Adam Cole, without a doubt one of the best wrestlers in the entire world, has been recently interviewed by Stephanie Chase, where he spoke about his feeling on being able to work alongside his real-life partner Britt Baker.
Cole started giving his thoughts on how they ended up dating each other, going back to their days teaming up at the independent scene and later when he arrived to NXT and Britt had signed with All Elite Wrestling.
“For three months, I had been doing independent shows leading up to my NXT debut. This was right around the time when I started dating Britt, so I would be booked on shows where she would also be booked on the show. And we got to team a couple of times in that three-month period, which was really cool.
Then I, of course, go to NXT, Britt is with AEW. I get to watch Britt develop into this amazing performer that she’s turned into. So coming in AEW, of course, right away, I am thinking, ‘oh man, it’s going to be so cool and so much fun when we get the chance to team up together.’ It just felt like the right time at that moment to be able to go that route in the angle I was doing with Orange Cassidy.”
Cole also reflected on his sensations on being able to hang out with her backstage, instead of just chatting in a 5-minute FaceTime call.
“There’s a picture of us, or maybe it’s a GIF, where we are standing there warming up, standing in the ring. Britt’s in her gear, I am in my gear, and we are looking at the entrance ramp. It makes me so happy. For years, me and Britt have always been used to long-distance relationships because that’s how we started.

So getting to actually be behind the curtain when she walks through, or walk to the ring with her vs. a five-minute Facetime afterward is much nicer.” (Credit to Stephanie Chase for the interview, H/T to WrestlingInc)
Adam Cole had made a name for himself in the independent scene, before signing with NXT and becoming one of the top stars in the former Black & Gold brand. He decided to not re-sign with WWE and wrestled his last match at NXT TakeOver 36 against Kyle O’Reilly, moving on to debut for All Elite Wrestling at last year’s All Out pay-per-view.
