Shinsuke Nakamura will headline the event

The night before Survivor Series, NXT will take over in Toronto in what should be an exciting card. 

NXT has been producing quality PPV’s since the inception of the ‘Takeover’ event. This one will be no different. There will be returns and new beginnings happening for our NXT stars and we are, perhaps, in for some shockers on Saturday night.

The Authors of Pain are strong contenders to win the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic at NXT TakeOver. The young tag team has been on a dominant run since their debut. Not only do they have brute strength but the expertise that they have on board with Hall of Fame manager Paul Ellering has served them tremendously well. 

TM161 have been the sleeper team, making it to the finals to face Authors of Pain. 

Bobby Roode looks to keep his NXT tenure glorious as he takes on Tye Dillinger in a one on one bout. Championships will also be decided at Takeover, with a big rematch for the NXT Championship as well as a returning Mickie James challenging the undefeated Asuka for the NXT Women’s Championship. Toronto is definitely in for a great weekend. 

Everyone involved on the card will be looking to make a statement, and it will continue to prove why NXT is on top of its’ game.

And with that, there are bound to be some twists that will happen on Saturday night. Here are five that can happen at Takeover.

#1 Revival upset

It is Gargano and Ciampa’s time

The team of Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa, better known as #DIY, will take on the two-time NXT tag team Champions The Revival. 


This stemmed from their cancelled match a few weeks back for the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. The Revival bowed out of the match due to injury, only to attack #DIY later, thereby costing them their chance to advance to the finals.

#DIY are perhaps one of the most over talents on NXT right now. Why not put the Championships on them? The Revival’s dominance on NXT might be coming to a halt courtesy of the talented duo. If #DIY don’t capture the Championships, it will likely be due to The Revival pulling cheat tactics.
