There have been multiple speculations regarding the future of NXT star Adam Cole in WWE. Amid the turmoil which has been caused recently, he has reportedly turned down several new contract offers from the company. It is being speculated that his current deal is set to expire this month.
Adam Cole still has not inked a new deal
It has been heavily reported that Cole’s current WWE deal is due to expire the weekend of SummerSlam 2021 and therefore his final appearance for the company will be at NXT TakeOver 36, where he is likely to face his former Undisputed Era stablemate, Kyle O’ Reilly.
Adam Cole’s recent contract dispute has been a huge topic. It was initially thought that the contract of former NXT Champion would expire in early 2022 but it turned out that that Cole’s deal expired following NXT The Great American Bash last month. He had ended up agreeing to a short-term extension and never renewed the contract.
Amid this, Canyon Ceman, Senior Director of Talent Development of WWE was reportedly at fault and found himself released in the process. Now, more details about Cole’s future have now seemingly come to light.
As per the reports of PWUnlimited, Cole has already turned down multiple new contract offers from WWE. It is not known what was included in those offers but apparently, the deals which were put on the table were not something that would lure Cole to stay with Vince McMahon’s company.
Departure of Adam Cole will be a major loss for WWE
It is just three weeks to go until his WWE deal expires and as per the latest indications, Cole could be parting ways with WWE at the end of his contract. If Cole does not pen down a fresh deal with WWE and lets his contract expire there will not be a no-compete clause, which means he would be free to appear for another company as soon as he would want.
Cole has been in the top-tier of the gold and black brand. He was able to achieve a lot on the brand and led The Undisputed Era to become one of the dominant stables in the history of WWE. He has been heavily featured in the main-event picture of the brand and WWE should immediately strike a new deal with the star but as of now, his future in WWE remains in the air.
