Former WWE Star Makes Shock AEW Debut On Dynamite
Adam Cole was one angry man on AEW Dynamite a week after being made to watch his girlfriend Britt Baker take a vicious beating but he found support from a familiar face.
Chris Jericho had handcuffed Cole to the ring ropes and handed Saraya of The Outcasts a Kendo stick, allowing the English star to mercilessly take apart Baker in front of Cole’s eyes.
In Sunrise, Florida, Adam Cole was on the hunt for revenge but rather than face him eye-to-eye, Chris Jericho delivered his message to Cole via the video screen. The rest of The Jericho Appreciation Society, however, had no such issues about staying away and swarmed Cole in the ring.
This brought out the unlikely duo of Orange Cassidy and Bandido who came to Cole’s aid but The JAS still had the numbers advantage. However, it wasn’t long before Adam Cole found the end of his heartache as Roderick Strong stunned everyone by making his AEW debut and reuniting with his Undisputed ERA partner.
