The Reason Why AEW Can Call Adam Copeland The ‘Rated R Superstar’ Revealed


Adam “Edge” Copeland was referred to as the “Rated R Superstar” during his AEW debut at the WrestleDream 2023 pay-per-view event. According to a report from Pwinsider, WWE abandoned their trademark on the term back in May of 2020.

With the trademark being abandoned, AEW and Copeland can use the term without running into issues with WWE’s legal team.


Copeland will be appearing on this week’s episodes of AEW Dynamite and Collision.

In other news, Aussie Open’s Mark Davis took to Twitter following his and Kyle Fletcher’s match with FTR for the AEW World Tag Team Championships at the WrestleDream 2023 pay-per-view event to announce that he suffered a wrist injury. He wrote,

“sometimes you win em, sometimes you snap your wrist”

As of this writing, there is no word on how long he’ll be out of action.
