LOL. As long as we're popping the same 300 virgins in the crowd I guess.

At this point, most matches tend to be like this. Whether WWE, AEW, NXT, or Japan. Too many big move no sells and kickouts. Just the norm now.

Again, it was the peak moment of a match on the premiere. Was the entire match like this? No. Was is a sprint though? Absolutely. Different from the Gargano matches based of the merit that these two wrestle completely different styles where Cole & Johnny wrestle extremely similar.

It's incredibly stupid. They should've both been fired for that. The lack of psychology and the sheer fucking mockery being made of wrestling here is shocking.

Re: Adam Cole & Matt Riddle = STARS

Riddle isn't a geek. Especially compared to 90% of the NXT roster in 2019. Knock it off.

I liked Cole and Riddle's match. Riddle is one of the very few stars left in NXT besides Dream (and now Balor, too) and it shows. That said...yeah, that was a spot I absolutely disliked. I understand "fighting spirit" and "sheer will and determination" but a solid kick to the temple is a solid kick to the temple. You aren't going to recover so soon from that, let alone a German Suplex afterwards. That was dumb.

Re: Adam Cole & Matt Riddle = STARS

I just still don't get the Riddle hype, i never did. I absolutely loathe his gimmick. He sounds like he's a bit of an asshole in real life too. Adam Cole has won me over although i wouldn't say i'm a fan or anything. I didn't get the hype around him either at first but I can appreciate him now.

Personally, I thought the match was very good and right on the money to open up the competition against AEW. Solid stuff.
Personal taste does eventually have to run up against some sort of objective reality at SOME point. For example, calling Trump an attractive man. I don't care how fucked up your personal taste in, nobody would buy that.

Re: Adam Cole & Matt Riddle = STARS

It was just too much some of that blatant no selling that is annoying (I'll rewatch it and see if a 2nd watch changes my opinion at all). Cole is a good wrestler but there is something about him that just is missing to me. Riddle is a dick and I actually want to see more of him. Wrestlemania vs Goldberg would write itself at this point and maybe even a Brock match. Hell Riddle could have a confrontation (if not a match) vs Booker T. I am not a fan of wrestling in bare feet. I just go back to what happened to Rusev awhile back which was unfortunate.

Re: Adam Cole & Matt Riddle = STARS

They wanted to have a really hot opener or a really hot "epic" match and they were too eager with it. The Cody/Guevara match had moments like that too, like "Really" moments in it where too big of moves weren't being sold, weren't being allowed to breathe, etc. Many matches are worked like this in the ring by the wreslers on the fly or agented out like this. Its just a flurry of move-move-move "gotta get all our shit in!" and it doesn't seem epic or awesome or anything, just seems hokey.

What I find overblown are all the pin attempts and kicking out of stuff that realistically shouldn't be kicked out of.
There's a sequence in WWE's official preview/synopsis of the match where Matt Riddle...

1. Hits Adam Cole with a Go to Sleep
2. Grabs Adam Cole and Powerbombs him, maintaining the hold.
3. Adam Cole cooperates a bit with Riddle to get put in a position to get plastered in the face with a knee shot
4. Riddle immediately goes top rope and does a signature looking twisted senton variant that is called "The Bro-Ton" or the Twisted Broseph or something, i didn't really catch the name.
But its clear that this is a signature or finish too and he's got to have beaten some people with it.
Good thing Ranallo was here to tell me "Riddle didn't get all of it!" as if he needs to get all of it after plastering a guy in the face with his knee twice and powerbombing him!
I'm just like, "Oh no, don't tell me Cole is gonna kick out of all that shit!"
AND HE KICKS OUT. HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT. SO FUCKIN' EPIC AND AWESOME, BRO! FIGHT FOREVER!





That sequence happens in the first 80 seconds of the video and its not the finish!

"How is that not the finish?" is my number one question when I watch contemporary wrestling.
