NXT TakeOver In Your House: 10 Things That Must Happen

Will Velveteen Dream bring it home?

Drake Maverick El Hijo del Fantasma Triple H

Big things dropping, little things stopping.

That could've been the tagline for this past Wednesday's episode of NXT. El Hijo del Fantasma won the Cruiserweight Title, Breezango returned to WWE screens and Johnny Gargano proudly waved Keith Lee's North American Title around (big things), whereas Drake Maverick stopped his exit from the company by inking a new contract (little things - literally when it comes to pint-sized Drake).

Only one of those moments will matter at TakeOver: In Your House this weekend though. Gargano has a titanic tussle waiting for him with Lee over the same belt he stole midweek, but that's not the only marquee bout on offer as WWE dust off a mid-90s pay-per-view tradition and bring In Your House bang up to date.

Some cinematic flavour awaits between Adam Cole and Velveteen Dream, and Charlotte Flair stars in a tasty Triple Threat against Rhea Ripley and Io Shirai for her NXT Women's prize. Then, Tommaso Ciampa faces Karrion Kross, Finn Bálor jousts with Damian Priest and there's a six-woman tag on the card too.
