Bobby Fish Explains Why The Undisputed Era And Forgotten Sons Never Feuded In NXT

The Undisputed Era was considered one of the many bright spots in the black and gold era of NXT. Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, Kylo O’Reilly, and Roderick Strong shook the brand to its core and won championships along the way. While the faction definitely left its mark on the brand and feuded with numerous talents, they never were involved in a feud with The Forgotten Sons(Jaxson Ryker, Wesley Blake, and Steve Cutler).

On a recent episode of Fish’s Undisputed podcast, the former Undisputed Era member spoke with Steve Maclin about why the dominated faction never faced off against The Forgotten Sons, despite having wanted to. You can check out some of the highlights below. (via 411 Mania)

Fish on the feud never happening: “I’ll say for myself, I really enjoyed uh the time that we spent at NXT, and part of that was was meeting you, meeting Blake. We never did get that program together that I think we’d all talked about a few different times. We did have the one ladder match in Portland, which was fun to put together. I think really what happened with us and you guys was, you guys were really kind of getting the Sons thing going. And I would say you guys were basically able to make other people look better than they were, and that’s kind of what we were too. So we worked with the Street Profits and we worked with — not to say that they weren’t good, they were. But it was our place to like just help people get reps and whatnot. So I think we were too similar in that way to end up getting a a lengthy program.”

Maclin on talking with Triple H about the feud: “That was one of those things too where we did get to work together and we knew that there’s money here. There’s like there’s a draw with that this program. And I remember talking to Hunter and Hunter would tell us, ‘Well, they’re heels.’ I’m like, ‘Undisputed Era, I know you’re trying to make them heels, but the crowd loves them. Make them the babyface in this role.’ But they didn’t wanna turn you guys at the time, which we get. It’s his plan. So, it’s just, ‘Alright, we’ll just keep pitching ideas.’”
