• “I cried like a baby after that match” – Adam Cole
During an appearance on The Kurt Angle Show, AEW wrestler Adam Cole talked about his final match in WWE NXT, where he lost to Kyle O’Reilly at NXT TakeOver 36 in August 2021.
Cole revealed that this match made him cry. Below is what he said:
“I’m an emotional guy, and I don’t think I’ve ever said this, but I cried like a baby after that match.
I’m sitting there, I’m watching this video package before the match, and its pictures of me and Kyle from 2009, and all this Ring of Honor stuff, and us wrestling each other in New Japan, and I know this is my last night at NXT… I was crying before I went out there.
Getting to do that with him, there’s no one I would’ve rather wrestled or been in there with than Kyle.
Just because I got to close my Ring of Honor chapter with him in a lot of ways, I got to close my PWG chapter and then my ‘NXT’ chapter with Kyle.
So it was a very special night and a very emotional night for me.”
