Final Lineup For TakeOver: Respect, Push Of Divas & Tag Team Wrestling


Below is what appears to be the final card for WWE NXT TakeOver: Respect, which will air live next week on the WWE Network:

30-Minute Iron Man Match for the WWE NXT Women’s Championship-
Bayley (c) vs. Sasha Banks

Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Finals
- TBD vs. TBD

Singles Match
- Tyler Breeze vs. Apollo Crews

Singles Match
- Dana Brooke vs. Asuka

Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Class Semi-Finals Match
- WWE NXT Champion Finn Balor & Samoa Joe vs. Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson

Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Class Semi-Finals Match
- Jason Jordan & Chad Gable vs. Baron Corbin & Rhyno

This show is obviously the continuation of two initiatives that have been highlighted on main roster programming through the latter part of 2015 - the Divas Revolution and tag team wrestling. It will be interesting to see how a show headlined (not co-headlined as was the case with TakeOver: Brooklyn) by a Divas match goes and whether or not WWE will try the same on a main roster show next year. Ronda Rousey’s success in UFC along with the talented crop of up and coming female workers really has WWE changing the way they view women’s wrestling. For many of us, it’s been a philosophical change of direction that we’ve been waiting on for well over a decade.
