Drew McIntyre In-Ring Promo:
The main event of Takeover will be Drew McIntyre versus Bobby Roode for the NXT Title. McIntyre is grateful for his loyal supporters. For the new people on the ride, we have four short weeks until Brooklyn. McIntyre only goes forward so he won’t look back on things. Once upon a time, he was not the man you see now. McIntyre was The Chosen One. He expected opportunities to be given to him. He felt entitled. When McIntyre wasn’t the hardest worker in the room, that’s when he failed.
When McIntyre left the WWE in 2014, he realized it was his dream and his fate. To be the hardest worker in the room, but he was the hardest worker in the damn world. The more he grew, the more success he had, and the more companies grew with him, it wasn’t because of him. It’s all the guys and girls pushing each other together to the limit. That’s why he signed with NXT in the first place. We walk side by side as equals except for one person, Bobby Roode. When McIntyre looks into Roode eyes, all he see is entitlement. Roode isn’t entitled to anything. Roode isn’t NXT, WE ARE NXT!!
– Bobby Roode will respond to Drew McIntyre next week on NXT. Also we’ll see Johnny Gargano vs. CWC Competitor, Raul Mendoza.
