AEW star Adam Cole has revealed the main goals he’s currently focusing on ahead of his return to the ring.
The popular star made his AEW TV return on the January 11 edition of Dynamite to announce that he’s preparing for his in-ring comeback.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Cole noted that he does aim to become AEW World Champion one day, but noted that right now, he’s focusing on being able to get back into the ring:
“I do think, and I’ve had this mentality, literally since I started. To go back a little bit, I remember when I first started training, I had this (goal) of, ‘Okay, I want to get signed by WWE, and I want to be the world champion, and I want to main event WrestleMania.’
“When you think about all that, and how far away that goal is, it’s so overwhelming, especially for someone like me and the way that my brain operates.
“So I remember, very early on, saying, ‘I’m gonna drive myself crazy if I obsess on certain goals, especially goals that I can’t control, per se.’ I’m gonna take every day by day, and just be the best version of myself, in the ring or on the microphone, that I possibly can be.
“I’ve kind of instituted that mentality throughout my entire career. At this current time right now, I’m just so excited to be back.
“I can’t wait to get back in the ring, and I’m so thankful that I’m actually able to get back into the ring, especially with that scare of thinking it might not happen.
“Regarding the AEW World Championship, of course. I would love the chance to be the AEW World Champion. That’s absolutely a goal in the back of my mind.
“Again, that’s the stamp of approval from the company that you work for, saying, ‘Alright, we’re gonna get behind this guy. We’re gonna give this guy the ball.’
“So certainly, being the AEW World Champion someday is a goal of mine, but currently, in this moment right now, I’m just thinking about being able to get back in the ring and wrestle, and being back on the road. That’s a big win for me.”
Cole last wrestled at the June 26 AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event, competing in the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship fourway bout.
Recalling the bout, Cole has opened up about losing his memory after suffering a concussion mid-match.
