The school's practice ring was a 12-by-14-foot boxing ring with a harder mat than that of a typical wrestling ring.
The ceiling above it was low, with exposed pipes, preventing top-rope moves from being performed.
On May 10, 1996, Copeland (as Sexton Hardcastle) replaced Bob Holly's opponent on short notice in the opening match of a WWF house show in Hamilton, Ontario.
After a Grand Prix Wrestling tour in the summer of 1997, De Marco urged Copeland to go to Calgary, where Hart was informally training wrestlers while recovering from knee surgery.
Copeland was trained by professional wrestlers Sweet Daddy Siki and Ron Hutchison. In July 1999, he won the WWF Intercontinental Championship at a house show in Toronto, making it his first title reign with the company.
In 1997, Copeland signed a developmental deal with the WWF and began competing for the company later that year; he made his televised debut the following June under the ring name Edge.
On October 11, 1998's edition of Sunday Night Heat, Edge defeated Vader in singles competition and at WWF Capital Carnage, Edge faced Tiger Ali Singh in a losing effort. The Brood was later abducted and converted into The Undertaker's Ministry of Darkness.
At Rock Bottom: In Your House, The Brood defeated The J. In May 1999, the Brood broke away from the Ministry after Christian was attacked by Ken Shamrock and forced to reveal the location of the captive Stephanie Mc Mahon.
He became a part of the tag team Sex and Violence with Joe E. In the mid-1990s, he wrestled as Adam Impact for Tony Condello's Winnipeg promotion.
Edge's first televised match was against Jose Estrada, Jr.
of Los Boricuas, which ended prematurely by countout when Edge performed a somersault senton from the ring to the outside, legitimately injuring Estrada's neck.
Aside from professional wrestling, Copeland appeared in the fantasy film Highlander: Endgame and WWE Studios' Bending the Rules.
He has made guest appearances on television shows such as Weakest Link, Mind of Mencia, Deal or No Deal, MADtv, and The Flash.
