Will NXT Champion Bobby Roode and Drew McIntyre’s conversation lead to fireworks?
Since earning the right to challenge NXT Champion Bobby Roode at Takeover: Brooklyn III, Drew McIntyre hasn’t held back in his appraisal of the titleholder, declaring that The Glorious One is “entitled.” The undefeated Scot says he should know a false sense of entitlement when he sees it, too, since he was once the same way, before a soul-searching sojourn around the world changed him for the better.
Roode’s initial response was surprisingly tempered: Accepting that, perhaps, McIntyre is in fact a changed man, the boastful champion proposed that he and his challenger meet tonight in the middle of the ring for a conversation.
Will the TakeOver opponents simply agree to disagree about Roode’s behavior as their title showdown nears? Or might The Glorious One — who, as Roderick Strong knows all too well, has a way of slinging insults, no matter how cruel or unwarranted — give McIntyre even more motivation heading into Brooklyn?
