ROH TV Champion Adam Cole recently spoke about winning the title, a possible run with WWE or TNA and more. Here are the highlights…
On his accomplishments so far: "To me it's all just happening to fast. I just remember when I was 9 years old and I first watched pro wrestling and thinking, it would be so cool to get involved in...now that I'm actually doing it I'm still that kid at heart...I did always have that mindset though of wanting to work super hard to make sure that I took myself and my career as far as I possibly could, but I certainly did not expect for things to move as fast as they are..."
On whether WWE or TNA is a natural progression for him: "I think it's a possibility, There's also a thing where I try not to set specific goals for myself...That might sound crazy, but what I mean by that is if I focused solely on where I wanted to end up or what championship I wanted to win or who I wanted to work with, I feel like I'd drive myself crazy because wrestling is just so unpredictable. So instead of focusing on that, I focus on making sure each and every day I become a better performer and wrestler and I do everything that I can to get these opportunities so that way if I don't at least I can look myself in the mirror and say that I've done all that I can...If that means that someday I would end up in WWE then that would be fantastic because I think anyone that says that they don't want to have a WrestleMania moment someday is kidding themselves."
On winning the ROH TV Title: "Obviously I was very excited at the opportunity and extremely nervous because I knew how important this was to me and anytime a company, especially like Ring Of Honor, decides that they want to put stock into you and that they want you to be one the guys they can put on a marquee and hope draws money is a huge honor, no pun intended...Getting a chance to win the TV Title, that's gotta be the highlight of my wrestling career thus far".
