Former NXT Champion and current AEW star Adam Cole has said there was interest from NXT for his girlfriend Britt Baker.
Baker, the AEW Women’s World Champion, has become the top star in the promotion’s women’s division over the last year, but Cole says there was definitely interest from the ‘Wednesday Night War’ opposition.
Speaking on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions, Adam Cole said:
“Britt was in such an interesting spot where, because of AEW and because she’s so talented, stuff blew up for her overnight. That’s how it felt. She had been doing great on the independents and had been doing well and formed relationships with other girls and other promoters and all of a sudden, here she is with this brand new company that is on fire and she’s knocking it out of the park.
“I know for sure that NXT was interested in saying, ‘Hey, if Britt is available please let us know’, and I know AEW was interested in me as well. It was an interesting back and forth of, ‘It’d be cool if you came here’, or, ‘It’d be cool if I came there’, but we were both under contract. Not much we could do, but we did fantasize about those things.”
Cole said he hopes he and Baker can team up in mixed tag matches in AEW “as soon as possible” since it’s been so long since they were last able to do that, and they’ve both improved during that time.
Baker recently signed a long-term deal to stay with AEW.
Adam Cole reunites with the Young Bucks as the SuperKliq against Christian Cage, Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus on Friday’s AEW Rampage, which was taped last night.
