Bradley Jay takes a look at WWE NXT Takeover XXV and tells you why everyone on the card will win! (We know that’s not how this works…but have fun with it!)
I’m going to tell you why everybody on the WWE NXT Takeover XXV card will win, but first…
6. WWE gives us a lot to complain about, but their production crew is best in class. If the Cole-Gargano promo doesn’t get you jacked to the max for Takeover, your wrestlesoul is dead. Now, on to the show.
5. NXT Tag Team Championship Ladder Match
Why Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch will win: They are the ultimate underdogs & the only team no one is talking about. They can fly under the radar, steal a win & create an unforgettable Takeover moment.
Why The Street Profits will win: They are arguably the hottest tag team in all of WWE. The crowd loves them & their victory would be a molten hot way to start the show. It’s also the night Montez Ford shows the world that he is a future Money in the Bank winner.
Why The Forgotten Sons will win: They are angry. Very angry. And their backup Jaxson Riker is very very angry. In fact, his angry makes their angry look like puppy dogs sleeping with your teddy bear. So very angry.
Why The Undisputed Era will win: This is the night Undisputed Era kicks all the ass and walks out with all the gold.
4. Women’s Championship match
Why Shayna Baszler will win: She wants to be the greatest female champion in the history of NXT. She wants us to forget about Asuka. She wants us to forget about The Man and prove to everybody that she is the Alpha Male. Plus, she is PURE EVIL!
Why Io Shirai will win: Did you see what she did to the kendo stick? Little Miss Hello Kitty BFF won’t be making it to Takeover. The Japanese Assassin is taking her place. Io isn’t just out for the win, she’s out for revenge.
3. Matt Riddle versus Roderick Strong
Why Matt Riddle will win: The King of Bros gets his payback for Strong jumping him in the back. Also, best in the world, Super King of Bros, man crush, blah blah blah…
Why Roderick Strong will win: This is the night Undisputed Era kicks all the ass and walks out with all the gold.
2. North American Championship Match
Why Velveteen Dream will win: This is arguably the brightest spotlight in Takeover history, and nobody outshines Velveteen Dream. He’s going to make Prince Pretty wish he was still jobbing on Raw.
Why Tyler Breeze will win: He’s the NXT OG, Original Guy, out to prove that he’s better than his main roster call up. He needs to re-establish himself as a major player & not a punchline.
Time to pick up a new Chairshot shirt!
1. NXT Championship Match
Why Johnny Gargano will win: WWE loves to send a crowd home happy, and what’s the best way to do that? Have your top underdog babyface retain his title at the historic 25th Takeover.
Why Adam Cole will win: This is the night Undisputed Era kicks all the ass and walks out with all the gold, BAY BAY!
That’s right…I said it.
