OFFICIAL RACIST


Tonight is an NXT Takeover show. Philadelphia. There are a lot of matches to run down, so lets get started!!



Johnny Gargano vs Andrade "Cien" Almas (w/ Zelina Vega) for the NXT Championship

After losing a bunch, Johnny managed to start stringing wins together in order to challenge Almas for the title. Last week he also laid Almas out (after beating Velveteen Dream). However, will he manage to pull out the big one here? Or will he fall to Almas? We could also have noted awful person and kitten hater, and guy who punches good dogs Ciampa show up and ruin Gargano's chances at the title!



Aleister Black vs Adam Cole (Extreme Rules)

After Aleister Black beat Adam Cole a little while back, Cole has wanted vengeance. He managed to get his wish a few weeks ago when he screwed Black out of becoming #1 contender for the NXT Championship. That has put Black and Cole on a collision course, which will culminate tonight in an Extreme Rules match. Will Cole manage to beat Black in a SINGLES match, or will Black's dominant singles streak continue?



Shayna Baszler vs Ember Moon for the NXT Women's Championship

In quite possibly one of the oddest matches of the night, we have Ember Moon defending her title against Shayna, who has decided to make it a hobby to attack people and choke them out. Even outside of matches. If Ember loses, she'll look like a paper champion. If Shayna loses (clean), she'll lose a significant amount of her aura. However, there is a third option waiting in the wings. A disqualification. Shayna could go too hard and cause herself to get disqualified. There is also another possibility in that Kairi Sane returned recently, and she's probably seeking revenge against Shayna for putting her on the shelf. What better way than to cost Shayna the NXT Women's Title?



Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby Fish (The Undisputed Era) vs Authors of Pain for the NXT Tag Team Titles

There wasn't much build put into this match outside of AOP beating Street Profits in a #1 Contenders Match. This may be AOP's swan song in NXT. We'll see, I guess!



Kassius Ohno vs Velveteen Dream

In a match that has very little in the way of build (because it was recently announced), we'll see Kassius Ohno go up against Velveteen Dream. After a very impressive performance (although he still lost) last Takeover by Dream, will he start to string together victories and get people to say his name? Or will he fall to Kassius Ohno?

NO GRAPHIC FOR PRESHOW STUFF

Pre Show: The year end awards are presented. Joe will appear on the panel. No one cares about anything else.

STOP DOING HEROIN

I still think the women's match will be a repeat of Zayn/Owens, where Shayna just beats Ember to death and wins the belt by TKO. That will get way more over than the awful "DQ for kicking too much rear end" finish that helps nobody.

Or Cena/Lesnar, where it's a 15 minute squash.

This show is going to rule. I'm basing that not on the card but by the fact every NXT TakeOver show always ends up ruling.

Is there a reason they didn't find a way to get Lars Sullivan on this card, they seemed really high on him so its weird not to see him on a Takeover.

He was planned to wrestle Roderick Strong on the preshow and then things changed.

They're actually showing some pre taped segments from the preshow regarding the year end awards thing. Funny to hear renee's "back to you, panel" and then nothing

Terrible chants so far: Enzo Amore, some podcast, XFL, He Hate Me. Philly is a hell city but at least not as bad as Boston or Chicago I guess
