The Undisputed Era & Jordan Myles In-Ring Segment
— WWE (@WWE) August 22, 2019
Boys and girls, Adam Cole did everything he said he would. He successfully defend his NXT Championship at TakeOver Toronto. Now, people are saying that Cole had the performance of a lifetime. It’s no longer a question, Cole is the greatest NXT Champion that every existed. If there was an NXT Mount Rushmore you wouldn’t see the faces of Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Shinsuke Nakamura or Finn Balor. NXT’s Mount Rushmore would have Adam Cole’s beautiful face on it four times. All four members of The Undisputed Era should be standing in the ring draped in gold. The Undisputed Prophecy has yet to be fulfilled because they got screwed. Velveteen Dream didn’t pin Roderick Strong at TakeOver. Strong says that Dream’s NXT North American Title run is on borrowed time. As soon as Dream stops ducking him, Strong will fulfill that prophecy.
Kyle O’Reilly informs us that in order to win a tag team match you have to pin the legal man. Ladies and gentlemen, O’Reilly gives you to Exhibit A. O’Reilly doesn’t have a law degree, but he rest his case. The Undisputed Era didn’t lose to The Street Profits. Bobby Fish calls William Regal a silly prat. Fish wants Regal to rectify this injustice. You know what is right for NXT? Undisputed Era draped in championship gold. Cole calls Fish and O’Reilly the greatest tag team in NXT History. That NXT North American Championship has Roderick Strong’s name on it. They are two steps away from running this place. Two steps away from making NXT, Undisputed.
Jordan Myles appears on the stage. Myles is not using his championship opportunity to challenge Adam Cole? Cole has seen Myles before. A big smile, a lot of energy, a lot of confidence. Cole will break that stupid smile on Myles face. Maybe Myles should challenge Shayna Baszler or any of the champions from NXT UK and 205 Live. None of those champions are on the level of Adam Cole. There’s nothing more damaging to a young career than waisting a championship opportunity. If Myles makes that mistake, Cole will make his career an undisputed failure. Myles has a blank look on his face. Myles wants Cole to sign the contract.
