The NXT Takeover: Toronto card is starting to take shape with two title mathes announced last night during the NXT television tapings.
Shayna Baszler will be defending her NXT Women’s title against Mia Yim while The Street Profits will go against The Undisputed Era with the Tag Team titles on the line.
Baszler, who had been in a program with Io Shirai, seems to have moved on from the Japanese Superstar after Shirai turned heel and attacked Candice LaRae during the previous tapings. Yim had some momentum built after she beat former number one contender Bianca Belair on TV and the Mae Young Classic tournament participant will finally get her shot at Takeover.
Meanwhile, the new Tag Team champions will be meeting one team from the excellent fatal four-way ladder match from Takeover: XXV. Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly will get another shot at the gold with The Street Profits ready to show that their win at Takeover: XXV was not a fluke.
NXT Takeover: Toronto takes place on the eve of SummerSlam on August 10.
