Based off of the success of the first NXT special event 'ArRival' back in March, WWE will air another entitled 'Takeover' on Thursday night on the WWE Network. This special looks like it's being set up to have the real life married couple of Tyson Kidd and Natayla "takeover" by winning the championships of NXT.

NXT Championship

Adrian Neville (C) vs Tyson Kidd

This contest also sets up for a change in championship gold from Neville to Kidd since Kidd has worked very hard a coming back off of injury. The night will end with TJ and Nattie celebrating together, as champions, in the ring.

NXT Tag-Team Championship

Viktor and Konnor (The Ascension) (C) vs Kalisto and El Local

Dominance has been the trademark of The Ascension since winning the NXT Tag-Team titles, and don't expect that to change here. Kalisto and El Local will give them a solid match but not win the titles here.

NXT Women's Championship (Tournament Finals)

Charlotte w/ Ric Flair (her father) vs Natalya w/ Bret Hart (her uncle)

This match should really go to Charlotte as she has pretty much dominated the NXT Women's division since Paige became Divas Champion, but we predict Natalya will take it tonight and become only the second NXT Women's Champion.

Number One Contender's Match

Sami Zayn versus Tyler Breeze

This match should be a natural set up for Zayn to become the number one contender to whomever wins between Neville and Kidd later on in the evening. Expect these two will have a great high flying match that showcases there skills and enthrall the crowd.

Adam Rose versus Camacho

A late addition to the card, we wonder if it will even happen considering how Rose and the Exotic Express "take over" the stage and ring each time they enter an arena. Camacho has been heating up of late though so we would expect him to be the winner.

So there you go we preview the NXT special 'Takeover' for Thursday night at 8 pm on the WWE Network. The two hour event will air live and showcase the best of the "next generation" of talent in the WWE pipeline for now and the future.
