Yeah, I feel like the only title that will change hands at the upcoming Takeover is most likely the NXT Women's title. They like having one big babyface moment each year, and that would be the best one. No offense to Ricochet fans, of course. I feel like Cole will drop the title the same night that The Undisputed Era drop the tag titles.

Triple H brought it up during the media call today, and he outright said that Brooklyn this year is basically their version of Wrestlemania.

Yo, Kairi completely fucking murdered Aliyah in that match. It ruled. I saw shades of her Lucha Underground persona there.

Closing time. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

That Gargano/Ciampa video was AMAZING.

Nice solid main event. Nothing too blow away from a wrestling standpoint but highly enjoyable nonetheless.

The EC3 vs Dream segment was decent and the parking lot segment was amusing to say the least. The rest was highly forgettable.



All Time Favourites:
Kazuchika Okada, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Eddie Guerrero, Toshiaki Kawada, Daniel Bryan, Kensuke Sasaki & Shinya Hashimoto

I write things sometimes. Always Wrestling related, obviously.

Re: NXT Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]

This to me is why NXT is fucking good, because they turned a negative into a positive and made this Aleister Black injury into a storyline.

I have a hard time believing that the culprit will play a role into the ending of the Gargano-Ciampa match.

" Ricochet is good, some days he may even be great but he isn't special. Adam Cole is special "

Decent show. The stories and build is already told. It's time for Takeover.

Re: NXT Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]

New episode thoughts:

Opening tag was fine for what it was. The Mighty heel turn was what they needed but I'm still not invested in them. Ford and Dawkins are still entertaining though.

That is how you make sweet, adorable Kairi look like a killer. By busting out the Brock Lock, 3 Diving Elbows, and The Anchor while staring down Shayna at the same time. That same submission is how she should win the title.

The Cole vs. Ricochet promo made the most out a feud that hasn't had too much interaction between the participants.

The Dream and EC3 promo duel was the perfect mix of weird charisma for me.

Gotta say, as bummed as I am that Black is out of Saturday's match, that Gargano vs. Ciampa video package was just the best. The image of Johnny saying "my dream is to be NXT Champion" only to go straight to a shot of Ciampa holding the title was brilliant.

Bate vs. Strong had a lot of great transitions. Solid match overall.

Re: NXT Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]

Decent go-home show. Beginning was what it was. I can't really get into the Street Profits or The Mighty.

Kairi vs. Aliyah. Kairi killed her. I wonder if Kairi is looking too strong though? Commentators tried to make it seem Shayna was insecure but she didn't look it herself. Then again, they also showed Bianca getting ready to return and they did so for a reason. She won't be challenging Shayna, that's for sure. Confusing.

Velveteen and EC3 segment was fun. This is what's been missing all along. Though EC3 laying out Velveteen basically tells us he's losing on Saturday.

Gargano and Ciampa video was great. Teased Johnny going back into Johnny Wrestling mode but definitely still showed his descent into madness. I still can't see Ciampa dropping the title now. It's way too early. I'm still predicting they both leave on stretchers.

Bate vs. Strong was good, but I was expecting a bit better from them. Bate winning definitely means Undisputed is retaining on Saturday. NXT doesn't give as much away with these go-home shows but that's more obvious now.

So yeah, it really seems that only the women's and NA titles have a chance of changing on Saturday. At least one title has to change and there needs to be a big babyface moment. It won't be Gargano in this state.
