Adam Cole won the inaugural Owen Hart Men’s Tournament. Cole was injured during the finals against Samoa Joe at Double or Nothing. That injury put him on the shelf and he is expected to miss out a couple months of in-ring action.

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently provided his two cents on Adam Cole’s injury. The former World Heavyweight Champion spoke about the whole situation regarding Adam Cole on his Hall of Fame podcast.

“If Adam Cole has to have surgery and he’s down for six, nine months and he, you know, lose any more muscle, it’s going to be hard on this brother. You know what I’m saying? Right now, he’s about a buck 60.

“We gotta get more weight on Adam Cole, you know what I mean? That’s his problem, he’s light, bottom light. We gotta get some muscle on this kid. That’s probably one of the reasons why he’s going out there, getting hurt because it can’t be the schedule at AEW.”


Per Fightful’s paywall, Cole has been “banged up for quite a while” and that he has been “battling a series of injuries” for longer than many others think. It was said that he has been dealing with a labrum injury as far back as his feud with Adam Page.
