AEW star Adam Cole was recently interviewed by Fightful as he spoke about ROH being in “good hands” with Tony Khan at the helm, among other topics that were also discussed below:
On his reaction to Tony Khan buying ROH: “I was elated as well. Mainly because Ring of Honor was not only so important and influential to me, but again so many professional wrestlers you see today came through Ring of Honor. Ring of Honor was involved in, for a lot of people, exposing them to places like New Japan Pro Wrestling, people who’d only watched wrestling in the United States were able to access all these different pro wrestling. It seriously, with the way ROH went, changed the modern style of professional wrestling in a lot of ways. But the reason I was so happy is, aside from the fact now I know Ring of Honor is not going away, is Tony Khan loves the history of pro wrestling and respects the history of pro wrestling. So I know that Ring of Honor in Tony Khan’s hands is a good place to be.”
On AEW acknowledging wrestling history and catering to hardcore fans: “It doesn’t matter what company or where it was or when it was. Again, as you said, AEW will acknowledge that history. Pro wrestling fans are passionate about pro wrestling. I liked that as a fan when you would acknowledge history and I know our fans do too.”
