Britt Baker comments on Adam Cole possibly jumping ship to AEW. The former NXT Champion will reportedly become a free agent after SummerSlam this month.
Former NXT Champion Adam Cole will soon become a free agent. According to a report from Wrestling Inc. his contract with WWE NXT will expire following SummerSlam weekend in just a few weeks. Naturally, this has led to fans speculating a move to AEW.
AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker recently spoke with Matty Paddock of the UK Daily Star before the news broke. They discussed if a potential move from NXT to AEW was in the pipeline for her partner sometime in the future.

Baker replied by saying that a mulitude of endless storylines awaited him. However, even if he chose to remain with the WWE she would still be happy as long as Cole was happy himself.
“He has got to hold down the Tuesday night and I’ll hold down the Wednesday night, right?! I think it’s funny when people say, ‘he has to go to AEW because of Britt!’ because there are so many more people at AEW who have played a bigger role in the wrestling side of his life.
“People like The Young Bucks, Kenny; he was in the Bullet Club for the majority of the Indie career people know him for. He has such a history in AEW that, if he came here, the storylines are endless – but he’s happy where he is. So, if he were to jump ship and come my way, that would be awesome, but if he stays in WWE forever then I’d be happy, too, as I just want him to be happy.
“I don’t miss anything of his and he doesn’t miss anything of mine. We’re just so supportive of each other. It doesn’t matter where he works, where I work or where either of us end up, we just want success for one another.”
