Bobby Fish: There Was No One Other Than Roderick Strong In WWE Who Could Have Joined The Undisputed Era
Roddy Strong joined Undisputed Era in 2018
Bobby Fish has opened up on WWE's decision to add Roderick Strong to The Undisputed Era, saying he doesn't not believe there was anyone else in the company capable of joining the faction.
The Undisputed Era - Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly and Fish - debuted in NXT in 2017, with Strong joining up with the stable at a later date after Fish suffered an ACL injury.
Speaking on the All Real Wrestling Podcast, Fish said: "I don’t think there’s anybody else in the company who could have joined the group. Honestly, looking back, when they decided they wanted to give us a fourth, I don’t know if it was completely just a reaction to my ACL injury, or if there was a plan for that prior, I don’t know.
"The timing was literally right after I tore my ACL and we weren’t gonna say no but if our opinion was asked and they were to have said to us, ‘Hey, is there anybody in the company that you would [want in the group]’ Roddy would have been the unanimous choice so for them to launch [Roderick as a fourth member]...
"Again, it’s another one of those serendipitous where it was like, ‘Please. Yes,’ and I think the Undisputed ERA had a little bit different look at that time with Roddy coming in and there was an adjustment for sure and then once I was healthy and could come back, there was another adjustment because they had such great chemistry between the three of them and then I was coming back into the fold and then it took a little bit of time for the chemistry of the four of us to work itself out but every facet and every turn, it was like we couldn’t help but bat 1000 when the four of us were together."
