10 “Say What?” moments from NXT Takeover: Toronto

f

Great matches, returning superstars and shock results made NXT Takeover: Toronto a must-see show

Could Nakamura overcome Samoa Joe in Toronto?

WWE would kick off Survivor Series weekend with NXT’s Takeover: Toronto show, would NXT continue their habit of overshadowing WWE’s main roster PPVs and put on another show-stealing event?

The event saw a number of high-profile matches such as Shinsuke Nakamura vs Samoa Joe for the NXT Title and The Revival facing off against #DIY, Johnny Gargano and Tomasso Ciampa, in a 2 out of 3 falls match for the NXT Tag Team Titles.

Not to mention the return of Mickie James who would challenge Asuka for her NXT Women’s Championship.

This show certainly had the potential to deliver a memorable event, but did it live up to expectations? Let’s look at 10 moments from NXT Takeover: Toronto that left us exclaiming, “Say What?”


#1 - What next for Nakamura?

How will Nakamura respond to his shock defeat?

After losing his NXT Championship on his very first defence of the title, what is next for Shinsuke Nakamura?

With NXT’s main event scene being very thin currently, could this result be a way to drag out the Nakamura/Joe feud while they build up some more talent to challenge for the NXT Title?

Or, will Shinsuke Nakamura, not Samoa Joe, be the one to imminently be called to either Raw or Smackdown? There are certainly many questions to be answered coming out of Takeover: Toronto, could we maybe see some of these questions answered at tonight’s Survivor Series?

Let us know what you think the immediate future holds for NXT in the comment section below.
