WWE: MITB Caused Change in Plan for NXT Takeover Chicago
The NXT Takeover shows have become as big as the PPV events. WWE had hosted each one of them in a more significant way during dual-brand PPV weekends.
So, the WWE Universe expects this special event every time one of these big-four shows comes towards us. The growing popularity of these NXT-special events added one more such show from last year.
We have seen an additional NXT Takeover in Chicago, Illinois, last year. The same schedule will remain, as this show returns on June 16th. A packed card is waiting from the developmental territory. It has the capability of toppling the main roster show, the very next night.

We are getting reports the biggest match of the night had to undergo a major change. The WWE Championship match between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura is the main reason behind this. The rivalry between these two is going on since Wrestlemania season.
We expected a newly stipulated bout for this upcoming bout at MITB.

I, being a man of integrity, stood up for myself.

Nakamura chose it to be a Last Man Standing match between them. Reports from Wrestling Observer Newsletter stated the potential main event of NXT Takeover had the same stipulation.
Now, the NXT officials had changed it to a No Disqualifications affair. Check out the reports from stillrealtous.com,
“At one point the idea was for Tommaso Ciampa to face Johnny Gargano in a Last Man Standing match at TakeOver, but the match is expected to be announced as a street fight after it was decided that AJ Styles will defend his WWE Title against Shinsuke Nakamura in a Last Man Standing match at MITB.”
The rivalry between Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano has become much personal. It is going on since last year onwards. They can’t settle it unless a no-DQ environment is available for them. They are likely to headline this special show on two consecutive occasions.
