    Would definitely bet on saying this show is happening as a reaction to Royal Quest happening in London the same day. Maybe not but considering the timing of the first UK tournament and the start of the brand proper being clear reactions to WOS, and them using NXT proper to counter program AEW, I find it hard to believe this isn't a reaction to another promotion too.

    They've a two hour TV show starting soon, no need for them to shoot their load this quick by having the match at a UK Takeover and could give the lads a proper TV feud.

    Cesaro is pure class.

    Pretty solid match

    Cheeky 'are you watching Vince McMahon chant' lol

    I wonder will we ever see NXT UK takeover Dublin in the 3arena ???. They could market it as first ever international NXT UK show

    Great main event

    I wonder will any of these guys ever make it to the main roster ???. Theres just something about them that would not feel right on Raw or SD

    Walter=Rusev II

    Good show overall not that I usually watch NXT UK.
    Enjoyed the Coffey and Mastiff match. Cesaro match with Dragunov was good as much as I was hoping for a different opponent.
    Women's championship was really good but kinda felt the ending was lacking just didn't have much impact.

    Walter/Bate was fantastic if not a big long.

    Walter is different planet in-ring to Rusev. He looks like a badass too that would rip your head off. Rusev looks like a cuddly toy.

    Can I just say Tyler bate is best in-ring wrestler on planet right now. This dude got the entire arena on their feet for a suplex. His psychology is amazing.

    Let's hope not, the main roster is absolutely bloated enough, without adding more bodies to the pile.

    Would Vince like someone of Tyler Bate's size doing all those impressive power moves to the likes of Roman, Drew, Braun etc?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,787 ✭✭✭Sirsok


    Tag Match was great, best match of the night for me

    Mastiff and Coffey up there

    Bate and Walter was Masterclass, but was a bit long. Still though nearly an hour, and the pace they kept was quite impressive.


  • Registered Users Posts: 242 ✭✭Ali Bomaye


    Walter v Bate did a great job holding my attention throughout considering it was so long.

    The 'Are you watching, Vince McMahon' chants are so hilariously stupid. They've paid to go to a show that's part of Vince's company to chant that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,785 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Triple H addressed the chants in the post show Q&A saying he sees all.



    Was wondering did Toni get injured or something from how the match ended.
    Also wasn't sure about the rope breaking being intentional or not. Think only one move was really affected so if it was accidental, they covered it well. Probably helped by the type of match it was. Ending was kinda strange though.
    I like Tyler Bate though not sure I like the Hulking up that he does. Seems weird to no-sell moves from Walter

    Tegan Nox debuting next week. Thought she would be on the US show


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,785 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy

    Robbie brookside or regal ? I mean they tape what once a month or two days a month to cover two months ? I doubt Tom Phillips is going over and calling it from the UK. You’d assume it’s done from the PC.

    I’ve watched it on the network kind of but the two episodes a week early on may have burnt fans out.

    I mainly watch the takeovers and see results of the tapings on social media

    I wonder how long this brand will actually last

    Well probably not but it depends how serious Kay lee Rays shoulder injury is. I know she wrestling tomorrow so you'd pressume she's cleared.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,711 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    The english and there Sundays . For some stuff it's an early start and finish


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,408 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Oh that hurt. Trent seven looks like one of the gibb brothers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,408 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Really good takeover so far. Really good women’s triple treat btw.


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 30,850 Mod ✭✭✭✭Insect Overlord


    Time for the Irish Ace.
