Beautiful and perfect tribute to Pat Patterson with "My Way"
playing throughout. I was privileged to watch Patterson
perform that song live as well as (oddly enough) dance with
him. One of the greatest pro wrestling minds of all time.
HIs contributions are unmatched. #WWENXT

Pat McAfee, Danny Burch, Oney Lorcan, and Pete Dunne will be
out, next.

-Commercial Break-

Pat McAfee, NXT Tag Team Champions Danny Burch and Oney
Lorcan, and Pete Dunne make their way to the ring. McAfee
tells Vic Joseph to shut up and tells him he sucks. McAfee
calls attention to Pat Pattersons passing and mentions he
has the utmost respect for him. McAfee has no respect for
wrestling fans and the Undisputed ERA. McAfee talks about
how lame the Undisputed ERAs video was earlier tonight.
McAfee thinks it was pathetic.

This team in the ring was put together by money, but you
have to invest to have a great team. More money than the
fans will ever see made this team. They have run this place
since they got here. This Sunday at WarGames, its about
Pete Dunne, the longest-reigning United Kingdom Champion of
all time. Dunne has ended careers. Just a week ago, with the
help of a masked man (not McAfee) beat Kyle OReilly in a
Ladder Match to win them the advantage in WarGames. This
Sunday at WarGames isnt another main event for the
Undisputed ERA. Its about two main eventers in Danny Burch
and Oney Lorcan finally getting a chance. They wont
squander a single second. They have no fear of the
Undisputed ERA.

To the fans at home, while theyre sitting in their moms
homes, McAfee wants them to feel every kick, punch, and slam
into the steel cage they give to the Undisputed ERA. When
you tune into the WWE Network, theyll want to see Pat
McAfee get it, but theyre going to be disappointed. They
broke the Undisputed ERAs spirit last week. Pete Dunne says
this Sunday, they will end the Undisputed ERA. McAfee says
that isnt undisputed. Its a promise. Theyre the greatest.
The fans all suck.

"This Sunday, we END the #UndisputedERA." @PeteDunneYxB with
the ! #WWENXT #WarGames @PatMcAfeeShow
