Former ROH World Champion Adam Cole recently spoke with ESPN about various topics. During the interview, he was asked about possibly signing with WWE when his contract with ROH expires on May 1st. He said he would want to start in NXT because he is a fan of the brand and that he thinks the brand is cool. He said that he thinks the Takeover shows are awesome and that the fans are great. He loves the roster in NXT and thinks it’s something that’s going to be looked at as a very special time in pro wrestling, and he wants to be a part of it. “Secondly, of course in a perfect world if I went to NXT, I wouldn’t want to be there forever; but I like the idea of going there and performing there and getting accustomed to the WWE audience and them getting accustomed to me and then eventually making the move to Raw or Smackdown. I think it’d be a lot of fun, and I think I would really enjoy working in front of that audience.”
When he was asked about the current state of pro wrestling, he said that it’s been a crazy this year. He said that guys you would never have thought would leave WWE did leave and guys you never thought would go to WWE is joining the company. He noted that it’s the closest thing to the Attitude Era that we’ve had as far as not knowing where guys are gonna show up and who’s gonna end up where. He said that it has created this cool environment for the fans and wrestlers.
