NXT TakeOver: Chicago: NXT Championship - Bobby Roode (c) VS Hideo Itami
After winning a #1 contender's match against Roderick Strong on tonight's episode of NXT, Itamo moves onto Chicago to face Bobby Roode for the title. If I'm not mistaken, this is Itami's first shot at the title and considering that he was going to be among the top stars in NXT before injuries derailed his journey, I think there's a chance that he wins but I think there's more of a chance that Roode retains. Since this isn't a TakeOver that's connected to one of the classic Big Four ppvs, I guess that'd make it a "B show", I think it's more likely they'll wait until SummerSlam, at least, before taking the title off Roode. Then Roode could get his rematch for the TakeOver event happening during Survivor Series weekend before popping up as a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble next year.
