    Shame that the UK title is a dark match. Probably shown on the NXT afterwards? Looking forward to War Games the Women's 4 Way.

    What do you guys think of Drew leading NXT, and is anyone behind Almas getting a title shot?

    I wonder will the two rings be out for the full show or will they put up the second ring and cage during an intermission/backstage promo's.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_


    At a guess, the 2nd ring will be added during break/backstage promos. I'd imagine it'd be awkward with both rings.

    Not totally sold on Drew as the top guy but I like him well enough. Almas has had some great matches lately so I’ve no objection to him getting a shot.

    The women’s match seems set up for Peyton to win with Billie’s assistance. They’re overloaded with faces on the women’s side so they’ve more options if Peyton wins, especially if she’s cheating. Would like to see Ember or Nikki win otherwise.

    I'd assume the cage will be above the ring/rings before the war games match starts. I love the war games gimmick. Would they get the second ring up that quickly in a backstage promo ?

    Thought the Ohno match was on NXT next week. Must've misheard.

    I thought they might have the second ring set up since it would mean just having a big empty space for the rest of the show. But if it was set up, some people would get a pretty crappy view the whole show.

    And would think the Street Profits match would be on there as well since it's been getting more build than the random Ohno match

    Will Michael Buffer do the ring announcing for Wargames?

    I'm not really a fan of Drew, but I've no problem with him being NXT champion. I'm glad Almas is getting a title shot, think he's super talented. He was unlucky at the start not having a big fan base in the NXT crowd from before he arrived, and also not getting theme music that the crowd could sing along with. I'd love if they put that Dunne vs Gargano on the takeover card and make it a 3 hour show, that match could be incredible. I'm really looking forward to the show, it's a good card. Not that interested in war games, but I trust with it being on a takeover that it will be good.

    I can hardly believe I saw Pete Dunne, Aleister Black, and Killian Daine in Dolan's Warehouse in Limerick. Credit to OTT for bringing some great talent in for their shows and bringing more exposure to up-and-coming performers. It's still a weird feeling to see these guys on the Network.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,199 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7


    Drew is the right kind of guy to present as Champion. Might have won too quick, most get a rivalry to push them into challenging for the title.

    Not sure Roode or Strong were the right opponents for him. Its not exactly Joe and Balor or Owens and Zayn, Zayn and Cesaro.

    Needs that major opponent/hot rivalry though, even this Alamas bout seems off as Drew is also in a on off rivalry with Adam Cole.

    NXT have a great tag/Tornado Tag rules record so I think it could be great.

    I see Adam Cole got 7 staples after his match with Drew last night. Wonder if it'll affect his match


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,629 ✭✭✭Adiboo

    Yup. Thought it was the pipes knocking here in the house!

    How f'n cool is Aleistar Black?

    I think he may have the most potential of all in NXT at the moment.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    Velveteen stealing Rick Rude's gimmick

    Aleister Black tries too hard to be cool.

    The Velveteen Dream is effortless.
