As many wrestling fans are well aware by now, Adam Cole’s WWE contract has expired and he is officially a free agent after being unable to come to terms on a new contract. According to a report from Fightful, as of Tuesday WWE came off as “less confident” in locking in Cole with a new contract and this was the reason why WWE sent out a memo stating that Cole was no longer with the organization.
Much speculation has begun stating that Adam Cole is heading to AEW in the near future. As of 5PM EST, the AEW roster had not been informed that Cole was signing a deal with the company. This is in contrast to CM Punk, who was not kept hidden backstage and was seen hanging out with the AEW roster before his AEW debut at Rampage: The First Dance.
While those in a position of power in AEW usually meet inquiries with a definitive “yes” or “no”, asking about Cole has been met with “much more quiet responses.”
