Adam Copeland Discusses Differences Between Tony Khan, Triple H, and Vince McMahon

Adam Copeland, also known as Edge, recently shared insights into his experiences working for Vince McMahon, Triple H, and Tony Khan, shedding light on the distinctions between the three prominent figures in the wrestling industry.

Having made his debut in All Elite Wrestling (AEW) at WrestleDream in October, this marked a significant shift for Copeland, who had spent over 25 years exclusively with WWE.

In a conversation with Sam Roberts on NotSam Wrestling, Edge delved into the nuances of working under Vince McMahon and Triple H at WWE and now with Tony Khan at AEW. He pointed out that both Paul Levesque (Triple H) and Tony Khan approach their roles as fans of the sport, with Vince McMahon leaning more towards a business-oriented and global perspective. According to Edge, this fan-centric mindset brings a unique flavor to the creative process.

Highlighting the disparities between WWE and AEW, Edge emphasized the corporate nature of WWE as a publicly traded company with various sponsors and obligations. On the other hand, AEW offers a more liberating environment, providing wrestlers with a greater degree of creative freedom. Edge humorously mentioned the restrictions in WWE, such as refraining from explicit language on television, which contrasts with the openness and flexibility in AEW.

Especially in the twilight of his career, Edge finds AEW to be an exhilarating space for creativity. The absence of strict guidelines allows for experimentation and a willingness to take risks in developing storylines. Edge expressed his enjoyment in navigating this freer creative space, where ideas can be tested without the constraints found in WWE.

Reflecting on his championship victory in AEW at Worlds End, where he defeated Christian Cage to claim the TNT Championship, Edge acknowledged the transient nature of success in the industry. His reign, though brief at three minutes, became a memorable episode when Christian promptly utilized his Killswitch move during the TNT Championship opportunity, swiftly reclaiming the title from Edge.
