Lawlor wished Cole well on his recovery.
Hours out from AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door, AEW President Tony Khan shared that Adam Cole was dealing with an illness. As a result, he was pulled from the show and his match against Tom Lawlor was no longer taking place.
Lawlor did wrestle in a dark match and scored a win over Serpentico. While appearing on Wrestling Observer Live, Lawlor wished Cole well on his recovery and said he hopes to make the match happen in the future.
I hope Adam Cole recovers from whatever affliction he’s suffering from. I hope it’s not the flu. I hope it’s something less like that… I hope he recovers, I hope we can get that match done in the future but I’ve got a lot of things on my plate coming up and quite frankly, I don’t know when it’s gonna go down so…
Cole is scheduled for the 6/28 Dynamite in a promo segment.
