7 Matches That Must Happen At NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia

6. Kairi Sane Vs. Nikki Cross

Kairi Sane

Kairi Sane vs Ember Moon must be the NXT Women’s Championship match over WrestleMania weekend. It is the standout singles match in the division right now, and it deserves the biggest stage possible. There is a chance that the match will happen in Philadelphia, but it might be for the best to hold off on it for now.

How to keep the Mae Young Classic winner occupied until WrestleMania weekend? There are plenty of options. Ruby Riot have received a little bit of focus recently, and a showcase battle would be a big deal for her. The NXT women’s division is stacked right now, but a lot of the talent is waiting to break out as opposed to being credible already.

Which is why Kairi Sane vs. Nikki Cross might be the best bet for NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia. Cross is arguably the most rounded performer in the NXT women’s division right now. The Scot is capable of putting on great matches and carries an aura of unpredictability that could make for a compelling obstacle for Kairi Sane.
