Adam Cole has released an apology for his behavior during an interview last week with Pat McAfee.
Cole tweeted a statement on Monday saying:
“I’ve had the weekend to think about everything, and it’s still hard to put into words where to begin. First of all, to anyone that I offended, I apologize. I apologize because I represent a brand that commands respect. Not just because of what we do in the ring, but how we handle ourselves outside the ring. Even though he continued to push my buttons, I still should have kept my composure and acted like a professional. I’m embarrassed by my reaction, and I will make sure something like that never happens again. Thanks for the continued support everyone.”
In case you missed it, Cole stormed out of the interview after being prodded for most of the conversation by McAfee. Things reached a fever point though after Pat called him “kind of small.”
This caused Cole to cuss at McAfee a few times times before shoving one of the people who work on the show trying to intervene and walking out.
While all of this is likely a work, it’s still a good one.
