The interesting part about this card is that there are three title matches- which could go either way and I'd be happy- and two debuts which seem to be written in stone where, you know, the debuting talent is not going to lose. This makes it rather easy to predict Austin Aries and Shinsuke Nakamura as winners but since I like both sides of all three title matches those winners are much more difficult to predict.
Also, after I wrote all of this and watched the last episode of NXT before TO:D I was informed that Apollo Crews vs. Elias Samson has been added to the card. You know I'm taking Apollo Crews all day because I want to see Elias Samson repackaged. Even being a drifter from Florida would make more sense than Pittsburgh.
Match One: Austin Aries vs. Baron Corbin
Winner: Austin Aries
Match Two: Sami Zayn vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura
Match Three: The Revival* vs. American Alpha [NXT Tag Team Championship]
The hardest part about predicting this match is that neither team needs the titles to go to the main roster, as I fully expect Enzo & Big Cass to be on the main roster after Wrestlemania 32 and they didn't win the tag titles against The Revival recently. So either The Revival could drop them to go up to the main roster and the American Alpha would be the standard set in the NXT tag team division or American Alpha could go up to the main roster simply because they're awesome (and there could be two sets of tag team titles after Wrestlemania) and then The Revival could retain the titles and continue to grow and build. But since we saw The Revival recently on Roadblock- which was kind of like the main roster- I'd expect to see them on the main roster first and I think they might do so by having them drop the tag belts here. American Alpha as tag team champions would simply be awesome, especially with the amount of talent coming into NXT right now, and if Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows really come to NXT before the main roster than a triple threat with American Alpha vs. Anderson & Gallows vs. TMDK would simply be the best thing for the tag team division right now. While it's nothing against American Alpha and it's not that I don't want to see them on the main roster, I just want to see them as champions dominating NXT for a little bit first. The Revival can easily go up to the main roster and even be tag team champions on Smack Down! because of their gimmick being exactly where it needs to be right now.
Winners: American Alpha
Match Four: Bayley* vs. Asuka [NXT Women's Championship]
For me, the difference between this match and when Bayley last defended the title against Nia Jax is that not only was Nia Jax not ready to run with the title but it was the first real title defense by Bayley (Who has since defended it on the weekly shows successfully) and so because of the time Asuka has spent in NXT, the development of her character (she is main roster ready, but perhaps the main roster isn't ready for her yet) and mostly just how long Bayley has held the title I think it could be time for Bayley to lose it. I like Bayley, I mean, who doesn't, but I like Asuka so much more and feel she is the most talented female on the entire WWE roster (and she even has more talent than most of the men) and so she deserves this. Bayley is really one of the last of the older divas in NXT right now too, so pushing her up to the main roster and having Asuka as champion would usher in a new era where Asuka would defend the title against Dana Brooke (if she ever heels), Nia Jax and whoever else is brave enough to come to NXT and face her for it. I realize that my whole theory of Bayley joining the main roster at Wrestlemania (see: my Wrestlemania 32 predictions) does not depend on her losing the title because Sasha Banks came up as champion and if Asuka doesn't win it here she could get another shot or Bayley could simply lose it to someone else, but I just think there isn't a way for Bayley to win this. I wasn't sure how Bayley would be able to defeat Nia Jax but I did feel like it was too soon for Jax to win and Bayley to lose, but this time I don't feel like it's too soon for either Asuka to win or Bayley to lose. Since last time it came down to something like "I feel like Bayley will win, I'm just not sure how" and this time it's "Asuka should win and I have no idea how Bayley will win" I'm going to just go ahead and say that Asuka will win. Simple as that.
Match Five: Finn Balor* vs. Samoa Joe [NXT Championship]
