WWE NXT Undisputed Era 6-19-19

The Undisputed Era open the show, with Adam Cole as NXT Champion for the first time. Cole says this is the start of them having all the titles. They started at the top and attacked the top guy and it worked. They think this is how the show should start every week, so they run the NXT intro video, but edited with only clips of the Undisputed Era. Kyle O’Reilly says he put that together last night. They promise to have all the titles and power by the end of 2019. Nobody will be able to touch them, not even William Regal or Triple H. They get interrupted by the arrival of the Velveteen Dream. He says that he’d like to touch Adam. He says Cole looks good with the title, but it would look better paired with his North American Title. Roderick Strong shouts down Dream, saying he doesn’t deserve to be in their presence. Out comes Matt Riddle, asking how hard he hit Strong at TakeOver. He reminds us that he beat Strong and Cole in recent weeks. Cole says Riddle is jealous that he’s held every title in NXT and the rest of the UE have also held gold, while he’s dropped the ball in title matches. Cole tells him to go back to writing reviews on attitude era wrestlers online. That era is the past and everyone is just living in the current undisputed era. That brings out Tyler Breeze to a huge pop. He says he was talking to Regal backstage. He doesn’t care what’s undisputed, but they’re taking credit for a building a brand that he helped make before they were even in the company. An “OG” chant starts. Regal took Breeze’s suggestion that it will be himself, Riddle, and Dream against any three UE members.

NEXT WEEK ~ Io Shirai faces Shayna Baszler for the NXT Women’s Title match in a Steel Cage.

A video package airs recapping the Shirai/Baszler feud.

Damian Priest vs. Raul Mendoza

Priest opens with a huge kick that knocks Raul down. Forearm follows a corner whip. Peist smiles while in control. Mendoza with some right hands. Priest catches one, spins him around, ear clap, and forearm. I miss a moment but come back to see Mendoza with some athleticism and a series of kicks. Priest sends him to the apron but Mendoza walks the top rope and hits a dropkick. Priest is sent outside, where he is pissed. he catches a diving Mendoza and chokeslams him on the apron. Huge spinning boot and rolling cutter end it.

Backstage, William Regal has an announcement. With so much talent in the Performance Center, he’s decided to run asingle elimination tournament called the NXT Breakout Tournament.

The participants include Jordan Myles (formerly ACH), BOA, Cameron Grimes (Trevor Lee), Isaiah “Swerve” Scott (Shane Strickland), Dexter Lumis (Sam Shaw), Bronson Reed (Jonah Rock), Angel Garza (Humberto Garza) and Joaquin Wilde (DJ Z).
