If Io loses, the women's division is destroyed beyond any rebuilding. It's a permanent dark age. The situation is that dire. I don't like her chances right now though. Io has already pinned Shayna and the June TakeOver is filler. The most I'm hoping for is that Io at least is protected so she can get her ultimate triumph later, but right now, I'm skeptical she'll win.

It's not that I'm disputing
Cole's popularity, it's more that I don't think there's much for NXT to gain anymore with a Cole title reign. It'll be fine, but not much different from what we've seen from Undisputed since they arrived. It would basically just be a retread of last year, with some new features added but essentially the same.
The likely course is that Cole and Undisputed will run wild for a while and then be stopped by Matt Riddle.
Whereas putting it on Dream or even Riddle would bring something new to the table. Dream is just unique no matter what he does. Riddle could have some hard hitting fights with guys like Dijak or Keith Lee.
Cole? What would be different? Maybe his run with TUE would force some truly weird alliances on the babyface side throughout NXT. That would work, but somehow, I just don't think that happens.
