THE EXTREME HORSEMEN
It makes sense if Itami has asked for a release......which is my best guess as with WWE cutting costs and Itami being in his final year of contract it would be the perfect time to reset the NXT roster after Summerslam/Brooklyn III weekend.I agree that it's a big surprise just to drop Itami v Ohno like that.
I'm thinking they're selling the beatdown Hideo gave Ohno, and the latter will interfere at Takeover.TBH I can't say I'm a fan of this. Not the match. The match should be great.
But they did all that build up with Itami and Ohno which you would think would build to a Takeover match. Ohno is the main catalyst in Itami turning heel besides Itami losing, and now he's just getting dropped a month beforehand dropping the story to Black.
Now, Black deserves and should have a match on the card. But you could have done something different with him while still keeping Itami vs. Ohno.
Gargano vs Almas might very well be motn :mark: Roode/Mcintyre will be one of the worst matches on the card mark my words. It will be slowpaced and boringNot easily. There is an unannounced match that could give it a run.
Gargano vs Cien Almas
Not to mention Roode vs McIntyre could be very good as well.
