    NXT Takeover Special NXT TakeOver: Toronto - November 19, 2016 - Card & Discussion





    NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Samoa Joe




    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com

    There is no love lost between champion and challenger, especially since TakeOver: Brooklyn II, where The King of Strong Style not only dethroned Joe, but left him with a dislocated jaw. The Samoan submission specialist, not content to let that be the lasting image of their rivalry, brutally attacked Nakamura several weeks later, sending him out of Full Sail University in an ambulance.

    Samoa Joe later obtained the medical diagnosis of the NXT Champion, revealing that The King of Strong Style would be out of action for 6-12 weeks. Not wanting to wait for his title opportunity, Joe gave NXT General Manager William Regal an ultimatum: “Bring me Nakamura, or hand me my title!” The brute then made good on a promise to destroy the NXT roster until Regal rendered a decision, bulldozing through the Ealy twins and ruining the debut of Dan Matha. After he prematurely ended a match between Buddy Murphy and Wesley Blake in ruthless fashion, Joe re-stated his demands and got an answer, but not the one he was looking for.

    Nakamura returned, carrying the NXT Championship and sporting a neck brace. However, The King of Strong Style quickly showed that he was ready to fight, ripping off the brace and charging right at his rival. The two fought through a swarm of security guards, raining blows down on each other. In the end, it was Nakamura who made the ultimate statement, leaving Joe knocked out cold in the middle of the ring with a devastating Kinshasa. After the carnage cleared, Regal made this huge rematch official for Toronto.

    Who will walk out of what is sure to be an all-out war for the NXT Championship: Shinsuke Nakamura or Samoa Joe? Find out during NXT TakeOver: Toronto, exclusively on WWE Network, Saturday, Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT!


    NXT Women's Champion Asuka vs. Mickie James



    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com

    Since her arrival in NXT last fall, Asuka has dominated the competition. Everyone from the towering Nia Jax to the spirited Bayley has fallen before The Empress of Tomorrow. Asuka has remained undefeated since her debut, and though Superstars like Liv Morgan have tried to stand up to her in recent weeks, no one has been successful in knocking the champion off her pedestal.

    With that in mind, NXT General Manager William Regal went outside the NXT roster to find Asuka’s next challenger. Mickie James is a 17-year veteran of the mat game, a five-time WWE Women’s Champion and a former Divas Champion. She’s defeated some of the greatest female competitors in WWE history, including Beth Phoenix and WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus. If anyone is ready for a war with Asuka, it’s James.

    Will Asuka succeed the toughest test of her WWE career, or will Mickie James be the one to hand The Empress of Tomorrow her first defeat? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Toronto, live and exclusively on WWE Network, Saturday, Nov. 19, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT!


    NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival vs. #DIY



    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com

    A deep dislike between these two teams has grown over the last few months, as Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa set their sights on Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder’s titles.

    The popular challengers pushed the titleholders to the limit in an epic title clash at TakeOver: Brooklyn II and have been champing at the bit for another opportunity to become NXT Tag Team Champions ever since.

    During the Aug. 31 edition of NXT, The Revival ambushed Ciampa, further fueling the animosity between these duos. However, when faced with a Second Round showdown against #DIY in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, The Revival ended up forfeiting. Dawson curiously claimed he had to back out of the match due to a serious knee injury, but this seemed to only make Gargano & Ciampa even more determined to get their hands on their foes.

    After the champions cost Gargano & Ciampa their Semifinal Match in the Dusty Classic, General Manager William Regal announced TakeOver: Toronto's 2-out-of-3-Falls Match, meaning whichever duo is the first to win two falls – whether by pinfall, submission, count-out or disqualification – takes home the NXT Tag Team Championship.

    Will Dawson & Wilder continue to cement their status as NXT's “top guys” with another successful title defense? Or will best friends Gargano & Ciampa finally achieve their goal of becoming the NXT Tag Team Champions?

    TM61 vs. Authors of Pain - Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Final



    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com
    TM61 and The Authors of Pain will clash at NXT TakeOver: Toronto in the final of the 2016 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. In the interest of keeping the playing field level, NXT General Manager William Regal has declared that Akam & Rezar’s manager, WWE Hall of Famer Paul Ellering, will be suspended high above the ring in a cage, to prevent him from meddling in this historic battle.

    Shane Thorne & Nick Miller have taken the NXT tag team division by storm since their arrival earlier this year. The world-traveled pair of Australians have hung in with the best teams NXT have to offer, including #DIY, The Revival and The Authors of Pain. TM61 have looked impressive in the Dusty Classic thus far. Their road to Toronto started with a win over Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss in the opening round. It took a unique turn in the second round.

    With Austin Aries unable to compete due to injury, Thorne took on Roderick Strong in singles action to determine which of their teams moved on. Thorne emerged victorious, setting up a showdown with SAnitY in the semifinals. TM61 was able to withstand the chaotic onslaught from Sawyer Fulton & Alexander Wolfe and the interference of Eric Young and Nikki Cross to cement their place in the final.

    The Authors of Pain have unleashed pure devastation since their arrival in NXT, and the Dusty Classic has been no different. The undefeated Akam & Rezar bulldozed over The Bollywood Boyz in the first round. With an assist from Paul Ellering, The Authors defeated No Way Jose & Rich Swann to advance to the semifinals. The monstrous duo defeated #DIY to move on to Toronto, thanks to Ellering and NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival.

    Because of Ellering’s interference, Regal considered banning the Hall of Famer from ringside, but was threatened with legal action. Taking inspiration from Mattel’s WWE Crash Cage playset, Regal found a way to keep Ellering at ringside (or above it), but unable to interject himself in the bout.

    Which teams will have their names etched on the Dusty Cup as the winners of the 2016 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Toronto, live and exclusively on WWE Network, Saturday, Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT!



    Tye Dillinger vs. Robert Roode




    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com

    Before the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic began, the glorious Superstar had approached The Perfect 10, saying that to win the tournament, he didn’t just need any partner, he needed the perfect partner. Roode also appealed to Dillinger’s close relationship with the tournament’s namesake, The American Dream. Dillinger accepted Roode’s offer to join forces, but made it clear that he was doing this “for Dusty.”

    The NXT Universe was thrilled at the prospect of the “Glorious 10” becoming a regular tag team between the yellow ropes, but their hopes were dashed with the arrival of SAnitY. Represented by Alexander Wolfe & Sawyer Fulton, the chaotic crew cornered and pummeled Dillinger. When The Perfect 10 reached out to tag in his partner, Roode exchanged a glance with SAnitY, then cinched up his robe and ditched Dillinger, leaving him to be battered by all four anarchists.

    While icing his bruised body at the WWE Performance Center one week later, cameras caught up with a furious Dillinger, who laid out a challenge to Roode for TakeOver: Toronto. Later that night on WWE Network, Roode claimed ignorance of why The Perfect 10 would have any gripes with him, saying that he only tried to make Dillinger glorious. A furious Dillinger charged the ring and got the upper hand on Roode, sending “The Glorious One” scrambling for cover.

    Will Tye Dillinger make TakeOver: Toronto the perfect night, or can Roode ensure that his record in NXT stays glorious? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Toronto, live and exclusively on WWE Network, Saturday, Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT!

    Tye Dillinger vs. Robert Roode added.

    Pretty excited the Perfect 10 gets on a TakeOver card finally. Unfortunately I can't see any other result but Roode going over and moving on to Nakamura.

    It's actually Tye Dillinger's 4th NXT Takeover (ignoring all the ones where he was on the preshow like Vs Zayn from Takeover London). This is his biggest match to date though and has the best story to it.

    Glorious Roode in Toronto though, Tye could well be fucked over as the babyface in that situation.

    I dunno. Tye's Canadian as well AND has been over in NXT for a while. At worst, you have a split.

    Yeah I think the face versus heel dynamic will be fine to be honest.

    As much as Roode is getting these huge reactions I haven't been convinced by him in the ring. Is he limited?

    As much as I'd love for Tye to get equal love being from Canada, Roode may just get a bit more as he played up that whole Team Canada shtick for years.

    It depends on what you mean by "limited?" He's not AJ Styles, but he's great working his own style. Think a methodical style between Triple H and Randy Orton.

    "Limited" is not the right word. Roode is pretty much well-rounded in everything except for high-flying flippy shit, but he's not exactly outstanding in anything either. To put it another way, he's never going to drag a match down but he's also never going to carry an opponent to a classic match either. He's solid in that you can pretty much guarantee that he's never going to be responsible for dragging a match quality down.

    Interesting, I wonder how he'll progress in NXT especially if he is lined up to face Nakamura soon.

    To be fair he was on the Takeover: The End card, but it is nice to see him going into a Takeover card with a feud that has some substance. I see Roode going over but I already love the context of this feud (Bobby claiming Tye begged to tag with him when it was Roode that originally proposed the team is some of the best heel work I've seen all year, and 2016 has been a strong year for heel work) and they can make it look like Tye has a shot to pull it off easily.

    Should be a split, hot crowd for these two.

    Hey, if Roode can rattle Full Sail's cage, he can get booed anywhere. Heel of the year for sure.

    Just two incredible tag matches to add to the show. If Shinsuke can deliver this has show of the year potential.

    Seriously, this is an amazing card. TM61 and Authors of Pain is a suitable final for the Dusty Classic. They were great together at the house show I was at. Should be a good final. Authors are on a role right now with fun matches.

    DIY/Revival 2/3 falls is going to be off the chain.

    A tad disappointed in this year's Dusty Classic. Last year, it had the sense of intrigue of whether Joe and Balor will work together and with this year's we finally get a sense of intrigue with TM61 possibly defeating the Authors. If Swann and Jose could bring the fight to the Authors, maybe the Australian underdogs have a chance.

    Joe and Nakamura isn't going to have a sense of sportsmanship this time. It's going to be a fight!

    Mickie nerves is a great thing to have, makes you at ease when it's time to perform. I love this whole card, but tonight I'm going to be pulling my hair out because I like Asuka, but I might like Mickie even more.

    I have very little interest in James/Asuka, there's 0 chance James wins so it's gonna be hard to buy into any nearfalls she has.

    I've got incredibly high expectations for Revival/DIY tonight.

    I'm much more interested in the match from a "how will it be" perspective than a "who wins" perspective.

    Yeah, Asuka/James might be the match I'm looking forward to the least. No real intrigue, probably the most predictable. It's going to have to take a lot to build a story in the match to make it something to buy into. At least with matches that seem easy to predict like AOP/TM61 or Roode/Dillinger, it had a good feud or stipulation to throw you off track or want to watch.
