NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable Review

Last year, NXT Arrival would become the first live event to take place on the WWE Network. Since then, the TakeOver series has proven to be a successful addition to the network as it provides the superstars of NXT with their own Pay-Per-View series of sorts. While this is clearly not WrestleMania; there remains a nice feel to these NXT specials – some times coming off as better than a main roster Pay-Per-View.

The latest edition of NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable has shaped up nicely with the focal point of this event being lost friendship. With the NXT Championship on the line; two old friends – once closer than brothers – will settle their score in the middle of the squared-circle. While the rest of the card is solid; the build up for this championship encounter has been intense and personal.

The eyes of the NXT Universe will be locked upon the two boys from Quebec as they do battle over the NXT Championship.

Now then, let's take a look the card for NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable.

NXT Championship Match

-Kevin Owens (c) vs. Sami Zayn

NXT Women's Championship Match

-Sasha Banks (c) vs. Becky Lynch

NXT Tag Team Championship Match

NXT Championship No. 1 Contender's Triple Threat Match

-Bayley and Charlotte vs. Emma and Dana Brooke

Bayley & Charlotte vs. Emma & Dana Brooke

Charlotte's version of the Figure Four Leg Lock – known as the Figure Eight – is a masterful maneuver. That being said: this match was nothing out of the ordinary. Some nice teamwork from Charlotte and Bayley at one point but nothing overtly spectacular.

The eventual finish came when Charlotte hit the Natural Selection for the pinfall – another nice move from the daughter of The Natch. It's good to see a new side of Emma as that weird dancing hands thing had certainly run its course. Perhaps she will find a spot back on the main roster soon enough.

On a side note: too much talk about headbands throughout this match.

Winners: Bayley and Charlotte

Match Rating: 3/10
