NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 Drinking Game

NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 predictions by way of a drinking game. Seriously, don’t try this at home.

It’s Summerslam weekend which means NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 is here! Of course, that also means the NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 Drinking Game is also here!

As usual, this game is presented as a fun way to try to predict the results of an upcoming NXT TakeOver event. We obviously do not advocate actually playing this game due to the extreme nature of the challenge presented here. In other words, don’t try this at home.

Standard Turn Heel drinking game rules apply for the NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 Drinking Game: If you’re playing on “Easy Mode” take a sip of beer or of a mixed drink when the game calls for it. If you’re playing on “Hardcore Mode” take a full shot of hard liquor or down an entire can/bottle of beer each time the game calls for it.

ADDITIONAL DISCLAIMER: Only partake in the consumption of adult beverages if you are of legal age in your locale! (Hi, Facebook!)

It’s a NXT TakeOver, so there are no matches on the Kickoff Show. I’ve gone ahead and made some general rules that apply to both the Kickoff Show and NXT TakeOver event itself.

NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 Drinking Game – General Rules

Take a shot:

If Renee Young is on the pre-show panel

Each time we see anyone arriving at the arena “earlier today”

If William Regal adds any stipulations or changes any matches during the Kickoff Show

If the Undisputed Era arrive to the arena in a convertible

Each time we see the “parking lot footage” of the aftermath of the attack on Aleister Black

Take 2 shots:

If we get any more clues on the “whodunit” involving Aleister Black

Each time we see someone from NXT UK in the crowd

If Kassius Ohno crashes the pre-show panel or joins commentary during the main show

If Tyler Breeze is shown in the crowd

If Lacey Evans and/or Vanessa Bourne join the Kickoff Show panel

Take 3 shots:

If Pat McAfee is on the panel and is wearing shorts again

If the show runs longer than 10:30pm Eastern (even with the earlier start time)

Take 4 shots:

If William Regal has to get involved at any point during the show

For each WWE Hall of Famer shown sitting in the crowd

If any of the announced matches don’t happen for any reason

NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 Drinking Game

NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 Drinking Game - EC3, Velveteen Dream


EC3 vs. Velveteen Dream

Take a shot:

If Velveteen Dream’s tights have an airbrushed EC3 face on the crotch

If we get to see that awesome pool side pre-taped vignette again

If Dream slides out of the ring backwards

If Dream wears a fanny pack to the ring

If this match doesn’t go on first

Take 2 shots:

If Velveteen Dream’s tights have an airbrushed “1%” logo on them somewhere

If EC3 crotches Dream on the ropes to prevent a Purple Rainmaker

Each time EC3 says “Top 1% Percent” during the match

Each time the crowd chants “Fanny Pack”

Take 3 shots:

If Kona Reeves gets involved in the match for any reason

If EC3 goes over clean with the One Percenter

If Velveteen Dream goes over clean with the Purple Rainmaker

Take 4 shots:

For each finisher kicked out of by either man

If EC3 gets a special “TakeOver entrance”

Take 25 shots:

If Dixie Carter debuts in WWE and causes a distraction that allows EC3 to win

Take 50 shots:

If “Real American” hits and classic red and yellow Hulk Hogan comes out to give Velveteen Dream the big boot

Prediction: Velveteen Dream. I was on the fence until the go home show’s promo segment. EC3 hitting the One Percenter on Dream to send us to this match leads me to believe that Dream will pull this one out now.

NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 Drinking Game - Adam Cole, Ricochet


Adam Cole (c) vs. Ricochet (NXT North American Championship Match)

Take a shot:

Each time the crowd chants “Bay Bay”

Each time either guy dives

For each member of NXT UK shown in the crowd during the entrances

For any table spots during the match

Take 2 shots:

If Adam Cole comes out alone

For each “This is awesome” chant

If Adam Cole retains by way of help or a distraction from Fish, O’Reilly, and/or Strong

If Ricochet kicks out of the Last Shot

Take 3 shots:

“…and new, NXT North American Champion, Ricochet!”

If Cole retains, cleanly, with his finisher

If Pete Dunne gets involved in the match for any reason

Take 4 shots:

If Cole kicks out of the 630

If Lars Sullivan returns after the match to lay out the winner

Take 5 shots:

If Kassius Ohno turns heel, joins the Undisputed Era, and allows Cole to retain

Prediction: I think Ricochet pulls it off here. With Fish injured and the rest of the Era wrapped up in the tag title match, for once it’s a “fair fight”. For whatever reason, I see Cole regaining in a rematch by way of help from a new Era member (maybe Ohno?) but do not really see them adding someone to faction just to help Cole retain in Brooklyn.

NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 Drinking Game - Undisputed Era, Moustache Mountain


Undisputed Era (c) vs. Moustache Mountain (NXT Tag Team Championship Match)

Take a shot:

Each time Trent and/or Tyler primp their moustaches

Each time Kyle plays the tag title belt like a guitar

If Strong and/or O’Reilly mouth the word “boom” during their entrance

If either Adam Cole (Bay Bay) or Bobby Fish accompany Undisputed Era to the ring


For the duration of any airplane spins

Take 2 shots:

For each backbreaker that Strong connects with

For each finisher that is kicked out of

If the Era’s strategy involves trying to destroy Trent Seven’s leg again

If the Era retain by way of outside interference

Take 3 shots:

If Bobby Fish’s trophy is involved in the match’s finish

If Undisputed Era go over clean

If Bobby Fish and/or Adam Cole cause a distraction at any point

Each time all four guys are down on the mat and/or arena floor

Take 4 shots:

If Moustache Mountain shock Brooklyn and take the tag titles home with them to the UK

If War Raiders get involved in the match

Take 5 shots:

If someone new joins the Undisputed Era to help them retain the titles

If War Raiders lay out the winners of the match

Take 6 shots:

If Tyler Bate joins the Undisputed Era and helps them retain the titles

If the match ends in a DQ, no contest, or count out

Prediction: Undisputed Era retain. I mean, they’ve telegraphed it already on the weekly show with Bate beating Strong on the go home show. Add into that the forthcoming UK NXT show having a tag division. I will be truly shocked if Moustache Mountain win the straps here.

NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 Drinking Game - Shayna Baszler, Kairi Sane


Shayna Baszler (c) vs. Kairi Sane (NXT Women’s Championship Match)

Take a shot:

Each time Shayna attempts to break Kairi’s arm

If the weird “horse sound” is absent from the beginning of Shayna’s entrance theme

Each time that Kairi escapes the Kirafuda Clutch

If commentary mentions “the four horsewomen” at any point

Take 2 shots:

For each Insane Elbow that Kairi drops

If Aliyah gets involved to exact revenge from her devastating loss to Kairi

Each time the Mae Young Classic is referenced on commentary

If any former NXT Superstars are seen in the crowd before or during this match

Take 3 shots:

If Kairi taps out or passes out in the Kirafuda Clutch

If Shayna going after Kairi’s elbow prevents her from using the “Insane Elbow”

If they let Renee Young join commentary for this match

Take 4 shots:

If Shayna retains via pin fall

If Shayna escapes from Kairi’s “Anchor” submission

Take 5 shots:

If Jessamyn Duke and/or Marina Shafir debut to help Shayna retain

If Nikki Cross gets involved at any point

“… and New NXT Women’s Champion, Kairi Sane”

Take 100 shots:

If Ronda Rousey gets involved in the finish of the match

Prediction: Shayna Baszler retains. I might be wrong here and I’ll admit my prediction is largely colored by my admiration of Baszler’s run as NXT Women’s Champion. They’ve done a decent enough job in recent weeks to build up Kairi as a viable challenger AND Shayna has been aloof as usual. I feel that when Shayna does lose, it’ll be due to her own hubris in underestimating her challenger. But, I’m not entirely convinced that it will be Kairi who beats her.

NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4 Drinking Game - Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano


Tommaso Ciampa (c) vs. Johnny Gargano (Last Man Standing Match for the NXT Championship)

Take a shot:

If Gargano comes out dressed like a character from a Marvel film

Each time a knee brace is used as a weapon

Each time we get a call back to a spot from a previous match in this feud

Each time someone answers the ref’s count at 9

Take 2 shots:

For each crutch shot

For each crotch shot

If either guy gets color

Each time the crowd chants “10” for each number of the ref’s count

If the finish happens outside the ring

Take 3 shots:

Each time Ciampa escapes the Gargano Escape

If a fan jumps the rail and tries to attack Ciampa at any point before or during the match

If anyone new debuts during or after this match

If the finish happens in the ring

If Ciampa retains

Take 4 shots:

If Candice LeRae gets involved

If the ref has to be replaced due to a ref bump

“… and new NXT Champion, Johnny Gargano”

Take 5 shots:

If Regal has to get involved for any reason

If Triple H has to get involved for any reason

Take 6 shots:

If Ciampa comes out to actual entrance music

Take 10 shots:

If the match ends in a double KO

Prediction: Ciampa retains. The whole story going into this is how Gargano is destroying himself to beat Ciampa. He’s becoming a monster and I just don’t see Gargano going full “evil” to be able to beat Ciampa. Also, Ciampa is hot as Hell right now, so a Gargano win would mean Ciampa would have nothing to do if he lost. I really see Ciampa staying as champ a little longer to see how the audience reacts to him defending against someone other than Gargano. Of course, now watch Johnny Wrestling finally win the big one on Saturday because I made this prediction.

Well, there’s your drinking game. Be safe on Saturday! I’ll be live tweeting the show on the Turn Heel Twitter and will be back after the show with a recap.
