Adam Cole made a name for himself in Ring of Honor, and it was rumored for months that he was WWE bound. The former ROH World Champion finally made his big debut at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III when he attacked the new NXT Champion Drew McIntyre, and he got a lot of people talking.
Cole has aligned himself with former ROH stars Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish to form a new stable called The Undisputed Era, and it looks like they’re going to be a force to be reckoned with for months to come in NXT. Now Adam Cole’s NXT in-ring debut has officially been confirmed, as WWE has announced that he will face Eric Young on next week’s episode.

The number one contender for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, Charlotte Flair, recently spoke to 107.7 The Bone with Baby Huey & Bimbo Jimbo and she opened up about her first title win on the main roster. Charlotte defeated Nikki Bella to win the title in 2015, but during the interview she said that she didn’t feel ready.
“I’ve actually come into my own on the main roster. A lot of people find themselves in NXT. I think I found myself on the main roster…I have grown into this larger than life Queen Charlotte character. So, when I won the Divas title I obviously had not even evolved into what I am today. I just remember watching Nikki come through the curtain I did not feel ready. I was nervous. Here I was this generic baby face, and I just could not understand why I could not get the audience to relate to me. So, going through that and turning into a bad guy when I won the title at Wrestlemania 32 I did feel ready then.”
