Hall Of Famer WWE Booker T talked about Adam Cole's problems in AEW due to his physique from his recent injuries. After Adam Cole emerged victorious in the final of Owen Hart's memorial tournament at AEW Double or Nothing, he has since been reported to have been injured.
Despite the news, however, Cole continued to appear at Dynamite to try and secure a match for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at AEW X NJPW: Forbidden Door. While Cole believes himself to be the best on Tony Khan's roster, the WWE commentator thinks he still lacks something to be one of the best in AEW.
Booker T on Adam Cole
Booker T recently spoke quite harshly on the "Reality of Wrestling" podcast about Adam Cole's injuries: “If Adam Cole has to undergo surgery and stays out for six or nine months it would be a catastrophe.
You know if maybe he loses more weight, it will be hard for him to go on. You know what I mean? Already now, he is very skinny let alone if he were to lose weight again. He should really increase it. We need to give more weight to Adam Cole.
This is the big problem with him, he is too light, let's say. We should put some extra muscle on this guy. This is probably one of the reasons he goes out there and gets hurt. I think he can't always be on the AEW main program every week." The criticism of Adam Cole's physique, defined by various enthusiasts as the subject of discussion even in the past, continues because of his being so thin to compete at certain levels.
Some also pointed out that since his arrival in AEW, Adam Cole would lose far more weight than he did when he was in WWE. Adam Cole is currently in the running to face Jay White for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at Forbidden Door but he also has another threat named Hangman Adam Page to keep an eye out for.
AEW has yet to decide who will eventually challenge Jay White for the title. Adam Cole debuted at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III, attacking NXT Champion Drew McIntyre along with Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly. The three men would become known as the Undisputed Era.
They immediately caused chaos for the black and gold brand. All nine men battled inside the two-ring steel cage. This was a different version of WarGames with no roof, but it still had the intensity of WarGames of the past. Killian Dain stood out and put in a tremendous effort.
Authors of Pain and Roderick Strong showed heart, while the rest of Sanity brought a level of mayhem unlike anyone else in the match.
