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.
While he is certainly happy in AEW, there is no doubt Adam Cole had a terrific time in WWE as well, where he formed bonds with quite a few WWE Superstars.
While speaking on the Oral Sessions podcast with Renee Paquette, Adam Cole revealed that the hardest thing about leaving WWE was for him to leave Daparty, comprising Xavier Woods, Tyler Breeze, and Cesaro.
“Very hard. That was probably the hardest part about the decision [to leave WWE was also leaving DaParty] I think. I really formed a close bond with [Xavier] Woods and Swiss [Cesaro] and [Tyler] Breeze over the pandemic. Again, the backstory to that is sort of funny too because Claudio and Breeze and Creed all wanted to start producing some more content since the pandemic started and they were, like, ‘I think we wanna start playing UNO. We need a fourth guy,’ and I didn’t know this, but when I did the first episode, I was kind of on trial. That was my audition and I didn’t even know that. I was like, ‘Okay, yeah I’ll do it,’ and they, I guess, all knew immediately, ‘Oh my God, this is our four-man crew’ and then between all the fun content that we produced and all the fun moments that we’ve had together, so I talk to those guys every single day. We have a group chat and we talk every single day.”
Booker T is all for Adam Cole becoming the AEW World Champion eventually. It remains to be seen whether Adam Cole will be as successful in AEW as he was in NXT or not.
