It’s no surprise that NXT TakeOver is always an excellently stacked card and this one is shaping up to be no different.

NXT’s General Manager William Regal announced at the beginning of this week’s addition of NXT that since Bayley was not cleared to have a rematch against Asuka from the NXT Womens Championship that a Triple Threat Match would determine a new #1 Contender.  These women would be Carmella, Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax.  This Triple Threat match was scheduled as the main event for the evening, but before I release the results of that match, let me get into the details of the other match announced for NXT TakeOver that same evening.

YES!  You are seeing that photo correctly.  No need to adjust your computer screen or clean your glasses (if you wear them) because Shinsuke Nakamura will face Austin Aries at NXT TakeOver!  The King of Strong Style vs Greatness.  William Regal liked the sight of them as a tag team and also as opponents, so he booked the match!  As much as I am excited to see American Alphas vs The Revival again, this match between Nakamura and Aries is the match I am looking forward to the most.  Ugh, it’s going to be EPIC!

Now to announce the #1 Contender from the Triple Threat match.  Carmella, Alexa Bliss, and Nia Jax really fought tooth and nail for the spot, but it was ultimately Nia Jax who was triumphant and will be facing Asuka for the NXT Womens Championship at NXT TakeOver.
