With the return of WarGames less than two weeks away, Adam Cole looked to make Roderick Strong pay dearly for his decision to snub The Undisputed ERA before both Superstars enter the three-team fray at NXT TakeOver.

The Undisputed ERA’s master manipulator fired everything he had at Strong, wearing him down with submission holds, drilling him with hard strikes and even using the referee as a distraction. Yet, Strong refused to stay down no matter the attack that Cole launched his way. As Cole struggled to find new ways to batter his rival, Strong turned the tides, rattling Cole with a leaping knee to the face before downing him with a jaw-dropping backbreaker onto the top turnbuckle.

Sensing that their cocksure captain was in danger of suffering a clear-cut loss, Undisputed ERA members Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish ran to ringside and dragged an exhausted Strong out of the ring, prompting the referee to signal for the bell.

The fight, however, was far from over. Soon, they were joined by Strong’s partners for WarGames, The Authors of Pain, as well as the third WarGames squadron, SAnitY. A brief standoff gave way to an all-out brawl, with all nine Superstars throwing haymakers. The action spilled outside the ring, and Strong superplexed Cole from the top turnbuckle to the floor, wiping out all three teams in the process.

As the NXT Universe heartily chanted “NXT” and bodies lay strewn around the ring, it grew apparent that WarGames is the only structure dangerous enough to settle this three-way rivalry.

Introduction

Roderick Strong and Andrade “Cien” Almas are two men with plenty of drama surrounding them.
Strong has been curiously approached on two different occasions by The Undisputed ERA, first after losing a mighty battle against NXT Champion Drew McIntyre three weeks ago, then again last week when security footage caught Adam Cole, Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly handing Strong a shirt that he promptly handed back to them.

Could the NXT Universe see the talented trio show up again tonight? Are they scouting Strong for a spot in their group? Strong’s performance tonight against Almas could go a long way in deciding The Undisputed ERA’s next move with The Messiah of the Backbreaker.

Almas, meanwhile, has found himself in talks for a NXT Title opportunity of his own after his business manager, Zelina Vega, interrupted McIntyre’s interview last week, demanding a title match for her client.

As a result, the stakes are high for Almas as an impressive performance against Strong could make his case for an NXT Title opportunity.
