Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

I'd settle for one of Io or Cole winning, but it should really be both

Forgot this was on as I’m a bit behind on NxT at the minute. Card looks really solid though so will definitely be checking it out

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

The women's title situation is interesting with Candice now being in Io's corner to help even the odds. Although they are still pushing the line that the odds are still stacked incredibly high against Io. I feel like that match is going to have an incredible amount of fuckery. Whether it be a Dakota Kai return to help even the odds or Shayna retaining through incredibly heavy handed cheating. I have noticed that Triple H tends to be very particular about wording on the match stuff for builds. The fact that they are playing up the whole "ODDS ARE STACKED AGAINST THE BABYFACE" trope signals to me that Io has a pretty decent chance of winning the title on Saturday, considering underdog booking is WWE's favorite trope to fall back on.

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

Every title should change hands on Saturday except Dream's. NXT needs a makeover.

I don't think Io has a good chance. At best, she's losing through shenanigans so that this continues to August.

Eh. I kinda have to disagree. It's possible she loses, but Dakota Kai is teasing a return very soon as well. I could see her returning on Saturday to help even the odds and cost Shayna the match.

I've long since abandoned any anticipation that they'll do the right thing with that title as long as Ronda's friends are around.

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

I think the things causing me to hesitate to agree with you are:

A) Ronda isn't going to be back for a very long time
B) RAW desperately needs a top female heel. Because Lacey Evans isn't working out. And a Becky vs Shayna feud would be compelling heading into Summerslam.

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

Of course it does, but Vince doesn't care. Mox should have erased any doubt about that today.

TakeOver: New York was the last straw for me. If Shayna was gonna be called up, it would have been then. NXT is stuck with that snoozefest and her 13-year-old voice indefinitely.

Well, based on this past week it seems they're having Becky continuing her feud with Lacey Evans. They could use the Alexa/Nikki Cross alliance to segueway from one to the other. And then there's Survivor Series where she'll probably face the Smackdown women's champion(which will probably be Bayley or Charlotte). I feel like if Shayna does get called up to feud with Becky it'll be for a WM program, in which case she'll probably be called up after Survivor Series or win as a surprise Royal Rumble entrant.
