Adam Cole Speaks on Pressure as NXT Champion, Tomasso Ciampa


Adam Cole spoke about the pressure of being NXT Champion with the show premiering on USA while doing an interview with Sports Illustrated. Here are the highlights: 

Pressure he puts himself as champion: “I am the NXT champion representing a brand I think so proudly of, so I’m putting a lot of pressure on myself like I always do. That pressure comes from living up to the expectation that NXT has built. NXT was put on the USA Network because of the work that the NXT brand put in. If the show wasn’t good, we wouldn’t be on USA. Our focus is, week after week, putting on the best show possible. We’re focused on exceeding the expectations our current fans have for us and the expectations that our soon-to-be fans will have.”

Tommaso Ciampa: “I understand where Tommaso is coming from because the NXT Championship is incredibly important to him. Tommaso had a great run in NXT. He’s a great professional wrestler. But as far as him getting Goldie back, that isn’t happening and I’ll be sure to remind him of that any time he gets in my face.”
