“It’s incredibly important,” Cole, who grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, said of AEW’s move into the region. “And the funny thing is I’ve been thinking about everything this past week, just in general with pro wrestling and my own career. … Aside from the fact that that Northeast area for the longest time had a stronghold on not only the independents but pro wrestling as a whole, I got my start in the Northeast area.”
Cole also stated: “It’s so incredibly awesome that I’m getting to make my in-ring debut with AEW in that area,” he said. “To me, those fans have been some of the most passionate, some of the most excited and some of the most dedicated that I have ever seen. The fact that I kind of cut my teeth in the Northeast area is something that those fans hold near and dear to them, and it’s something that I hold near and dear to me, too.”
