AEW superstar Adam Cole was recently a guest on Rasslin’ with Brandon Walker on Barstool Sports where he discussed a number of topics. Among them was how he is perceived in AEW and if he was worried about becoming lost in the shuffle in WWE/NXT.
Below is a highlight from the interview, with transcription courtesy of WrestleZone:
“So, I think the big difference here is looking at AEW the company as a whole, objectively. So, the biggest thing that AEW does so well, is whether you’re in the first match, in the middle of the card or in the main event, AEW does an excellent job of making every single person feel special. Like I said, whether you hold a title, whether you don’t hold a title,” Cole noted, “a lot of people in that company feel like stars, because they are, and because AEW does a great job of building talent in many different ways.
“Also, for anyone who’s concerned, if you look at kind of where we’re going, I’m a member of The Elite, the number one heel faction in all of AEW. Between the matches that I’ve had with guys like Jungle Boy and the pay-per-view match that we had, I’ve gone face-to-face with ‘Hangman’ Adam Page before,” he explained, “there are things that are happening to Adam Cole that I promise people are going to be satisfied with, very, very happy with. And at the end of the day, whether it’s Ring Of Honor, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, NXT or AEW — I always end up becoming the guy and this is not going to be any different, I promise you. I promise you, because I’m Adam Cole, Bay Bay.”
I can’t argue with this fact, as I think that he is one of the best wrestlers in the world. He needs to break away from The Elite to maximize his potential, however, as he could easily be the top person in AEW for many years to come.
