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
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
