WWE finally made the call to split up the Undisputed Era in NXT. That stable had a great following and plenty of fans were sad to see them break up. They were once covered in gold. but everything good must come to an end eventually.
While speaking to Inside The Ropes, Adam Cole discussed WWE’s process of splitting up the stable. He said it “happened so fast” and they were not preparing for a breakup at all. Now all four members of the stable are off in their own directions.
“It was [a conflicting decision]. I had been literally attached at the hip to Kyle [O’Reilly], Bobby [Fish], and [Roderick Strong] my entire run in NXT. The moment I debuted I was standing beside Kyle and Bobby. Everything I had known about my time in NXT was Undisputed Era. So, it’s scary at the idea of going ‘Okay, we’re going to go in a different direction’.”
“Also, it happened so fast. It wasn’t like this thing that we were preparing for. It’s something that kind of fell into our laps and [t] was like ‘Okay, this is where we’re going’. [There was] very little time to process it, very little time to think about it. But looking at it now, I absolutely think it was the right call.”
“It’s never going to feel, especially when you have the chemistry that myself, Kyle, [Roderick], and Bobby had, it’s never going to feel like the perfect time. However, I do think that development wise for all of us individually, it’s been really, really important to kind of go into that direction. I had the time of my life in The Undisputed Era, I really, really did. But I do think it was a good call.”
We will have to see what happens in this situation, because another WWE Draft coming up could mean that a members of the Undisputed Era could find themselves on different brands for the first time in WWE. This is a very interesting situation, but the Undisputed Era will certainly remain friends behind the scenes.
