Top AEW Star Adam Cole recently appeared on the Swerve City podcast to talk about a variety of topics such as how he still has self-confidence issues even to this day despite being in the industry for 15 years.
Adam Cole said:
“For me, certainly, I think lots of times I battle with — and Shane (Swerve Strickland), I don’t know if you agree with this or not but I definitely have some self-confidence issues, even to this day, after doing it for 15 years. I think part of the Adam Cole character as a heel that I enjoyed so much is I was this cocky, brash, no one can touch me, I am the best in the world character that is so not who I am as a person.”
Adam Cole also talked about how he is still growing and learning as time goes on, but early on in his career it was such an internal battle of always wanting to better himself and to not tear himself for feeling like he is not perfect.
Adam Cole said:
“It’s like when I walk through that curtain, it was like I felt invincible for a second and then you walk back through and again, I think at the end of the day, it comes down to because I care and we care so much about this job that you wanna be perfect and you’re constantly chasing that perfection of whether it’d be matches or promos or what have you, you wanna be the best. You really, really do so I think I’m still growing and learning as time goes on but early on, it was such an internal battle constantly of being able to balance that act between always wanna better yourself and not absolutely tearing yourself apart for feeling like you’re not perfect if that makes sense.”
