Former WWE NXT Superstar Adam Cole made his long-awaited debut in All Elite Wrestling this past weekend at the AEW All Out PPV event.

Adam Cole appeared following the main event between Kenny Omega and Christian Cage, re-aligning himself with The Elite going forward.

According to a recent report from Fightful Select, many within WWE had expected Cole to sign with the company as early as last weekend.

“Nobody we spoke to within WWE was outright told by Cole that he’d be appearing at All Out, and he was hidden the night of the show. 

We’re told the deal with AEW wasn’t ‘official’ until Sunday, but that those who needed to know were informed well ahead of time, as merchandise and other aspects of the debut had to be prepared. The finish of the show was discussed among talent involved late in the evening, after the CM Punk match.”
