Today (by the time i upload this) is WAR-GAMES! I will actually be attending NXT Takeover: WarGames live and I am so excited because this is my first Takeover and I have been waiting for a Takeover to come to Los Angeles since forever! There will be two parts to this blog, part 1 being the actual predictions for the show and part 2 will be about my experience at the show with (maybeeee) a vlog as well. Time for predictions!!
Aleister Black vs. Johnny Gargano
I am honestly excited to see Heel Gargano in this match and to see if his style changes up a bit. I think that it is too soon in Johnny’s heel turn to make him lose. Aleister really does not need the win to still look strong so with that, I feel that Gargano needs this win more than Black.
Predicated Winner: Johnny Gargano
NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler vs. Kairi Sane (2-out-of-3 Falls Match)
The match I am looking forward to a lot! I love Kairi Sane and I really want her to win but also I do not see her winning tonight (unfortunately). WWE is still not ready to put Shayna up on the main roster since they have barely established 3/4 of the MMA FourHorse Women on NXT. I also predict the FourHorse Women will play a key role in the match and having Shayna retain the title.
Predicted Winner: Shayna Baszler
NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa vs. Velveteen Dream
I did not know I needed this match until it was announced at the NXT Tapings. Two completely different types of personalities clashing and it is perfect. I do feel that with any match with The Dream can become a instant classic. If the WarGames match isn’t match of the night, this match will be. With that, I do not see Ciampa dropping the title to the dream tonight but part of me wants to see the Dream as champion. I guess i’m going to go with my heart and pray that the Dream becomes champion.
Predicted Winner: Velveteen Dream
Ricochet, Pete Dunne & The War Raiders vs. The Undisputed ERA (WarGames Match)
WarGames! I can not believe this is happening in LA! A little upset that neither the North American and the NXT Tag Teams titles aren’t being defended at the Takeover but this match makes up for it. With the advantage that Undisputed Era has and the fact that they also won last year, I do not believe that NXT would have Undisputed Era win a second year in a row. This match will definitely be very exciting to watch live!
Predicted Winners: Ricochet, Pete Dunne & The War Raiders
Part 2 will be posted tomorrow where I talk about my experience. It will be uploaded before Survivor Series! And I hope to meet lots of people at tonights show!
