NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver will be split over two nights,
with night one airing on USA Network and WWE Network while
night two airing exclusively on the WWE Network.
For night one, NXT Women’s champion Io Shirai looks like she
is in trouble as bookmakers have placed her opponent Raquel
Gonzalez as the favorite to walk out of Takeover with the
title. Shirai is 8/5 and the underdog while Gonzalez is
11/25 to win her first singles title in NXT.
A triple threat tag team match will determine new NXT Tag
Team champions. Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament
winners MSK are the clear favorites with their odds of 3/5
while The Grizzled Young Veterans are 13/10 to win and
Legado Del Fantasma with 15/2 odds.
The NXT UK championship will be on the line as Walter
defends against Tommaso Ciampa. The Austrian champ is the
overwhelming favorite with 1/10 odds while the former NXT
champ has 5/1 odds. Considering Walter is defending the
title at NXT UK: Prelude on Thursday, it’s safe to say this
is a no brainer.
Will there be a new NXT champion crowned on night two? Well,
if the odds prove to be correct, yes! Karrion Kross is
currently the favorite to take the title from Finn Balor
with his odds at 1/3 while Balor is 2/1 to retain.
One Cruiserweight champion will emerge victorious on
Thursday as both champions, Jordan Devlin and Santos
Escobar, wrestle in a ladder match to determine who is the
undisputed champ. Escobar is currently the slight favorite
with 3/4 odds while the Irish Devlin is 19/20.
And in what could be the match of the event, Adam Cole and
Kyle O’Reilly go one-on-one in an unsanctioned match.
O’Reilly currently has the edge over the former leader of
The Undisputed Era with 2/5 odds while Cole is 7/4 to win.
