Former AEW star Bobby Fish is said to have been behind a plot to get the Undisputed ERA team out of AEW and back into WWE.
Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly debuted together in NXT back in August 2017 and the TakeOver: Brooklyn III show. That same night the pair were joined by a debuting Adam Cole and the Undisputed ERA was born. Over the course of their time together on the black and gold brand, the trio became a foursome when they added Roderick Strong to their ranks.
The group split in early 2021 when Cole turned on O’Reilly while Fish was out injured. Bobby Fish ended up released by the company in the summer of 2021 with Cole and O’Reilly both subsequently leaving when their contracts expired.
The three men were not a part for long however as they were soon reunited in AEW with Fish and O’Reilly known by their pre-WWE tag team name of reDRagon. However, that wasn’t to last too long as Fish left the company when his contract expired in August 2022 with Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly both sidelined with injuries.
There had been reports in recent weeks of WWE allegedly contacting contracted AEW talent about returning to WWE following Triple H’s accession to the top of the company. Now, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Ryan Frederick posted on the site’s message boards news about Bobby Fish trying to convince his teammates to head back to their former employer:
“I posted it in the Bobby Fish thread but I know Fish was trying to get them to Cole and Kyle to ask for their releases to go back to WWE and they both told him no.”
“It’s possible Cole may have clued Tony (Khan) in. If he did, I doubt he was the only one. I’m sure Swerve was one of them who did so.”
Bobby Fish has seemingly foregone an immediate return to WWE as he made his debut for IMPACT Wrestling at Victory Road.
