A day in the life of the uncrowned BEST OF THE BEST, CZW WORLD Junior Heavyweight Champion, and international sex symbol, Adam Cole

Hello CZW fans,

The fact that you have chosen to click on the link and read what I'm up to shows that you aren't completely stupid, which is something I guess you should be proud of. Now if you really want to learn something, you should continue reading.

Before we go any further on our journey however, I first want to say that I forgive you CZW. I know it had to be the biggest mistake in company history to make me (ME!!!) qualify for Best of the Best this year, and you have to be really embarrassed at this point for making such a poor decision. I am a man not only of great talent, but am one with a kind and understanding heart as well. You are clearly not perfect, and I must be understanding of that. Because to be honest, your stupidity just makes me look that much greater. So I am here to promise CZW and it's fanbase, that I will not only qualify for Best of the Best, but I will become your champion. How do you ask? Well, let's just say that I do a little bit of preperation. Here is just a taste of what I do each and everyday during the week, to ensure that I continue to be absolutely tremendous.

(Every Weekday)

10:00 a.m. - Awaken from my bed (king size); Find a mirror, and look at my 6-pack. This is what we call a confidence booster. When I look in the mirror and see how sexy I look, it just reconfirms how great I am. In your case, maybe sleep with a shirt on. That way you can hide your hairy flabby gut. This will prevent you from starting each and every day as a dissapointment. I would suggest going to the gym or eating healthy, but that's too much work. So just make sure you are clothed at all times :)

10:30 a.m. - I start my day off right with not only a healthy breakfast, but a breakfast of champions. I know many of you idiots are thinking Wheaties, but that would be the "I'm too lazy to make real food so I'll eat cereal" breakfast. What I'm talking about is 6 egg whites, two pieces of whole wheat toast (dry), a banana, and my multi-vitamin pack. One of the many reasons I have a rockin' bod and such a likeable personality, is because I start my day off correctly. Like a champion.

11:30 a.m. - Now I am off to my other home away from home, the gym. Exercise is key to being better than most, because many don't do it. Like you for example. Don't worry I keep the weights busy so they don't get bored. I strength train for about an hour, then do abbs (Editors Note: If you work out at my gym and are reading this, please stop staring at me when I do abb exercises. I know they are mezmerizing, but it really distracts me. I get it I'm hot, now leave me alone!)

To be continued...as this is more than enough for you to process right now. I would also print this picture out and hang it above your bed post, just as a reminder of what you should strive too look like...

Uncrowned 2010 Best of the Best Champion, CZW World Junior Heavyweight Champion, and international sex symbol,

Make or Break

Over the past couple of weeks, I have done a lot of soul searching. In a profession where you are constantly pushed to your limits physically, mentally, and emotionally, often times you arn't given the chance to sit back and evaluate yourself. To envision who you are and where you'd like to be is an after thought. It's all about making sure you deliver each time you step out there. There is no thoughts of what the future holds, just what you have to do now to make sure you have a future.

To say that this rings true in EVOLVE is an understatement. In a company that is founded on a win loss record completely, you have to be focused on the present time or you will quickly find yourself with a lossing record. This was my exact case at EVOLVE 3. I was so excited (and still am) on being a part of this company, that I kept saying to myself  "Someday I hope to be as good as a Bryan Danielson, as good as a Chris Hero." With that someday mindset, Sami Callihan had his vision of "I will be 1-0 tonight, because I am as good as anyone here," and he was right in his thought. He defeated me in both of our debuts. This was when my mind started to make a change...

Come EVOLVE 4, I had an even harder challenge in Johnny Gargano. I knew that if I didn't beat Johnny, none of the boys in the locker room, none of the fans, would take me seriously. I needed to prove to them, and prove to myself, that I belonged here in EVOLVE. And I did that. At EVOLVE 4, I defeated Johnny Gargano in what some are calling the biggest upset in the company's history. I gained the respect of my peers that night, and more importantly, I gained that respect in myself. However, there's one man who hasn't shown me any respect since I've arrived here in EVOLVE. That man is Jimmy Jacobs.

Jimmy, from the very first EVOLVE show you have treated me not as your equal, but as a boy who doesn't deserve to breath the same air as you. I took all of your insults, because I had done nothing to earn your respect and had been questioning my abilities. I would often lie awake at night and think to myself "Do you have what it takes? Do you belong here?" I'm here to tell you Jimmy, that not only do I belong here in EVOLVE, but I am better than you are. Nobody on this planet wants to be the best more than I do Jimmy, and you will find that out September 11.

I actually want to thank you for all that you've done for me Jimmy. With all your insults, all your degrading comments, you've made me realize that you can't rely how you feel about yourself based on what others think of you. You made me realize that when I wake up, I take all of those negative comments that you have made and I use them as fuel to make me work even harder. My mind is clear, my vision is set. Jimmy, I will be looked at as one of the greats someday, and there is nothing that you can say or do that will stop me.

Thank you Jimmy Jacobs, for the much needed wake up call.

Young, Hungry Lion

8/16/2010: CHIKARA has done an excellent job since it's existence doing that one thing that wrestling promotions and wrestlers themselves try to become - and that's something different. To say that CHIKARA has been succeeding would be an understatement. This company is arguably the fastest-growing independent wrestling company in the United States, and it's because they have stuck to their guns and have continued to do what they do best. They're different.

CHIKARA is a company that every aspiring young wrestler wants to be a part of. It's a chance to showcase your abilities in front of some of the most talented performers in the world, and some of the most appreciative fans that there are. To be a part of the Young Lions Cup is not only a great honor, but an excellent opportunity. Just being in this tournament is proof that you have been recognized as one of the standout young guys on the circuit. But to win the thing, that's on a whole other level. You are the best, most promising young guy in the business if you walk away with that trophy. Some people have called me the dark horse in this tournament. I'm about to tell you why I'm the favorite...

Because I am different. Just like CHIKARA, Adam Cole sticks to his guns. I do what works for me, and I believe in what I bring to the table. I don't wear a mask, I am not as athletically gifted as the luchadores that I may face. What I do possess though, is a confidence and belief in myself that many of my peers in this tournament lack. We are all young. We are all hungry. Many are unsure. Not unsure because they don't have the tools, but because they have not been on a stage as big as the Young Lions Cup.

Since I started wrestling, I have been physically and emotionally challeneged everytime I step through those ropes, each challenge bigger than the last. And I have prevailed. The YLC is no different. I intend to walk away as the YLC champion, and I intend to show the CHIKARA fans what I bring to the table.

The Road is Long (But Fun!)

9:29 p.m. - August 4, 2010

Don't you notice that everytime you talk to someone about traveling, they always say how they wish that they could more? They always want a vacation so they can get on the road, just unwind and let their hair down. That's why as I sit here with my cup of coffee (yea i know it's late), I continue to be thankful for my choice of professional wrestling.

What a perk right? You get to go up and down the road with all of your friends, and experience life the way that it's ment to be experienced! A constant spontaneous joyride (awesome movie) with your friends. CZW is debuting in North Carolina this weekend, and I'm somehow just as excited for the road trip as I am the match! Just sitting back and reflecting, going down the road is a lot like how me and my opponent this weekend, Ryan Slater, have progressed along the way.

It can be bumpy at times, but if you keep pushing forward, you will reach your destination. Ryan Slater is lucky in that he hasn't reached his destination known as the CZW World Junior Heavyweight Title. He's still hungry, and now more so than ever because he can taste it. I have reached that point of becoming champion, and now I find myself going down a never ending road of title defense after title defense, each one harder than the last. Most engines burn out after too much abuse. Unfortunatly for Slater, my engine only continues to get stronger and stronger, and the more pressure there is, the more it fuels me. The road to the championship is close Slater. It's ashame that you'll just have to get used to tasting it on your tounge.

All in all, I'm excited to go on another unforgetable road trip that I'm sure will be one to remember. Maybe my next blog will be just about those stories alone!
