Drew McIntyre & Roderick Strong In-Ring Segment:

This is Drew McIntyre’s world now. If you want a shot at the champ, all you have to do is step into the ring, walk through the ropes and tell him to his face that he wants a fight.
Roderick Strong comes out to interrupt McIntyre. Strong understands where McIntyre is coming from. McIntyre is the target. Strong only cares about his family and the NXT Championship. Tonight, Strong will defeat Bobby Roode. McIntyre wanted someone to step up to him, well Roderick Strong is here. This is the type of challenge McIntyre wanted. McIntyre hopes that Strong is ready to be knocked down like a man.
