Johnny Gargano vs. Andrade “Cien” Almas
Although there wasn’t much of a build for this match, I have all the confidence in the world that they will do fine without it. Two highly talented wrestlers having a match just because is never a bad thing. Don’t be surprised to see these two tear the roof off the Barclays Center.
Winner: Johnny Gargano
Aleister Black vs. Hideo Itami
Two of the best strikers in the company are about to throw down in a pay-per-view match and it is going to be epic. Although Itami’s career is definitely on an up-swing, Black has been building longer and will take the victory.
Winner: Aleister Black
The Authors of Pain (c) vs. SAnitY
NXT Tag Team Championship Match
I don’t want The Authors of Pain to win, but at the same time, I think it’s highly unlikely that they do 3 title changes in one night and I’m pretty confident in the other two, so I think AoP will be the ones to retain. I do think SAnitY will bring down the titans at some point, just maybe not in Brooklyn this weekend.
Winner: The Authors of Pain
Asuka (c) vs. Ember Moon
NXT Women’s Championship Match
Asuka’s reign as the queen of NXT has been nothing short of legendary, but it’s most likely coming to an end on Saturday. As much as I love Asuka, I think WWE picked the perfect woman to dethrone her. Ember Moon is an excellent performer both in and out of the ring and absolutely deserving of a title run.
Winner: Ember Moon
Bobby Roode (c) vs. Drew McIntyre
NXT Championship Match
Bobby Roode has made a fantastic heel champion over the last 200 days. He has made us despise him in spite of his insanely catchy entrance music, but the story calls for a new face of NXT. Drew McIntyre is a prime candidate for NXT Champion and will probably get the best of Roode on Saturday.
Winner: Drew McIntyre
