Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

I'm expecting a few main roster cameos and flashbacks to previous takeovers in the bumper segments.

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

From my point of view...

-Adam Cole needs to win.
-Shayna will probably retain and if she does lose then she will probably get a rematch at a future takeover.
-Velveteen Dream retains.
-Street Profits NEED to win this after how long they have been there. If not then they may as well go look for another job because they wont get as good of an opportunity once on the main roster.
-Riddle beats Strong. The match that i'm looking forward to the most.

Supporting Charlotte and Nikki Bella!

Other favorites: Lacey Evans, AJ Styles, Elias, Carmella, R-Truth, Braun Strowman and Charly Caruso.

My predictions are Gargano, Io, Street Profits, Velveteen Dream & Matt Riddle.

Looking forward to Velveteen/Breeze the most, just want to see Breeze wrestle with no restrictions.

Seth Rollins / AJ Styles / Cesaro / The Revival / Drew McIntyre / EC3
Finn Balor / Andrade / Randy Orton / Buddy Murphy / Chad Gable / Dolph Ziggler / Jinder Mahal
Johnny Gargano / Roderick Strong / Dominik Dijakovic / Breezango / Travis Banks / Angel Garza / Fabian Aichner
Drew Gulak / Akira Tozawa / Lince Dorado / Tony Nese / Ariya Daviari
Tessa Blanchard / Billie Kay / Mandy Rose / Dana Brooke / Io Shirai / Natalya / Ember Moon / Vanessa Bourne / Isla Dawn

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

Video package is up for the Shirai/Baszler match. Io absolutely has to win this match. They are putting it all on the line here.

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

This TakeOver is a real make or break moment for me as far as NXT goes. It's the only WWE program I still watch, but it's been in a slump and I'm losing interest. Only Dream has been REALLY good this year. The rest of it hasn't been something like I feel I need to go out of my way to see. There are other things I could be doing on Wednesday nights (and particularly if AEW comes to Wednesday this fall). I stick with NXT because the investment is usually returned, but I'm teetering.

Triple H has the potential to give it a much-needed makeover tomorrow night by having Io and Cole win. If he does, I'm staying. If he doesn't, I don't see too much of a reason to. The main event scene badly needs a shakeup and I'm at the point where I can't stand seeing Shayna's ugly ass and her two GEEKS anymore. She's at Triple H reign of terror and Jinder Mahal channel changing heat for me at this point.

Hoping he does the right things tomorrow.

Didn't Keith Lee pick up a knee injury or something? He was feuding with Dijakovic and then went off the radar while Dijak started targeting the NA Title.

Anyway, looking forward to this Takeover. Speaks to the strength of NXT's booking and roster when they can essentially pull a Takeover out of their ass and it'll likely be better than what the main roster pulls out for major PPVs with lots of time to hype and build up.

The four way ladder match should be a fun way to open the show. Undisputed/Burch & Lorcan will likely carry the action, but Street Profits have been impressive lately too. And if the Forgotten Sons can't impress in this one, cut them. They're so bad.

Riddle vs. Strong will be a really interesting clash of styles. Pretty clear Riddle gets it, another big Takeover match for the resume before he settles in to main events.

Shirai made me interested in her match with that brutal kendo stick attack. Badass Io is best Io.

Echo the sentiment that it's too soon for another Gargano vs. Cole match, especially with how definitive the 2/3 Falls match was. Should be a high quality match but eh.

All about Dream vs. Breeze here. Tyler is my favourite NXT alum, and I'm so glad he's getting a spotlight again. Imagine if he wins?!?!?!

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

Kinda glad that this TakeOver will get it’s own weekend. Anyone else think that they’ll tape two episodes of the weekly show beforehand instead of one this time due to their taping schedule? I’m pulling for Cole, but I think Garagano will win. It’ll be a great match either way. As I’ve said before, I’d like to see all of TUE with gold heading into War Games this November, with all belts on the line in that match. Maybe Roddy can get the NA belt in Toronto and they could all close the show holding up the gold at that TakeOver in August.

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

I'm conflicted on Gargano vs. Cole. On the one hand, Cole has been eating big losses recently and he's certainly good enough to be champion. But also I don't like the idea of them turning Gargano into Sasha Banks 2.0 (namely they can win the belt, but cannot defend it successfully). So IDK who I'd prefer to win honestly.

Io should absolutely win, no doubt in my mind. Not that she will win necessarily, Triple H is obsessed with Shayna and her two little friends seemingly, but Io winning makes by far the most sense.

Again I'm conflicted on who I want to see win the Dream vs. Tyler match.

Riddle should win his match.

I'd like to see the Street Profits win the tag belts honestly.
