    Steel Cage Match for the NXT Title:
    -Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe (c)

    NXT Women’s Title Match:
    -Nia Jax vs. Asuka (c)

    NXT Tag Team Title Match:
    -Dash and Dawson vs. Chad Gable and Jason Jordan (c’s)

    -Austin Aries vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

    -Tye Dillinger vs. Andrade “Cien” Almas

    First ever cage match in NXT to potentially finish off the Balor/Joe rivalry should obviously be awesome. Will it be "The End" for Finn in NXT?

    We get another womens match that should once again be able to out do the most recent main roster effort. Nakamura vs Aries which should be good fun and the rematch of the tag title bout at Takeover Dallas which was awesome.

    Plus the debut of Andrade “Cien” Almas... yeah I dunno who that is either but google tells me it's
    Former CMLL universal champion Manny Andrade


    anywhoo methinks this deserves it's own thread. Afterall these NXT specials always deliver

    so what do you all think? anyone see any titles changes ? I'm not expecting one, but will there be any surprises? Hideo Itami to return potentially? or maybe something else all together?

    I'd say winners will be

    Samoa Joe
    Asuka
    Chad Gable and Jason Jordan
    Shinsuke Nakamura
    Andrade “Cien” Almas

    Was just watching this video of Andrade Almas moves and have to say, I wasn't too impressed. And I mean that in the sense we've seen better in NXT

    Will it be "The End" for Finn in NXT?


    yep, and it'll be "The End" of Finn's career when he gets called up to the main roster, just to get burried by Roman, or Cena, or both.

    Dunno HHH is supposed to be a massive fan and being Irish and marketable to the ladies and a potential merch machine (Balor club / Demon) no doubt would make Vince a fan. I could see him being given a huge push and role on the new Smackdown as they try to make him into a main roster star far away from the Reigns effect.

    Anywhoo, I would have to agree with the predicted winners above but perhaps there will be some sort of a surprise to help build to a future feud or a unexpected loss because someone we don't suspect is getting called up for the draft. That said NXT is more sure and steady than shock value usually and one would guess they will just wow us in the ring instead.

    Should be a belter of a show, haven't been let down by a Takeover yet! I'm hoping that Finn gets the belt back, he's probably due a main roster call up but I can't see where he fits in right now so keeping him in NXT for another fued is the smart move I think.

    Aries finally getting a chance for some good ring work too, hasn't been up to much since his debut and Nakamura always delivers for the big shows.

    Have a feeling we might get a
    Bobby Roode
    run in at some stage

    Finn wins and his call up is put off for another year.

    I hate the idea of Balor losing whilst in his demon persona. If he is to lose, I hope they figure out a creative finish that doesn't hurt him.

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,469 ✭✭✭LeeJM


    Ill start from the bottom up. Andrade wins and Tye again puts over a newcomer. Nak vs Aries will go about 15 mins and they will hold back from going all out. Nak to win via Kinshasa. Asuka will pin Nia with some sort of flash pin/cradle.

    The tag titles I expect a bit of messing about. I think Ciampa and Gargano leave as tag champs tonight. AA will be moved up for the draft.

    NXT Title match. Joe winning with a little help from Bobby Roode and Austin Aries and then during a group beat down on Finn Hideo Itami will return and be set up as Joes next challenger.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,774 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    You implying a TNA invasion or maybe just tie into that whole EC3 speech?

    We talk about Finn losing and getting called up, but I guess it's also possible that Joe is getting called up as well. I hope he's not being kept on NXT just because Vince wants only 1 Samoan and his relations in the spotlight.

    All Im saying is that business is always Evolving

    Is this cage match is it pinfall or submission or escape only ?

    Expecting a run in by a certain former tna champ but Wud not surprise me if it didn't happen either

    With it being called the 'the end' I'm thinking with the draft coming up a huge chunk of nxt guys and gals will be called to the main roster

    Will surly be the last match between Joe and Finn ??

    Love having ppvs on weeknights (is 1am for us ??) It's really different than Sunday nights

    It's indeed a 1am start.

    Also a programming note. The nxt takeover the end pre show starts at 12:30am. In the words of Damien sandow "you're welcome"


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,390 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Cathy Kelley has more curves than mondello park. She's unreal lads.

    I can't wait for asuka vs nia jak. It's going to be a cracker.

    Am I the only one who doesn't care for Austin Aries? Can't even put my finger on why, never got any love for him


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,697 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Wud Samoa Joe and the more well known ex ran guys be counted as developmental superstars or I'm nxt to help the actual developmental guys ??

    Looking forward to breaking ground reloaded

    No I'm the same. I get a Steve Blackman vibe off him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,390 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    This opening video I'm not liking it. I don't want nxt to change. With them showing Rollins and Paige and Charlotte et al.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,721 ✭✭✭SureYWouldntYa


    With that video package, they really do seem to be promoting this as the end of NXT


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,108 ✭✭✭johnnysmack


    Will we see a coup de grace from the top of the cage?

    Who is this mexican dressed like a pimp


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,390 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Another hint dropped by Tom Phillips calling Corey graves an nxt icon. This brand split is going to make **** of nxt isn't it ?

    The new lad that I can't remember his name. Probably shows its not memorable.

    Tye Dillinger eating another pin.


  • Registered Users Posts: 838 ✭✭✭A Rogue Hobo


    The way I've understood the talk, and even Ziggler let slip in an interview recently that "3 full rosters are being split into two" made me think the entire NXT or at least most of it is being called up in the draft, with an entire new roster debuting in NXT.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,417 ✭✭✭WinnyThePoo


    That was a sweet spot.

    Probably just the top guys here will be on Raw/Smackdown soon

    Call up all the guys with serious indy experience, and let NXT actually be develpmental

    One of the reasons NXT blew up as it has was the indy guys that people knew before, hopefully it can maintain the same standard and interest if it really is developmental

    People have got behind the likes of Gable/Jordan who are homegrown, and with the generally good writing they should be able to build new guys up

    Did the commentator just say the winningst team in nxt history?
