In some of the biggest news to hit NXT in some time, Adam Cole signed after his stint in Ring of Honor (ROH) and made his way to NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III where he teamed with Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly. Upon their debut, the trio took out the newly crowned champion Drew McIntyre and emphatically announced their arrival.
Since that time, NXT fans learned the group led by Cole will be known as "The Undisputed Era" and at a recent NXT television taping, it appears the trio added a fourth member.
For those that don't like spoilers, we urge you not to continue on.
Wrestlingin.com reports that at the NXT tapings set to air on Oct. 4m 2017, Peyton Royce earned a spot in a Fatal 4-Way match for the vacant NXT Women's Title at Takeover: Houston on Nov. 18, 2017. Royce defeated Nikki Cross and Liv Morgan in a Triple Threat Match. The fact that Royce won the match is not the most interesting news to come out of that taping, however. It was how she won that caught most people's attention.
Royce earned her victory thanks to interference from Mae Young Classic competitor Taynara Conti who was sent to the ring by none other than Adam Cole and the rest of The Undisputed Era.
NXT is going all-in on "The Undisputed Era" and Cole has been immediately thrust into the main event scene. Adding another member to his faction means this stable could easily overtake every aspect of the promotion. From NXT Champion to tag team champs in O'Reilly and Fish, to now having a contender for the NXT Women's Championship in Taynara Conti.
Without Asuka in the picture, the NXT Women's Division is wide open. NXT could very quickly become the Undisputed Era show and for Conti, she's clearly been labeled as someone the WWE has bigger plans for.
