Watched ER 2012 last night, gotta say, I really enjoyed the Cena/Lesnar match. Pretty much a squash match, and I didn't mind Cena going over, it was just a different feel than anything else I've seen since going back through 2011-2012. Bryan/Sheamus 2/3 Falls was really good too, the arm/shoulder work was well done and both looked strong. Good show overall.

Lesnar vs. Cena was my MOTY for 2012 simply because it was different than anything we saw in a really, really long time up to that point.

I wish that Lesnar came back instead of Suplex City Lesnar.

When he was still in Ring of Honor and feuding with Owens I say in the 4th row for their big blow out match. If Generico lost he lost his mask and if Steen he had to leave ROH. I didn't want Steen to leave and decided I wanted him to win. I wore a Kevin Steen shirt to the event. You want to know what I was doing 5 minutes into the match? Cheering for El Generico despite the fact that I had already decided that because of the consequences of the match I wanted him to lose. He won the match and there are only a handful of moments that I was happier for.

Based on that 1 match I can only conclude that Zayn is the best babyface that I've seen in person and I've pretty much seen everyone active in wrestling today in person.

Sheamus vs Danielson from Extreme Rules is complete excellence.

The match we knew they could have that got jipped numerous times prior, finally got a chance to happen. And look how grand it was.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.

Re: Official Match/DVD/Show Discussion Thread (And Stairs)

NXT Takeover: The End was another show of the year candidate imo. Not as great as Dallas, but pretty damn good.

Tye Dillinger vs. Andrade "Cien" Almas - ***
NXT Tag Titles: American Alpha (c) vs. The Revival - ****
Austin Aries vs. Shinsuke Nakamura - ****
NXT Women's Title: Asuka (c) vs. Nia Jax - *** 1/4
NXT Championship Steel Cage Match: Samoa Joe (c) vs. Finn Balor - *** 1/2

Yeah, whole show was good. Loved the finish to the main event and I can't fuckin wait for the inevitable Joe vs. Nakamura. Hopefully in Brooklyn?

Damn good show tonight.

NXT TakeOver: The End

Andrade "Cien" Almas vs. Tye Dillinger - **3/4

The Revival vs. American Alpha - ****1/4

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Austin Aries - ***3/4

Nia Jax vs. Asuka - ***1/2

Main event was a bit disappointing, but still enjoyable. Pretty good TakeOver.

I really liked the intensity in the first several minutes with all the hard chops and kicks and usage of the cage. That one that Joe took to the face while Balor was standing on the ropes was fucking NASTY. Didn't really care for them casually trading sequences in the last couple minutes though, but man that finish was awesome. Really didn't expect to see that.

I enjoyed the stiffness and the strike exchanges during the initial stages of the match quite a bit, too; what bothered me was them going for the exit and trying to escape from so early on. One minute they were exchanging chops, kicks, elbows like they were trying to kill each other, the next someone's heading for the door or trying to climb the cage.

I know they both want to win the Title real bad, but this has been built up as such a pride-fueled feud from both sides that it seems weird for them to go from "IMMA KICK THE SHIT OUTTA YOU" to trying to escape the cage as quickly as possible in such a short span of time. Instead, if they'd managed to ramp up the aggressiveness even more I'd have marked the fuck out. Plus I wanted to see a bit of colour, but we all figured that wasn't gonna happen

Finish was awesome though, and Joe making anyone his bitch is always entertaining.

I wasn't bothered by the early attempts at escaping because I felt like they did away with it quickly. It really felt like both of them wanted to decisively beat the other guy.

I'm expecting (or hoping) that Balor either debuts at MITB to help Styles or he gets drafted somewhere next month. I feel like he's run his course in NXT and they don't really need him at the top anymore with Joe, Nakamura, Aries, the returning Itami, and the soon to debut Bobby Roode I'm sure.

Almas vs. Dillinger - **1/2
American Alpha vs. The Revival - ****1/4
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Austin Aries - ****1/2
Asuka vs. Nia Jax - **1/2
Samoa Joe vs. Finn Balor - ***3/4

I think Balor will have one more match at Brooklyn before leaving NXT for good and his opponent will either be Itami, Roode or Aries.
