As we return from commercial break, McAfee has taken over the ring and has a mic. “You are looking at the greatest four men to ever come together in the history of the wrestling business. We run NXT now, and theres no question about it. Now, the thing about us, that makes us different, is we’re not a bunch of scumbags.” McAfee states, adding they are “men of class.” McAfee says they should pay tribute to the former group that ran NXT, and that is Undisputed.
McAfee says they will hang a banner for them, and take a trip down memory lane. In 2017, this group, Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly, Moustache Stooge.. Bobby Fish. They took over NXT. They have their stupid hand signal, they won a bunch, they won over these stupid, stupid, stupid fans. They then needed another member, but what did they do Pete Dunne? Roderick Strong said you have to trust the right people in this business, I taught Kyle O’Reilly the same lesson. McAfee notes Pete Dunne came back ripped, pointing to his guns.
McAfee continues on talking about how NXT changed their business philosophy to make Undisputed Era look like the best thing since sliced bread. Oney says, “What about us Danny?” Danny responds, “What about us Oney? 30 years combined wrestling experience, and they said we would NEVER be on the level of UA, but look at us now.” McAfee says all that changed with him, then explains everything that’s happened since TakeOver 30. McAfee says putting this group together was the easiest thing he’s done in his entire life. “Now it’s time to honor the past, while recognizing the future is much, much better.” They then say they are raising the banner up into the rafters, then never discussing them again.
McAfee says that he thinks it is a good idea, but they are a democracy, so they should vote. “If you’re in favor of raising it, say “Aye”. If you would rather put it in the trash, say “Aye”. Everyone responds. A trash can is brought into the ring. “Do you want to do the honors?” McAfee says, “I hold this banner in my hand to show as a sign of something that should never have existed.”
Burch gets out lighter fluid and a lighter. McAfee tosses the banner in the garbage can and Dunne pours lighter fluid into the can. Dunne lights his lighter and tosses it into the trash, starting a fire. McAfee says, “We’re the greatest, you suck. Cheers.” And all four of them leave the ring, walking to the back.
