WWE WrestleMania 34 has arrived, and one of the highlights of WrestleMania weekend since 2016 has been the amazing NXT TakeOver cards. Saturday evening, as everyone gets ready for the "Show of Shows" that is 'Mania, the stars of NXT will take center stage as we are presented NXT TakeOver: New Orleans. 

The expected main event sees the enigmatic and dangerous Aleister Black looking to climb to the top of the NXT mountain as he takes on the champion, Andrade "Cien" Almas. Black has torn through the NXT roster since his arrival to the brand, and now he'll look to cement himself as the top star if he can dispose of Almas. In addition to the NXT championship being defended, we'll also see matchups for the women's and tag team championships, as well as find out who the first NXT North American champion in history will be.
