In an interview with Live Audio Wrestling, Former ROH Champion Adam Cole talked about his status in wrestling as a free agent:
ďItís really tough to say actually right now, what exactly I want,Ē he said. ďI will say this, since 2010 I have been contracted to Ring of Honor Wrestling so for the past seven years, Iíve been contracted to Ring of Honor and havenít even considered the idea of going anywhere else. So, for me, this is a situation where I have had and still am having the time of my life in Ring of Honor. So for me to just take a step back and look at the landscape and decide if I want to stick around, if I want to go elsewhere and making that decision.Ē
He continued, ďI think itís healthy for me, at 27 years old Iíve never gone out and seen whatís out there and checked out the possibility of seeing if Iím ready to move on or not or go somewhere else. I donít say move up, I say move on because I think so highly of Ring of Honor but for me, as far as making the actual decision, there are multiple factors. Is it something where I want to go and I feel like I need new challenges, I mean thatís definitely a possibility. Is it a matter of sticking with a company who Iíve been a mainstay guy with for years now and helping that company continue to move forward? Just, again, having the option to think about what I would like to do is so important to me right now but at the end of the day, what Iím going to do and the decision Iím going to make will come down to me being as happy as possible because I love pro wrestling, itís my life, I eat, sleep and breathe it and wherever I feel like Iíll be at my happiest and wherever I feel like it will be the most rewarding for me, that will be the decision that I end up making. Unfortunately, you canít make those decisions in a couple of days. Youíve got to think about it and process what would be best for you but Iím in a very cool, very lucky scenario right now where I have the option of exploring these different areas. At the end of the day, the decision that is made will be the one that makes me the happiest.
Cole said, ďIím absolutely going to take my time. I think a lot of the time when you make, I donít want to say rash decisions but when you make immediate decisions on what you would like to do, I feel like that can put you in a scenario where youíre second-guessing yourself. For me, I donít want to have anything that Iím second-guessing. I want to totally make sure, this is the decision I want to make, this is where I want to go, this is what I want to do. And for me, that does take some time because, again, a lot of people think this is just some easy, okay you just make your decision and you go, itís not. My entire life could potentially change so this is definitely something that I need to sit back and think about, talk to the people that Iím closest with and decide what is best for me, what is best for Adam Cole.Ē
