Adam Cole Addresses Scrapped Undisputed Elite Vs. The Elite Feud

Adam Cole on the nixed Undisputed Elite vs. The Elite programme in AEW

All Elite Wrestling had major plans for the second half of 2022 as Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly made their returns to the promotion in August and turned on The Young Bucks with Bobby Fish, seemingly to kick off a feud between The Undisputed Elite and The Elite. Kenny Omega returned from injury only a couple of weeks later but plans for a long feud were dead by that point as Adam Cole was still recovering from a serious concussion he suffered at June's Forbidden Door pay-per-view, while Kyle O'Reilly had to undergo neck fusion surgery.

Speaking with, Adam Cole addressed the planned Undisputed Elite vs. The Elite feud being scrapped. 

"I think so (those plans have been scrapped). It's one of those situations where, obviously, wrestling is dangerous and things change all the time there may have been a couple of ideas as far as where we were going months and months ago. We thought, 'Okay, this recovery process is going to be a little bit quicker.' But as time went on and we learned how serious this injury was, obviously things had to pivot and change as well. That's kind of the way wrestling is where things change often and you just kind of have to roll with the punches. We definitely had at least a couple of ideas back then but things have changed now. But it doesn't mean that we won't play into that down the line," Cole stated. 

Cole has since turned babyface and has only just returned to the ring, defeating Daniel Garcia on the March 29 edition of Dynamite. Kyle O'Reilly remains out of action and Bobby Fish is no longer under contract, having departed AEW at the end of August 2022.
