The January 11 episode of AEW Dynamite was stacked to say the least. Fans were treated to incredible in-ring action including Hangman Page Vs Jon Moxley and the closing act of The Elite and Death Triangle’s best of seven series over the AEW World Tag Team Championships.

Though, one thing fans were not expecting was the return of Adam Cole. When his ‘All About That Boom’ theme song hit, the crowd went crazy and jumped to their feet to welcome Panama City Playboy back to AEW. He spoke from the heart and reflected on his serious medical journey which kept him away from the company for over six months.

AEW Owner Tony Khan has also expressed his joy over having Cole healthy and back in his company. In a recent appearance on the In The Kliq podcast, Khan has labelled Cole’s return as a ‘dream come true’ and emphasised just how exciting it is for the star to be close to an in-ring return.

“Well, I don’t think he ever [ruled out returning to the ring]. Certainly, it was a very challenging recovery, and they were points where, I’m sure, he had to question if he was going to make it back or, you know, what he was putting himself through because, like he said, he didn’t leave the house to do anything but brain therapy. He wanted it so bad. He wants so bad to come back to AEW, to get back in the ring and wrestle for the fans on Wednesdays on TBS, and Fridays on TNT. That’s his dream. For us, it’s a dream come true having Adam Cole be a part of the AEW roster. It’s very exciting that he’s getting closer and closer to making a comeback. It’s a really inspirational story, and people don’t even know the half of it yet. I’m excited for people to find out more about what Adam Cole has been through.”

-Tony Khan.

Cole’s last match was at the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door special. Despite being out of the ring for so long, Cole outlined his intentions to one day be top of the mountain in AEW.
