Adam Cole Talks Reasons He Jumped From WWE To AEW

Adam Cole Talks Reasons He Jumped From WWE To AEW – During a panel discussion at Motor City Comic Con, Adam Cole says three big factors pushed him to sign with AEW last year.

But he stressed that the biggest was his relationship with Britt Baker. Cole says it was difficult for them to spend time together while he was working for WWE.

“One of the biggest things was getting to be around and see Britt a lot more. At the time, our schedules were so different that there’d be some times that I’d see her for maybe half a day, one day a week. Sometimes I wouldn’t see her for weeks at a time. So getting to travel with her and just being behind the curtain when she walks through after she’s done a match or a promo is really nice.”

Cole spent four years in WWE, most of it as a top start in the company’s NXT brand. Cole won the NXT Championship and the NXT North American Championship. But while he was enjoying great personal success, he was also watching what was happening in AEW.

“It just looked like so much fun,” Cole recalled. “You know, I had known tons of people on the roster, but to see these crazy, wild crowds every single week, I was like, ‘God, I’d love to wrestle in front of these fans.’”

Cole eventually left WWE after his contract expired last August. Just days later, he made his AEW debut at the end of the company’s “All Out” pay-per-view last September.

Cole said another major factor in his decision to jump to AEW was his not wanting to give up streaming on Twitch.
