AEW TNT Champion Adam Copeland suffered a broken tibia that will require surgery

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Adam Copeland announced that he suffered a broken tibia. Copeland released a video (see below) on Tuesday morning in which he stated that the injury will require surgery. Copeland said he’d been feeling good lately and got cocky. Copeland acknowledged that he is 50 years-old and said, “I need to make better choices, so my body pulled the emergency break the other night.”

Powell’s POV: One can only assume that the injury occurred when Copeland jumped from the top of the cage and landed on his feet while performing an elbow drop during his match with Malakai Black at Sunday’s AEW Double Or Nothing. Copeland noted that he does not have surgery scheduled because he wants to enjoy his daughter’s birthday on Friday. There’s no word yet as to whether AEW intends to strip him of the TNT Title or go with an interim champion. Here’s wishing Copeland the best with his surgery and recovery.

  1. I wish Aew wrestlers would work smarter. This was meant to be a cage match yet a table got in there. Kingston out for over a year due to a stupid garbage match. Thats copeland out of wembley now and ive got a ticket. Gutted as its self inflicted. Danielson missed wembley last year due to a garbage match. They never learn.

  2. Welp here comes another tournament or battle royal.ECW had less injuries than this!

    Mudshow gonna mudshow.

    The very first match between Copeland and Black was an electrified cage match and they get one of their few potential draws injured for no reason at all.

  4. AEW does. Not. Learn.

    The only person who insisted wrestlers work safer was mocked on air, “Real glass. Cry me a river,” followed by other glass and stupid stunts for months.

    No storytelling, build or logic, just dangerous gimmicks for the sake of them.
