AEW Made Edge’s 1st Dream Come True, Something WWE Didn’t Allow Him To Do

AEW did a great job during Sunday’s Double Or Nothing PPV as the event ended up being better than what many expected it to be. While the highlight of the night was the return to MJF, Adam Copeland’s win over Malakai Black also grabbed a lot of attention as Edge and Black delivered an exceptional performance inside the ring.

Their match was filled with many crazy spots, as The Rated R-Superstar even jumped off the top of the cage during their encounter. But even before their match began, the veteran did something he wasn’t allowed to do during his last run in WWE, as he had an entrance paying homage to his association with The Brood.

The veteran wrestler presented a brand new entrance with the faction on the screen, and its music was quite similar to their original theme. Because this particular entrance was not expected by the audience, it received a massive reaction from the crows in Las Vegas, which showed that they absolutely loved it.

While this was a great moment, what happened in the final moments of Edge’s match was even more memorable. In the closing moments, WWE veteran Gangrel made a shocking appearance emerging from under the ring as the House of Black was about to execute Copeland. Making his appearance on the show, he received a standing ovation from the fans.

After making his presence felt, he rescued his old friend from the heel faction, who was positioned with a crown of wire around him. In fact, The Vampire Warrior not only saved him from a brutal attack; his involvement in the match also allowed The Rated R-Superstar to secure the victory in this high-profile fight.

WWE declined Edge’s idea for WrestleMania 39 involving Gangrel

AEW’s decision to give the entrance to Adam Copeland was a little more special than usual because WWE declined Edge’s idea for WrestleMania 39 involving Gangrel. It was revealed by The Rated R-Superstar himself that the Stamford-based promotion did not support him to bring back his former partner from The Brood for his match against Finn Balor at The Grandest Stage of Them All.

The veteran revealed on Chris Van Vliet’s podcast that the idea was shut down and denied by everyone backstage. He said, “Every person closed it. I would always get the “no one remembers”. I’m like, people remember, wrestling fans remember and wrestling wants to be rewarded for remembering, and this is a way to reward them.”

Despite not having Gangrel on his side, Adam Copeland made a styled entrance at WrestleMania 39, which was iconic. In fact, he defeated The Demon in a great match, but if WWE had given him the green flag to bring back his former friend for a special appearance in The Showcase of the Immortals, things could have been even better.

Edge’s first AEW rival was also part of The Brood

After Adam Copeland left WWE in September 2023, he made his debut for All Elite Wrestling, and his connection with the Attitude Era faction also continued in this company. The reason behind this is that Edge’s first AEW rival, Christian Cage, was also part of The Brood faction in the Stamford-based promotion.

These two were a successful tag team in the Triple H-led promotion, but before that, they had a stint as friends in the faction friends. As The Rated R-Superstar made his debut for the Tony Khan-led promotion against his former friend, it would surely have brought back many memories for the legendary in-ring star.

Although the veteran’s feud with Christian ended with Gangrel’s appearance at the Double Or Nothing PPV, it remains to be seen if these three will have a program together or not. If AEW books all three of them in a storyline, it will definitely be a must watch, and it will also be nostalgic for these pro wrestling superstars.
