Kyle O'Reilly is All Elite.

Adam Cole promised a gift for The Young Bucks and he delivered in the form of Kyle O'Reilly.

O'Reilly interfered in Cole's match against Orange Cassidy, helping Cole pick up the victory. Bobby Fish ran down during the match to check out Cole after he rolled to the outside to avoid the Orange Punch. After the match, Cole and O'Reilly exchanged words, but ultimately fought on the same side against Chuck Taylor & Trent, who ran down to help OC.

Once Best Friends were taken care of, The Young Bucks came down to wonder what was going on. Cole had a confused look on his face as he left the ring, not posing with Cole & O'Reilly.

Tony Khan took to social media to confirm O'Reilly has signed with AEW.

O'Reilly and Cole, alongside Fish, were famously linked as the Undisputed ERA in NXT. They were later joined in the group by Roderick Strong, who remains with NXT.

O'Reilly's contract with WWE expired earlier this month, making him a free agent. He lost a cage match to Von Wagner on the December 7 episode of NXT 2.0.
