AEW star Adam Copeland has shared the touching reasoning for taking a particular movie role back in 2020.

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Red Letter Media released a movie titled Money Plane, starring Copeland and Kelsey Grammar, best known for his roles in sitcoms Cheers and Frasier.
While the movie was widely panned critically, it did at least have some personal significance to Copeland, something he revealed on the latest edition of Hey! (EW).

Copeland said:
“So my mom’s favorite actor was Kelsey Grammar. She loved Kelsey Grammar. (Cheers and Fraiser was) her totality of Kelsey Grammar.
“However, that was the first show that I watched with my mom, then we watched Fraiser together.
“Then she got diagnosed with cancer and we watched Frasier together after every chemotherapy.
“After she passed away, I got offered a role opposite Kelsey Grammar. I said ‘You’re damn right I’m doing it.’ I don’t even need to see how bad the script is.”

Copeland’s next big acting role will be as the God of War Ares on the new Disney+ TV show Percy Jackson and the Olympians, airing on December 20.
The former WWE star recently laid out the challenge for his first title match in AEW on this past Saturday’s edition of Collision (November 25).
Following up his attack of Nick Wayne on Dynamite (November 22), Copeland attacked Christian Cage’s Right Hand of Destruction Killswitch (FKA Luchasaurus) with a conchairto, before laying out a challenge to his former tag partner for a match for the TNT Championship.
The challenge was made for the December 6 AEW Dynamite from Montreal, Canada, however, it has not yet been confirmed by AEW President Tony Khan.
