What a night for The Undisputed Era at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans earlier this month during WWE WrestleMania Week.
Leader and co-founder Adam Cole "Bay Bay" won the debuting NXT North American Title.

Then, later in the show, he and stablemate Kyle O'Reilly retained the NXT Tag Team Titles while also winning the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Trophy, thanks to newest Undisputed Era member Roderick Strong, who stunned everyone by turning TUE in this triple threat tag match.

Strong fits nicely with The Undisputed Era.
And don't count out the injured Bobby Fish. He's keeping a watchful eye and a handy crutch as The Undisputed Era is taking over NXT everywhere., including the Havert L. Fenn Center in Fort Pierce.
NXT will make its regular house call to the Havert L. Fenn Center on Saturday. Cole, who learned the WWE way at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, talks NXT.

It's Adam Cole "Bay Bay"
When I think of a consummate professional — true to the business, true to the company, a marque representative of the brand as a champion in the ring and away from it — John Cena, Cody Rhodes and this superstar comes to mind, Bay-Bay, Adam Cole.
Cole discusses the formation of The Undisputed Era in NXT, creating the name Undisputed Era and adding the catch phrase "Bay Bay," which fans made even bigger.

Cole is just 28-years-old, but he's already accomplished quite a bit and has handled it very well, mature beyond his years.
He has made history several times at various levels with various companies, including in Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla and most recently WWE's NXT.
Cole is the first double champion in NXT, achieving that mark at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans during WrestleMania Week.
Cole discusses NXT TakeOver: New Orleans, being one-fourth of the NXT Tag Team Champs using Freebird Rules, meeting Michael PS Hayes, and the possibility of obtaining more tag belts for the The Undisputed Era foursome. He also notes his personal dentist (who he highly recommends) and the movie "Goundhog Day," starring Bill Murray in the town Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, which Cole now has close ties.
