Re: Meltzer on the WOR: “The Johnny Gargano vs Adam Cole match is perhaps the best WWE match of all time.”
I thought the match was just good, nowhere near MOTN but I think the main factor is probably the main issue I have with NXT and it's to do with offence.
The overkill of multiple guys throwing knees, superkicks and enzugiri kicks is reaching insane levels. There just so many, and then you get these two guys absolutely spamming them to just 150% greater levels, I was just rolling my eyes by the end. It just grates on you and it's a booking issue.
But also I was just more interested in other matches. The opener tag match was absolutely stellar and amazing, and in my opinion Black is a megastar waiting to happen.
Also I loved Dream/Bro match - Dream just has such a personality, way more than Johnny and Cole for example, he just pulls you in. Plus Bro was great, I hadn't seen him that much and he was great.
Then that fucking war for the UK title, what a fucking brutal and great change of pace match. Amazing stuff. That's what sets these Takeover events apart, you get this totally different match in between the more samey US ones.
So yeah, I'd put Gargano / Cole match probably 3rd best of the night for me.
