Undisputed Era vs. Team McAfee set for NXT TakeOver: WarGames


The Undisputed Era are officially set to face off with Pat McAfee, Pete Dunne, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch in WarGames.

After tonight's episode of NXT went off the air, WWE uploaded a video with NXT general manager William Regal announcing that Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish) will face McAfee, Dunne, Lorcan & Burch in a WarGames match at NXT TakeOver: WarGames next month. The event is taking place on Sunday, December 6.

Tonight's NXT ended with Undisputed Era making their return and brawling with McAfee, Dunne, Lorcan, and Burch. All four members of Undisputed Era had been attacked by McAfee and his associates in recent weeks.

In the main event segment of tonight's NXT episode, NXT Champion Finn Balor made his return for the first time since undergoing surgery for a broken jaw last month. McAfee, Dunne, Lorcan, and Burch interrupted Balor and surrounded him. Balor said it's easy for the mice to play while the cat's away, but the cat is back and look what he's just dragged in. The lights then went out and Undisputed Era appeared. They brawled with McAfee, Dunne, Lorcan, and Burch as the show went off the air.

WarGames will be McAfee's second-ever professional wrestling match. The former All-Pro NFL punter made his in-ring debut in a loss to Cole at NXT TakeOver XXX this August.

Undisputed Era have been part of every men's WarGames match that has taken place in NXT. TakeOver: WarGames has been held annually since 2017.

This is the second WarGames match that's been announced for next month's TakeOver event. Shotzi Blackheart and Candice LeRae will be the captains of the two teams in this year's women's WarGames match.
