Ring Of Honor wrestler Adam Cole recently spoke with Brian Fritz of SportingNews.com about when he found out he would be joining the Bullet Club, “shades of gray” in the pro wrestling business and more. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On when he found out he would be joining the Bullet Club:
“I found out about a month, month and a half before this whole thing was set up and to say the least I was pretty stoked. On top of it really changing my position I think in ROH because of the Bullet Club’s impact. Obviously, this really opens up some doors for me in New Japan. Anyone who has listened to me do interviews before knows how much being a part of New Japan Pro Wrestling is something that I’d really, really like to do.”
On there being ‘shades of gray’ in pro wrestling:
“I’m glad you brought that up because, definitely, you can see across the board, not just even in Ring of Honor or New Japan but also in the WWE. A lot more now there’s a focus on that shades of gray, guys becoming stars and becoming as popular as they can whether they’re being cheered or whether they’re being booed and almost letting the fans make the decision of who they like and who they want to cheer for and who they want to support. A perfect example is if myself and Jay Lethal wrestle for the ROH World Title. I can almost guarantee you that the crowd is going to be split 50-50. There’s a lot of those moments in Ring of Honor now. Same with Jay Lethal and Jay Briscoe, same with myself and Kyle O’Reilly.”
