End of an Undisputed Era
In recent months we have seen the much deserved ascension of Kyle O' Riley who tore down the house with World Champion Finn Balor. At NXT Takeover: Vengeance Day we saw Pete Dunne step up against Finn Balor, but the leader of black and gold held onto the gold. Following the match and a save from Undisputed Era after Pete's stablemates ran in to attack Finn we saw a shock moment nobody expected when Adam Cole hit two superkicks heard round the world. After sending the heels away Cole would turn toward World Champion Balor and hit the first superkick then toward an angry Kyle and hit a second superkick on his longtime friend.
Since their debut in 2017 when they jumped Drew McIntyre and made an immediate impact in NXT it was clear they would be superstars. The trio would add Roderick Strong to the faction at NXT Takeover: New Orleans after Roddy turned on his partner Pete Dunne (ironic). Adam would become the longest reigning World Champion on the brand, Kyle and Bobby would maintain their position as the top team on the brand. Roddy would hold the back half with the North American title and fill in for Bobby Fish every now and again teaming with Kyle. The Undisputed Era had been the top heels in NXT until last year when Pat Mcafee made his debut on the brand setting up a rivalry with Adam Cole and a turn to the good side for the first time.
However, it was short lived as we move back to modern time when Adam jumped Kyle again the following week on NXT and ended up getting Kyle stretchered off after a brain buster on the ring steps. The intensity of this feud will not go away anytime soon and there will no doubt be a point when sides are chosen between the other members including Roddy and Bobby Fish it is clear they both will likely pick Kyle's side unless they want to keep sides equal for some time. Roddy could also remain as peacekeeper to try and keep his friends together until the time comes where it's clear he can't do it anymore. Think about this last year we saw the end of Johnny Gargano vs Tomasso Ciampa and now a year later we have a new blood feud to sink our teeth into as intense feuds are always a strong suit for NXT.
