WWE is bringing Summerslam to Toronto next week, but one day prior, NXT TakeOver: Toronto will rock the city and set a very high bar for the main roster to top.

Dave Meltzer’s famous rating system is something that people can place bets on now. However, as he explained on Wrestling Observer Radio, Adam Cole vs Johnny Gargano has a lot to live up to. Because the betting odds are predicting that they will capture five stars in Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter rating system.

“I think this is the first time in WWE history that the betting odds for a match is five stars, year, Cole vs Gargano is five stars which puts a lot of pressure on them that you’re expected to do a five star match. That’s terrible.”

Only time will tell how good Cole vs Gargano will be. Both men have the ability to tell a fantastic story in the ring so it’s totally possible that they will pull off a five star performance.


It is also important to note that Tommaso Ciampa is almost healed up from his neck surgery and slated for a return in just a couple of weeks. He has appeared at TakeOver while not medically cleared in the past to get a little physical so he might be a very interesting X Factor to consider while enjoying NXT TakeOver: Toronto’s main even match.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
