What?

the botched finish looked like Becky got the wind knocked out of her from Emma's diving crossbody into the bottom buckle and was out of it for a split second and didn't catch the first count.  There was nothing the ref could do there but count.  You could catch the ref telling her "it happens" afterwards

Charlotte managed to salvage the post match

Wrong ending but Emma could use the win more than Charlotte can.

They announced that the London leg of the UK tour is going to be the last Takeover special of the year.  That crowd should be molten.

Without giving away my sources, a buddy of mine said there is a rumor that the Young Bucks may come in to do a match in the tag team tournament. He swears he's not pulling my leg and he knows some people, but this is one of those things I'll hold with a grain of salt.

But that would be the greatest thing to ever happen in NXT if it did.

That'd be pretty cool if true. I wonder if they'd just be treated like a throwaway jobber team though. If it's "one match" then probably so.

I feel like the American Wolves got a decent showing when they had their tryout.  Bucks seemed more open to NXT once Owens got on TV and made an impact.  Would be cool for them to get a showing but I thought the whole tournament was already laid out as I think at least first round wrapped at last tapings.

I had a feeling Eva Marie was the type of woman to just lay there. Tonight confirmed it.
Of course cage matches work.  If they didn't work, everybody would still be in the cage.

That was a pretty awful botch by Eva, like an inexcusable one. All she had to do was get a shoulder up. I really want to give Eva a chance but man, she's not making it easy.

Me on Twitter: "Somehow Eva Marie has gotten worse."
Some random due replying: "You're implying she was good to begin with."
Me: "No, I'm saying I didn't think she could possibly get worse."

Is she blowing Vince and/or Kevin Dunn? That's literally the only explanation I have for her to be wasting roster space at this point.

--These are the brackets in the NXT Dusty Rhodes tag team tournament

    Samoa Joe & Finn Balor vs. Lucha Dragons
    Enzo Amore & Big Cass vs. Angelo Dawkins & Sawyer Fulton
    Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder vs. Tucker Knight & Elias Samson
    Blake & Murphy vs. Vaudevillains
    Mojo Rawley & Zack Ryder vs. Marcus Louis & Alexander Wolfe
    Jason Jordan & Chad Gable vs. Solomon Crowe & Neville
    Rhyno & Baron Corbin vs. The Ascension
    Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa vs. Tyler Breeze & Bull Dempsey

Tyler Breeze & Bull is a hilarious mismatched team......

I could see Gargano & Ciampa win if they're coming in on contracts.  Balor & Joe are obviously the strongest team on paper.  I'd like to see Jordan and Gable get a good run in this.  Not sure if the matchups in that order are the actual brackets

Ciampa's the current "big indy guy" I could see most likely making a decent career in WWE. He's much more character than wrestler, which isn't to say that he's bad but he's not on the same tier of the usual indy darlings in terms of pure match quality. He's definitely one of the better punch/kick guys on the indies, though, and he can work both as a heel and a face with relative ease.

Which means they'll sign him, call him Tony Carmine, and make him a generic mobster type after he makes a name for himself as the wild brawler in NXT.
Maybe the real deep state was the friends we made along the way.

Nah, Vince'll stick the belt on Eva Marie to "prove" that she's improved, and then Kana'll kick HER head off.

Hopefully.

I'm sure he does have a say so, since NXT is kinda his baby, but Vince probably sees her on Total Divas doing the whole training with Kendrick thing, and wants to give her the whole "redemption" story line.  That's just what I've heard, so take it with a huge grain of salt.  Personally, I'd be perfectly happy if I never see her again, and let women who have a shred of athletic ability and timing do the wrestling.

For some reason I found myself watching Takeover: Fatal 4 Way the other day.  It was shocking to me that that show was only a year ago.  It also bummed me out all over again that Tyson Kidd is hurt.

How is she at bumping/selling? I only watch the Takeovers and keep tabs on the weekly shows, but if she's halfway decent at taking a shitkicking then all they need to do is pull a Mikey Whipwreck with her.

She bumps like she's scared of it.  And she runs the ropes like she's scared of them.  She "hit" a running senton by jumping over her opponent and sitting down next to her.

She's also using a sliced bread as a finisher and can't do the flip without her opponent helping her, and she needs to talk to John Cena about kicking out at 2.

Any chance Vince realizes how terrible she is? Or loses interest? 

I'd say number 2 is more likely.

But since the fans are booing the shit out of her I can picture Vince flipping out and saying "Dammit! You'll accept her! I'll tell you what you like! "
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

After watching some more Kana matches, I don't know if I get a fear boner or regular boner from her. She works stiff as hell, which probably won't fly since they won't want her accidentally smashing Brie's nose with her kicks, but she does seem to understand the presentation aspects of wrestling (kabuki masks, face paint, etc.). Personally, I'd love to see her as the female member of the Balor Club that Finn sics on the Divas and then laughs riotously as she MDKs them.

The main event of Takeover is....

Sasha vs. Bayley in a 30-minute Iron Woman match

Even though HHH just announced it on Twitter, I'll use the tag here.  Edit: Fuck it, the NXT Twitter account and Sasha retweeted it so the tag doesn't matter.

Hot damn.

Maybe this means Finn and Joe make the finals and their loss is the impetus for a title program.  Joe/Finn vs. Jordan/Gable would be a hell of a match.

Not to go too crazy into spoilers since I'm judging this by a picture I saw from the tapings, but it looks like the first person to get their head kicked in by KANA will be Emma and/or Dana Brooke.

I do like how with one match they turned this next Takeover from "Well the tag tourney finals should be good but there not much else to look forward to" to "October 7th needs to come right fucking now".

I'll bet this is also a bone thrown to the Full Sail crowd after Owens pulled their nuts off before Brooklyn.

So the Dusty Classic semis AND finals are at Takeover.  Along with Bayley/Sasha that's actually a pretty solid show.  Just throw in a couple more undercard matches to fill it out

One of the best things I've read awhile back was about how Sashas character is a genuinely nice but insecure person. She realized she wasn't winning and started the whole Boss act to help push her emotions to the side and focus on wining. And despite being a "bad guy," has moments (after winning the belt in the 4 Way and embracing Charlotte, and the ending with the Horsewomen at Brooklyn) and promos like the one above where her real persona shines through.

When Becky turned heel to join her, they did some very nice touches for the long-time NXT (pre-Network) fan.  Because Sasha had been vanilla babyface that had this seduction to the dark side by Summer Rae, that led to her joining Summer to form the BFFs (who then recruited Charlotte and faded out of the picture when she started dancing with Fandango). 

They did a TON of little nods to that in the segments where Sasha did the same thing to Becky.

tl;dr NXT reminds me of all the things I love about wrestling and everything else can go to hell and die
