NXT Stand & Deliver Predictions: 04.01.23

We have reached WrestleMania weekend! But before we get to the biggest show of the year, NXT has their premium live event Stand & Deliver which takes place at 1 PM ET. Below is the match list and the predictions from us here at Diva Dirt! Don’t forget to check back in during the show to talk about it live with our Stand & Deliver Discussion Post.

Stand & Deliver

  • Schsim vs. Chase U – Eight Person Tag Team Match for control over Chase U
  • Kiana James & Fallon Henley (c) vs. Isla Dawn & Alba Fyre – NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles
  • Roxanne Perez (c) vs. Zoey Stark vs. Gigi Dolin vs. Lyra Valkyria vs. Tiffany Stratton vs. Indi Hartwell – Ladder Match for NXT Women’s Title

PREDICTIONS –

Schism vs. Chase U

COLBY – Ava Raine making her awaited debut on a major event in Hollywood actually makes sense. I almost feel bad for her because of the pressure she’s facing, but I have my hopes that she’ll do just fine. Meanwhile, Thea Hail has been an underrated character since she burst onto the scene. Both of these women are so young and will no doubt be the future of WWE. Considering the winners get control over Chase U, I’m going with Schism on this one.

WINNERS: Schism

GARY – The big story for me going in to this match up is Ava’s in-ring debut but I know the stipulation is all about the future of Chase U. While it would be surprising to see Chase U end, that’s exactly what I am going to predict. I’m going to be bold and predict that The Schism win the match and Thea Hail joins them after being ‘brainwashed’ by them back when they kidnapped her several weeks ago. Very out there prediction and I love Thea as a babyface but I’m going with some out of the box prediction here.

WINNERS: Schism

NICK – I don’t see Ava losing her first match which makes this easy to answer. I have enjoyed this storyline more than I thought I would and the way Schism was taking over the Chase U classroom last week was fun. Even though Chase U can use a win, I see this perhaps being the end of the group – for now.

WINNERS: Schism

Kiana James & Fallon Henley (c) vs. Isla Dawn & Alba Fyre – NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles

COLBY –The story here is more about Kiana and Fallon trying to be a cohesive unit, but they’re also under the pressure of working together against a strong duo like Isla Dawn and Alba Fyre. I’ve enjoyed their brief reign and the character work that has come with it. On the other hand, Dawn and Fyre seem more likely to score the win here so that the current champions can really start feuding.

WINNERS: Isla Dawn & Alba Fyre

GARY – In spite of their rocky relationship, I would really hate to see Henley and James lose the titles right now because otherwise what was the point in giving them the titles? Fyre and Dawn could have done this storyline with The KC’s in my opinion if Business Casual are just going to lose here. I expect more shenanigans to further the wedge in their team and Sebastian to not be as big of a deal as he seems but I’m pulling for a James and Henley victory here tonight.

WINNERS – Kiana James and Fallon Henley

NICK – Out of the three matches, this is one I think can go either way. I think we may find out who Sebastian is in the process. Regardless, I just think it is too early for Kiana and Fallon to drop that gold. Let this storyline of untrust continue a bit longer.

WINNERS – Kiana James and Fallon Henley

Roxanne Perez (c) vs. Zoey Stark vs. Gigi Dolin vs. Lyra Valkyria vs. Tiffany Stratton vs. Indi Hartwell – Ladder Match for NXT Women’s Title

COLBY – I had no doubt about Roxanne missing this event, but the way they went about it was… an interesting choice. The rest of the field is impressive, which leaves me excited to see what all they pull off. If this was to crown a new champion, I’d have to pick Tiffany Stratton. But because Perez is still early in her underdog reign, I’m assuming she defies the odds once again here.

WINNER: Roxanne Perez

GARY – This is probably the match I am most looking forward to this weekend! I think the line-up is superb and even the swerve with Roxanne coming in at the last minute has an edge of realism for me. I expect a moment of Perez doubting herself, perhaps even overwhelmed at a crucial moment when climbing the ladder but this will just cause the NXT crowd to rally behind her and she will overcome in the end and win the match. Expect every woman to show out though!

WINNER: Roxanne Perez

NICK – As a big fan of Roxanne, I am glad they didn’t just strip her of the title for whatever reason as some people suggested. I think she is doing a great job as champion and should homd onto the fold a bit longer. I can see her winning this match and having it be the foundation of a feud against Tiffany or Zoey. I am really excited they made this a ladder match to add that much more appeal to it.

WINNER: Roxanne Perez
