  • Registered Users Posts: 37,749 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Rumours the first NXT UK Takeover will be announced at this weekend's Liverpool tapings with the venue being the Echo Arena in Liverpool

    Deff consider the trip over

    I was watching this weekly and only realised this week there were 2 a week. Explains so much, like how I missed Jordan Devlin's debut match

    I honestly think they forgot how many episodes they'd recorded and are now trying to catch back up


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,749 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    On episode 5 myself

    Really enjoying it but some of the characters seem cartoonish (modfather, lingero)

    I wonder will it ever do tapings in Dublin ??. Obv not UK but we produce a lot of stars here and WWE are well aware of that

    Was at Birmingham, they tape 4 episodes each night. Heading to Liverpool tomorrow, looking forward to it again! Will definitely get takeover tickets if that's true.

    If I do get takeover tickets I hope Triple H appears in the ring as I always wanted to see him in person obv won't be competing

    Hotel rooms are cheap enough if it's in the Empress Ballroom for the 13th Jan

    Think fly into Liverpool or Manchester and get train too Blackpool ??

    Not sure I'll go not enough notice only a few weeks away

    Ugh, wish They'd call it something other than Takeover.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,749 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    It's actually Sat 12th Jan 2019 in the Empress Ballroom Blackpool


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,399 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    The card so far of the Takeover show, as per tonight's tapings.
    UK Championship
    Pete Dunne vs Joe Coffey

    UK Women's Championship
    Rhea Ripley vs Toni Storm

    UK Tag Championships
    Mustache Mountain vs Gallus

    Got to be honest, don't know everyone on the Uk show. Be very interesting to see if it can live up to it's US namesake.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,713 ✭✭✭Cianan2


    Gallus aren't in the tag match, they lost the semi to moustache mountain!

    The second semi final should be tonight, unfortunately I can't make it. Great atmosphere last night, the venue is very cool but the one thing I don't like about the tv taping is the hard camera was facing the entire crowd so everything the wrestlers were doing was toward a big screen and it just looked a bit weird but it's obviously for TV.

    Probably going to try get to Blackpool for the 12th, hopefully tickets aren't hard to get!


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,399 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Fixed your spoiler tag.

    My bad then, must have misread the match announcement.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,749 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009




  • Registered Users Posts: 23,103 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Finn vs Devlin in a surprise match on Takeover, just starting now. Should be cool.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,023 ✭✭✭seandotcomm


    some pop for balor


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,749 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Anyone want to give me the lowdown on what's happening on the brand before NXT Takeover Cardiff next Sat ?. Havent had time to watch the episodes weekly. Is Pete Dunne still top guy

    Will Dublin get a takeover or tapings in the future do u say???. Belfast more likely with been in the UK but they do easily do NXT Uk goes international


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,788 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Walter is champ and facing Tyler Bate.
    Kay Lee Ray is fighting Toni Storm for her title.
    Mark Andrews/Flash Morgan Webster vs Gallus vs the Grizzled Young Veterans for the tag titles
    Dave Mastiff is against Joe Coffey

    Also opens up the possibility of a Kings of Wrestling reunion.

    Or that’s the match


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,788 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Trent Seven or a debut?

    So this starts at 7pm with preshow at 630.
    So why was a big deal being made about being on the same day as AEW? Somehow, I doubt there were many torn about which to attend.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,635 ✭✭✭RollieFingers


    NJPW Royal Quest starts at 5.30 in London so it was probably more to do with that rather than AEW.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,788 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    First I heard that mentioned. Was all AEW when they first announced it.

    Anyway, I just half watch the weekly UK shows so not too worried about who wins.
    I'm sure Walter will win though

    Was probably just the one poster who supposedly didn't watch WWE but was obsessed with everything they did and would link anything they did to AEW. Just need to spend 60 seconds on twitter to find hundreds more like that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,788 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    That's what I mean. Triple H even addressed it at the time saying the arena was booked long ago and just waited til closer the time to announce

    What look like three great cards on paper either way, not a bad weekend to be a wrestling fan. Okada/Suzuki and KENTA/Ishii will be hard beat, but if Cesaro and Dunnes paths cross that match won't be far behind.
