MOC Predictions – NXT TakeOver: Chicago – May 20, 2017

Hey guys, so as some of you may know, MOC is no longer reporting news and recaps. It was a decision I wanted to implement as I want to bring a more customized site to you all featuring exclusive content and opinions. But it doesn’t mean I can’t give you my glorious predictions which NEVER come true. So being as this weekend is TakeOver and Backlash, here are my predictions for Saturday’s broadcast of NXT TakeOver: Chicago which will be aired on the WWE Network.

(images below sourced from WWE.com)

Roderick Strong vs. Eric Young
Singles Match

There been some growing tension in the last few weeks between these two men. WWE has run a few highlight videos on Strong trying to build his character up and reveal that he’s become a new father, and the videos have been doing a decent job.

So when it comes to this match, I feel Roderick has the most momentum behind him as WWE tries to sell him as being “the guy” at this time. So in my opinion I feel that he does win, but via DQ. When Eric Young is involved in a match, you also have to know SAnitY will also be involved somehow. So I feel the way WWE can draw out this feud is having Strong win following an interference from SAnitY.

MOC Prediction: Roderick Strong via DQ.


Tyler Bate (c) vs. Pete Dunne
-WWE United Kingdom Championship-
Singles Match

We get a surprise UK title match at an NXT event. Frankly I can’t complain as these talents are great. Tyler Bate has been a fighting champion and represents a division in WWE that is gaining ground. This Saturday that UK title [which looks beautiful by the way] get defended against a fighting challenger who will go to any cost to become the new champion. Pete Dunne is a fighter, and has truly showed his capabilities in that ring in every match he’s been apart of. Whether fighting along side UK talents, or showcasing his dominate talents in singles competition I feel Dunne’s time is here, and this Saturday he becomes the new UK champion. Especially as WWE begins to tape the UK Championship specials. The time for UK fighting has begun.

MOC Prediction: Pete Dunne (New United Kingdom Champion)


Authors of Pain (c) vs. Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano
-NXT Tag Team Championship-
Ladder Match

So this match is up in the air at this time as Tommaso Ciampa sustained an injury at an NXT Live event in Highland Heights, KY. Ciampa jumped off the apron for a knee attack, but when he landed he may have sprained his knee or ankle. The match was stopped right away when the ref threw up the “X” indicating a true injury. Here’s a slow motion of the spot thanks to a fan in attendance:

WWE hasn’t provided any updates on the situation, or even if the match has been cancelled but nonetheless even if it were to happen, I feel WWE would keep the tag titles on Authors of Pain, and eventually split Gargano and Ciampa as both men are amazing singles competitors. Not to mention there was a singer who revealed online that she was taping a theme for Gargano, which only lead to speculation of a potential split sometime soon. So in my opinion, no matter the circumstances or who faces who, I believe Authors of Pain retain those titles.

MOC Prediction: Authors Of Pain (retain)

UPDATE: In an update, Triple H revealed in a conference call that Ciampa twisted his ankle and is being evaluated today. But early reports indicate that Ciampa is good to go for TakeOver.


Asuka (c) vs. Ruby Riot vs. Nikki Cross
-NXT Women’s Championship-
Triple Threat Match

Let’s face it, when you compete against Asuka one-on-one, you’ll eventually be tapping out. So let’s add more women to a match, and the potential to have Asuka lose without even being pinned or submitted. With WWE running the Women’s Tournament sometime in the fall, there’s been several new talents which WWE are looking to bring in. Many presume that Asuka who has been so dominant in NXT may be one to be called up to the main roster sooner rather then later. This match, has the potential to have Asuka lose her title, but without her being the one who lose it.

With Asuka not being the reason to losing her title, it could just drive her insane trying to regain her title as it would mean that her streak as the longest NXT women’s champion comes to a stop. In all honesty I do feel that Asuka may lose her title this Saturday, and if I had to pick one winner, I would assume Nikki Cross becomes the new champion. The main reason is because NXT may start pushing the SAnitY stable soon, and this could lead to potential titles in the long run.

MOC Prediction: Nikki Cross (New NXT Women’s Champion) pins Ruby Riot.


Bobby Roode (c) vs. Hideo Itami
-NXT Championship-
Singles match

All I can say is, if Hideo hits the GTS, the Chicago crowd will either support him, or boo the ‘F’ out of him. As we all know the Chicago audience are crazy for their hometown boy CM Punk, so I will be expecting a ton of Punk chants, but really hope they don’t over saturate the show with them.

In regards to this match, I feel NXT hasn’t really built this match as a main event worthy draw. Bobby Roode has been fabulous in the ring, and Itami’s not bad either, but his lack of charisma is what kills my draw to see this match. He’s not a bad competitor in any way shape or form, I just feel that the build for this match has been a bit lack-luster. But nonetheless I feel both men will deliver and give a decent show. As far as winners go, Bobby Roode comes out on top in my opinion. He holds that title with pride and frankly it looks good on him and I feel that WWE will keep that title on him for a while. Due to that, I feel Roode will retain.

MOC Prediction: Bobby Roode (retains)



Those are my predictions for Saturday’s show. Please feel free to share yours below and let’s see what you guys think may happen. Always love to hear from others.

Please note, due to the new format for MindofCarnage.com, we will not be covering the show live, but I will be live tweeting and maybe run a Facebook chat during the show and would love to chat with you guys there. Feel free to follow me on Twitter and Facebook.

Based on reports, NXT talent Aleister Black will be scheduled to be on WWE TV this week. It’s very possible that Black could very well be utilized on Raw. Nothing has been verified as of yet, and Aleister has been used on WWE’s main event in recent weeks. He also has had some dark matches and was used during the European tour involved in a triple threat with Neville and Aries.

We’ll see what plans WWE has for him, if any.
