That sounds like a challenge to me. One of the biggest stories in 2019 was the Battle For Brand Supremacy between Monday Night Raw, SmackDown and NXT. The three shows went to battle at Survivor Series in a show built around the idea of which show was the best in the ring. To the shock of several fans, NXT pulled off the upset and won the night. NXT was suddenly a major player and it may be time to see where things are going.
Over the last year or so, the Undisputed Era has become the top stars of NXT, to the point where they currently hold all of the promotion’s major titles at the same time. That is the kind of thing that does not happen very often in any wrestling promotion and it is bound to give the wrestlers some confidence. As it turns out, it might have made one of the members willing to bite off a bit more than he can chew.
Over the weekend, Undisputed Era member Bobby Fish responded to an Instagam post from Ring of Honor, showing Fish vs. AJ Styles from 2015. Fish called Styles a “bumpkin”, saying that Styles could not defeat him in 2015 and that he would be no match for Fish today either. At the moment, there is no suggestion of any match between the two of them, either in a singles or tag format.

This is where the internet can help wrestling fans. Check out Styles vs. Fish from 2015 and Styles and company getting some revenge in 2019:
Opinion: One of the best things to come out of that Survivor Series was the fact that this is something you could possibly see. The firm lines between the shows have blurred quite a bit now and the idea of Styles going down to NXT, or Fish and the Undisputed Era coming up to the main roster, are rather conceivable. I could go for any combination of those things and they very well could wind up taking place. Not a bad time to be a wrestling fan eh?
