In promos since he was revealed as the Devil, Adam Cole has been singing a song that will sound familiar to fans who followed his WWE NXT run. Just as he prophesied for Undisputed ERA, Cole sees his Undisputed Kingdom crew draped in gold.
Until now — outside of the Ring of Honor Tag belts Matt Taven & Michael Bennett won when they were still masked goons (as opposed to the unmasked goons they now play... I kid, I kid) — it’s all been talk. And, well, it’s still all just talk. But that talk is leading to at least one match, as Roderick Strong challenged Orange Cassidy for the International title.
Fighting champ OC wanted to do it last night (Jan. 17), right there in North Charleston, South Carolina. Roddy didn’t, instead suggesting Mar. 4 in Greensboro, North Carolina, aka Revolution.
That’s not official yet, but it’s more concrete than whatever Cole has planned for Wardlow. They’re talking World championship, and the big man seems to be a little more on board with the “property of Undisputed Kingdom” plan his leader is laying out than he has been in the past. But we’ve seen no signs of Wardlow joining Swerve Strickland and Hangman Page in the chase for a shot at Samoa Joe, so... cool promo, bros?
It’s not exactly the red hot build you’d hope for coming out of the Devil drama, but we suppose that’s what you get when the two central figures from that program (Cole & MJF) are both injured.
