The undefeated Drew McIntyre has decimated every opponent thrown his way, and at TakeOver: Brooklyn III, the Scottish Superstar will finally get what he’s been in search of: The opportunity to challenge NXT Champion Bobby Roode.
McIntyre has maintained a laser focus on NXT’s top prize since he signed with the brand in April. He earned the title match the old-fashion way, piling up one win after another. With a smash-mouth style, he conquered the likes of Oney Lorcan, Andrade Almas and Killian Dain. McIntyre’s win over The Beast of Belfast secured an opportunity to face Roode as well as snapped Dain’s own undefeated streak.
With such an impressive resume, McIntyre might rightly be considered Roode’s most dangerous challenger to date. However, don’t expect The Glorious One to be intimidated. The resourceful and calculating veteran champion has consistently found ways to keep hold of the NXT Title against the stiffest competition. McIntyre says it’s no longer “Bobby Roode’s NXT,” but Roode will stop at nothing to prove otherwise.
Will Drew McIntyre complete his mission in Brooklyn, or will The Glorious One continue his era atop NXT? Don’t miss this summer’s biggest NXT Championship Match when TakeOver: Brooklyn III streams live on the award-winning WWE Network on Saturday, Aug. 19, at 8 ET/5 PT.
