With the latest installment of NXT now officially a thing of the past, the WWE Universe can begin looking ahead toward NXT TakeOver: WarGames in Houston, Texas. As the Saturday evening pay-per-view event looms, November 15’s episode of NXT taught fans three important things that should all prove significant in Houston.
The NXT Tag-Team Division Continues To Roll On
At NXT TakeOver: WarGames, the program’s tag-team division will surely be putting on quite the show as SAnitY, The Authors of Pain and The Undisputed Era will be spanning across not one, but two rings while also trapped inside one massive steel cage. While the NXT tag-team division continues to thrive with those three teams well above the rest at the moment, it appears as though the WWE brass is also preparing for life after the upcoming pay-per-view.
On Wednesday evening in Orlando, some highly entertaining tag-team action kicked off the show with The Street Profits ultimately coming out on top. While now capturing a win over Riddick Moss and Tino Sabbatelli, could the Street Profits be in line to receive the next push in the NXT tag-team division?
Ember Moon Receives Final Push Heading Into Fatal Four-Way
After Kairi Sane picked up a little momentum on last week’s episode of NXT, it was finally Ember Moon‘s turn this time around. With a fatal four-way match for the vacant NXT Women’s Championship slated to feature both Sane and Moon in addition to Peyton Royce and Nikki Cross, one can now expect Moon to enter the bout as the favorite.
Not only did she capture a massive win over the upstart Mercedes Martinez on Wednesday evening, but Moon was previously on the cusp of stardom while coming up short at the hands of Asuka. However, with the undefeated Asuka now on the Monday Night Raw roster, could this finally be Moon’s time to shine on the big stage?
Andrade “Cien” Almas, Drew McIntyre Finally Face Off Inside The Ring
After the tandem of competitors originally met “face-to-face” for the first time last week, the occurrence ultimately turned into more of an ambush from Andrade “Cien” Almas. However, with NXT TakeOver: WarGames now less than one week away, Almas and the current NXT Champion Drew McIntyre finally met inside of the squared circle ahead of the pay-per-view event.
With McIntyre initially cutting one final promo before the looming championship match, Almas promptly made his way out from the locker room area en route to actually meeting his opponent face-to-face. Instead of a meeting, though, the duo immediately clashed in what would become an all out brawl. With Almas seemingly capturing at least a little momentum ahead of Saturday evening, will the coveted belt actually be changing hands in Houston?
