We take a look at what happened last week after NXT when Aleister Black and Hideo Itami had a confrontation.  They will meet at Takeover:  Brooklyn.

We go to commercial.

We are back and William Regal is in the ring.  He brings out the two men who will be wrestling for the NXT Title at Takeover:  Brooklyn.  Out first is Drew McIntyre.  Out next is the champion Bobby Roode.  Roode is flanked by Full Sail security.

Bobby says these gentlemen are his personal security detail.  They are here to protect everyone from a madman named Roderick Strong who is trying to get his hands on him.  Roode says he would hate for Strong to ruin that big money match at Takeover.  Roode says they are here to protect him more than Drew.  Roode officially welcomes Drew back to the WWE.  You came out and talked about the past and the mistakes you made.  You talked about feeling entitled and how Roode feels the same way now.  

Roode tells Drew you're damn right he is entitled.  Bobby says he doesn't need a second chance.  From the moment he walked into this company, he said he was going to make a change and be the face of this brand.  Roode said that he would become the NXT Champion.  Roode reminds Drew that he has done everything he said he would do.  Whether you like it or not, this is his NXT.  It is not yours, it is not theirs, it is not WE.  It is his NXT. 

You talked about how you were christened the Chosen One.  Roode says he did not need to be chosen.  Everybody knows that Bobby Roode is simply The One.

Drew says he has to give Roode some credit.  You are the prototype of a champion.  You have had one of the best years of any NXT Champion.  There is one big problem with Bobby Roode and his title reign.  Drew says that Roode is an ass.  He thought Roode was a facade but Bobby believes all the crap coming out of his mouth.  The higher Roode gets, the harder he will fall when Drew gives him a Claymore.  At the end of the Glorious Entrance, you will be standing across from the new NXT Champion.

Roderick Strong comes out and he wants to say something.  He says he knows what William Regal said.  You can fine him if you want.  Roderick says he is not done with Bobby Roode.  You talk about the NXT Title.  This is not about the NXT Title.  This is about you disrespecting his fiance and his family.  This is about you disrespecting him as a man.  Roderick says he is calling out Bobby.  This is not about the title or Brooklyn.  Roode says this is about a fight.  He says he wants to fight Bobby.  Roderick asks if he is man enough.

Roode tells Strong to shut up.  If you want a fight, he is not afraid of Strong.  Roode says he will put his title on the line.  If you want a fight, you got a fight.  All you have to do is go through Drew McIntyre first.  If you beat Drew next week, he will see him after Takeover.

Regal says he is the one who makes the matches.

Drew says to make the match.  He knows the games that Bobby is trying to play.  Drew says he will fight anybody, anywhere, any time.  You will not have the title after Brooklyn.  He will fight Roderick next week and then four days later, he will beat Bobby Roode.

Bobby says everyone is so enthralled with "We Are NXT"  Drew and Roderick want the match.  Bobby says the people want the match.  We are NXT so make the the match Mr. Regal.

Regal says he is all about giving the NXT Universe what they want so next week, Drew McIntyre faces Roderick Strong and if Strong wins, he faces Roode after Takeover.  

Bobby says it will be GLORIOUS.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Johnny Gargano is congratulated on his return to NXT.  Johnny says he was a little nervous going out there by himself.  Then he thought about going through the curtain at Takeover in Brooklyn last year.  He says he would never be alone after that reaction.  They won the tag titles and main evented a Takeover.  He needs that feeling again.  Johnny says he is not going to miss a Takeover.  Johnny says he wants a match.

Match Number Two:  Oney Lorcan versus Danny Burch

They stare each other down as the bell rings.  They jockey for position and they finally lock up.  Lorcan backs Burch into the corner but they hold on to the collar and elbow tie up.  Burch with a clean break.  Lorcan with a single leg take down but Burch with a snap mare.  Lorcan goes for the leg again and Burch backs into the corner and Lorcan releases the hold.  They tease a Greco Roman Knuckle Lock but Lorcan with a punch.  They lock up again and Burch with a cravate.
