Velveteen Dream, Matt Riddle & Tyler Breeze crashed Undisputed ERA’s celebration, leading to massive main event
ORLANDO, Fla. — Adam Cole was delighted to begin his inaugural address as NXT Champion with a smug reminder: “Told you so.” Accompanied by the rest of The Undisputed ERA, Cole said his title win was only the first step toward fulfilling the ERA’s audacious prophecy of championship dominance. Promising to remake the NXT Universe in an “Undisputed image,” Cole threw to a remixed version of the WWE NXT show’s opening that only featured highlights of The Undisputed ERA. He further instructed the reigning NXT North American and Tag Team champions to polish their titles and get them ready for the eventual coronations of Roderick Strong, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly.
That rankled Velveteen Dream, who interrupted the celebration to express his interest in Cole’s NXT Title. Strong took exception, saying Dream doesn’t deserve to be the North American Champion, and his critique brought out Matt Riddle, who pointed out his own recent singles victories over The Messiah of the Backbreaker and The Panama City Playboy. Cole accused The Original Bro of being jealous and said Riddle is “living in The Undisputed ERA.”
That’s when Tyler Breeze strutted to the stage. Prince Pretty took a swipe at Undisputed ERA for taking credit for NXT’s success (the NXT O.G. said it’s a brand that he built “before any of you idiots were even here”) and informed everyone that NXT General Manager William Regal had taken up his suggestion for a Six-Man Tag Team Match between three members Undisputed ERA and the team of Prince Pretty, The Original Bro and the NXT North American Champion, setting the stage for an explosive main event.
