Adam Cole has told the “crazy” story of his AEW debut and how it was kept a secret from pretty much everyone.
Cole debuted at the end of All Out last month along with Bryan Danielson, and as has become tradition with surprise AEW debuts, a lot of effort went into keeping it secretive.
Speaking on AEW Unrestricted, Adam Cole explained:
“As far as the actual debut, it was crazy. It was the most secretive I’ve ever had to be. I flew into Milwaukee the night before, and then spent the night in a hotel, and then got picked up and we drove two hours or whatever to the venue, while the show was going on.
“Then I’m in this trailer all day, and I didn’t realise how secretive it was, until that moment. When I was rushed into this trailer – because originally I was going to go say hi to everybody. I was walking in like, ‘Hey I wanna say hello to the crew!’, and they’re like, ‘No you’re not, you go in this trailer right now’, I’m like, ‘Oh. Crap. Okay’.
“So we’re there, and I remember sitting there in the trailer and the main event had finished, and I’m still in the trailer. So then I start to panic a little bit. I’m like, ‘Did someone forget to come get me? Like where am I supposed to go? I don’t know what the entrance looks like or the stairs, like what’s gonna happen?’. So then we finally got grabbed and I – like you said – I’m passing everyone and saying hello, and everyone’s like, ‘Oh crap, here we go’. So it was such a surreal time.”
