As seen on Night Two Of NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver, Adam Cole faced off against Kyle O’Reilly in an unsanctioned match. The match was brutal from start to finish as both competitors put their bodies on the line and come out the victor.

In the end, O’Reilly got the win after he sandwiched Cole between his knee wrapped in a metal chain and a steel chair. Due to this, many fans have been wondering what is next for Adam Cole now that he lost the feud.

While speaking to Michael Morales of Lucha Libre Online, Triple H addressed Adam Cole’s future in NXT after his huge loss. Triple H stated that it’s simply a chapter in his story and it is unlikely to be the end.

“One loss and you’re out. It’s a funny thing, when you succeed here and you do really well here for a fairly long period of time, there are moments in time where you’re telling me stories and then you know something definitive happens like tonight and people think: ‘That’s the end of it. Certainly that’s the end of the book. That’s the end of the chapter. He has to move on’.

That’s not that case at all. You know, if that were the case then, half this roster would be leaving tonight. It’s not the case at all. It’s a chapter in the story. It’s a chapter in The Saga that they’re telling. Kyle O’Reilly proving himself against the man that said he was the leader of the Undisputed Era and was just dragging them all along and we’re just his his lackeys. Proving that he’s not a lackey anymore. So if I’m Adam Cole, I can’t imagine that sits very well with him. So I would imagine that’s not the end of the story”.

Shawn Michaels then added to what Triple H said stating that O’Reilly is currently in the top spot that Adam is in.

“Yeah, this is right. This is taking Kyle O’Reilly to the next level. I think everybody would agree that Adam Cole has simply been in the top level for over a year here now. I think now Kyle O’Reilly has put himself on that same spot that was Adam Cole. I can’t see that stopping now”.

We will have to see what is next in store the former leader of The Undisputed Era, now that his feud with Kyle O’Reilly has seemingly ended.
