WWE held the latest set of NXT Tapings yesterday and the company revealed a couple of top matches for the upcoming NXT Takeover: Chicago II over the course of the recording.
First Lars Sullivan announced that he will be facing the current NXT Champion Aleister Black for his title at the upcoming show during a segment.
It started when Black came out and started talking about winning the title in New Orleans. He was interrupted by Lars who announced the bout. The challenger then went on to attack the champion.
Black tried to deliver a Black Mass but Sullivan grabbed his leg and hit Freak Accident on Aleister. He then stood tall with the NXT Title belt over the Fallen Champion to close the segment.
Also after being involved in multiple fights over the course of the tapings, it was clear that the battle between Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa is far from over and it looked imminent that they will meet again at the next Takeover.
This bout was made official when Gargano came out during a match between EC3 and Fabian Aichner and announced that he has signed a contract for a street fight with The Psycho Killer at the upcoming show.
Apart from this they also hinted towards a match between the NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler and Nikki Cross but it’s yet to be made official.
NXT Takeover: Chicago II will take place on Saturday, 16th June from Allstate Arena.
