Published Add your comment

NXT Takeover Brooklyn is just over three days away and already boasted a headline ladder match for the NXT Championship between Kevin Owens and Finn Balor, but now Triple H has added a further six matches to the epic event and even extended the pay-per-view by an extra 30 minutes. 

Takeover will now have 10 matches on the card, one more that this year's WrestleMania and the same amount as SummerSlam, that takes place the following night from the same venue. 

These are the matches that Triple H has added:

Bull Dempsey vs. Elias Samson

The "Get Bull Fit" spokesman will have a chance to put himself in a better position with in NXT after many fans have been wondering what the company are doing with him. A place on a Takeover card is a good inclination that WWE know that he has a bright future. Elias Samson will also want to make a huge statement with a win here. 

Apollo Crews vs. Tye Dillinger

A lot of speculation has surrounded the debut of the superstar formerly known as Uhaa Nation, he has a lot to prove in his first WWE outing and Tye Dillinger will not be an easy person to get past but it is likely that this could just be a squash match to allow Apollo to begin his NXT career in style.

Eva Marie vs. Carmella

Eva Marie makes her NXT Takeover debut in a match against Enzo and Cass's valet Carmella who is certainly not a pushover herself. WWE has high hopes of Eva Marie and obviously the hope is that she gets a decent reaction from the crowd in Brooklyn so they can test the water ahead of her main roster debut. 

Enzo Amore, Big Cass, Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley vs. Jason Jordan, Chad Gable, Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson

Absolutely massive eight-man tag match as Enzo and Cass team up with The Hype Bros to take on Jordan and Gable and Wilder and Dawson. It will be interesting to see who comes out on top in this match and if it will have any immediate effect on the NXT Tag Team Championships that are also on the line as Blake and Murphy defend against The Vaudevillians. 

Charlotte vs. Emma vs. Becky Lynch vs. Dana Brooke

Ahead of their triple threat elimination tag team match on Sunday night at SummerSlam, both Charlotte and Becky from team PCB will be in action in a fatal four way presumably to find the NXT Women's Championship's next contender. It will be interesting to see how the women handle the match since Dana and Emma are friends and as are Charlotte and Becky so this could end up as more of a tag team match. 

Either way, NXT Takeover Brooklyn is now a genuine contender with WWE's flagship SummerSlam show and there is no competition like inside competition. This can only be good for WWE and the competitive wrestlers on both rosters.
