Drew McIntyre def. Killian Dain to earn a match against NXT Champion Bobby Roode at TakeOver: Brooklyn III
Drew McIntyre and Killian Dain were cognizant of the huge stakes at hand as they tore into each other in this week’s main event. Both Superstars were defending impressive undefeated streaks, but they were also fighting for a prize even sweeter than an untainted win-loss record: The opportunity to challenge NXT Champion Bobby Roode at TakeOver: Brooklyn III.
The monstrous brawlers traded colossal hits, punctuated by the 300-pound Dain dropping McIntyre from the sky with a fisherman superplex. McIntyre forged ahead and scored with the Future Shock DDT, only for the SAnitY big man to kick out at one. McIntyre lit up Dain with the Claymore Kick, but Dain shook off the strike and began sitting up before a pin could even be attempted. Left with no other option, McIntyre fired off a second Claymore Kick, this time dropping The Beast of Belfast for the three-count.
With an NXT Championship Match now in reach, McIntyre didn’t have interest in basking in his victory. Instead, he stared into the camera and addressed the champion: “I’m coming for you and your bloody title.”
