“The Rated-R Superstar” is on the road to recovery.

By all accounts, things are looking good as he begins the process.

Following successful surgery on a broken tibia suffered during his Barbed Wire Steel Cage match for the TNT Championship against Malakai Black at last month’s AEW Double Or Nothing 2024 pay-per-view, Adam Copeland spoke with Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso for an interview.

According to Copeland, his doctor is optimistic about his recovery.

“My Achilles tendon injury a few years ago led to my most difficult rehabilitation, and I expect more from that,” Copeland said. “I’m 50. I know what awaits me.”

He continued: ‘But the operation was successful and the doctor was optimistic because my bones are healthy. It’s my seventh operation, so I know the trick. We’ll see how my body cooperates.”
