Welcome to NXT, coming to you via tape from Chicago! These matches were all recorded during the TakeOver: Chicago event, so get ready for some filler!

Highlights for Children!

We start things off with highlights from TakeOver: Chicago to start things off. The entire damn show was a highlight, so this goes on for a couple minutes. Great show that TakeOver: Chicago was. Probably the most solid wrestling show of 2017.

Sheamus vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Mark Henry vs. MVP vs. R-Truth vs. Randy Orton vs. Ted DiBiase Jr. (WWE Raw November 23, 2009)

The year is 2009 and we’re deep in the Guest Host Era of Raw. The week of Thanksgiving 2009, that host was former pro-grappler/announcer/governor, Jesse “The Body” Ventura. While a lot of the guest hosts were stupid as fuck, this one was actually alright, since Jesse Ventura had worked for the company for years and actually knew about wrestling.

The main event of the night was an Eight Man “Breakout” Battle Royal with the winner getting a shot at the World Heavyweight or WWE Championship. Jesse Ventura would call the action but before he got down to business, he brought out his old broadcast partner…the corpse of Gorilla Monsoon! Wait, no, he brought out Vince McMahon cosplaying as Bob Backlund.

The crowd starts chanting “SHAVE YOUR BACK!” at Dain. Audience participation I can appreciate. Dain does not shave his back, but instead hits some elbow drops.
