I've just read last night's results on the main site, so the Zayn against Joe match was a draw, again! Eh? Are they planning a 3 way at Takeover: Dallas?

I got a real old school vibe from Zayn vs Joe. A great match it was, loved the slow pacing at the start, building and building... Joe threw some really fake looking punches but ill forgive him! But I'm kinda ehh on another draw finish. I'm all for creative finishes like that but to do two draws in consecutive matches I think is too much. Joe should've won this, perhaps in a semi screwey way like Sami passing out to the choke while held on to the rope without the ref (or Joe) seeing. Or even having the ref just award Joe the win in that double pin scenario. That would've created great heat.

It's a possibility, one that I think would be almost a certainty if this was the main WWE roster as a triple threat would be the easiest and laziest way to book the thing. While it could still happen, I don't see it as this sort of general laziness doesn't really fit with the booking that's common place in NXT. Although, to be fair, WWE has ppvs monthly whereas NXT generally has a lot more time to slowly build things up for their TakeOver specials. While WWE does get crap for rushed build and storylines, understandable to some degree, the ppvs are pretty much the bread & butter of the WWE Network. If the Network continues to grow and within, say, 3 to 5 years, and they routinely have subscribers in the 3 to 4 million range, then it's possible they could go the route of having less ppvs, but I doubt it.

If I had to guess, they'll go for some sort of match with Zayn and Joe that all but guarantees a winner. Maybe some sort of street fight, possibly a cage match, maybe 2 out of 3 falls, falls count anywhere, etc..

So I watched this week's NxT which had only one match which was Samoa Joe VS Sami Zayn for the No.1 contender for Finn Balor's NxT Championship. After two ties, This match was made with the stipulation of 2 out of 3 falls match. Samoa Joe won the match by 2-1.

I really liked the chemistry between these two guys. Samoa Joe has been awesome since his heel turn and so is Sami Zayn after his return from injury. This match had more strikes than grapple moves which I liked. It made me feel like a very prestigiuos thing was on stake for these guys which is commendable.

Now hoping for good matches in form of Zayn/Nakamura & Balor/ Joe at TakeOver Dallas.

I enjoyed the match quite a bit, I'm not surprised it's gotten some complaints from fans who've called it a terrible match because it wasn't as high octane and up tempo as many of Zayn's matches are. I thought the match had great storytelling and I also enjoy a nice grappling session now and again; besides, the guys had to pace themselves as they wrestled for about 45 minutes and would have gotten gassed less than halfway into the match had they gone balls out.

Last week's featured a rematch between Asuka and Emma.

It was really a very good match. Asuka is very good at in-ring work. I didn't like Emma in her main roster run along with Santino but she is fun to watch in NxT with Dana and now on main roster too. Emma's match with Paige for the inaugral NxT Women Title was very good too. Emma has been an underrated wrestler.

Coming back to the match, it was refreshing to see someone dominate Asuka for sometime. Dana's heel assists were fun too. The bunch of moves Asuka performs is fascinating.

Looking forward to Asuka VS Bayley at the ppv while also hoping a good run for Emma on the main roster.

I meant to post my thoughts on the show a week ago but it's been a busy week and I wanted to allow time to sit down and watch the content on the WWE Network in order to provide thoughts not only from being there in person but also still addressing my thoughts on the matches as viewed on The WWE Network. Anyway, here we go.


NXT Takeover Dallas

This was my first time to attend an NXT event in person so I was really excited. The first thing I did was look for merchandise and programs. I found the Wrestlemania program before finding an NXT one and they only took cash so I had to go find an ATM Machine since I never carry cash on me, and took out enough to get the Wrestlemania program with a little extra left over. That extra ended up being just enough to buy the NXT program that they began selling to people in line as guys began walking down the hall with them instead of being set up at a booth for sale like the Wrestlemania program was. Bought both, that worked out nicely. Then I was standing in line for what seemed like an eternity. Got to meet a few cool people in line, talked about where we were from and what matches we were looking forward to. At one point when I was in line a backstage interviewer showed up with camera people to do one of those spots of the exctied crowd during the pre-show. The line started moving before she began filming though. Once I got inside the arena I bought a bottle of water, found my seat, and got ready for what was to come.


Manny Andrade VS Christopher Girard
This was a dark match that started out the evening. Nothing special. An ok start for being the first thing anyone there saw.

Apollo Crews VS Elias Samson
This should have been on the main card, however I understand taping for an upcoming NXT episode. Man, the crowd HATED Elias Samson. Thunderous boo's for him.

American Alpha VS The Revival (NXT Tag Team Championship)
Now we're on the main show. Great reaction from the fans for American Alpha. This match was a fun one and a really good choice for opening the show. The right call was made in who won and there's nothing I would change about it other than that botch.... The "Which one's Dawson, which one's Dash?" chant was a good one.

Austin Aries VS Baron Corbin
Arguably the worst match of the night if you disregard the pre-show match and the NXt taping match. On a show with a quality like the NXT Takeovers all have had, you rarely see a bad match though. This wasn't bad, it just happened to be on a show full of better matches. There were some dueling chants. Glad that Aries won, some may have thought that Corbin should have, but he ended up finding an even bigger moment at Wrestlemania.

Sami Zayn VS Shinsuke Nakamura
WHAT. A. MATCH. Goodness, this was brilliant. Both guys got great reactions, with Nakamura having the top reaction of the night. I have literally nothing bad to say here. It's the match of the year candidate so far and blew everything else from the rest of the weekend out of the water. The fans at one point chanted "Fight forever!" and I couldn't agree more. I'm lucky to have been there to see it for myself in person.

Asuka VS Bayley (NXT Womens Championship)
They had the nearly impossible task of following the Sami VS Nakamura match.... Considering that, they did a really good job here. I wasn't surprised by Asuka's win although it did seem to come out of nowhere in person, from the spot I was sitting in you couldn't tell Bayley passed out. The ending made a lot more sense when viewing on The WWE Network. During the entrances, before Bayley entered there were tons of guys in black suits up on the stage trying to get all the cherry blossoms from Asuka's entrance off the stage. It was funny looking.

I legit marked out when they showed Bobby Roode.

Finn Balor VS Samoa Joe (NXT Championship)
The top heel of the night? The referee from this match. The fans were furious at the constant stopping and some vulgar chants were heard. It did get frustrating after the first two stoppings, but when viewing this show on The WWE Network, it worked. This match felt more like a fight than a match and the stoppings helped in that capacity, unintentional or not. The entrance for Balor with the chainsaw was cool and the match saw some dueling chants. I wanted Balor to win although the guy sitting next to me did NOT. The moment the match ended he stormed out of the arena.

Overall Thoughts
There isn't all that much that I would change, truly. Maybe taping a couple of more matches for an upcoming NXT could have been cool, since both London and Brooklyn got more than one. With this being hyped as the biggest NXT event ever, it should have been as big as London and Brooklyn were with getting more matches whether they made the main card or not. Other than that it was about as good as it could possibly have been. All of the matches other than Aries VS Corbin were great, and even that wasn't bad. The best hands down was Sami VS Nakamura. If anything, that's what I predict this show will end up being remembered for. If you missed this show and haven't seen it yet, go watch it. Now.

Gable and Jordan continue to impress, loved their squash match this week. They're my favourite thing in NXT. Week in, week out they deliver. Seeing Gable's technical prowess and Jordan's power is such a winning combination.

I managed to watch American Alpha, Shinsuke Nakamura and Balor's promo after his match with Elias Samson this week.

First of all, American Alpha has me impressed very much. I have seen them before and love them as much as i love Cesaro. I insisted my father to watch this match. My father has always preferred wrestling over any other thing and he was pretty impressed with these guys too. These guys have the uniqueness to entertain with wrestling itself.

Sexondly, I now know why Nakamura is termed as Swagsuke instead of Shinsuke. And Shin should be saved only for Shinchan.
He really possesses an awesome swag which impressed me a lot. I loved his moveset too. It was the first time I saw him and he is just too great. Yeaaaooooohhh.

Thirdly, I really liked Balor's promo this week. He was far better than in the past in terms of mic work. The aggression and intensity was just great. Samoa Joe suits very well as a dominant badass heel. And there is no chance that Balor regains the title so we are on for a dominant Joe reign until he loses to Swagsuke.

The main thing that makes me tune into NxT is their capability to showcase any particular feud or match in the right amount of time. 1 hour never feels like too much in less time. Time management is great. Although the wrestlers play a great role in entertaining, yet it is the time management that enhances the quality of wrestling. And Graves is great too at commentary.

Man I love NXT so much... Consistently entertained week after week! Gargano and Ciampa I think are good in ring but are a little bland look and character wise. I can remember Gargano doing a horrendous promo so perhaps a heel turn or a mouthpiece is what they need?

The contract signing was excellent, seriously I have enjoyed every NXT title contract signing, I usually have hated them in other promotions haha. Here they're brief and entertaining.

I'm so happy Jax went over Bayley. I was actually sold on Bayley's injury, literally her every movement was so well done. And Jax won in such a great way. I'm also glad she took my advice about how she pins her opponents after the leg drop, looks way better than spinning around and doing a standard cover.

Where does Bayley go from here though I wonder? Does she still have a rematch with Asuka?
