Tonight at 10 o'clock (Eastern Time) NXT will have their next TakeOver special with NXT TakeOver: Dallas. The show has a really stacked card with only one match that doesn’t really fit with the rest of the marquee matches.
Here are my NXT TakeOver: Dallas predictions.
Apollo Crews vs. "The Drifter" Elias Samson
Wow, when you look at this card it’s shocking that this match will even happen. I like Apollo Crews but they have done nothing with him since losing to Baron Corbin at NXT TakeOver: London. When it comes to Elias Samson I wish he would just drift away. The guy is boring and an enhancement talent with a gimmick.
No one cares about him and why should they. I have Crews winning but it doesn’t really de much since Samson is awful.

Shinsuke (Shin-Skee) Nakamura vs. Sami Zayn
People need to realize it’s pronounced Shin-Skee not Shin-Zu-Key when it comes to Nakamuras first name. Just kidding I couldn't care less how you pronounce his name so settle down, marks. When it comes to this match there has been no build but these two should have an amazing match.
Zayn has come up to the main roster and with the debut of Nakamura will end with a victory for the man from the Land of the Rising Sun. Nakamura should be great in NXT and will eventually be called up to the main roster.

"The Greatest Man to Ever Live" Austin Aries vs. Baron Corbin
Another amazing match with little to no build will be Austin Aries vs. Baron Corbin. Besides Corbin attacking him on his NXT debut these two haven’t crossed paths. I am on the fence when it comes to who will win because if Balor wins he would have to face Corbin but if Joe wins then Aries would likely win to eventually contend for the title. I will pick Aries but wouldn’t surprise me if Corbin won.

American Alpha (Chad Gable & Jason Jordan) vs. © The Revival (Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder) for the NXT Tag Team Championship
The hottest act in NXT finally gets their chances at the NXT Tag Team Championships and this match will be great. Gable & Jordan have run rampant through the NXT Tag Team Division and the only team left is Dash & Dawson.
I give credit to Dash & Dawson for becoming a good tag team and bringing back the old school, pick a body part mentality into wresting again. Two totally different styles will collide and I have NEWWWW NXT Tag Team Champions with American Alpha defeating The Revival.

Asuka vs. © Bayley for the NXT Women’s Championship
This match is tough for me. I feel like Asuka is the one to beat Bayley but I’m not sure if she will win at Dallas. Bayley has beaten everyone but I don’t think she will get the call up immediately. Becky, Charlotte and Sasha have finally gotten over so chucking Bayley into the mix right now seems cluttered.
I think Nia Jax and Eva Marie could interfere leading to Bayley retaining. I could see a Fatal 4 way at the next special and then calling Bayley up. If she loses then just call her up because there is nothing else left for her down in NXT.

Finn Balor © vs. Samoa Joe for the NXT Championship
I thought Bayley vs. Asuka was tough this match is even tougher. Back at NXT TakeOver: London I picked Samoa Joe to win. He came up short but will contend for the gold again. The issue is reports have said that since Balor is the face of NXT they may keep him down longer to build the brand.
He could still be on the main roster and wrestle on NXT. However I think Samoa Joe wins and at WrestleMania 32 we see the debut of the Balor Club.

That is my “Two Cents” and I hope you enjoy NXT TakeOver: Dallas.
