Before I get in to it, I have decided to make the return to making WWE/wrestling blogs after stopping last year on my old website, but I feel like this is the perfect time to get back in it. Wrestlemania season starts this weekend and it should be fun writing about all of the things going on in the WWE. Now lets get into my predictions for Takeover Phoenix.
Matt Riddle V. Kassius Ohno
Now this should be a really good match, as long as they don’t make Ohno lose in 10 seconds. Riddle looks like he can be a major star in the WWE and a match against Ohno can really show everyone in the WWE why he could be. Also I’m happy that Ohno is back because he was one of my favorite wrestlers in 2017 and to see him back doing stuff is really cool.
Prediction: Matt Riddle
Johnny Gargano V. Ricochet for the NXT North American Championship
And the show keeps on getting better as now we have Gargano V. Ricochet and this is going to be my match of the night. These two will burn the house down with the match they are going to have, and the best part of this match, Dark DIY. If Gargano wins tonight I expect him to interfere in the main event to let Ciampa win and both of DIY to hold single titles. And I wouldn’t doubt them going after Undisputed ERA or War Raiders to win all titles.
Prediction: Johnny Gargano
The War Raiders V. Undisputed ERA for the NXT Tag Team Champions
Now this should speak for how good this show is, this is probably going to be the worst match of the night, but its still going to be a good match. These two teams already had a really good match with each other in the past and I expect the same outcome to come from it. I expect the O’Riley and Strong hold onto their titles once again and Cole and Fish will interfere to help them win.
Prediction: Undisputed ERA
Bianca Belair V. Shayna Baszler for the NXT Women’s Champion
Now we have a future star in Bianca Belair taking on Baszler and their is no doubt in my mind that Baszler isn’t winning this match. She just won the title back in October at Evolution and there is no reason for her to lose the title now. There will probably be some interference from Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir to lead Baszler to get the win, and now that I am thinking about it, there is a lot of interference that could go on tonight.
Prediction: Shyana Baszler
Aleister Black V. Tommaso Ciampa for the NXT Championship
And now for the main event, Aleister Black finally gets his rematch for the NXT Championship after he lost it back in July and this will be the match Gargano and Ciampa shake hands. Dark DIY will become a thing and it will be awesome, not to mention how good this match will be. Also now is the perfect time to put Aleister Black on the main roster and he should be in the Royal Rumble tomorrow night.
Prediction: Tommaso Ciampa
My reaction blog should be up by tomorrow morning and make sure to read my Royal Rumble blog that will be up before 5:00.
