NXT Star Adam Cole recently appeared on WWE's After The Bell with Corey Graves, where he talked about what he feels when he works an NXT TakeOver such as Halloween Havoc, In Your House and Great American Bash, which are names of past WCW PPV Events.
Adam Cole said:
“Stuff happens so fast that sometimes you forget to sit back and smell the roses.” “One of the things I’ve tried to do as I’ve gotten older is to appreciate things in the moment. Stuff like Halloween Havoc and In Your House and Great American Bash, to be able to say, yeah I get to perform on events like this or to be in feature matches on these cards is so so cool. At the end of the day we all love pro wrestling and to be able to do this stuff is awesome. Early on, it was so laser focused on the next thing and not appreciating what’s happening. I understand that the motivation process is constantly more more and more but the older I get, it’s been a lot happier and healthier for me to be like, hey, this is fricken cool.”
Adam Cole then talked about wanting to compete in a Hell in a Cell Match down the line, most probably against WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels or Kyle O'Reilly.
Adam Cole said:
“Funny enough because it just recently happened, I really really want to wrestle in a Hell in a Cell someday.” “Cause I’m an absolute maniac. I just think about all the iconic moments and matches. HBK and The Undertaker, Mankind and The Undertaker, there’s so many different examples of classic Hell in a Cell matches. When I think about that iconic moment when the music is playing and the cell is lowering, I just remember being so excited and it still makes me feel that way. I do hope my body will strongly disagree with me, but I do hope some day I get the chance to wrestle in a Hell in a Cell, that would be awesome.”
“In a perfect world, if past, present or future doesn’t matter, me vs. Shawn Michaels is the one I would love. If I’m picking current guys to possibly face right now, I’m going to go Kyle O’Reilly, I am. I feel like if I beat Kyle O’Reilly in Hell in a Cell, it’s over. Then I can move on, go back to going after the NXT Championship, then I can move on. Either Shawn Michaels or Kyle O’Reilly.”
