A shocking revelation unfolded on tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite, as Adam Cole, despite facing an unfortunate injury, remains determined to make his triumphant return.

In front of an enthusiastic live crowd in Chicago, Adam Cole made his presence felt alongside AEW World Champion MJF, albeit on crutches. Despite his physical setback, Cole managed to capture the audience’s attention as he engaged in a segment known as “Storytime with Adam Cole, Baybay.”

Regrettably, for all the loyal Baybay fans out there, this storytime session included a somber update regarding his injury and when he might grace the wrestling ring again.

Despite willingly stepping up to face MJF at AEW Full Gear this past Saturday, Cole disclosed that he had not received medical clearance to compete. To make matters worse, he wasn’t even cleared to bear weight on his injured ankle, which necessitated the crutches. As for a return date to the squared circle or to stand by his bestie MJF, Cole remained in the dark.


However, the segment took an unexpected turn with the arrival of Samoa Joe. Cole encouraged the champion to honor his promise and grant Joe a title shot, considering Joe’s crucial assistance in retaining their ROH tag titles against The Gunns at Full Gear.

As a result, MJF and Samoa Joe were confirmed to clash for the AEW World Championship at AEW Worlds End in Long Island, New York, scheduled for December 30, 2023. Despite the uncertainty surrounding his own return, Adam Cole’s presence continues to loom large in the AEW landscape, promising further drama and excitement in the coming weeks.
