutes of time in there, I feel like he can learn more in the five minutes than he would in probably 200 matches with people of the same experience." His statement reflects not only his confidence in his own abilities as a mentor but also his belief in Garrison's potential.
Additionally, Copeland recently shone in a riveting match against Lee Moriarty on Collision. Accepting Copeland's open challenge, Moriarty stepped into the ring for a high-energy bout that kept fans on the edge of their seats. Copeland's victory in this encounter further cemented his status as a formidable force in AEW.
