2020 NXT TakeOver: Portland Match Card and Predictions
The following are the matches that are announced for the card so far. This will be updated with any match addition in the coming weeks.
NXT Championship Match: Adam Cole (c) vs Tommaso Ciampa
Adam Cole has held the NXT Championship for quite a while, but now Tommaso Ciampa has come back for Goldy, and that means that Cole's title run might be in dire straits.
NXT TakeOver Predictions: Tommaso Ciampa
NXT Women's Championship Match: Rhea Ripley (c) vs Bianca Belair
On the 15th January episode of WWE NXT, Bianca Belair won the Women's Battle Royal to get an NXT Women's Championship match. With Rhea Ripley the target of Charlotte Flair as well at the moment, Belair certainly has her work cut out for her at the moment.
It's unlikely that Rhea Ripley will lose the title, as she seems to be in a feud with Charlotte.
NXT TakeOver Predictions: Rhea Ripley
NXT Tag Team Championship Match: The Undisputed Era (Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly) (c) vs The Broserweights (Pete Dunne and Matt Riddle)
The Undisputed Era are in trouble at the moment. Matt Riddle and Pete Dunne have teamed up to great success so far, and have even won the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic to get where they are right now — in with a title shot at NXT TakeOver: Portland.
Having defeated the Grizzled Young Veterans in the final, they might be enough to finally take the titles away from Undisputed Era.
NXT TakeOver Predictions: Broserweights
NXT North American Championship Match: Keith Lee (c) vs Dominik Dijakovic
Keith Lee might be the most over man in NXT at the moment. Lee has become popular over the last few months, and having just won the North American title it seems unlikely he is losing it soon.
Dominik Dijakovic might be familiar with Lee, but that might prove to not be enough.
NXT TakeOver Predictions: Keith Lee
Finn Balor vs Johnny Gargano
Finn Balor returned to face Johnny Gargano and immediately put the wrestler out of commission in a shocking heel turn. Now that Gargano is back, he has only one thing on his mind — revenge.
However, none of that may prove to be enough when the two face each other in singles action. Then again, one should never count out Johnny Wrestling.
NXT TakeOver Predictions: Finn Balor
Street Fight: Tegan Nox vs Dakota Kai
Tegan Nox has a lot of reasons to be angry. Her long time partner not only turned her back on her but then also attacked her quite viciously at TakeOver: WarGames.
This is not a match, but is a fight between two former friends.
NXT TakeOver Predictions: Tegan Nox
