AEW TNT Champion Adam Copeland announced Tuesday morning that he has suffered a tibia fracture and will be out of action for 4-6 months.

Copeland successfully retained his championship on Sunday in a barbed wire steel cage match against Malakai Black at AEW’s Double or Nothing PPV; during a point in the match, Copeland climbed to the top of the cage and jumped off by hitting a flying elbow to Black through a table. Copeland didn’t look right when he landed.

During the Double or Nothing press conference, AEW President Tony Khan stated that he was “crossing his fingers” that Adam would be okay.

Copeland took to social media this morning, delivering the news on his injury: “I guess the house always does win because I gained two new friends [showed crutches]. I don’t really like them. They’re like those buddies that just annoy you, but they’re always there. Anyway, I’ve been feeling really good lately. Been having so much fun in the ring, and I got cocky, I guess, is what it really boils down to, and I’m probably a narcissist and an ego-maniac, and I’ll unpack that one day. My brain forgets what my body always seems to remember a little late is that I’m 50, and I need to make better choices. So, my body pulled the emergency break on me the other night, and I ended up fracturing my tibia, which is going to require surgery. Don’t know the time frame on that yet.” said Copeland.
