Adam Cole On Chris Jericho: ‘As Soon As I Joined AEW, I Knew I’d Eventually Share The Ring With Him’

Speaking with Justin Barrasso from Sports Illustrated, Adam Cole talked about his in-ring return after being on the sideline for months due to a concussion and more.


You can check out some highlights from the interview below:


On coming back as a babyface: “It’s been an interesting transition. I’ve played the vile, despicable heel for so long. But coming out of this injury, and being able to get back in the ring and wrestle again, it feels like such a natural fit to be the babyface. It’s a challenge I need, and I’m enjoying it a lot.”


On feuding with Chris Jericho: “As soon as I joined AEW and stepped in the locker room, I knew the day would come when I shared the ring with Chris Jericho. He is someone I’ve studied and looked up to for a long time. The fan in me is incredibly excited.”


On wanting to become a World Champion: “Throughout my career, I’ve always said my goal is to be the world champion. I want to be AEW world champion. But at this point, I have a whole new appreciation for this job. Every single week, I get on an airplane and go to a show. I’m so thankful for that. Wherever else that lands me is icing on the cake. My goal is to keep wrestling for a long time. This is me. I’m back where I belong.”
