Bobby made his official farewell due to him getting called up to Smackdown Live on August 22, a couple days after Summerslam. That weekend, Bobby lost his NXT Championship to Drew McIntyre. Drew McIntyre also made an appearance on this show, main eventing the card.
Roode got a big reaction by the Mattamy Athletic after the match, with many giving him a standing ovation. To say the least he took his time leaving the ring, really taking in the atmosphere. The fans tonight got to see a couple other Canadian wrestlers, with Aliyah and Tye Dillinger also making appearances, winning their respective matches. With Roode’s NXT career in the books, we look towards his future on Smackdown Live.
