Will Adam Cole join his partner in AEW?

Currently, Adam Cole is working on an extended contract with WWE. It’s not confirmed if Cole will continue to stay at WWE NXT following TakeOver 36. In fact, his original contract with WWE NXT expired following The Great American Bash.

Now, while WWE and Cole are negotiating terms, AEW has already sent their contract to Cole. If he agrees with it, he can start working with AEW as soon as his extended contract with WWE ends. As per the extended contract, he does not have to abide by any non-compete clause on the contract’s expiration.

Neither has AEW nor Adam Cole confirmed if Cole is seriously considering the offer from the company.
