Adam Cole is certainly one of the most skilled in-ring competitors in the pro wrestling world right now. He left NXT last year and made his way to AEW, which certainly made fans happy. Cole is also on the road to recovery for the time being.

The winner of the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament suffered an injury at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view as well. In spite of that, Adam Cole competed in a fatal four-way match for the IWGP World Heavyweight title at Forbidden Door.

That brutal match led to him suffering a serious injury, which was likely a concussion. According to Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Live, he stated that Adam Cole is still not cleared for an in-ring return.

He’s not cleared, but he will be there for an appearance. I don’t know his status, same for Kyle O’Reilly.


Adam Cole also isn’t going to have surgery for his torn labrum. Cole is also unlikely to make his return to AEW television anytime soon. We’ll have to wait and see when Cole will be back.
