NXT Takeover: New Orleans card (SPOILERS)

After last night’s NXT taping, We have an idea of most of the matches heading into the card. This is a damn good NXT Take over card too. I’ve seen every single Takeover and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bad one.

(SPOILERS AHEAD!! Stop reading now if you wanna be surprised, You’ve been warned…… Everything is still subject to change but from the tapings & what I know of the brand this looks to be the card)

Some of these matches have been confirmed during the tapings. While I am speculating on one of the matches)

  • NXT Women’s Championship: Ember Moon (c) vs. Shayna Baszler
  • Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa
  • NXT Championship: Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas (c) vs. Aleister Black
  • NXT Tag Team Championship: The Undisputed Era (c) vs. Roderick Strong & Pete Dunne vs. Authors of Pain
  • NXT North American Championship 6-Man Ladder Match: EC3 vs. Ricochet vs. Lars Sullivan vs. Velveteen Dream vs. Killian Dain vs. Adam Cole

The match I am speculating on is Gargano Vs Ciampa (If that match Don’t happen I’ll be a monkeys uncle)


Mauro Ranallo back in WWE as the head NXT commentator

Written by RustyRages

The WWE and Mauro Ranallo have come to an agreement for one of the best Play by play men in the sports business to continue with the WWE as the head announcer for NXT. 

This is great news for all WWE fans! We get Ranallo to come back and call matches on NXT TV and Takeover specials which will make that product even better then what it already is. It also keeps Ranallo away from the bully that is John Bradshaw Layfield (JBL). Here is the statement Mauro Ranallo released on his Instagram page

“WWE and I mutually agreed to end my responsibilities on SmackDown having nothing to do with rumors about disputes,” he wrote. “As I remained under contract with WWE, we discussed a variety of options. Despite originally agreeing to part ways, there was always a desire to continue working together. We have come to terms on a new agreement that benefits both WWE and me, and I am thrilled to announce I will now be part of the NXT broadcasting team.”

Ranallo has confirmed he will make his debut for NXT at Friday’s (Tomorrow) tapings. So we should see him calling NXT not next week but the week after.

After all the stuff with JBL (Allegedly) I didn’t see him coming back to the WWE so I’m super happy as a fan to see him back. Welcome back Mauro Ranallo.
