Adam Cole on old NXT: “That roster was stacked”

Last updated

AEW star Adam Cole recently spoke to the #Dork podcast. The former WWE NXT Superstar discussed several topics during the show, including why NXT was so successful from 2015 to 2019.

‘There’s so many factors to go into it. Number one, and I stand by this, that roster was stacked” Adam Cole would begin, discussing how well the ‘original’ NXT crew did.

“You had a lot of really talented dudes who were trying to make an impression and trying to show the world, on the biggest stage they have ever had, how good they were” Cole added.

“So I think that created a really exciting atmosphere. Second of all, the live audience that was there, I’ve said this before and I think it’s a big reason AEW is so successful, the people that buy a ticket to that show and show up, they want the show to be good” Cole continued.

“They go there with the intention of going, ’˜this show is going to rule. I can’t wait to watch these matches.’ It creates this exciting atmosphere that not only creates cool magic within the audience, but it does create a different feeling with the wrestlers as well, so that’s how the magic happens in a lot of ways” Cole concluded.
