Adam Cole | AEW

Adam Cole is believed to have suffered a concussion during tonight’s Forbidden Door event.

Bryan Alvarez is reporting that Cole is believed to have suffered a concussion during tonight’s four-way IWGP World Heavyweight title match.

The finish of the match had Kazuchika Okada go for the rainmaker on Cole, who ducked the clothesline and collapsed to the floor. Jay White, who was outside of the ring, came in and delivered the bladerunner to Okada. White then rolled Cole over and pinned him to retain the championship.

After the match, AEW medical staff checked on Cole as The Young Bucks and Kyle O’Reilly came to the ring, stared down Hangman Page, then checked on Cole.

Prior to tonight, Cole hadn't wrestled since the Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament final at Double or Nothing back on May 29, defeating Samoa Joe. He was originally scheduled for a ten man tag team match on the following Wednesday’s Dynamite, but was removed from the match shortly after the announcement.
