With WrestleMania 36 next weekend, on Wednesday and Thursday, NXT presents NXT Takeover Stand & Deliver, a special two-night event. At Takeover Stand & Deliver, every NXT Championship will be on the line, along with a personal feud being settled in an Unsanctioned Match. With that in mind, who will come out on top at NXT Takeover Stand & Deliver?
Pete Dunne vs. Kushida
This match was just made on the latest episode of NXT, although this should be an entraining match between two phenomenal wrestlers. Both Kushida and Pere Dunne have a lot to prove, and a win here for either person would move them up the ranks in NXT. Even though Kushida has been impressive, Pete Dunne is coming off a loss to Finn Balor and he is looking to redeem himself and a win would do just that.
Prediction: Pete Dunne
MSK (Wes Lee and Nash Carter) vs. Grizzled Young Veterans (James Drake and Zack Gibson) vs. Legado Del Fantasma (Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde) For The NXT Tag Team Championship
With Danny Burch suffering a shoulder injury just a few weeks ago on an episode of NXT, William Regal decided to strip Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch the NXT Tag Team Championship. With the tag titles vacated, 3 of the best tag teams in the NXT Tag Team division fight to become the new NXT Tag Team Champions. With all teams being extremely talented, Grizzled Young Veterans are due for an NXT Tag Team Championship run and this is the perfect time to do it. Even though Grizzled Young Veterans are due for a reign as Tag Team Champions, it would not surprise me if WWE goes with the hot new tag team in MSK as Tag Team Champions.
Prediction: Grizzled Young Veterans
Leon Ruff vs. Isaiah Scott vs. Bronson Reed vs. Cameron Grimes vs. Dexter Lumis vs. LA Knight Gauntlet Match Winner Gets NXT North American Championship Match
With Johnny Gargano looking for a number 1 contender to the North American Championship, NXT is having a Gauntlet Match to determine Gargano’s next challenger. Out of everyone in this match, WWE needs to capitalize on the momentum of Cameron Grimes. Since returning to NXT, Grimes has been one of the most entraining things about NXT.
Prediction: Cameron Grimes
Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart (c) vs. The Way (Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell) for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship
Since the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic started, Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart have shown that they are a force to be reckoned with in the tag team division. Just a few weeks ago, they defeated Dokoda Kai and Raquel González to become NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions. Moon and Blackheart will have their toughest challenge at NXT Stand & Deliver since becoming Tag Team Champions in Indi Hartwell and Candice LeRae. Even though Hartwell and LeRae are an actual tag team, Moon and Blackheart have too much momentum to drop the titles.
Prediction: Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart
Walter (c) vs. Tommaso Ciampa For The NXT United Kingdom Championship
Since winning the NXT United Kingdom Championship from Pete Dunne at NXT Takeover New York, Walter has spent the past 2 years dominating everyone in his path and remaining champion in the process. Even though Walter has been a dominant champion, he is about to face a tough challenge in Tommaso Ciampa. With Walter willing to defend the title in the United States and the United Kingdom and Ciampa not wanting to deal with traveling, Walter should be able to win here.
Jordan Devlin (c) vs. Santos Escobar (c) (with Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde) Ladder match For Undisputed NXT Cruiserweight Champion
Since April 2020, Jordan Devlin has been stuck in the United Kingdom while being the NXT Cruiserweight Champion. While Devlin has been stuck in another country due to COVID, Santos Escobar has been carrying the Cruiserweight Divison in the United States as the Interim NXT Cruiserweight Champion. Just a few weeks ago, Devlin returned to the United States and confronted Escobar. Even though Escobar has been on a tear, Devlin will be his toughest challenge and he will be just too much for Escobar to handle.
Prediction: Jordan Devlin
Johnny Gargano (c) vs. Winner of Gauntlet Match For The NXT North American Championship
Since winning the NXT North American Championship for the third time at NXT Takeover WarGames, Johnny Gargano has been impressive in his third reign as champion defeating guys like Kushida and Lion Ruff to retain his championship. Even though Gargano only has to compete in one match, the type of opponent from LA Knight, Dexter Lumas, Cameron Grimes, that he can face just to name a few will be too much for Gargano to handle.
Prediction: Winner of Gauntlet Match
Adam Cole vs. Kyle O’Reilly Unsanctioned Match
Since Adam Cole turned on Kyle O’Reilly at the end of NXT Takeover Vengeance Day, it has become an extremely personal feud between Cole and O’Reilly with both of them attacking each other the past several weeks which included both of them getting arrested. With the both of them wanting to tear each other apart, this match has Kyle O’Reilly getting his revenge written all over it.
Prediction: Kyle O’Reilly
Io Shirai (c) vs. Raquel González (with Dakota Kai) For The NXT Women’s Championship
After losing the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship to Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart less than an hour after getting the titles, Raquel González went after the NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai. Even though Shirai has been amazing as champion, WWE needs to pull the trigger on Raquel González and give her a run with the NXT Women’s Championship.
Prediction: Raquel González
Finn Bálor (c) vs. Karrion Kross (with Scarlett) For The NXT Championship
Since having to relinquish the NXT Championship just days after defeating Keith Lee at NXT TakeOver XXX due to suffering a separated shoulder during the match, Karrion Kross has been focused on getting his championship back that he never lost. At NXT Takeover Stand & Deliver, he will have a tough task in front of him in Finn Balor who has been outstanding at NXT Champion since winning the title several months ago. Even though Balor has proven he can take on all challengers, Kross will just be too much for him.
Prediction: Karrion Kross
