Fish and Strong connect simultaneously on Wolfe and he is down. The referee steps in and checks him and calls for the medical staff. On the replay, it looks like Fish connected flush with a kick to Wolfe’s chin who may have suffered a flash knockout. He slowly gets out of the ring and the medical staff walks him to the back. Wolfe looks very woozy and hopefully, he is OK but he’s not coming back in this match.8:54 p.m.: Get pumped for the main event!That’s still a lot of gold, tbh.#WorldsCollide #UndisputedERA @AdamColePro @KORcombat @theBobbyFish @roderickstrong pic.twitter.com/5osJQ2GJYZ— WWE NXT (@WWENXT) January 26, 20208:50 p.m.: Backstage, Johnny Gargano is doing an interview when he is attacked by Finn Balor.
