6 Predictions For NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III

Gold, glory, and undefeated streaks: the stakes are high this Saturday.

NXT TakeOver Brooklyn III

NXT TakeOver heads to Brooklyn, New York for the third consecutive year this Saturday night (August 19th), and after stealing the main roster's thunder during 2016's SummerSlam weekend, WWE's developmental brand will be out to do the same again.

The card isn't as stacked as last year's, but it's still a well-built affair across the board. Aleister Black vs. Hideo Itami and Johnny Gargano vs. Andrade 'Cien' Almas will prop the show up, before three big title matches bring it home, starting with Sanity challenging NXT Tag Team Champions The Authors Of Pain, who haven't taken a clean loss since debuting last June.

Elsewhere, Asuka will put her own undefeated streak (and the NXT Women's Championship) on the line against Ember Moon, who at last has a shot at redemption after her TakeOver: Orlando failure. Finally, we have NXT Champion Bobby Roode vs. Drew McIntyre, with speculation suggesting that whoever loses could be heading to the main roster, adding a whole new layer of intrigue to the contest.

A very solid lineup, but who'll emerge victorious, and who find themselves sliding down the ladder? Let's take a stab at it...


A caffeine-dependent life-form from the frozen wastes of north east Scotland. He once tried to start a revolution but didn't print enough pamphlets, so hardly anyone turned up. Give him a follow @andyhmurray. You'll have a great time. Maybe.
