Adam Copeland Discusses Personal Connection to Movie Role and Challenges for AEW TNT Championship

Adam Copeland, the AEW star and former WWE standout, has recently opened up about the intimate reasoning behind taking on a role in the 2020 movie “Money Plane” amidst the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic. In a heartfelt revelation on Hey EW, Copeland detailed the personal importance the film held for him, citing his late mother’s adoration of Kelsey Grammar, his co-star in the cinematic venture.

Although “Money Plane” received its share of critical critique, Copeland’s decision to join the cast was deeply rooted in poignant family memories. He recounted that Kelsey Grammar was a favorite of his mother’s – they shared special moments watching “Cheers” and “Frasier,” series that became even more significant as they continued to watch together throughout her battle with cancer. Copeland explained the emotional significance the film held for him, stating, “After she passed away, I got offered a role opposite Kelsey Grammar. I said, ‘You’re damn right I’m doing it.’ I don’t even need to see how bad the script is.”

Copeland’s dedication to his acting career doesn’t overshadow his professional wrestling pursuits. He is set to personify the God of War, Ares, in Disney’s upcoming TV series, “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” slated to air on December 20th. But before he graces the small screen in this mythological role, Copeland has made waves in AEW with his ambitions set squarely on championship gold.

The seasoned pro wrestler recently threw down the gauntlet for his inaugural title match in AEW, utilizing the aftermath of his aggressive encounter with Nick Wayne on the November 22nd episode of AEW Dynamite. Soon after, Copeland unleashed a relentless conchairto on Christian Cage’s Right Hand of Destruction – formerly known as Luchasaurus. In an explosive display, he challenged his ex-tag partner to a match for the coveted TNT Championship. The challenge was issued for the December 6th edition of AEW Dynamite from Montreal, Canada. As per the latest reports, this anticipated bout has not been officially confirmed by AEW President Tony Khan at the time of writing.
