We are in Winter Park, Florida and your announcers are Mauro Ranallo, Nigel McGuinness, and Percy Watson.

Undisputed Era come to the ring and Adam Cole says they start the holidays early by embarrassing the top one percent of idiots EC3 tonight.  In 2018, EC3 thought that coming to NXT would elevate his career to new heights.  With help from a steel chair, EC3 found out that NXT was their world.  The Undisputed Era is the center of the universe.  Everything revolved around them.  Make no mistake about it, 2018 was not a career year for them, it was the start of a decade of undisputed dominance.  Adam promises that all four of them will be draped in championship gold in 2019.  That is not a threat, that is undisputed.
