Adam Cole Comments On Potential Call-Up To WWE's Main Roster
Could Cole make the switch to Raw or SmackDown?
Adam Cole says he feels he still has plenty to accomplish in NXT amid reports of a potential call-up to WWE's main roster.
Cole was unsuccessful in his pursuit of regaining the NXT Championship on Sunday, losing in the Fatal 5 Way Match for the title, with reigning champion Karrion Kross retaining the belt.
The former Undisputed Era leader enjoyed the longest reign ever with the title, and is also a former North American champion and Tag Team champion on the brand. But, amid speculation he could switch to Raw or Smackdown, Cole believes NXT is still the best roster in WWE and he still has much to do on the black-and-gold show.
Speaking at NXT's global press conference on Saturday, Cole said: "Well first of all, Adam Cole isn't anxious about anything. In regards to RAW and SmackDown: Could Adam Cole show up on RAW or SmackDown? Maybe. Would Adam Cole run RAW or SmackDown if he showed up? You damn right he would.
"But I'm actually really tired of hearing this question over and over again. 'Adam you've accomplished so much, Adam do you want to move to RAW or SmackDown, you've done everything that you could possibly do in NXT'. No I haven't.
"Maybe to you I've done everything that I can do. Once again, being the longest reigning NXT Champion of all time, that sounds nice, right, and then just move on. I have an attachment to this brand.
"When I joined NXT in 2017, I watched this brand continue to grow and evolve into something that can't be touched because I stand by this. The NXT roster will beat the RAW roster and the SmackDown roster any day of the week and twice on Sunday. I'm very very proud to be a part of this brand but more importantly I feel like I do have more to accomplish."
