Adam Cole, who had been riding high as one-half of the ROH Tag Team Champions and was deeply involved in a main event storyline with MJF, had to abruptly halt his participation due to his injury.

The Severity of the Injury

During a recent Twitch stream, Adam Cole shared some disheartening news. Doctors have informed him that he will need two surgeries on his injured ankle.

The process will involve the insertion of four plates and four screws. Cole described this injury as the most excruciating he has ever experienced. Yet, he remains optimistic about making a triumphant return to the ring.

It’s worth noting that Adam Cole hasn’t undergone surgery yet. This delay is a cause for concern, as every week he remains out of action means AEW is without one of its top stars.

The hope is that once the surgeries are completed, Cole can embark on his recovery journey.
