WWE NXT video highlights: Adam Cole sit-down interview


On last night's NXT, Adam Cole made his first appearance since the aftermath of TakeOver: Stand & Deliver.

Cole took part in a sit-down interview with sports writer and radio host Arash Markazi on last night's show. Cole claimed that Kyle O'Reilly got lucky in their unsanctioned match at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver and isn't ready for the main event spot. Cole said he knows O'Reilly isn't sure if he's ready to be in the main event or ready to be NXT Champion. Cole said the reason O'Reilly is feeling those insecurities is because they're very real.

Cole vowed that as long as he's in NXT, O'Reilly will never take his spot.

Cole was then asked about the NXT Championship picture. Cole said NXT Champion Karrion Kross is good, but he doesn't know if Kross is great yet. Cole brought up the separated shoulder that Kross suffered when he won the NXT Championship for the first time last year. Cole questioned whether the injury was a freak mistake or a sign that Kross isn't ready. Cole said that -- if and when he decides he wants to go after the NXT Championship -- the clock will be ticking for Kross.

When asked what's next for him, Cole said it's no one else's business and refused to answer. Cole said he's carried NXT and is pissed off that people think O'Reilly is going to replace him. Cole said that -- no matter where he ends up -- he's going to be the best damn Adam Cole that anyone has ever seen.

As Cole's interview ended, O'Reilly was shown watching it on a television screen and shaking his head in disgust.
