Kyle O'Reilly Debuts On AEW Dynamite
He's undisputedly All Elite
Kyle O'Reilly debuted at AEW's Holiday Bash edition of Dynamite in Greensboro on Wednesday, less than two weeks after leaving WWE.
O'Reilly provided late match interference for Adam Cole in his opening match victory over Orange Cassidy. After Bobby Fish distracted both Cassidy and referee Bryce Remsburg, O'Reilly slid into the ring and took Cassidy out, enabling Cole to win.
Earlier in the match, The Young Bucks appeared, but were attacked and run off by Chuck Taylor and Trent Barreta.
After the bout, Cole and O'Reilly briefly stared each other down, as Best Friends hit the ring to attack. However, the three Undisputed Era members beat Taylor and Barreta down, leading to Cole, Fish, and O'Reilly then standing together.
The Bucks reappeared, displaying confusion over O'Reilly's arrival, as well as where Cole's allegiances stood.
O'Reilly debuted in NXT in July 2017. He last appeared for the brand on December 7, losing a steel cage match to Von Wagner. His WWE contract expired days later.
During his time in NXT, O'Reilly held the Tag Team titles three times with his assorted Undisputed Era teammates, and won the 2018 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic with Cole.
