The rumoured card for NXT TakeOver in August could make it WWE's best show of 2018

August is not just a big month for WWE’s main roster.

Yes, most of Vince McMahon’s focus will be on building towards SummerSlam - but that’s not the promotion's only PPV next month.

NXT: TakeOver returns to Brooklyn for the fourth time - and will air live one night before “The Biggest Party of the Summer”.

WILL TAKEOVER STEAL THE SHOW?

Unlike the main roster, WWE’s developmental brand usually only holds a PPV every few months - meaning the storylines can be far deeper - and more entertaining.

In June, TakeOver landed the night before Money in the Bank and following that weekend, most WWE fans were left thinking that NXT put on a far better show.

And that could happen again in August - especially after what happened earlier this week.

A NEW NXT CHAMPION

Unlike SmackDown and RAW, NXT does not air live. Instead, a number of episodes are taped in advance on the same night.

In the episode that’s going to air next Wednesday (recorded this week), Aleister Black put his title on the line against Tommaso Ciampa.

Incredibly, The Blackheart picked up a shocking victory, prying the title from his opponent's hands.

It’s an almost unbelievable result, considering how close we are to the next TakeOver show.

But it’s set the PPV card up to be one of the best ever.

NXT TAKEOVER: BROOKLYN IV CARD

Following Ciampa's NXT title win, the main event of TakeOver: Brooklyn IV will be a triple threat involving him, former champion Black and his long-term rival Johnny Gargano. 

Epic. Ciampa and Gargano will go head-to-head once again at the Barclays Center - and could perhaps end their brutal feud for good.

The main event was officially confirmed by William Regal last night and four other massive matches are expected to join it on the card, according to NoDQ.com

THE BEST TAKEOVER YET?

Velveteen Dream, who's been tipped for a call-up to the main roster, will likely face EC3 one-on-one in what could be his last TakeOver match.

The Undisputed Era's Kyle O'Reilly and Roderick Strong are expected to defend their tag team titles against Mustache Mountain.

Meanwhile, their stablemate Adam Cole will put the North American Championship on the line against Ricochet.

To complete the card, Shayna Baszler will defend her NXT Women's Championship against Kairi Sane.  

With all these massive matches on the card, TakeOver: Brooklyn IV could well be NXT's best PPV yet.
