Greg DeMarco’s Take
Based on these tapings, I think we are getting:
- Adam Cole vs. Roderick Strong
- Velveteen Dream vs. Dominik Dijakovic
- Shayna BAszler vs. Io Shirai
We have more tapings before Takeover: San Jose, so some of this could happen on an NXT broadcast. It does seem like we’re also headed towards War Raiders vs. Forgotten Sons, and possibly Roddy Strong vs. Matt Riddle is Cole gets a rematch at Takeover with Gargano. No one was really set up for Gargano on this taping, but that could be taken care of at a taping in May.
