NXT Takeover Brooklyn II Predictions

Tonight is the night!  NXT returns to the Barclay's Center and while it's not as stacked of a card as last years, this may turns out to be the best NXT show of the year.  Without further ado, here are my predictions for the show.

Ember Moon vs Billie Kay - This is the debut match for Ember Moon and I don't foresee her losing this bout.  Billie Kay has recently changed her gimmick on NXT and I would expect her to have a push towards the NXT title within the next year, but doubtful she takes the win after the company has promoted Moon's debut.

Shinsuke Nakamura
No Way Jose vs Austin Aries - Based on what I've seen from NXT the past couple of months, Aries will more than likely get the win here and continue his strong work as a heel.  I would expect to see more of an aggressive style from Jose in this match, but Aries needs to a statement win on the biggest show of the year.

"The Revival" (C) vs Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa - "The Revivial" has been the staple of the tag team division on NXT and has had no strong challengers since American Alpha went to the main roster.  Gargano and Ciampa (strong off their CWC match) are now committed to NXT and as such as I would expect it's time to make the title switch.

Andrade Almas vs Bobby Roode - There is no question in my mind that Bobby Roode will win his debut on Takeover.  Almas has been incredibly impressive in the ring since his debut, but Roode has been phenomenal with his "Glorious" gimmick since his debut and is the future star of the entire brand and possibly the main roster.
Samoa Joe

Asuka (C) vs Bayley - This should be an excellent rematch between the two top female wrestlers on NXT.  (They would rank very high in the entire company as well)  I don't see Bayley reclaiming the title here as most expect her to go to the main roster, but it's also possible that she wins and a rubber match between the two happens in the future.  I would go with Askua in this bout.

Samoa Joe (C) vs Shinsuke Nakamura - This may be the hardest hitting match of the evening and easily the most anticipated.  Joe has been a breath of fresh air as the NXT Champion and completely dominant in that role.  Nakamura is a once in a lifetime performer and has taken NXT by storm.  I would pick Nakamura to take the title from Joe, and Joe being promoted to the main roster.
