The wrestling world speculated Cole would debut for AEW because there were multiple Easter eggs ahead of his arrival. However, Cole’s former arch-nemesis from WWE NXT wished him well in his new venture.

Former NXT UK Champion Keith Lee took to Twitter and acknowledged his time with Adam Cole during their time together in NXT. However, he also ends the note with a “see you around” phrase, which might mean we could see the two superstars fighting once again. Maybe in AEW?

“Safe travels brudda. Do all the things. …But also stop being a meanie head. See you around.”

WWE had crazy plans for Keith Lee and Adam Cole

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE had ideas for Adam Cole to move up to the WWE main roster and become a manager for a heel Keith Lee.

It was also noted that Adam Cole would go through a name change so that the audience does not confuse him with WWE commentator Michael Cole.

This idea did not come from the WWE creative team but was the brainchild of either Vince McMahon or a top company executive like Bruce Prichard.

Surely, this managerial position would have not suited Adam Cole, as he would have limited matches. And with his changed name, the WWE Universe would not get to scream, BAY BAY!
