• People In AEW Are Concerned About Adam Cole’s Health
At the AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door pay-per-view, Jay White defeated Adam Cole, Hangman Page & Kazuchika Okada in a Fatal 4-Way Match to retain the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship.
The match ended abruptly when White pinned Cole out of nowhere to win the match.
Cole, who entered the match with a shoulder injury, suffered a concussion in this match, so they quickly ended the match.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Cole suffered two concussions within a month because he came back quickly:
“One of the things in his case was he had gotten a concussion, and then he came back and immediately got another concussion, so the feeling was, ‘Well, let’s give him plenty of time this time so that when he comes back he doesn’t immediately get another concussion’.
He came back, he was immediately hurt again, and the feeling was he clearly came back too early so after it happened a second time, it was like, ‘He’s gonna be out until he’s like 100%, and it could be a while’.
A number of people have brought up being very concerned for him.”
