Randomly picked this match to honor Johnny V, and oh boy I'm glad I did. Where to begin? Well, Johnny Valiant takes an epic ass kicking from Bob, a shine that goes on for 14 MINUTES AND VALIANT DOESN'T REMOVE HIS RING JACKET THE WHOLE TIME! Next, the transition to Valiant on offense is Bob screwing up a hold and accidently knocking himself silly on the ropes. Yes, Valiant doesn't even initiate the transition. I don't think I've ever seen that before. Then we get a decent beatdown on Bob before the All American Boy rallies for the win. Great stooging heel performance by Valiant. RIP "Macho" (as it says on the back of his tights)
HUGE card tonight, perhaps the most stacked Takeover yet. Gargano vs Ciampa should be great, Almas vs Black should deliver, ladder match will have crazy heat and could be a ridiculous spotfest clustermess of a match, and tag and women's match should also be good. Can't wait!
