Not sold on Riddle but Cole is one of the best in the world.

I don't think it's super fair to take the "peak" moments of the very first match on USA between arguably two of the best and biggest deal guys on the brand... It's CLEARLY supposed to be like a big deal Takeover match. You won't see guys kicking out of Panama Sunrises every Wednesday night.

I can't argue against people who don't like this stuff in general, but at the same time the specific context DOES matter a bit here. They were trying to hit the road running and have an awesome epic match.

No. Riddle is still a geek.

Re: Adam Cole & Matt Riddle = STARS

Wish AEW had Riddle, nXt is blessed. That guy is one of the best future megastars around.

Ridiculous. Dude's a legit MMA fighter and consistently puts on great show-stealing matches on Takeover.

If you don't like Riddle, then I'm guessing there's basically nobody you like these days and you're possibly a body building mark.

I don't care what the ratings will turn out to be.

That NXT opening match destroyed everything AEW offered last night.

Sorry but that gif also made me not want to watch it. It looks exactly like the stuff I hated in Cole vs gargano and if that was what the match was like, I will pass. Still think both are great but looks like I match I won't like.

Re: Adam Cole & Matt Riddle = STARS

Well, that's not correct, because of that pesky little thing called personal taste, and I like Riddle.

Personally, I thought the match was very good and right on the money to open up the competition against AEW. Solid stuff.
