One of the next big shows coming from WWE will take place on February 16, 2020, with NXT TakeOver: Portland. There are two weeks until that show takes place, and a great card had already been built, and some big matches have been added to it this past week. On top of another title match being added, there will now be a major “Street Fight” which could end up stealing the show.
The yellow brand has really made an even bigger name for themselves since moving up to be a part of the main roster back in September.
One of the key matches on the card will have The BroserWeights taking on The Undisputed Era for the NXT Tag Team Championship. The team of Pete Dunne and Matt Riddle won the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, and they earned the title shot at TakeOver: Portland.
That match is just one of five big matches scheduled for the event. A huge women’s “Street Fight” was announced this week via the official website of WWE. The regular rules of the ring were not enough for Tegan Nox and Dakota Kai, so they will be able to use anything available to them to try and earn a victory.
The two NXT superstars used to be great friends, but things turned ugly when Kai attacked Nox at WarGames. Things continued in the Battle Royal earlier in January, and at TakeOver: Portland, it will be time to settle things once and for all with everything being legal.
Speaking of that battle royal, the winner of that match became the number one contender for the NXT Championship held by Rhea Ripley. The winner of the battle royal ended up Bianca Belair, who will go on to face Ripley in Portland with the hopes of walking out as champion.
The tag team of Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano, aka DIY, are doing pretty well on their own. Both men are involved in huge matches at NXT TakeOver: Portland with one having the chance to walk out as the NXT Champion.
Tommaso Ciampa has been doing well in the last few months, but he has felt rather lost without his “Goldie.” He will challenge Adam Cole for the NXT Championship later this month.
As for Johnny Gargano, he has no small task ahead of him at TakeOver: Portland as he will step in the ring with Finn Balor, and while there is no title on the line — as of right now — there is plenty of bad blood between the two men.
NXT TakeOver: Portland will happen on February 16, from Portland, Oregon, exclusively on the WWE Network.
