    Seems to be another takeover people are sleeping on but some really exciting match ups for me

    I've learned not to judge based on the card. Previous ones only had 1 or 2 matches i was interested in but the majority of the show turned out well.

    For this one, i think Asuka/Ember and Black/Itami should be good. Could be the end of Asuka's reign.

    I personally am not a fan of Drew. I don't know what it is.

    Like most Takeover shows, stacked card with very little hype or build up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,027 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Can see Roderick Strong interfering in the title match and may be getting some DQ'ed

    Bit early for Drew too win the title imo

    The nxt crew were stuck in the airport in Florida for hours yesterday.

    A bit of a nod to Drew Mcintryes old WWE theme (Broken dreams) in the promo for the title match. He could be a big star if they believe in him and doesn't mess up like last time

    One of WWE's greatest themes.

    Great show so far


  • Registered Users Posts: 894 ✭✭✭cian68


    at 40 Bobby Fish's career could easily be winding down, glad to see him in this spot instead.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,027 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    I want Gangrel as Blacks manager


  • Registered Users Posts: 894 ✭✭✭cian68


    Really enjoyed Itami-Black. Seems to be splitting opinion on Twitter.

    Good match bit too slow paced for me


  • Registered Users Posts: 894 ✭✭✭cian68


    Asuka and Ember killed it. Not one dud on this show. Over to you Bobby


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,126 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    That was a great match. Ember's finisher is cool but such an odd looking setup.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    Great great show the main event has a lot to live up too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 894 ✭✭✭cian68


    Not doing the 'Adam Cole babay!' seems like a missed opportunity. Crowd would have sure gone with it and made him look major league. Still a fun angle and a great show with a main event I could nae really care about.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    I know people love him but Mauro is terrible and jr shouldn't be on commentary anymore but my god there is no words to describe Percy he adds nothing.

    Gargano/almas match of the night by far phenomanal

    I have no clue who the three at the end were so that ending is probably wasted a bit on me, . I gather they were ROH mainstays?

    Ember/Auska was brilliant at the end. That Auska is 500 days into a reign, and I was pleasantly surprised when she retained sass a testament to the storytelling and ability of both.

    Gargano/Almas was fantastic.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    Yea roh mainstays Kyle o Reilly and Bobby fish were a tag team mainly in roh and new japan were they were tag champs in both.

    Adam cole was in the bullet club former world was in a lot of big factions including with Kevin owens


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,553 ✭✭✭Blue_Dabadee


    It took soo many years to finally get ROH stable in WWE.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,901 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    They did Adam Cole BAYBAY after the event ended. It was fantastic.

    What are the chances of OAP getting called upto smackdown now they've dropped the belts and are behind the breezango craic


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,888 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    While watching Black's entrance followed by him sitting up in the ring with Itami's reaction, made me think of Taker.

    Great show overall. Surely throwing a tshirt or whatever it was is considered both outside interference and a foreign object? But it's Thea so all good. Gargano is an example of a guy who indie fans liked that has proved himself to people like me who didn't know him before NXT. There are other guys who are there or have moved up that haven't done the same.

    Was sure Ember had it won. I do think it's time to take the title off Asuka. Maybe the winner of the Mae Young tournament.

    The tag match was enjoyable. I really like Nikki. I'm never sure if the big smile is from playing the crazy character or just because she's enjoying herself so much. Was sure Eric adding himself to the match would be the reason they lose.

    Dunno about the 2 post match run ins. Cool to see, but the fact they were both for title changes makes me wonder how it will work. The title rematches have to happen. At least with the tag match both teams were attacked, so that will be a 3 way feud.
    Knew there was someone coming anyway with the crowd reaction and everyone looking the one direction.

    So how many of those fans actually know who these guys are and how many are just pretending?

    As for commentary, I don't know why they insist on 3 man teams on all the shows. And bringing Corey and JR out didn't help either.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,901 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    The crowd definitely knew who Adam Cole was.

    They roared his catchphrase back to him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,027 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    I didnt have a clue who the 3 guys were but figured there ex ROH guys. I though Adam Cole was Kassius Ohno lol. Hopefully there a cool stable

    AOP making there main roster debut vs Breezedango emm noooo but its WWE and Road Dogg at the end of the day and it makes perfect sense to them

    If they were to sign would Omega and Young bucks go to NXT ???


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,091 ✭✭✭The Ayatolla


    Is that Adam Cole feud realistic given he's about a foot shorter than Drew?

    205-live bound for these guys I expect (longer term anyway).
