It became very clear last night on WWE NXT that two members of The Undisputed Era are being positioned as babyfaces.
PWInsider is reporting that the plan is for Kyle O’Reilly to shift into a full-fledged babyface role going forward. Also, the match between Adam Cole and Austin Theory from last night was supposed to be the official start of Cole’s baby turn. The tease started a few weeks ago when he lost to Finn Balor and there were subtle teases of a turn during his feud with Pat McAfee.
However, Bobby Fish and Roderick Strong are going to remain as heels, which means that there is a split coming within the group. WWE has been planting a split in recent weeks with O’Reilly trying to be the calming voice of reason during Fish and Strong’s heelish attacks.
Below is the face-to-face segment between O’Reilly and Fish. Shawn Michaels put him over as the best-kept secret in NXT.
