The following is a cross-post from my dedicated Wrestling blog at https://wressling.blog
For the 4th time, WWE’s Yellow & Black brand, NXT is taking over the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York for the pre-Summerslam PPV.
Without further ado, let’s predict this PPV:
|EC3||vs||The Velveteen Dream|
|PREDICTION: EC3 has been a breath of fresh air since appearing on NXT and a being in a high profile match against Dream can only accelerate his career and he can be on the main roster within a year which I would love to see. I love Dream’s matches and he will be exciting to watch. Velveteen Dream to win.|
|NXT North American Championship Match|
|Adam Cole (C)||vs||Ricochet|
|PREDICTION: This should be one of the matches of the night (What am I saying, all the matches should be matches of the night 😛 ) but Ricochet is a fantastic wrestler and has the potential to make this match a 5 Star match. Adam Cole is a really good champion but he doesn’t need to have the title to be ‘big’. Ricochet to win the title.|
|NXT Tag Team Championship Match|
|The Undisputed ERA (C)||vs||Moustache Mountain|
|PREDICTION: ERA is probably the best tag team in wrestling today and between the 3 of them. They could hold the NXT Tag Team Championships for a very long time (Hopefully they will only lose them when they decide to go to the main roster) – In saying that, I do love Tyler Bate in Moustache Mountain and what they have achieved in the NXT UK division. I would like to see them take the titles and bring it with them to the NXT UK shows and put on a great performance there. Moustache Mountain to win the title.|
|NXT Women’s Championship Match|
Shayna Baszler (C)
|PREDICTION: This is a re-match that has been a year in the making. A rematch of the initial Mae Young Classic tournament but this time, it is for the NXT Women’s Championship match. Kairi’s elbow is probably the best in the business but Shayna has great MMA skills that can help her retain the championship, Both of them are tough fighters so I would like to see them have a long match. Kairi Sane to win the title.|
|NXT Championship Match|
|Tomasso Ciampa (C)||vs||Johnny Gargano|
|PREDICTION: Well, this is the match that I have been looking for. These two have had the best fued in ALL of WWE for the last good few years and it is nice to see a conclusion to this. I predict that this is going to be a hard hitting match as we have seen in the last couple of matches that they have had and with that, I would love to see Johnny to come out on top and become the NEW NXT Champion. Johnny Gargano to win the title.|
So there we go, I have ALL the titles change hands tonight as there is potential for call ups after Summerslam. Ciampa, ERA, Cross…Maybe a few more,..who knows.
I will more than likely NOT live tweeting the event this time but I am looking forward to it!
