As has been expected for quite some time, former three-time Ring of Honor champion Adam Cole has signed with WWE.
WWE has been interested in the 28-year-old star for quite some time. However, he decided to wait so he could continue working for Ring of Honor along with more opportunities in Japan. Over the past year, he wrestled in New Japan Pro Wrestling as a member of the “Bullet Club” and also defeated Kyle O’Reilly at “Wrestle Kingdom 11” this past January to win the ROH Championship.
Cole is expected to report to the company’s Performance Center in Orlando, Fla. later this week and debut with NXT in the near future. That could be as early as this Saturday at the “TakeOver: Brooklyn III” event at the Barclays Center on the night before “SummerSlam.”
