Before the Royal Rumble officially kicks off the road to WrestleMania, we have another stacked NXT Takeover with our NXT Takeover Phoenix Preview.
Whenever NXT puts on a show before one of WWE’s big 4 PPVs it tends outshine the main roster in terms of overall quality and Takeover Phoenix looks to be on track to continue that trend.
The first Takeover of 2019 will sees all the championships in NXT being on the line including Tomasso Ciampa defending the NXT championship against Aleister Black and Ricochet defending the North American championship against Johnny Gargano.
The show also sees the culmination of a hard-hitting personal feud between Kassius Ohno & Matt Riddle following the shocking quick knockout at Takeover War Games 2 a few months ago.
There’s been a shakeup in the usual NXT dream team line up, but host Sarah Grieve still has great panel to discuss this show.
They break down the card and the stories that have led into the show before giving their predictions. They also take some time to discuss the first ever Worlds Collide tournament between NXT, NXT UK & 205 Live taking place over Rumble Axxess.
