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.

This is a pretty solid concept: a PPV from a major wrestling company that solely features women’s wrestling matches. Unfortunately the company in question is TNA and they have a pretty poor track record with…well, pretty much all the things. Let’s get ready to fumble!!!!

Why is Chris Jericho writhing around on my screen? Is he back to being a cruiserweight? Oh this is just SmackDown Live overflow…this is a weird way to start the show. They show footage of Kevin Owens kicking the shit out of Jericho on SmackDown before Jericho is carted off by medics. Have fun on tour with Fozzy, Chris!

Welcome everyone to Monday Night Raw! This is a review of the very first episode of Monday Night Raw. Why? Because WWE had it up on YouTube in its entirety and I, for some unknown reason, decided to watch it. Let’s get to reviewing!

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.
We begin with a hype package for the match between Roderick Strong and Hideo Itami coming up later tonight before the opening credits. They’re making this match out to be a really big deal which is fantastic.

Everything must have a beginning, and this match here is Bill Goldberg’s…unless of course you count dark matches, which we don’t.
Goldberg’s Streak Count: 1
Why am I watching a random episode of Main Event? Because I heard Aleister Black shows up this week and I love me some heroic Satanic MMA inspired wrestle dudes. So let’s see what Velocity 2K17 has to offer beyond Aleister Black kicking dudes’ heads off!

Match 1: Killian Dain (w/ Eric Young) vs. Danny Burch
Danny Burch tries to fight Killian Dain at the bell, unloading with some strikes and kicks that Dain more or less shrugs off before he beats Burch down. He hits a slam and a running senton that lay out Burch.
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.
