Ilja Dragunov & Jordan Devlin Contract Signing
Johnny Saint and Sid Scala will be moderating this contract signing. The Dragunov/Devlin rematch will take place on the 200th episode of NXT UK on May 13th.
Jordan Devlin: What is that? You guys hear that? Somebody better close the window back there because I can hear the winds of change blowing around here.
Ilja Dragunov: Okay, Jordan. First of all, take your feet off the table and hold on for a second. I’m the man who holds the NXT UK Championship. I fought, I suffered to make this brand strong and you belittle it with your attitude.
Jordan Devlin: Hang on, I belittle this brand? I am this brand. Don’t kid yourself, this brand is on my back. Just open your eyes for one second and look around at what’s causing all this, because you defended that title before and you got none of this. This contract signing, Sid, Johnny, these cameras, these people, all of this because you have a big money match with me, with The Irish Ace.
Ilja Dragunov: Really, Jordan? In fact, this championship made the person I am and I define this championship by the man I am. And the worst nightmare I have is to see you, you as the NXT UK Champion and make sure I’ll do everything I can that this will not happen.
Jordan Devlin: Ilja, you better wrap your head around the idea, because NXT UK Episode 200, I am walking out of here with the NXT UK Title, and I’m gonna make you live your worst nightmare.
Ilja Dragunov: Okay, Jordan. If you’re so confident, what if we just raise the stakes?
Jordan Devlin: I’m a gambling man. I’ll listen to what you have to say.
Ilja Dragunov: So actually, you’re right. If you win, you’re the champion. But I have a dream of a NXT UK without Jordan Devlin. So I suggest that the winner of this match will not only be the champion, but the loser will leave NXT UK.
Jordan Devlin: You know something? When I take that title, you’re not gonna want to show your face around here, anyway, so I accept.
