WWE NXT TakeOver: Chicago II Predictions

This post was originally posted on Wressling.blog

Hi everyone and welcome to my predictions for NXT TakeOver: Chicago II.

There is 3 title matches tonight where the NXT Championship, Women’s Championship and Tag Team Championships are all on the line.

Non-Title Matches
Chicago Street Fight
Johnny Gargano VS Tomasso Ciampa
PREDICTION: This was a hard choice for me as both are really good and I can see both of them going to the main roster either now after MITB or Summerslam, both of them are fantastic! Johnny Gargano to win!

 

Singles Match
Ricochet VS Velveteen Dream
PREDICTION: This is going to be my ‘Match of the Night’ and the two of them will put on a great match together. I feel that Velveteen Dream could come up to the main roster after this match as he has served his purpose. Ricochet is just a fantastic athlete, brilliant spot monkey and he will do well in NXT and WWE. Ricochet to win!
Title Matches
Singles Match for the NXT Women’s Championship
Shayna Baszler (C) VS Nikki Cross
PREDICTION: Nikki Cross is ready to leave NXT to join Sanity and be on the main roster, but I suppose she wanted to have one last title match in NXT against Shayna. I absolutely love Nikki. Her little Scottish devilish heel persona really suits her well but I do not see her claiming the title. Shayna to retain.

 

Tag Team Match for the NXT Tag Team Championship
The Undisputed ERA (C) VS Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch
PREDICTION: ERA are on a roll as one of the best tag teams in WWE of all time and they are only in NXT!! With their superb match at NXT Takeover New Orleans against AoP and Pete Dunne/Roddy Strong and then going on to defend them again at the UK Championship Tournament a few days afterwards makes them the best workers in the WWE. As for Lorcan and Burch, it is simply not their time but should still be a entertaining match none-the-less. The Undisputed ERA to retain!

 

Singles Match for the NXT Championship
Aleister Black (C) VS Lars Sullivan
PREDICTION: Well, this was a shock. Lars in a championship match. This monster is a wreking force in NXT and has become a literal monster and could easily go up against someone like Braun Strowman on the main roster. There isn’t enough of ‘big men’ on the main roster now since most of them have retired and it would be fitting for him to lose the match just for him to get to the main roster. He has done very well in NXT and I can only see him do bigger things in the future.
As for Aleister, there is no one that can stop him at the moment. Maybe EC3 or Ricochet at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn but this is a minor TakeOver in my opinion and he doesn’t need to drop it yet. Aleister to retain!

 

And that is my predictions. If there is any more matches announced on tonight’s NXT, then I will update this post with those matches and updates for this will be posted on Twitter @PFWressling where I will be live-tweeting NXT TakeOver and Money in the Bank PPV!
