What’s the Worst That Could Happen? NXT Takeover: Unstoppable Edition

Sasha Becky

Sasha Banks (c) vs Becky Lynch – NXT Women’s Championship Match

Best Case Scenario – With major injury issues clouding the top two men’s matches, Lynch and Banks easily steal the show, and top even the universally beloved Natty/Charlotte match from NXT: Takeover Uno.

Worst Case Scenario: Lynch gets knocked out backstage in freak accident at catering and reverts to her debut “Lordess of the Dance” character. She riverdances to the ring with a box of Lucky Charms under one arm and Hornswoggle under the other. She wins the match anyway.


What Will Happen: Nothing short of a fantastic match, but it features the same problems that persist within all levels of women’s wrestling in WWE: the blurred alignment of characters. The lack of a true face in this match hurts emotional engagement, which can take a good match to greatness.
