After the opening credits we head to Full Sail where Mauro gives us a run down of the matches we’ll see tonight. In addition Drew McIntyre and Andrade “Cien” Almas will sign a contract to make their championship match at TakeOver: Houston. Prepare to see a table get flipped over!

The show begins outside the Full Sail Arena. Sanity and security geeks are all laid out. People call for Regal who shows up and tells someone to get the medics as the unknown assailants run off into the night.

Inside the arena Percy Watson is like, “It must have been those ROH guys!” and Nigel McGuiness is like, “You don’t know that. It could have been anyone.” None of this matters though because the champ is here! Continue reading “NXT (August 30, 2017)”

NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III (August 19, 2017)

NXT_Takeover_Brooklyn_2017

Time for a wrestling show! Time for NXT TakeOver! We kick things off with a band called Code Orange rocking out live while some sort of video package for TakeOver plays. Code Orange is pretty good and I’ll probably check them out at some point in the future.

It’s a fine way to open the show since it’s different and doesn’t really fuck with the flow of the show the way musical performances in the middle of wrestling shows generally do.

We start things off with highlights of Ciampa turning on Gargano at TakeOver Chicago as well as Ciampa’s promo afterwards. I had forgotten how angry I was at Ciampa, but this video package did the trick and my hatred came rushing back. Johnny Gargano will be here tonight!

We also see footage from last week of sad Roderick Strong hugging his mom and his fiancee after his loss to Bobby Roode in his championship match.

No opening theme song video this week since we go right to Full Sail for action!

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.

Nikki Cross slides into the ring and then rolls out and then creeps over to where the ring announcer is sitting. Nikki Cross bends over and talks into the microphone the ring announcer lady is holding in her lap.

“Ruuuby. Ruuuuby. Come out and play…”

Ruby Riot comes out to play. She and Nikki Cross head to the ring and have a stare down before they get down to the business at hand and start brawling. They roll out of the ring and and are fighting on the floor when referees and security show up to pull them apart. The refs and security do not succeed.

Cross looks like she’s bleeding from the arm. Riot and Cross keep breaking free and brawling. Eventually the officials get things under control and they drag Nikki Cross to the back.

Welcome to NXT!

Cody Rhodes vs. Alex Riley vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Ezekiel Jackson vs. John Morrison vs. Justin Gabriel vs. Sheamus vs. Sin Cara vs. Ted DiBiase Jr. (WWE Raw September 26, 2011)

Remember when that time when everyone hated Triple H and he would come out and do long promos as a heel authority figure?  No, that other time…back in 2011.  This is a Ten Man Over the Top Battle Royal for the WWE Intercontinental Championship that Triple H set up because Cody Rhodes told Triple H he was bad at his job.

Of these ten men only Sheamus is still employed by the WWE, since the Sin Cara in this match was still the original Sin Cara at this point if I’m not mistaken.
