A Foot In The Door

Edge bret hart hitman

In 1997, Copeland briefly trained with Bret Hart in Calgary, during a time in which "The Hitman" was off the road recovering from knee surgery. 

After a few stints working with Bret, the five-time WWE Champion put in a good word for both he and Christian with WWE officials. That November, shortly after Hart was screwed over in Montreal at Survivor Series, Copeland wrestled two dark matches at Raw tapings: one against former Canadian Football player Glenn Kulka, the other with Christian. 

Shortly after, the man that was to become Edge joined a WWE-endorsed training camp headed up by Dory Funk Jr, where he and Sean "Val Venis" Morley proved to be the standouts.
