In an interview with GameSpot’s Wrestle Buddies podcast, All Elite Wrestling superstar Adam Cole addressed his recovery process and noted that he is confident that he will be able to return to the ring soon after suffering a concussion during the AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door pay-per-view last month, while he had also been dealing with a torn labrum.
“I’m doing okay, I’m definitely on the path, on the track to recovery for sure. I have a great team around me that is helping and just making sure that I am taken care of to the best of my ability. AEW has been fantastic as far as making sure that I am getting the right care that I deserve and I feel like I’ve progressed and moved forward every single week for sure because I had been, I was pretty banged up.
For 14 years, being in the pro wrestling industry, I think the most time I had ever had off ever, as far as travelling, being on the road was one month, I’ve been going, going, going non-stop, eventually our bodies kind of catch up to us and I had a couple of things that were kind of lingering for me, and then, with what happened at Forbidden Door, but I feel good, I’m very confident that I will be back in the ring soon, I am excited to be back, I miss it so much already, but yeah, I am feeling good.
Injuries like that can be a little bit scary I think, not just for me, but kind of for everybody, but like I said, fortunately, the most important thing in a situation like that is having a good team of people who know what they’re doing and are concerned about your well-being around you and that was definitely the case for me, so yeah, I’m getting the proper care that I need and I’ll be good to go in no time, it was definitely scary for me too.”
