AEW isn’t taking any risks with one of their injured main-eventers.
Adam Cole hasn’t wrestled a match in AEW since Forbidden Door back on June 26th. He has appeared in a non-wrestling segment since then, but hasn’t actually been in a match.
This is because he has been dealing with the after-effects of a concussion suffered in a Four-Way Match at Forbidden Door.
It has been almost a full six months since Cole suffered that concussion there doesn’t appear to be any plan to include him in matches, segments, or storylines. And according to the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, this is for Cole’s own well-being.
A fan asked Meltzer on Twitter if he had heard anything about Adam Cole. And even though Meltzer isn’t necessarily in the wrestling business, he has been around it long enough for some people in it to divulge secrets and unconfirmed reports to him.
That’s what happened in this case, as Melzer was told that Cole’s return to being an active wrestler in AEW doesn’t have a set timeframe:
“He’s doing much better. The last I heard is they were being cautious. Don’t have any time frame for a return. With concussions, you can’t predict time frame.”
But despite Cole’s long absence, AEW President Tony Khan is being optimistic about both Cole’s concussion and also Adam Page’s.
