Surprised there wasn't a thread for this already

 

Blood Orange live performance was an awesome start to the show and got an already hyped up crowd even more pumped

Yeah if you are going to do a live performance it is much better to do it while showing the WWE opening promos.  It gives it kind of a purpose.  One of the reasons why nobody bitches about live music during entrances like in WM but always when it is just a concert to kill clock

 

Man I can't believe how super over Gargano is.  He might get the biggest pop of the night.   

 

Not sure if Almas should have won but damn what a great finish throwing a DIY shirt at Gargano to distract him

Good opener by Gargano and Almas.  Loved the finish with Vega throwing a Ciampa shirt at Gargano

Man, Johnny is good, and I'm glad to see Almas finally finding something that feels right for him. That Gargano Escape near fall was dope, and the finish worked too.

I think we can retire any talking points about Almas not working well in NXT. Also, Gargano has gone from a guy I was completely out on before he went to the E, to a guy I thought was a much better tag worker then singles guy, to just really fucking good.

I admit I popped for the Aussie girls trying to schmooze Daniel in the GM box.

Figured Almas would win.  He's finally getting over and they're pushing him hard.  Gargano is the plucky underdog babyface who the crowd loves no matter what.  The loss doesn't hurt him, the finish was really creative, and because the crowd likes Almas it didn't kill them

Love Graves but a 4 man booth is tough.  So far so good

 

This match has been fun.  AOP has improved so much.  Creative spot with EY switching in before Dane entered the match officially

I was hoping for a tag team hoss battle, but I suppose it's more impressive visually to see AOP toss Eric around.

I was hoping that it would be like a live Freebird rule where they switch guys during the match but unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case. The rumors of Dain going to the main roster are becoming a little bit clearer

 

This is the best Wolfe has ever looked in NXT.  But he kind of has to be

I like it. Sanity couldn't match them 2 on 2, but Sanity 4 on 2 doing everything in there power worked perfectly.

HOLY SHIT IT IS REDRAGON   :D

 

They had to put these guys together given how stacked the singles division is.   They should be awesome together

Can't argue. Credit to Wolfe with a great performance, and the match told a great crazy story.
