Ring Of Honor’s first action figure line was apparently a success because they have recently announced series two of the line. But much like series one of the line, it will include someone in the series who is no longer with the company.
Series one included Kevin Steen who was already wrestling as Kevin Owens in WWE by the time the ROH figure hit the market. It was said at the time some people in WWE were kind of ticked off another company was putting out a figure for someone on their roster but there was nothing they could do about it.
It obviously takes some amount of time to get these figures produced because series two of ROH’s line of action figures is set to feature Adam Cole. Adam Cole has also already left Ring Of Honor and some people have said he might be flirting with the idea of making a run with WWE. He had a cup of coffee with WWE when he went for a tryout in 2013, but nothing ever came of it. Instead, he decided to make himself a top name in ROH and New Japan.
These action figures by Figures Toy Company really are top notch though. The detail is very good down to the artwork on Cole’s trunks. We wonder how long it will be until Adam Cole shows up inWWE. It’s been said they’ve been looking at him for quite a while but still haven’t offered him a deal yet.

Matt Jackson of the Young Bucks commented about the fact his friend and former Bullet Club brethren is no longer with WWE in a way that implies he’s dead. Adam Cole isn’t dead so don’t get that assumption. He’s just no longer under contract with ROH. Allegedly he’s waiting on a deal from WWE which would be awesome if it’s true.
