Ridge Holland has apparently started a new feud with Adam Cole and / or The Undisputed Era.
Tonight’s NXT “Takeover: 31” main event saw NXT Champion Finn Balor retain his title over Kyle O’Reilly in a hard-fought back & forth match. The post-match angle saw champion and challenger show each other respect as they stood together in the middle of the ring.
Ridge Holland feuding with Adam Cole is a possibility, as the former UK rugby player suddenly appeared at ringside on the other side of the barrier, with an unconscious Adam Cole laid out over his shoulder.
Holland stared back at the ring until Balor and O’Reilly stared back at him. Holland then dumped Cole over the barrier, to the floor at ringside. Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish then ran down to the ring but Holland disappeared. Takeover went off the air with a furious Undisputed Era, and Balor, tending to Cole at ringside.
Back in August, we noted that Ridge Holland is being praised by people in the company because of his potential to become the “next big thing”, as Vince McMahon feels that now is the time to start building younger stars.
It was recently reported that WWE had plans to split The Undisputed Era up. You can click here for the report on those plans. Stay tuned for updates.
