ROH World Champion Adam Cole spoke with the USA Today about his future and whether or not he intends to sign with WWE when his contract with Ring of Honor expires in April.
"It's the same thing that has been the case throughout the process and throughout the journey when I've been asked, what are you going to do? I've been asked more since winning the title at Wrestle Kingdom and becoming Ring of Honor champion for the third time. There are a lot of possibilities. I don't know what I'm going to do.
"My focus is on having as good a run as possible with this title and my focus is on going over to New Japan Pro Wrestling. There are so many things that can change over the course of four months. I haven't really thought about it too much. There's still a decent amount of time for me to make my decision."
Cole went over Kyle O’Reilly to win the ROH World Championship at Wrestle Kingdom 11 last week. O’Reilly is rumored to be headed to WWE and NJPW/ROH megastar Kenny Omega is rumored to follow. Omega tweeted he was stepping away from New Japan Pro Wrestling and then John Cena posted photos of Omega on social media. Cole isn’t sure what it all means.
"I'm not too sure what it means. It could mean anything. Here's what I know: Kenny Omega is really smart and really talented and he's taking advantage of the opportunities available to him as would anyone else. He's created a lot of cool buzz. As far as what it means for his future, that's something only Kenny Omega knows, and that's the truth."
