Undertaker Returns To Avenge Roman Reigns [Segment]
Undertaker and Roman Reigns will be back on WWE television in the same week. That is no coincidence. Undertaker took two major WrestleMania losses in his career. One was to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30, where his streak ended. The other was to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33, where he had his second and last loss at WrestleMania. Now that Reigns has the world title and a Saudi PPV is coming up, Undertaker now has the opportunity to get his revenge on Reigns for that loss and become world champion again.
Prediction: Undertaker Will Avenge Roman Reigns
Nia Jax vs. Raquel Rodriguez [Grudge Match]
Nia Jax will defeat Raquel Rodriguez because she is on a dominant winning streak since returning and needs to solidify her dominance for a world title shot against Rhea Ripley. Don’t be surprised if Shayna Baszler interrupts this match and forces a no-contest after their pure fist brawl last week.
Prediction: Nia Jax
Kofi Kingston vs. Ivar [Viking Rules Match]
Since Kofi Kingston defeated Ivar two weeks ago and this is now under Viking Rules, Ivar has the advantage here to get his win back. This is clearly building up to a trilogy tag match between the two teams, where they can battle for the next tag title shot against the champions.
Becky Lynch (c) vs. Tegan Nox [NXT Women’s Title]
It is easy to say that Becky Lynch will defeat Tegan Nox to retain the NXT Women’s Title, as it is obvious Becky is not losing the title to Nox after Nox has been off TV for so long. Nonetheless, this will be a star-making performance for Nox as she gets a solid rub from the very best in the business. However, getting some near falls in a losing effort won’t be enough. An epic storyline or feud has to happen to take Nox to that next level, so this match will result in a no-contest with Jade Cargill debuting, forcing Nox and Lynch. to join forces as babyfaces in a long-term storyline.
Prediction: Jade Cargill Debuts
