I’m a bit behind on the old reviews (I was on holiday, thanks for asking) and before I dive into World Tag League, it’s time to catch up with the only WWE worth watching. It doesn’t matter what’s on the card, NXT has yet to deliver an awful TakeOver, and it’s unlikely this will be the show to dampen that momentum.
The key to a great weekend of WWE is an NXT show. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve watched the Royal Rumble, but the lowest match on this card had me more excited than Kane vs Lesnar vs Strowman. TakeOvers are the best programming WWE produces and reviewing them is always a pleasure. Let’s dish out some stars.
War Games. It’s the one gimmick match that WWE hasn’t run into the ground. In fact, they haven’t touched it. Until now. After years of fans calling for it, it’s finally back. I’m not entirely sure if it was needed, but we’re getting it. Minor quibbles aside, NXT TakeOvers are always good and this one was no exception. Let’s dish out some stars.
NXT’s TakeOvers are always special. It doesn’t matter what the build is like or where it’s taking place, they deliver a combination of incredible in-ring action and exciting storyline moments. Whether it’s a big debut or titles changing hands, you know that something is going to go down. So, with all that in mind, let’s start throwing out some stars for NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 2017.
In recent months, I have been lax. Whereas in years gone by I have been a regular viewer of ROH, I have quite frankly just not had the time. It’s meant that I am woefully behind on the product and apart from occasionally reading show reports online, don’t quite know where they are at this point in 2016. However, this morning (because once again, UK time zones, etc. ) I caught up with ROH Global Wars, their latest partnership with New Japan Pro Wrestling.
