Drew McIntyre def. Oney Lorcan
Returning to a WWE ring for the first time in nearly three years, Drew McIntyre received a hero’s welcome as he fought renowned tough guy Oney Lorcan. Showered with chants of “Welcome back,” the 6-foot-5 McIntyre asserted his strength, tossing Lorcan with a pair of belly-to-belly suplexes and catching him mid-flight with a gut-wrench suplex onto the ring apron.
The brawler from Boston clawed back, ripping into McIntyre with searing strikes to the head and chest, as well as a running Blockbuster neckbreaker. Not to be outdone, the Scottish Superstar flattened Lorcan with a reverse Alabama Jam before taking him off his feet with a huge boot, sealing the win.
As the referee tended to a laceration suffered by Lorcan, the victorious McIntyre informed the NXT Universe that while he could have joined any brand in sports-entertainment, he chose NXT because it’s home to the best roster and the biggest prize: The NXT Championship.
