NXT STAND & DELIVER MATCH CARD
Johnny Gargano vs. Grayson Waller. Unsanctioned match
This is the most predictable match of the night. We all know that Johnny Gargano will win his return match to the NXT brand. This may also be Johnny Gargano’s last match for NXT, so he must leave with a win. This could also be Grayson Waller’s last NXT match since they need more NXT guys on the main roster. Either way, Johnny Gargano needs the win as he hasn’t been booked as the strongest on Raw.
OUR PREDICTION: JOHNNY GARGANO
Bron Breakker (c) vs. Carmelo Hayes (with Trick Williams). Singles match for the NXT Championship
It’s time for Bron Breakker to lose the title. He can go up to the main roster after losing this match, but Carmelo Hayes needs this. This is the biggest match they can do on NXT at the moment, and it should be great. Carmelo Hayes as the new NXT Champion will be a joy to see, as will Bron Breakker on the Raw after WrestleMania.
OUR PREDICTION: BRON BREAKKER
Roxanne Perez (c) vs. Zoey Stark vs. Gigi Dolin vs. Tiffany Stratton vs. Lyra Valkyria vs. Indi Hartwell. Ladder match for the NXT Women’s Championship
After Roxanne Perez’s minor injury, she is back and ready to compete. So, she should retain her title here. It would be a great feel-good moment, although there is also an argument for Tiffany Stratton winning. Roxanne Perez deserves a long title run, so we believe that she will remain the NXT Women’s Champion for a little while longer.
OUR PREDICTION: ROXANNE PEREZ
Fallon Henley and Kiana James (c) (with Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen) vs. Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn. Tag team match for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship
The NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships have been treated as a joke. It doesn’t matter who wins this match as the titles are nothing more than glorified props anyways. Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn should win, and hopefully, they can bring some prestige back to those titles, but due to the storyline heading into the match Fallon Henley and Kiana James will retain their titles. This title division needs to be treated with some actual respect sooner or later before no one cares anymore.
OUR PREDICTION: FALLON HENLEY & KIANA JAMES
Wes Lee (c) vs. Dragon Lee vs. JD McDonagh vs. Ilja Dragunov vs. Axiom. Fatal five-way match for the NXT North American Championship
Dragon Lee just made his debut, but he’s been treated like a big star since the second he came into NXT. He will be a future NXT Champion one day, but for now, he needs to win the North American title and hold onto it for a long time. Ilja Dragunov would also be a cool choice of winner, but he doesn’t need it right now, and it would be great to have him on the main roster soon. Wes Lee has had a memorable and fun reign but it’s time that Dragon Lee becomes the new NXT North American Champion.
OUR PREDICTION: DRAGON LEE
Gallus (Mark Coffey and Wolfgang) (c) vs. The Creed Brothers (Brutus Creed and Julius Creed) (with Ivy Nile) vs. The D’Angelo Family (Tony D’Angelo and Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo). Triple threat tag team match for the NXT Tag Team Championship
Another easy match to predict. Gallus just won the titles and the chances of them losing them this soon are very slim. The Creed Brothers need to go up to the main roster after WrestleMania alongside the rest of Diamond Mine, and we all know The D’Angelo Family is not winning those titles anytime soon. Although we could see Dijak come and cost them the match. Gallus should retain and lose the titles way later down the line.
OUR PREDICTION: GALLUS
Chase University (Andre Chase, Duke Hudson, and Thea Hail) and Tyler Bate vs. Schism (Joe Gacy, Jagger Reid, Rip Fowler, and Ava). Eight-person mixed tag team match
In another really predictable match, Chase University is going to take the win here. Schism hasn’t been treated the best, and the added stipulation of the winners getting to own Chase University means that they aren’t winning. Hopefully, Schism will get a good showing, but Chase University is coming out on top.
OUR PREDICTION: CHASE UNIVERSITY
