It wouldn’t be a wrestling-related story if there wasn’t some juicy news to report that was shrouded in uncertainty. As it often the case in this crazy industry fans know and love (and love to hate), not everything is as it seems and things should often be taken with a grain of salt.
With that in mind, it would appear that the entire card for NXT TakeOver Toronto, set to be held over SummerSlam weekend on Saturday, Aug. 10, has been leaked following the latest NXT taping results.
The card, as rumored, is as follows:
NXT Title Match
Johnny Gargano vs. Adam Cole (c)
NXT Women’s Title Match
Mia Yim vs. Shayna Baszler (c)
Triple Threat for the NXT North American Title
Pete Dunne vs. Roderick Strong vs. The Velveteen Dream (c)
NXT Tag Team Titles Match
The Undisputed Era’s Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish vs. The Street Profits’ Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins (c)
NXT Breakout Tournament Finals
Jordan Myles vs. Cameron Grimes
Io Shirai vs. Candice LeRae
Killian Dain vs. Matt Riddle
Tyler Breeze and Fandango vs. The Forgotten Sons
Stacked NXT Card Set for SummerSlam Weekend
This card could feature a bevy of hard-hitters, such as Gargano vs. Cole III, Mia Yim in her first NXT Women’s Title match, Pete Dunne competing for the NXT North American Championship against Roderick Strong and The Velveteen Dream as well as the reunion of the Fashion Police against The Forgotten Sons, if that match actually takes place.
As mentioned, any sort of news like this should be taken with a grain of salt. Things can change in wrestling, especially with the event nearly two months away at the time of the leak occurring. For now, it’s safe to salivate over the potential of these matches as long as it’s done with cautious optimism.
