Last week on NXT, General Manager William Regal confirmed the ‘Last Chance’ NXT Title match between champion Adam Cole and challenger, Velveteen Dream with a pair of stipulations. The first is that if Dream loses, he will never again be able to challenge for the belt while Cole is champion.
The second stipulation relates to the location of the match with Regal promising the two that he would find a suitable arena for their match at NXT Takeover: In Your House on Sunday June 7th.
The match was taped yesterday in an outdoor area behind the WWE Performance Center in Orlando. By all accounts, the NXT wrestlers were asked to bring their cars to the taping and they were placed in a circle to form a makeshift ring for the two rivals to square off.
Regal promised that the two would be in the ‘spotlight’ for the match and it seems that promise will be fulfilled by means of the car headlights piercing through the dark and illuminating the match.
We are suckers for a good parking lot brawl so this one adds ever more excitement to what looks like another superb Takeover.
