Here is my predictions for NXT Takeover: Chicago

Roderick Strong vs. Eric Young – PREDICTION: Roderick Strong

Tyler Bate (C) vs. Pete Dunne for the WWE United Kingdom Championship – PREDICTION: Pete Dunne.

The Authors of Pain (C) vs. #DIY in a Ladder Match for the NXT Tag Team Championship: PREDICTION: Authors of Pain

Asuka (C) vs. Ruby Riot vs. Nikki Cross for the NXT Women’s Championship – PREDICTION: Nikki Cross!

Bobby Roode (C) vs. Hideo Itami for the NXT Championship – PREDICTION: Hideo Itami.


Here is my predictions for WWE BackLash PPV:

Non-Title Matches

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Dolph Ziggler – PREDICTION: Shinsuke Nakamura – It would be Shinsuke’s first main roster match and Dolph is now just a talent enhancer. Should be an entertaining match!

Sami Zayn vs. Baron Corbin – PREDICTION: Baron Corbin – Zayn has nothing to lose here and it would be nice to see Corbin getting a push after his fued with Dean Ambrose ended.

Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English (Kickoff Match) – PREDICTION: Tye Dillinger – Aiden English in my opinion is just talent enhancement and it would be nice for Tye to get his first PPV win.

Luke Harper vs. Erick Rowan – PREDICTION: Luke Harper – This one is hard to call as they are both from the Wyatt family, but Harper has really come out of his shell in the last few weeks and I would like to see that transpire with a victory.

Naomi, Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch vs. Natalya, Carmella & Tamina in a Six-Woman Tag Team Match – PREDICTION: Naomi, Charlotte & Becky – Charlotte needs to overcome the ‘Welcoming committee’ with help from her BFF, Becky and SD Women’s champion Naomi for the victory.

Title Matches

Kevin Owens (C) vs. AJ Styles for the WWE United States Championship – PREDICTION: AJ Styles – Canada v USA for the US Title…Makes sense for the belt to go to an American… It’s like if Shinsuke Nakamura winning the UK Championship belt…It just doesn’t make sense.

The Usos (C) vs. Breezango for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship- PREDICTION: The Usos – Breezango is a jobber tag team and probably won’t win, but if WWE make a move like what they done with Heath Slater and Rhyno, then they could win it.

Randy Orton (C) vs. Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship – PREDICTION: Randy Orton. – This is really the most difficult choice that I had to make. Jinder really has been brought into the spotlight and I wouldn’t be surprised if he won. I would like to see Randy retain until Summerslam at the very earliest. He should be on a big title run. I have already changed my choice twice…and I could change it again before the show starts…

And that is my predictions. Who do YOU think is going to win the matches at the weekend, let me know in the comments below πŸ™‚
