It was one of the biggest openers ever for an AEW Dynamite. Adam Cole, one of the biggest additions to the roster in the promotion’s history, made his in-ring debut against Frankie Kazarian. The major question at hand was if Cole could deliver as he moved on from his NXT career. If you are hoping to hear a quick answer, then the answer was yes. Cole was hitting on all cylinders within a couple of minutes, but “The Elite Hunter” was not going to go away quietly. Kazarian answered time and time again as the 23-year veteran showed he still has plenty of gas in the tank to hang with one of today’s best. They battled back and forth, even resulting in Cole tuning up the band like his former mentor, Shawn Michaels.

Cole answered those doubters in the end when he would hit the Panama Sunrise, following it up with the Last Shot knee to the back of Kazarian’s head for the win. Cole understandably did not miss a step as his time out of action was only a month long. If anyone were wondering how Cole’s fit would be in AEW, the answer would be “like a glove.” His next match will see him team with The Young Bucks for the first time in four years, reforming the SuperKliq. That should shut down any doubters that remain.
