Adam Cole Quotes

I think most importantly the reason we’ve been on the upswing is Ring of Honor has been very smart about the speed of its growth. ROH is not a company that says ok we’re going to throw all this money in and let’s just go for it. ROH has the business approach of slow but steady.

I’m very aware that pro wrestling fans can be some of the most vocal and passionate and descriptive about how they feel when it comes to pro wrestling. So I’m totally fine with how fans talk about how they feel, cause if they’re not allowed to voice how they feel, then what’s the point of being a wrestling fan. You gotta know what you like and what you do’t like and that’s fine.

They are definitely pros and cons to triple threat matches. The cons to them is obviously coming up wth something very original and making sure everything makes sense.
-Adam Cole

 

However, the positive, and I mean this, Jay Lethal and Kyle O’Reilly are two of my favorite opponents. I couldn’t ask for two guys I’d rather be in a triple threat match with. On top of that, creatively, if we are able to make something that’s really exciting for the fans, any time there are more bodies in the ring, you can always create something that’s different because there’s more than two people in the ring.
-Adam Cole

 

So if everything goes off great, then it being a triple threat match will make it even more exciting instead of a singles match.

I don’t necessarily notice too much of a change in the sense of the kind of matches that I have in say a Los Angeles as opposed to a New York City. The big difference that I notice, and this is what all love as New York city and Philadelphia has treated me fantastically, but man, you cannot screw up in Philadelphia and New York.
-Adam Cole

 

I’ve known Kyle O’Reilly since 2009. Me and him actually met each other when we had our very first match against each other for Gabe Sapolsyky’s DragonGate USA show. Me and Kyle went in there and we had a match that kind of made waves throughout the independent scene as far as us getting our names out there. We both got signed to Ring of Honor at the exact same time.
-Adam Cole

 

The cool thing is, when we first did our joint Ring Of Honour-New Japanies Wrestlers, I think that definitely existed. I think the ROH guys were like, “we can’t let these New Japan guys outshine us” the new japan guys were ready to make a statement as it was this really big event in America. But the cool thing about this relationship is we’ve literally become a family now. A lot of us are friends with each. We obviously respect each other.
-Adam Cole

My all-time favorite match that I’ve ever had was against Kyle O’Reilly in 2012, the ‘hybrid fighting rules match’ where we were bleeding buckets all over the place. And it was really a match that took my career to the next level.
-Adam Cole

 

I’ve wrestled Kyle O’Reilly all over the world. I know how good he is, our fans know how good he is. A lot of people feel he is the next guy in line to be world champion.

-Adam Cole

 

The ROH guys looking at the New Japan guys coming over, we’re just psyched. We think, “oh great this is just going to make our show even better.” The respect level with New Japan and ROH is at an all-time high. And anytime we get a company like New Japan Pro Wrestling on a ROH show, it just benefits our show. It has everybody all jacked up, ready to do the best we can like we always do.
-Adam Cole

I think too, Jay Lethal being apart of Ring of Honor and being in that role where he’s one of the guys who has the company on his back, he’s taking that very seriously, and you can see it n his work. So it’s been really cool to see.
-Adam Cole

There’s a big difference between trolling and just attacking guys to attack guys, to get under people’s skin, and to genuinely express how you felt about something. Like if I go to a movie for example, and I watch a movie, and I wasn’t a fan of it. I don’t mind turning to my family or some buddies I’m with and saying “oh man, I really didn’t like that movie.” But I’ve never acted or directed in my life. But I’m able to voice my opinion about whether or not I enjoyed it or not.
-Adam Cole

Being put in this situation, where it’s myself, Kyle O’Reilly and a Jay Lethal, I think it’s the best main event you can have right now in Ring of Honor.
-Adam Cole

 

Jay Lethal doing that Black Machsimo character, as good as that was, it was fantastic and so entertaining. But now Jay Lethal has turned himself into this very formidable, dominant world champion, who is having some of the best matches in the entire world. So it’s really cool.
-Adam Cole

-Adam Cole

The yen did gain on the inflation numbers initially. It then took out some key levels and we saw a massive bout of short-covering in dollar/yen.
-Adam Cole

 

This left orders in the fourth quarter up an impressive 4.1% quarter-on-quarter and points to strong capital spending in the early months of 2006, which will likely make the Bank of Japan that much more confident that the time is approaching to start removing its ultra-easy monetary policy.
-Adam Cole

It’s almost exclusively the rate outlook driving things in the sense that at the beginning of this week the market was 50/50 priced for a third rate hike this year with two priced in with certainty, but as things stand now even a second hike is looking questionable.
