Aleister Black vs. Hideo Itami added to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn card


Another match is official for NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn.

It was announced today that Aleister Black would be facing Hideo Itami at the special. The match was set up on last night's episode of NXT TV after Itami demanded respect and tried to take over the ring before Black's match with Kyle O'Reilly, with Black then laying out Itami with Black Mass when he tried to attack him from behind.

WWE then uploaded video of a post-show angle where Black and Itami brawled in the parking lot after Itami tried to ambush him. Itami had been feuding with Kassius Ohno before the program with Black began.

Bobby Roode defending his NXT Championship against Drew McIntyre, Ember Moon challenging Asuka for the NXT Women's Championship, and The Authors of Pain putting their tag titles on the line against SAnitY (Killian Dain & Alexander Wolfe) are also official for TakeOver: Brooklyn at the Barclays Center on August 19th.

Though it hasn't been revealed on TV yet, Johnny Gargano vs. Andrade "Cien" Almas is set for TakeOver as well.
