NXT Champion Adam Cole gets to work
Now that he’s done flaunting his NXT Title and pouring salt in the wounds of Johnny Gargano on the transatlantic Bay Bay Championship Celebration Tour, Adam Cole is ready to get back to business with his first title defense on NXT TV.
The Undisputed ERA leader’s opponent is not yet known, but whoever receives the golden opportunity had better bring his A-game. Say what you want about The Panama City Playboy — his tactics are often underhanded, and his ego can’t be stroked enough — but given his willingness to put the title on the line mere days after defending it against Akira Tozawa at EVOLVE’s 10-year anniversary event, you can’t call him anything less than a fighting champion.
The elephant in the room, of course, will be Gargano. If Gargano’s involvement in Cole vs. Tozawa was any indication, it’s safe to assume that Johnny Wrestling will be keeping a close eye on the festivities inside Full Sail Live.
