Finn Bálor vs. Hideo Itami vs. Tyler Breeze (NXT Championship No. 1 Contender's Triple Threat Match)

WWE NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable predictions

Robbie Brookside: I’ve made no bones about the fact that I think Tyler Breeze  is on a roll. However, Finn Bálor, watching him work out and hit the stomps off the ropes, he can hit that at any time on anyone. I’ve got to go with Finn Bálor. WINNER: Finn Bálor

Sara Del Rey: Triple Threat Matches are such a tough dynamic. Anyone could come out on top. All three have a good claim to the No. 1 Contendership. I’m going with Hideo. He’s got the most experience, a dynamic in-ring style and the heart to pull it out. WINNER: Hideo Itami

Norman Smiley:There’s a lot of history there between those guys. I’ll go with Finn Bálor. He’s very impactful and spectacular and creative in the ring. WINNER: Finn Bálor

Finn Bálor: 2, Hideo Itami: 1, Tyler Breeze: 0


NXT Women's Champion Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch

WWE NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable predictions

Robbie Brookside: Who would ever bet against Sasha Banks? Pound-for-pound, she’s the best and most aggressive Superstar or Diva we have on our roster. However, being an Englishman and an admirer of the FA Cup, which brings surprises and upsets, you realize sometimes that the favorites do get beat. I think, out of all the matches, and knowing this is the biggest opportunity Becky Lynch has ever had, I wouldn’t bet against an upset. WINNER: Becky Lynch

Sara Del Rey: This is so tough. My gut tells me Sasha, because she’s nasty. She’ll win by any means necessary. The NXT Women’s Championship has become the most prestigious title in women’s wrestling, possibly all of WWE. The women who have held it before her, Paige and Charlotte, brought it to another level. I think Sasha’s right on par with them. WINNER: Sasha Banks

Norman Smiley: I’m a huge fan of Sasha Banks. She’s The Boss! I think that she’ll retain the title with fashion and style. WINNER: Sasha Banks

Sasha Banks: 2, Becky Lynch: 1

NXT Champion Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn

WWE NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable predictions

Robbie Brookside: I watched Kevin Owens last week in Orlando make his return to the NXT rings. I really think that he’s come back and hit the ground running.  It’s really hard to see him being stopped.  However, this is no normal match. Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens have a lot of history. I really think Sami can come back, upset the apple cart and regain the NXT Championship. WINNER: Sami Zayn

Sara Del Rey: I’m going with Kevin Owens. It’s not that fighting for yourself is a bad thing, but I think Kevin has a lot at stake with his family and the situation he’s in. When you’re backed into a corner and things like that are on the line, you have responsibilities as a man, father and husband, so you take it to another level. I think Sami’s amazing, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he does pull it out, but I think Kevin’s hungrier. WINNER: Kevin Owens

Norman Smiley: I’m going with Kevin Owens. He’s on a roll right now and will use that momentum to make a statement. He’s been a very intimidating champion thus far and will retain [the NXT Title]. WINNER: Kevin Owens

Kevin Owens: 2, Sami Zayn: 1
