Adam Cole recently spoke with Rolling Stone about various topics. During the interview, Cole was asked about leaving Ring of Honor and jumping ship to the biggest wrestling promotion in the world, WWE. Cole brought up that he did have a tryout with WWE years ago, but it didn’t work out. Cole did state that he had no plans of joining WWE but would never say never.
“I did a tryout for WWE years ago. At the time it didn’t really work out between me and them, really on both sides. It was a bad timing thing. And as we’ve gone, there have been a lot of things said about me joining WWE. I’m under contract to Ring of Honor though, so I haven’t been able to talk to anybody else. I have to say this though, and this is the truth, I think a big reason that I’ve gotten where I’ve gotten is that I focus on the task that’s put in front of me. I just joined the Bullet Club, I have a huge run coming up in New Japan. I’m not even thinking about WWE. I have a lot of work to do here. Obviously, with the way the landscape is changing, never say never. You never know what could happen when my contract is up. That’s the cool thing about wrestling these days, you always have to stay tuned.”
Cole also talked about working in NJPW and more. You can read the entire interview here.
