Adam Cole is the longest-reigning NXT Champion in history. On top of that, he has won over the hearts and minds of those in charge of the black and gold brand.
Appearing on the WWE After The Bell Podcast, NXT Producer, Brian “Road Dogg” James had nothing but praise for the leader of the Undisputed ERA, admitting that, if anything, the only thing working against Adam Cole is his stature.
“Adam Cole is the most professional, most talented [Superstar]. He gets it,” Road Dogg began. “He gets every aspect of it. But he’s also a great worker. He has a great psychology. Man, if he was Karrion Kross’ size, he would be the Universal Champion right now and if he wasn’t, I’d be wondering what that’s the kind of guy he is. That’s the kind of human he is. That’s the kind of talent he is. Incredible. So he’s probably my favorite guy. But from a guy who is now on the side of the fence having to work with that guy, he gives you everything you could ask for and more and you don’t even really have to ask for it. Do you know what I mean? It’s just like a dream. You know, it’s a dream. Dream superstar.”
Adam Cole will face Velveteen Dream for the NXT Championship at TakeOver: In Your House this coming Sunday, June 7th.
