Adam Cole would like the opportunity to test himself against “The Rated R Superstar.”
When Edge returned in the 2020 Royal Rumble, a whole new host of possible dream matches opened up across all three major WWE brands. When Edge retired in 2011, NXT was still a competition series attempting to make reality television and not the revolutionary third brand that it would become under the watchful eye of Triple H.
Speaking with Ryan Satin, Adam Cole, one of the major performers that have become synonymous with the brand, discussed what getting to wrestle Edge in a dream match would mean to him.
“So, so, so, so badly. Now I feel bad for not mentioning Edge as one of my top heels as well, now that you said that. The problem is, there are so many good people. I’ll give a list, then we’ll bring somebody else up and I’m like, ‘Oh, crap. I should’ve added him to the list.’ Edge is one of the greatest heels of all time. His run, no matter where he was – as a tag team wrestler, as a World Champion, as a heel, as a babyface – it didn’t matter. He was just so fantastic. And the fact that Edge, indeed, does want to come back and not just wrestle every now and then, but is excited at the idea of wanting to come and wrestle guys in NXT.
“I remember years ago Edge used to come down to the Performance Center and share his knowledge with people, just because he has such a passion for pro wrestling, and it was so cool to see that and how important it was to him. He’s one of my all-time favorites. His body of work speaks for itself. Yeah. If I had the opportunity to get in the ring with Edge, I wouldn’t pass that up for anything. I would love the chance.”
Edge, during his first appearance inside an NXT ring after winning the Royal Rumble, revealed that it was actually the NXT brand that motivated him to pursue a return to the squared circle. With Adam Cole one of the biggest names in the black and gold brand’s history, he is undoubtedly somebody Edge would like to face at some point in time.
