WWE

NXT (2017-present)

On the July 12, 2017, episode of NXT, Fish made his NXT debut, losing to Aleister Black. On the August 2 NXT, O'Reilly made his NXT debut, also losing to Black. At NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III on August 19, Fish and O'Reilly debuted as a team, attacking the newly crowned NXT Tag Team Champions, Sanity (Alexander Wolfe and Eric Young), as well as their opponents for the night, The Authors of Pain. Later that night, the two aligned themselves with Adam Cole and attacked newly crowned NXT Champion Drew McIntyre.[37] The following month, the trio of Cole, Fish and O'Reilly was officially dubbed "The Undisputed Era".[38]

At NXT TakeOver: WarGames, the Undisputed Era defeated Sanity and The Authors of Pain and Roderick Strong in a WarGames match, the first of its kind in 20 years. On the December 20 episode of NXT, (taped on November 29), Fish and O'Reilly defeated Sanity (Eric Young and Killian Dain) to capture the NXT Tag Team Championship, marking their first title win in WWE. The following week, the Undisputed Era cost Aleister Black a number one contender's fatal-four way match for the NXT Championship, thus beginning a feud with Black. On the January 10, 2018 episode of NXT, Fish and O'Reilly were scheduled to defend their titles against Sanity in a rematch, but assaulted them along with Cole backstage, rendering them unable to compete. Later that night, they were forced to defend their championships against Black and Roderick Strong by NXT general manager William Regal, and successfully retained their titles after Cole interfered and distracted Black. After the match, they attacked Black.[39] At NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia, The Undisputed Era defeated The Authors of Pain to retain the titles. On March 4, Fish suffered a torn ACL and torn MCL in his left knee at an NXT live event, forcing him to vacate his half of the NXT Tag Team Championship. He later underwent surgery and would be out of action for six months.[40] Cole replaced Fish following his injury and the Undisputed Era's reign would continue due to the Freebird Rule.

O'Reilly and Cole successfully defended the NXT Tag Team Championships at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans against the Authors of Pain and Roderick Strong and Pete Dunne. At the end of the match, Strong turned on his partner Dunne, and joined The Undisputed Era, turning heel (for the first time in WWE) in the process.[41] The next morning at WrestleMania Axxess, Strong teamed with O'Reilly to defend the NXT Tag Team Championships, making him a champion via the Freebird Rule. O'Reilly and Strong would later lose their titles to Moustache Mountain (Tyler Bate and Trent Seven). [42]
