By Brandon Albright, @B_Rock1978

NXT returned this week for more NXT action at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida. Last week, General Manager William Regal announced that Drew McIntyre and Killian Dain would go one on one to determine the new #1 Contender to the NXT World Champion Bobby Roode. With both men undefeated in NXT, who would walk out the #1 Contender?

** This Weeks Card **

- Ember Moon battled Ruby Riot.
- Oney Lorcan battled Danny Burch.
- No Way Jose battled Cezar Bononi.  
- Drew McIntyre battled Killian Dain of SAnitY in a #1 Contenders Match. 

** NXT **

- Ember Moon vs. Ruby Riot: The match closes out with Ruby getting a near fall frankensteiner on Ember. Ember drills Ruby with a kick, follows with a slam and then the roll through clothesline into the corner. Ember goes up top and nails the Eclipse Stunner on Ruby to score the pinfall.
Winner: Ember Moon, by pinfall.

- Earlier in the day, Kassius Ohno is shown meeting with the media. Hideo Itami interrupts and asks if Ohno asked for a match. Ohno says he requested one against Itami. Itami yells at Ohno in Japanese and kicks a trash can before walking off.

- Oney Lorcan vs. Danny Burch: The match closes out with Lorcan hitting an uppercut that busts Burch's nose. Both men go face to face and unload strikes on each other. Burch hits a lariat and follows with a power bomb on Lorcan for a near fall. Lorcan misses a dive at Burch, but rolls through and grabs Burch by the leg. Lorcan traps Burch in a single leg crab submission and gets the tap out win.
Winner: Oney Lorcan, by submission.

- After the match, Lorcan and Burch shake hands, but Burch pulls Lorcan in close and asks for one more match. Lorcan accepts the challenge.

- No Way Jose vs. Cezar Bononi: The match closes out with Jose countering muay thai kicks from Bononi and hits a series of slaps, a hip toss and a clothesline. Jose measures up Bononi and connects with the Jose knock out punch for the pinfall.
Winner: No Way Jose, by pinfall.

- After the match, Andrade "Cien" Almas hits the ring and attacks Bononi. Jose returns and makes the save, as Almas escapes and leaves with Thea Trinidad.

- "#1 Contenders Match": Drew McIntyre vs. Killian Dain: The match closes out with McIntyre going for the Claymore, but Dain hits a slam and then a Vader Bomb for a near fall. Dain counters a double underhook and hits a fall away into a bridge for another near fall on McIntyre. Dain hits a power bomb on McIntyre for another near fall. Both men go to the top rope where Dain hits a Fisherman's Suplex on McIntyre and hooks the leg, but still gets a near fall. McIntyre hits the Future Shock DDT on Dain, but Dain kicks out at one. McIntyre hits the Claymore on Dain, but Dain gets right back up and begs McIntyre for more. McIntyre drills Dain with a second Claymore and finally scores the pinfall.
Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall.

- After the match, Drew McIntyre looks into the camera and sends a message to NXT World Champion Bobby Roode. McIntyre tells Roode it's no longer his NXT and McIntyre is coming for his bloody title.
