All Elite Wrestling made history on Sunday with their third annual ‘All Out’ pay=per-view event, which featured several big name debuts. One of these names was none other than former NXT Champion – Adam Cole. In a recent revelation by Ringside News and Steve Carrier, it is being reported by the outlet that Adam Cole turned down an offer which would have had him stay in WWE and involved in the WWE main roster – as a manager, a humiliating role for one of the world’s bes wrestlers. This top WWE name recently called Adam Cole a ‘scumbag’.
According to Carrier via Twitter: “Adam Cole is All Elite, but he did have an offer to stay from WWE. We are told Bruce Prichard really “had his hooks” in Cole and wanted him. Their creative pitch was underwhelming. They wanted Cole to be a heel manager on the main roster. Don’t shoot the messenger, Bay Bay.”

Over on the ever-popular Squared Circle sub-reddit, professional wrestling fans have been abuzz since the shocking AEW debuts of Adam Cole, Bryan Danielson and others. One user named Sports_hysterics stated this on in regards to Cole’s debut: “Genuinely, I was more shocked by Cole debuting. I know the Elite were making allusions. I figured they were just trolling as they usually do. I fucking popped hard when his music hit, which was just absolutely perfect. This show was just so satisfying. Its been quite a long time since I’ve enjoyed a ppv like this.”
