Adam Cole would love the chance to lock up with one of his own all-time favourite wrestlers, Edge, in WWE in the future.
Edge's shock return to in-ring action last year has sprung up the exciting potential for matches previously unseen, and The Rated-R Superstar has previously spoken of his desire to work with some of the talent in NXT.
Such opportunities presented themselves when Edge teased challenging for the NXT Championship at WrestleMania 37, after winning the 2021 Royal Rumble, and Cole would relish the chance to work with the former WWE Champion.
When asked about the prospect of stepping into the ring with Edge, Cole told FOX Sports: "[I want that match] so, so, so, so badly. Now I feel bad for not mentioning Edge as one of my top heels as well. 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 favourites. 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."
