Adam Cole Previews His Title Match Against Tommaso Ciampa
Shortly before NXT TakeOver: Portland, NXT Champion Adam Cole sent a final message to his opponent, Tommaso Ciampa. “I don’t think people realize what’s at stake here,” said Cole. “Adam Cole versus Tommaso Ciampa is so much more than another TakeOver main event, than another Adam Cole title defense. No, this is about legacy. This is about the history, the importance of the NXT championship and what it means to its competitors. I’ve said countless times that Tommaso Ciampa is a man that never ‘truly lost’ the NXT Championship, he feels like the NXT Championship is his right, he deserves it. But the fact is Adam Cole is in the middle of the run of a lifetime, and me saying I’m the greatest NXT Champion there has ever been, tonight I prove it.”
