Just two months ago, NXT sold out the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York for their largest live event in the WWE developmental territory’s short history. It was at that point that the biggest audience to ever watch NXT saw what some of us have known for a while now: NXT is one of the best things in professional wrestling right now. This month, NXT is back in their usual home at Full Sail University, but that doesn’t mean this special is any less important. For the first time in the history of professional wrestling, a Pay Per View (essentially) will be headlined by a match between two women, as Sasha Banks and Women’s Champion Bayley look to top their incredible match from Brooklyn in a ground-breaking 30 minute Iron Man Match. Also, we’ll see the semifinals and finals of the Dusty Rhodes Memorial Tag Team Classic, and the in-ring debut of Asuka! If you want to know more about what you’ll see on tonight’s show, read on!
Apollo Crews vs Tyler Breeze
Apollo Crews has been everything he was promised to be before his debut at NXT TakeoverL Brooklyn: a powerhouse with surprising agility and a smile as wide as all outdoors. And thanks to Tyler Breeze’s continual demands for some “real” competition from General Manager William Regal, Crews is the next opponent for Prince Pretty. Once again, it seems like Breeze’s arrogance may cost him, but his veteran smarts might be enough to allow him to sneak past this NXT rookie. It will likely take a portion of, or even all of his cunning to accomplish that feat, though, as Crews looks to continue his early dominance in NXT. On paper, this seems like another in a mounting list of losses for Breeze, and one can’t help but wonder how many high-profile matches he can afford to lose before he snaps completely? And more importantly, who will the world-famous male model be wearing when he walks down the aisle tonight?
