There’s a huge weekend of wrestling ahead of us with one of WWE’s biggest (and longest) shows of the year serving as the climax. Survivor Series is the big show on Sunday, but one day prior is the real treat of the wrestling world. NXT brings us the latest instalment in their TakeOver series, this time hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s been many years since Toronto has hosted a PPV, so it’s only fitting that they get an NXT event thrown in as well.
Those lucky Canadians are in for a treat because women’s wrestling legend Mickie James is coming back to challenge for Asuka’s belt. That’s quite a big name to bring in. Also, not only is every NXT title on the line but Toronto also gets to see the finals of the 2nd Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Paul Ellering is even busting out the classic shark cage, so literally every stop is being pulled for this can’t-miss show.
Like every TakeOver special, the in-ring work is sure to be excellent from top to bottom so let’s preview the action ahead. Throughout this article, the entire card will be analysed, and the most likely winners will be selected from each match.
The Revival vs. #DIY
Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder have been putting on wrestling clinics over the past few months, showing the NXT audience what “Top Guys” can do when they cut back on the flash and simply swing those fists. Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa hope to put a stop to The Revival’s reign and just might pull it off.
The reason this match will be a must watch is because of its 2 out of 3 Falls stipulation. The likelihood that this one will be a show stealer is very high because all four competitors can go. This also could be a crowd pleasing moment because there’s no team more suited for a run with the straps than #DIY.
Gargano & Ciampa are massively over with the NXT crowd. This match in Toronto will be a chance for them to bust through to the next level because the ovation they’ll get when their hands are raised in victory will likely be incredible.
