    I can't imagine the what the atmosphere would be like if this PPV event was happening in an arena with ten thousand live fans wathcing.

    Great ppv but imo the triple threat was the weakest match.

  3. Chris Kelly

    thought gargano v kushida was easily better than the men's tag match tbh. in fact, thought it was match of the night.

    NXT is better than AEW and any other WWE show combined. NXT never disappoints and always provides the best wrestling and storylines in the world.

    Balor/Dunne is easily my MOTY so far; such a treat to watch on a really solid show all round

    This might be an unpopular opinion, but I really don't like Raquel Gonzalez being the stereotypical "monster/beast" character. That whole character is just so overdone at this point, and like every wrestler that they book like that just doesn't have any further character. All Raquel's gimmick is, is "I'm big and strong." It's boring. And she's not even that much bigger than the other NXT women, hell she's the same size as Rhea. She's a shoot 6', which is what like 3-4" taller than most of the others? It just doesn't work well, it's a boring gimmick, and she honestly deserves a better character.

    Absolutely amazing card. Very possibly PPV of the year, will have to see. Felt like the only thing missing was Kushida taking the title but Gargano holding onto the belt for another little while and a future rematch between the two seems on the cards. I feel like Grizzled Young Veterans should've won but the former Rascalz only arrived in NXT so they need the win more. Hopefully they win the titles and hold them for some time. This match really put the classic in Dusty Classic. The triple threat match was outstanding. Can't tell if it or Balor and Dunne was MOTN, but I think Io shows why she deserves to be NXT women's champion as per usual. And honestly, a fantastic opener, with plenty of storyline implications. This felt like what the Tag Titles across all of WWE should feel like. Kai was excellent. Moon was brilliant. Blackheart was amazing and Gonzalez just shined. And that final scene of the night. UE finally splitting up and I imagine that we may well be getting a triple threat for the #1 contendership between Cole, O'Reilly and Strong. With strong being the sort of can we not sort this out. A+ show the whole way through, absolutely amazing.

    What you guys think of Rock taking a page out of the Big Bang Theory, and starting a tv series about his life as a youngster.... (Young Rock, coming after Young Sheldon, I do not believe was a coincidence.) That doesn’t matter though, who thinks it will be a successful show? Pretty sure Dwayne plays Rocky Johnson again, like he did in “That 70’s Show’s” wrestling episode. Sorry, if the Brits here don’t understand some of the American sitcom references, but just wanna know if anyone else has watched the commercial, and has a comment about it.

    Bobsyagod9 days ago

    I think we need to redefine what a kickoutfest is when the match centers around submissions. With all that was done to his arm and how long he was in armbars/hoverboard lock, it was getting a bit ridiculous that Johnny never tapped. Nearly every other time Kushida properly locks it in it's a quick tap, but just like kicking out of multiple finishers, not tapping out to multiple long submission finishers gets a bit unbelievable. Which is the only downside because otherwise it was an amazing match

    Pete Dunne vs Balor & the women's triple threat stole the show. MSK vs GYV was amazing as well. In fact, every match was great. It was an overall fantastic show.

    Two things, 1. I fucking love MSK,i love how to put away GYV wes lee hit the blockbuster from the top rope,like he needed that bit more of power. 2.Kushida vs gargano was great,and i love how strong kushida looked

  19. Dark Hawk

    As I was watching Kushida and Gargano going at it, was I the only one who could absolutely hear "Proper techers!" in Tom's voice in the back of my head? Then again for Finn vs. Dunne. Such a good night of wrestling, and that storytelling at the end... Chef's kisses all around

  20. Carter Baumgartner

    davesaves110 days ago

    Wade Barrett mentioned on the NXT prior that Adam Cole was such an exceptional leader for supporting Kyle O'Reilly as he went for the title, that other leaders would get jealous. It was so innocuous a comment but it stuck in my head. In hindsight it was either a bit of luck or a genius set up for the way the show went off air.

  22. Michael Glütton

    Well both NXT and AEW will die, they are not shows meant to pull in high number of viewers. Frankly I am glad that NXT goes against AEW so they would let each other to even lower numbers.

    The Tricean10 days ago

    Dunne and Balor was the best thing on that show.

  38. A Bit of Everything

    A Bit of Everything10 days ago

    There were parts of the opening tag-match where the heel/face dynamic was definitely reversed, which made it an odd watch. Another bit that made me cringe was when the ref stopped counting on Raquel when Dakota was in the ring, but then counted the pin on Shotzi despite BOTH opponents pinning her. Match was good though. Other points -: ◙ GYV not winning pissed me off. ◙ Am I the only one now getting tired of the Gargano Formula? ◙ Wanted Mercedes to win the title. I do think Io is amazing, but want her to move on from the title picture. ◙ Excellent main-event. ◙ Cole's turn was interesting because it didn't seem like a full-blown heel turn. Came across more as frustration at Balor slowly taking Kyle away from UE business, then further frustration with Kyle (like brothers falling out), so I'm excited to see where it goes from here. Roderick Strong was excellent here with his reaction and we're left wondering where Bobby Fish's loyalty will lie when he returns. Ace stuff all round. ◙ I love the elevated ramp entrance and hope they keep it going forward. It gives so many more options for the wrestlers to work into their matches. Great recap from Tom in the video.

    Ever since AEW's creation there's been this impression that NXT has been putting out an inferior product, not just in comparison to other promotions but also suggesting the products slowing down since say the 2015-2018 run. Personally I think the product is one of the strongest it's been in years, especially TV wise, and people's focus on the ratings are criminally undermining the great work the NXT superstars have been putting in, especially considering the pandemic era of wrestling we're going through.

    Mundane is watching a 70 year old Sting try to wrestle. AEW is so bad I can’t even watch it during NXT commercial breaks.

  43. Robin0928

    Robin09289 days ago

    The worst part of NXT at the moment is that we don't have the Full Sail crowd. The Thunderdome works so well for Raw, Smackdown, and PPVs, but the CwC concept, while cool as hell, just cannot replace a hot Full Sail or Takeover crowd. Just the perfect blend of smarks and general wrestling fans who have come together with the sole purpose of celebrating how fucking rad the show they are watching is and how fucking great the performers in the ring are. If this had happened at a normal TakeOver Crowd (or just with a Full Sail crowd), this would be in contention for best TakeOver in history. Man I just miss NXT having a crowd.

  44. Darklocks Jaw Ji

    Darklocks Jaw Ji10 days ago

    NXT lacks the low points that AEW has (less choreographed matches, no terrible gimmicks, no bad comedy segments), but it feels more mundane than AEW most weeks I think. And I think it is held back by the knowledge that any wrestler might get called up at anytime. But I think NXT should not be compared with other companies as it is simply a developmental brand, even at its peak OVW was not broadcast nationwide like NXT is.

    I think Gargano vs. Kushida was match of the night for me. So glad to see Johnny Takeover get him over. Also I think Cole will battle Balor for UE control before getting called up and Balor becomes their new leader in a reverse of the Bullet Club story.

    Strong was so confused he just stood there but I loved his reaction. I really thought that O"Reilly would turn on Undisputed Era from way before when he started doing matches alone with Finn Balor. Never thought it would be Adam Cole.

    Just finished watching it and have to say I enjoyed it all. Didn't watch all of the mens tag match so can't comment on that but overall a very good show. Really liked finn selling the fingers by not fully pointing after the match but then he was fine doing it right at the end which took away from it slightly

  57. Noah Turtle

    Noah Turtle10 days ago

    I’m calling it early This is my ppv of the year so far Balor vs Dunne is my match of the year so far The Cole betrayal is definitely shocking/heartbreaking moment of the year But it’ll change, and all of those will go to AEW by the time the year is over, that’s kinda how it goes 👍🏻

    after the triangle choke was a piece of mastery, everyone in the ring is acting as if something unplanned had happened. Finn looks like he was legitimately choked out by mistake, it looks like the match is about to be called off a doctor's coming down even pete dunne looks professionally concerned... but then pete shrugs, snarls like he does and launches in with a kick and it's absolutely awesome. They played it so well. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire match. Those touches that are so overlooked.

    I'm kinda sad that the Amazing match at the end is being so overlooked, it had genuine magic moments, some very unique bits, the worked weak leg during the attempted back flip evasion followed by the drop kick to the knee... I don't even know what to say, everyone's talking about this promo bit when they should be talking about the brilliance of the match that came before it.

  64. Sage_ Justice138

    Sage_ Justice13810 days ago

    Only match that I wasn’t the biggest fan of the result was the Women’s Dusty Classic. The psychology of a Kai/Gonzalez vs Baszler/Jax doesn’t work for me as much as Moon/Blackheart. Maybe they get the belts off Jax/Baszler, but not sure who that is right now because Lana/Naomi don’t do it for me either as a team.

    The first match was my fav match of the show. They went all out to impress Dakota put in the performance of her life and took some gnarly bumps. The tower of doom cross body to the floor outside. I cringed soooo hard for that one and Tom didnt even mention it. Got a real babyface vibe from Dakota this match. She was full of that babyface fire and grit. Raquel just played clean up. Toni storm wins for the new fingerpoke of doom.

    @Bird Gang Oh I am sorry to see that the truth hurts you so much. I don't see matches as standalone things and in every match they do some bullcrap. Let's talk about Omega, why does he have to get all his moves in? Why does he make stupid faces? He makes it seem like he just wants cheers for his athleticism instead of actually moving a storyline forward or making a match feel like people having actual feud.

    Best takeover of the pandemic era. I wouldn't say it's one of the best takeovers ever but it was pretty good. I guess Adam Cole is going to the main roster after wrestlemania. There's nothing left for him to do in NXT. He's done everything. It's time for him to go to raw and feud with AJ

    Patrick Stone10 days ago

    Fucking fantastic show this. I thought we had 4 amazing matches and a bloody fun one. My MOTN was probably the men's dusty cup final but honestly it could've been one of 3. I adored the UE turn (as sad as it is). They've been setting up Kyle to go solo and shine properly for months now, they've been building the ructions in UE very subtly for months, they've been teasing the idea of Cole turning on Kyle for months, having Kyle feel like the new leader of UE for a little bit now makes perfect sense now that we've seen Cole turn, Roddy being conflicted, agreeing with Kyle but wanting to back his friend who made him a big player in NXT. I also love the possibility that this could lead to Kyle taking over UE and Balor joining to replace Cole (who will be going up to main roster after Kyle beats him on takeover). Show of the year so far for me. Women's dusty cup: A NA Championship match: A+ Men's Dusty Cup match: A+ NXT Women's championship triple threat match: B+ NXT Championship match: A+ The classic NXT bait and switch ending: A++ Overall (if it wasn't obvious): A+

    Whilst I like MSK winning...I would've liked GYV to win it again

    I agree with everything Tom said except the kashida thing The dude's been in the NXT for 2 years now I didn't even know he been in the next 2 years I thought he only been there a year even after 2 years and he's never won a major match He's done all these pay-per-view matches and he's like oh for f****** eight or some s*** like that dude I'm not taking Dude as a credible threat and I'm a damn dumb hard wrestling fan so I can imagine somebody that's a casual look at this going to be like well he's never won

    Women’s Tag Match: B. A few sloppy moments here and there and the ref completely ignoring the assisted pin at the end made no sense. But it was a ton of fun, Shotzi and Dakota took some amazing bumps. Raquel looked like a beast. And I DESPERATELY hope they win the tag belts as well. Gargano vs. KUSHIDA: A-. Great match, but the wrong guy won. This was the time to crown a new top star. Also IDK how they do cowardly heel Johnny after this. The guy was basically Superman in this match. Men’s Tag match: A+. Just freaking awesome and MSK getting the rocked strapped to them. Women’s Title Match: B-. It was shorter than I was expecting and the finish was again wonky due to some questionable refereeing. But still a lot of fun and that finish leaves open a possible Io vs. Toni one on one match later perhaps. Main Event: A+. Freaking fantastic match. It reminded me of those Angle vs. Benoit classics. NXT Finn is on fire and Dunne is future champ material for sure. Only iffy part was the ref basically screwing Dunne out of winning at one point, but that’s neither wrestler’s fault. Ending Segment: A+. This needed to happen. Cole really is HBK Jr and KOR looks like an even bigger babyface now. Overall rating for the show: A-.

    I personally would have given the NA title match an A+, the men’s dusty classic an A, and the triple threat a B or a B-. Other than that, I agree.

  127. john asshat

    john asshat10 days ago

    Fully agree. Thought the NA title match was 5 stars. Triple threat was the worst match on the card and it was decent.

  128. Your Friendly Neighborhood Smark

    I’d give the Gargano Kushida match an A+, I’d give to women’s triple threat match a B+, and I’d give everything else an A to be honest.

    - Kai and Gonzalez were the right choice for the winners of women's Dusty Cup, hoping they become the WWE women's tag champs later. - Gargano Vs KUSHIDA was freaking phenomenal. MOTY candidate for me. I hope KUSHIDA gets a rematch and wins the title then. Gargano CAN'T be booked as a chicken heel now given now that he won this brilliant match CLEAN. - MSK Vs GYV was absolutely great. Very good match. But it's sad that GYV lost 2 finals in a row in the Dusty Cup. - Io Vs Storm Vs Martinez was average for me. It was totally affected because of the table breaking on its own. It would have been great if that spot hadn't happened. But Shirai winning was the right choice. - Dunne Vs Bálor was brilliant as well. Dunne just decimating Bálor's fingers was awesome. Finn targeting Pete's knee was awesome and Dunne's selling at his injury was so good. - The post match angle..... was Undisputed. Sorry, but these puns are gonna be there for some time. I didn't expect Adam kicking O' Reilly and strong just standing there not knowing what to do was very good. His reaction was priceless. But seriously, FUCK YOU ADAM COLE, I was just going to order a UE shirt in a few days. But yeah, that was a brilliant cliff hanger. NXT played us with the last logo once again. Really looking forward to Wednesday. This storyline is about to bring the attention of all the people who were ' bored ' with NXT.
