toni-storm defeated rhea-ripley...14:50
a solid match between two beautiful women...rhea ripley
is basically a heavy metal aussie amazon...which impressed
me. i've only seen toni storm wrestle twice & i already think
she is a superstar...headbutts look brutal when women hit them...
rhea ripley has incredible shoulders...

pete-dunne defeated joe-coffey...34:15
an incredible main event that seemed a little botchy towards

Congratulations to the Velveteen Dream...I swear he gets
better with every match. I hope they change the belt strap
color to truly make it a...


It was a great match...it started slow but built momentum
& speed as it went on...and the finish was excellent.

It was TakeOver worthy in my opinion...for whatever that
is worth these days.

As far as Johnny Gargano goes...I don't even know what
to think or feel about the guy anymore...

I mean he's an amazing wrestler...but as a character...
the water is too murky for me now. I've always thought
"Tweeners" were bullshit.

Get off the fence & pick a side.

I'm completely over the main roster now...& I honestly
could not care less...but NXT is still great too watch on
a weekly basis.

Take care...

I'm off back to my new traps...

:P

This was brilliant. It is such a shame the story won't meet it's proper epic finale, but even if that is the end (until Ciampa returns), it was still a great moment.

Well before I talk about that Fatal 5 Way I must commend WWE for what they showed up earlier in the Show. Between them showing Ciampa's Surgery showing the sacrifice of what it takes being a Wrestler, to Bianca showing more of her bratty attitude towards Io and Kairi their was some good stuff all around in this Show. Just like Tony Nese it was the smart decision to make Cole the guy to face Gargano at NXT Takeover NY. Riddle vs Dream is a lock I feel, you saw them barely touch at times, Black and Ricochet will most likely be facing for the Tag Titles vs The War Raiders if they win the Dusty Classic, so Cole is the only guy who is going to be free for that spot. He didn't blow away anyone in this Match I felt, just enough, but enough to show his intelligence is a problem for anyone to deal with.

They made the best out of what was kinda a shitty situation and I think Cole vs Gargano will be an amazing match. Just please... For whoever loses... DON'T BOOK THEM INTO OBLIVION ON THE MAIN ROSTER!

You mean like talent like Ali who had so much momentum, then they put him on SD and he hasn't gotten the shine after Kofi got instead. I wonder when and if Johnny wins if he is a face or heel most likely a face since he's facing Cole. I wonder who will he face as Champion going forward with some top contenders on his heels or the Champion heels I mean.

Ali is not exactly booked bad per say. Just coming off a WWE Title match on a PPV after only 6 months on the show, you are doing decent. Just the injury derailed him and WWE basically has to capitalize on Kofi now or they are leaving money on the table. We will see in time how bad Ali has it.

And Gargano has turned face now. His moment after the Dusty Rhodes' tag classic loss, standing up to Ciampa was his turn. If Gargano is champion I can see him facing Dominik Dijakovic, maybe Punishment Martinez once they are built more. As well as Keith Lee, the loser of the NA Title match, but in all likelyhood, with all these NXT Call ups and the ones they will probably do after Wrestlemania, they drained NXT... And yet they still have way too many people.
