Report reveals injury update on AEW’s Adam Cole
AEW’s Adam Cole appeared on Dynamite despite struggling with injuries, and a new report from Fightful Select reveals he’s actually been dealing with multiple injuries for an extended period of time. According to the report, Cole has been suffering from a labrum injury since his AEW World Championship battle with Adam Hangman Page. He worked on it according to AEW sources, who also said the injury was a torn labrum, although this has not been confirmed.
Cole’s last match was at AEW’s Double or Nothing against Samoa Joe, whom he defeated to win the Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament. It remains to be seen if he will have to step away from in-ring competition because of the injury at some point, but so far he doesn’t seem to be taking any time. We wish Adam all the best and hope for a speedy recovery.
Cole and Dr. Britt Baker would eventually win both the men’s and women’s Owen Hart Foundation tournaments, and Baker has been carrying her impressive new title ever since. Tonight, she had the title on her shoulder as she took a shot at Toni Storm, who she’s having trouble jumping the challenger line with at the AEW Women’s World Championship. Storm held the title in her hands after helping Thunder Rosa on Dynamite, and Baker didn’t like that too much.
As for Cole, it remains to be seen what’s next for the star when it comes to challengers and upcoming feuds. At the moment it could end up in a number of programs, although there’s no clear favorite that stands out from the rest, so we’ll have to wait and see how things pan out.
