NXT Takeover: London is now considered to have been a rousing success, with most fans stating that the only downfall was Nia Jax vs Bayley.
Whilst the match wasn't unwatchable, it also didn't seem like it was a well-connected bout.
Nia had never been beaten until she stepped into the ring with Bayley and it seems like WWE handing her this first defeat, could strike the end of her dominant run.

IS ASUKA NEXT?
There was a backstage segment as part of the show and, as Nia was about to talk about her upcoming match, Asuka appeared, smiled and then walked away.
There was also a segment following Askua's win over Emma where she appeared backstage as Emma and Dana Brooke were talking about her loss, but it made it seem as though the problem between those three women is far from over.
Asuka has been a rousing success so far in her NXT career and she has already had many stand out matches against Dana and Emma so it would be rather harsh to put her in a feud with Nia if it's only to make Nia look strong again.
WAS NIA PUSHED TOO SOON?
Heading into NXT Takeover, many thought that Nia could actually defeat Bayley for the title and this would then signal that Bayley was about to be called up to the main roster.
The thought was that Nia would not come out of the match looking strong if Bayley won and instead WWE may set up a DQ ending in order for Nia to be given another shot in the near future.
Instead, Nia was not only defeated by Bayley but she was forced to tap out to a guillotine choke hold. How can WWE bring her back from something like that?
Eva Marie was also curiously missing from NXT's latest live event even though she was a part of this storyline from the start.
The feeling is that WWE is trying to put Nia in a position that she isn't ready for. She has only been in NXT for a few months and being handed a title shot so soon, and losing the way she did. won't help her going forward.
If she does open a feud with Asuka now then she needs to be the dominant diva she was before, but this would hurt The Japanese star as well, given how good her feud with Emma and Dana has been.
