NXT general manager William Regal knows this too, prompting him to schedule a bout between O’Reilly and Cole at the NXT Great American Bash on Tuesday July 6th.
Former Undisputed ERA allies and best friends wiped out each other in a barbaric unsanctioned match this April at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver. Although O’Reilly outlived Cole in the war of attrition, the tension between them did not disappear at all.
Through their mutual hatred. perhaps they even cost each other the chance to win the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver: In Your House. O’Reilly caught Cole with a heel hook, but his fixation left him vulnerable to Cross Carrion Cross’s jacket, allowing Cross to retain the title in the Fatal 5-Way Match.
Unlike their previous meeting, Regal envisioned that it would be a “wrestling duel.”
Will the outcome be the same as their brutal unauthorized combat? Or will Cole’s Last Shot make him laugh last?
