WWE NXT General Manager William Regal announced on Thursday morning that Shinsuke Nakamura would defend his NXT Championship against Samoa Joe in the main event of NXT TakeOver: Toronto. Nakamura won the NXT Championship from Joe in August at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II.
This week’s episode of NXT ended with an awesome brawl between Joe and Nakamura. For weeks Joe has been taking out random wrestlers in an effort to force Regal’s hand. Nakamura took off his neck brace before the brawl on last night’s show so the storyline is that he is 100% and ready to face Joe again.
