The Devil has been revealed, bay-bay.
AEW Worlds End was shockingly interrupted as Samoa Joe eliminated MJF in order to become the new AEW World Champion. Once Joe took off, Adam Cole then entered the ring to console his best friend after this devastating loss. Shortly after, four masked men appeared at ringside and quickly entered the ring, ready to confront MJF and Cole.
Three of the masked men held Cole and MJF down while one of them stood in the middle with a chair ready to hit either of them. The lights then went out and came back on to reveal Cole sitting in the chair with the four men standing behind him. Seconds later, they all removed their masks to reveal themselves as Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett, Matt Taven, and Wardlow. They continued to beat MJF while Cole looked on as if his foot was still apparently injured. Regardless, Adam Cole is indeed the Devil.
The seeds were sown for these five men to be involved for several weeks. Wardlow has been clamoring for a world title shot at MJF since his recent return, while Strong and The Kingdom constantly accused MJF of being the Devil himself. It appears that Cole had his reasons for turning his back on his nemesis turned tag team partner, although we have yet to learn the full motivating factor behind his decision. One thing is for sure, Cole has officially sided with his former partners in Strong, Bennett and Taven while adding a powerhouse like Wardlow to the mix.
