PWP Nation’s Zack Heydorn previews NXT Takeover: Brooklyn with five things that must happen at the event on Saturday.
NXT’s version of “WrestleMania” is upon us as TakeOver Brooklyn is only a day away. With last year’s event at the Barclays Center in New York being so successful, the WWE and its NXT Superstars are really going to have to pull out all the stops for year two to outshine the inaugural event from 2015.
Here are 5 things that we must see for that to happen …
5. A tag team classic between The Revival and Gargano/Ciampa
With the loss of American Alpha, Enzo and Cass, and The Vaudevillians, NXT needs the next great babyface tag team to help carry the division. The Revival is incredibly successful, but as heels, they need a top opponent to interact with on a weekly basis. Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa look to be the yin to their yang.
But, we need a classic out of these teams on Saturday to lock that down for certain. Gargano and Ciampa don’t need to win the titles, but they need a match that gets them to the next level. Much like American Alpha did during the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Gargano and Ciampa’s gimmick is that they are great wrestlers.
A classic in Brooklyn will solidify them as top players and set up a nice chase for the belts throughout this fall.
