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 was free to do whatever he wanted to.
Adam Cole decided that he wanted to be All Elite and so made his debut at AEW All Out and utterly shocked the pro wrestling world to its core. Adam Cole also previously stated that he would love to work with his girlfriend AEW Women’s Champion Britt Baker in AEW.
While speaking to Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions, Adam Cole claimed that NXT was interested in signing Britt Baker at one point in time.
“Britt was in such an interesting spot where, because of AEW and because she’s so talented, stuff blew up for her overnight. That’s how it felt. She had been doing great on the Independents and had been doing well and formed relationships with other girls and other promoters and all of a sudden, here she is with this brand new company that is on fire and she’s knocking it out of the park. I know for sure that NXT was interested in saying, ‘Hey, if Britt is available please let us know,’ and I know AEW was interested in me as well. It was an interesting back and forth of ‘it’d be cool if you came here’ or ‘it’d be cool if I came there,’ but we were both under contract. Not much we could do, but we did fantasize about those things.”
We will have to wait and see when Adam Cole and Britt Baker will be engaged in a storyline together now that they are finally in the same company.
