It wasn't even in Gargano's top three NXT matches.

This NXT Takeover is whats wrong with NXT. Too much no selling and too many finishers. 4 guys couldn't even stun Gargano? 2 Japanese women, working together, couldn't do anything versus two untalented women? Two out of shape bowls of jelly fought for the UK championship, but couldn't convince me either should win. Only good match was first, War Raiders vs. the guys not going to win, because they are part of the main roster. I'd release half the competitors and just start over.

If it doesn't make money, it doesn't make sense.

LOL, sure Meltzer.

If only every match ruined finishers and had one ridiculous kickout after another.

No but this is Dave's worst opinion ever LMAO

That match wouldn't even be higher on the list than some random Kofi Kingston vs Antonio Cesaro matches that I saw on WWE Main Event like 7 years ago.

It wasn't even the third best match that night.

Best EVER? Is this an elaborate April Fool's joke?

For Meltzer Gargano is basically the NXT equivalent of Kenny or Charlotte: No matter what match he is it always gets an extra star

The only match that night that deserves 5 stars is WALTER v Dunne. It had everything, psychology, drama, storytelling and hard hitting stiffness that would make Stan Hanson proud

Not to say Cole/Gargano wasnt good, it was really good, but it was abit too overbooked for my liking. And really only ever picked up by the end.

The third fall salvaged the match but it wasn't even enough to make it the best match on the show imo. I'm not one to get mad at Dave's opinions but ever since he gave 4.5 stars to the 6 man tag main event of the Jericho cruise I really stopped putting much stock in his ratings, even as a reference point for matches to check out. 2 of my favorite wrestlers were in that match but it was just an average match with everyone goofing off. Not all matches have to be serious 45 minute broadway specials but it makes you wonder what exactly he looks for in a match.

I love Cole and Gargano is great, but no way in hell was that 'the best WWE match of all time'. It wasn't even the best NXT match this year.

Nah. I'm not putting that over Almas/Gargano. There were at least 36 superkicks in that match. Unbelievable. It was pretty epic at the end though.

I probably wouldn't argue if the first two falls weren't such snoozers. If it was the third fall by itself, maybe.
