There's a distinct possibility that none of the scenarios we've mentioned will transpire when NXT Takeover: Philadelphia kicks off Royal Rumble weekend, in just a few days. There's also a slim possibility that some, if not all of these possibilities could indeed take place.

The whole purpose of this feature is to get you excited about NXT Takeover: Philadelphia. We don't really need to do much, considering that the build to the event has been quite exemplary indeed. Moreover, every Takeover invariably overshadows the WWE Big 4 pay-per-view, planned for the same weekend.

In any case, these are just some surprises that we could see take place in Philadelphia at Takeover. Each of them could blow the roof off the building and how!

NXT fans, we invite you to write down your thoughts in the section below.

#5 Candice LeRae evens the odds

Will Mrs. Gargano take out Zelina Vega?
Will Mrs Gargano take out Zelina Vega?

Everyone remembers their amazing clash from NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III, of course. Johnny Gargano took on Andrade 'Cien' Almas in the opening bout. He seemingly had the match won, when the interference happened. Zelina Vega threw a DIY shirt to Gargano, distracting him and costing him the match.

Fast forward to many months later, and Andrade 'Cien' Almas is the reigning NXT Champion. Johnny Gargano overcame all the odds to become the Number 1 Contender. These two warriors were destined to face off in the battlefield again.

This time, Gargano has a great equalizer to counter the distraction known as Zelina Vega. Only a few days ago, his own wife, Candice LeRae signed with WWE, after wooing us all at the Mae Young Classic.

This match would be a great way for her to make her debut, and connect with the WWE Universe, by nullifying Vega's underhanded and devious actions.
