Re: Top 10 Takeover Matches of 2018
This might have been NXT's best year ever in terms of match quality. Not just on Takeovers, but in general they had almost 30 matches this year that I would consider great to amazing. If I was to rank Takeover Matches:
1. Johnny Gargano vs. Andrade Almas (Philadelphia)
2. Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa (New Orleans)
3. Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa (Chicago)
4. Adam Cole vs. EC3 vs. Killian Dain vs. Lars Sullivan vs. Ricochet vs. Velveteen Dream (New Orleans)
5. Undisputed Era vs. Mustache Mountain (Brooklyn)
6. Tommaso Ciampa vs. Velveteen Dream (Wargames)
7. Undisputed Era vs. Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan (Chicago)
8. Johnny Gargano vs. Aleister Black (Wargames)
9. Undisputed Era vs. War Raiders, Pete Dunne & Richochet (Wargames)
10. Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa (Brooklyn)
Any other year, Black vs. Almas, Cole vs. Ricochet, Cole vs. Black, Ricochet vs. Dream and Sane vs. Baszler would have made my top ten easily, but this year was so loaded that just missed out.
Overall, NXT had 17 of my top 21 WWE matches of the year, which is just insane.
