Wrestling is one of few escapes from this sick, sad world we live in that I have these days. And while most of the wrestling I watch right now only serves to depress me even further, the glorious show that is Lucha Underground and also NXT when it has purpose are our saving graces. And while I am somewhat looking forward to Survivor Series just for some fun – because let’s face it, there’s not too much that’s at stake – this show will be the highlight of the weekend, more than likely. (Although Aztec Warfare on Lucha Underground will be better than both!)

Tye Dillinger vs. Bobby Roode
This should be a fun match. Of course the first thing that everyone talks about this match is that they’re both Canadian and the crowd’s going to cheer both. Even though one’s a clear cut heel. I don’t think we’re going to have to worry about that. So as much as we want Tye to win I don’t think that’s happening.

Prediction: Bobby Roode

Dusty Classic Finals
The Authors of Pain vs. TM61

I feel like both tag matches on this show could go either way, to be honest. This kind of feels like a clear cut AOP are going to win, but they’ve seemed to get closer to losing with each match, and Paul Ellering isn’t allowed at ringside for this I believe. But with what I think will happen with the tag team title match, I’m thinking it’s going the way I expect.

Prediction: The Authors of Pain

NXT Women’s Championship
Asuka (c) vs. Mickie James

So this should be pretty awesome. Everyone loves Mickie James and I’m so happy to see her back. That being said the victor is pretty obvious. It makes sense though – Asuka has no legit competition yet and Ember Moon is great but it’s too early.

Prediction: Asuka

2 out of 3 Falls Match for the NXT World Tag Team Championship
(c) The Revival (c) vs. Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa

This will without question be the best match on the show. It was at Brooklyn, and there’s noting on this card that comes close. Plus it’s 2 out of 3 falls. I think Gargano and Ciampa will win but if they don’t, I expect Ciampa to turn heel.

Prediction: Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa

NXT World Heavyweight Championship
Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Samoa Joe

I really want Joe to get the belt back. But regardless – whomever loses can we please bring up to Smackdown?

Prediction: Shinsuke Nakamura

The show should be really fun. Review Saturday night.
