Adam Cole’s contributions to NXT after debuting back in 2017 cannot be understated. He was involved in several of the brand’s best matches and helped make NXT what it was for 4 years. Cole also cried like a baby after his final match in WWE.

Adam Cole was done with NXT after TakeOver 36 and shortly after that, Adam Cole’s WWE contract also expired, making him free agent. Cole chose to sign with AEW, and the rest is now history.

While speaking on “The Kurt Angle Show,” Adam Cole talked about his time with WWE, Cole revealed that he cried like a baby.

“I’m an emotional guy, and I don’t think I’ve ever said this, but I cried like a baby after that match. I’m sitting there, I’m watching this video package before the match, and its pictures of me and Kyle from 2009, and all this Ring of Honor stuff, and us wrestling each other in New Japan, and I know this is my last night at NXT … I was crying before I went out there.


Getting to do that with him, there’s no one I would’ve rather wrestled or been in there with than Kyle. Just because I got to close my Ring of Honor chapter with him in a lot of ways, I got to close my PWG chapter and then my “NXT” chapter with Kyle. So it was a very special night and a very emotional night for me.”

Adam Cole competed at the AEW x NJPW ‘Forbidden Door’ event and many were worried about his health. Cole said he was feeling alright after the event as well. We’ll have to see when Cole will be making his return to AEW television.
