Matt’s Musings: 2019 was an incredible year for NXT, with many memorable moments and matches. In the center of the majority of those moments was the Undisputed Era, who are clearly deserving of every award they received. Congratulations to all the award winners, as I for one am excited to see what NXT has planned for 2020.
