Roderick Strong came in on the latest episode of WWE NXT and verbal attacker Balor, and not Cole, for being the end of Undisputed Era. He believes that everything was fine until the Irishman entered the faction.

Not willing to hear any more, Balor made his way to the ring and called out Adam Cole himself. ‘The Cat’ wanted to face him but Cole was nowhere to be seen. 

Enraged, Balor openly challenged the former NXT Champion to a fight with his own title on the line as a means to bring him out. Balor has split a vein and Cole will get the scent of blood soon. 

Finn Balor vs Adam Cole is the biggest fight NXT could have

To prove a point he challenged Roderick Strong as well. Although, this is just a smokescreen for the things to come next week on NXT. Finn Balor vs Adam Cole is a match that has never failed to disappoint and won’t start now. 

The last time these two met, the NXT Championship was up for grabs. Karrion Kross, the new Champion, was forced to relinquish it due to an upsetting injury, which left the title open.
