As we’ve been reporting here on eWn, Adam Cole is officially a free agent and can sign wherever he wants. While there was a tease from Britt Baker D.M.D on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite where she said she had some big news on a “free agent” who had signed with AEW, it turned out to be Baker herself as she revealed she’d signed a “long-term” contract extension with the company.
According to a report from Fightful, Adam Cole made it very clear “well ahead” of his WWE contract expiring that he would not be giving up his Twitch account and that if it came down to keeping his Twitch channel vs. re-signing with WWE, he would have went with Twitch. One source claimed the matter was “non-negotiable” for Cole.
Several higher-ups in WWE were also said to have been hesitant to talk to him about the situation because they “didn’t have much leverage” in the matter.
