30-time champion removed from WWE intro
In the latest news, WWE has removed the multi-time champion from its intro video package after making his way into rival promotion AEW.
The star in question is Adam Copeland (fka Edge), who has been a four-time WWE Champion, a seven-time World Heavyweight Champion, a five-time Intercontinental Champion, and a 14-time Tag Team Champion with several stars such as Hulk Hogan, Christian, Randy Orton, Chris Jerico, Chris Benoit, and Rey Mysterio.
A few weeks ago, the 30-time champion had his last match with the Stamford-based promotion on Friday Night SmackDown. Edge collided against Sheamus in his final match and emerged victorious in his hometown, Toronto.
The Hall of Famer's contract with World Wrestling Entertainment expired on September 30 as he made his All Elite Wrestling Debut on October 1 at WrestleDream PPV under his real name.
The Rated-R Superstar's last appearance in WWE's intro video package was at No Mercy on September 30. However, after making a jump ship into Tony Khan's promotion, the Stamford-based company updated its intro as Seth Rollins replaced Edge in the video package during the October 2 edition of Monday Night RAW.
