The most critically acclaimed brand in all of wrestling returns this Saturday with what will unquestionably be another incredible night of action. Lets now take a look at what’s going to happen.
Candace LeRae will battle Io Shirai in a match that many seem to be overlooking. Both Women have proved several times in the past they can steal the show on any given night with what will be a red hot crowd in attendance, we could witness a classic here. This one could really go either way but we are going with a victory for LeRae.
Every time we preview a TakeOver show, this writer predicts a title loss for Shayna Baszler and he is wrong every single time. The match itself with Mia Yim looks like it will be a brutal, hard-hitting war and could very likely go on to be one of the very best Women’s matches in NXT history. Yim seems like the natural successor to the champ here so let’s be daring and once again predict a new champion.
The NXT North American title will be up for grabs when champion Velveteen Dream, Pete Dunne and Roderick Strong battle in a triple threat match. This one has match of the year written all over it and I think it’s safe to say that this match will have us all the world over glued to our screens. Some are suspecting a win for Dunne here and while that could be a possibility, we are sticking with the Dream here as he continues to flourish in his role as champion.
The Street Profits will defend the NXT tag titles against former champions Kyle O’ Reilly and Bobby Fish of The Undisputed Era. The champs have become immensely popular over the last 12 months and have improved in the ring incredibly. The one thing missing has been a big victory over an established team and we believe that this is the night they will definitively put a stamp on their reign as champs with a victory here.
Adam Cole and Johnny Gargano will one more time wage war for the NXT Title in a 2 out of 3 falls epic. Each fall has a stipulation with the 3rd, if needed, fall being a surprise until the night itself. We see fall one going to Gargano, fall two to Cole and the final fall going to Cole and a title retention. Though, we have been very wrong in the past!
Should be another corker folks, Tune in this weekend and let us know what you think.
