NXT TakeOver WarGames: Match Card, Predictions, and Analysis

NXT TakeOver WarGames

Kassius Ohno vs. Lars Sullivan


It seems they banked on star power to bypass the build for this match, and it totally worked because I’m pumped for it even without a long story to sell it. This will be the first TakeOver match for both men and I fully expect them to tear each other apart.

Winner: Lars Sullivan


Aleister Black vs. Velveteen Dream


These two amazing (and polar opposite) performers have had me right in the palm of their hand throughout their entire feud. I think Aleister wins the match, but it’s hard-fought and he finally calls his opponent ‘Velveteen’ out of respect when it’s over.

Winner: Aleister Black


Ember Moon vs. Kairi Sane vs. Nikki Cross vs. Peyton Royce (w/Billie Kay)

NXT Women’s Championship Fatal 4-Way


I can’t say enough about these four ladies. They are all at the top of their division, and each is equally deserving of a title reign. That being said, I think the Iconic Era is rapidly approaching and we see Peyton claim the championship on Saturday.

Winner: Peyton Royce


Drew McIntyre vs. Andrade Almas (w/Zelina Vega)

NXT Championship Match


Andrade Almas has really hit his stride with the addition of Zelina Vega, and I don’t doubt he’ll be champion in the future, but I don’t think it’s his time quite yet. This is sure to be exciting, however, and I’m looking forward to seeing them pull out all the stops for this championship bout.

Winner: Drew McIntyre


The Authors of Pain and Roderick Strong vs. SAnitY vs. The Undisputed Era

WarGames Match


If anyone can bring WarGames back and make it awesome, it’s Triple H and the guys of NXT.

Nine competitors combined with two rings, a cage, and a long list of rules makes one hell of a challenge, but I think they can pull it off. With no true babyface team, this is an interesting matchup and I wouldn’t be surprised to see them all fight a little dirty, which could make it even more fun to watch.

All three teams are great, but The Undisputed Era has been on fire since their NXT debut and I can easily see them walking away victorious on Saturday night.

Winner: The Undisputed Era
