Adam Cole missed a lot of time in 2022 while recovering from a concussion. It’s believed the injury was suffered at the Forbidden Door pay-per-view event. Cole took part in a four-way match that also included Jay White, Hangman Page, and Kazuchika Okada.
While speaking with Wrestling Observer Radio, Cole admitted that he spoke to Bryan Danielson during his recovery. Danielson has a history of concussion issues, but has been able to work through them and compete in the ring.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
His conversations with Danielson: “I did. I briefly talked to him, and he obviously has a ton of information regarding that entire process. He was very helpful, very giving with information, just wanted to make sure that I was doing some of the right things to get back and feel healthy. He was great.”
Danielson still wrestling after suffering concussions: “That was incredibly motivating. I know me and Bryan’s situations were, obviously there’s some similarities, but they were also very different, all at the same time. But it was motivating to me to think, ‘Okay, he was told, “You are not gonna step into a ring again. It’s just not gonna happen.” Then Bryan did everything he possibly could to get to a point where now a bunch of doctors are saying, ‘Yeah, you’re good to go. You’re ready to go.’ He’s proven that now, week after week, just having absolutely incredible matches. So yeah, Bryan was very helpful.”
