Cole looking forward to a long future ahead of him in wrestling. 

This coming Wednesday, Adam Cole is making his in-ring return on AEW Dynamite and he’ll be taking on Daniel Garcia. The bout will be Cole’s first sanctioned match since he competed in the main event of AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door in the summer of 2022. 

Cole had been dealing with a head injury but is now cleared to compete. Both Cole and Britt Baker were interviewed by The Pop Break ahead of the premiere of AEW: All Access on TBS. 

While speaking about his in-ring career, Cole feels he has yet to hit his prime and believes he has 10-15 more years left in the ring. 

Cole: As far as March 29th goes, I could not be more elated and excited to get back into the ring. It’s my dream, this is all I have ever wanted to do since I was nine and I am very proud of the career that I have had, but in a lot of ways I haven’t even hit my prime yet in my opinion. I feel as if I have 10-15 more years in the ring. I am very thankful that I have been given this second chance in a lot of different ways. March 29th, I am going to be a wreck.

In the AEW: All Access preview, Britt Baker made comments about Thunder Rosa. She was asked if the show will provide any clarity to the alleged issues between them. 

She does not know what will make the cut, but is hoping the takeaway is that the wrestlers who viewers watch on television are humans. Britt added that she stands by everything she said while the cameras were rolling. 

Baker: We haven’t seen the final cut yet so I don’t know what is going to be shown [and] what isn’t going to be shown. I do think it is a realistic depiction of how everyone feels personally and what everyone has gone through. We are all human beings and like I said, if anything, this humanizes us. I hope more so than any of the drama or he said/she said or anybody’s side is that’s what people take from this. They are humans, they are people who go through a lot of s*** every week. 

I can personally say I put it all out there. I gave my opinion on everything and everyone and I stand by that. If you agree with it, cool. If you don’t, that’s cool too, but at least I can say how I feel, and if anything, this is a platform to get your words out there instead of things getting twisted and turned on social media. That is one of the worst parts about this business is when the stuff you say gets misconstrued or things you never said get put out there. I think it’s a little bit of freedom in that sense.

With the lineup for this week’s Dynamite set, a new match was added to the April 5th episode as it’ll be Riho taking on AEW Women’s World Champion Jamie Hayter.
