Adam Cole signs with All Elite Wrestling

He is All Elite, bay bay!

Only two weeks removed from his final appearance in NXT, Adam Cole is officially All Elite!

After the conclusion of AEW All Out‘s main event, the retaining AEW World Champion, Kenny Omega, brought his Elite teammates down to the ring to continue beating down the challenger, Christian Cage, as well as the members of Jurassic Express. Omega then took to the microphone and said that the only people who could take the championship off of him were either not there, retired, or dead.

The lights then went out, and when they came back up, Adam Cole — who was “killed off” by the Elite in his last official appearance on YouTube series Being the Elite prior to signing with WWE in 2017 — made his return to pro wrestling by pretending to threaten the Elite, then turning around and superkicking Jungle Boy instead, reuniting with his former stable.

Adam Cole’s last appearance on TV was at NXT Takeover: 36, where he and former-teammate Kyle O’Reilly battled in a 2-out-of-3 falls match. Despite confused rumors about Cole’s contract status and reports of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon personally inviting Cole to a meeting at an August SmackDown taping, Cole’s contract officially expired on August 27, 2021, allowing him to continue his career promptly without a built-in no-compete clause.

With Cole’s long history with Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks plus his immediate “overshadowing” as Bryan Danielson debuted minutes after him, it appears that Adam Cole has a lot of scores to settle going forward at All Elite Wrestling.
