Drake keeps picking fights with The Undisputed Era, Killian Dain is only involved because he doesn't like them either. But he also doesn't like Drake, and takes exception to him continually trying to act like they're friends or allies.

There's the germ of a story in there, but what they're presenting is basically,"Drake is an idiot loser dumbass" and given how badly they've booked him before AND the fact he was fired and they turned his real life emotional trauma into a storyline to try and make THEMSELVES look like heroes just makes the whole thing seem really hosed up.

Killian Dain hates everyone and Drake Maverick is a scrappy fool who keeps getting beaten up and coming back for more.

O'Reilly is still in Undisputed Era, he's just for parking lot safety and wants no fighting in them.

Gauntlet Elimination Match is a Royal Rumble with pins and submissions instead of being over the top rope. Did ROH do something similar in the past?

NXT Results 9/16:
  • Killian Dain told Drake Maverick backstage that he never agreed to be in a tag team and wouldn't join him in their scheduled match against The Undisputed Era.
  • Killian Dain & Drake Maverick defeated The Undisputed Era by DQ. Dain only came out when William Regal yelled at him backstage. Bobby Fish hit Dain with a chair and he and Roderick Strong ran away. Killian Dain knocked Maverick out with a punch.

Would you say that Keith Lee is a bad hombre?

In all seriousness that video is a little disturbing. Not because of OMG Brutal damage but it feels like I'm watching some alt right promo video. Well its WWE so an alt right guy with absolutely no knowledge how to film.... or edit.... or hold a camera... or basic shot setup. Even when they are simply talking the camera sways left and right. I feel like I'm in high school and my teacher should yell at me for not holding the bloody cam steady.

I was trying to figure out how Keith Lee got into the ring and 5 feet away from Drew and the announcer without them noticing.

Yeah I like it because it's a throwback to that. When I was little and went to see some shows they had a little stage off to the side that they would give interviews on. So it reminds me of that.

Io vs Shotzi was very good. Man Shotzi SUCKED like eight months ago, she has gotten pretty good.

Rest of the show was mostly good wrestling with questionable booking, per usual. KUSHIDA going serious is probably wise though because he's too good for the comedy gimmick they will stick him with if Vince ever sees his entrance.

Iím still a bit unsettled that the tall and very white good guy sucker punched Lee and during the beat down (which Drew started) you got a focus on Leeís BLM shirt then the refs come out and first go to stop the ďout of controlĒ Lee. I donít think this is was a directive.... just following the natural wwe way of doing things.
