Adam Cole details how he kept his AEW debut a secret

Adam Cole made his promotional debut at the AEW All Out pay-per-view event following the main event.

Cole became a free agent when his WWE contract expired at the end of August after signing a short-term extension to finish up his storyline with Kyle O’Reilly as his deal had originally expired in July.

While doing an interview with Sports Illustrated, the new AEW signee provided details as to how the word didn’t get out that he was going to debut at All Out despite speculation that he was headed to the promotion.

“I didn’t even fly into Chicago, I flew into a different city the day before. I didn’t even stay in the same hotel as Bryan [Danielson]. We showed up to the building while the show was going on, and we waited outside in a trailer. The locker room didn’t even know until the absolute last moment. It was the most secretive debut I’ve ever been involved in, and Tony Khan took every measure to make this as big of a surprise as possible.”

Cole noted later in the interview that he gave word to AEW President Tony Khan just a few days before All Out that he was signing with the promotion.

Cole will make his AEW in-ring debut on tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite from Newark, NJ at the Prudential Center on TNT against Frankie Kazarian.
