Jordan Myles chose to claim a title opportunity against NXT Champion Adam Cole
ORLANDO, Fla. — While Adam Cole crowed about being the greatest NXT Champion in the black-and-gold brand’s history following his winning performance at TakeOver: Toronto, the rest of the Undisputed ERA vented about being “screwed” out of victories — and, thus, denied the chance to fulfill the ERA’s golden prophecy — at NXT’s most recent marquee event.
Roderick Strong noted that he was not pinned in the NXT North American Title Triple Threat Match and accused champion Velveteen Dream of ducking him, while Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish demanded that NXT General Manager William Regal address the matter of the illegal pinfall that cost them their NXT Tag Team Title Match against The Street Profits.
Those setbacks aside, The Undisputed ERA were in bright spirits … that is, until Jordan Myles arrived with his championship match contract in hand. Although Cole initially laughed off the notion of the Breakout Tournament winner challenging for his crown, The Panama City Playboy was considerably less amused when Myles — who remained silent and stone-faced while enduring Cole’s insults — dropped the contract at the champion’s feet, broke into a wide smile and peaced out, clearly unrattled by Cole’s intimidation tactics.
Before the end of the night, the NXT Universe found out that not only will Fish & O’Reilly challenge The Street Profits for the tandem titles next week on WWE Network, but also that Myles will vie for Cole’s NXT Title in a championship bout on the Sept. 4 edition of NXT!
