That was really great - didn't live up to the ridiculous hype, but as Nakamura NXT matches go it was better than the one with Aries but didn't quite reach the bar set by the one with Zayn.

Nakamura's selective selling of the knee really bugged the hell out of me because that was pretty much Balor's entire plan of attack and it seemed like it didn't play into the match at all.  Really disappointed, to be honest.  I thought a rewatch would improve my opinion like the Aries match, but it didn't.

Takeover: Brooklyn II looks fucking awesome at least.

Spoiler debut!

Spoiler: show
Via Gerweck: Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Roode will make his official WWE NXT TV debut on the August 10th episode in an in-ring segment. Roode made his in-ring debut for NXT during the recent UK tour.

Roode appeared at tonight’s NXT TV tapings at Full Sail University and cut a promo, saying the wait is finally over and he is NXT. Roode started out cutting a babyface promo, saying he’s here to expand the brand and make it a global powerhouse. Roode went on to say that he will be featured on commercials, billboards and everywhere else as he will make NXT a better place. He said the NXT Arena will soon be filled by businessmen, Presidents and Vice Presidents, not loser fans. Roode declared himself a Superstar because he looks and acts like one, then said he is at the helm of the new NXT and from here on out, NXT will be glorious.

You should probably put your bandit hat on now.

Roode in WWE/NXT seems like such a better fit than he did in TNA.

"Listen to the hush that's fallen over the crowd."

The NXT audience is notorious for their respectful silence.
Of course cage matches work.  If they didn't work, everybody would still be in the cage.

So much for my hopes of a SaMOJOe tag team.

Good on Bayley for successfully demonstrating concern for a fellow wrestler, one of the strangest taboos of the WWE Universe.

I also love Bobby Roode's theme song.  I'd compare him more to Evolution HHH.  The good news is that he's more suited to play that role, as opposed to HHH never really having the foundation.  There's a difference between endless crotch chops and another guy riding a beer cooler to the ring.  I think Roode gets the rocket, however. 

I'm happy that NXT gets to work with the best talent TNA ever had.

I dunno if Brooklyn will be as good as Dallas, but they sure are building a card to rival it.  Apparently Ciampa/Gargano and the Revival have been tearing it up on house shows.

Does anyone think they could get the backdrop suplex as a finisher these days? Maybe Roode can do that.

Did they need to get Nakamura off TV for reasons I'm unaware of? I don't know what their end game is for setting up that he'll have to be sidelined for at least a month.

Great episode as they've established a TON of stories for an hour long (honestly only 50 or so minutes) show.  Hideo Itami is getting better by the week,  they did the "enemies become tag partners" a whole lot better than RAW did, Asuka and the Authors of Pain murdered people and Mandy Rose is Eva Marie if she actually knew what she was doing.

Takeover Toronto looks like another winner.
