Possible Spoiler: Adam Cole not competing at NXT Takeover: Chicago?

For those who don't like spoilers, click away. Adam Cole the newly crowned North American champion may not be defending his title at NXT Takeover: Chicago. The set of taping all the way up until said Takeover showed no mention of Cole defending his title. They could always set it up in video packages but honestly who knows? The card right now is set at 5 matches and that's usually how many a takeover gets, so wonder if he'll get on. What are you guys thoughts of this ? And if Cole does defend his title, who do you think it should be against?

It's also worth noting that EC3 doesn't have a match either.

UPDATE: According to WrestleTalkTV (don't know how legit they are) Adam Cole is facing Pete Dunne at Takeover: Chicago, no titles on the line.

Re: Possible Spoiler: Adam Cole not competing at NXT Takeover: Chicago?

Unless they have a good excuse (like he is injured), then I would be completely shocked if they don't have him defend the title at Chicago. It is a brand new title that they are trying to get over, It would be stupid to keep it off tv already.

In terms of who I would want him to compete against? (Out of people not already on the card), there aren't really any babyfaces left. Fabian Aichner is like the only babyface I can think of that isn't on the card. That would be good match quality but would be very uninteresting. Maybe debut someone like Keith Lee? I have no idea...looks to me they don't have a match lined up though which I think is really weird.

Now that could be an idea, have Cole cut a heelish promo to open the show and have him set up an open challenge for Keith Lee to debut. I don't think that's too far fetched of an idea but is it likely either? Not sure.

That would suck. He is an asset to any card.

Him not defending the title at a TakeOver is just plain stupid. He has to defend it for me.

They only ever have 5 matches on a takeover, however surely he has to be on the card? I hope they add him v Dunne.

So basically what everyone was saying about an NXT midcard title being too much for them to handle was true?

If Cole ends up not having a match, then yeah definitely.

Re: Possible Spoiler: Adam Cole not competing at NXT Takeover: Chicago?

he's going to be in an unsanctioned match for the NXT title vs EC3 where Ciampa and Gargano fight until they like each other and the match will be a tag match for the USA title and Gargano will win the title and Ciampa vs Gargano forever

It's weird how the whole Undisputed Era don't have Takeover matches, yet Shayna does, and they're all working the UK shows 2 days after Takeover.
