What was the hardest part about jumping-ship from WWE to AEW for Adam Cole?
The Elite member spoke about this exact subject during his recent appearance on the “Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette” podcast.
Featured below is an excerpt from their discussion where he weighs in on this topic with his thoughts.
“Very hard. That was probably the hardest part of the decision I think. I really formed a close bond with Woods and Swiss (Cesaro) and Breeze over the pandemic. The backstory of that is so funny too, because Claudio and Breeze and Creed all wanted to start producing more content since the pandemic started. And they were like ‘I think we want to start playing Uno, we need a fourth guy.’ I didn’t know this, but when I did the first episode, I was kind of on trial. That was my audition and I didn’t know that. I was like ‘alright, I’ll do it’, and they all knew immediately ‘oh my god, this is our four man crew.’
“I talk to those guys every single day. We have a group chat and we talk every single day. So that makes me feel better, because it feels like I haven’t lost that connection with those guys. But the most important thing, for sure, was so many different messages that we have gotten, so many different situations that people have been in. I’m talking about family members passing away or an animal passing away or them losing their jobs or whatever it was. And them saying those videos really helped them get through a really rough time is so crazy and so humbling and so cool. I wish so badly there was a way for us to still do stuff together, I really do. But I did say it’s not goodbye, it’s just see you later. So it doesn’t mean it’s done forever. But I love those guys to death, I loved everyone who watched Uno and watched all the content we did, because what an amazing group of people. I’m going to miss it a lot.”
