While the wrestling world is focused on Wrestlemania this Sunday, the wrestlers from NXT take the stage for NXT Takeover: Orlando. Since NXT has done these Takeover events, they have a tendency to be better than the wrestlers on the main event level. Now i will be looking more in depth at the confirmed matches and I will make my predictions. I will also predict if I see any other matches being added before hand. [Jon]
Here are your confirmed matches for NXT Takeover: Orlando:
Bobby Roode vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the NXT Champion
Ember Moon vs. Asuka for the NXT Woman’s Title
#DIY vs. Authors of Pain vs. The Revival for the NXT Tag titles
Aliester Black (Tommy End) debut vs. Andra “Cien” Almas
As far as what matches I see being added, the only one that sticks out in my mind is Sanity vs. Tye Dillinger, No Way Jose, Rodrick Strong, and the debut of Ruby Riot. I see this match being added to the card as Sanity has been feuding with Tye Dillinger since Takeover: San Antonio. Strong, Jose, and Riot have been plugged in along the way. If this match were to be added, it will be tough to chose a winner. The problem with this match is you don’t want Sanity to lose here cause they are vile towards the future of NXT. On the other side, Tye Dillinger is more than likely moving up to the main roster. Strong, Jose, and Riot could see their stock go up after this event.
If I had to predict a winner for this match, I will take Sanity because I could see Eric Young getting a run towards the title. I could Nikki Cross being the one to get either Asuka or Ember Moon after takeover. As far as Wolfe and Kilian, I have been all for them entering the tag team picture.
