Episode 193 is all about NXT Takeover: Chicago as Dave leads you into the big event in The Windy City.
We begin with a review of the May 17, 2017 installment of NXT. Drew McIntyre took on Sean Maluta, Lacey Evans battled Sonia Deville, and Kassius Ohno went up against Andrade “Cien” Almas in the Main Event. Plus, we got one more showdown between Bobby Roode and Hideo Itami before their NXT Championship match in Chicago.
We then take a look at the brand, spanking, newest exclusive event on the WWE Network, the United Kingdom Championship Special. This event truly set the stage for the UK Championship match at Takeover: Chicago as Pete Dunne took on Trent Seven to determine the #1 contender for the UK Championship while, on the same event, the UK Champion, Tyler Bate, tussled with Mark Andrews for the UK Championship. How did this all play out and how did it directly impact the UK Championship match at NXT Takeover: Chicago? We let you know on Episode 193.
We close things out with Dave previewing NXT Takeover: Chicago. How did he think things would go down? Did he see new champions being crowned? Could Ruby Riot or Nikki Cross unseat Asuka for the NXT Women’s Championship? Could Hideo Itami take the NXT Championship from Bobby Roode? Could #DIY reclaim the Tag Team Titles from the Authors of Pain? Tune in to Episode 193 to find out.
