Adam Copeland Talks Retirement, Mark Briscoe On His Relationship With FTR



Adam Copeland returned from a nine-year retirement at the 2020 WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event. Last year, the Rated R Superstar wrapped up with WWE and signed with AEW to begin a new chapter in his career.

In a recent appearance on the “Mostly Sports” podcast, Copeland, the reigning TNT Champion, discussed the differences between his two stints in wrestling. He said,

“I’ve lived a lot more life. As strange as that sounds, it actually does add to your utility belt out there. As a performer, any kind of performer, they have to dip into a place to pull the character off. It’s the same with wrestling. That, more than anything, is what I’ve noticed coming back. Some of the skillset I got in the acting I did during those nine years off, I did over 100 episodes of television when I was retired. You kind of pull those things back with you. I feel that’s the biggest difference. I might not be as fast as I used to be, but I feel mentally I’m better than I’ve ever been. That is why a guy like Tom Brady goes, ‘Yeah, well, mentally, I’m better than I’ve ever been. I see the game better than I’ve ever seen it.’ I think that’s the struggle. That’s kind of how I feel, but I’m also a realist. I don’t want to be that guy who sticks around to the point where a young guy looks at the sheet and goes, ‘Ah, okay, I have to wrestle him tonight.’ I don’t want to be that guy. I want young guys to still be excited if they’re going to hop in there with me. I figure maybe I have a year and a half left, give or take. Hopefully, I’ve gotten all the ‘yeah, yeahs’ out by that point.”

In a recent appearance on the “Under the Ring” podcast, ROH World Champion Mark Briscoe discussed The Briscoes’ epic trilogy with FTR.

Mark said, “We’re like brothers now. I definitely give the credit of that to having those matches together. I mean those matches were special and especially after–once the accident happened, it was like in hindsight, it was even more special.” 

In the main event of ROH Supercard of Honor, Mark Briscoe defeated Eddie Kingston to become the new ROH World Champion.
