Kyle O’Reilly debuts on AEW Dynamite

An Undisputed reunion went down on night one of AEW’s Holiday Bash.

Former NXT Superstar Kyle O’Reilly has debuted on AEW Dynamite, interfering in Adam Cole’s match against Orange Cassidy to give Cole the victory. Afterward, Bobby Fish and Trent? Baretta came down, and the three former Undisputed Era members took out Baretta.

The Young Bucks, Cole’s Elite buddies, came down after the segment — which elicited an “Undisputed” chant from the crowd — seemingly wanting an explanation for this NXT reunion.

After the match, AEW President Tony Khan tweeted that Kyle O’Reilly is officially All Elite, welcoming the Violent Artist to AEW.

Adam Cole, who himself jumped ship from NXT to AEW in September at All Out, promised to reveal a “big surprise” on tonight’s edition of Dynamite after teasing a gift last week. That surprise turned out to be former Undisputed Era cohort Kyle O’Reilly.

Kyle O’Reilly signed with WWE in 2017, making his debut in July of that year. He quickly aligned himself with Adam Cole and longtime tag partner Bobby Fish, forming the Undisputed Era, the most decorated faction in NXT history. Adam Cole turned on Kyle O’Reilly and all of Undisputed Era at TakeOver: Vengeance Day on Valentine’s Day 2021. Cole and O’Reilly squared off several times after the breakup, most recently at TakeOver 36 in August, a 2 out of 3 falls match that O’Reilly won.

O’Reilly’s last appearance on WWE television was a December 7th loss against Von Wagner on NXT 2.0. Rather than being released, O’Reilly’s contract simply expired, meaning he did not have to wait 90 days before wrestling for another company.
