NXT Championship (Ladder Match):

Bo Dallas (C) versus Adrian Neville

Bo Dallas has been champion for quite awhile now after a stunning upset of then champion Big E Langston. It seems like it's time for a change at the top and Adrian Neville definitely has the insane aerial maneuvers to pull it off. Expect Neville to be the New NXT Champion.

NXT Women's Championship:

Paige (C) versus Emma

This was the match-up in the finals of the NXT Women's tournament, and while Emma is now on the main roster it could be time for a change here as well. EmmaNation will embrace the Emmalution as she become's NXT Women's Champion.

Grudge Match:

WWE Superstar Antonio Cesaro versus NXT's Sami Zayn

These two had what is regarded as the "NXT Match of the Year" in 2013 in there two out of three falls match. Antonio Cesaro won by taking the final two falls, and while Zayn is fighting off injuries, he and his knee have been cleared for this match-up. Zayn should get the win to continue this rivalry.

Since the special is two hours long expect there may also be an appearance by NXT Tag-Team Champions Konnor and Viktor (The Ascension) and many more stars and divas on the NXT roster. NXT General Manager JBL has stated there will be special appearances by the following: John Cena, the WWE Tag-Team Champions the New Age Outlaws and "HBK" Shawn Michaels during the show.
