Perfect way to start off the Wrestlemania weekend.
The perfect way to start off the Wrestlemania weekend.

With WrestleMania 34 just a month away, WWE is gearing up for putting up yet another brilliant NXT show with TakeOver: New Orleans. TakeOver: Philadelphia was an incredible event in the history of the NXT with Almas vs Gargano being a sure candidate for match of the year.

Now comes New Orleans, the Smoothie King Center- all jammed up for the Show of Shows which could very well set the benchmark for the coming ones. No matches have been confirmed so far but taking the current storylines into consideration, here are some of my picks that may fit well into the scene.

Check out six such matches.

#6 EC3 vs Velveteen Dream

A 'Dream' debut for EC3?

Ever since coming back to WWE, there have been many speculations about when will EC3 make his NXT debut. What better platform than the WrestleMania weekend for him to cause some trouble. EC3 is no new name to the wrestling business and is an outstanding performer.

Another wrestler who has no opponent for Takeover is Velveteen Dream. The man who won the award for the rivalry of the year last year is brilliant at everything he does, the storytelling, the character work, the innovative ideas, and especially in the ring.

The beauty about NXT is that two superstars can put up a great match without being in a feud. Take Zayn vs Nakamura at TakeOver: Dallas for example. Pure wrestling goes a long way in establishing a career as a singles competitor.
