Matt Riddle attacked Undisputed ERA from the crowd
Now that The Undisputed ERA are not only back on the same page but also destined for two title matches at TakeOver: XXV, the faction was all smiles. Adam Cole declared them “stronger than ever” and once again promised that Undisputed ERA will be “draped in championship gold” very soon.
One person who disagreed with that assessment was Cole’s TakeOver opponent, NXT Champion Johnny Gargano. Johnny TakeOver interrupted The Panama City Playboy to remind him of the scoreboard from TakeOver: New York, when Gargano defeated Cole two falls to one.
Despite Gargano’s point, Cole & Co. were prepared to continue their celebration until Matt Riddle jumped the barricade and made a beeline for Roderick Strong in retaliation for Strong’s sneak-attack on The Original Bro last week. Gargano joined Riddle in the ring, sparking a huge pull-apart brawl that prompted William Regal to later announce a tag team main event, pitting Gargano & Riddle against Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly.
