In the middle of Cole’s negotiation with WWE NXT for a new contract, AEW put forward their contract on Cole’s plate. Considering the way AEW is pushing forward in the industry, their contracts are becoming increasingly appealing to the pro-wrestlers.

Moreover, Cole will not have to wait for thirty days after his extended contract expires to work with AEW. As soon as the contract expires, he becomes a free agent. Hence, he can start working with AEW from the very next day.

As of now, Adam Cole has accepted none of the contracts. The situation is still developing, and updates are due for arrival.

Adam Cole will be a huge gain for AEW, enormous loss for WWE

First question – Can WWE afford to lose Adam Cole? The superstar is an integral part of NXT. It’s important for Cole to stay with NXT until the company can bring someone on par with him.

Karrion Kross and Finn Balor have moved to the main roster. So, NXT is anyway not working with an extremely enhanced roster. If WWE loses Cole too, it will affect the overall brand negatively.

However, Baker has revealed that she will not be the driving force bringing Cole to AEW, it’s the endless storylines that will be responsible.
