I'm going, and I'm pumped. 2nd TakeOver show for me to attend live, lesss gooooo

 

I was hoping we'd get Roode defending against Hideo and McIntyre, but a possible singles with Hideo sounds fun enough. Hope the latter gets a good match up with someone like Strong or Black.

I'll be happy with any of them winning, honestly the 4 of them are really cool in their own way.

Asuka losing the title here and not playing a factor into the decision could make a full heel turn for her great.

Thanks lol.

 

I wonder what non-title matches we might see on this card? I'm not sure if I want Drew vs. the loser of Roddy/Hideo next week, or Drew vs. Ohno, or those three against Sanity. I also hope Black gets another real opponent by then, maybe even against someone from the UK tourney. Speaking of which, how would everyone feel about the UK Championship being defended at every Takeover until they get their own show? Adding another title match to these things would really make things feel a bit more special, Bate and Gallagher would've been sick at a Takeover.

That would be cool. Should have had Dunne attack him after the match with Jack.

Kind of sucks that only two of the Takeover matches will have build. But then again, there's still 2 weeks. Unless they announced it on NXT and I missed it, the wikipedia page contains a spoiler about the tag title match.

I feel like the NXT title match will end up being a Triple Threat match for the first time(?), which I wouldn't mind. Can't see Itami or Roddy taking a loss, so I'm curious to see how the result will go down if it does happen.

As for guys like Drew, Ohno, Black and Almas, I can see either Ohno or Drew headlining on SummerSlam weekend - or possibly together. I'll only want to see those two or Black face one another if it's a N1C match at the least.

Any combination of Roddy, Black, Ohno, McIntyre, Almas and Itami facing one another makes for some really cool match-ups to look forward to.

Ohno has had a lackluster return so far.  Keep forgetting he's there.

Same tbh. I don't really care if Ohno makes it onto the card or not. 

I think my ideal card based off the last few episodes would be something like:

 

NXT Championship

Bobby Roode vs Hideo Itami vs Roderick Strong

 

NXT Womens Championship

Asuka vs Ember Moon vs Ruby Riot vs Nikki Cross

 

NXT Tag Team Championship

Authors of Pain vs Heavy Machinery

 

#DIY vs Sanity

 

Number One Contenders Match

Drew McIntyre vs Alister Black 

 

And on the accompanying episode

 

Liv Morgan, Candice Lerae & Bianca Blair vs Billie Kay, Peyton Royce & Lacey Evans

 

Oney Lorcan vs Buddy Murphy (Murphy's return)

 

Cien Almas vs Kassius Ohno
