Nah. Gargano went full 2006 Cena. Never go full 2006 Cena.

Adam Cole should get called up on Monday and take the Universal belt off Rollins on his first night. I rate that guy.

Well that is his opinion. He is entitled to it not sure why that bothers you .

I think people are being way too hyperbolic on the sides praising it and critzing it. I enjoyed it but it was the 4th best match of the night for me and had flaws. Still enjoyed it but yeah they went one too far with the kick outs.

I must confess that I wasn't really invested in while watching it but the fact that the same move that got Cole a early lead couldn't put Gargano down after 30 minutes of action was a poorly planned decision. Made everything seem void.

You could not live with your own failure. Where did that bring you? Back to me.

I'm not surprised. Dave loves overbooked spots where nobody sells.

I liked the match a lot but my issues are actually that most of the beginning was just kind of meh alongside it being slightly overdone on the kickouts (I think if you take out the second Last shot and first Johnny kicked out of and had him rolled up instead of pinned on a last shot at the beginning therefore after the superkick and last shot make that the first time ever someone kicked out of it then same ending boom the kickout problem is solved imo)

I'll say it still was better than the women's match to me personally but I did like the other 3 matches more.

I enjoyed the match but my only gripe was the sequence leading up to the first fall. It all felt like it was going in slow motion.

You simply can´t have the greatest match of all-time in NXT. The wrestlers and the stage are simply too irrelevant. But Meltzer knows that. He is a professional troll, so he obviously knows people will have a strong reaction to his statement either way.
