Current Ring of Honor World Champion Adam Cole recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of SI.com to promote this weekend’s ROH 15 Anniversary pay-per-view event. During the interview, he was asked about if he will be leaving ROH to join WWE when his contract expires. He said that question comes up all the time and that it’s a question that he has dealt with since 2012. He said that he had heard the talks of him going to WWE NXT or straight to the WWE main roster, but the fact of the matter is that he is still under contract with ROH. He said that he focuses on ROH so much as opposed to his future. He doesn’t know if that will help or hurt him, but he can’t think ahead from now. “I have so much to focus on that I’m not even thinking about going to WWE. I’m completely focused on what I have in front of me right now. People ask, ‘Well, would you ever like to go?’ Yes, some day. I would be lying to you if I said I didn’t want to have my own ‘WrestleMania moment.’ Yet the goals that I have and the task I have in front of me are keeping me fully focused on taking care of business in ROH and New Japan.”
When asked about Bully Ray making his ROH debut at last Saturday’s Manhattan Mayhem event and Ray putting him through a table, he said that he has zero history with Ray. He said that he was just as shocked as everybody else when Ray decided to come down to that ring and chokeslam him through a table. He said that Ray made a statement at the event. “That entire night, with the Hardys and Bully Ray showing up, is proof, again, that Ring of Honor is the place to be. This is where people come together to put on the best wrestling show possible. But Bully Ray made a mistake coming at me, especially since I’m the one who leads Bullet Club, which cannot be stopped.”
