There were recent reports that WWE had “pitched” the idea on bringing Adam Cole up to the main roster, and making him Keith Lee’s Manager, had he re-resigned with WWE.
Cole recently spoke with TVInsider. During the interview, Cole indicated that he had never heard of such plans.
“I personally have never heard anything regarding that. I touched base a little bit on how my meeting with Vince McMahon went really well…We talked for about 30 minutes. He had a lot of complimentary things to say…As far as hearing that specific thing, that was not something I heard about. My four years with NXT were fantastic. My four years with WWE were awesome, but at the end of the day, I wanted to end up with AEW. Now that I’m here, I’m stoked.”
