Adam Cole (Bay Bay) made his debut for All Elite Wrestling (AEW) at the end of last month’s All Out pay-per-view, where he joined up with the Elite.
The Young Bucks recently spoke to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, where they spoke about how delighted they are to see Cole in the promotion, with Matt Jackson saying:
“I can’t fully express the happiness I currently have, sharing a ring with Adam Cole again. His positivity and energy had really helped the morale in our locker room. I haven’t stopped smiling since he showed up. When he arrived, it felt like we finally found that missing piece of the puzzle. The whole gang is finally back together. We hadn’t worked together in five years, but the chemistry was still there. The dude is a star and getting some of the biggest reactions I’ve ever heard.”
Adam Cole was infamously ‘killed off’ in his final appearance on Being The Elite before signing with WWE back in 2017, so it’s nice to see him alive and well in AEW after seemingly being resurrected.
When asked about how they managed to resurrect their friend, the Bucks said that the only thing crazier is letting a superstar leave to join the competition. Nick Jackson said:
“I’m still trying to figure that out. But even crazier than resurrecting the dead is letting a superstar walk away from your company to join the competition.”
The Bucks were then asked about competition in wrestling, which they welcomed. Nick said:
“I love the competition. It makes pro wrestling so much more fun to watch. This is what wrestling needed for the last 20 years. I’m just glad we’ve helped bring that excitement back. Let’s f***ing go.”
AEW and WWE are set to do a head-to-head battle tonight for 30 minutes, with the end of SmackDown and beginning of Rampage overlapping. Both half hours will air commercial free.
