NXT Stand and Deliver 2023 is set to take place on Saturday, April 1st 2023, but what are our predictions for the card itself?
There are several big matches set to take place on the night from Los Angeles, California, with all of the brand’s titles on the line.
We’ll be looking at the individual bouts in this article and giving our thoughts on who is most likely to win in each of the featured contests.
NXT Stand and Deliver 2023 Predictions
WWE NXT Women’s Title Six Way Ladder Match: Roxanne Perez (c) vs. Zoey Stark vs. Gigi Dolin vs. Indi Hartwell vs. Lyra Valkyria vs. Tiffany Stratton
This match has had somewhat of an odd build, but it looks pretty clear that the company wants to give Roxanne Perez a big win on the biggest stage as her coronation as Champion took place in the Performance Center earlier this year after Mandy Rose was released.
We can’t see anyone but Perez getting the win here, realistically, although someone like Zoey Stark could have an outside chance.
FightFans Prediction: Roxanne Perez to retain the NXT Women’s Championship
WWE NXT Tag Team Title Triple Threat Match: Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) (c) vs. The Creed Brothers (Brutus Creed & Julius Creed) (w/Ivy Nile) vs. The D’Angelo Family (Channing Lorenzo & Tony D’Angelo)
This is probably the most difficult match to predict on the card, because really it could go to any one of the three teams.
Despite that, we’re of the thinking that Gallus will retain, as giving The Creed Brothers the big win here would feel pretty flat and The D’Angelo Family are still treading water at the moment creatively.
FightFans Prediction: Gallus to retain the WWE NXT Tag Team Titles
WWE NXT North American Title Fatal Five Way Match: Wes Lee (c) vs. JD McDonagh vs. Ilja Dragunov vs. Dragon Lee vs. Axiom
Ok so first prediction out of the way, this will be the match of the night and possibly the entire WrestleMania 39 weekend.
In terms of who actually leaves with the belt, we’ve got a feeling that it’s between Wes Lee and Dragon Lee, and it depends on how the company wants to present the recently signed Mexican star Dragon Lee.
Wes has had a good run with the belt, but it is probably time for him to drop it and start going on the chase again or move up to the NXT Championship scene.
FightFans Prediction: Dragon Lee to win the NXT North American Championship
Unsanctioned Match: Johnny Gargano vs. Grayson Waller
This HAS to be a massive win for Grayson Waller, because he is extremely close to a main roster call-up and this would be a major moment for him.
That’s it, that’s our prediction.
FightFans Prediction: Grayson Waller to win
WWE NXT Women’s Tag Team Title Match: Fallon Henley & Kiana James (c) vs. Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn
This looks like it could be the time to trigger the heel turn for Kiana James and have her feuding with Fallon Henley (again) going forward.
Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn haven’t exactly been a stellar tag team on the developmental brand, but they have enough to justifiably be champions.
FightFans Prediction: Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn to win the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships
Mixed Eight Man Tag Team Match: Chase U (Andre Chase, Duke Hudson & Thea Hail) & Tyler Bate vs. Schism (Ava, Jagger Reid, Joe Gacy & Rip Fowler)
This should be a fun match as Chase U has been making for great television over the past few months, but Schism DESPERATELY needs a win.
FightFans Prediction: Schism to win
WWE NXT Title Match: Bron Breakker (c) vs. Carmelo Hayes (w/Trick Williams)
Carmelo Hayes has been one of the absolute standout performers on NXT for quite some time, but we do not see him getting the title here.
The main reason is that he is probably going to be heading to the main roster as part of the WWE Draft in a couple of months, so there’s no need for him to win the title.
Breakker has been solid as the top Champion of the brand and it will need to be another up-and-coming name that will be around in developmental for a while to beat him.
FightFans Prediction: Bron Breakker to retain the NXT Championship
