After NXT went off the air last night, William Regal uttered the phrase that the NXT Universe has been waiting a whole year for him to say, “WarGames!”

Following Undisputed ERA returning to NXT to confront Pat McAfee’s brand and the announcement that NXT TakeOver: WarGames would be held this year on Sunday, December 6th, 2020, it was fairly obvious where the rivalry between Adam Cole’s faction and Pat McAfee’s new gang would be heading. on Twitter, WWE released a video of William Regal making the match official.

The Undisputed ERA vs. Pat McAfee, Pete Dunne, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch (WarGames Match)

Will Pat McAfee and company finish what they started, or will they rue the day they targeted The Undisputed ERA?

This long-simmering issue dates back to NXT TakeOver XXX, where the brash McAfee squared off with Adam Cole one on one. Though Cole emerged victorious, the former NFL All-Pro impressed with athleticism and unexpected ring prowess in his squared-circle debut.

McAfee was far from done with Cole and The Undisputed ERA, however. First hiring Ridge Holland to take out the former NXT Champion at NXT TakeOver 31, McAfee engineered a plot to take out The Undisputed ERA one by one, costing them the chance to challenge Breezango for the NXT Tag Team Titles.

Instead, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch took their place, and with McAfee’s help, claimed the championship gold.

Pete Dunne appeared ready to join Kyle O’Reilly in arms when he confronted McAfee and company — until Dunne shocked O’Reilly and the NXT Universe by instead aligning with the opposition.

After weeks of running roughshod over the black-and-gold brand, The Undisputed ERA finally returned on Nov. 18 and an all-out brawl ensued. NXT General Manager William Regal announced the only fitting solution for the highly combustible situation: WarGames!

With the battle lines drawn, which team will claim victory?
