Just like that, TakeOver Chicago is only four days away. NXT has been hustling through their episodes to get a card ready for TakeOver only seven weeks removed from the WrestleMania weekend live special.

For the first time ever, there will be four championship matches at a TakeOver special, but the card isn’t complete yet. Here are five reasons to watch tonight’s go home episode of NXT.

5. Ohno vs. Almas

Last week’s NXT featured an endless barrage of hype videos and backstage interviews. One of the more intriguing results from those interviews was a match made between Kassius Ohno and Andrade Almas. Ohno has made it known that he wants to do things differently during his second go around with NXT, and a win against the recently unfocused Almas could be the momentum he’s been looking for.

They’re really hyping up Almas’ partying lifestyle getting in the way of his success in the ring, so it seems like he might have a bit farther to fall before he’s able to thrive. While I wouldn’t mind seeing this match on the TakeOver card, I’ll settle for a battle on tonight’s show.
