Adam Cole: My Passion And Motivation To Get Back In The Ring Is At An All-Time High

Adam Cole is looking forward to wrestling again.

Cole has not wrestled since AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door in June 2022, as two head injuries have kept him on the shelf. He returned on the January 11 episode of AEW Dynamite, and his first match back is set for the March 29 episode of AEW Dynamite.

Speaking with John Orquiola of Screen Rant, Cole shared his thoughts on his return to the ring. When asked what fans can expect to see from him, he stated that he’ll be better than ever.

“Pro wrestling is something I love more than anything in the entire world,” Cole said. “In April, it’ll be 15 years that I’ve been in the pro wrestling industry. And the longest amount of time I was ever away, with the exception of this injury, was one month. So over a 15-year period, I was away from the ring and traveling and being on the road only for one month. Now I look at this entire recovery process, and I think about how long I was away and just how badly I couldn’t wait to get back to work again.”

“There was a real scare there for a minute of whether I was even going to be able to come back in the first place,” Cole said. “But when I knew that was possible, my excitement has gone through the roof. I’ve never lost my appreciation for this job, and how much I love doing what I do. But at the same time, in a lot of ways being given the second chance to go back and do what I love more than anything in the world has me incredibly excited. So I mean this wholeheartedly: On March 29th, the fans are gonna get the absolute best version of me that there’s ever been, and I really believe that the passion and the motivation and the excitement to get back into that ring is at an all-time high for me.”

Cole is set to speak on the March 22 episode of AEW Dynamite. WrestleZone will have coverage of the show as it airs.
