Following Sunday night’s AEW All Out pay-per-view event, Adam Cole took part in the post-show media scrum and said he was surprised that his WWE contract expired as soon as it did. He said,
“Yeah so, funny enough, believe it or not, I was also surprised. Yeah, I was under the impression that it was like six months later. So it was a surprise to me. It was a surprise to them. It was public knowledge for a lot of people that I had signed a little extension. I was in the middle of a really serious angle with Kyle O’Reilly, which was very important to me. He’s one of my best friends in the entire world. Then after that is when stuff kind of opened up for me, but very surprising to me. It was just as surprising to me.”
Cole went on to thank WWE and praised the company for his run there.
We’ll post all of the post-show media scrum interviews later today here on eWn.
