However, this particular reference Omega uploaded on his Instagram was something the fans recognized instantly; especially those who followed Adam Cole before his NXT days.

Kenny Omega teases the return of Adam Cole

Omega took to his Instagram and uploaded a picture of “dead” Adam Cole. This was from episode 54 of Being The Elite YouTube channel when Cole was killed at the end.

Adam Cole’s WWE expired after Sundays’ NXT TakeOver 36 event. There, he suffered a loss against his former best friend, Kyle O’Reilly in a grueling bout.

This subtle picture might be a hint that maybe Cole is returning to BTE. He could even make his debut for Tony Khan’s company. Notably, Cole is not serving the non-compete clause and can show up anywhere.

There have been several teases from Omega and Young Bucks over the past few days that would show that Cole would move to AEW.

Soon after Cole lost to O’Reilly, Bucks changed their Twitter header to Matt Jackson and Kenny Omega wearing Ghostbusters outfits with Nick Jackson in a ghost costume, presumably hinting that Cole is about to come back from the dead.

WWE is currently not making any plans for Adam Cole going to the main roster, and Cole is not showing any interest in signing a new deal.

This could lead to AEW and working in Tony Khan’s company won’t be difficult for the former NXT champion because his old peer and his partner Britt Baker are over there.
