NXT Takeover: New York predictions.

NXT Takeover: New York.

Oh! I love NXT Takeover events.

Lets get right into it.



WWE UK Championship: Pete Dunne vs. WALTER   

685+ days. That is insane, the greatest kind of insane. I’ve always loved Pete Dunne from the moment he came on the scene in NXT but damn if anyone is going to truly push him over the edge, I think it’s gonna be this WALTER guy. I don’t know much about WALTER, other than you apparently put his name in all caps, and what I’ve seen from video packages, and that is enough to scare me, honestly. Dunne has been champion for a really long time, so it’s got to be someone rather incredible to end that, and WALTER could be that guy. That being said I will wholeheartedly be rooting for Pete Dunne to continue that reign long into the 700s and beyond. Winner: Pete Dunne.

NXT Tag Team Championship: War Raiders  vs. Aleister Black & Ricochet  

It’s no secret that Aleister Black and Ricochet are two of my favorite wrestlers probably ever, especially right now, and so you’d think I’d want them to win this. Well no. As much as I admire Black and Ricochet, they’re time on NXT rightfully so has come to an end, and the main roster is where they belong, and I’m only slightly unworried about that because it seems to be going well so far. The War Raiders are incredible, every time I watch them, they shock me, and I love that. Winners: War Raiders.

NXT North American Championship: Velveteen Dream  vs. Matt Riddle  

While I’ll happily admit that Matt Riddle is super talented, I just don’t get all the hype.. at least not yet. I’m not sure what it is. I literally cannot stand when someone walks around saying Bro Bro Bro all the time, so that could definitely be it. Who do I absolutely adore?  Velveteen Dream. He doesn’t need a championship because he is just a show on his own, but it certainly adds to him, and I don’t think it’s time to give that up just yet. Winner: Velveteen Dream

NXT Women’s Championship: Shayna Baszler vs. Kairi Sane vs. Io Shirai vs. Bianca Belair  

I almost wrote. “Bianca Belair, that’ll be all.” And just stopped right there. Because that is quite simply how much I’m behind her. And I dislike Shayna so much I’ll be satisfied with any outcome that doesn’t involve her leaving the PPV with the championship again. But I genuinely think that Sane and Shirai are destined to hold those tag team championship belts in the future, this one, this night belongs to Bianca.  Winner: Bianca Belair.

NXT Championship: Johnny Gargano vs. Adam Cole

I can barely contain my excitement for this match. As sad as I am that Ciampa is once again injured, and we’re not getting another incredible installment of Gargano vs. Ciampa, I’m so thrilled we’re getting Gargano vs. Cole, in a 2 out of 3 falls match no less. I am not the biggest Adam Cole fan, I didn’t watch him on the indys or anything, but that guy can GO. I’m quite torn on who I would appreciate seeing take home the vacant championship though. On the one hand, Gargano has never won it, on another, it might be time for Gargano to go to the main roster and let Cole and the undisputed area truly take over NXT for a little while. This is one of those matches where I don’t know who I’m rooting for until I get lost in the match and catch myself rooting harder for one than the other. Something tells me that I’ll be rooting for Gargano because damn does he deserve it. Winner: Gargano, probably.

I launched Miss Raee in 2016 purely for a twenty-something girl who is trying to figure it all out, who loves to write and finally decided to share it. I’ve had a hell of a time figuring out what I wanted this blog to be, and I’ve eventually narrowed it down to that I want this blog to be ME, every weird, quirky, loveable aspect of me and even more importantly anyone who also sees themselves as that weird, quirky, loveable person who might love plant-based cooking, multiple fandoms including Star Wars, Supernatural, Greys Anatomy, DC TV, Marvel, The Magicians and SO much more. I found myself being an advocate for mental health, for animals, for the environment, and for equality. I’m a big believer in the vibes you bring, the power of music, and how important the storytelling of books and movies and TV can be. If I’m not on the blog, you can find me sharing selfies and nonsense on Instagram @/amandaraeex3 and live-tweeting and putting in my two cents on twitter at @/amandaraee_x3, so I hope you’ll tag along with me on here and my social media and enjoy all the weird, quirky things we all love.
