As the heat and humidity continue to heat up, so does the card for NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn. Three new matches have been added to the event which we know will only add more entertainment and excitement to this special event! These matches are as follows:
Bobby Roode vs Andrade “Cien” Almas
After picking up the W in his match against Angelo Dawkins, Bobby Roode came out to congratulate Almas. Not because of the win, as it was – if anything – mediocre, but the match Almas will have at NXT TakeOver. His opponent will be none other than Bobby Roode himself. You see (according to Roode), NXT TakeOver needs to be more sophisticated and of course, more glorious. 15,000 people are not paying to see Almas, but are paying to see him. With Roode now being apart of NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn, this night will be glorious!
Austin Aries vs No Way Jose
After the news of Roode’s match with Almas, Austin paid a visit to General Manager William Regal. With NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn being a special event, how special could it be if “The Greatest Man of All Time” isn’t on the card? A slew of NXT’s hottest talents all have opponents, but not him. William Regal agreed with him and had the perfect opponent for Aries. Someone Aries knows very well, someone he’s been avoiding for quite some time: No Way Jose. Aries corrected Regal, as he has not been avoiding him but ignoring him since No Way Jose is not in the same league as Aries. At NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn, he’s going to show William Regal why.
Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa vs The Revival’s Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson for the NXT Tag Team Championship
William Regal had met with the tag team in regards to the current standing of their relationship since their match against each other at last week’s Cruiserweight Classic. The reason being is Regal scheduled a title match against the current NXT Tag Team Champions Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn. The men were thrilled by the news and reassured Regal that they are still brothers and are ready to take on The Revival at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn.
If I wasn’t already excited for NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn, these matches would have done it for me. SummerSlam weekend is just getting better! If there any additional matches added to this incredible event, I will certainly let you all know!
