NXT TakeOver: Toronto II was a professional wrestling show in the NXT TakeOver series which took place on August 10, 2019 at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The event was produced by WWE, showcasing its NXT developmental brand, and streamed live on the WWE Network.

Production

Background

TakeOver is a series of professional wrestling shows that began on May 29, 2014, as the WWE developmental territory NXT held their second WWE Network exclusive live broadcast billed as TakeOver. In subsequent months, the "TakeOver" moniker became the brand used by WWE for all of their NXT live specials. The 2019 Toronto event was the 26th NXT TakeOver event and the second in the TakeOver: Toronto chronology.

Storylines

The card comprised five matches. The matches resulted from scripted storylines, where wrestlers portrayed heroes, villains, or less distinguishable characters that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches. Results were predetermined by WWE's writers on the NXT brand, while storylines were produced on their weekly television program, NXT.

At TakeOver: XXV, Adam Cole defeated Johnny Gargano to win the NXT Championship. On the July 17 episode of NXT, Cole and Gargano confronted each other and a brawl ensued. NXT General Manager William Regal then scheduled the two in a two-out-of-three falls match for the title at TakeOver: Toronto with Cole and Gargano respectively choosing the stipulations for the first two falls; however, Regal will decide the final stipulation if there is a tie. On the July 24 episode of NXT, Gargano and Cole chose their stipulations. Gargano chose a street fight, while Cole chose a singles match.

Event

Preliminary matches

The event opened with The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford) defending the NXT Tag Team Championship against The Undisputed Era (Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly). Ford performed a Frog Splash on O'Reilly to retain the title.

Next, Io Shirai faced Candice LeRae. Shirai forced LeRae to pass out to a Grounded Koji Clutch to win the match.

After that, The Velveteen Dream defended the NXT North American Championship against Roderick Strong and Pete Dunne. Strong performed the End of Heartache on Dunne but Dream performed a Purple Rainmaker on Strong and Dunne. Dream pinned Dunne to retain the title.

In the penultimate bout, Shayna Baszler defended the NXT Women's Championship against Mia Yim. Baszler forced Yim to submit to a Figure Four Headscissors to retain the title.

Main event

In the main event, Adam Cole defended the NXT Championship against Johnny Gargano in a 2 out of 3 Falls match. The first fall was a singles match. Gargano was disqualified for striking Cole with a chair, meaning Cole won the first fall. The second fall was a Street Fight. Gargano forced Cole to submit to the Garga-No-Escape to win the second fall. The third fall was a Barbed Wire Steel Cage match. Cole performed a Panama Sunrise on Gargano for a near-fall. Cole performed a Panama Sunrise off a ladder on Gargano for a near-fall. Gargano performed an Avalanche Front Flip Piledriver on Cole for a two count. Atop the cage, Cole and Gargano fell through a table. Cole pinned Gargano to retain the title 2-1.
