This Friday, WWE will officially kick-off the WrestleMania 35 weekend by presenting NXT Takeover: New York from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. NXT Takeovers have always delivered and this one isn't an exception. In fact, many are saying that this card has the potential to be the best Takeover ever and that is saying something.
The event will see Adam Cole and Johnny Gargano facing off for the vacant NXT Championship in a 2-out-of-3 falls match. Elsewhere on the card, we have Bianca Belair, Io Shirai, Kairi Sane and Shayna Baszler locking horns for the NXT Women's Championship. The King of Bros or rather The Original Bro, Matt Riddle will look to put some gold around his waist as he goes up against The Velveteen Dream for the NXT American Championship.
With such a stacked card, NXT Takeover: New York has 'Show of the Year' written all over it. NXT is renowned for its high-quality matches and brilliant storytelling and we expect to see the same, come April 5th. Here are five things that could happen at NXT Takeover: New York.
#5 Aleister Black and Ricochet winning the NXT Tag Team Championship
The odd-pairing of Ricochet and Aleister Black has been quite a successful one. Not only is the duo making waves on the main roster, but they have also earned a shot at the NXT Tag Team Championships against The War Raiders at NXT Takeover: New York by winning the Dusty Tag Team Classic Tournament.
Black and Ricochet defeated The Forgotten Sons (Wesley Blake and Steve Cuttler) in the finals of the said tournament. The decision to have Ricochet and Black win the Dusty Cup did surprise a lot of fans given that the duo is a regular feature on the main roster.
Black and Ricochet already have a title match scheduled for this week's Monday Night RAW as they are set to face against the Current RAW Tag Team Champions, The Revival. They are the favourites heading into this match and are excepted to walk out of RAW as the new RAW Tag Team Champions.
With many excepting Black and Ricochet to bid adieu to the black and yellow brand, they could end up shocking the world and dethroning the War Raiders. A win for Hanson and Rowe would make Black and Ricochet the first team to hold the RAW and NXT Tag Team Championship simultaneously. Given how much the WWE likes to swerve its fans, we won't be surprised to see the duo winning the tag titles at Takeover.
