Re: NXT TakeOver: Toronto Discussion Thread
I have to tell you, this is the first time I'm seriously considering not watching a TakeOver. I know they've always been good but I'm just not feeling any of this. I haven't watched NXT for the past two months either. I've really hated the direction it's taken.
As far as predictions go...
- Io beats Candice, obviously. What a horrendous way for her to have turned heel. Should be a decent match.
- Street Profits look like they're getting called up, which means O'Reilly and Fish win the titles again. Adam Cole retains. And that also means, unfortunately, that Pete Dunne is likely getting pinned by Strong and Dream is losing the title. If TUE is going to make good on its word of holding all the gold, it's now or never, and I think it's now.
- Which brings us to the women's title match. I almost always have to bet on Shayna's bizarre booking keeping her alive, but if it's going to be a big night for TUE, and I think it will be, there needs to be a babyface moment or it will be a clean sweep for the heels. That means that this is that babyface moment. It's really a shame. Mia Yim is absolutely the least interesting and worst choice to take the title from Shayna, but this horrendous reign needs ending. It just goes to show how catastrophic Shayna's run has been. Mia Yim is in no way going to be the one to revive that division's fortunes but at least the worst will have passed and hopefully it can finally move on. Yikes.
