NXT TakeOver Brooklyn III Spoilers and possible SummerSlam 2017 Spoilers follow.
In the NXT TakeOver Brooklyn III main event, Drew McIntyre defeated Booby Roode to become the NXT Champion.
Post match former Ring of Honor stars and now NXT superstars Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly – former reDragon – led by Adam Cole attacked McIntyre leaving him in a heap.
It appears that Adam Cole and not Bobby Roode is being set up as Drew McIntyre next opponent for the NXT Championship.
So, how did Bobby Roode respond to his loss? Here is WWE video of his remarks.
Roode is clearly devestared by the loss as Roderick Strong blows him a kiss… goodbye?
Could Roode shake-up SummerSlam 2017 on Sunday and debut on Raw or Smackdown Live this week?
Only two (2) former NXT superstars have been 2-time NXT Champions, Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura. Will Bobby Roode be third or is Raw or Smackdown Live bound like all other former NXT Champions?
On NXT’s former ROH faction, as noted, it looks like Adam Cole will be after Drew McIntyre’s NXT Championship while Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly with after new NXT Tag Team Champions Sanity. WWE seems to have faith in and big plans for these superstars and this new faction.
Should be an exciting week ahead.
