NXT Takeover: Toronto is just days away, and while this is SummerSlam weekend for WWE, it appears that, yet again, WWE's developmental brand is on pace to outclass the main roster.

The card isn't as strong as we've seen in recent times, but with unpredictable moments, time given to each bout and the fantastic presentation we've become accustomed too, Takeover Toronto will no doubt deliver.

The last time NXT was in Toronto, we saw arguably the greatest tag team bout of all time in WWE, and while no match jumps out as an all-time great, they'll all be entertaining and intriguing match-ups. So without further ado, sit back and read along as we look forward to this weekend and attempt to predict the results of all five matches that NXT will present.


Candice LeRae vs. Io Shirai

This is one of the more intriguing matches on this card, as it gives us our first singles look at Candice LeRae on a Takeover event. It's her opponent, however, who is the true star in this contest. Ever since losing to Shayna Baszler, The Genius of the Skies, Io Shirai has simply snapped, and has played the role of bad-ass, ass-kicker to perfection, but it's got in the way of the friendships she's made in NXT.

At the end of the day, it's all about Championship gold, so that's a risk Shirai was willing to take, and unfortunately for the Tough Cupcake LeRae, her friendship was the first to be sacrificed. That's not to take anything away from Candice, as she's an incredible performer, but given how hard NXT pushed Shirai and the subsequent heel turn, it's hard to see her losing on such a big stage, but this will no doubt be a fantastic, emotion fuelled contest.

Prediction: Io Shirai comes out victorious in a brutal affair.
