According to the Wrestling Observer, Vince McMahon had a meeting with Adam Cole about a new contract.
Cole was reportedly offered a $1 million per year contract and he agreed to re-sign with WWE.
Vince has told WWE writers to begin storylines for Cole on the main roster, as he’ll be done with NXT after NXT TakeOver 36 (which will take place one night after SummerSlam 2021).
Former WWE wrestler Karl Anderson (who’s currently the Tag Team Champion in Impact Wrestling along with Doc Gallows) tweeted the following while reacting to a Twitter account writing about Cole’s new WWE contract:
“..@The_BigLG asked for a no cut clause. I said “sh*t we don’t need it”
