I am of the opinion that the Undisputed Era is the best thing going in WWE right now. Every member of the UE can talk and is good in the ring and has some charisma. I think that if they go to the main roster without Vince breaking them up they can be the best stable WWE has seen since The Shield.With Adam Cole being a main event guy. Strong in the midcard and Fish and Kyle as a tag team they can be one of the best factions WWE has ever seen if booked well.

Now to my title statement. When I say "the answer to the BC" what I mean is constantly reinventing themselves. Adding new members,betraying current members,betraying leaders etc. Frankly we haven't seen a stable in the WWE that has lasted as long as the BC have lasted in a while. And I think it would be great to have the current members flourish for about a year or two and win some titles. And then add a main eventer to betray Adam Cole or have Adam betray someone already in the faction and add someone else. You get the point. This stable has huge potential imo. But I would not be suprised if Vince kills their momentum like he has done with many others.

I hope they come up to the main roster and add guys that they have history with like Owens and Zayn.

Just so long as they don’t make it try to be a copy of BC they should be fine

I think it should stay on NXT and be an NXT thing. Maybe fish or Reilly betray Adam Cole and have a huge fued in NXT and after UE wins the fued by perhaps adding another maineventer to lead the UE, have Cole go to the main roster. UE should live forever in NXT and be their legendary faction.

Even starting to spread in to the UK brand maybe

They have had an excellent 2018 that’s for sure. Should be a stable that stick together for a good 3-4 years for sure.

They're doing great and I hope they stay together for some time yet, but making them WWE's version (or even just NXT) of Bullet Club is a difficult and flawed idea. Whether you want to make them like a group that gains and loses members throughout time but remains relevant and in existence or you want to grow them big enough that you can create branches within the group and do something like the Civil War storyline that NJPW is doing right now, it'd be quite hard for WWE to pull that off. Especially in NXT as people come and go all the time so establishing one large group or several credible stables to work with whoever's in The Undisputed Era at the time takes a lot of work and concerted effort, something I don't think they're able to do in developmental for various reasons.

And in the main roster as we see, for some odd reason, stables aren't even considered for the most part but even when they were, they always managed to screw them up with bad booking. I don't recall one stable that lasted more than 2 successive years in this company, not one. Not Shield, not D-Generation X, not the Nation of Domination, not Nexus, nobody. Some of these broke up and reunited later on, but they always split up after a short while. 1999 was a bad year because they stuck everyone besides Rock and Austin into a stable and didn't have any direction with any of them before everything fell flat after a few months. Even the Invasion angle where they grouped all the WCW and ECW guys together in the Alliance and could have had a long running story with them only lasted about 6 months.

Unless you're going to have more than one or two actual stables that aren't just blatantly put together for a short program, stables are pointless. Even TUE right now is starting to run out of good stories to tell because they've already gone through almost everyone, told the same story several times with different targets, and are beginning to become a bit repetitive. Stables can and always will be one of the best things about pro wrestling, but only if done right and if they have a reason to exist. Their existence and relevance can only be prolonged by faction wars and feuding with other existing groups. If they're just teaming up against a random collection of wrestlers or using the numbers game against a single individual or a tag team, eventually you'll have seen that same scene a few times too many and it'll begin to look like it's just going in circles and that's when they begin to die. It's happened too many times in the past.

The Undisputed Era could be the WWE's version of Bullet Club, but if, and only if, they are ready to commit to the group with a long term direction for them if they want to go nWo/BC style and expand the faction so much that they could do rivalries within the group, or they need to be ready to create other groups that they could feud and keep serving them with a purpose and reason to be around. Otherwise, they'll just fall flat someday like every other previous stable they've done in at least the last 20 years and TUE will be history. Given their track record with these things, this is why I'm skeptical as to not only TUE, but any group in WWE ever achieving the success or notoriety that nWo and Bullet Club did in other promotions.

The Nation Of Domination was there from 1996 to 1998 & The Rock was a member of it from summer of 1997 to October 1998.

The main roster couldn't book for shit, I say enjoy them while they are on NxT because they are all fucked the moment they get to the main roster.
