    I'm fairly over Sane vs Baszler at this point. Gone back to that well too many times now.

    The other 3 matches are, on paper anyway, spectacular.

    My god this card. No way I will be able to watch live, but I will be avoiding this thread like the plague. Might watch this Sunday instead of Survior Series.

    Dream titleshot!!!!

    Every match looks like one party loses and then gets called up to the main shows (Dream, Kairi, Black, Undisputed Era).

    It won't happen with every one, but I'll be sad if none of them do.

    Crowd will lose their minds of Dream wins. Sadly I highly doubt that’s in the cards, but NXT can surprise you.

    really sick card, although im surprised only 4 matches. I feel like they should just put Riddle/Ohno on the card instead of taping it dark

    Exactly. Even when you think you know who’s winning each match, Hunter has a way of shocking us.

    It was going to be on the card, but the War Games match is going to get a ton of time so they can't fit it in. Ideally, I'd just extend the show by however long they need but that might not be an option. Or they just might want to keep the show short.

    NXT really has surprised me multiple times. I think next to no one expected Almas to beat Drew at War Games and it happened. I didn't expect Ciampa to beat Black for the NXT title, but it happened. NXT has caught me off guard often times and it's a good thing. Unpredictability in wrestling is needed (for the most part)

    I'll be in attendance Saturday. Been to a couple of NXT house shows which were fun, but I'm hoping the Takeover crowd makes the event that much better. I took my buddy to NXT when they came to town May 2017 and I think Velveteen was just getting started (he might have still been going by Patrick Clark). Going to Takeover with the same friend (doesn't watch NXT, but follows WWE). Talking with him this week and I said "Remember that Velveteen Dream gimmick that I thought was DOA? Yeah, he ended up being awesome and he'll be in one of the main events on Saturday."

    Who will the obligatory "new person in the crowd" for this Takeover?

    It needs the right kind of unpredictability. If you're watching a tag team split, you don't want to be surprised that they've broken up. You want to be sitting there going "is this going to be the last straw?" every week, until it finally happens. The surprise needs to be the 'when', not the 'if'.

    In general, I think wrestling needs predictability far more than it needs unpredictability. Else you're just watching random things happen, and that's not interesting. I think it's better to say that wrestling needs uncertainty, you should be able to predict the outcome but not be completely sure that it'll happen.

    I don't think there anyone they've signed recently to show off right now, but I could just be forgetting someone.

    I think WWE acknowledged that he signed, but not sure if it counts a spoiler (and I'm not sure how big a pop they'd get):

    They signed Punishment Martinez and Chelsea Green. WWE.com had an article which had them and others (including Riddle) as the latest round of signings.

    So am I just going crazy but didn't the spoilers say the title match was going to be a 3 way with Lars involved.

    Also think they should of done 3 Horsewomen vs Kari/Io/Satomeru instead of the rematch. A little burnt out on Shayna vs Kari all though I think the match will deliver.

    Speculated but was never official. What happened was Lars beat him on a match after interference from Ciampa.

    It was speculated, but they went with Dream vs. Ciampa instead. I feel like Ricochet might losing his NA title to Lars eventually. When that is, I have no clue.

    They could be who they show, but they are clearly below the likes of Riddle or Lee so it wouldn't be great.

    This has to be the last part of Shayna vs Kari. The matches have been good, and I've enjoyed it, but I'd like something new.

    I for one am looking forward to Sane vs Baszler. They've done an excellent job of protecting both women in these championship matches. The only straight up clean win was Kairi in the MYC.

    I look forward to seeing how they end this feud. The easy prediction is Baszler gets the win merely because she still has a good feud with Kai in the wings. But who knows what they do.

    I hope Kari wins back the title.

    Evans/Evil Candace/Belair and Io are all lined up for her as challangers. Shayna IMO doesn't have much left in NXT and not many face challangers. Unless the plan is for Io to win at the next Takeover.

    I could of sworn I read the spoilers that Regal made it a 3 way. Guess I am remembering wrong.

    Lars should go to main roster. Not much left for him in NXT and there is enough talent in NXT that needs a push.
