During Thursday’s edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about the original plans for the upcoming NXT Takeover show, which will be main evented by a War Games match between the teams of The Authors of Pain and Roderick Strong, The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, and Kyle O’Reilly), and Sanity.
According to Meltzer, the original plan was for Adam Cole to challenge Drew McIntyre for the NXT Championship, while Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish were going to challenge the Sanity for the NXT Tag Team Championships.
“This was a late decision because it was originally gonna be Drew McIntyre and Adam Cole in a single, and then Sanity defending against Fish and O’Reilly.”
