Roderick Strong vs. Eric Young set for NXT TakeOver: Chicago


The final match for TakeOver: Chicago was announced on last night's go-home episode of NXT TV.

Continuing his feud with SAnitY, Roderick Strong will be facing Eric Young at the show. There was an angle shot to set up the match where SAnitY attacked Strong after he lost to Hideo Itami on last week's episode.

Strong vs. Young will be the only non-title match at TakeOver, with the WWE United Kingdom Championship set to be defended in addition to all three NXT titles. The show will take place at the Allstate Arena in Chicago on Saturday. The updated lineup is:

  • NXT Champion Bobby Roode defending against Hideo Itami
  • NXT Women's Champion Asuka defending against Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot in a triple threat match
  • WWE United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate defending against Pete Dunne
  • NXT Tag Team Champions The Authors of Pain defending against DIY in a ladder match
  • Roderick Strong vs. Eric Young
