Another great looking NXT Takeover is just a couple hours away, although this card does look a little light compared to previous Takeovers. People have speculated like crazy that “The End” tag line indicated something more in light of the Brand split announcement, but it looks more and more that it’s referring to the end of the Samoa Joe/Finn Balor feud. WWE is great at creating great speculation on nothing things.
This could be the swan song in Developmental for Finn Balor, and I don’t think Samoa Joe is all that far behind him. I would expect nothing less than a highly memorable ware between these two. Their matches have been outstanding so far and I love putting them in a steel cage, although lack of blood always takes away from this type of match.
Shinsuke Nakamura and Austin Aries should be great too. A dream match of sorts, these are the two biggest recent names to come into NXT. I think we are also nearing the end (see what I did there?) of Nakamura in developmental. With the brand split coming soon you figure a man with his worldwide appeal would be great one of the two live shows.
I’m sure we’ll have plenty of news coming of of these huge event tonight! Stay tuned to BDARadio.com!
