WWE is taping episodes of NXT television at Full Sail down in Winter Park, Florida tonight (get full spoilers here) and that means new matches are being made official for the next Takeover special, which is set for June 8 at the same venue.
First, Asuka will defend her women's championship against Nia Jax. That came to be after William Regal revealed Bayley would not be cleared to compete at the show, so a number one contender triple threat match was made featuring Jax defeating Carmella and Alexa Bliss.
Yes, that means Eva Marie is, in a roundabout way, in the title scene.
Elsewhere, Shinsuke Nakamura and Austin Aries had themselves an argument over who would be the next champion in the men's division and that led to Regal announcing a match between the two. The winner, presumably, will be in line to take on the winner of the Samoa Joe vs. Finn Balor title match that will also take place on the show.
Here's the full updated card:
- Samoa Joe vs. Finn Balor (NXT men's championship)
- Asuka vs. Nia Jax (NXT women's championship)
- American Alpha vs. The Revival (Tag team championship)
- Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Austin Aries
