Adam Copeland (Edge) says he made a creative pitch for WWE Wrestlemania 39 that was shot down by “every person”

During an interview with Chris Van Vliet, Adam Copeland (formerly Edge) commented on how he made a creative pitch for former WWE star Gangrel to be part of his “Brood” entrance at Wrestlemania 39. Copeland said the following…

“I tried and I just got shut down. Every person shut it down. [Why?] So this isn’t a knock on WWE, but I’d always get the well nobody remembers. People remember, wrestling fans remember and I think wrestling fans want to be rewarded for remembering. And that’s a way to reward them. That’s what I’ve always felt.

I think you know, you fast forward to me and Matt Cardona doing a Cope Open. And his music hits and he comes out. I mean, they remembered. And so I’ve always been a fan of pulling in things from the past and kind of integrating them into current things. But yeah, that was one I just kept getting shut down. I realised, okay, that was not a hill to die on because it didn’t get to happen. It’s not my sandbox, I got to do with what I’ve been given.” (Thanks to Chris Van Vliet for the quote)
