NXT TakeOver: Rival, Unstoppable and Brooklyn are now in the books, but NXT fans are in for a massive treat.

NXT TakeOver: Respect will take place on October 7 at the usual location of Full Sail University.
NXT is also coming to the UK for a tour, and TakeOver: London takes place on December 16 at the SSE Arena.
A couple of matches have already been announced for the event, here are the matches you should expect to see taking place at both TakeOver: Respect and London.
NXT TAKEOVER: RESPECT
We already know the huge main event taking place at this event. Bayley will defend her NXT Women’s Championship against Sasha Banks in a 30-minute Ironwoman match.
This is a huge occasion for them both, as well as the division as a whole. They’ve got the main event slot at a TakeOver special, they should go on to steal the show for 30 solid minutes.
We also will see the finals for the Dusty Rhodes tag team classic, with two teams battling it out for a shot at the NXT Tag Team Championships.
I believe the two teams we will see in the final will be Chad Gable & Jason Jordan, and they will take on the team of Samoa Joe and Finn Balor.
It is strange to see the NXT Champion play an important role in the tag team division. However, I believe they will reach the final and fail. With one of two men turning heel and setting up an NXT Championship match down the line.
Tyler Breeze will definitely compete on the show, even though he isn’t in a solid feud right now.
Breeze could take on Bull Dempsey who is building some momentum as a face, along with his change of character.
Other big names should also be in action. These include the likes of Baron Corbin, as well as Blake & Murphy.
We should expect to see Solomon Crowe in action, along with the likes of Apollo Crews in what could be a fantastic match.
NXT TAKEOVER: LONDON
This is where it gets more interesting. The first ever TakeOver taking place in another country, and the UK fans should be treated to a great night.
I believe the NXT Championship match will be between Finn Balor and Samoa Joe.
That seems to be the natural fit right now, they’re teaming up and a heel turn is definitely looming for one of them.
The Vaudevillians will defend their NXT Tag Team Championships, and it should be against the winners of the Dusty Rhodes tag team classic.
In this case I believe it will be Jason Jordan and Chad Gable, they look like a solid tag team that could definitely succeed.
Bayley should still be the NXT Women’s Champion come December. With a number of contenders emerging, her opponent could be one of three women.
Eva Marie is being touted as the next NXT Women’s Champion, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see her in that spot.
Dana Brooke is also somebody who is expected to play a big role in the title picture, and the division as a whole.
Asuka could also be thrown into the deep end right away. She’s set to make her debut in the coming weeks, so by December she could be a solid contender.
By December, I would like to see some bigger feuds than we currently have, perhaps even NXT Championship contender matches.
We need to see some high standard matches in London, I believe a Tyler Breeze and Apollo Crews match could offer that.
With the event being in the UK, NXT will definitely look to have Enzo Amore and Big Cass play a role on the night, they’re too over to simply sit out.
