Ricochet & Pete Dunne face off against Undisputed ERA
Newly crowned NXT North American Champion Ricochet and longstanding WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne will team up to take on two other reigning titleholders this week, Undisputed ERA’s Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly, in a non-title grudge match. Coming off an explosive NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV, there’s plenty of unfinished business still lingering in the background.
For one, what could possibly be on the mind of Adam Cole? As the smoke settles from Ricochet’s system-shocking victory over Cole in Brooklyn, there’s no telling what kind of scheme The Undisputed ERA ringleader has up his sleeves.
In the case of Ricochet and The BruiserWeight, the NXT Universe is still talking about their tense exchange with Undisputed ERA backstage at TakeOver: Brooklyn IV. Although they are set to be teammates this week, Dunne didn’t seem interested in being Ricochet’s “mate” in Brooklyn, even though he helped The One and Only run off Undisputed ERA. How will that pseudo challenge affect their upcoming tag team match?
And speaking of tag teams, the reigning champions of NXT’s tandem division, Strong & O’Reilly, received a brutal introduction to The War Raiders at TakeOver: Brooklyn IV. As all eyes will be on tonight’s matchup, Undisputed ERA might be wise to watch their own backs when they take on the powerful, if uneasy, alliance of Ricochet & Dunne.
