There is no doubt that Adam Cole achieved a lot of success during his 4-year run on NXT. He helped elevate the black and gold brand to the next level and had some of the best matches in recent memory as well. It seems Jim Cornette isn’t a fan of Adam Cole’s current booking in AEW.

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. Cole has already become one of the mainstays of the AEW television and fans are always excited to see him every week.

Both Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly also made their debuts in AEW and this finally led to a reformation of the Undisputed Era. While speaking on his Drive-Thru podcast, Jim Cornette talked about Adam Cole and Orange Cassidy’s match at the Holiday Bash edition of AEW Dynamite last week.

Jim Cornette criticized AEW and said that that AEW has completely nullified any meaningful impact Adam Cole could have had in the company.


“So as soon as I saw the match, they have completely nullified any meaningful impact that Adam Cole could have had on their business. He was a secondary, put in a secondary position when he made his debut underneath Bryan Danielson. Even after that, all he’s been doing is associating with clowns and Jackoffs and immersed himself in bad comedy.

And I was hoping that the Undisputed Era reforming or much of it might have an impact. We will find out that it really will not. So I’ll fast forward to this because I am not going to watch this match. It’s a f***** joke, right? It is simply an insult to what I thought Adam Cole had for a career. It went 20 minutes, 20 minutes with this guy. One good sign is that Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish are better than The Young Bucks.”

AEW is also likely planning a huge Undisputed Era vs The Elite storyline once Kenny Omega makes his return to AEW television. We will have to wait and see how Adam Cole will be booked in the coming months.
