Night One of WWE NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver was absolutely incredible, just two hours of straight up professional wrestling. We saw two new champions crowned, the biggest NXT crowd since the pandemic, and WALTER literally broke an announce table with a chop. Seriously, it was fantastic. But that’s not all! This time around, Takeover was too big for one night, and we still have matches like Finn Balor vs. Karrion Kross and Adam Cole to look forward to tonight! Let’s break down the five announced matches for Night Two!
The Way Look To Claim The NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships
Despite only existing for about a month and already being on their second set of champions, the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships still remain promising. Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon are the current champions, and are really starting to gel as a unit.
Tonight, they face familiar foes in Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell of The Way, in this belts first Takeover match. It is these matches that will build this belt’s legacy, and these four ladies will be looking to deliver a classic here.
Bronson Reed Fought To Earn This Shot At Johnny Gargano
Speaking of The Way, Johnny Gargano is irate that he only found out who he’s facing tonight when Bronson Reed came away with the big win in the Gauntlet Eliminator match last night. Reed survived from the #3 slot, last defeating Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott to earn this shot.
His wounds will still be fresh, and someone like Gargano has the ability to exploit that greatly. Reed has yet to get his signature match in NXT, but facing Johnny Takeover is a surefire way to get that match.
It’s Time To See Who The TRUE NXT Cruiserweight Champion Is
This match was one that many fans have been waiting months for. We have had two NXT Cruiserweight Champions for a while now, Jordan Devlin holding the original belt, while Santos Escobar has the interim championship.Both have notched a good amount of defenses while we waited, but the waiting ends tonight.
Tonight, they finally meet one on one to see who is truly the champion the Cruiserweight division deserves. To make things even better, both belts will be hanging above the ring to be retrieved in a ladder match. That idea came from Shawn Michaels, and fans couldn’t agree more on this one.
Finn Balor Has Been Waiting For Karrion Kross
Ever since Finn Balor won the vacant NXT Championship by defeating Adam Cole, he was waiting patiently for a certain man to take his shot. This was Karrion Kross, the man who had to let the belt go due to injury. Balor knows this struggle, having had the same thing happen to him with the WWE Universal Championship.
However, Kross isn’t going to be handed this title. Instead, he needs to do what few have been able to do since Balor returned to NXT. He needs to stop a man at the absolute top of his game, who no longer fights on emotion. This will be the hardest challenge Kross ever faces, and he’d better be ready.
Kyle O’Reilly & Adam Cole Will Tear Each Other Apart
Finally, we have a match that NXT won’t officially sanction, but will let happen anyways. Adam Cole put the nail in the coffin of the Undisputed Era a while back when he attacked Kyle O’Reilly, reigniting a dormant blood feud. They picked up right where they left off in Ring Of Honor, when O’Reilly tapped Cole out in a pile of thumbtacks. Tonight, anything goes, and with these two, we truly don’t know what to expect. It’s a hard match to preview, but just know this: it will be violent.
