While speaking with TMZ recently, Adam Cole expressed his frustration regarding him not being the current NXT Champion. Cole firmly believes in the fact that he should once again be holding gold in NXT.
He also claimed that he should be at the front of the line when it comes to getting championship opportunities.
Cole further stated that at the upcoming Halftime Heat, the former North American Champion will once again prove why he deserves to be at the front of the line.
"I'll tell you this much, the history between the six of us is a lot deeper than a lot of people think. But when it comes down to it, I'm a guy who feels like I should be a champion in NXT.
I think it's an outrage that I am not."In addition, the leader of The Undisputed Era also claimed that he will prove who the real champions of NXT are to all three of his opponents along with his Halftime Heat tag team partners, NXT Champion, Tommaso Ciampa, and North American Champion, Johnny Gargano.
"We have guys on the opposing team like Ricochet, Velveteen Dream, & Aleister Black who feel, for some reason, they're in the front of the line. I'm very aware that Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano have championships in NXT but when it comes to the front of the line, that's all Adam Cole. Adam Cole's not in the back of the line anywhere.
So these three guys can sit there and say that they deserve to be champion but at halftime heat, I'm going to show them, along with Tomasso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano, who the real champions in NXT are. I can promise you that."
