Shinsuke Nakamura made his return to NXT television on this week’s episode to put the boots to Samoa Joe to reignite their feud. They did so with a burly brawl that ended with the NXT champion laying out the man he took the title from.
Well, on a YouTube video released after yesterday’s episode of NXT, General Manager William Regal announced that the two men will compete at the next big NXT live special the night before Survivor Series next month in Toronto.
So after a long wait, it is now official: Nakamura vs. Joe is the main event of NXT TakeOver: Toronto on Nov. 19, 2016, at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This is the second consecutive TakeOver these two have headlined.
The only other match official for the card is the final of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.
