Who will walk out of the Barclays Center as the new NXT Champion?



What a way to start WrestleMania weekend! Five championships will be defended at NXT TakeOver: New York and one thing is for certain. We will crown a new NXT Champion.


NXT Championship: Johnny Gargano vs Adam Cole

NXT Takeover: New York: NXT Championship - Johnny Gargano vs Adam Cole

We are on the brink of history as Johnny Gargano will face-off against Adam Cole in a 2-out-of-3 falls match for the currently vacated NXT Championship.

Gargano was set to square off against Tommaso Ciampa in the latest instalment of their historic rivalry. But a neck injury forced the Blackheart to relinquish the title.

The WWE COO, Triple H, decided that the new champion will be decided in a bout between Gargano and the winner of a Fatal-five way match between Adam Cole, Aleister Black, Ricochet, Velveteen Dream and Matt Riddle, in which the Undisputed Era leader emerged victorious.

The Game also added the stipulation to ensure that we will have a new champion.

Will it be a fairytale ending for Johnny Wrestling or will Adam Cole add the NXT title to his accomplishments and become the first Triple Crown Champion in NXT?


NXT Women's Championship: Shayna Baszler (c) vs Io Shirai vs Bianca BelAir vs Kairi Sane

The NXT Women's Division is on a roll at the moment. Shayna Baszler has dominated the division and now will face her biggest test in the form of Io Shirai, Bianca BelAir and Kairi Sane. All three women have pushed the Queen Of Spades to her limit forcing the NXT Women's Champion to use underhand tactics to save her crown.

In what promises to be an absolute heated battle, can the Submission Magician reign supreme or will have a new queen on top of the NXT Women's champion?


WWE United Kingdom Championship: Pete Dunne (c) vs WALTER

Pete Dunne has been on a warpath since being crowned as the NXT UK Champion. But the Bruiserweight might have finally met his match in the form of WALTER and his reign as champion is in serious jeopardy.

The Austrian Anomaly has been destructive since making his debut and came face to face with NXT UK champion at the NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool event.

With Pete Dunne demanding a match with WALTER at NXT TakeOver: New York, will it prove to be a mistake or will the Bruiserweight continue his dominance?


NXT Tag Team Championships: The War Raiders (c) vs Aleister Black and Ricochet

The War Raiders will now lock horns with the hottest tag-team in WWE at the moment in the form of Aleister Black & Ricochet. The duo has made their presence felt in the main roster and are even part of the fatal-four-way match for the SmackDown Live Tag-Team titles at WrestleMania 35.

Hanson & Rowe have dominated the NXT tag-team division since their debut and will not be ready to give away their titles that easy.

We could be in for a classic between these two teams and at the moment it will be very hard to predict who would win the match.


North American Championship: Velveteen Dream (c) vs Matt Riddle

When Velveteen Dream won the NXT North American championship, one man wanted to have a closer look at the Gold. It was none other than the Original Bro, Matt Riddle.

And Riddle got his wish granted as he will now face The Dream in what could be a very interesting bout. Both men have contrasting styles when it comes to wrestling and could even steal the show at the Barclays Center.

Will the King Of Bro's reign supreme and add the title to his undefeated record in one-on-one competition or will the Dream paint New York purple?
