What was 'Match of the Night' at TakeOver: Toronto?

NXT TakeOver is in the books tonight from Air Canada Centre and now it's time for you to decide what match on the card was the best of the night.

The King has been dethroned

I think the lesson here is don’t mess with Samoa Joe.

Mickie’s still got it, but not enough to beat Asuka

The returning legend looked really good, but in the end, she fell to the Empress of Tomorrow like everyone else.

New top guys!

DIY and the Revival have another thriller which see Gargano and Ciampa win their first titles in WWE.

These videos will get you caught/fired up for TakeOver

NXT may have lost some of the 'buzz' it had a year or even six months ago, but they haven't stopped telling good stories. WWE's alway top-notch production backed that up with these great previews for each of the matches on tonight's card.

A clash of kings

The odds of Samoa Joe reclaiming the NXT title from Shinsuke Nakamura are long, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be a heck of a fight.

Is Mickie ready for Asuka?

The current champ cleared out the division, so William Regal went and brought in a major player from the past. It may not solve the long-term booking dilemma, but we’re ready to watch it!
