Success in NXT and AEW

Joining WWE, NXT Debut

In 2017 he got to sign a professional contract with WWE for the time. Before signing with the promotion in 2017 he worked in the promotion on a couple of different occasions, one of his memorable appearances was from July 2010. Cole made his NXT debut in August 2017 at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III along with Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish. Together this trio is famously started to be addressed as the Undisputed Era.

The Undisputed Era

The Undisputed Era went on to become one of the top factions in NXT history and some fans even believe that it was the best ever faction that NXT has ever produced. Later, Roderick Strong also joined the stable after having an excellent feud with them. At a point, the Undisputed Era had all the gold of the NXT.

Championship Success

Cole went on to become one of the top stars of NXT. He won all the possible championships of the brand and he even became the second ever NXT Triple Crown champion. He had also been the inaugural NXT North American Champion. Unfortunately, by February 2021, the Undisputed Era was broken as all the talents of the faction were released slowly. It is believed that Covid-19 destroyed all the remaining potential of the faction.

Final Days in WWE

Cole’s final feud in WWE was with his teammate Kyle O’Reilly and after getting beaten by him twice, Cole decided to leave WWE and not extend his contract with the promotion. As he was one of the top stars of the NXT, the fans expected him to be a huge star on the main roster as well. Unfortunately, he could never work regularly in the main roster of WWE.

Iconic Quotes From Adam Cole

“When I was in school, if I was talking as myself and I was presenting something as myself or having to answer a question, I was so nervous. I would get red in the face; I would feel sweaty. I hated it. But anytime I was performing, like, if it was a talent show, or if it’s through wrestling, I’m portraying or being someone else, I’m so comfortable.”

“I do feel in 2018 that pro wrestling has gone in such a different direction. Before, things were so black and white; now, it’s shades of grey. It’s not so much good guys and bad guys: there are people who are put in situations who do the right or wrong things, but people react to them like they are stars.”

“Seth Rollins was just leaving Ring Of Honor when I was coming in, so I’ve heard him say very nice things about me in interviews and stuff. I always say nice things about him because of that respect I have for him. I watched him when I was working the independents while he was wrestling at Ring Of Honor, and I used to be blown away by his work then.”

“When I was first started, when I was eighteen, I wrestled for a company that had a very hardcore fanbase and demanded a lot from its wrestlers. So, every single match, I would do every move possible. I would land on the concrete floor; I would land really high on my head just to try to impress the fans.”

“So when you’re following guys like Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish or The Young Bucks or Jay Lethal or The Briscoe Brothers, and you’re going out and trying to really stick out and have a very memorable, talked-about main event, or the match of the night, like the main event should be, it’s really challenging.”

“You realize, as time goes on, there is a certain expectation now in 2018 where fans want to see cool, exciting, hard-hitting sports entertainment or hard-hitting pro wrestling, and there are ways to give them that without necessarily putting yourself in the hospital that night or not being able to move the next morning.”

“I had been wrestling with a fracture in my elbow and a slight tear in my triceps for quite some time, but it was continuing to get worse. As I worked through it, I ended up dislocating my shoulder and tearing my labrum. All of these injuries were on the same arm, so things like working out or even sleeping became increasingly difficult.”
