WWE NXT TakeOver: Portland 2020 Spoilers and Predictions


Johnny Gargano vs. Finn Balor

They weren't able to do this when they originally planned, but that might be for the better. Now, they have a bit more anticipation built up and more time to work on some ideas. This could very well be a Match of the Year candidate.

PREDICTION: I'm 50/50 on this, but for now, I'll say Finn Balor wins.

NXT Women's Championship Match: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Bianca Belair

Technically, Rhea Ripley could lose the title to Toni Storm at Worlds Collide. However, that's not going to happen.

Bianca Belair won a battle royal on the January 15th edition of NXT to earn this title shot and I'm actually a little surprised about that. I thought it would be Io Shirai and they'd save Belair for later, as I thought she might be the one to take the belt from Ripley down the line. Now, I'm starting to think Belair might move up to the main roster after WrestleMania to be on the same touring schedule as Montez Ford.

In any scenario, it's too early for them to take the belt off Ripley, so she has to win this.

PREDICTION: Rhea Ripley retains.

PREDICTED MATCHES (as of 1/15/2020)

NXT Championship Match: Adam Cole (c) vs. Tommaso Ciampa

This was a necessity. No other match makes as much sense. I'm very much looking forward to this, as they have a chance to do just as amazing a job as Cole's matches were with Johnny Gargano.

PREDICTION: Adam Cole wins.

NXT North American Championship Match: Roderick Strong (c) vs. ???

Does Keith Lee beat Strong on NXT and they have a rematch? That could work. Is this a multi-man match that includes people like Damian Priest and Dominik Dijakovic for the sake of cramming in names? No idea.

PREDICTION: It all depends on Lee vs. Strong.

NXT Tag Team Championship Match: The Undisputed ERA (c) vs. ???

Kushida and Alex Shelley might be enough of a priority for them to go with them, particularly if they win the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Or, maybe they want to have Pete Dunne and Matt Riddle fill that role. I guess we'll have to see how the tournament plays out to get a better idea of this landscape.

PREDICTION: The Undisputed ERA wins.

NXT Cruiserweight Championship Match: Angel Garza (c) vs. ???

I don't think this belt will be defended here, to be honest.

PREDICTION: n/a
