3 Bold Predictions For NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool
NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool will take place this Saturday on January 12, 2019, at the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool, Lancashire, England on the WWE Network (starting at 2 PM for those in the Eastern Time Zone).
Pete Dunne will face one of his biggest challenges to date in Joe Coffey for the NXT UK Championship, Rhea Ripley will defend her title for the third time against Toni Storm, Moustache Mountain will face off with Grizzled Young Veterans to become the inaugural NXT UK Tag Team Champions, Eddie Dennis will face off with the undefeated Dave Mastiff in NXT UK's first ever no disqualification match, and two of NXT UK's top superstars in Jordan Devilin and Travis Banks will face off to gain momentum and potentially challenge for the NXT UK Championship in the future.
Here are three bold predictions for the PPV.
#3 WALTER makes his debut
It was announced earlier last year in 2018 in November that WALTER has signed a contract with WWE and will soon be debuting as a part of the NXT UK brand. It is heavily rumoured that WALTER will be making some sort of appearance tomorrow at NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool. There are two different ways that this can happen. The first way would be that he can debut in the crowd. Several NXT wrestlers including Bobby Roode, Candice LeRae, the War Raiders, Ricochet, EC3, Keith Lee, and Matt Riddle have all appeared in the crowd before making their NXT debut and WALTER can be the next person to do so.
The second way would involve WALTER doing something more impactful. The match between Jordan Devlin and Travis Banks has the least stakes so it is definitely possible that WALTER interferes in the match or after the match he can confront or potentially attack the winner or loser of the match. If WALTER were to be a face, he could face off with Jordan Devlin. If WALTER would be a heel, he could face off with Travis Banks in another excellent match.
