NXT videos: War's on between Cole and Strong

Drew McIntyre, Andrade “Cien” Almas get set to meet face-to-face

Drew McIntyre and Andrade Almas come face-to-face

Just days before they lock up at TakeOver: WarGames, NXT Champion Drew McIntyre and upstart challenger Andrade “Cien” Almas will meet for a face-to-face tonight on WWE NXT.

Almas was granted the title match after he strung together a series of big wins, but even prior to that, when Almas & Zelina Vega first made their championship ambitions known, McIntyre had just one, simple request: For Almas to challenge him face-to-face, “like a man.”

Instead, “Cien” and Vega staged an ambush on Nov. 1, the night of their contract signing, with Almas laying out the Scottish brute with an attack from behind.

Vega claims nobody in NXT can touch the “new” Andrade Almas, and we’ll find out for sure this Saturday when he goes up against McIntyre. However, after all the trash-talk that Vega & Almas dished McIntyre’s way, one can only wonder if the TakeOver fireworks won’t start a little early.
