Ricochet/Dunne was another damn good match though a tad indy-riffic at times (especially on Ricochet's part).  Kinda amazed that Dunne's been champ for 450+ days.

The ending made sense too since Undisputed Era are those guys that see someone building a sand castle on the beach and decide to kick the hell out of it.  I wonder if War Games will be another 3 trios affair or will Fish be cleared to make it 4 v 4 against Dunne, Ricochet and War Raiders?

I believe so.  I FFed past that match because the Forgotten Sons do nothing for me.

Not a huge spoiler IMO, but they set up the Kairi/Baszler rematch for Evolution at the tapings tonight, which makes total sense.

I know it gets said often but I just love how NXT is laid out.  The Black thing was pure misfortune yet they've turned it into a way to get all of their stories either started or continued and I really dig it.  The bulk of the current story arcs are running through that night in the parking lot and accusations surrounding the events.

On a side note, as I am at the conclusion of the Sane-Borne match, even though they haven't done much with her, I dig Vanessa Borne and think she has a lot of upside.  The other funny thing is she used to be one of the Fox Sports Arizona girls that hyped up what twas going to be on Fox Sports during games, so kinda funny remembering that when you see her take a finisher or do something dastardly as a heel.

I'm watching this week's episode and just love how Regal is used on this show.  Whenever he shows up to the ring you know big stuff will get announced and I loved how he played dean to the Undisputed Era, completely blowing off their attempts at intimidation and laying down the fuckin' law. 

I still love that EC3, a guy whose theme brags about how he is in the 1%, is a face.

Agree with Regal being a great GM.  Still remember enjoying his transition to the role from color commentator to take over for JBL.  It will be a sad day when Regal is no longer NXT GM.

As for EC3, I think that is weird too and as much as I love him, he is a better heel but they did shift that the 1% isn't supposed to be financial 1% anymore but the Top 1% of the SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY.

And my, Kona Reeves is the NXT Ziggler taking the fall for all the new toys.  He had EC3 and now he is going to be the first mini-feud for Keith Lee. lol.

Love Main Event OTIS

That main event was awesome. I loved the finish. It looked like Ciampa had to damn near commit murder to beat him. The first DDT looked exceptionally brutal.

Lacey Evans is forming the in-ring chops to match her character ones which is a great development.  I also love how she beat Candice the same way Dream beat Johnny because the Garganos are apparently NXT's version of the McFly family.

Speaking of, Dream vs Ciampa for the title?  I'll allow it.

This Dream/Ciampa promo is glorious.

AND HERE'S NIKKI!  "AYE KNOW WAT YEW DAD!".  So glad she wasn't called up.  She's a focal part of the show without actually wrestling.

Another great episode this week.  Both the tag title match and Belair/Cross had non finishes but furthered the feuds.  They should just put Belair/Cross on Evolution because that show desperately needs matches.

Plus, Black is back and Nikki told her secret. 
Spoiler: show
The tapings imply but don't explicitly say that Gargano was the culprit, but the theory that it was actually Candice and we get a tag match with the Wrestlings vs. Cross and Black at Takeover is appealing to me.

Also, the War Games match is 4 v 4 with Dunne/Ricochet/War Raiders vs Undisputed Era.  That should be awesome.

Black fucking up the world backstage and stomping to the ring, then ending Lars with one kick was absolutely incredible.  I am really intrigued at where they go with Gargano now.  Does he get fucked up six ways from Sunday by Aleister and THAT finally snaps him out of it or does he align back with Ciampa and form Evil DIY?

In a year of awesome Takeovers, Takeover War Games could be the best one.  If they decide to move Ronda/The Man onto the card and lock them in War Games I'd be fine with that too.

Broken Johnny Wrestling's promo explaining why he attacked Black was great too.  Candice's segment?  Not so much.

In a year of awesome Takeovers, I might have to say Brooklyn IV might be my favorite top to bottom card. I think Gargano/Almas for the NXT title is the best match out of all of them but BK was a better event overall with NOLA not too far behind.

So much greatness on this week's episode:

- A pretty damn good TV match with Dakota Kai and Shayna Baszler.
- The Undisputed Era finding a new clubhouse in what looked like a shipping container.
- A Heavy Machinery video with copious amounts of steaks and/or weights.
- A fucking AWESOME ending segment with Ciampa, Gargano and Black where Ciampa manipulates the other two into a steel cage match versus each other for his amusement.

I love this fucking show.

"The following are the results from the NXT Live Event held in Green Bay on Friday night. There was an injury scare for Dakota Kai during her match. Fans in attendance report that Kai suffered some kind of leg/knee injury that that made her collapse in the corner of the ring. The referee stopped the match and checked on her before throwing up the X symbol indicating she needed medical attention from the staff in the back. She left and the match continued without her."

I completely understand Tyler Breeze's mindset when people tell him "You're getting wasted, bro" after this week's episode.  Dude can just waltz back into Full Sail, get a hero's welcome and wrestle Ricochet.

Also, the music was a bit much but if they're going to have Aleister Black cut promos, the one he did is probably what they should all be like.

EVIL DIY LIVES!  Luke finally joined the Emperor.

Also, that was not a great debut for Jessamyn and Shafir.  If they don't trust them to do anything but the most basic shit they probably  shouldn't do a Horsewomen v. Horsewomen match anytime soon.

Seriously. They're so green. Like celebrities doing a one-off match green. Do they even have the name value outside of Ronda to even warrant putting on tv? I'd never even heard of them until they put them in the crowd a few years back.

So Ciampa is aiming Gargano at the North American title to keep him occupied and distracted.  I'm down for a Gargano/Ricochet Takeover match.

That women's four way was kinda terrible.  It felt like nobody was on the same page at all.

I don't think Shayna Baszler gets enough credit for how good she's become as a complete package.  Really hope she is treated better than a Ronda lackey on thee main roster.

It's barely been a year, too.  I thought she was going to be a shit MMA gimmick that wouldn't make a Takeover, but she plays the bully role so well and has backed it up in the ring plenty of times.  In a perfect world she goes up and has a tremendous feud with Bayley (to put over how mean she can be) before doing a "In MMA you passed me, but here you're not in my league" feud with Ronda.

I agree.  I wasn't familiar with her before, wasn't super enthused with her during the original Mae Young Classic.  I figured the MMA gimmick but thought she'd get pushed hard enough to make Takeover whether the fans bought into her or not.  But she's worked hard and has become really good.  Love your fantasy booking as I think that would be an ideal way to make her a star.  Not sure how many resources they do give her on the main roster given her age, sadly.

She wrestled for a while in indies too, so people can't even bitch that she just waltzed in due to Ronda connections. I think she's a truly vicious, unlikable heel and there's not very many of those in the female divisions of the WWE.

Two matches announced for next week, which means they will be taped ahead of Takeover Phoenix:

Io/Kairi vs. Shafir/Duke
Street Profits vs. Forgotten Sons

These are both cases where I am excited to see the first team listed live only to be very indifferent to their opponents.  Had read that people were pretty impressed with Duke at the PC, so maybe she will turn around.  I do like Shayna way more than I did this time last year.

No clear answer, think the info is too fresh to know.  My guess is with all the callups, that is a surefire smark Dream Match to help sell and carry the card while also promoting another brand in their big stage.  I wouldn’t read anything into it other than what could be a really good match coming up.

Apparently Ciampa's injured again.  Fortunately, they've got a bunch of TV in the can so he can rest up for whatever he does at Takeover. 

This week's episode is another fucking banger, too.  #DIY RETURNS!
