• AEW Has Made An Offer To Adam Cole
Former NXT Champion Adam Cole’s WWE contract is set to expire after the SummerSlam 2021 weekend.
There were rumors that Cole’s contract will expire in 2024, but his contract actually expired after the Great American Bash last month, but he extended it till NXT TakeOver 36 (which will take place one night after SummerSlam).
According to the Wrestling Observer, Cole is currently in talks with WWE about a new contract, but AEW has offered him a contract as well:
“Those close to the situation have said that he is negotiating a new deal with NXT, but that AEW had made an offer as well and he had not agreed to either offer as of midweek.”
Cole signing with AEW can’t be ruled out, since his girlfriend, Britt Baker, works in All Elite Wrestling and is their Women’s Champion right now.
Below are his accomplishments in NXT:
– 1x NXT Champion (longest reign at 403 days)
– 1x NXT North American Champion (inaugural champion)
– 1x NXT Tag Team Champion (Undisputed Era)
– Second NXT Triple Crown Champion
– Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic 2018 Winner (with Kyle O’Reilly)
– 7x NXT Year-End Award Winner

• Old School Wrestling Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School Wrestling Veteran “The Boogie Woogie Man” Jimmy Valiant (Real name: James Fanning) celebrates his 79th birthday today.
After teaming with his kayfabe brother “Luscious Johnny V” Johnny Valiant during the 70s, Jimmy Valiant ended up becoming one of the greatest comedy characters in pro wrestling history, when he adapted the “Boogie Woogie Man” persona while wrestling on NWA TV (including several PPVs) for Jim Crockett Promotions.
In 1996, the Valiant Brothers got inducted into the WWF Hall of Fame (now WWE Hall of Fame) by “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith & “The King of Harts” Owen Hart.
They became the first Tag Team ever to be inducted into the WWF/E Hall of Fame!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOOGIE WOOGIE MAN!
