Keith Lee confronted The Undisputed ERA
After being blindsided by Bálor last week on NXT, the NXT Champion wanted to pin down "The Prince" to clarify where his allegiances stood once and for all. The Panama City Playboy's words instead drew the arrival of Lee, fresh off sending Cole rocketing into the NXT Universe in viral fashion a week earlier.
With The Limitless Superstar declaring that he was in the process of deciding which one of The Undisputed ERA's titles to pursue, the Bobby Fish-less trio threatened fistiscuffs — but Lee was one step ahead of them.
Spiking Cole on the head with a microphone, Lee out-muscled both Roderick Strong and Kyle O'Reilly. The NXT Champion backtracked up the ramp but found no respite with Tommaso Ciampa emerging to send him back into the lion's pit with Lee.
Fortunately for Cole, his Undisputed ERA compatriots helped pry him free from what surely would have been a devastating powerbomb.
And while they found their way out of dodge, Cole's title was left behind in the ring in the process. Ciampa locked his eyes on 'Goldie," lifting it from the mat in what could be a sign of things to come.
