WWE NXT Tag Team Champions Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish, known as The Undisputed Era with Adam Cole, recently spoke with Byron Saxton for a WWE website interview. The full interview is at this link and below are highlights:

Fish on their success before WWE:

“We’ve been the standard in tag team wrestling since November 2012. Our preparation is about precision, timing, sharpening our in-ring ability to its finest edge possible, its science. From there, we game-plan; each team is a new puzzle for sorting, calculating each move, complete with bad intent. Matches are won before the bell rings. First, we let you know the when, where, why and how — the verbal. Then comes the mental, the inevitability of what’s about to happen to you. And finally, the physical, when we put you out of your misery.”

O’Reilly on their chemistry:

“Our team chemistry is something unlike anything else on this planet. Bobby knows what I’m planning to do before I do sometimes. I think that we have such a relentless, unorthodox style, and we have designed a new system of attacking and defending that is very difficult to figure out and prepare for.”

Fish on The Undisputed Era conquering NXT:

“When you delivered at the level Kyle, Cole and I are accustomed to, there are no surprises. It’s a simple ‘if A, then B’ system. The process is in the work. Our work is never left unfinished; it’s always looked after, and, therefore, success follows us like a lost dog searching for a home. Come one, come all. The variety of challenge ensures the entertainment of those who follow our history. Watch as time and time again we prove there is no team walking this planet who can operate on our level. We are NXT, and this is our era!”

Former ROH World Champion Kyle O’Reilly made his WWE debut at the NXT tapings on Wednesday night at Full Sail University.

Facing Aleister Black in singles action, the Canadian didn’t undergo a name change (ironically unlike his opponent, who was switched from Tommy End upon signing a WWE contract) and was simply billed as Kyle O’Reilly. There was even a huge graphic emblazoned on the tron to confirm the O’Reilly name is here to stay.

There had been rumours that O’Reilly was set to sign with WWE for a few months, but this was his first appearance for the company. His NXT debut comes hot on the heels of his former tag-team partner Bobby Fish also losing to Black on TV, so WWE may be tempted to use the pair as a team.

Collectively known as reDRagon, Fish and O’Reilly held the ROH Tag-Team Titles on 3 separate occasions and are 2-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Champs. In addition, the team also won the 2014 Super Junior Tag-Team Tournament in NJPW.

O’Reilly’s first match for WWE is scheduled to air on the August 2 episode of NXT.
