NXT TAKEOVER: STAND & DELIVER PREDICTIONS
NXT STAND & DELIVER MATCH CARD
Toxic Attraction (Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne) (c) vs. Raquel González and Dakota Kai. Tag Team match for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship
This match is happening on the kickoff show which is the only reason that we think Toxic Attraction are retaining the titles. It feels weird that Dakota and Raquel are friends again all of a sudden. But we’re just glad that we have women’s tag teams. Toxic Attraction’s reign will continue after a decent match. Dakota and Raquel will be the ones to take the titles off of Toxic Attraction later down the line.
OUR PREDICTION: TOXIC ATTRACTION
Carmelo Hayes (c) vs. Santos Escobar vs. Solo Sikoa vs. Grayson Waller vs. Cameron Grimes. Fatal five-way ladder match for the NXT North American Championship
This match will most likely kick off the show and just based off of the way that WWE is booking Carmelo Hayes, he will most likely retain. The only other option would be Solo Sikoa winning. WWE is clearly high on him and he has a good win to loss ratio so far in NXT. Carmelo Hayes should have a long reign with the title though and he will retain after a great match.
OUR PREDICTION: CARMELO HAYES
Tommaso Ciampa vs. Tony D’Angelo. Singles Match
This will most likely be Tommaso Ciampa’s last NXT match before he is called up to the main roster. This match is the hardest to predict because will Tomasso Ciampa put someone over on his way out, or go out with a win. We think Tony D’Angelo will win this match and possibly, he could win the North American Champion by the end of the year.
OUR PREDICTION: TONY D’ANGELO
Mandy Rose (c) vs. Cora Jade vs. Io Shirai vs. Kay Lee Ray. Fatal four-way match for the NXT Women’s Championship
The only reason we believe that Mandy Rose is winning this match is because we think Toxic Attraction are going to retain their tag team titles earlier in the night. Cora Jade should be the one to beat Mandy Rose eventually but Mandy Rose is going to easily retain here and hold the belt for another 2-3 months.
OUR PREDICTION: MANDY ROSE
Imperium (Fabian Aichner and Marcel Barthel) (c) vs. The Creed Brothers (Brutus Creed and Julius Creed) (with Malcolm Bivens) vs. MSK (Nash Carter and Wes Lee). Triple Threat Tag Team match for the NXT Tag Team Championship
We think it’s time for the tag team division to be centered around The Creed Brothers. Imperium has done a great job as champions but it’s time for a change. Bring MSK to the main roster on SmackDown and have The Creed Brothers win the titles. Maybe bring Imperium back to NXT UK to add much needed star power to that brand?
OUR PREDICTION: THE CREED BROTHERS
LA Knight vs. Gunther. Singles match
This match is going to be amazing, but we all know who’s winning. Gunther is going to pick up the win here. We would love to see him become NXT Champion by the end of the year but we doubt that’s going to happen. A big win here could be great to set him on that path. This should be LA Knight’s final NXT match before he is finally called up to the main roster too.
OUR PREDICTION: GUNTHER
Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. Bron Breakker. Singles match for the NXT Championship
The only reason Dolph Ziggler won the NXT Championship was to be a transitional champion. He won so he could lose the title back to Bron Breakker in front of a big audience. This match probably won’t last long and after Ziggler will be sent back to RAW.
OUR PREDICTION: BRON BREAKKER
