However, the most shocking moment came post the final bell. It would have taken a massive moment to top such a beautiful match, and NXT delivered that.

The United Kingdom must’ve been beaming watching Pete Dunne and Finn Balor kill it at Takeover: Vengeance Day. Dunne chomped at Balor’s fingers till the champion lost feeling in his extremities. A perfect fusion of submission holds and ground and pound striking, Dunne looked like he might come away with the title.

Unfortunately for the young Brit, he did not put Balor out for good. Despite the heavy onslaught, Balor rose to the occasion and beat Dunne with the Coup de grâce and the 1916 DDT. With this win, Balor’s current reign looks set to exceed his previous reign.

What is Adam Cole up to?

After the match, Oney Lorcan, Danny Burch, and Pete Dunne attacked Finn Balor. The Undisputed Era came out to save Balor from a vicious assault, displaying a type of brotherhood that is uncommon in NXT.

O’Reilly and the NXT Champion stood eye-to-eye with Cole and Roderick Strong looking on.

As the Undisputed Era posed with the champion, Cole struck Balor with a super-kick! O’Reilly looked at Cole in disbelief and questioned his actions. An irate Cole super-kicked his stablemate in the face! Is this a full-blown heel turn? Is the Undisputed Era no more?

If this was the end of the Undisputed Era, it seemed like a fitting way to go out. Cole can cite that he was jealous of the spotlight on O’Reilly and Balor and took matters into his own hands.

For a prizefighter like Cole, risking friendship and brotherhood for championship gold is not surprising. A certain Bullet Club can relate to this problem.

This makes the title picture more crowded, which works in NXT’s favour. If Edge won’t challenge for the NXT Championship at WrestleMania, a match involving Balor, Cole and O’Reilly at WrestleMania weekend would be wonderful.
