NXT Takeover Portland Predictions

Tonight the best of the best from NXT will take over Portland Oregon. Who will which match you might ask? Well you came to the right place. I will be going through each match and giving you my honest predictions to see what will happen. Let’s get started.

Johnny Gargano vs Finn Balor

Winner: Finn Balor

As much as I love Johnny Gargano’s comeback since he was taken out by Balor, it doesn’t give me enough thinking that Balor will lose this match. He came back down to NXT and the first thing he did was make a statement by putting Johnny on the shelf. I love a good revenge story as much as the next guy, but it wouldn’t hurt Johnny’s career at all if he lost this match, where it might damage Finn’s now that he is back in NXT.

Tegan Nox vs Dakota Kai

Street Fight

Winner: Dakota Kai

This match would have been much more difficult to call had they not had a singles match on last week’s NXT in which Tegan Nox won. This only makes me think that Dakota Kai will win this brutal street fight. That way a final “rubber” match if you will can take place to decide the true superior woman. Whatever the result may be this one is gonna be great!

Keith Lee vs Dominik Dijakovic

NXT North American Championship

Winner Keith Lee

These two are amazing together in the ring, but I’ve got Lee on this one. It simply doesn’t make sense to take the belt off of him when he is a huge pop with the crowd and he also hasn’t held the belt for very long. Now I know WWE and NXT sometimes love to play the belt swap game, but I don’t see that here. As good as Dominik Dijakovic is he will have to wait longer to hold a belt because Keith Lee is going to make him bask in his glory.

The Undisputed Era vs Matt Riddle and Pete Dunne

NXT Tag Team Championships

Winners: The Undisputed Era

The winners of the Dusty Cup Tag Team Classic take on the NXT Tag Team Champions in what looks like to be an incredible match. Here’s the thing. There has been a lot of push behind the “Bro-ser Weights”, but something tells me that this will end with a conflict between Dunne and Riddle. Once that happens, the Undisputed Era will take advantage and pick up the victory. This will also lead me to believe Dunne could turn heel and attack Riddle post-match. It’s a crazy one, but that’s what I’m going with.

Rhea Ripley vs Bianca Belair

NXT Women’s Championship

Winner: Rhea Ripley

This was honestly probably the easiest match to predict on the night which has me worried a little bit. WWE and NXT love to pull twists and tug at our heart strings on some decision making moments. However, I couldn’t possibly see them making the decision to take the belt off Ripley when it is clear that she and Charlotte will face at Wrestlemania for the belt. Even though the prediction might be set in stone, this is still going to be a great match to watch.

Adam Cole vs Tommaso Ciampa

NXT Championship

Winner: Adam Cole

I get the hype between this match. Ciampa finally gets his rematch after never even losing the belt because of injury. However, I feel like Cole will get the win. The reason being is the fact that I believe someone will get involved or Cole will cheat to win setting up for another match near Wrestlemania weekend. That is when Ciampa will win back the belt and it will be a much more incredible moment for him. Until then however, Cole will retain the belt and keep it for their next encounter.
