WWE NXT star Adam Cole has been a top-tier star on the gold and black brand since his debut back in 2017. Now, as it turns out he might be leaving the company soon and head to AEW. WWE Hall of Famer Booker T believes it will be a good move for him.

CM Punk also dropped a subtle hint about Cole going to AEW. All these lead one to believe that Cole is done with WWE for good.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame Podcast, Booker T talked about Adam Cole potentially making his way to AEW. Booker T believes that AEW needs someone like Cole in its roster.
“I don’t look at it like a single situation, I look at it from a unit perspective. I look at it like if I got a football team, I got to fill every spot on the roster and everybody has to be the best at what they do in that position on the roster. That’s the way I’m looking at it right there so as well as if this was the military. I need another soldier that’s going to be ready to step up in ranks and commands in the drop of a hat.
“A guy like Adam Cole is definitely a guy like that. He can work, he can perform at a very high level, you can put him with anybody and he can go out and give you what you need. That for me, is what I’m thinking about when it comes to a show. Guys that can get out there and perform, guys that can get out there and go and bring behinds in seats and ratings to his television product that we have here. So yeah, he’d be a hell of a soldier, a hell of a teammate to that addition any way you look at it. The guy is obviously a team player because he’s been down in NXT since day one.”
We will see if Cole makes his way to AEW.
