The following matches are advertised for the NXT Takeover event that will be held on Sunday in Orlando, Florida at Full Sail University.
-Finn Balor vs. Kyle O’Reilly for the NXT Championship.
-Io Shirai vs. Candice LeRae for the NXT Women’s Championship.
-Damian Priest vs. Johnny Gargano for the NXT North American Championship.
-Santos Escobar vs. Isaiah “Swerve” Scott for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship.
-Kushida vs. Velveteen Dream.
Powell’s POV: NXT announced the cruiserweight title match today and it looks like a very good match on paper. O’Reilly won the Gauntlet Eliminator to earn the NXT Title match, and LeRae won a women’s battle royal to earn her title shot. Join us for live coverage of NXT Takeover 31 on Sunday beginning with the pre-show. The main show begins at 6CT/7ET and Dot Net Members will hear an exclusive audio review afterward.
