- As noted, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels will be the special guest referee for Adam Cole vs. WWE NXT Champion Drew McIntyre at the non-televised November 17th NXT live event from San Antonio, just one night before the "Takeover: WarGames" event in Houston. In the video above, McIntyre says he's been involved in big matches over the past few years across the world and there was one name that people wanted to see him face but it never worked out, until now.
McIntyre says Cole debuted in NXT at his expense by jumping him from behind. Drew then warns the NXT roster that if they're not here to make a name or go after the title, they're not wanted in NXT. Drew says the match will happen for the first time and Cole's receipt is coming. He ends the promo by saying WWE Survivor Series weekend belongs to NXT.
