NXT TakeOver: New York predictions
In a week from today, the black and yellow brand will hold its latest TakeOver special, and it might just be the biggest and best one yet. Triple H wants it to be seen that way, at least. It's got the card to live up to the hype, promising thrilling action and many potentially historic moments.

Either way, the event is certainly going to be better than WrestleMania 35 next Sunday, but then again, that's always a given. TakeOver has exceeded the bloated WrestleMania card every year since the two events have been held on the same weekend.
It's a stacked card, but who is going to walk out of the Barclays Center with gold on their shoulders next Friday night?
#1 NXT Tag Team Championship: War Raiders (c) vs. Aleister Black and Ricochet
We haven't seen much of the War Raiders since they won their tag team titles at TakeOver: Phoenix, but that's partially due to the annual Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic which has taken place over the last month. The new tag team of Aleister Black and Ricochet won the tournament and punched their tickets to TakeOver: New York for a title shot.
Despite its being essentially an alliance of singles stars, Black and Ricochet have gelled surprisingly quickly as a tag team, and we can expect an explosive match to open the show next Friday night.
The War Raiders, however, were never likely to lose their titles this early. What makes their victory certain is that Black and Ricochet have both made their main roster debuts, appearing there since February. This is almost certainly going to be their last act in NXT. That's going to make this match more exciting, but also more predictable.
Winners: And still NXT Tag Team Champions, the War Raiders.
