Adam Cole is most definitely one of the top Superstars in WWE NXT right now and has been one of the mainstays of NXT televisions since his debut in 2017. Adam Cole leaving WWE date was also previously revealed.
Adam Cole was said to have signed a contract with WWE along with his Undisputed Era brethren as stated by Wrestling Observer Newsletter in June of last year. It was stated that Cole’s contract with NXt will not expire until fall 2024, likely around September.
However, that turned out to not be true as his contract is set to expire right after the WWE SummerSlam event on August 21st. Now that his contract has expired, it was said that Adam Cole is done with NXT for good and is unlikely to ever go back there.
Adam Cole ultimately went to AEW as he made his debut at AEW All Out on September 5th. Adam Cole recently spoke to Oral Sessions, where he revealed he had 30 minutes to get ready before getting on a plane to take him to SmackDown as WWE were struggling to put on a show that night due to many WWE Superstars being stranded in Saudi Arabia.
“I got in there and Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar were in the ring cutting a promo. The whole day was nuts. I remember it was 1:30 in the afternoon and I’m walking around just having a normal afternoon. Just very relaxed. And I get a call and they go ‘you need to get on this airplane by 3 o’clock and you need to go to this airport.’ And the airport was an hour away. I had 30 minutes to pack everything, get ready to go. I got there, we wait forever, the plane took forever to take off.”
