    Was it ever? Grimes vs Myles - or Lee vs ACH if you prefer - isn't listed on the current Takeover card according to WWE.com, and with a usual hard rule of five matches per Takeover, it's more likely that it'll take place on a normal NXT episode or the Takeover pre-show (which is still treated as a normal NXT episode so whatev).

    Maybe the end of something great.
    Maybe the start of something new.
    Stay tuned.

    I swear on the episode of NXT they said the Breakout Finals would be at TakeOver. I read on reddit though that they scrapped that and replaced it with Io vs LeRae instead. Bummer, was looking forward to Grimes/Myles a lot more. I kind of hate the 5 match formula sometimes for TakeOvers. I feel like if the card is weak, they should squeeze in another match. Gargano/Cole is a rematch for the 3rd time (and although 3rd doesn't sound bad, the time between TakeOvers makes it bad), Street Profits have been jacking off on Raw, and Shayna/Mia although it'll probably be decent, has almost no heat to it. I know Gargano/Cole will be good, and Dunne/Strong/Dream with undoubtedly be really good as well, but damn, the TakeOver formula is a bummer sometimes, especially for fans that go to the shows I would imagine.

    I'll be real with you, I havn't paid enough attention to NXT recently to know whether or not they've said that the finals will take place on Takeover. I assumed they would've, but I can't say for a fact until there's a preview up on WWE.com.

    The live audience probably doesn't mind. They get the Takeover and the Takeover pre-show, which is taped for next week, so that's at least three solid hours of good content.

    I wouldn't rule out Grimes/Lee vs Myles/ACH taking place on Takeover - it would undoubtedly be a welcome addition and a last minute 'this match is taking place RIGHT NOW' announcement would be bonkers - but with how many other matches are on the card, it'd likely be fairly shortened in length and time. At least with it being on a separate NXT episode it can be given as much time as it needs to shine.

    No Riddle vs Dain after all? Normally I'd be fine with them having a shorter card, but with the main you know will be going 30+ minutes I feel a bit robbed they can't fit all the worthy matches on the show.

    If they don’t add Riddle/Dain after apparently scrapping the finals then I’m going to seriously consider selling my ticket. Those were two matches i actually gave a shit about.

    From entrances to the show closing I actually think Cole vs Gargano is going to be the complete final hour of the show and that’s why matches are being left off.

    That's unfortunate.

    There is always a chance that they will increase the time of the show to fit the Finals of the BreakOut tournament, no better time to do it since it's where most eyes will be

    My buddy and I are tentatively going to The Summit on Saturday morning and potentially wXw Ambition 11 the 8th, though that’s contingent on me being able to skip out of work for the 4PM start time.

    Re: NXT TakeOver: Toronto - Card & Discussion

    Mauro said on commentary this week that the final for the break out star tournament will take place in Toronto, so I’m guessing it’ll be taped before Takeover for episode of nXt TV post Takeover.

    I’ve been to a Takeover before and can confirm that they tape matches for the next week of nXt TV before the main card takes place.

    Baszler vs Yim should be good, I really enjoyed the little match they had a few months ago on NXT TV. Candice hasn't really showed anything in the year she has been in NXT but now is the time. Wonder how different Io will wrestle now she is a heel. That should be fun too.

    Redragon returns! Street Profits aren't my favourite team but I can see them gelling with O'Reilly and Fish.

    Damn Street Profits vs Undisputed Era right off the Bat! I thought for sure they would save that for later.

    Well that was something. And by something, I mean incredibly awkward.

    One can say The Street Profits have the bigger pressure on him beating The Undisputed Era. They can't say they are the best till they get that win over them let's see if it happens in a great Match right now.

    I would say so. They turned up their Games I feel just before winning the NXT Tag Titles and have been doing very well since.

    Late to the party for this one. Hoped I hadn't missed too much but logged in in the middle of a "This is Awesome" chant to one of the matches I really wanted to see.
