During the NXT TakeOver: In Your House Global Press Conference yesterday, Jason Powell of Pro Wrestling Dot Net asked an interesting question to Adam Cole. He asked if Cole was content being in NXT permanently or is he anxious to move on to the WWE main roster.

He said, “Well first of all, Adam Cole isn’t anxious about anything. In regards to RAW and SmackDown, could Adam Cole show up on RAW or SmackDown? Maybe. Would Adam Cole run RAW or SmackDown if he showed up? You damn right he would.”

Although he didn’t deny moving to Raw or SmackDown, Cole added that he isn’t done with NXT. Plus, revealed he’s tired of being asked the same question about moving to the main roster again and again. After all, he doesn’t want to move on after one record-breaking title reign.

He further shared why he plans on staying in NXT for the foreseeable future. He said, “I have an attachment to this brand. When I joined NXT in 2017, I watched this brand continue to grow and evolve into something that can’t be touched because I stand by this. I’m very very proud to be a part of this brand. But more importantly, I feel like I do have more to accomplish.”


Not just that, but Adam Cole ‘BAY-BAY’ also made a bold statement. What was it? Well, he said the NXT roster would beat the Raw and SmackDown roster on any day of the week, and twice on Sundays!

After listening to his statements, one thing is certain that he does not plan to move anywhere for the time being. In fact, who knows? He might even be a NXT Original for the rest of his career just like Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa have planned to be. What do you think?
