In the last few weeks of NXT, one of the storylines that kept the fans of the WWE Universe in suspense the most was certainly that of the dissolution of the Undisputed Era, with its old leader, Adam Cole, who went to attack practically both of them.
his teammates remained in the ring, with Bobby Fish still away from the scene due to injury, with Cole hitting first Kyle O'Reilly and then Roderick Strong, putting an end to their years-long union. After also hitting the reigning absolute champion, Finn Balor, a heated rivalry has been born between the two that continued also in the weekly episode of the yellow roster show tonight, with the WWE that in fact also came to confirm a very great match for the next episode, between the two great faces of NXT.
Unlike what the fans of the WWE Universe expected, that is, that WWE was waiting for the next NXT TakeOver to stage a titled contest, valid for the absolute title of the Irishman, the management has blown everyone away in tonight's episode, going to announce a match valid for the NXT Championship just in seven days, or in the "normal" episode of NXT next week.
Finn Balor to defend NXT Championship next week
The first showdown between Finn Balor and Adam Cole will therefore be staged next Wednesday, with WWE trying in every way to spice up every single episode of their shows, including those of the main roster, which last Monday saw the victory of Bobby Lashley, for the first time in his career, of the WWE Championship.
With the advent of the WWE Network on Peacock TV and the approach to the most anticipated PPV of the year, Wrestlemania, WWE does not want to leave anything to chance and tries to put as much meat on the fire as possible, so as to be able to receive as much feedback as possible from fans still connected only from home, to follow his live shows.
The group's dissolution occurred after Cole attacked both O'Reilly and Balor at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day. That left Strong in the middle of the fracas, and he was attacked by Cole last week. Next week's show is set to be a huge one as Io Shirai is also scheduled to defend the NXT Women's Championship against Toni Storm.
That match was booked last week after Storm essentially goaded the Genius of the Sky into another shot. Both matches feature two sets of opponents that have fought each other a lot over the last few years. For that reason, something we haven't seen already could come into play.
Storm beat Shirai in the finals of a Mae Young Classic. Shirai then beat both Storm and Mercedes Martinez in a triple threat at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day, but pinned the latter.
