Maybe not? There have been a lot of wrestlers moving around the wrestling world in recent months and there is nothing to suggest that the changes will be ending soon. There are always going to be contracts expiring, meaning that wrestlers will be free to do whatever they like. That is the case again with a fairly high profile name, but things might not be as far along as originally thought.

Earlier this week, news broke that Adam Cole’s WWE contract would be expiring later this month, potentially making him a free agent. There is no word on where Cole will be signing, but the Wrestling Observer Newsletter was reporting that AEW made a contract offer to Cole without the last few months. However, Dave Meltzer reported on Twitter that AEW President Tony Khan responded to the rumor, saying that he had not offered Cole a contract. There is no word on any possible negotiations between AEW and Cole.

Both sides would want him for a reason. Check out what Cole can bring:

FULL MATCH - Adam Cole vs. Seth Rollins – NXT Title Match: Raw, Nov. 4, 2019

Adam Cole blasts Finn Bálor and double-crosses Roderick Strong: WWE NXT, Feb. 24, 2021

Adam Cole’s best NXT moments: NXT Top 5, Nov. 17, 2019

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that can make wrestling both nerve wracking and fascinating at the same time. Cole is one of several wrestlers that any promotion would want and there are going to be a lot of stories about who might be going where. That can make for some very interesting moments, which are going to be even bigger when someone actually does make a jump.

Where will Cole wind up? Where do you want him to be? Let us know in the comments below.
