Another newsmaker is the new AEW joinee and former NXT star, Adam Cole. Unlike many ex WWE stars, Cole shared surprising thoughts about Vince McMahon. He has only good words to say about his former boss and the promotion. He shared interesting details of the conversation that took place between him and Vince before he joined the rival camp.
Speaking at the media scrum, Adam Cole said, “The talk (with McMahon) went great. We had a really, really good conversation about a lot of different things. But the actual conversation itself was awesome. I had no bad experience with him whatsoever. He is an intimidating man that definitely commands respect in a lot of ways, but the experience itself was totally fine.”
However, he did mention one deal-breaking thing that led him to AEW. Cole said that he can talk about anything with Tony Khan, which made him feel good and triggered him to become an All Elite.
