Adam Cole, baybay!
He’s a former NXT North American Champion, a three time Ring of Honor World Champion, CZW World Jr. Heavyweight Champion, and a former PWG World Champion. He’s won the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, the Survival of the Fittest, the Battle of Los Angeles, the Super Indy 16 and the Best of the Best.
Now the Undisputed Era leader can add one more accolade to his 12-year resume, as Adam Cole defeated Johnny Gargano in an instant classic at NXT Takeover XXV to become the brand new NXT Champion.

Saturday night’s special wasn’t all rainbows and sunshine for the Undisputed Era, however. While Cole managed to win the world title, Roderick Strong kicked off the show in an excellent, albeit losing effort against the “Original Bro” Matt Riddle. Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly also failed to win the NXT Tag Team Championship Fatal 4-Way Ladder Match, as the Street Profits walked away with the gold for the very first time.
