Tomorrow NXT presents another NXT special NXT Takeover The End it will be unbelievable based on the past specials, I will provide a rundown of the entire down in addition to my thoughts.
Andrade “Cien” Almas vs. Tye Dillinger
This will be very interesting encounter due to the fact that very little is known about Almas. WWE were showing vignettes for a couple of weeks now with limited footage, of Almas wearing a mask and showcasing his Lucha Libre skills set. I have read a lot about Andrade “Cien” Almas when the company signed him months ago and he was a huge star, in Mexico for AAA not to mention he is young.
On the other hand, Tye Dillinger has been on quite a winning streak. With all his momentum that Tye Dillinger, has going for him he asked for a match on Twitter at NXT TakeOver The End to showcase his skills. Therefore NXT General Manager William Regal granted his wish, and he scheduled a match for The Perfect 10 putting him up against the newest Luchador that has joined the WWE. I feel this is an opportunity for Andrade “Cien” Almas to make a name for himself in his WWE debut.
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Austin Aries
This match has the potential to steal the show in opinion between two of the biggest signings in NXT history, they will clash for the first time ever at NXT TakeOver: The End These two former free agents shocked the world when they joined NXT when they arrived earlier this year, with both men making their debuts at TakeOver: Dallas during WrestleMania Week.
Austin Aries made his NXT debut a successful one with a big win over Baron Corbin, even though I was widely disappointed with the match. On the hand Shinsuke Nakamura and Sami Zayn delivered an instant classic it has been a long time, that I have been blown away with a match and this was it. Nakamura defeated Zayn and the crowd couldn’t get enough of these two and gave them a well deserved standing ovation.
I feel that since Nakamura arrival I believe that Austin Aries has been flying under the radar because Nakamura is one of the best wrestlers in the world. The unlikely duo teamed up to face the former NXT Tag Team Champions Blake and Murphy. They made quick work of Blake and Murphy which is no surprise because the former tag champs have fallen so hard and fall.
However a week after Austin Aries was all business and he stated that he will no longer fly under the radar anymore. “The Greatest Man That Ever Lived” stated that he was going to be the next NXT Champion, but Nakamura had an issue with that statement. Therefore NXT General Manger could sense there was tense between these two therefore he had no other choice but to make a match at NXT TakeOver: The End. An interesting stat heading into this contest is that both Nakamura and Aries are undefeated. Both these competitors will look like million dollars but there is no way in hell that Shinsuke Nakamura will lose.
NXT Tag Team Championships
The Revival vs. American Alpha
I am really looking forward to this match between American Alpha as they defend their NXT Championship against The Revival. Since losing the titles the former NXT Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder have been irate. The Revival has been in locked in and has run through each tag team in their way. They are locked in Dash and Wilder made it clear that they are focused, and are not stopping them until they regain the NXT Tag Team Championships.
At the same time American Alpha Jason Jordan and Chad Gable have been very dominating since winning the NXT Tag Team Championships. Then The Revival came out to watch the champions after American Alpha won. Alpha American challenged Dash and Dawson to get in the ring and fight, but The Revival backed off as true heels would.
NXT Women’s Championship
Nia Jax vs. Asuka
This is going to be a really intriguing match for the NXT Women’s title and it will be a very difficult to predict the outcome of this match. Ever since Asuka shocked the world she took the NXT Women’s Champion in impressive fashion from the beloved champion Bayley. Traditionally Bayley should be in line for her rematch for the Women’s Championship. However standing in her way was Nia Jax she is a hybrid because wrestling fans have never seen a wrestler with her dominance.
Nia Jax was in complete control and put a serious beating on Bayley, in their rematch this has caused her to be unable to compete in the rematch. Therefore NXT General Manager William Regal had no choice but to put Nia Jax in a triple threat match against Alexa Bliss and Carmella, to crown a new number one contender for the NXT Women’s Championship.
Nia Jax was victorious with ease, with a devastating leg drop on Bliss therefore Jax was crowd the new one contender. I believe that the WWE has done an incredible in building up this feud in my opinion. Now I expect Auska to win and to have a rematch with Bayley but I wouldn’t be shocked if Jax was crowned the new NXT Women’s Championship.
Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe
I cannot wait for this main event the ending of an epic feud history will be made on June 8 at NXT TakeOver: The End. The NXT Champion Samoa Joe defends the title against former champion Finn Bálor in NXT’s first Steel Cage Match.
These two have bad blood after going 0-2 in TakeOver matches against Finn Balor. The Samoan submission machine did the impossible and broke Bálor’s historic 292-day reign as NXT Champion on April 21 at a Live Event in Lowell, Massachusetts, far from the bright lights of WWE Network. Since losing the title, Bálor hasn’t been the same and he has been laser focused on his former title.
General Manager William Regal made an announcement during a contract signing at the WWE Performance Center that was broadcast on Facebook Live just three days, after a wild brawl broke out between the two at a live event in Portland Oregon. This brawl was so bad that the entire NXT roster had to clear out of the locker room in order to separate the fierce rivals. According to Regal, a steel cage match was done to guarantee an ending to this the rivalry.
This trilogy will mark the third consecutive championship match between Joe and Bálor at an NXT TakeOver, and the fourth duel between the two Superstars over NXT’s top prize. This is an easy predication for me Samoa Joe will walk at victorious; this will cause Finn Balor to finally come to the main roster which is long overdue in my opinion.
