This Saturday NXT returns to Brooklyn. Emulating live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York is WWE NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III.
Here is a preview for WWE NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III.
NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III
Bobby Roode VS Drew McIntyre: NXT Championship
For the first-time since re-signing for WWE in April, Drew McIntyre gets his first championship opportunity. He shall face current reigning NXT Champion Bobby Roode, in NXT TakeOver’s main-event of the evening.
Since departing WWE in 2014, Drew McIntyre was one of independent wrestling’s hottest stars. Becoming a global star in the industry, signing for NXT was a huge move for the brand. Now McIntyre is a pinfall away from becoming NXT Champion.
As for his opponent Bobby Roode, this event essentially marks a year in NXT. Therefore with this in mind one has to wonder how much longer he will be in NXT for. In addition to this it would be logical for us to believe his main-roster call-up is imminent. Which will be…… yes, GLORIOUS!
As for my prediction, I am predicting a Drew McIntyre victory, thus crowning a new NXT Champion.
Prediction: Drew McIntyre to defeat Bobby Roode to become new NXT Champion.
Asuka VS Ember Moon: NXT Women’s Championship
For over 500 days Asuka has held the NXT Women’s Championship. The Empress has driven through the competition for the last 15 months, ruling the women’s division in NXT. However she faces her most unique challenge yet, in the form of Ember Moon once again.
Is NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III the final time we saw Asuka hold the NXT Women’s Champion? At this point in her 500 day reign as champion, no one has been able to topple her. Anyone who has stepped up has been knocked down. But what challenge does the unorthodox Ember Moon have to offer?
Expect a unique contest between two of NXT’s best in the women’s division. The Barclays Center shall potentially host a match it may never forget.
After 500 days as champion I believe Asuka’s reign is up. I believe Ember Moon will become the new NXT Women’s Champion.
Prediction: Ember Moon to defeat Asuka to become NXT Women’s Champion.
The Authors of Pain VS Sanity: NXT Tag Team Championships
A truly hard-hitting bout, as The Authors of Pain defend the NXT Tag Team Championships against Sanity.
Both teams are absolute bohemians, thus this contest shall be utmost interesting. Perhaps this bout shall provide a new insight for the NXT crowd to get into, as it is a tag team bout we have not seen the likes of before. Essentially hard-hitting would be an understatement really!
As for my prediction I am with the Authors of Pain retaining the NXT Tag Team Champions.
Prediction: The Authors of Pain to defeat Sanity to retain the NXT Tag Team Championships.
Aleister Black VS Hideo Itami
Hideo Itami is a changed man. Since losing his NXT Championship bout against Bobby Roode, Itami is taking no prisoners. At NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III, he shall face Aleister Black.
Also since debuting in NXT, Aleister Black has been a breath of fresh air. Black has been something new for the NXT universe to sink their teeth into. I for one am looking forward to this forthcoming bout at NXT TakeOver. A unique mix of styles shall be something to prosper and look forward to. This match has the potential to maybe sneak match of the night? maybe.
As for my prediction, I am with a victory for Aleister Black.
Prediction: Aleister Black to defeat Hideo Itami.
Johnny Gargano VS Andrade Almas
NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III: The return of Johnny Wrestling? Since the end of #DIY, Johnny Gargano has set his sights on a singles career in NXT, much to the delight of the NXT universe. He faces Andrade Almas this Saturday.
The birth of Johnny Gargano’s singles career starts now, the NXT universe could potentially be in for a treat with this. One of the independent wrestling’s most cherished stars has finally come out of his shell, in singles competition. Andrade Almas may not know what’s coming!
I am with a victory for Johnny Gargano at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III.
Prediction: Johnny Gargano to defeat Andrade Almas.
