The Velveteen Dream, Bobby Fish and Adam Cole In-Ring Segment: 

If you didn’t realize The Velveteen Dream has a little sparkle in his eyes. Dream has something special in his sights. You all know better than anybody that Dream waits for no man. If you really knew him, you would know that the sparkle in his eye is a sparkle of championship gold. More specifically the North American Championship. Dream gets interrupted by Adam Cole and Bobby Fish from The Undisputed Era. Cole tells Dream to pump the brakes.

Everybody knows that 2019 will be the year of the Undisputed Era. They will capture all championship gold. Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong are getting ready for another title defense. Cole and Fish however don’t have any gold to speak of. They don’t like arriving empty handed and they will have gold around their waists. You can continue to dream on. Dream is making a mistake getting the hopes of the crowd raised. Dream needs to learn to live in reality because 2019 will continue to be our era. That is undisputed. Dream is ready to dispute that claim, but only if it is okay with Adam Cole.
