Asuka retains.  Damn.  I really thought it was time for Ember.  I don't know who the hell is left in the pipeline to take the belt off of her.....she's beaten all of the girls multiple times.

 

Maybe Nikki Cross with the help of Sanity?  Add some more gold to that stable

 

Another really good match.  4/4

 

That said, I was expecting McIntyre to win the NXT Championship........and I wasn't expecting all 3 titles to change hands

I think that was Asuka's best match in NXT. The drama in the last few minutes were awesome. Moon looked great in defeat.

Kari Sayn......when she's eventually in NXT (and I don't know any spoilers, but she should win the Classic) wouldn't be a bad pick either

The only person who can beat Asuka now in the person who is winning the Mae Young Classic. Ember Moon was the only one close to her level the way things have been.  Unless they decide to have her just take the title with her to RAW or Smackdown

Because somehow it was his fault that his wife went crazy.

Well, tbf, they released both of them IIRC

 

It's actually the best thing that could have happened for Drew, and he's said so himself.  He was young and immature and not ready for it when he came in, grew a big head quick, got knocked down a peg and was on the road to nowheresville

*shrugs at Adam Cole*

 

Really good Takeover, Main Event was the worst match and was by no means bad. Just an odd stylistic match.

Hell of a F'n show.  Every match was good-great, crowd was molten hot, great entrances, Code Orange rocked, and awesome ReDragon reunion, Cole debut.....and they 3 of them in cahoots

 

That might be the best Takeover yet......and it's the one I went into with the lowest expectations that I can remember

I thought the tope by Drew was dumb and then that finish happened. Indy at it's worst.

 

Could care less about ReDragon and Adam Cole is meh to me if he's not in PWG but at least they were over as fuck tonight so fans were happy.

Best show of the year? That was awesome! Like Dragon said, the main event was the worst match and it was still good.

So glad Wolfe got to show hat he deserves this spot in WWE. I knew he was better than what we've seen from him until now since I've already seen him on multiple occasions, but that was really impressive.

 

Aleister Black is AMAZING. At this point he's the one I look most forward to whenever I know he's on NXT.

 

Roode's title reign is over. Thankfully. I haven't really enjoyed one match of his. The one tonight wasn't bad, but still the worst of the night. Although Drew was in it, which is saying something.

 

Also, ma I the only one who finds it strange that Itami, the guy with the GTS (which is, especially in WWE, associated with Punk) now has a story where he keeps on demanding respect? After all, that is what Punk's big heel turn in 2012 was centered around.

This was probably Asuka's best title match to date (although I haven't seen the Last Woman Standing). So glad they got to have a proper finishing stretch.

I like Mauro and Nigel as a team.

 

I am really tired of the 3 man booth standard in the WWE. They don't have enough good announcers to make it work and it ruins the dynamic. The third guy rarely has a really good defined role. Like, what the fuck is Saxton out there for? It did kind of work for 205 Live when they had Aries but he had a defined role on the team. He was the expert that would chime in from time to time. But they rarely use the third man like that.

They were both awesome and I think it may be a toss up. 

 

Loved last night's match, best thing on the show.
