Velveteen Dream and Roderick Strong took each other on in a Steel Cage match to close out tonight’s episode of NXT. While Dream looked poised to win at certain points, he shocked the crowd by purposely allowing himself to lose, instead locking himself in the cage with Adam Cole after he and the rest of The Undisputed Era came out to try and assist Strong.
After throwing Strong out of the ring, Dream went to work on Cole, assaulting him with both the NXT Championship and a steel chair. When all was said and done, Dream climbed to the top of the cage with the belt, admiring it before saluting the crowd.
