With their huge NXT Championship showdown just days away, Bobby Roode and Hideo Itami met inside the ring in an explosive encounter.

The Glorious One did what he does best and struck down his NXT TakeOver: Chicago challenger verbally before the Japanese Superstar had enough and came out to confront the titleholder. General Manager William Regal couldn’t calm down Itami, who not only put NXT security to sleep, but left Roode himself laid out via the GTS. Could this be a preview of what’s to come this Saturday?
