I wouldn't be surprised if TM61 pulls it off seeing they have been hyping their return.  I think AoP again or Sanity would be a waste as both will likely be headed to main roster post-Takeover.

Reports from the house show tonight are that Bobby Fish may have been hurt.  Details not out yet.

Spoiler: show
They're introducing a new title, the NXT North American Title which will be up for grabs in a 6-man ladder match (involving EC3) at Takeover.

Also, Gargano attacked Ciampa so we're on the way to that fireworks factory

Was looking at spoilers and Mustache Mountain was replaced by a makeshift team for Round 1 of the Dusty Classic.  Did I miss something?  Is someone hurt?

Seven worked a match later in the tapings.  Through some digging I saw Tyler hurt his knee on an indy show in the UK.  And this, his 21st birthday...  :'(

That ladder match is stacked. All the Takeovers deliver after the fact but I can't remember such a stacked card with the proper builds and all in years.

Spoiler: show
I'm not crazy about a new title being introduced but I guess with all the talent coming in, they needed something else for people to fight for who aren't in the main event scene. I'm going to go with Adam Cole as the victor with Riccochet as my second choice

I wonder if they are saving Gargano/Ciampa for the next Chicago Takeover. The symmetry is there and the Mania one seems pretty stacked already so they probably want that match to be the one to build the Chicago show around.  They only did one segment at the taping about it so it doesn't seem like they are in a hurry.

Spoiler: show
I get that but it also feels wrong to leave Johnny off the biggest show of the year.  Then again, it may be if Ciampa is clear to go or not.

I read that the winner of the tag match at Takeover also is considered the winner of the Dusty Classic.  So that makes it a bigger joke if Undisputed Era retains, AOP should be going main roster and they don't need Dunne/Roddy as tag champs.
  I feel they booked themselves in a corner unless they throw War Machine in as a surprise but even that is sucky to call a team not in a tournament the tournament winner.  Wonder if this was the plan for Mustache Mountain that was just derailed by the Bate injury but I doubt it.

Abbey Laith got released from her contract. Damn shame that they really didn't do anything with her but I guess it's just case of her being lost in the shuffle since so much talent has been added to women's division.

Upside is I get to see her again in Beyond soon presumably.

Don't know how true it is, but I was reading that she ended up rubbing people the wrong way and got a bad attitude backstage. It got to the point where even Ruby Riott, one of her good friends pre WWE started to distance herself from Laith.

According to Dave Meltzer, Bobby Fish underwent surgery today for minor tears in both his ACL and MCL. Fish is expected to miss around six months of action. Regarding the tag-team titles, it appears that Adam Cole will take Fish's place in the tag team title match at NXT Takeover: New Orleans and Undisputed Era won't be stripped of the titles.

I feel bad Ohno is just a job guy and won't ever get to main roster but someone has to do it and he could have it worse.

I am really curious about EC3's theme.  I loved his TNA theme so hopefully they come up with something cool.

Ohno is almost guaranteed to transition to being a coach at the performance center which will actually be a pretty sweet gig for him and his knowledge is amazing.

I'm happy they made sure to have his name in the lyrics in case anyone forgot who he was  ::)

I was always on the EC3 bandwagon, but I'm wondering how he works. He's great on the mic, but he's never been anything special in the ring, so working with some of the more talented NXT guys should be interesting.

Man, this dude is brilliant:

Quote
“I don’t like the word fan. Fan is short for ‘fanatic’. Everyone that follows The Dream is a supporter, more or less. Supporters, they’re where the heart is. They don’t need ‘merch’. They don’t need to show their affection by wearing a sandwich board on their bodies, logos. No, no, no… people who support the Dream are a little bit more sophisticated than that. All you have to do is say his name. Try it.”

Ciampa slowly ripping up that young girl's Gargano sign should be the new NXT intro from now on.

I almost feel like the match is too big for the Mania Takeover (even though it's Mania weekend and it'll still be the biggest match on the card). Build the ENTIRE Chicago Takeover around it and the serendipity of doing it in the same building the turn happened.

As much as I like how they are doing different things for backstage segments instead of the usual "Meet the GM in his office" trope, maybe don't keep doing them outside so the noise from the wind drowns out what someone is saying.

This might be the best Takeover since Dallas.  Certainly the one I've been most hyped for since then.

So, that groundbreaking news about the groundbreaking North American title to set up the groundbreaking ladder match at the groundbreaking Takeover was interesting. Did someone take out stock on the word groundbreaking? They used it like 30 times when talking about the new title.

I don't know if I've ever seen a crowd go so ape shit over a mediocre wrestler like that crowd did for EC3. It'll be fun when he's out wrestled by guys like Black, Dream, Cole, etc., and they still go crazy for him. And he needs to be a heel. He's not a good face.

The Takeover show has a very good card, but I'm getting more and more tired of the weekly show. It's 80% filler and one good match a week.

On the EC3 topic, he will definitely be a heel.  Bobby Roode first appeared in NXT the same way where they let the crowd be excited he was there and then just turned him into a bag of dicks.  Once Ethan is in the ring with all the workrate guys and does his schtick, he will be a heel.
