The Undisputed Era Would Love For Imperium Rematch To Take Place In UK, Says Adam Cole

The Undisputed Era leader Adam Cole has teased that the popular WWE faction would love to hold a rematch with rivals Imperium in the UK.

Imperium, who represented NXT UK, clashed with The Undisputed Era in the main-event showdown at Worlds Collide last month.

And the NXT UK stable, which is headed by UK champ Walter, walked away with the ultimate bragging rights on the night.

Undisputed Era member Bobby Fish said that the clash with Imperium was "great for them" and that they "got the rub."

The 43-year-old NXT star told SPORTbible in an exclusive interview: "It's great for them. I mean, they got the rub. Everybody wants to work with us.

"Honestly, look up and down the roster here in WWE and people are calling us out all the time.

NXT champion Cole praised Imperium and was thrilled to headline Worlds Collide with them, but he insisted that their intense rivalry is far from done.

"The other side of that is Imperium is a great group," he explained.

"They've been doing awesome things in NXT UK and ever since they formed people have been talking about -- or entertaining the idea of -- us doing a match against them.

"Again, I've known all of those guys for a really long time and it was a huge match. It was really, really cool to be able to headline a big show like that and go up against those guys.

"But we definitely want a rematch, though! Maybe even in the UK."

The Undisputed Era ambushed Imperium last month after Walter defeated Joe Coffey at NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool II.

And Roderick Strong admitted that it was "surreal" to make a sensational appearance at the UK-based WWE event.

He told SPORTbible: "It's chilled. Freaking chilled. I just remember being... I ripped my shirt, I blacked out at some point and I was just like, 'I'm gonna take all my clothes off.'

"No, but very surreal [to be there]. Just a good reminder of where we're at and then just to think about where we came from."

Cole fondly recalled the experience at Blackpool, saying that the "fans are just the best."

The 30-year-old WWE star explained: "And it was a really good reminder of how great the fans are in the UK. Like, every time any of us have ever gone over there the fans are just the best.

"We're already really fired up, but when they're that fired up, oof... forget about it. It's great! It's great!"

Kyle O'Reilly echoed the sentiments of both Strong and Cole, but he also praised the UK fans for the passion they show for WWE.

The 32-year-old NXT star said: "That's what proper fans [are]. No, but seriously. When you see college football, my dream was to go to like... I love Florida State.

"I wanted to go to like a real college where they were just so passionate about their school, their sports.

"And that's how it feels in the UK, they're just so passionate about what they're about to watch, what they're watching.

"They're there for a reason: to have a good freaking time and they don't care."

The Undisputed Era also revealed which WWE stars from Raw and SmackDown they would want to face the most.

Cole, real name Austin Jenkins, also said that the fan-favourite WWE stable has no desire to quit NXT right now.
