WWE’s developmental brand, NXT, makes its way to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn just one night before SummerSlam finds its way into the arena. It should be a fun night with six exciting matches to keep the crowd that traveled from all over world very entertained.
Ember Moon makes her long-awaited debut after weeks of mysterious promos teasing her appearance. She looks to make an immediate impact in the women’s division against Billie Kay.
Bobby Roode makes his Takeover debut and he should be a big player in the NXT Championship picture. He faces off against Andrade “Cien” Almas, who is also looking to make a push in the title picture.
Bayley looks to recapture the NXT Women’s Championship when she faces off against the woman who took it from her in April, Asuka. These two had an amazing battle in Dallas, Texas and they should have an even better one in Brooklyn.
Samoa Joe defends his NXT Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura in what could be his swansong in NXT. Joe is a dangerous monster in the ring, but Nakamura is an experienced veteran that can certainly hold his own with his Strong Style in the ring.
