NXT - Post NXT Takeover discussion in progress

Recommended Posts

With Baszler having back up in Shafir and Duke for the Takeover rematch with Kairi does anyone think we’ll get an Io Shirai appearance at Takeover or will they hold her off for the following tapings?

Io has been working with Shafir and Duke at NXT live events and it would make sense as they have already established Io and Kairi as friends.

Shamir and Duke are about as convincing as the Mean Street Posse though.  They're awful.  I know the idea of 4 Horsewomen v 4 Horsewomen sounds cool, but those two simply aren't up to it.

I thought Natalya crying as a match finish would be the worst thing I’ve seen all week but gosh that Gargano promo was terrible. What was he going for here? Was he going for anything at all? It was completely flat and boring.  You’ve been through a lot Johnny, at least try sound like you give a fuck!

Dream and ciampa fought at our house show last night and didn’t really click.  Hoping they get some practice in before the big event (ciampa hasn’t been at house shows for the past 2 months)!

as an aside I won the highly prestigious and competitive ‘fan of the night’ (they randomly select anyone who tweets) and had to meet Chelsea green. She got a good handful of my boobs!

I don't get the hate for Lacey Evans at all. She's a proper star in the making for NXT and if handled right that will transition onto the main roster. Whilst I'm talking about female NXT stars, Bianca Belair is the biggest standout they've ever had on that roster. That lady has it all.

Can't miss. Hopefully like Rocky Maivia was, not like D'Lo was.

That “un-de-fea-ted” catchphrase is shit though

I like it. Adds to her obnoxious character.

Both Johnny Gargano and Candice LaRae promos were horrendous

Sailing Regatta Dream on the other hand continues to be fantastic, and Lars played his part too. Nigel McGuiness also doesn’t know the difference between a shadow and silhouette 

The other two “Horsewomen” are a right pair of chumps. Considering that Ronda had to say regarding Mayweather and the domestic violence, Marina apparently doesn’t have an issue wearing a tshirt of a convicted rapist

Matt Riddle didn't even wear shoes when meeting Triple H for the first time. Brilliant.

Is his character that he's a cocky, unlikeable dick?  Because otherwise I fear I'm just not getting him at all.  I'm with Ohno on this one, I hope he smashes some respect into Riddle.

Good episode this week as ever  BUT... that Belair/Yim match was all sorts of awkward.  They really didn't gel at all and Yim seemed a step off the pace.  Belair is money though, she has charisma in spades.

I know people don't like Lacey Evans much but she's doing everything that's asked of her and I quite like her finisher!

O'Reilly v Hanson was excellent, really good big man / small man match.  O'Reilly's selling is so good, funny without being too comical.  Hanson is the clear star of the War Raiders, but he's not the sort to get a big push in WWE so tag team specialism is the best future.

War Games is gonna be goodt!  I'm really hoping the Dream wins the title.  I read a rumour there'd be some NXT call-ups next week so Gargano and Ciampa could potentially be off ski after this?

Matt Riddle gimmick is just dumb, I don’t get how this is a face gimmick. King of Bros is not a gimmick that strikes me as being a future WWE or Universal champ. 

I don’t get it. What’s the fuss?
