Undisputed ERA’s golden prophecy hinges on Roderick Strong
Originally Posted by WWE
The Undisputed ERA began 2019 by guaranteeing they’d be “draped in championship gold” within the year. This week, Roderick Strong looks to finally fulfill that prophecy when he challenges the eccentric and electrifying Velveteen Dream for the NXT North American Title, live on USA Network.
With Adam Cole holding court as NXT Champion and Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly recently winning the NXT Tag Team Title, Strong remains the only member of The Undisputed ERA without a championship. After long campaigning for a one-on-one title bout with Dream, The Messiah of the Backbreaker went to extreme measures to provoke the champion into accepting, setting Dream’s signature purple couch ablaze on the Sept. 4 edition of NXT.
The tactic worked in getting the champion’s attention, but will Strong regret his decision when he enters the ring against an incensed Velveteen Dream? Or will the vertebrae-smashing Superstar bring The Undisputed ERA’s prophecy to fruition?
Fatal 4-Way Match to decide Shayna Baszler’s next challenger
The acclaimed NXT Women’s division will take the spotlight when Mia Yim, Candice LeRae, Io Shirai and Bianca Belair clash in a Fatal 4-Way Match to determine the top contender to Shayna Baszler’s NXT Women’s Title.
The high-stakes match not only carries title implications, but it also brims with personal animosity. Yim and Belair are familiar foes, having gone to war in a best-of-three series earlier this year. The cagey Head Baddie in Charge triumphed by pinning Belair twice, a feat that no other Superstar has accomplished against The EST of NXT.
LeRae and Shirai have been at each other’s throats ever since The Genius of the Sky revealed her true colors and callously betrayed LeRae in June. Their grudge match at TakeOver: Toronto, which Shirai won, did little to cool tempers, as LeRae and Shirai’s recent run-ins have shown.
Which Superstar will navigate the minefield, outwit the competition and stake a claim for a future title match with The Queen of Spades?

No rules, no disqualifications: Matt Riddle and Killian Dain prepare for a Street Fight
After a summer of barbaric sneak attacks and chaotic brawls, Matt Riddle and Killian Dain look to settle the score in a lawless Street Fight this week on NXT.
Since their rivalry began, The Original Bro and The Northern Ireland Nightmare have crashed through the entrance stage, rendered tables to toothpicks and brutalized each other with steel stairs. Dain won their only official one-on-one match by viciously targeting Riddle’s already-injured ribs, but despite the beating, Riddle wanted more of The Beast of Belfast after the bell. Their melee continued outside the arena after NXT went off the air, only ending when Dain crushed Riddle beneath a steel ladder.
With it now abundantly clear that a standard match cannot contain the mayhem, the sports-entertainment world is in for a free-for-all of epic proportions when two of NXT’s all-time toughest Superstars collide in a Street Fight on the second hour of NXT, streaming exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network.
Io should win, regardless of alignments. I like Bianca, but it's Io's time right now, not her, though Io vs. Bianca in the future can be great. The only other thing I would be happy with is some kind of draw with Io and Candice.
And I expect TUE to be holding all the gold before the night is over.
Yep, I'm expecting Roderick Strong to beat Velveteen Dream for the NXT North American title so that every member of Undisputed Era end up being draped in gold
Dream vs Strong should be a good match though
