Adam Cole has achieved many goals since signing with WWE and placed under the NXT banner, but there is one accolade missing from his achievements. That’s to be called an NXT Champion, which is the top championship in the brand.
He has the chance to win the title when he takes on Johnny Gargano for the vacant WWE NXT Title in 2 of 3 Falls Match that will likely serve as the headliner of the NXT TakeOver: New York event.
While doing an interview with ESPN, he made one promise to fans regarding this match, which is that it will be the best match of his career.
“For many years, people who’ve been following both myself and Johnny Gargano, people have compared us quite a bit,” Cole said. “Two guys on very similar rises on the independents. A lot of times, we would work for different companies, but we ended up competing against each other. Pretty much from the very first match I had with Johnny, he was a guy that brought out the best in me, and I brought out the best of him.”
Cole continued, “For us to get the chance on literally the biggest TakeOver that we’ve ever had, I can promise you won’t be disappointed,” Cole said of the match. “I know the fans who have followed our careers know they’re in for something special. For people who haven’t, I could promise you it will be. It will probably be the toughest, most exciting [and] the best match of my entire career. I’m ready to show that to the world in New York.”
WWE will hold NXT TakeOver: New York on Friday, April 5, 2019 in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center and be broadcasted on their streaming service, WWE Network.
