WWE NXT Takeover 2014: Full Preview, Rumors and More for Event

Welcome to Bleacher Report's preview for the May 28 episode of NXT on the WWE Network. This week's show is a live two-hour special called NXT Takeover. This is like the equivalent of an NXT pay-per-view, except it airs exclusively on the WWE Network.

WWE has been hyping this event for weeks, with several matches already being advertised in advance to incentivize viewers.

All three NXT titles will be on the line along with a No. 1-contenders match for the NXT title. There is one additional singles match scheduled with the likelihood of a few more being added during the show.

Adam Rose will be taking on Camacho in singles action. WWE audiences have only had a chance to actually see Rose wrestle on NXT, so if you haven't watched him before, this is your chance to see what he can offer.

Rose is currently in the midst of a debut push with WWE, while Camacho has been relegated to NXT since Hunico was put under the Sin Cara mask. The outcomes of this match seems pretty obvious.

The No. 1-contenders match for the NXT title will see the egotistical, selfie-obsessed Tyler Breeze taking on the highly talented Sami Zayn.

This is one of the matches that could very well steal the show. Breeze is a talented competitor with a lot to offer and Zayn is a technically gifted performer who can do almost anything he wants inside that ring.

We will probably see a few exciting spots during this match, but seeing who comes away with a future title shot is what people will really be watching for.

Speaking of the NXT Championship, current champion Adrian Neville will be defending his title against the current No. 1 contender, Tyson Kidd.

Kidd has been hyping this match on Twitter recently, calling it a new start and a second chance for him to show the WWE Universe what he is capable of.

Kidd and Neville will deliver a great performance without question. Kidd is known to be one of WWE's most underrated talents, while Neville is a rising star in the company. This will be very fun to watch.

However, Kidd is not the only Hart Dynasty member receiving a title shot at NXT Takeover. Charlotte and Natalya will be facing off the tournament finals to crown a new NXT Divas champion.

The two second-generation Divas will be accompanied to the ring by their legendary family members Ric Flair and Bret Hart.

Charlotte is really becoming a force to be reckoned with in NXT, while Natalya is already considered one of the most technically gifted Divas in the company.

Considering this is a bigger NXT event than the usual pre-taped show, these two women will be looking to impress everyone watching and prove that the women in the company can be just as good as the men.

The NXT champions will also be in action when The Ascension defend their titles against the team of Kalisto and El Local, who is better known to WWE fans as Ricardo Rodriguez.

With the Ascension being a hot act in NXT and both Kalisto and El Local being veterans of the business, this could also be a match that steals the show.

It is a safe bet that some big WWE names will also show up during the event to make things seem more important, but it's the NXT talent who will be shining on the show.

NXT Arrival was a great show, and Takeover is set to outperform that show with what we have scheduled. Hopefully everything goes off without a hitch and WWE can show everyone that the next generation of Superstars is ready to carry the torch.

Will you be watching Takeover? Which match are you looking forward to the most?
