NXT Takeover 31: Finn Balor Retains NXT Championship, Ridge Holland “Drops Off” Adam Cole

Kyle O’Reilly put on the match of his life against Finn Balor for the NXT Championship, but on this occasion, the former Tag Team Champion came up short.

It was the events following his loss that became the biggest talking points of the show since it’s now clear that Undisputed Era are babyfaces in NXT.

O’Reilly, Bobby Fish, and Roderick Strong were still coming to terms with the loss when Ridge Holland appeared and “dropped” Adam Cole off at ringside with a ripped shirt and obvious black eye.

Finn Balor was still in the ring and even he looked confused as the former NXT Champion lay at ringside looking for medical staff to make their way to him.

Cole was watching tonight’s main event with interest since he believed that it was O’Reilly’s turn in the spotlight but this latest twist could bring the Undisputed Era closer together when recent rumors have dictated that the group were set to be torn apart.
