NXT TakeOver: Toronto (2019) Predictions

Summerslam is one of WWE’s big-4 PPVs, but whenever these come around, I’m always so much more excited for the NXT shows. And, despite not watching a lot of NXT recently, this one is no different. So, here are my predictions for tomorrow’s NXT TakeOver.

1 – NXT Championship: Two-out-of-three falls match: Adam Cole © v Johnny Gargano

Cole v Gargano

Prediction: Adam Cole

Adam Cole hasn’t held the Championship for long (winning it from Johnny Gargano at NXT TakeOver XXV), and I think his reign will continue a little while longer. Every time these two have wrestled, their matches have been amazing, and I can’t wait to see what they’ll do to top the previous bouts. That being said, I do wish NXT would lay off these series of matches featuring Johnny Gargano; as amazing as they are, this is the second time these two have wrestled a two-out-of-three falls match, and with such a huge roster, others should have their shots at the Championship, too.

2 – NXT Tag Team Championship: The Street Profits © v The Undisputed Era

Profits v Era

Prediction: The Undisputed Era

This is probably my least assured guess, but I’m combining the Street Profits’ appearance on Raw recently with a possible Undisputed Era clean sweep to come up with The Undisputed Era once-again claiming the gold. Tag team wrestling has always been my least favourite category in WWE, but NXT made me realise that I just hate the main roster’s tag team division (for the most part), as NXT often give top, top showing of their tag division.

3 – NXT North American Championship: Velveteen Dream © v Pete Dunne v Roderick Strong

Dream v Dunne v Strong

Prediction: Pete Dunne

I have absolutely no idea on this match. And that makes it so exciting. Velveteen Dream, to me, feels like he’s had his run, but do they give the title to a member of the Undisputed Era in a clean sweep, or keep one of those titles away from them? I’ve gone with Pete Dunne (even though, as a heel, he can’t really be put in a feud with Roderick Strong to give the Undisputed Era the title at a later date). It’s tough, because I’ve heard Triple H is big on Pete Dunne, but he’s also had his fair share of stables in the past. But, British lad choosing the British lad. Come on, Pete.

4 – NXT Women’s Championship: Shayna Baszler © v Mia Yim

Baszler v Yim

Prediction: Shayna Baszler

I don’t know much about Mia Yim, but there’s no chance Shayna loses her title here. I think Shayna will lose her title before coming up to the main roster, and I don’t think that time is just now (despite the Raw and Smackdown Women’s Champions being both faces).

5 – Single: Candice LeRae v Io Shirai

LeRae v Io

Prediction: Io Shirai

Io has just turned heel after failing to capture the NXT Women’s Championship, so this match, to me, seems the most obvious: Io Shirai to win. It’s a surprise to see a women’s match not for the championship on the card, so I’m interested to see how vicious this is after their feud has gotten intense.
