In an interview with TV Insider, Adam Cole talks about how the Undisputed Era would fair competing on the main roster (i.e. RAW or SmackDown). The former NXT World Champion seems to be in no rush for the group to make their debut on the main roster anytime soon.
“I feel like NXT is really blossoming into something special,” Cole said. “Selfishly, I don’t want to miss out on that. I’m really enjoying my time here and feel there is more for me to do. I feel like there is more for the Undisputed Era to do. As a group, we have been a dominant force in NXT. I’m in no rush to leave NXT. At the same time, do I think the Undisputed Era would be effective on RAW and SmackDown? Absolutely.”
Adam Cole also commented on his feud with Pat McAfee and their upcoming match at NXT TakeOver XXX:
“[My feud with him] goes so much deeper than that altercation we had. It’s his whole demeanor and attitude in general. From the first day he walked into NXT and started doing stuff on the kickoff shows and all of that, he acts like he owns the place. Immediately,” Cole emphasized. “That’s what bothered me and others. He seemed incredibly comfortable for someone who was a guest. That offended me, and I think other people as well.”
His thoughts on being compared to “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels:
“Our entire generation can share this opinion that Shawn Michaels is the greatest pro wrestler of all-time to ever do it. He is the absolute best. So any time people make these comparisons, it’s incredibly humbling. Now more than anything, I’m focused on being the first Adam Cole and not the second Shawn Michaels. It motivates me even more to be the best version of myself. But you can’t ask for a better compliment,” said the longest reigning NXT champion in history.”
