Huge NXT Title Match Announced For TakeOver: Phoenix

Aleister Black will finally get his NXT Title rematch at the upcoming TakeOver: Phoenix Event.

WWE announced tonight that Black will face NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa in the main event of NXT TakeOver: Phoenix. Black lost the title to Ciampa on The July 25 episode of NXT TV.

Black reportedly spent some time on the shelf with a groin injury following the title loss. He returned to defeat Johnny Gargano at TakeOver: WarGames II last month and their feud will now come closer to ending with a Steel Cage Match that airs on The December 19th episode.

It will be interesting to see if Black regains the title as he is reportedly being considered for a call-up to the main roster for RAW or SmackDown LIVE.

No other matches have been announced for TakeOver as of this writing. Female Superstars are currently trying to qualify for a Fatal 4 Way #1 Contender's Match that will air on The December 26th episode. The winner of that match will face NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler at TakeOver in Phoenix. Bianca Belair has already qualified.

TakeOver: Phoenix takes place on Saturday, January 26th, 2019 from The Talking Stick Resort Arena during WWE Royal Rumble weekend.
