Here are our five predictions for the show…

#5 Matt Riddle vs. Kassius Ohno

Matt Riddle defeated Kassius Ohno in just six seconds during their impromptu match at the start of NXT TakeOver: WarGames II in November 2018, so it’s safe to assume that their next TakeOver encounter will be a little more competitive.

As for the outcome, how can we look past Riddle?

“The King of Bros” is starting to establish himself as one of the top in-ring competitors in NXT, so he needs the victory a lot more, while Ohno’s on-screen role in NXT is basically to lose high-profile matches (sorry, Kassius).

Prediction: Matt Riddle
