In-Ring: Undisputed Era, Jordan Myles
— WWE (@WWE) August 22, 2019
The NXT Men’s Champion, Adam Cole makes his way to the ring with his fellow Undisputed Era members.
Adam says that he did everything he said he would. He beat Johnny Gargano at Takeover and he successfully defended his NXT Championship. Adam says people are saying that he had the performance of a lifetime and now it is no longer a question, he is the greatest NXT champion who has ever lived. Adam wants to give everyone an example. If there was an NXT Mount Rushmore, you wouldn’t see the faces of Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Shinsuke Nakamura, or Finn Balor. It would have Adam Cole’s face four times.
Roderick stays all four of them should be standing here draped in gold. The Undisputed Prophecy has yet to be fulfilled. They got screwed. Roderick says they are going to cut to the chase. Velveteen Dream, you did not pin me, you pinned Pete Dunne. Your North American Championship title run is on borrowed time. As soon as you quit ducking him, Roderick says he will fulfill his part of the prophecy.
Kyle O’Reilly says in order to win a tag team match, you have to pin the right man. Kyle presents Exhibit A when Bobby Fish made the tag during Takeover. Kyle says he may not have a ‘law degree’, but he rests his csse. Bobby says it is clear to anyone with a working set of eyes, they did not lose to the Street Profits. Bobby tells the silly prat William Regal to come out and make this right.
Adam wants them to make it right. The Undisputed Era draped in gold is what is right. Kyle and Bobby, you are the greatest tag team in NXT History and it is a matter of time before you regain the titles. Adam tells Roddy that the North American title has his name on it. Adam says they are two steps from their prophecy and from running this place. They are two steps from making this place undisputed.
As they make their way up the ramp, Jordan Myles makes his way to the stage with his contract.
Adam calls a time out and he says Jordan must be joking if he thinks he is going to use his title opportunity on the NXT Championship. If you make the mistake of challenging him, Adam says he will knock that smile off his face. Why not challenge Shayna Baszler. What about going to NXT UK or 205 Live to challenge their champions? They are not on the same level as Adam Cole. Adam decided to speak slowly since Jordan does not appear to be listening. There is nothing more detrimental to a young wrestler’s career than to challenge him for the title. Adam says if you challenge him, he will make your career an undisputed failure.
Jordan hands the contract to Adam and then he drops it in front of Adam.
