Since the kickoff of the WWE Network, NXT has already delivered two amazing Pay-Per-Views (or “Big Events” or whatever we call them now), Arrival (February 27th) and Takeover (May 29th). Continuing to deliver with the excellence, the upcoming generation of the main WWE roster will step it up once again. Live on the WWE Network next Thursday, September 11th, NXT will bring its next big show, Takeover 2.
There will be several opportunities for a show-stealing match to happen, but one of the bigger sources of excitement for this card comes in the form of a debut. KENTA, who may or may not be capitalizing every letter in his name anymore, will have the iconic Ric Flair personally usher him into the company. Will the other two big recent signings, Fergal Devitt and Kevin Steen, get any on-screen time as well? The buzz surrounding these great wrestlers is just icing on the cake to what already is a can’t miss night. Here’s the lineup…
– Adrian Neville (c) vs. Sami Zayn vs. Tyson Kidd vs. Tyler Breeze
NXT Tag-Team Championship
– The Ascension (c) vs. Sin Cara and Kalisto
NXT Women’s Championship
– Charlotte (c) vs. Bayley
Hair vs. Hair Match
– Sylvester Lefort vs. Enzo Amore
– Mojo Rawley vs. Bull Dempsey
