NXT TakeOver New York Predictions

Main Event of Take over for Vacant NXT title

NXT Takeover New York is Friday April 5th from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. This will be the 5th Takeover Network special from the Barclays Center, but prior 4 had Brooklyn in name. The others all took place in August coinciding with SummerSlam. The show will have 5 title matches, 4 from the NXT brand and one from the NXT UK brand. Here’s a breakdown and Prediction for the show

2 out of 3 Falls NXT Title Match

Adam Cole vs Johnny Gargano

As HHH said on TV a couple of weeks ago this wasn’t the match he had planned but injuries made a change of plans. When NXT champion Tomasso Ciampa went down with a neck injury the main event had a new flavor made. So now the two most over guys in NXT will fight for the vacant title. All signs are pointing to it finally being Johnny’s time. Prediction: Johnny Gargano

NXT Women’s Fatal Four-way
Shayna Baszler vs Io Sharai vs Kairi Sane vs Bianca BelAir

This match has 3 stars and Bianca BelAir. She is again getting a title shot but still hasn’t grown or gotten better. Have a vibe of a setup where Io gets a title reign and starts a feud with jealous BelAir. Prediction: Io Sharai

WWE United Kingdom Championship

Pete Dunne vs Walter

This match very well has a chance to be best match WrestleMania weekend. Pete Dunne has held the UK title an amazing 685 days. His reign and popularity is a major reason WWE launched a second development spot now in England. Walter is no slouch either having toured the world and dominated all over the world. This match has all the makings of a changing of the guard and set up for a main roster call up for Dunne. Prediction: Walter

NXT Tag Team Titles

War Raiders vs Ricochet and Aleister Black

This match will have lots of fun with these four fan favorites. This will he match full of hard hitting, fast paced big spots. But all seems to point to Raiders retaining since Black and Ricochet are main roster bound now. Prediction: War Raiders

NXT North American Title

Velveteen Dream vs Matt Riddle

The match that may be a prelude to many future title encounters for many spots. MMA vs Tough Enough. Charisma vs Charisma. Talent vs Talent. Matt Riddle is loved by fans and he may only be behind Dream in popularity. This will be an emotional ride for sure. Prediction: Velveteen Dream
