NXT returns to the Windy City once again. WWE NXT TakeOver Chicago emulates live from the Allstate Arena. Here is a preview for WWE NXT TakeOver Chicago.
WWE NXT TakeOver: Chicago Preview
Aleister Black vs Lars Sullivan: NXT Championship
The reign of Aleister Black faces its first challenge in form of Lars Sullivan. Since winning the NXT Championship at TakeOver New Orleans, Black is yet to defend his championship. But now he shall face a mountain of a challenge, as he faces Lars Sullivan.
While I do not see Black’s reign ending yet, there is no doubt Sullivan will provide a unique challenge for the NXT Champion.
I can only foresee Black retaining the NXT Championship.
Prediction: Aleister Black to defeat Lars Sullivan to retain the NXT Championship.
Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong vs Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch: NXT Tag Team Championship
The Undisputed Era is well and truly underway. But can Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch stump the seemingly unstoppable duo of Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong, to become the NXT Tag Team Champions?
There is no doubt that the next NXT Tag Team Champions will be the chosen ones. This is because the Undisputed Era have been on top of the world, thus the next team need to exceed the expectations and standards set.
I am adamant the Undisputed Era will retain the titles.
Prediction: Kyle O’Reily & Roderick Strong to retain the NXT Tag Team Champions.
Johnny Gargano vs Tommaso Ciampa: Street Fight
The greatest rivalry in recent WWE history comes to an end. One year after it began, the climax is near as Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa finishes their bitter feud where it began.
There previous match at TakeOver New Orleans was one of the best WWE matches in sometime. But we could be in for something even better and more special in Chicago.
I am with Tommaso Ciampa concluding the feud with a victory.
Prediction: Tommasso Ciampa to defeat Johnny Gargano.
Ricochet vs Velveteen Dream
Two of NXT’s brightest stars will clash at TakeOver Chicago, in what will be a thrilling contest.
Since his arrival, Ricochet had dropped jaws across the WWE universe, with his amazing agility and high-flying caliber. There is no doubt he is a future star at the very top of the company.
Also, one cannot write off the bright future that the Velveteen Dream possesses. One of the most unique and fluent wrestlers to come through NXT, will most certainly be a huge player in the forthcoming years.
At TakeOver Chicago, I think Ricochet shall take the victory.
Prediction: Ricochet to defeat Velveteen Dream.
Shayna Baszler vs Nikki Cross: NXT Women’s Championship
The feud between Shayna Baszler and Nikki Cross has been a tad confusing. Initially helping Dakota Kai, Cross now has the opportunity to win the NXT Women’s Championship herself.
Now this may sound harsh, but this is the first time ever I believe the NXT Women’s division has been in a drought of sorts.
I can only see Baszler retaining her title in Chicago.
Prediction: Shayna Baszler to defeat Nikki Cross to retain the NXT Women’s Championship.
