NXT Champion Adam Cole Talks Representing The Brand On Its Move To TV
The current NXT Champion Adam Cole is enthusiastic about the possibilities for the yellow-and-black brand now that they have a weekly TV show.
“NXT is going to be the most exciting show on television,” Cole told Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso.
“NXT was put on the USA Network because of the work that the NXT brand put in. If the show wasn’t good, we wouldn’t be on USA. Our focus is, week after week, putting on the best show possible,” he said.
