NXT - Post NXT Takeover discussion in progress

A great show until the War Games match
Good final 5 minutes, but apart from that & showing Dunne to be a beast, WTF was that??
War Raiders are fat, loud and sloppy... just like your mum


Gargano, Black, Ciampa & Dream - I fucking love these guys.
My simple decider to if it's a great match is do I forget in the moment it's a work (and if you can make that happen while still doing Hogan impressions then you'll go far kid)

Is Ohno just a WWE style "haha we own you" rib? Seriously what is the point in him

I disagree with the War Raiders remarks. In that match, nothing was ever going to be a technical classic. MotN...a tossup between Dream/Ciampa, and Gargano being absolved of his sins.

Kairi/Shayna felt like it lacked something, and the clear botch on the finish pin (Which they then replayed!!!) took the shine off.

Can I just put a word in for how "active" the refs were, from visuals in the Ciampa match to Drake being a boss in the opener and the main. Saving Cole's shins on the cannonball spot, chekcing the table was fixed 2nd time around, and tidying up.

 re: Velveteen/Ciampa. They fucking HAD me, dead to rights in thinking Velveteen was going over. The DDT to the floor, followed by the top rope elbow drop had me completely lost in suspense. It was like ''they're not going to... holy shit.. they're really doing this..'' and Ciampa fucking kicks out. It's moments like that that keep me watching. Getting lost in the trance of pro-wrestling is so rare nowadays. It reminded me of Taker's streak nearly ending following Taker eating both HHH and HBK's finishers that one year. Good stuff.

Stunning show, throughout I thought. The mini-match did its job, and Ohno sold like a champ. What a team player! The women have had better, but still lot's of fun. The WG match was gorgeous, with everyone looking strong, tons of story-line, a blow-off and a next match set up, all in one. Black/Gargano and Ciampa/Dream, this is why I adore NXT; the build up and executions on display here are, regularly, faultless. An amazing show!

Fucking state of Matt Riddle.

Yeah I don't get it either. He looks like a goofy tosser.

King of Bros is not a gimmick that strikes me as being a future WWE or Universal champ. 

Is that a bad thing? Not every wrestler or gimmick should be destined for the top spot. Its development after all, like with most gimmicks in NXT it may take a while to develop and fine tune it into something potentially successful.

There's a women front row who really doesn't look like she want to be there... Some amazing wrestling going on and her face doesn't change!

Literally just got done watching the show, absolutely phenomenal from start to finish, Dream/Ciampa was my pick for star match but Gargano/Black ran it close. Sane and Basler had another quality match too with some back up now for Kairi in Dakota Kai and Io Sharai. The WarGames match was awesome too, works so much better as a 4 v 4 rather than the 3 x 3 format used last year

Gargano/Black was MOTN for me with Ciampa/Dream a very close second.

War Games was decent but the format makes it a strange one to book and keep hot compared to normal matches. Was most impressed with War Raiders as I had a fairly low opinion of them before.

The Women's match was fine. I wondered when Kairi would finally have friends that cared enough to come out for her.

Velveteen Dream is a mega star. They will have dropped the biggest bollock ever if he's not the face of the company for the next decade.

Part of me really wants him called up to Raw tomorrow night. Guys going to be an absolute megastar. The fact he got a headband to have such a reaction is incredible.
