On this week’s NXT Super Tuesday, Adam Cole lost his chance for the NXT Championship against Finn Balor. Following the match, the backstage interaction showed Adam Cole do the ‘too sweet’ high five with Finn to end the feud. On the same show Roderick Strong defeated Killian Dain with the help of Bobby Fish, but what is next for The Undisputed Era?
The Undisputed Era, for me, are the best group WWE have had since DX. I know that is a strong statement to make, but their chemistry is fantastic. WWE has a real winner on their hands with this group, but I’ve got a feeling the cracks are starting to show. On the last two weeks of the show, Adam Cole has not had any of the UE with him in his matches; also there was some slight conflict with Kyle O’Reilly and the other members of the UE.
After Kyle O’Reilly’s victory over Drake Maverick, both Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish attacked Drake. Kyle O’Reilly didn’t really appear into the attack and wasn’t present on the latest edition of NXT. It will be interesting to see how this develops but I really hope they don’t split this group up. So what does the future hold? The draft is supposedly coming in October so it will be interesting to see what happens.
There are so many tag teams and feuds the UE can be involved in if moving to the main roster. From Adam Cole going against talents such as Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and more. The tag team division would also be smashed open with fantastic feuds like the UE against the Street Profits or the Uso’s. Then you have Roderick Strong, the most underrated talent of the group. He could face anyone in the mid-card position and push them right into the main event scene. In reality the options are endless, and the faction could be a force to be reckoned with.
What also could happen is the worst possible scenario. What if Vince McMahon decides the UE are not for him? It doesn’t bare thinking about, but it isn’t the first time he’s split up a cash cow group. Due to their individual talents, there is no reason to split this group up. They can have their own feuds whilst still under the banner of the UE, but something in me is thinking change is coming.
The future of the UE is still not decided. The one thing I think we can all agree on is that they helped put NXT on the map. 2020 was the era of the all gold team and they had some of the best feuds within NXT. No matter what happens with this group, we can all agree that the black and gold brand has benefited from the UE; and that my friends is undisputed.
