Live from the Allstate Arena, emulating from Rosement, Illonis: WWE NXT TakeOver Chicago. For the first time one of WWE’s most historic cities hosts NXT TakeOver. Here is a preview for WWE NXT TakeOver: Chicago.
Bobby Roode VS Hideo Itami: NXT Championship
After two years of ups and downs, Hideo Itami is finally challenging for the NXT Championship. Due to a lengthy spell on the sidelines Itami has yet to showcase his worth in NXT as of yet. However at NXT TakeOver, the WWE Universe shall witness the Japanese superstar, potentially at his best. On the other hand Bobby Roode the current reigning champion, faces a new opponent unlike any other before. Roode seemingly does not have a lot of time left in NXT, as he shall more than likely head for the main roster within the following months. Therefore I believe that Chicago shall once again witness another GTS, with Hideo Itami becoming the new NXT Champion.
Prediction: Hideo Itami To Defeat Bobby Roode to become the new NXT Champion.
Asuka VS Ruby Riot VS Nikki Cross: NXT Women’s Championship
Originally scheduled to be a Fatal Four Way, however Ember Moon was pulled from the planned match, as she sustained an injury, forcing her to miss the event. None the less the NXT Women’s Championship shall be defended in a Triple Threat Match. As Asuka continues to dominate the NXT Women’s division, it is not be believed that either Ruby Riot or Nikki Cross shall take the title from her. Therefore I believe that Asuka shall retain her title once more, then leading to a rematch between herself and Ember Moon, in the following months.
Prediction: Asuka To Retain the NXT Women’s Champion.
The Authors of Pain VS #DIY: Ladder Match For The NXT Tag Team Championships
Perhaps the final rodeo for #DIY, as they look more than likely to be main roster bound in the near future. One can expect an exciting contest, due to the environment of a Ladder Match, especially with Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa involved. Their opponents the current reigning Tag Team Champions The Authors of Pain, look all but set to continue their run of dominance in NXT for the time being. I am with the Authors of Pain to retain the NXT Tag Team Championships.
Prediction: The Authors of Pain to retain NXT Tag Team Championships.
Tyler Bate VS Pete Dunne: WWE UK Championship
Tyler Bate shall defend his WWE UK Championship against Pete Dunne at NXT TakeOver. This is something that is really warming to see, as British wrestling shall finally have something to gloat about. Two of the contestants from the UK Tournament battle it out for the championship, as this shall not be the last time we see the title being defended on WWE TV and PPV. Keeping this one brief; I believe Tyler Bate shall successfully defeat Pete Dunne, therefore retaining the WWE UK Championship.
Prediction: Tyler Bate To Defeat Pete Dunne to retain the WWE UK Championship.
Roderick Strong VS Eric Young
Upon Roderick Strong losing his number one contenders match, Eric Young picked him as a target. Strong has truly been a credit to NXT since his arrival, as the veteran has put in some great displays, which only excite fans for the future. Similarly Eric Young has also done well in NXT, where he has also proved to be value experience for the brand. As for their match at NXT TakeOver; I am with Roderick Strong to go and pick up the win.
Prediction: Roderick Strong To Defeat Eric YoungPowered by Sidelines
