ORLANDO, Fla. — Roderick Strong is done fighting the good fight alone. In fact, he might be done fighting the good fight altogether, now that he’s joined forces with NXT’s most opportunistic unit, Undisputed ERA.
The Messiah of the Backbreaker admitted as much during the controversial quartet’s first appearance on NXT since their triumphs at TakeOver: New Orleans, where the group not only retained the NXT Tag Team Titles (thanks to Strong’s betrayal of partner Pete Dunne), but also added a new accolade in the form of Adam Cole’s NXT North American Title. Strong, who wore one of the NXT Tag Team Titles and was introduced as a champion alongside Kyle O’Reilly, said he experienced an epiphany in The Big Easy, as he realized the ERA members always had each other’s backs and suggested The BruiserWeight only cared about his WWE U.K. Championship.
Bobby Fish bragged about the ERA’s ability to overcome the odds, no matter how unfavorable, and O’Reilly said the faction will leave the rest of NXT in the dust. To reinforce that point, Cole then sent his teammates to the locker room, vowing to go it alone in his first NXT North American Title defense on WWE Network against Oney Lorcan.
