In-Ring: Pat McAfee, Danny Burch, Oney Lorcan, Pete Dunne
Pat McAfee is in the ring with Danny Burch, Oney Lorcan, and Pete Dunne. Pat says you are looking at the greatest four men to get together in the history of the wrestling business. We run NXT and there is no doubt about it. We are not a bunch of scumbags. We are men of class. We are professional. Since we are the new kings of NXT, we should pay tribute to the last group that ran roughshod in NXT, the Undisputed Era. We will put their banner in the rafters to commemorate what we did to them.
In 2017, this group came along in The NXT. He talks about their hand gestures and how they were over with the fans. They said they needed another member and . . . Pete Dunne says Roderick Strong taught him a valuable lesson. You need to trust the right people. Last week, I decided to return the favor and show Kyle O’Reilly the same lesson. After Roddy joined, they won championships but they became greedy. They left all of the talent by the wayside because of the push that Undisputed Era got.
Danny says they have a combined 30 years in the business and we were told we would never be on the same level as Undisputed Era and look at us now.
Pat says Undisputed Era was allowed to do what they wanted. All it took was one run in with me. At Takeover XXX, Cole beat me but he didn’t show me any respect. At the next Takeover, Ridge Holland attacked Adam Cole. He brought in people who didn’t like Undisputed Era. It is time for our reign to begin. We remember the past but the future is much better.
