    NXT Takeover Special NXT Takeover: Portland - Feb. 16th, 2020 - Card & Discussion



    NXT Championship
    Adam Cole vs Tommaso Ciampa




    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com

    The Blackheart was forced to relinquish the title he called “Goldie” in March 2019 when he underwent neck surgery. Ciampa was out of action for nearly seven months, returning that October to confront Cole during NXT’s live two-hour debut on USA Network.

    The road to this championship showdown has not been a direct one. Though Ciampa has said his life without the title has been empty, he has been laser-focused on the man who currently has Goldie in his clutches. The Blackheart has led a team to victory over Cole’s Undisputed ERA in WarGames, landing the final blow in the battle by driving the NXT Champion through two tables with a devastating slam from the top of the cage.

    When Ciampa was revealed as Cole’s challenger for TakeOver, The Blackheart sought to ensure their bout was made official just between the two of them. He did that by taking out the rest of Undisputed ERA and setting up a table in the ring, which he later drove the NXT Champion through when Cole protested the bout.

    Will Tommaso Ciampa reclaim Goldie and get his life back, or will Cole dash The Blackheart’s dreams of a reunion with his precious title? Find out when NXT TakeOver: Portland streams live, Sunday, Feb. 16, at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network!
    NXT Women's Championship
    Rhea Ripley (c) vs Bianca Belair

    The Nightmare was successful in defending her title against Toni Storm at Worlds Collide, setting the stage for this huge showdown. In Belair, Ripley faces a supremely confident Superstar who sees capturing the title as an inevitability. But Ripley has been dominant since ending the 416-day reign of Shayna Baszler. It will be a true test of will when these two Superstars clash.

    Will The EST of NXT add NXT Champion to her résumé, or will Ripley continue to overpower her competition? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Portland, streaming live Sunday, Feb. 16, at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network!
    NXT Tag Team Championships
    The Undisputed Era vs Pete Dunne & Matt Riddle



    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com

    “The BroserWeights” had never teamed prior to the Dusty Classic, but proved to be a dangerous duo throughout the tournament. They bested former NXT UK Tag Team Champions Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster in a thriller to open the tournament, then prevailed over Imperium’s Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner in the semifinals before defeating Grizzled Young Veterans in a wild tournament final.

    But The Undisputed ERA will be a tall task. O’Reilly & Fish have dominated the competition since recapturing the title in August, and are one of the most experienced teams in NXT.

    Can Riddle & Dunne capture NXT’s top tag team prize, or will The Undisputed ERA’s dominance continue? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Portland, streaming live on WWE Network Sunday, Feb. 16, at 7 ET/4 PT!
    Street Fight
    Dakota Kai vs Tegan Nox

    The bad blood between the former best friends can be traced back to NXT TakeOver: WarGames. Kai betrayed her best friend during the first-ever Women’s WarGames Match, brutally attacking Nox, targeting her injured knee and putting her out of action for nearly two months. When Nox returned in January during a Battle Royal to determine the No. 1 Contender to the NXT Women’s Championship, Kai was not far behind, ruthlessly yanking Nox off the top rope and eliminating her from the match. Kai added insult to injury by hurling the brace she tore off Nox’s knee at TakeOver at her former friend.

    The two friends turned bitter rivals finally met in the squared circle on the Jan. 29 edition of NXT. In what turned out to be more of a brawl than a wrestling match, Kai tried to use everything at her disposal to once again maim Nox. However, thanks to a timely distraction from Candice LeRae, Nox was able to give Kai a taste of her own medicine, clobbering Dakota with the knee brace to pick up the victory.

    With the rulebook thrown out the window, to what lengths will these two go to bring their rivalry to an end? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Portland, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network Sunday, Feb. 16, at 7 ET/4 PT!
    Johnny Gargano vs Finn Balor

    The bad blood between the two Superstars has been brewing for months. Bálor showed his true colors on the Oct. 23 edition of NXT on USA, when he brutally attacked Johnny Gargano, capping off his assault by dropping Johnny Wrestling on the steel ramp with a 1916 DDT. Gargano was taken out of Full Sail University in an ambulance and suffered a neck injury as a result of Bálor’s heinous actions, which forced him to miss his first TakeOver since 2016.

    Johnny Wrestling caught Bálor off-guard on the Dec. 18 edition of NXT by making his surprise return during Bálor’s NXT Championship Match with Adam Cole. The distraction cost Bálor the title, and Gargano sent a message to his rival by bashing him with a steel chair, forcing Bálor to retreat.

    On Jan. 8, Gargano made it clear that as long as there was breath in his body, he would do whatever it takes to get his hands on his rival. Bálor responded by telling Gargano he could have his fight at TakeOver: Portland, if he made it that far.

    What will happen when this highly combustible rivalry reaches its boiling point? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Portland, streaming live on WWE Network Sunday, Feb. 16 at 7 ET/4 PT!
    North American Championship
    Keith Lee (c) vs Dominik Dijakovic




    Quote Originally Posted by WWE.com

    The two titans have been on a collision course over the past year in a series of matches that have redefined what big men can do inside the squared circle. But in their series of four matches, each man holds one victory, along with a pair of draws, leaving them and the NXT Universe wondering who is the superior Superstar.

    The two rivals put their differences aside and joined forces to help Tommaso Ciampa in his war against The Undisputed ERA, joining The Blackheart in victory inside WarGames. Lee and Dijakovic soon gained a great deal of respect for each other after that. After Dijakovic’s victory over Killian Dain on the Feb. 5 edition of NXT, he was given the opportunity to challenge Lee. Will that respect go out the window when the NXT North American Title is on the line?

    I could see Balor/Gargano going both ways. They'll both need to leave their bad habits at the door though.

    There's a lot of options for what they could add to this show:

    Kyle and Bobby Vs Broserweights/GYV
    Keith Lee Vs Roddy Strong rematch
    Dakota Kai Vs Tegan Nox
    Jordan Devlin Vs Angel Garza

    Dakota Kai Vs Tegan Nox Street Fight has been added to this card.

    I'm pumped they are adding this match, but feels like an odd setup to the match when we already saw the revenge happen. Tegan, the babyface, uses the brace to win and get her comeuppance on the heel........shouldn't Dakota have won on Wednesday if you're gonna set up a street fight without a promo to explain anything.

    Or at least go to a no contest with Kai attacking her and getting Dq'd. In anycase should be a fun match.

    The entire card looks...interesting. Balor/Gargano will either steal the show or shit the bed, gonna be fun to see how that one turns out. Same goes with Ciampa/Cole, they'll either have a great match or a PWG wankfest filled with NEARFALL...SUPERKICK..DESTORYER....KICKOUT...*insert Mauro screaming at the top of his lung some sort of relevant cultural joke*. Hopefully its the former but i don't have my hopes up.

    Rhea/BelAir should be solid enough, I really really like belair but outside the MYC I don't remember see him look well in a big 1-1 matchup. hopefully that changes here. UE v Broserweights will probably the MOTN by a good distance.
