Adam Cole and MJF went from being bitter rivals to the best of friends in the span of a couple of months, but this has affected Cole’s friendship with Roderick Strong. Now it appears Cole is still waiting for Strong to return his calls.

Adam Cole has been giving more emphasis on his new best friend MJF and totally ignoring Roderick Strong. Strong has often been seen throwing temper tantrums backstage, which got worse every week.

It eventually led to Roderick Strong seemingly cutting ties with Adam Cole and hanging out with The Kingdom instead. While speaking with the Under The Ring podcast, Adam Cole stated that he wishes he, MJF, and Roderick could sit down in a room and talk things out. Cole added that he is still waiting for Strong to return his calls.

“I know man, god. I’m waiting for him to return my calls, it’s an emotional time. I know he’s frustrated about a lot of things, I wish me, him, and Max could sit down in a room and just talk this thing out.”


Adam Cole is set to challenge MJF for the AEW World Championship at All In. It remains to be seen whether Roderick Strong will somehow make his presence felt in the match.
