NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable Predictions

Robbie Brookside: I’ve made no bones about the fact that I think Tyler Breeze is on a roll. However, Finn Bálor, watching him work out and hit the stomps off the ropes, he can hit that at any time on anyone. I’ve got to go with Finn Bálor. WINNER: Finn Bálor

Sara Del Rey: Triple Threat Matches are such a tough dynamic. Anyone could come out on top. All three have a good claim to the No. 1 Contendership. I’m going with Hideo. He’s got the most experience, a dynamic in-ring style and the heart to pull it out. WINNER: Hideo Itami

Norman Smiley: There’s a lot of history there between those guys. I’ll go with Finn Bálor. He’s very impactful and spectacular and creative in the ring. WINNER: Finn Bálor

Finn Bálor: 2, Hideo Itami: 1, Tyler Breeze: 0

Tyler Breeze & Adam Rose def. Hideo Itami & Finn Bálor

With their NXT Championship No. 1 Contender’s Triple Threat Match looming, Finn Bálor and Hideo Itami joined forces once again to take on the third man in the TakeOver bout, Tyler Breeze, and Adam Rose. Itami & Bálor seemed to be the more cohesive unit as the match wore on, though Breeze & Rose weren’t afraid to use underhanded tactics to take control.

Things looked to go well for Itami as he seemed to have Breeze on the ropes, until Bálor tagged himself into the bout. The enigmatic Superstar soon had Prince Pretty in position for the Coup de Grace, until Itami repaid the favor and tagged himself back in. That set off an argument between the two friends, allowing Breeze to sneak up on Itami and roll him up for the victory.

After the bout, Prince Pretty clocked Itami with a Supermodel Kick and Bálor with a Beauty Shot. Rose tried to celebrate with his partner, only to get tagged with a Supermodel Kick himself. Breeze stood tall and snapped a selfie amid the carnage he created, perhaps setting the stage for his greatest victory yet at TakeOver next week.

Hideo Itami def. Tyler Breeze

Looking to scout the competition ahead of the No. 1 Contender’s Triple Threat Match at TakeOver: Unstoppable, Finn Bálor pulled up a chair at ringside to get a close-up view as Hideo Itami and Tyler Breeze rekindled their rivalry.

Though both competitors traded control, the match turned into a game of cat-and-mouse. Breeze eventually scrambled to ringside to avoid Itami’s lightning-fast strikes. Itami tried to clock Breeze with a big boot on the arena floor, but Prince Pretty moved, leaving Itami’s foot to connect with Bálor‘s jaw. Breeze missed with the Beauty Shot back in the ring, but Itami ducked and connected with the Shotgun Kick for the victory.

Breeze attacked Itami from behind after the bout until Bálor threw him off. The enigmatic Superstar went to check on his friend, until Prince Pretty tagged him with a Supermodel Kick and clobbered Itami with the Beauty Shot, giving his opponents a painful preview of Takeover.

NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable Preview: Finn Bálor vs. Hideo Itami vs. Tyler Breeze (NXT Championship No. 1 Contender’s Triple Threat Match)

Three of NXT’s brightest Superstars will battle for the opportunity to challenge for the NXT Championship at TakeOver: Unstoppable, as Finn Bálor, Hideo Itami and Tyler Breeze will meet in a No. 1 Contender’s Triple Threat Match. Each Superstar is more than worthy of a title match, but they’ll have to prove it inside the ring during the live broadcast on WWE Network.

Bálor emerged victorious from an eight-Superstar tournament earlier this year to win the No. 1 Contendership, defeating Curtis Axel and Itami en route to a showdown with Neville in the finals at TakeOver: Rival. Donning his demonic war paint, Bálor defeated the high-flyer with the Coup de Grace to earn a title match. The Irish Superstar came up short against NXT Champion Kevin Owens, but is eager for another crack at the title.

At last May’s TakeOver, Breeze defeated Sami Zayn to become the No. 1 Contender to the NXT Championship. Prince Pretty’s only one-on-one title match came in August 2014, when he challenged Adrian Neville, only for Sami Zayn and Tyson Kidd to interfere, setting the stage for the Fatal 4-Way scramble that WWE.com placed among the best of the year. Since then, Breeze has been immersed in a rivalry with Itami, defeating the Japanese sensation in a grueling 2-Out-of-3 Falls Match. He recently set his sights on Bálor, making this Triple Threat Match a bit undesirable for Prince Pretty.

Itami may be the wild card in the equation. Since arriving in NXT, he has made his presence felt in high-profile bouts against The Ascension and Breeze, in addition to appearing on The Grandest Stage of Them All, WrestleMania. However, the Japanese star has yet to challenge for a title in NXT. Hideo Itami is on quite a roll as of late. Could this be his golden opportunity?

Who will become the No. 1 Contender to the NXT Championship? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable, live on the award-winning WWE Network on Wednesday, May 20, at 8 ET/5 PT!

The Japanese Superstar, who was announced for a No. 1 Contender’s Triple Threat Match at TakeOver: Unstoppable, was in no mood for Rose’s antics, stopping them with a series of swift and hard kicks. Rose yanked Itami off the ropes and went on offense. Digging down deep, Itami battled back and clobbered Rose with the Shotgun Kick to win the match.

Hideo Itami def. CJ Parker

CJ Parker was hoping his crusade to save the planet would go a little better on Earth Day, but Hideo Itami had other plans. Parker gained the upper hand, using a rope break to his advantage and taking Itami to the ground. Despite Parker’s willingness to bend the rules, his foe’s fighting spirit prevailed. Itami battled back, unleashing a flurry of devastating kicks and capping things off with a big Shotgun Kick to pick up the victory.
