What Was The MOTN at Takeover New York?

Well, I'm the guy who asked what WOULD be the MOTN at Takeover New York. Seems only right that I be the guy who asks what WAS the MOTN at Takeover.

To me it comes down to Dream vs. Riddle and Walter vs. Dunne. Dream vs. Riddle was a great character clash and both guys came out looking like superstars. And Walter and Dunne had an absolute physical war.

If I had to pick one, it's Dunne vs. Walter.

Cole and Gargano had an epic 3rd fall but 2 boring and plodding ones. And the tag match and women's match were both very well done as well, just not quite up to par. Which is not an insult in this case, lol.

Re: What Was The MOTN at Takeover New York?

Cole/Gargano is the most emotional match I've seen in years. I'm gonna go with that one by a decent margin.

Re: What Was The MOTN at Takeover New York?

It's honestly really hard to decide. Aside from the women's match, all four are contenders for it.

Gargano vs. Cole - Technical wrestling, stacking the deck, and full circle catharsis.

Dunne vs. WALTER - Brutal war of attrition.

Dream vs. Riddle - Great role reversal and charisma on display.

Tag match - Blistering pace and a fantastic sendoff.

Think I'll have to lean to Gargano vs. Cole since it's hard to top that story, but all of them are contenders.

Re: What Was The MOTN at Takeover New York?

They were all great. The Women's Match is out solely because of the poor finish imo. I guess that either Riddle vs. Dream or WALTER vs. Dunne for me. It's a toss up as to which, but I'm leaning more towards WALTER vs. Dunne right now.

Dunne vs WALTER for me. Just brutal, intense perfection. And it felt like it had a really big atmosphere to it since it seemed inevitable Dunne’s reign was coming to an end.

Re: What Was The MOTN at Takeover New York?

I'll go with Dunne vs Walter. Cole vs Gargano, Dream vs Riddle and the tag match were all great as well, but Dunne vs Walter is the match i'll remember most.



Fave Five:
1. Sasha Banks
2. Sami Zayn
3. AJ Styles
4. Becky Lynch
5. Kevin Owens

Re: What Was The MOTN at Takeover New York?

I'm going with the tag match. It's honestly hard to pick one and I'm kind of deciding this on a whim here, but the other matches had some very slight (or in one case rather large) disconnections with me.
Dream vs. Riddle - Not a fan of rollup finishes though it did make sense here
Dunne vs. Walter - Rather slow to start, Walter is... Idk what to think of the guy, some things about him just seem off, hard to put a finger on it
Women's Fatal 4-way - It was a women's match. And Shayna retains, LEL!
Cole vs. Gargano - First two falls were rather uneventful, which isn't a problem in and of itself, obviously the final fall is gonna be the main course. But the way that the Era got schooled (I don't wanna say buried, but it might actually be the correct term here) and Johnny just kicking out of bazooka shots to the face went way too far at the end.
The tag match I could get behind from start to finish, including the aftermath.

Long story short, amazing show from start to finish, 9/10* from me (probably 10/10 if Io goes over).

"Didn't I tell you? I'm Santa Claus. It's time for me to go make a wish come true...

Walter v Dunne, easy. Those two had a battle! Reminded me of the Sami Zayn v Nakamura match on NxT back in 2016. Only Walter and Dunne was far more brutal

Walter vs Pete Dunne.

I haven't been that engrossed in a match since Almas vs Gargano at the start of last year.

Just the way they built through the match was captivating.
