NXT Preview 05.06
Tonight, on the USA Network, NXT is having an NXT Takeover like episode. Two championship matches are scheduled with Adam Cole defending the NXT title versus Velveteen Dream and Charlotte Flair squares off with Io Shirai for the Women's NXT Championship. Also, Domink Dijakovic takes on Johnny Gargano, Karrion Kross, Finn Balor and more are scheduled in the show.
Adam Cole's last singles match was against Dio Maddin in which resulted in a DQ in favor of Maddin. His last victory was on February 21st when defeating Tommaso Ciampa in Milwaukee. Velveteen Dream has been on a hot streak since his return. He has defeated each of the Undisputed Era except Cole. Cole is protected by his crew; therefore, Cole wins tonight.
Charlotte Flair challenges the number one contender Io Shirai. Flair defeated Kayden Carter, Liv Morgan, and Mia Yimsince becoming NXT Champion at WrestleMania. As per her saying, she is the most watched Superstar because Charlotte is performing double duty on RAW and NXT. I do not know if she is the most watched superstar, but Io Shirai is a competitor. Shirai won the ladder match to become the number one contender over Candice LeRae, Chelsea Green, Dakota Kai, Mia Yim, and Tegon Nox. There is no indication that Shirai will outlast the Queen. As a result, I choose Charlotte to win.
Karrion Kross will make his in-ring debut with Scarlett. Kross is coming over from Major League Wrestling (MLW) and AAW. He attacked Tommaso Ciampa and who knows if he is responsible for attacking Finn Balor. Whoever is his opponent tonight, I feel sorry for that performer.
Whereas for Finn Balor, I would not be surprised if he goes face-to-face with Kross. If it is not Kross, who else can do such a coward act and attack Balor? In my opinion, it is not Kross's motive to attack without being seen. We saw him attack Ciampa so why be so secretive on Balor? If not Kross, who can it be? I will stick with Kross for now.
Dominik Dijakovic takes on Johnny Gargano. IS Dijakovic healthy enough to take on Gargano? In his last match, he was struck hard at his leg from Damien Priest during a triple threat match. Keith Lee was the match but Priest put Dijakovic out of commission for a short while. For Gargano, he is the best NXT superstar as of now. I choose Gargano to win, rather it is fair or not.
