Adam Cole Compares The Freedom In AEW To WWE NXT’s Approach AEW

AEW star Adam Cole has compared the freedom in All Elite Wrestling to the approach of WWE NXT.

Appearing on Sirius XM’s Busted Open Radio, the former NXT Champion discussed the Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament Quarterfinal and his run in AEW so far.

When asked about the difference between his time in NXT and working under Tony Khan, Cole answered:

“I’d say, by far the biggest difference is NXT had a very hands-on approach, which is wonderful,” Cole explained.”It’s a great learning experience when you look at guys like Shawn Michaels and Triple H, who have an exact vision of where they wanted it to go, how they wanted the promos to sound, what they wanted us to say. Then as time went on, I got more freedom, I guess you can call it. Whether it be with promos and matches, because they started to trust me.

“With AEW, it was from the beginning. No one has ever handed me a script for a promo. No one has ever told me directly how they want my match to go. You get that creative process and that freedom to do as you please. Especially if you’re someone who’s trusted fortunately, but with AEW from the beginning, I’ve been trusted. I’d say, they definitely give you a lot more stuff to play with and using your own creative process to go about things how you want to.”

Adam Cole will face FTR’s Dax Harwood in the Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament Quarterfinal Match on Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite from Long Island, New York.
