Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole’s rivalry will come to a head at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver.
After multiple attempts of the two trying to get to one another over the past several weeks, NXT on-screen GM William Regal sat both former Undisputed ERA members down for a contract signing so that they can compete on night two of TakeOver: Stand & Deliver in an Unsanctioned match.
