this is like SD! 2 Know Your Role game. no matter what move you hit the dude just gets up and attacks you. fucking horrible.

back in the day wrestlers knew how do to this fast paced matches. they would do bunch of stuff but nothing really impactful. chain wrestling, running the ropes and leapfrogging, arm drags, rolling the guy up, throw some punches or a dropkick. shit like that. now its just big move, big move, big move and no sell everything. how the fuck is that good?

They draw less than 1 mil viewers on USA and with the WWE brand behind them. They're absolute nobodies.
Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns, hell STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN barely moved the needle. Nobody draws. That's a really lame metric for success in wrestling in 2019.

NXT are just trying to out-indy AEW with this match. Not a great strategy as AEW has more freedom to be just a little more hardcore and outshine NXT.

NXT works best when it hits that balance between storylines and in-ring action. Ciampa/Gargano (before the story disappeared up its own ass), Balor/KO. They will be able to compete here

Def was a good match all around. Honestly would love to have Cole and Riddle in AEW, but that's a long way from now.

Can someone explain their gimmicks/characters to me?
Riddle is a really poors mans RVD, pothead/laid back gimmick, except he doesn't have a fraction of the charisma or look RVD had. Cole is some random emaciated jabroni who randomly yells out boom and Adam Cole baby. I don't think that qualifies as a character, but that's the breakdown of his characteristics. Matt is a little better because at least he has some kind of character.

Cole is the lead man in his faction the big shit talker, who's slowly progressed from the chickenshit who hid behind his faction to help him obtain all his victories to a true leader who has to set the example for the faction by winning on his own. He's got a super underrated character arc.

Matt Riddle is literally a bro, a cool RVD esque guy with a legit background that can kick your ass.
