Well, here I am taking the plunge, something new, something I always tweet about when the big events are on and I thought, it’s Wrestlemania weekend so why not start now. So below is the card followed by my predictions and as the event takes place I will add my thoughts on the match, and add the match of the night at the end. May even add a rating for each match, we will see.
Tye Dillinger, Roderick Strong, No Way Jose & Ruby Riot vs. Eric Young, Killian Dain, Alexander Wolfe & Nikki Cross
Prediction: Team of Tye Roderick Jose and Ruby for the win here. Tye to join the main roster soon and Roderick and Jose to possibly move into the title picture.
Winner: SAnity. Good match, solid but that was about it.
Aleister Black vs. Andrade “Cien” Almas
Prediction: Aleister Black to get his first win, even those Almas’ matches lately have been ace.
Winner: Aleister Black, as expected, but again solid match.
The Authors of Pain (c) vs. Dash & Dawson vs. Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa
Prediction: The Authors of Pain to win. The other two teams will move onto the main roster, I would be surprised if they go straight after Wrestlemania either, both are too over with the fans to keep them any longer in NXT.
Winner: Authors of Pain. What a match, has to be a match of the year contender, the spots were superb, only wish the ending went better but hell it was a fantastic match
Asuka (c) vs. Ember Moon
Prediction: Ember Moon to take the title. Asuka is playing the confident card she will lose and may possibly jump straight into main roster, not a given though as they tend to get a rematch before moving up to the main roster.
Winner: Asuka. She is officially heel and won with shenanigans. Very good match and set up perfectly for Asuka’s eventual loss, and the eclipse was protected.
Bobby Roode (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Prediction: Bobby Roode to retain. Nakamura will go onto the main roster and very soon. I expect it to happen Raw or Smackdown after Wrestlemania, again his too over and too many potential great matches are been withheld because they put him in NXT, probably due to language issues, rather than onto main roster straight away.
Winner: Bobby Roode. A solid main event, nothing major wrong and was just enjoyable to watch. Nakamura, I am sure will be on Raw or Smackdown post-Wrestlemania, hell I cannot rule him out appearing at Wrestlemania.
Match of the night was the Triple Threat Tag match. Superb spots, team up with the Revival and #DIY, which no one expected at first. Hell, this match alone is at least 4 stars possible at least 4.5 stars in my opinion.
