Drew McIntyre vs Oney Lorcan – NXT #243

Drew McIntyre vs Oney Lorcan

taped 04/05/2017, aired 04/12/2017

Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida, United States

(reviewed 04/20/2017) Very fun TV main event here. Both men are putting in a lot of effort here with big strikes, big slams, and big bumps. Oney especially brings a level of heart and sympathy you just don’t see enough in wrestling, and it helps to make up for Drew’s lack of emotion (though, due to this basically being an extended squash, he didn’t exactly need to show that emotion here). It’s not polished, but that’s sort of the point. A wild, frantic slugfest isn’t going to look precise. I’m not over the moon about this match like some people are, but it’s quite a lot of fun, well worth a watch, and is what WWE needs more of these days.
