Adam Cole is regarded as one of the most skilled in-ring stars in the pro wrestling world right now, and fans will love him no matter what. Unfortunately, his time in AEW hasn’t gone the way fans would have liked due to his slew of injuries. In fact, a lot of people are concerned about his health.

Cole took part in a fatal four-way match for the IWGP World Heavyweight title at Forbidden Door, despite being injured before the match. The match led to him suffering a concussion as well, and he hasn’t returned to in-ring competition yet. Dave Meltzer mentioned in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter how he had suffered a concussion as well.

Cole, who has been wrestling with a torn labrum (shoulder), suffered what was believed to have been a very serious concussion, leading to a rushed and awkward finish of the IWGP title match as Jay White pinned him

The accomplished star returned on AEW Dynamite back in August and got a bit physical as well, but he was once again absent right after that. According to the weekly pro wrestling publication, many people are concerned for Cole’s well-being in AEW now.


It’s a concussion and you never know until you are ready and can pass protocol. Adam Cole’s situation was never asked about, but it’s very concerning since he’s been out since 6/26 in the four-way IWGP title match with Adam Page, Jay White and Kazuchika Okada. A number of people have brought up being very concerned for him

Adam Cole may never wrestle again at this rate. Regardless, we will keep you updated on his status, and we hope he does make his return somewhere down the line.
