Adam Cole: Former WWE Superstar makes AEW in-ring debut next week

Former WWE NXT Superstar Adam Cole shocked the pro wrestling world when he debuted for AEW at the All Out PPV event this past weekend.

Cole joined The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, The Good Brothers and Don Callis in the ring and confirmed that he had re-joined The Elite.

The former Undisputed Era’s former leader left WWE just a few weeks ago, and due to a clause added to a contract extension, he did not have a non-compete clause, meaning he could go anywhere at any time.

AEW confirmed on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite that Cole will be in action next week on the TNT Network show.

Cole will be facing Frankie Kazarian on the Wednesday, 15th September episode of the programme, marking the first time he has competed outside of WWE for a number of years.

Kazarian is known as the ‘Elite Hunter,’ and has been hounding the group ever since The Young Bucks defeated Kazarian and Christopher Daniels, meaning that the two men could no longer compete as a tag team.

Three matches have now been confirmed for next week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, and they are as follows:

  • Shawn Spears (w/ Tully Blanchard) vs. Darby Allin (w/ Sting)
  • Adam Cole vs. Frankie Kazarian
  • Jade Cargill vs. Leyla Hirsch

The former WWE NXT Champion will likely be part of the upcoming program between Daniel Bryan, Jurassic Express, Christian Cage and The Elite, with the potential for some big-time matchups taking place over the next few months.
