Former NXT Champion and Logan Paul hater Kevin Owens made the first prediction. However, he threw shade and NXT’s executive producer Triple H and his In Your House history. At In Your House 1995, Triple H faced Henry Godwinn in a Hog Pen match, which saw the Game get tossed into a slop-filled pig pen.

The Million Dollar Championship match had many superstars excited, including Greg Hamilton and WWE Official Adam Pearce. Pearce and former SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley picked LA Knight to pick up the win, while Hamilton picked Grimes. As for Apollo Crews, he and Commander Azeez had no predictions to make.

One half of the Women’s Tag Team Champions Natalya couldn’t wait to see Ember Moon vs Raquel Gonzalez clash for the NXT Women’s Championship. She picked Ember, and so did Liv Morgan, who picked her but expected Raquel to win. Women’s Champion Bianca Belair had the back of Raquel, who she claimed belonged to the new generation of women’s champions in WWE.

Kevin Owens ultimately settled for Xia Li vs Mercedes Martinez and predicted Xia to walk out victorious. SmackDown commentator and former NXT superstar Pat McAfee picked the Fatal Five Way match as the one he’s most excited for.
