Adam Cole injury from AEW Forbidden Door ‘very serious’

Last updated

All Elite Wrestling star Adam Cole appeared to be in a lot of pain during the Forbidden Door PPV event this past weekend.

Cole was part of the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship match, and the ending seemed to come out of nowhere.

According to a recent report in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Cole suffered from a concussion during the match.

Dave Meltzer revealed that this was the reason for the rushed finish, where Jay White pinned the former NXT Champion out of nowhere.

“Cole, who has been wrestling with a torn labrum (shoulder), suffered what was believed to have been a very serious concussion” Meltzer revealed.

“[This] lead to a rushed and awkward finish of the IWGP title match as Jay White pinned him” Meltzer would conclude.

It is not known when Cole will be able to get back into the ring, but it will certainly be some time before we see him back.
