This match reminds me so much of the Cesaro/Zayn match.

I definitely can see why people said this match was going to be divisive.

I was let down, but the writing was on the wall when they announced the Wrestlemania match. Raw needs a superbabyface more than NXT, anyway.
Of course cage matches work.  If they didn't work, everybody would still be in the cage.

NXT in Lowell, MA on April 21st!
Got my tickets! If any fellow TSMers are going to be there, please let me know so I can make sure to wear a disguise.

94% of Emma's heel tactics involve hair-pulling. They next woman they sign should get a pixie cut and hide it under a wig. #buysbuysbuys

So, has anyone else heard Andrew WK has allegedly been bulking up in preparation for an NXT shot? He's posted some selfies to Facebook lately and becoming a beast.

Riff Raff is also bulking up to become a pro wrestler.

At very least, Riff Raff Vs Andrew WK might be a good match for UR Fights 2.

Hey ZZ of Tough Enough and the worst parts of Breaking Ground fame made his in-ring debut tonight.  Let's hear from his opponent, Christopher Girard:

They taped three weeks of TV at Axxess but nothing really jumped out to me.

Spoiler: show
Front runners to debut on main roster like Bayley, Joe and Enzo/Cass worked matches, though that doesn't really mean much.  Guess the biggest one was Joe being put over Apollo Crews clean, maybe Ciampa/Gargano beating Vaudevillians

Dillinger/Nakamura was awesome.  Shinsuke's "What the fuck is this guy's deal?" look at the ref was great.

And we almost saw Alexa Bliss do a chokeslam, which would have put her in the Hall of Fame of my heart right then and there.

It really was. It's a testament to just how fun Shinsuke is to watch that even a comparatively meaningless match like tonight's felt like something special.

Hyped for Enzo/Cass v. American Alpha next week.

More Alexa love (I gotta dig that thread up): her literally pulling Drake back into the ring to raise her hand after he'd already done it twice and Drake giving her a "U serious?" look.

They're doing it at the NXT house show in Orlando tonight.  I could see them at the next Takeover in a #1 contender's match though.

Two people I was going to go to the NXT show tomorrow night with had to drop out due to work schedules, so there's two tickets for section L (looks like first chunk of the balcony) for sale at cost, $43 each.

I think it makes it pretty apparent he's being called up for a Bullet Club reunion. Which I imagine will lead to a Finn/AJ feud which should be spectacular.

Thing is, who is the face in that? I think it would be a supremely dumb move to try to turn Finn heel as the fans are just going to cheer him anyway.

ME was fine for what it was, but the Joe/Nakamura showdown was too WWE-ish since it was all Nakamura. Balor really works great when you figure him as a modern day Sting instead of the OMG GREATEST EVER some hype him up to be, with his mannerisms and even his way of structuring a match fitting that mold greatly.

There was an entire row of "too smart for the room" fans behind me trying to make chants for everything. I made a Misawa joke during Ciampa/Aries and they didn't get it. Today's smarks ain't got shit on our generation.

All in all, it was a fine show.

I wasn't following NXT last year - did they tape from Axxess then, too? The crowds for these episodes have been so dead that I have a hard time imagining that they'd ever do it again.

I don't recall them using Axxess last year because there wasn't a Takeover there last year (though they did highly touted house shows).

They did tape extra at Summerslam weekend last year in Brooklyn but it wasn't at Axxess or anything.  They filmed some matches prior to Takeover with other big acts to warm up the hot live crowd.

Last year they did a tournament that Itami won to get into the battle royal.  Its probably a mix of NXT fans and regular fans who have no idea who anyone is aside from Bayley and a few others.

They are taping TV leading to Takeover tomorrow.  I'm interested to see where they go with the card.  If Balor isn't there he's probably showing up Sunday.
