WWE NXT TakeOver 36 Spoilers and Predictions

NXT Championship Match: Karrion Kross (c) vs. Samoa Joe

I'm SO glad Joe was cleared to return to action. That's a massive positive going on. Kross has joined the Raw roster, so he has to relinquish this championship in some fashion. Now that he's lost to Jeff Hardy, there's no need to protect Kross as much. I expect Joe takes the belt so Kross can go up to Raw permanently.

PREDICTION: Samoa Joe wins the title.

NXT Women's Championship Match: Raquel Gonzalez (c) vs. Dakota Kai

We all knew that Dakota Kai was going to turn on Raquel Gonzalez at some point. It was just a matter of when, not if. This is the natural order of things. As such, the natural order of what happens after that is that Gonzalez will most likely win and send Kai packing. At this point, she's reached a level where she should just come up to the main roster instead of staying in NXT. However, WWE's made crazier decisions before and it's not entirely impossible Kai wins the title and it's Gonzalez who comes up to Raw or SmackDown, instead.

Still, I'm going with the safer option of the champion retaining. I think Franky Monet is the next in line, not Kai.

PREDICTION: Raquel Gonzalez retains the title.

NXT UK Championship Match: WALTER (c) vs. Ilja Dragunov

These two are going to beat the tar out of each other, and I'm totally down for it. The end result is a bit up in the air. Going back to Dragunov gives me the impression they want to give him the belt more so than to just keep it on WALTER, who has held it for so much significantly longer than they're used to for champions. However, it's been on WALTER this long that they might keep it on him even longer and have never had any plans to get rid of him as champion. For that matter, Davey Boy Smith Jr may be the next in line instead of Dragunov.

I'm split 50/50. However, if I absolutely had to pick, I'd go with the title changing hands since they're doing it at this show instead of just on NXT UK television. That must give Dragunov an edge.

PREDICTION: Ilja Dragunov wins the title.

+ more TBA

PREDICTED MATCHES (as of 7/21/2021)

  • Adam Cole vs. Kyle O'Reilly in a rubber match.
  • Kushida against Roderick Strong for the Cruiserweight Championship
  • Isaiah "Swerve" Scott against Santos Escobar for the North American Championship
  • MSK against Imperium for the NXT Tag Team Championship 
  • Nothing for the NXT Women's Tag Team Championship makes sense to me right now.

This page will be altered on a regular basis to reflect changes to the show including any new matches added to the lineup, adjustments to the card, revised predictions and any other information about this event. Stay tuned for the latest updates!
