The final moment of NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III looked to be Drew McIntyre standing victorious as the new NXT Champion … and then Adam Cole showed up.
The three-time ROH World Champion and former Bullet Club member attacked McIntyre from behind after a distraction from Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish. The show went off the air with the three former Ring of Honor vets standing tall as Cole held the NXT Championship.
Check out Cole’s debut in the video below.
