The following matches are advertised for the NXT Takeover: Portland event that will be held on Sunday, February 16 in Portland, Oregon at Moda Center.
-Adam Cole vs. Tommaso Ciampa for the NXT Championship.
-Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly vs. Matt Riddle and Pete Dunne for the NXT Tag Titles.
-Rhea Ripley vs. Bianca Belair for the NXT Women’s Championship.
-Keith Lee vs. Dominik Dijakovic for the NXT North American Championship.
-Finn Balor vs. Johnny Gargano.
-Tegan Nox vs. Dakota Kai in a street fight.
Powell’s POV: WWE added the NXT North American Championship match since our last update. NXT is straying from its usual five-match approach for the standalone event. Plus, it seems at least possible that they add Velveteen Dream vs. Roderick Strong given last night’s storyline developments. Either way, this looks like a loaded show on paper.
