With less than a month to go until their next live special, NXT finally got around to making a couple matches official for TakeOver: Orlando on their latest weekly episode.
In the women’s division, undefeated champion Asuka will put her title on the line against another undefeated star – Ember Moon. General Manager William Regal gave Moon the match after she defeated Billie Kay in a match also designed to get her finisher, the top-rope somersault stunner dubbed the Eclipse, over as being near-lethal.
On the men’s side, we’re still waiting to find out who will carry the NXT championship into Orlando, but we do know who the challenger will be. Shinsuke Nakamura will get his contractual rematch after his loss at San Antonio, and face the winner of next week’s match between current titleholder Bobby Roode and Kassius Ohno.
In addition to those two bouts, the April 1 show will most likely feature a tag title match – they’ve clearly been building to a Triple Threat between current champs Authors of Pain against The Revival and #DIY – and a match or two from the SAnitY vs. Tye Dillinger & friends feud.
NXT will have their work cut out for them trying to top last year’s WrestleMania weekend event, where Nakamura and Sami Zayn were the talk of the WWE after their sensational contest.
What do you think of the first two matches they have made official? What else would you like to see added to the card?
