undisputed era

At NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III, Drew McIntyre defeated Bobby Roode to win the NXT Championship, and then he was attacked by Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish. Since then Cole, O’Reilly and Fish have been wreaking havoc in NXT, and they’re now known as The Undisputed Era.

Coming up with a good stable name isn’t as easy as it sounds, but the name certainly seems to fit the group. The Undisputed Era recently spoke to WWE.com about their quest to dominate NXT, and they explained the origin of their name.

COLE: “When you say the word “undisputed,” what do you think of? You think of something that is untouchable, undeniable. Myself, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly are all of those things. We’ve proven before we got here that we are one in a million, and we’ll do it again here in NXT. Also, people talk about the different eras in wrestling — The Golden Era, The Attitude Era, The Reality Era. This is our era; it’s our time to show the world who runs this sport.”

O’REILLY: “The Undisputed ERA isn’t just a cute name that’s meant to sell a bunch of T-shirts. It’s our mantra. It’s our way of life. Our success is a direct result of the effort and dominance that we put forth inside the squared circle. We are undisputed. This is our era.”

Adam Cole also explained why NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III was the perfect place for the group to make a statement.

ADAM COLE: “Here’s the deal. You don’t make a statement unless you make noise. We knew that what we were doing was going to cause a lot of ruckus. We knew it would get people talking. And that’s exactly what we wanted. The only way you make a name for yourself in this sport is to make a statement, a loud statement, and that’s exactly what we did at TakeOver: Brooklyn.”
