    NXT Takeover Special NXT TakeOver: Chicago - June 16, 2018 - Card & Discussion





    NXT Champion Aleister Black vs. Lars Sullivan



    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com
    With one swift and remarkably powerful kick, Aleister Black flattened every Superstar to cross his path on the way to becoming NXT Champion at TakeOver: New Orleans. Black’s nascent title reign, however, will be in jeopardy on Saturday, June 16, at TakeOver: Chicago when he defends the crown against a mammoth who is unlike anyone else he has faced, Lars Sullivan.

    Sullivan made that exact, thunderous point when he ambushed the champion on the May 30 edition of NXT. As Black tried to fight off Sullivan, The Dutch Destroyer uncorked his great equalizer, the Black Mass spinning heel kick. Proving to be every bit as quick as he is powerful, Sullivan shockingly caught Black’s strike before dropping him with the Freak Accident.

    The stunning scene was a rare example of Black being unable to decimate a foe with his signature move, and it sowed doubt that The Dutch Destroyer will have any better success against Sullivan when they clash for the title in The Windy City.

    Has The Freak — who prides himself on being not only a physically intense juggernaut, but also a thinking-man’s competitor inside the ring — cracked the code of Black? Or will the equally dominant Dutch Destroyer find a way to drop the behemoth — with or without Black Mass — en route to retaining NXT’s top crown?

    Don’t miss this collision between two of the black-and-yellow brand’s most feared Superstars when it goes down at NXT TakeOver: Chicago, streaming live on WWE Network on Saturday, June 16, at 8 ET/5 PT!


    NXT Tag Team Champions Undisputed ERA vs. Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch



    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com

Whether champions Roderick Strong & Kyle O’Reilly can make good on such a bold statement, however, won’t be known until the teams collide live on WWE Network on Saturday, June 16.

    The double-tough tandem of Lorcan & Burch is riding a wave of momentum after joining forces with WWE U.K. Champion Pete Dunne to defeat Strong, O’Reilly and NXT North American Champion Adam Cole in a wild Six-Man Tag Team Match on May 16. Not only were Lorcan & Burch on the winning side in that encounter, but Burch scored the deciding fall by pinning O’Reilly, a feat that Lorcan & Burch believe sealed their status as Undisputed ERA’s next challengers.

    Since forming their Brit-Am alliance last year based on the mutual respect that came out of their series of hard-hitting singles matches, Lorcan & Burch have emerged as one of the black-and-yellow brand’s grittiest duos. Yet, Undisputed ERA remain as brazen and confident as ever, claiming their loss in the Six-Man Tag Team Match was a fluke and insisting they're out of Lorcan & Burch's league.

    Will Lorcan & Burch earn their first taste of championship glory in The Windy City, or can Undisputed ERA turn back their rough-and-tumble challengers and preserve their title reign? Find out when NXT TakeOver: Chicago streams live on the award-winning WWE Network on Saturday, June 16, at 8 ET/5 PT.


    NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler vs. Nikki Cross

    Enter The Queen of Spades’ challenger at NXT TakeOver: Chicago, Nikki Cross.

    Enraged when Baszler attacked Dakota Kai after retaining the NXT Women’s Title against The Captain of Team Kick on the May 30 edition of WWE NXT, Cross rushed to the ring, roughed Baszler up, briefly stole her title and then “defeated” her in an impromptu “match” where she appointed Kai as the referee. Of course, none of this was official, but Cross celebrated as though she had just defeated the NXT Women’s Champion, while Baszler was left fuming.

    Incensed, The Queen of Spades returned the following week to tell Cross that she could put her to sleep in a heartbeat and that the only place that Cross is considered better than Baszler is in Cross’ “whacked-out little mind.” Yet, when push came to shove, Cross’ unorthodox and relentless onslaught bested Baszler’s barrage, prompting her to get the edge in yet another exchange.

    Will Baszler counter Cross’ chaotic ways when they meet at NXT TakeOver: Chicago? Or will Cross prove to be The Queen of Spades’ toughest challenger to date by ending her dominant reign as champion?

    Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa (Chicago Street Fight)



    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com
    Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa’s battles have rarely been contained by the ring, but that won’t be a concern at NXT TakeOver: Chicago — the site of #DIY’s unforgettable implosion — when the two bitter rivals square off in a Chicago Street Fight.

    The former best friends have remained at each other’s throats since Johnny Wrestling defeated the psychotic Blackheart at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans in a classic, brutal Unsanctioned Match. Ciampa, who refused to accept the loss, savagely attacked Gargano weeks later, landing his nemesis in a medical facility and a neck brace.

    From there, the self-ordained “Tommy Sports-Entertainment” created more grief for Gargano and his friends and family, most notably Johnny’s wife, Candice LeRae. Ciampa taunted LeRae in the aftermath of his heinous attack, and she even got caught in the crossfire when Gargano returned from his career-threatening injury to confront Ciampa (against LeRae’s wishes) when Ciampa sent Johnny Wrestling flying off the ring apron and into his wife.

    LeRae doesn’t support the idea of Gargano competing in the Chicago Street Fight and continuing his war with Ciampa. When Gargano received the match contract, LeRae flatly told her husband that she is “done with this,” adding that the rivalry with Ciampa has turned Gargano into everything he despises.

    What ramifications will Johnny Wrestling’s decision have on his career and his personal life? What type of mayhem is in store when Gargano and Ciampa collide in a lawless Chicago Street Fight in the same city that Ciampa betrayed Gargano one year ago? Perhaps most important of all, will Gargano still believe it was all worth it when the dust settles in Chicago?

    Ricochet vs. Velveteen Dream

    The NXT Universe has watched in amazement as Ricochet and Dream — two of NXT’s most dynamic and athletic Superstars — have gone tit-for-tat in recent weeks. The conflict began when each man sought to make a case for why he deserves to be in contention for the NXT Title. Though a freight train named Lars Sullivan derailed those hopes in the near term, Ricochet and Dream remain at odds.

    Known for performing almost supernatural feats inside the ring, Ricochet proudly claims to “make this look good” when referring to his own incomparable high-flying style. Dream, perhaps taking offense at all the attention paid to the acclaimed NXT newcomer, says that he can do anything that Ricochet can do, only better.

    Regardless of who comes out on top, the showdown between Ricochet and Velveteen Dream promises to be a can’t-miss match. See which Superstar takes the spotlight and steals the show when they collide at NXT TakeOver: Chicago, which streams live Saturday, June 16, at 8 ET/5 PT, exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network!

    Beautiful card on paper. I think people are underestimating Black/Sullivan. Should be a solid one if it’s not a Sullivan extended squash.

    Ricochet and Dream have shown to work really well together so their match should be a banger. I also still have faith Gargano/Ciampa can deliver in the sequel.

    Also about damn time Lorcan and Burch got on a Takeover! I will lose my shit if they win.

    Honestly I'm one of those who doesn't have high hopes for Black/Sullivan but I'm hoping for the best. Even if they both perform to their standards though it's still probably going to be the fourth best match on this card, because Velveteen/Ricochet, TUE/Lorcan and Burch, and of course Ciampa/Gargano look really damn good.

    It's definitively interesting to see how Black and Lars do in their match. Will Black be the underdog babyface against the dominant heel or will they go a different approach. The tag match will be great, no doubt. So happy that Burch and Locran are making a TakeOver show. Shayna Baszler vs Nikki Cross could go either way. There could be a clash of styles or they could click and have a tremendous match. Hopefully the latter. I don't see the difference in stipulations of the unsanctioned and the street fight rules match besides it's sanctioned. I can see it being a rehash of their previous match, I hope not and they do something different. Ricochet vs Dream is good on paper but their little mini match the other week had me weary of what they can do. It wouldn't surprise me if they pull off a great match.

    Love Dream/Ricochet and Undisputed Era Vs Ones and Twos; Dream and Ricochet have been great at the twitter spats and Oney and Danny have worked hard for this opportunity. Ciampa/Gargano I'm not feeling the angle as much as I was 2 months ago, but still excited to see what's likely to be another classic matches. Shayna/Cross has my attention because Cross is amazing, it's her first big singles match on a takeover and I think it's the best match they could book in this division at the moment.

    The other match, eh. They really needed to put a better build in place for Black/Lars to get me thinking it's a match on the same level as the other 4 matches, let alone make me excited to see it. The match might be good, but Lars is still early in his career and I see zero chance of a title change which effects things. I think the key for this is timing. Keep it at an under 10 minute slugfest, throwing bombs at each other and I think it'll be entertaining.

    Yeah it seems to be a great Show this weekend, but Dream vs Ricochet is going be my pick for the Match of the Night. I'm going to enjoy that Match like a good Steak that has been cooked the right way.

    I see the much needed 4th title in NXT isn't on this takeover unless it's a late addition. Weird for Cole to pull double duty last time out and this time he's not on the show.

    It is very weird that they won't have their new title defended on a TakeOver show but they are probably wanting the title to have a proper feud for it's first defence (on the UK show against Dunne) rather than a throw away match on a TakeOver. Anyway, Cole isn't needed for this show, it's fine without him.

    ed: they better not have 4 title matches on every show

    also ed: they dont even put the title on the show!

    after pulling double duty last time, no issue with cole not working this show. id imagine we see him anyway.
