The WWE held their most recent Nxt Takeover event last night in Chicago, and the entire brand looks very different after the show went off the air. Here is a look at the major angles that came out of the event and what the future might hold for the Wwe Network brand.

Bobby Roode needs a new challenger

The Chicago NXT TakeOver event had an interesting NXT title match. Bobby Roode put his title on the line against Hideo Itami. This is interesting because when Itami signed with NXT, he was supposed to be a huge star.

However, a shoulder injury sidelined him for over a year, and names like Finn Balor and Shinsuke Nakamura ended up eclipsing him in the eyes of the WWE and the NXT fans. Last night, Itami finally got his shot at the NXT title and Bobby Roode.

While announcer Nigel McGuinness tried his best to put over Hideo Itami, especially reminding Ring of Honor fans of the amazing matches he had with Daniel Bryan when he was known as KENTA, he just has lost something in the eyes of fans who fell in love with Shinsuke Nakamura.

The NXT match saw Itami turn in a great effort, but Bobby Roode won the match and did it clean, without needing to cheat. There is no telling what is next for Itami in the WWE, but his days in NXT seems to be coming to an end, and it is time for a new contender for Bobby Roode.

The biggest name right now is Roderick Strong. After beating Eric Young last night, Strong has been pushed as a major babyface, and the NXT fans bought into it last night. Other possibilities are two men who did not fight last night at NXT TakeOver, and those men are Aleister Black and Drew Galloway.

DIY implodes to close the show

The most beloved babyface team on NXT was easily DIY. Last night, in the main event, they got a chance to beat The Authors of Pain in a ladder match, but they fell short. It was an amazing match, and the fans were solidly behind DIY the entire time. However, what happened as the show went off the air was amazing.

Tomasso Ciampa turned on Johnny Gargano and destroyed him to finish NXT TakeOver: Chicago. Ciampa didn't just beat up his tag team partner, but he destroyed him.

It was similar to the WWE moment where Kevin Owens turned on Chris Jericho or the classic moment when Shawn Michaels turned on Marty Jannetty. These two men will now feud in NXT, and they should put on some of the best matches on the brand.

The WWE U.K. brand

While this is no knock on NXT, the best match last night was a five-star match between Tyler Bate and Pete Dunn, where Dunn won the U.K. title from Bate. It was possibly the best match of the year from the WWE, regardless of brand, and it shows that the new WWE Network U.K.

show should be can't miss television for anyone who loves professional wrestling.
