AEW’s Adam Cole has revealed that he’s interested in another NJPW run, recalling some of his previous tours in Japan.
Speaking on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette, Cole pointed out that he’s had the opportunity to wrestle in some notable venues in Japan, including Koruakan Hall and the Tokyo Dome.
Also noting that he’d love to revisit some independent promotions, Cole said:
“New Japan is something I’d like to do more of. I had done a fair amount of tours, it was almost 10. I got to wrestle at Koruakan Hall and the Tokyo Dome and Sumo Hall and all these really cool venues. I enjoyed my time there and right as I was kind of find my footing there or gain momentum, that was when I left.
“The chance to go back there would be really cool. I think back so fondly of my time in ROH. PWG, I had some of the times of my life there. I got my start in CZW, which is where I met Jon (Moxley). There’s a bunch of really cool things that I would like to do. Independent wrestling is a blast.”
Cole wrestled a number of matches for NJPW in the latter half of 2017, before winning the ROH World Championship from Kyle O’Reilly at Wrestle Kingdom XI in 2017. His last NJPW match took place at New Years Dash 2017, teaming with The Young Bucks.
Cole debuted for AEW during the closing moments of All Out, moments before Bryan Danielson made a surprise appearance for the company. The former NXT Champion has recalled facing Danielson on a 2019 edition of SmackDown.
