    It’s the go home show for When Worlds Collide but it’s also time to start building things up for Takeover: Portland. I’m not sure where everything is going for that show, but tonight we have more from the Dusty Classic and the North American Title on the line with Roderick Strong defending against the banged up Keith Lee. Let’s get to it.

    Itís a big night around here as Worlds Collide is behind us. That means it is time to move forward towards Takeover: Portland and that means we need to finalize the card for the big show. We do a lot of that this week with the Dusty Classic wrapping up to set up the Tag Team Title match, plus finding out who will challenge Adam Cole for the NXT Title. Letís get to it.

    The Dusty Finish

    As of yesterday, it looks like the final card for TakeOver: Portland has been set:

    NXT Championship: Adam Cole vs. Tommaso Ciampa
    NXT Women's Championship: Rhea Ripley vs. Bianca Belair
    NXT Tag Team Championship: The Undisputed Era vs. The Broserweights
    Grudge Match: Finn Balor vs. Johnny Gargano
    Street Fight: Tegan Nox vs. Dakota Kai


    Looks like it should be another good lively show. On the surface, Nox vs. Kai looks to be the weakest but that doesn't mean it will be as they may wind up tearing the house down. In most cases, even "weak" TakeOver matches are still better than most of the stuff you'll see most other places.

    I could see Cole dropping the title back to Ciampa. By next Sunday, he'll have been champ for 260 days though it also wouldn't bother me to see Cole hold it a bit longer. At any rate, probably sometime this year, Cole will be headed to either Raw or SmackDown where the quality of how he'll be used will be a roll of the dice.

    Ripley will retain, though it should be a good match. If rumors are true about her facing Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania, then they're gonna be keeping her looking as strong as they can.

    I see the UE dropping the titles to Riddle and Dunne. Sure, Riddle and Dunne are one of those "thrown together" teams that we see sometimes but they've been working out pretty damn well. As with Cole, Fish, O'Reilly and Strong will probably be headed to Raw or SmackDown before too long.

    Finn Balor vs. Johnny Gargano, I'm not sure on this one as I could see it going either way. I'm leaning more towards Balor winning here and eventually challenging Ciampa for the NXT Championship a bit later on.

    As for Tegan Nox vs. Dakota Kai, I see Nox getting the win here seeing as how she lost to Dakota on this past Wednesday's episode of NXT. They may have only fought for about 3.5 minutes but they definitely packed a ton of stuff into the time so I'm expecting more of that for this bout. They may end the feud here with both of them having a win over the other or they may wind up setting up a rubber match for the next TakeOver or sometime over TV in the nest month or so.

    With less than two weeks to go before Takeover, the entire card seems to be set. However, there are some things beyond Takeover which also need to be taken care of and that includes Wrestlemania. Therefore, we have a guest star this week as Charlotte is here to answer Rhea Ripley’s Wrestlemania challenge. Let’s get to it.

    In case no one has seen it yet my post will be in spoilers.


    Click for Spoiler:
    Velveteen Dream is a face. The whole putting Roderick Strongs wife and kids face on his tights feels like a massive heel move. The wife thing, while heelish, you can get away with. But having Strongs kid on his tights is just too far for a babyface. in my opinion.


    Still overall a great show, and I'm really looking forward to Portland.

    It’s the go home show for Takeover: Portland and the card is bigger than usual. This time around there are six matches, but if NXT knows how to do one thing really well, it’s put on a solid go home show. Everything is going to get some attention tonight and that should make for a solid evening. Let’s get to it.

    We’re done with Takeover: Portland and that means it’s time to get ready for Takeover: Tampa, which is coming up in a hurry. The big story is Johnny Gargano costing Tommaso Ciampa the NXT Title against Adam Cole, likely setting up the final showdown in Tampa. Other than that, we probably need to get some stuff set up for the big show. Let’s get to it.
