The card keeps growing. We are just over a week away from NXT Takeover and that means things are starting to come together in a hurry. This time the show is going to be a little bit different though as there are only so many wrestlers available due to a Coronavirus outbreak. NXT still has a pretty deep bench though and some of them are going to be able to make the show. Two more of those names have been confirmed.
One area where NXT tends to thrive is building up a feud in the midcard. They have figured out how to take people and a story with little business in a featured role and make it into something fans want to see. That has become a staple of Takeover and it is what we are likely to see again this time around. This one is in the form of a grudge match which has been built up over the last several weeks.
WWE has announced that Kushida will meet the Velveteen Dream at Takeover on October 4. This comes after the two have traded attacks on each other, beginning with Dream attacking Kushida following a loss in a triple threat match in August. Kushida attacked him as well, followed by Dream interfering in the Gauntlet Eliminator, ultimately leading to Kushida’s elimination from the match. This will be their first ever singles match.
The two have had some issues. Check out how we got here:
Opinion: This is the kind of match that the show is going to need as there are only so many options available for the card. Kushida is a rather talented wrestler and Dream is someone who has been treated as a big deal for a long time now. It makes sense to put this feud, which has been built up, on the card for the sake of almost guaranteeing a good if not very good match.
