Adam Cole Discusses His Approach When Being Cheered As A Heel In AEW


Although Adam Cole is portrayed as a heel in AEW, the fans have been cheering him despite it. 

Cole was on a recent episode of the AEW Unrestricted podcast with Aubrey Edwards and Tony Schiavone. During the podcast, Cole talked about dealing with the crowd reactions. 

“It has been a thing that I’ve gone through for a few years, and I take it as a giant compliment,” Cole said. “My match with Jungle Boy is a prime example. So, in the beginning, they’re excited for the entrance. They want to do the ‘boom’, and they want to do ‘Adam Cole bay bay’ and they’re into me at the start of the match, but my theory and my thought process is, if I have enough time, I’ll get them to change their mind.

“The moment with the Jungle Boy match where me and you, Aubrey, we had our moments, and then Jungle Boy ends up locking me in the submission. Everyone in that arena wanted Jungle Boy to win. That’s when I was so happy. I was like, okay, we got them. Now, we’re good. So if they choose to cheer me in the beginning, I’m okay with that. I don’t have that inner battle of like, oh, I’m not doing my job because my job starts to get done as the match progresses, and as I start doing more hellish, dastardly evil things to where as long as I get them by the end, then I’m happy with that. That’s kind of my thought process on it.”
