On a weekend when Money in the Bank actually lived up to the hype, it's amazing that lots of WWE fans are still raving about NXT TakeOver.

Saturday night saw the best of WWE's developmental roster steal the show - with all five matches on the card surpassing expectation. 

GARGANO VS CIAMPA

The main event of the show saw Johnny Gargano up against Tommaso Ciampa - in a Chicago Street Fight. 

That match lasted an incredible 35 minutes, as the two men, who had been feuding for a massive 392 days, aimed to put their rivalry to bed. 

It was Ciampa who pinned Gargano to win - and rather than closing the book on this brutal chapter, the result means that the pair could be battling all the way to Brooklyn in August. 

But they weren't the only two performers that managed to blow away the NXT Universe in Chicago.  

A STACKED CARD

The Undisputed Era opened the show by defeating Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch, before Ricochet beat Velveteen Dream in a one v one matchup. 

The NXT Women's titleholder Shayna Baszler defended her belt by besting Nikki Cross - and Aleister Black did the same by defeating Lars Sullivan in his first NXT Championship defense.

All these competitors are showing strong signs that they'll one day be called up to WWE's main roster. And for some, that may actually come sooner than later. 

RUMOURED POST WRESTLEMANIA 34 CALL UP

Back in April, Drew McIntyre, Andrade "Cien" Almas, Sanity and The Authors of Pain were all handed a promotion following WrestleMania 34. 

Interestingly though, according to Dave Meltzer, they should have been joined by another huge name.

He revealed, on Wrestling Observer Radio, per Cageside Seats, that Velveteen Dream was "on the list to be called up after ‘Mania". 

Meltzer then went on to say that he wouldn't be surprised if Dream was moved up to the main roster now. 

And after his performance at TakeOver: Chicago, it's hard to argue that he doesn't deserve a call up.

Interestingly, Dream also lost on Saturday night - and that's usually a pretty strong indication that a superstar could be on their way out - or in this case, up.
