NXT rolls back into their home base at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida, for their next pay per view. On Wednesday night, October 7th, NXT will bring us Takeover: Respect, live on WWE Network. The main event of the show will be a first in wrestling history. NXT Women's Champion Bayley will defend her championship against "The Boss" Sasha Banks. Now what makes this a first is it won't be any normal match, in this match the NXT Women's Championship will be defended in a 30 minute Ironwoman Match! That's right an Ironwoman Match. The only way to win is to have more pinfalls, submissions, countouts or DQ victories than your opponent when the 30 minutes expire.
Doing my research on this monumental match, some are psyched for this match and surprisingly a lot think that this match will stink up Full Sail.
It's All About The Main Event: Many are excited and some were in disbelief to see that the ladies would be main eventing in such a high profile match. This is NXT's chance to let the ladies have an amazing match, give other ladies in NXT a shot at main eventing one day, open up bigger storylines for the ladies and prove that a ladies match of this caliber can conquer and profit. Some fans feel that the ladies should main event more and that this is something that is long overdue in the wrestling business.
All Bark, No Bite: Many fans feel that with this match taking place at Full Sail University, it's not going to have the same loud atmosphere that we seen at the Barclays Center for Takeover: Brooklyn. Some fans feel that all matches are worse in the second go round. Which can be easily argued, considering there have been matches in the past that have been just as good if not better than the first match. Some fans feel that this match will be a let down. All this hype and it falls flat. Fans are happy to see Bayley and Sasha working together, but some feel we're getting too excited about a match like this.
In all honesty, we need to sit back, relax and enjoy what NXT gives us on October 7th. Triple H has had a perfect track record while running NXT and I feel he'll not disappoint us at all. People need to not expect a match that will stand out and be completely different than the Takeover: Brooklyn match. People need to just embrace this special event and be thankful that we have something that will take our minds off of the WWE rollercoaster for a couple hours.
