At the WWE NXT tapings on Thursday night, Triple H announced a battle royal to determine the new #1 contender to Adrian Neville’s NXT title. The battle royal came down to Tyson Kidd, Sami Zayn and Tyler Breeze. They were all eliminated at the same time so Triple H came out and ordered a triple threat match between the three. Tyson Kidd got the win during that match so he’ll face Adrian Neville at the LIVE Takeover special on the WWE Network on May 29th.
Also announced at the tapings, a women’s title tournament will take place where the Divas will face-off against each other over the next four weeks. For week one, Sasha Banks defeated Bayley and Natalya defeated Layla. For week two, Charlotte defeated Emma while Alexa Bliss defeated Alicia Fox. For week three, Charlotte defeated Alexa Bliss and for week four, Natalya defeated Sasha Banks. That sets up Natalya vs. Charlotte for the NXT Women’s title at the Takeover event. As we’ve been reporting, Charlotte is rumored to win the title and that seems very likely now with Natalya on the main roster already.
Tyson Kidd and Natalya in the two “Takeover” main events? Interesting.
So …. here are the matches set for the WWE Takeover special, which will air live on the WWE Network on May 29th. The matches were set during the TV taping:
* NXT Title Match: Adrian Neville vs. Tyson Kidd
* NXT Women’s Title Match: Natalya vs. Charlotte
* #1 Contender’s Match: Sami Zayn vs. Tyler Breeze
