Co-Main Event For NXT Takeover: Houston Revealed

So far, things have been heating up in NXT; and with the reveal for the co-main event, things are only going to get wilder. At Wednesday’s TV tapings in Winter Park, Florida; WWE announced that the NXT title would be up for grabs.

Champion Drew McIntyre will be defending his title against a very formidable Andrade “Cien” Almas. Their match will be the co-main event for NXT Takeover: Houston; which will take place November 18th, at the Toyota Center.

The event will be shown exclusively on the WWE Network, and as always; new subscribers can get to see not only Takeover, but Survivor Series as well.

Takeover: Houston is set to be a wild card, especially with the reintroduction of an old favorite. It was announced that the WWE would be reviving the old War Games match; and it will feature three teams of three. Sanity will face off against Undisputed Era and The Authors of Pain, who have teamed with Roderick Strong.

The War Games match will be the other main event on the card, which is expected to be as good as always.

Also, the NXT Women’s Title match will be a Fatal 4-Way; as Mae Young Classic winner Kairi Sane goes up against Peyton Royce, Nikki Cross and Ember Moon.

There may also be a match between Velveteen Dream and Aleister Black; if the company chooses to continue the feud to that point.

Keep here for all updates, as we will report them once they have been released.
