4 reasons why NXT TakeOver: New York will be better than WrestleMania 35
#2 A heartfelt farewell
Aleister Black and Ricochet will open the show with a tag team title match against the War Raiders. Though the story between these two teams isn't well-developed (most attention has been paid to the Dusty Classic, which these two won), there is one thing that makes this match special. It's going to be Black and Ricochet's final bow on the black and yellow brand.
Black and Ricochet are two of the beloved members of the "NXT 6," and it will be bittersweet to see them go. Though we might rightly fear their careers on the main roster, their match with the War Raiders will be a great way for them to say goodbye to NXT. We can expect something explosive from the get-go, and their final curtain call is going to be something to remember.
This show-opener is guaranteed to be better than anything WrestleMania 35 can do.
