Having terrified The Undisputed ERA for weeks, Dexter Lumis will finally get his hands on Roderick Strong in the first-ever Strap Match in NXT history.

During Adam Cole’s NXT Title defense against The Velveteen Dream in a Backlot Brawl at NXT TakeOver: In Your House, Lumis had dumped Storm and Bobby Fish in the trunk of his car before driving off. The incident had traumatized Strong to such an extent that the former NXT North American Champion actually fled shortly after stepping in the ring with the Tortured Artist.

Now that Lumis and Strong are bound together by a strap, can the Undisputed ERA member overcome his deepest fears?
