It could have gone another way. The last week in WWE has seen one of their more interesting stories in a long time with NXT’s invasion of both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. This has caused some changes to the way WWE has run its television and it seems to have been for the better. Two of the biggest matches to date have involved NXT Champion Adam Cole, who has looked like a star. He has been good enough that he deserves a spot at Survivor Series, and it turns out that a major star had something in mind involving something related to Cole.
This week’s NXT featured the OC invading the NXT Arena, marking a rare appearance from full time main roster talent at Full Sail University. AJ Styles and the Good Brothers attacked the Undisputed Era before facing Tommaso Ciampa, Keith Lee and Matt Riddle in the main event. Cole interfered in the match, causing it to result in a no contest. This would suggest that a match will be taking place between the OC and the Undisputed Era later on, which is exactly what someone had in mind.
This seems to be setting things in motion. Check out how the big brawl started:
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Styles himself pitched a match between the two trios for the upcoming Survivor Series event. However, the match was turned down as the match is likely to be taking place on a future episode of NXT instead. Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish are currently scheduled to be part of a triple threat match at Survivor Series and Roderick Strong is rumored to be taking part in a yet to be announced triple threat match with Styles and Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura.
Opinion: This is a match that may not qualify as a dream match but it could be something that gives us quite the entertaining showcase. The Undisputed Era is the most dominant faction NXT has seen in years if not ever and having them face off with a main roster group that they could conceivably beat is a good sign for them. It is the kind of match that makes the Era look more impressive, which means whoever takes their titles look better down the line. Everyone wins, except for the people who lose.
