Re: Meltzer's ratings for NXT Takeover: Brooklyn 4

I basically agree with all of it, except I gave the women's match ****. I thought it was the best women's match in NXT since Asuka/Moon.

But yeah, three matches that earned ****1/2 stars on a 5 match card goes to show how awesome this Takeover was.

Re: Meltzer's ratings for NXT Takeover: Brooklyn 4

Not that we need Meltzer's ratings to show it, but a few people thought this TO wasn't up to par with TO's of the past? It was a much better show than SS in terms of match quality. I'd take the tag match, Cole/Ric, and Gargano/Ciampa over any of the matches at SS. And two of those matches have already happened at multiple TO's in the past (Tag match & Gargano/Ciampa).

Absolutely nobody except maybe some Indian marks were expecting the contrary

I thought this show was quite better than Chicago II and on par with Philadelphia. Not sure how someone can think this Takeover wasn't one of the best we've seen.

It did feel a bit weak, but then again a weak NXT TakeOver is usually always better than an average main roster PPV.

I’m going to rewatch the best 3 matches to put a final rating on them but watching love it felt like.

Tag match - ****1/2
Cole v Richohet ****1/4
Gargano v Ciampa - ****

Tomasso Ciampa v. Johnny Gargano is too high, while I liked it, it was most certainly the weakest of all their matches. The rest I kind of agre with

Cole vs Ricochet and the Women's match both blew my mind.

Well both of their other matches were 5 stars so yes this was their weakest one.
