The chemistry between Almas and Vega is awesome.  She is going to be a great manager if the WWE allows her to be

I think Drew is legit knocked out on that finish.   Either that or he is already setting up his heel turn like in EVOLVE

 

With all those false finishes I thought there was no way Almas would win

 

The transformation of Almas from the goofy babyface in a hat and suspenders to champions has been one of the best long term storylines in NXT.  If it actually was one.

I figure Drew is getting the call up, but he certainly seemed to be legit favoring that arm.

Half expecting Arn to start the War Games match just out of habit.

Also what are the odds that Adam Cole's cut from the other night accidently-on-purpose gets reopened?

Roderick strong in the Authors of Pain gear is very Kurt Angle in the Shield gear to me  :D

Watching on mute... I really like the team comes in idea rather than one guy from each team at a time... perhaps a random pick of the six would have been fun almost like EC. Looks good so far but the jump off the top of the cage spot onto everyone is going to be done... which sucks because the full effect just isn't there. This is a good start though and I love that there's two rings.

Starting to think that one of the reasons we didn't get a War games match is because Vince knew that the camera crew would completely miss things.  Not a good night for them 

 

And now it has turned into one of those TNA asylum matches with the weapons.  And the crowd fucking loves it

Man imagine how awful this would have been if decided to use Sawyer Fulton all the time  instead of  changing to Killian Dain

Watching Dain makes me want him to have a match against War Machine just to have a bearded fat guy clubber-off.

I think I figured out why they've never done this gimmick before: it's because WWE production can't figure out how to shoot a cage match with two rings. The amount of camera switching in this is giving me nausea.

These overplayed spots are just destroying the current product for me.

They're also not utilizing the second ring enough. Most of the action is shoved in one ring while the other is a space for guys to nap.

 

I'm still enjoying the match, it just has some weaknesses.
