 Strong Era

For the first time in his life, Roderick Strong understands what it means to have something — or someone — worth fighting for.
Strong had his share of obstacles to overcome, including a messy home life. That’s why he spent his upbringing escaping to the wrestling ring set up in his backyard. Now with a family of his own, Strong spends his time in the squared circle for an entirely different reason: to give his son the life he never had.
A seasoned veteran of sports-entertainment, Strong traveled around the world for decades plying his craft, becoming an international star in the process. Armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of devastating backbreakers, he’s left a pile of broken men in his wake wherever he goes. READ MORE

Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RODDY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today marks an extremely awesome day for us!!

We are celebrating Roderick Strong’s birthday and our site’s Second Anniversary. We are so excited to be bringing in another year with The Undisputed Messiah of the Backbreaker. As we look back on our journey. we want to also explain in a little depth of why we do what we do. Why the site is here, why we chose Roderick and what the meaning is behind the design of our layout.

As we were stating earlier, Roddy is the person who has a pure heart of gold. He’s an amazing father and friend. As a huge fan of not only him but his work, we felt the need to give him what he once had, but didn’t anymore. He needed his own space that gave his fans the opportunity to follow his career up close and personal. A space to see photos and videos that would otherwise be hard to view.
With that in mind, we began the journey of gathering as much as we could. We wanted to focus on the now first. He was in NXT and we wanted to focus on that first. Once that was completed, we started the search for earlier content. This content we want to ensure is up to par because we want to give the best content we can.

So we have had a few layouts and never decided to give an insight into it until now. We chose to use gold and grey due to the new colors that Undisputed ERA sports now. I feel that these colors bring out the fun and dominant side of Roderick. The gold brings a sense of calmness and sunshine, just like Roddy but when you get him riled up he is definitely the gloomy grey color that we had incorporated. As far as the gallery, we chose green because it was a color that we felt described Roddy’s energy. We’ve used green before but we went lighter this time. We hope that you all enjoy what’s to come.

We want to take time to talk to Roderick. The year was 2017 and it was TakeOver Chicago and you came through the audience and attacked Sanity. I was watching with my friend and was like, Who is that? My friend was like his name is Roderick Strong. From then on I was amazed. I wasn’t around for your early career, but that just gives me more to post for Strong Saturdays. Strong Saturdays is a day where we take a look back at a certain match or video and give our thoughts on it. Maybe Roddy will give his feelings about that particular video as well.

Roderick has shown us that hard work really does pay off. Roddy you have given me a new sense of what I love. I have been watching wrestling since I was a little girl. The Attitude Era in WWE was what I watched. When The Rock left wrestling, I saw it as an amazing opportunity for him to be doing movies but I also wanted to see him in the ring. After that, I was still watching wrestling, but not all into it. I just watched to support. Until my friend Brit introduced me to NXT. I was not watching it at the time. Since then, I have been hooked. NXT is really that show to watch. Amazing stories and wrestling. Roddy gave me wrestling again. He gave me the energy to watch the craft for what it is. I own other sites, but this site means so much. The fact that I can give you a place where you can see only your legacy is cool. I never thought that I would get noticed by you. I was so scared that you would ignore me. My friend Brit was like just ask him. He seems nice enough, lol. I was like ok. I tweeted and got off twitter so fast. But then you followed. That was the highlight for me. I can’t ever repay you for all the amazing things you do. You are a true angel and I couldn’t be more honored than to be behind the scenes of RoderickStrong.com and Strong Images. I opened this site today, two years ago because I wanted to show you how it is nothing but an hour and privilege to give you this gift. I hope you enjoy your birthday and hope that you continue to support the site. I love you Roddy 🙂

Adam Cole was delighted to begin his inaugural address as NXT Champion with a smug reminder: “Told you so.” Accompanied by the rest of The Undisputed ERA, Cole said his title win was only the first step toward fulfilling the ERA’s audacious prophecy of championship dominance. Promising to remake the NXT Universe in an “Undisputed image,” Cole threw to a remixed version of the WWE NXT show’s opening that only featured highlights of The Undisputed ERA. He further instructed the reigning NXT North American and Tag Team champions to polish their titles and get them ready for the eventual coronations of Roderick Strong, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly.

That rankled Velveteen Dream, who interrupted the celebration to express his interest in Cole’s NXT Title. Strong took exception, saying Dream doesn’t deserve to be the North American Champion, and his critique brought out Matt Riddle, who pointed out his own recent singles victories over The Messiah of the Backbreaker and The Panama City Playboy. Cole accused The Original Bro of being jealous and said Riddle is “living in The Undisputed ERA.”

That’s when Tyler Breeze strutted to the stage. Prince Pretty took a swipe at Undisputed ERA for taking credit for NXT’s success (the NXT O.G. said it’s a brand that he built “before any of you idiots were even here”) and informed everyone that NXT General Manager William Regal had taken up his suggestion for a Six-Man Tag Team Match between three members Undisputed ERA and the team of Prince Pretty, The Original Bro and the NXT North American Champion, setting the stage for an explosive main event.

Undisputed ERA inched closer to their claims of being “untouchable” after outgunning the all-star collective of NXT North American Champion Velveteen Dream, Matt Riddle & Tyler Breeze in a Six-Man Tag Team Match that moved a mile a minute and tested the harmony of the latter squad.

Discord reared its head at the get-go, with Dream, Riddle & Breeze debating who would start the match. Once The Original Bro finally got the nod, the six-man melee was off to the races. The makeshift anti-ERA found their groove as the battle wore on, but a ringside distraction by Kyle O’Reilly proved costly and allowed Undisputed ERA to regain the advantage. Like a well-oiled machine, Adam Cole, Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish focused their efforts on grinding The Original Bro into dust.

The double-tough Riddle escaped harm’s way after popping Cole with a brutal knee strike and tagging in the fresh Prince Pretty, who brilliantly went on the attack. The Gorgeous One was caught off-guard seconds later, however, when Velveteen Dream tagged himself into the match, and the team’s miscommunication began to snowball. Although Breeze and Dream got on the same page enough to clobber Cole with a double-superkick, they weren’t prepared for an incoming Strong, whose leaping knee strike caused Breeze to collide with Dream. Strong, who was the legal man, then pulverized Dream with the End of Heartache to secure the pin on the North American Champion and continue shifting the power toward The Undisputed ERA.

As Undisputed ERA celebrated their triumph, meanwhile, Dream, Riddle & Breeze were left frustrated and searching for answers.

NXT TakeOver XXV Digitals | NXT TakeOver XXV Video Captures

A true brawl of the mighty launched the 25th edition of NXT TakeOver, and given the sterling wrecking crews involved, there was no better way to crack the pavement.

In a painful blitz between pure strength and spine-tingling backbreakers, Matt Riddle and Roderick Strong slugged it out in a perilous back-and-forth contest. It was a physical trade-off from the get-go, with Riddle flinging his opponent across the canvas with a deadlift trifecta of gut-wrench suplexes. Not one to be outdone, The Messiah of the Backbreaker delivered a visual composite of his namesake by dropping Riddle into the ring apron with a vertebrae-shattering backdrop.

But that was just a sample of the full force these two locksmiths unloaded on each other, as Strong catapulted Riddle across the ring with a highlight reel superplex. Failing to secure a pin-count, Strong unloaded on his rival with a flurry of forearms before connecting with a belly-to-back facebuster that Riddle once again escaped. The Original Bro struck back and sent a shock to Strong’s system by sneaking out of a grueling Boston Crab submission hold to pull out an amazing execution of the Bromission. Despite powering out of the hold, Strong soon learned that his perseverance further fueled the brutal side of Riddle. After Strong slithered out of the move, Riddle responded with his own flurry of forearm attacks before taking a page out of his opponent’s playbook with a spine-stinging driver to secure the win.

The Undisputed Era Keeps Their Golden Promise: NXT Results, Dece...

WWE NXT Digitals | Video Captures
Introduction: For the majority of 2018, The Undisputed Era have held the top gold. They’ve run through opponents like AOP, Pete Dunne, Ricochet and more. Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly, who hold the NXT Tag Team Championships, have held the titles twice this year. A few weeks ago, Undisputed Era claimed that each individual would hold gold in 2019. The NXT Universe is wondering if the group will hold up their promise. At the December 26th taping of NXT, Strong and O’Reilly went head to head in a colossal match with Heavy Machinery. The ‘Steaks and Weights’ duo took Undisputed Era to their limit, but the champs kept their promise coming out of the war with a hard fought victory. WWE.com has an indepth summary of what went down as Heavy Machinery tried to bring Undisputed’s Era of Gold to an end.

WWE.com Summary: Confident, calculating and callous, Undisputed ERA withstood Heavy Machinery’s jarring hurricane to maintain their perch atop the NXT Tag Team division.

The tension between the two teams spilled out into an all-out brawl with both duos matching each other’s level of physicality. Where Otis Dozovic & Tucker Knight employed their brute strength, Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong met them in the middle with a mixture of damaging strikes. The combination between these respective forces made this contest one of the hardest-hitting NXT Tag Team Title battles this year.

Late in the bout, after landing a Caterpillar on Strong, Dozovic was quickly darted with a running kick by O’Reilly, who was clobbered by Knight. This give-and-go pace of action emphasized the high-stakes nature of this match.

In a pivotal moment, Dozovic threw caution to the wind by climbing to the top rope, only to have Strong and O’Reilly strike him back to his senses by combining to fold him with a superplex. Miraculously, the Heavy Machinery powerhouse kicked out of the pin attempt, which only fired up the wily O’Reilly & Strong to rain on Dozovic with a high/low combination that undisputedly kept him down for three.

Undisputed ERA’s Roderick Strong sent shockwaves through the EVOLVE Wrestling locker room over the weekend when he issued a challenge to EVOLVE Champion and fellow NXT Superstar Fabian Aichner on Twitter.

Now, WWE.com can confirm that Strong will not only receive at title opportunity at EVOLVE 117 on Saturday, Dec. 15 in Queens, N.Y. — facing Aichner and previously scheduled challenger Austin Theory in a Triple Threat Match — but the NXT Tag Team Champion will also face one of the sport’s most fearless risk-takers, Darby Allin, the next night at EVOLVE 118 in Deer Park, N.Y.

Strong called out Aichner via a tweet on Saturday while commenting on the recent trend of NXT Superstars competing in EVOLVE. NXT’s Italian Roughneck, who captured the EVOLVE Title in October, didn’t wait long to respond, accepting the challenge the next day:

Strong’s statement also caught the attention of Theory, who was already scheduled to challenge Aichner at EVOLVE 117 on Dec. 15. In his reply, Theory reiterated his goal of leaving Queens with the EVOLVE Title, regardless of Strong’s championship ambitions:

While Strong’s declaration earned him a spot in the Dec. 15 title match, it also drew a response from Allin, who has long been in the hunt for the EVOLVE Championship. Allin challenged The Messiah of the Backbreaker to a match on Dec. 16, leading EVOLVE to make the bout official for EVOLVE 118.

Additionally, EVOLVE has announced the full lineups for both New York events, listed below, featuring NXT’s Kassius Ohno and EVOLVE Tag Team Champions The Street Profits. Tickets for EVOLVE 117 and EVOLVE 118 are available now at WWNLive.com.

Where there’s a wall, there’s a war – and that much was certain following the demolition derby that took place inside STAPLES Center. Whereas The Undisputed ERA claimed victory in last year’s devastating WarGames Match, the nefarious faction tasted defeat this year — as NXT North American Champion Ricochet, WWE U.K. Champion Pete Dunne & War Raiders stepped out of the intimidating double cage as masters of warfare.

A rematch of the NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV started the first five minutes of the match, as NXT North American Champion Ricochet went toe-to-toe with Adam Cole. Picking up where their previous confrontations left off, the two unloaded a series of hard hits, including Cole catching a leaping Ricochet out of the air with a vertebra-pounding backstabber.

Once the first period expired, Kyle O’Reilly, who won the WarGames advantage for Undisputed ERA earlier this week on NXT, rushed out of the shark cage near the entrance way and into the ring to lend a helping hand to Cole. Together, the Undisputed ERA brothers landed a devastating Ushigoroshi on The One and Only. After the second period ended, War Raiders’ Hanson was the next to enter the action, pushing Dunne aside and bulldozing his way into WarGames, laying waste to both Cole and O’Reilly. At one point, Hanson went down on all fours to allow Ricochet to springboard off his back and land a Shooting Star Press on O’Reilly.

Later, Roderick Strong and Rowe entered the ring, sending the brewing chaos in the dual ring to boiling levels. Drama unfolded when Bobby Fish, competing in his first match since undergoing knee surgery for a torn ACL, used the padlock from his cage to lock Dunne in his own cage before tossing the key into the crowd. To keep Dunne from grabbing his fingers through the cage, Fish attacked The BruiserWeight’s knee, which was injured last Wednesday night. From there, Fish and the rest of Undisputed ERA unloaded on Dunne’s teammates with ERA-branded steel chairs, exploiting their four-on-three advantage.

The match turned into a battlefield, and the vestiges of war were apparent as bodies flew across both rings. But by the time referees finally broke Dunne out of his cage with a pair of bolt cutters, it was all-out bedlam.

A spear from Fish folded Rowe through a mounted table, and a springboard body splash by Hanson crushed O’Reilly through another table. In one of the most chaotic moments of the jaw-dropping melee, both teams locked into each other like Voltron to drop each other from the cage wall onto the canvas with a unified suplex. As the only competitor not involved in that ring-rattling maneuver, The One and Only worked his aerial magic, too, dropping from the skies with an incredible double-rotation moonsault from the top of the cage.

Aching in pain but energized by the fight, all eight Superstars rose to their feet and unleashed fisticuffs in the middle of the two rings as the NXT Universe erupted in excitement. The action only escalated from there, with The Raiders crushing Fish with the Fallout, and NXT Tag Team Champions Strong & O’Reilly cut down Rowe with a high-low combination.

As the carnage spread across the two rings, with Superstars sprawled around damaged and beaten, Dunne mustered up enough strength to drop Cole with a Bitter End, which was followed up by an out-of-nowhere 450 Splash by Ricochet. Both Dunne and Ricochet swung their nearly lifeless arms across Cole to score the victory, winning the war against The Undisputed ERA, and the two titleholders celebrated by ascending the WarGames structure and triumphantly lifting their championship into the air as TakeOver: WarGames II concluded.

NXT Live Digitals | Video Captures

Once again operating at full strength following the return of Bobby Fish, Undisputed ERA opened this week’s NXT by bragging that they embody the black-and-yellow brand. Adam Cole portrayed Roderick Strong & Kyle O’Reilly’s controversial NXT Tag Team Title defense against The War Raiders last week as a one-sided drubbing in the ERA’s favor (which most onlookers would be hard-pressed to agree with) and then alluded to himself once again challenging Ricochet for the NXT North American Championship.

That last part ruffled the feathers of EC3, who entered the arena and, after declaring that Cole didn’t deserve another title opportunity, accepted Cole’s challenge to a match on the spot. Despite the presence of Fish, Strong & O’Reilly at ringside, EC3 maintained a steady focus on Cole as he bounced The Panama City Playboy around the ring like a pinball. The other Undisputed ERA members interjected late in the contest, but EC3 summarily disposed of them. Cole hoped to capitalize on the distraction by going for the Last Shot, but The Top One Percent dodged the move and surprised Cole with a roll-up for the pin.

Though EC3 won the battle, the fight was just getting started. Furious over the outcome of the match, Undisputed ERA ambushed EC3 in a savage four-on-one barrage that culminated with Fish using a steel chair to bash EC3’s leg as it was draped over the edge of the entrance stage.

ORLANDO, Fla. — The Undisputed ERA’s Tag Team Championship reign lives on, thanks to a few shocks to the system. After evading The War Raiders’ crosshair for weeks, Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong had nowhere to run when it came time to defend their NXT Tag Team Titles. Of course, Hanson & Rowe had no problem relishing the moment. Over the course of 20 minutes, this contentious battle saw The War Raiders overpower their opponents with tandem attacks – including one instance where they flung Strong into O’Reilly via a ring-shaking back body drop. Yet, the matchup was far from one-sided as O’Reilly and Strong used their razor sharp in-ring IQ to challenge to Hanson & Rowe’s brute strength.

Midway through, the despicable pair zeroed in on Rowe’s left knee, exposing a weakness that was then tenderized with a series of punishing strikes and calculated submission holds. Still, the technical maneuvers weren’t enough to prevent the modern-day Vikings from steamrolling the rhythm of Strong & O’Reilly. Hanson nearly decapitated Strong with a clothesline, which prompted Adam Cole to appear, only to get tossed to the outside by Hanson.

Just The War Raiders seemed to be closing in on the titles after downing O’Reilly with the Fallout, a steel chair-wielding Bobby Fish arrived for the save, blasting Hanson & Rowe to drive the match into a disqualification. And just like that, Undisputed ERA are back at full force, much to the detriment of Hanson & Rowe.

NXT’s first-ever Champion vs. Champion Match between NXT North American titleholder Ricochet and WWE U.K. titleholder Pete Dunne lived up to its historic billing and then some, resulting in one of the most unbelievable matches ever contested at Full Sail Live. The only thing missing was a winner, a grave injustice for which the NXT Universe has Undisputed ERA to blame.

For more than 20 minutes, The One and Only and The BruiserWeight fought tooth and nail in the goal of becoming a dual champion. The mesmerizing bout moved from the mat (where Dunne would be expected to have the edge) to the air (Ricochet’s domain), but neither Superstar gave an inch. The one-time tag team partners showed no mercy as they exchanged vicious strikes throughout the match, whether it was Dunne clobbering Ricochet with forearm smashes or Ricochet raining down an axe kick on the U.K. Champion’s head.

Late in the match, after Dunne countered a springboard 450 Splash by locking Ricochet into a triangle hold, The One and Only reversed the submission into a ring-shaking powerbomb. Dunne, however, kept hold of Ricochet’s arm and cranked it into a keylock (bending Ricochet’s fingers for added leverage and to inflict further pain). Ricochet again countered, deadlifting Dunne into a brainbuster.
