NXT has been on fire lately, as their Takeover events have continued to get better and better, and with WrestleMania weekend just around the corner, their latest set of tapings at Full Sail Arena has begun setting up that Takeover card.

Some of these are obvious and some are going to come as a big surprise, and while none have been officially announced, after the antics that occurred at the latest tapings, it's easy to guess what the match-card will be for the show.

Please keep in mind that at this stage, none of these are official, but with the way things are going down in NXT, these are looking like the 5 bouts for the upcoming NXT TakeOver: New York.

#1 Dominik Dijakovic vs Keith Lee

This is a match that not many people would expect, but given that these two are going to be a big part of NXT's future, giving them their first TakeOver bout against each other makes a lot of sense.

On the past NXT taping, the two men had a physical war that ended in a double count-out, and it seemed much like the beginning of a feud, rather than a one-off match, so a bout on a big stage like TakeOver could blow the rest of the show out of the water.

Both men have faced off several times in the past for different promotions, and the athleticism that both possess regardless of their size makes this a unique and mouthwatering matchup.

It's not the biggest matchup in terms of name recognition, as both are quite new to NXT, but if the WWE gives them 10-15 minutes and lets the physicality flow, it could be one of the best matches of the entire weekend, and would put the winner of this bout on a fast track to the NXT Championship.
