Adam Cole has not had good luck with injuries during his time with All Elite Wrestling. During the battle for the throne between AEW World Champion MJF and ROH TV Champion Samoa Joe at AEW Dynamite Grand Slam, Adam Cole injured his ankle.
The Summer Bromance between MJF and Adam Cole has been one of the best storylines AEW has ever produced, with both superstars going on to face each other in the main event of the historic All In. However, Cole’s injury might change how the story unfolds.
Adam Cole injury update
Maxwell Jacob Friedman and Samoa Joe have a lot of history and during the final minutes of their battle at AEW Dynamite Grand Slam, Adam Cole interfered in between to help his best friend MJF retain the title. During the run-in, he jumped off the ramp and landed awkwardly on the floor. He could be seen limping throughout the whole spot which made it evident he was in discomfort.
Fightful reported that he was struggling with his ankle and was in immense pain backstage. He was taken to the hospital and was seen on crutches afterward, which doesn’t sound like good news. The nature and extent of Cole’s injury are unknown, but it’s sure to impact the main event scene, as the story between him and MJF has been one of the most intriguing and hot topics in professional wrestling right now.
Former Wrestlers’ advice for Adam Cole
Adam Cole has faced a lot of scrutiny in his career due to his physique, with many questioning whether he has the body of a professional wrestler competing at the top of the card. Hall of Famer Booker T was quoted as saying, “We gotta get more weight on Adam Cole, you know what I mean? That’s his problem, he’s light, bottom light. We gotta get some muscle on this kid. That’s probably one of the reasons why he’s going out there, getting hurt because it can’t be the schedule at AEW.”
The former NXT star had one of the best runs in the company, and it’s arguable that he elevated the black and gold brand to levels never seen before. He has been the target of a lot of physique-related criticisms throughout his career. Industry veteran Konnan spoke on a podcast and mentioned how he is a big fan of him as a wrestler and an individual but only having those traits won’t work in the big leagues and he’s got to look the part and reinvent himself.
Adam Cole has faced body-shaming over the years, but many people in the industry have supported him, including Road Dogg and Renee Paquette. Despite the criticism, it’s undeniable that he’s performing at an incredibly high level and involved in one of the most exciting stories in wrestling recently.
Triple H hand-picked Adam Cole to be the face of NXT because he saw greatness in him, and many have even compared him to Shawn Michaels. His physical appearance will never diminish the fact that he’s one of the best performers the squared circle has ever seen.
