Many fans would agree that Adam Cole was one of the top names in NXT after debuting back in 2017. He competed in some of the brand’s best matches and his importance to the brand can never be understated.

Adam Cole was done with NXT after TakeOver 36 and shortly after that, Adam Cole’s WWE contract also expired, making him a free agent. On top of that, he didn’t sign another contract with WWE, so he could go wherever his heart desired.

His heart ultimately chose AEW as he debuted at AEW All Out and sided with his Elite brethren The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega. He did so after kicking Jungle Boy in the head.

While speaking during the post-All Out media conference, Adam Cole was asked who he wanted to face in AEW. Cole named Jungle Boy at the top of his list as he proceeded to put the 24-year-old over.

“There are definitely some people I’m looking forward to stepping into the ring with. Number one is the gentleman that I kicked tonight and that’s Jungle Boy. He is an incredibly talented young man with a huge future and a guy I would love to kick in the face again.”

Adam Cole also stated that joining AEW was a fairly easy decision for him. We will have to wait and see how he will be booked in AEW in the coming months and if he will face off against Jungle Boy or not.
