NXT Takeover: Phoenix lineup: Five matches set for Saturday’s event, two matches to be taped for NXT TV

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

The following matches are advertised for the NXT Takeover: Phoenix event that will be held on Saturday in Phoenix, Arizona at Talking Stick Resort Arena.

-Tommaso Ciampa vs. Aleister Black for the NXT Championship.

-Shayna Baszler vs. Bianca Belair for the NXT Women’s Championship.

-Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong vs. War Raiders for the NXT Tag Titles.

-Ricochet vs. Johnny Gargano for the NXT North American Championship.

-Matt Riddle vs. Kassius Ohno.

Powell’s POV: NXT is advertising The Forgotten Sons vs. Street Profits and Io Shirai and Kairi Sane vs. Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir for next week’s television show, meaning those matches will likely be taped on Saturday before the Takeover show. Dot Net staffer Will Pruett will be in the building for the show so we will pass along the spoilers.

Join John Moore for live coverage of NXT Takeover: Phoenix on Saturday beginning with the pre-show at 5CT/6ET and the main show at 6CT/7ET.
