Kyle O'Reilly: Bio
Kyle O’Reilly covers the ground he struts on. He’s a wisecracking striker extraordinaire whose cocksure stride is owed primarily to two factors: his near-flawless capabilities inside the ring and his longtime association with The Undisputed ERA, perhaps NXT’s greatest faction ever.
O’Reilly spent more than a decade perfecting his craft before coming to NXT in 2017. With an extensive background in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, kickboxing and other martial arts, O’Reilly had become a master striker and submission specialist by the time he made it to the black-and-gold brand.
Falling in with The Undisputed ERA almost immediately upon his arrival, O’Reilly has been a pivotal part of the group’s machinery from day one. The hard-hitting Canadian has won the NXT Tag Team Championship multiple times with Bobby Fish and defended it alongside fellow Undisputed ERA members Adam Cole and Roderick Strong. Indeed, his partnership with Fish is considered the pinnacle of tag team wrestling, and to watch them in action is to witness a barbaric ballet that’s equal parts mesmerizing and destructive.
And although the tag ranks are where he’s excelled, O’Reilly has factored into the singles championship scene, too. O’Reilly shined in the first Gauntlet Eliminator Match in 2020 and challenged NXT Champion Finn Bálor at TakeOver 31 in an incredible bout that earned him praise from every corner of the industry, cementing his standing as a singles threat.
As long as The Undisputed ERA can count Kyle O’Reilly among its members, the rest of the NXT roster has no choice but to remain on high alert.
