Number one with a twist. We are less than two weeks away from NXT Takeover: In Your House and that means things are going to be picking up in a hurry. With so little time left to go before the show, NXT needs to get ready for everything that they have planned for the event. That means setting up the big matches, one of which they have set up with an added detail.
This week on NXT, General Manager William Regal announced that Adam Cole will be defending the NXT Title against Velveteen Dream for a second time in the main event of Takeover: In Your House. Cole said that this would be Dream’s last title shot, which Regal agreed to. However, the match will not be taking place in a regular arena, and now we know where it will be going down.
According to Fightful Select by way of Wrestlingnews.co, Velveteen Dream vs. Cole will take place outside of Full Sail University inside a ring surrounded by NXT wrestlers’ cars. The match is being taped on Thursday night, ten days in advance of the match airing. There is no word on if the match will be traditionally filmed or if it will be another cinematic match ala the Boneyard match from WrestleMania 36.
This is a long time coming. Check out how we got here:
Opinion: I’m not sure exactly how the cards around the ring tie into the feud but it’s at least something different. We already saw this match once earlier this month and it was only so good, so maybe the different atmosphere could help. Cole will have held the title for over a year by the time we get to the match so maybe it is time for a title change. That being said, how many times has that been said since Cole won the title?
