Wrestling fans anticipate an exhilarating clash between Adam Cole and Chris Jericho at the upcoming event, an unsanctioned bout that marks their first-ever confrontation inside the squared circle. Adding an extra layer of excitement to the mix, Cole has countered the presence of the Jericho Assisted Squad (J.A.S.) in his adversary's corner by roping in Sabu, the wrestling legend known as the 'Suicidal, Homicidal, Genocidal Maniac.'
In a recent candid chat on the Rasslin podcast, Cole shared his longtime admiration for Sabu. As a youngster engrossed in Extreme Championship Wrestling (E.C.W.), Sabu was Cole's absolute favorite. He even marveled at the intriguing concept of the respect he's earned from his childhood hero.
"Seeing Sabu's influence and journey in wrestling, it's fascinating to think that I, once just a fan, have garnered enough respect from him to earn his assistance against the J.A.S.," Cole reflected with palpable excitement in his voice, "I mean, it's a pretty damn cool feeling."
