    Just finished up watching it, it was a splendid show! 9/10

    - Itami vs Breeze was a solid match, I liked what they did here. Just let Itami hit the GTS already, dammit!

    - Blake & Murphy vs The Lucha Dragons for the NXT Tag Team Titles was quite alright. Dat double team Neckbreaker, tho! Blake & Murphy are really starting to grow on me.

    - I liked them hyping Solomon Crowe's debut for next week. Looking forward to that!

    - Finn Bálor vs Adrian Neville was awesome, I loved it! MOTN & MOTY candidate #2 from this show. Damn, every time I see Finn's entrance, it always gives me goosebumps, finn-tastic stuff, man! Also loved the new body paint. To be completely honest, I was a bit surprised Finn won, I was certainly pulling for him, but I thought they were going with Neville in order to do the rumored Neville vs Zayn vs Owens. Oh well, guess this was the official sign of Neville moving up soon. Can't wait for Bálor vs Owens and also Zayn getting added to the mix! This is gonna be dope!

    - Sasha Banks vs Bayley vs Becky Lynch vs Charlotte for the NXT Women's Championship was sooooo freakin' good! Definitely surprised Sasha got the win, but it's cool... Goodbye, Charlotte.

    - Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens for the NXT Title was dope! KO wins via TKO! MOTN & MOTY material, right there. Baw Gawd, they just Lesnar'd Owens, there was an avalanche of Powerbombs. A tad bit surprised they handed the title over to KO only two months after his debut, but that's cool with me. Holy fuckamole, Zayn/Owens/Bálor feud is gonna be fabulous!

    - Corbin vs Dempsey was garbage. Wait, this was a No DQ match? Hahahahaha. Way to troll, guys. Hopefully this boring feud is finally over. This shouldn't have been on the card at all, they could've easily given those 5 filler minutes of this match to the Neville/Bálor or to the Banks/Bayley/Becky/Charlotte match. But, oh well.
    • Agree Agree x 1
  3. Thanks for posting, I was able to catch it. So here goes...

    I'm going to give it a 9/10.

    Corbin vs Dempsey 4/10 - I just don't find the storyline that interesting. I'm sorry to any fans of that match.
    NXT Women's Championship Match 8/10 - A great match, they put in alot of effort and hung with the men in terms of quality. Lots of great moments, and one of the best diva's matches of 2015.
    Balor Vs Adrian - 9/10. - Fast, Intense, Out there. In many moments it almost seemed like the two of them were in sync with their moves which really caught my attention. The only word i can use to describe that match was awesome!
    Blake & Murphy vs The Lucha Dragons - 7/10 - Minus that botch that frightened me, I was okay with the match. It didn't keep my attention for that long, but that's mostly because i heard police sirens outside and was wondering what happened. It was very hard to focus. I'd like to see this feud go a little more extreme though.
    Hideo Vs Breeze - I am loving the hold for the GTS finisher. I have no idea why but everytime he goes to do it, I get excited but when someone escapes it i get even more excited, No idea why. I guess it's just the "When is it going to happen" sort of excitment rather then disappointment. It was a fun match to watch, alot of aggression shown by breeze, I would of loved to see more of a build up to this match then a backstage assault with him screaming "YOU SCREWED IT UP!". Please more story, NXT. 8/10
    Sami Zayn vs Kevin Owens
    I was talking to @RedDwarfTechy about this on steam, and he mentioned how it was sort of a Brock Lesnar type of beat down. After thinking it over, it really did seem like it. Sami's acting was gold, the match was a little heart wrenching, and it really brought an emotion factor. For a match so slow, it really caught my attention. 10/10

    Woop! For actually tuning into a show this time. @Trip in the Head will be so proud xD

  4. The Balor/Adrian match had me jumping up and down with all the near falls, no lie. And I'll say it again - Balor's entrance will be the new "undertaker" entrance IMO. You know, that one entrance that will bring people to a show just to see it in person. And it just gets more and more epic as time goes by.

    I wasn't at all surprised to see the titles that changed hands though. Maybe we'll finally see some new blood on the main roster soon.

  5. Agreed 100% because that's exactly what I thought when I saw the entrance both times and I was like yeah, this is the entrance that will break wrestlemania budgets like taker's does. (not complaining one bit)

    Thinking Charlotte is going to get the call soon, the way they hugged it out and what not.

    Zayn vs KO was such a weird match, and I use the word weird in the best of ways, I expected a solid back and forth but the beat down was just enough to make me go 'What? did they actually just do that?'

    MOTN was two fold for me, Balor and Neville as well as the Divas match imo was awesome.

    Tag titles match (lol Kalisto) and Bull Dempsey match.. well, one had a botch and the other had Bull Dempsey.. wait that's the same thing right?
    • Like Like x 1
  6. lol true that
  7. That was actually a feint by Kalisto. LOL - Him hanging out with Hunicara seems to have a bad influence on him.

    Bull Dempsey should be called Bland Dempsey and the crowd could also chant Bull[shit] whenever his music plays, haha.
    Baron Corbin's got nothing but a cool finisher. That's pretty much all of it about him.
  8. 7/10

    Breeze Vs Itami: I missed a good chunk of but I caught the end.
    Lucha Dragons Vs Blake and Murphy- Didn't really care about very much. Don't really get why B&M have the titles to be honest and I'm not invested in them at all.
    Dempsey Vs Corbin was so bland. I haven't really liked either of them all that much.
    Balor Vs Neville was awesome, really enjoyed the match. Kept me on the edge of my seat.
    Bayley Vs Becky Vs Charlotte Vs Sasha was pretty incredible. They put on an awesome match, I had no idea who to even root for, let alone who would win.
    Sami Zayn Vs Kevin Owens felt flat for most of the match. I wanted to be really into it, but just couldn't get that invested in it. The ending was a surprise, which I didn't entirely love. I get why they did it and it does leave it open for them to keep this feud playing out, but I'm still not entirely sold.
  9. NXT without Charlotte is going to suck balls. Emma And Paige flopped so hard when they were called up.

    Wish we could just have NXT as a show on it's on and have them appear on WWE pay per views every now and then.
  10. 8/10, Finn vs Adrian was awesome, the rest was pretty good except for Corbin vs Dempsey really.. Sasha Banks the new champ, interesting.. I wonder if that means we'll see Charlotte sooner rather than later on the main roster.
  11. Finn Balor is at least twice as powerful when he merges with the symbiote.
  12. I'm calling this a solid 7.5 outta 10.
    The opener was pretty fun and the pop for the feigned GTS was great. When he hits it the payoff will be pretty big. Also selfies sticks witb fur are always full of win.

    Bull bores me and I can't work out the attraction of Baron, he just doesn't look like a fit for his character.

    I just can't get into the Lucha Dragons for some reason, I'm a sucker for floppy shit too usually also. Blake and Murphy really remind me of the edgeheads also idk why but I'm not complaining though.

    Any who the MOTN has to be Neville and Balor, Finn's entrance was really done also.

    Divas impressed the hell out of me bar Charlotte who seemed to be off the pace IMO. Some of the suplex spots were entertaining. Who doesn't love a good suplex?

    Main event felt weird, good but weird. Owen's hitting the pumphandle shoulder breaker and cannon ball are always strong spots and Sami sold that concussion reallllly well. The brsinbustahhh tease was a nice touch also. The crowd made it feel better than the match actually was though IMO.
