Adam Cole Reflects On His WWE NXT Debut, Teaming With Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly, Ronda Rousey Thanks Atlanta
Posted On September 3, 2021
Undisputed Era leader, Adam Cole, recently spoke with Sporting News to promote NXT Takeover New Orleans, and he reflected on his debut and teaming with Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly. Below are some highlights.
Being paired with Fish & Reilly:
“Me, Bobby, and Kyle have talked about this before. For some reason, the three of us never put into our brains that they were going to put us together. We had no idea what we were going to do but there was never a point where any one of us said ‘hey, maybe they’ll the three of us together.’ When they did, we were stoked. So excited. Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly are seriously like brothers to me. I’ve known those guys for years. I’m about as close, personal friends with them as you can get with anyone. When they decided they were going to throw us all together, I was like this is amazing. We were immediately stoked about it just because being able to share pressure with someone, being able to ping pong ideas with someone creatively, being able to share success or to share cool moments and cool opportunities with your really, really good friends.”
Debuting in NXT:
“For me, it was definitely a mixed bag of emotions. Obviously, very excited. New York, specifically, has been very good to me throughout my wrestling career. I’ve gotten to do a lot of cool things in New York. The biggest thing going through my brain was that I just really, really hoped the people care. I remember thinking I’m coming out and attacking the NXT Champion at the end of the show and standing in the middle of the ring. I really hope the people care. That they know who I am. All these thoughts are going through your brain. To be able to come out and feel the buzz and see people pointing and people screaming ‘oh my god, he’s here’ was such a cool moment for me. It’s certainly top three definitely favorite moments for me in my career so far. That was really exciting. Then with me capping it off walking up the ramp and looking at the people and doing ‘Adam Cole BayBay’ for the first time in WWE and everybody doing it with me was really cool. That was when I was like “OK, let’s go, time to go to work.”
