Former WWE Superstar and NXT Champion Adam Cole recently appeared on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette and revealed the discussions he had with Triple H and Shawn Michaels before he signed with All Elite Wrestling.
Cole has been publicly praising both of the WWE legends over the past few weeks, as well as discussing what they were like to work with backstage in NXT.
Interestingly, Cole admitted just how much both men knew about his expected main roster debut and his eventually leaving the company.
Adam Cole revealed that he was extremely open with both men when he decided to leave WWE and take free agency:
“He (Hunter) understood that I wanted to continue doing stuff like that, he knew my Twitch was super important to me. And I know that’s a big no no in WWE, which is unfortunate. So I was very open and very honest with him, to the point where I was still thinking about what I was going to do when my contract was up. He knew that. And then when the decision was made, he knew that and Shawn knew that. So I’ve always been open and honest with them right out of the gate, because they’ve always been open and honest with me. I love Hunter, I love Shawn. They have been nothing but incredible to me, they’ve made me better as a performer. I don’t think I’d be where I’m at in AEW right now without those two and I really do mean that. When I think about the performer I was in Ring of Honor, as much as I learned and as many great people as I got to work with, getting that four years with them is priceless. It’s absolutely priceless.”
