After how well they got on last week, team Balor and Kross together again.  Then have Balor & Kross vs Cole & O'Reilly; unlikely partners unite to try to win the tag titles, maybe in a ladder match (as suggested above).

Do you work for them? Sounds like it with that booking.

Your top stars. Incredible. Like a student kicking off on a Wetherspoons bouncer for not accepting NUS.

“Me and Hunter once went forty seven minutes in Hell in a Cell. Bored the piss out of everyone.” ”Challenge accepted.”

Like clockwork.

Odds on them making the Cruiserweight Title unification another ladder match? I like to imagine this is a live shot of their creative team trying their hardest to not book yet another ladder match.

The gauntlet match competitors are being determined by a 12 man battle royal next week between Bronson Reed, Pete Dunne, Roderick Strong, Kushida, Isaiah Scott, Leon Ruff, Dexter Lumis, Austin Theory, Jake Atlas, Cameron Grimes, LA Knight and Tyler Rust. The final 6 in that match go on to Takeover

But are they leaving a space open to have a final chance ladder match in the final week?

Next week is the final week, essentially whoever the first two eliminated out of the final 6 in the battle royal start the gauntlet match at Takeover, whoever wins is the last man in

A battle royal where the 6 finalists get in the gauntlet, but the order of the final 6 determines their spot in the gauntlet match.   They have have to win the gauntlet to get a title shot the next day.

Meanwhile, Rhea Ripley can show up on her debut on Raw and say "I want a title shot at the biggest show of the year", despite having not beaten any other contenders and for some reason Asuka's allowed to decide if that's OK or not (unless Rhea had been given the go ahead backstage by Adam Pearce, etc to challenge Asuka, which would make Adam Pearce etc very unfair in the match making decisions).

Takeover looks great. Much better lineup than Wrestlemania.

Gargano storming out of Regal’s office and shouting, “I’m not closing your door!” was hilarious. It’s night and day watching Gargano and Ciampa hang around NXT long past their sell by date. Whilst Ciampa has just lingered like a bad smell, Gargano has managed to develop a great little niche as the daft, goofy prick.

I thought the, “security footage,” of Adam Cole confronting Kyle O’Reilly at his BJJ class was a nice, fresh approach. Actually made sense for them to have footage of the incident without an invisible camera man being there. The way they’ve styled Kyle, though. I can’t get over it. He’s like the anti-Wardlow.

“We can give you eight pound cash or thirteen pound store credit.”

It's the Joy Division shirt, do you reckon he's ever listened to them?

The war is over, NXT is moving to Tuesdays from April 13th, the first night of Stand & Deliver.

USA Network have extended the deal too, which I’ve got to admit is a bit of a surprise

The first week after.
