After an absence of nearly six months due to head trauma from multiple concussions, Adam Cole made a surprise return to AEW on last night’s (January 11) episode of . dynamite.
Cole discussed some of the challenges he endured after suffering a traumatic brain injury last year, including headaches, dizzy spells, vomiting and endless visits with doctors. Cole said he was scared and didn’t know what was happening to him. He thought his wrestling career was over.
Adam concluded his beloved show by saying that despite all the health problems he’s dealt with, he’s finally back, and he’s going to be the number one guy in the business.
Cole’s time with a mic included a quick mention to his girlfriend, one of AEW’s top stars, DMD Dr. Brett Baker. Earlier today, she expressed how proud she was of Adam for breaking his ass to get back into pro wrestling:
For months the only time @tweet Left home was to go to bran/physiotherapy appointments. There was a time when he wasn’t allowed to fly on planes or do anything more than go for a walk. I am so proud of how hard he works every day to get back to all of you. ♥️

Cole was grateful for her comment and gave her the credit she deserves for helping him through it all:
Thanks for being in my corner every step of the way. I couldn’t do it without you ♥️
