SummerSlam will have a tough time topping that! As we say after most NXT TakeOver's, this one was probably the best yet.


Samoa Joe (C) vs Shinsuke Nakamura (for the NXT Championship)

There's been a fiery build to the feud in the last few weeks as Nakamura has gotten more and more under Joe's skin. This one is a true dream match and should be a classic. What an entrance for Nakamura! He has his own violinist. He plays along to Nakamura's theme as the crowd sing to it. This is brilliant.

There are Nakamura signs everywhere. Brooklyn is going nuts for the King of Strong Style!

Joe's out next and he talks trash into the camera as he walks out. He may not have a fancy entrance, but he has the NXT Championship slung on his shoulder.

Joe and Nakamura clash even before the match has begun but stay apart for now.

The crowd are still singing Nakamura's theme as the match begins and Joe looks visibly annoyed.

Joe overpowers Nakamura and pushes him into the corner as the grapple. They go for the grapple again. Joe kicks Nakamura, Nakamura counters with a kick and Joe hits back with a slap to Nakamura's face.

As Joe looks to fight out, Nakamura gets him in a triangle lock. Joe powers out of that too and gets Nakamura into a Texas Cloverleaf submission hold. But Nakamura manages to reach the ropes.

Asuka (C) vs Bayley (for the NXT Women's Championship)

Bayley comes out to a thunderous reception from the crowd, the loudest of the night so far and it's great to see Izzy at ringside with her dad. She's followed out by Asuka. Everyone might not like Asuka, but they all respect her. Amazing entrance for the Empress of Tomorrow. You have to see this one. She looks supremely confident as she makes her way out.

This one really has a big-match-feel. The crowd are going nuts even before the match has begun.

Bayley looks better prepared this time than she did in Dallas. She goes toe to toe with Asuka in the opening exchange but early on, it looks like one of her shoulders isn't a 100%.

The two begin the match pretty even before Asuka counters a springboard from Bayley with a knee to the face. Asuka laughs as Bayley crawls outside. Bayley gets up and runs back inside only to be met with a running hip attack. She follows it up with a gullotine hold on the middle rope on Bayley as she smiled at the crowd.

Asuka strolls around the ring as Bayley is prone in the corner. Asuka hits Bayley with a running strike before kicking her in the face from the apron. Bayley is hung up on the middle rope and Asuka gives her a modified version of Roman Reigns' Drive By.

Asuka takes Bayley to the top rope after this and goes for the superplex but Bayley counters. She has Asuka hanging from the corner and hits her with her patented springboard elbow to the corner.

As she moves away, Asuka trips her and gets her in an overhead kneebar.

The Revival(C) vs Johnny Gargano & Tomasso Ciampa (for the NXT Tag-Team Championships)

This one has real heat behind it and is the first championship match of the night. The newly christened DIY, Gargano and Ciampa, come out first before being followed out by The Revival.

Ciampa and Dawson start us off with this one. We begin with some excellent chain wrestling between the two before Ciampa lands a devastating chop on Dawson who reels to the outside. The Revival regroup as the crowd chants "Let's go Ciampa".

Dawson comes back inside the ring only to be chopped again. Wilder tries to interfere and he gets chopped for bothering. Ciampa tags in Gargano who hits Dawson with running knees to the chest in the corner.

Gargano has Dawson in a shoulder bar as he manages to reach out and  tag in his partner. Wilder gets a dropkick in the face before managing to get the upper hand thanks to dubious means. Dawson and Wilder are firmly in control now and work over Gargano.

Gargano crawls to the corner and tags Ciampa in. They have the Reival on the outside and Gargano hits a running dive through the middle-rope to Dawson on the outside and Ciampa hits a stereo running knees to Wilder.

Wilder is back in the ring and tags in his partner behind Ciampa's back. Ciampa sees it and hits Dawson with a forearm. He tries to fight off both members of The Revival before getting overpowered.

Wilder takes advantage and The Revival take out Gargano's knee. Wilder double stomps Gargano's knee and Wilder has him in a kneebar.

The Revival retain.

We see some of the CWC contestants at ringside, including Rich Swann, Kota Ibushi and Brian Kendrick.


Bobby Roode vs Andrade "Cien" Almas

The wait is finally over. Bobby Roode's GLORIOUS debut is up next and this one should be amazing.

What an atmosphere as Bobby Roode makes his way out. The crowd is singing in unison with Bobby Roode's theme. Andrade "Cien" Almas is a very talented wrestler, but his gimmick is so unpopular that he gets roundly booed as soon as his music hits.

As the match begins, the crowd chant "This is glorious". Roode might be the heel here, but that's only on paper.

Roode tries to throw Almas out of the ring, but Almas blocks it and hangs on to the middle and top rope in his patented fashion. He follows it up with an apron dropkick on the glorious one. Almas has Roode's number in the opening exchanges and the veteran Canadian looks frustrated at being second best so far.

Almas goes for the high-flying move one time too many as Roode drops him from the top rope. Roode has Almas cornered and follows it up with kicks and chops. Stalling vertical suplex for the nearfall after this.  Roode goes to the top rope after this and Almas dropkicks  Roode out of the ring for the advantage. He follows it up with a springboard corkscrew to the outside. Is there any move that Almas can't pull off?

Almas has slowly won the crowd over with his performance. He goes for the running corner knees but Roode hits him with a devastating clothesline.

Roode looks for top German Suplex but Almas counters with a german suplex of his own for the nearfall. The duo hit each other with punches till Almas hits Roode with spinning heel kick followed by the running knees to the corner! It's only a 2-count! Roode kicks out!

Almas goes for the brainbuster but Roode counters with an uppercut before hitting the Glorious Bomb! That's it. This one is over.

Roode looked GLORIOUS on his debut and for his part, Almas was super impressive.


Ember Moon vs Billie Kay

Billie Kay faces the debuting Ember Moon next. Billie Kay makes her way out to the ring first in a beautiful flowing cape. She's followed out by Ember Moon. She hasn't even made her way fully down the ramp and she already looks like a star. As Corey Graves said, "This woman is a game-changer."

Ember Moon is all over Billie Kay in the opening stages but this only pisses off Billie Kay. Ember moon hits a sweet flying middle-rope cross body.
Kay hits back with an armbreaker followed by a unique submission move. She has Moon up on her shoulders in a Razor's Edge sort of position, from where she's gives her opponent a chokehold.

Ember Moon regains her edge following a pin attempt hitting a neckbreaker into a DDT. She follows this up with a Spinning Catch Stunner from the top rope! What A MOVE! That was supernatural.

1 - 2 - 3!

Ember Moon def. Billie Kay

Both women were impressive tonight but Ember Moon really looks like she's on a whole different level. That was impressive.


We see Kota Ibushi and Funaki backstage with Shinsuke Nakamura as he prepares for his match later in the evening.


Austin Aries vs No Way Jose

We have a very vocal crowd tonight as we kick off with No Way Jose vs Austin Aries. We have a conga line in Brooklyn as No Way Jose makes his way out. It's a huge party here in Brooklyn.

Austin Aries looks dapper in his half-cape as he comes out. Huge reaction from the crowd for The Greatest Man That Ever Lived.

Jose starts the match with fire as Aries as Aries looks to avoid his opponent. Jose slaps Aries across the face to begin things as Aries finds it difficult to match up with Jose in the opening stages. Aries repeatedly leaves the ring for a breather but Jose just follows him out every time. Great start to the match for No Way Jose.

Aries regains the momentum after stunning Aries with a guillotine drop. Aries starts pounding down on his opponent, following it up with a patented diving elbow to the back. Aries looks firmly in control of the match now, but Jose is down but not out. Jose regains control once again, and it looks like Jose's size advantage will be a factor.

Aries hooks in the Last Chancery out of nowhere! Jose somehow manages to crawl to the ropes as the crowd goes nuts. Jose catches Aries with a swinging TKO for the nearfall! Huge counter from No Way Jose!

Aries counters Jose's Full Nelson slap by getting Jose to the outside, following it up by a sweet Plancha to the outside.

As the two men get back inside the ring, they clothesline each other. Jose goes for the Full Nelson again, unsuccessfully. Aries has countered that move thrice already. Aries follows it up with a running corner dropkick. Aries heads to the top rope with Jose in the middle of the ring, but Jose gets up to meet Aries on the top rope.

Aries counters with a sunset-flip powerbomb! He seamlessly gets No Way Jose into the Last Chancery! No Way Jose taps out!

Hideo Itami's music hits! Itami's here! He's at Brooklyn. Itami makes his way down to the ring. Aries goes to attack him but Itami counters with a series of stiff strikes. The crowd shouts "GTS" as Itami gets Aries up on his shoulders. 

It's the GTS! Itami hits the GTS on Austin Aries! What a way to kick off TakeOver: Brooklyn II.


Ladies and Gentlemen, it's time, for NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II. It's been a year in the making and it is going to be a wild ride. This is Brooklyn.


Welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II. Stay up-to-date with all the latest from NXT's biggest night of the year, and of course, chime in with you comments and thoughts in the live chat throughout the show. 

So, sit back and enjoy. We have just under 20 minutes to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II.


NXT is back in Brooklyn, a year on from the first TakeOver from the Barclays Centre. Last year’s TakeOver is widely considered among the best NXT TakeOvers and the big question going in is whether TakeOver Back 2Brooklyn can live up to its predecessor.

The card looks stacked going in but it’ll take a lot to compete with a card that had Jushin Thunder Liger, Finn Balor vs Kevin Owens and the historic NXT Women’s Championship match between Sasha Banks and Bayley.

This year, Back 2 Brooklyn is headlined by Samoa Joe vs Shinsuke Nakamura for the NXT Championship. The build-up to this one has been red hot with security needing to keep them apart in the past two weeks.

The event is unofficially co-headlined by the NXT Women’s Championship match between Asuka and Bayley in a rematch from their original at TakeOver: Dallas. Bayley’s shown a fire we’ve never seen from her before in recent weeks, as she look to regain her precious championship. The defending champion Asuka on the other hand, looks like an unstoppable force and is yet to be defeated in her NXT run.

The sleeper contender for match of the night, in my opinion, will be the Tag-Team Championship match between defending champions, The Revival, taking on the team of Johnny Gargano and Tomasso Ciampa. Then, there’s the GLORIOUS debut of Bobby Roode, who will be taking of the Mexican sensation, Andrade “Cien” Almas.

Billie Kay got herself on the card last week after demanding a match from NXT GM William Regal and she’ll be taking on the debuting Ember Moon. Ember Moon was an independent wrestling standout before signing with NXT and has been receiving rave reviews for her house show matches in recent weeks. This one should be one to keep an eye out for.

Last but not least, Austin Aries is taking on No Way Jose. This feud began out of nothing when Austin Aries attacked No Way Jose on the announcers table while they were dancing together. Why did Austin Aires snap? Well, Austin Aries doesn’t need a reason to snap. Since then, Aries and Jose have done well to get the feud over. No Way Jose has also shown us a different side of him, and he shown us that he’s more than just a Latino dancer stereotype.

It’s shaping up to be a great show.
