WWE NXT Superstar, Adam Cole recently spoke with State of Combat where he discussed the WWE NXT brand and its future. Below are some highlights with a H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions.
On what sets NXT apart:
“There’s this really cool, untapped thing with what is happening and that is the relationship between the wrestlers and the fans in that building,” revealed Cole. “I think one of the coolest things in the world is that when we are able to go to these TakeOver events wherever they are in the country, or with TakeOver UK with the TakeOvers over there too. These fans, and I know it sounds cliché, but it is true, these fans are the most passionate wrestling fans on the planet and that is not something that is just said, you can feel it in the building.”
On where the brand will be in 5-10 years:
“The sky is the limit. Like I briefly mentioned earlier, it has been almost two years for me that I have joined the NXT roster, and even the growth from then has been unbelievable,” stated Cole. “This brand, and I am going to call it a brand, continues to grow and grow and we are getting more and more people checking out NXT TV and the NXT pay-per-view events. I really believe there is a special thing that is specifically happening to the NXT brand, and the more people that watch and lay their eyes on it, they walk away going I am going to continue to watch and support that because I love that.”
