It has been 21 years since we last saw this event. It finally returns in the form of an NXT TakeOver event. There was a recent announcement as well that it will be a complete throwback to what it used to be including music, set up, graphics, and more. So, what else will they have in store for us on June 7th, 2020?
Mia Yim, Tegan Nox, & Shotzi Blackheart vs. Candice LeRae, Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez:
Amp: Oh, this one is tough to pick. The team of LeRae, Kai, and Gonzalez are the ones coming in with more momentum. They will have the upper hand in this one. But, they are not the ones that need the win. Winners - Nox, Blackheart, and Yim.
Chris: I think the Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez heel reign if you can even call it that, is over. LaRae on the other hand maybe up-and-coming but has not yet made her huge wave. Blackheart, Nox, and Yim have all put in their work and are ready for a huge pay-per-view win. Winners - Nox, Blackheart, and Yim.
Finn Balor vs. Damian Priest:
Amp: This could be in the running for the match of the night. It is also really just the start of this feud. Priest should control most of the match due to his strength and size. But, Balor will outsmart him and come out with the win.
Chris: Finn Balor has proved himself over and over again on both sides of the roster. Though Balor hasn’t seen much action in the ring lately I doubt he’ll miss a beat and take care of Priest with ease. Winner - Finn Balor
Tommaso Ciampa vs. Karrion Kross
Amp: Yes, Ciampa is a major player in NXT. But, Kross has been on a warpath since coming into the company a few weeks back. Plus, he has a little extra help on the outside helping him. Winner - Karrion Kross
Chris: Kross has been the madman running around NXT for the last few weeks, but I don’t think he’s any match for Ciampa. Winner - Tommaso Ciampa
NXT North American Championship: Keith Lee (c) vs. Johnny Gargano:
Amp: This is a tough match to call. Gargano has great momentum going into this match. But, just like his wife, he will fall short in this match up. Lee will end up overpowering him for the win. Winner - Keith Lee
Chris: I love me some Keith Lee action but he’s held the North American title for quite some time now and with Gargano going heel this makes sense and is quality television. Winner - Johnny Gargano
NXT Women's Championship: Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Io Shirai:
Amp: These three will put on a great performance for all of us at home. The Queen always comes with her best, but she won't even factor into the end of this match. Ripley will end up pinning Shirai and sending her off to the main roster of WWE. The feud will continue between Flair and Ripley. Winner - Rhea Ripley
Chris: This match consists of three phenomenal woman superstars, but two have already found their bearings. I think they’ll want to keep Charlotte on the main roster and have her stop bouncing back and forth. Ripley on the other hand could be another Matt Riddle situation and call her up to Monday or Friday. I think Shirai wins and remains on NXT. Winner - Io Shirai
NXT Championship: Adam Cole (c) vs. Velveteen Dream (Backlot Brawl):
Amp: This will be a fun one. Cole has been champion for a little over a year and this is Dream's last chance at the title as long as Cole holds onto it. He has deserved a run with the title. But Adam Cole has a few friends that will help him out in this one. Winner - Adam Cole
Chris: Cole has had the title for far too long and is another guy we keep hearing rumors about. I could see Cole losing the championship, and Undisputed Era going their separate ways. Cole to the main roster, maybe Strong too. Winner - Velveteen Dream
