Adam Cole has lifted the lid on the most difficult period of his career.
Cole is currently out of action after breaking his ankle at AEW Grand Slam back in September. The star was due to come to the rescue of MJF when he was defending the World Championship against Samoa Joe.
While running to the ring, Cole jumped from the raised ramp to ringside and seemed to land awkwardly and was hobbling as he completed his planned spots. The star has since undergone two surgeries, including having a steel plate and eight screws put into his ankle.
Despite the injury, Cole has remained on TV, appearing on skits with Roderick Strong and The Kingdom, while he and MJF haven’t been stripped of the ROH World Tag Team Titles.
Posting on social media, Cole addressed his injury and thanked fans for their support.
Emotionally, this has been the most challenging injury of my career. Without question. Thank you to EVERYONE who has reached out & shown support. Means more than you know. I will do everything in my power to get back to work doing what I love to do. Because I’m #AdamColeBayBay
Adam Cole’s AEW Career Hit By Injury
Adam Cole signed with AEW in September 2021 and was regularly featured from the off. The star reunited with The Elite and clashed with the likes of Hangman Adam Page while bidding to become World Champion.
However, the star suffered two concussions in quick succession in late May and early June 2022 and didn’t return to the ring until early 2023. During this period there were very real fears that he’d never wrestle again.
