WWE 2K16 Universe - EPISODE 28 - WEEK 7 NXT TakeOver Brooklyn-0

TakeOver: Brooklyn was a special event that took place within the WTX Universe, taking place from Brooklyn, NY on December 23rd 2015, hosted exclusively by NXT.

Background

This was the first TakeOver: Brooklyn event to take place within the WTX Universe, following Vengeance, which was hosted by RAW just three days prior. It was the final event of 2015 and was followed by the first event of 2016, Royal Rumble, in late January.

The show featured seven matches, four of which were for championships, whilst the other three were to determine who would first qualify from NXT for the upcoming Royal Rumble match. In the first match, the NXT General Manager William Regal pit himself in a qualifier against Fandango, the second match then saw the NXT Tag Team Championship at stake as Vicious & Delicious defended against former ally Justin Gabriel, who had reunited with Heath Slater to challenge for the championship. In the third match, the Intercontinental Championship was at stake as Kevin Owens defended against both Solomon Crowe and Seth Rollins in a Triple Threat. The fourth match was then another Royal Rumble qualifier, pitting R-Truth against Brian Pillman.

In the fifth match, the NXT Women's Championship was to be defended as champion Alice Lovecraft faced Eve, who had been attacking Lovecraft repeatedly heading into the event. In the semi-main event, Dean Frost issued the first "Frosty Challenge", which was also a Royal Rumble qualifier, in which whoever won would be added to the Royal Rumble match. In the main event, Stardust defended his NXT Championship inside the Elimination Chamber against Leo Kruger, Ricky Steamboat, Alberto Del Rio, upcomer Pentagon Jr. and former champion The Great Destroyer.
