New Matches Announced For NXT TakeOver 36

It seems we may now have our full card for NXT TakeOver 36, after the black and gold brand confirmed two more matches on their August 10 episode.

Firstly, there was another encounter between Million Dollar Champion LA Knight and Cameron Grimes, with Ted DiBiase managing to goad Knight in to putting his title on the line at TakeOver.

There is more to this than just the gold up for grabs though, as if Knight retains then DiBiase must become his butler, much like the fate Grimes has suffered in recent months.

Also on the August 10 episode, NXT General Manager William Regal brought Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly face-to-face in the ring to confirm that they will square off in a two-out-of-three falls match at TakeOver.

Each man was allowed to pick a stipulation for one of the falls. Whilst O’Reilly went for a straightforward wrestling match, Cole upped the ante by declaring that the second fall would be a street fight.

William Regal then made the decision on the final fall, which will be fought inside a steel cage.

These two contests complete what looks like a traditional five-match card. Already confirmed for the event is Dakota Kai defending her NXT Women’s Championship against former best friend Dakota Kai, WALTER once again battling Ilja Dragunov for the NXT UK gold, and Samoa Joe competing in his first match for 18 months as he takes on NXT Champion Karrion Kross.
