6/19/19 WWE NXT Recap
The opening credits roll. Beth Phoenix, Mauro Ranallo, and Nigel McGuinness are on commentary.
The Undisputed Era’s music hits and the group makes their way to the ring. Adam Cole says he told us so when he said the Undisputed Era would be draped in gold in 2019. He says the NXT Championship is the beginning of fulfilling that prophecy. Cole says they are going to remake the NXT Universe into an undisputed image. He then shows a new opening video for NXT, which just has the Undisputed Era and no one else in it and says that’s how the show should start every week. Kyle O’Reilly says it’s not a big deal and just something he threw together. Cole says they run the place because they have all the power. He tells The Velveteen Dream and The Street Profits to shine their titles, because he wants them to be nice and pretty for Roderick Strong, O’Reilly, and Bobby Fish. He says no one will be able to touch them when they have all the gold.
Dream’s music hits and he comes to the stage. Dream says he would like to touch Cole and says it’s adorable that he thinks it is the Undisputed Era that has caused NXT to rise to new heights. Dream says it’s really because of him. Dream says Cole looks good with the gold, but it would look even better paired with his NXT North American Championship. Strong tells Dream to dream on when it comes to holding the NXT Championship. Matt Riddle’s music hits and he joins Dream on the ramp. Riddle asks Strong how hard he hit Strong at TakeOver. Riddle says he beat Strong, and he beat Cole as well. Cole says Riddle just runs his mouth about something he knows nothing about and tells him to shut up. Cole says Riddle is jealous because he has dropped the ball on every championship shot he has gotten in NXT. Cole tells Riddle to go back to writing online reviews for wrestlers from the Attitude Era. Cole says that era is over and Riddle’s era will never come. Cole says everyone is living in the Undisputed Era, but Tyler Breeze’s music hits and he comes to the stage.
Breeze says he was talking to Mr. Regal backstage and he doesn’t care what’s undisputed and he doesn’t care who is better looking, even though it’s him. Breeze says he does care about the Era trying to take credit for NXT since he built it before any of them were even there. Breeze says he will team up with Dream and Riddle to take on any three Era members in tonight’s main event.
Next week, Shayna Baszler will defend the NXT Women’s Championship against Io Shirai in a Steel Cage Match. A video recap of the feud is then shown.
