WWE NXT Results – August 30, 2017
We are outside Full Sail and Alexander Wolfe, Eric Young, and security is down. We see some people walking away and William Regal is not in a good mood.
We are at Full Sail University and your announcers are Percy Watson, Nigel McGuinness, and Mauro Ranallo.
The announcers talk about what they just saw and Percy suggests that it is Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly, and Bobby Fish but Nigel will hear none of that.
The new NXT Champion, Drew McIntyre, makes his way to the ring.
Drew says this is his life. All of the work, the dreams, the bumps, the bruises, the ups and downs over the last 17 years led to this moment. He says this is his life’s work. He is not naive and he knows this title leaves a huge mark on your back. He didn’t even have the title for a minute before people were lining up. It means one thing to get it, but it takes more to hold on to it. Drew says he is going to get his mission statement out.
Bobby Fish, Kyle O’Reilly, Adam Cole. Every single person in the locker room, he is putting you on notice. 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 makes his way to the ring.
Strong says he will be the first to congratulate him, and he will be the first to agree with what Drew said. You are the target. Roderick says he does not care about them or that, all he cares about is him, his family, and that NXT Championship. Tonight, he beats Bobby Roode, the man you beat to gain that title. Then, after that, you wanted someone to step up to you and fight you like a man. Roderick says he is here.
Drew says this is the type of challenge he wanted. Roderick stepped up to him like a man. Drew says he hopes that Roderick is ready to be knocked down like a man.
Drew leaves the ring, but he keeps his eye on Strong.
We go to comments from Bobby Roode about NXT. He says he never leaves behind any unfinished business. He says that he needs to finish with Roderick Strong, who blew him a kiss after his match with Drew McIntyre. Bobby says he will beat Strong and then he will get his title back from Drew McIntyre. Then he will make Smackdown Glorious.
