Adam Cole made his AEW return earlier this month after being sidelined since the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view event last year. Cole had suffered a severe concussion at the crossover event leading to his absence from AEW programming.
While speaking to Nick Testoni of 98 Rock in Baltimore, AEW President Tony Khan discussed Cole’s return and weighed in on how critical AEW treats its concussion protocol. He said,
“It’s a very important concern. When Adam Cole was injured, we absolutely wanted to take as much time and evaluate what we could do for him, how we could treat him, and do whatever we could to put his health first before we even considered any possibility that he was going to return to the ring. It’s only now that he’s made this kind of progress in his brain therapy and his recovery to where we believe Adam Cole is ready to return to the ring.”
“I’m very excited about that and it’s great to have him come back to AEW Dynamite and we’re so excited about more Adam Cole in AEW going forward.”
AEW is yet to announce the date for Cole’s in-ring return.
