I'm only interested in Cole/Gargano and maybe Street Profits/UE but may consider the North American title match.

Re: NXT TakeOver: Toronto Discussion Thread

A different kind of Takeover card, but a lot to look forward to.

Io vs. Candice could be a lot of fun. And while Iíve been underwhelmed by MiaísNXT run, her best opponent has been Shayna.

The tag match, the 3 way, and the main event all have the potential to be great.

I hope the night ends with TUE holding all the gold and the music of a certain Psycho Killer playing in the arena.

Probably the least hyped I have been for Takeover since... the last Takeover tbh, NXT has been quite boring since New York. As always, I expect most matches to deliver (except for the Shayna match, like it is tradition), but I feel that the build ups haven't been very good and there is no hype. Like: Why is UE the ones challenging to the Profits? They haven't won any match or have been on a roll lately? Mia is challenging Shayna, but correct me if I am wrong I don't think she hasn't had a match since the Takeover 25 preshow. Gargano has been MIA (yes, I know he is injured, but they could have done more), it is a cold Takeover.

Itís been reported in the last couple weeks that Ciampaís surgery was minimally invasive and that on WWE own internal injury list, they had him pegged for a return date in mid August. I donít know if he can get physical right away, but the talk is out there.

NXT desperately needs Ciampa.

Haven't really dug Cole/Gargano, the matches have been good, but damn, 3 straight Takeovers of the same shit is tiresome. Cole/Ciampa would be an interesting clash of characters.

What are predictions for the third fall? The theory I keep hearing is a loser leaves NXT match, but that doesn't really make much sense.

If NXT is going live and 2 hours I donít see anyone of value getting called up now.

My guess for awhile has been a ladder match.
