Intrigued to watch this match now, given the positivity of your review SLB, when compared with others I've heard/read that were far more negative. Always good to get a different range of opinions on something.

What pimped Lashley matches/angles from TNA would people recommend as a primer on where he is as a performer nowadays? From what I've heard/the little I've seen he's got pretty good.

 

Would recommend his match with Drew Galloway for the title at Slammiversary 2016, then any of the matches from the series he had with Eddie Edwards, again in 2016. I think that year he also had a fun match with James Storm where he was trying to hold all the titles at once. Not quite sure about last year, but 2016 was a really strong year for him, he was pretty much the MVP of the company that year.

Steph was definitely the MVP of the match, she might have been the MVP of the whole weekend.

 

Could definitely get behind this. While I can see why you could get upset about her blocking the armbar a couple of times, in the end it just made it even more worthwhile when she did finally get caught with it, I thought it was a glorious ending, as Ronda sadistically just waited for Steph's fingers to be prised apart one by one while the look of sheer terror on Steph's face for what was about to happen was fantastic,

 

Both women were incredible in this one.     

 

And Stephanie's always been a miles better performer than Shane.

I've also always quite liked No Way Jose. I think it is a valid point to say the character may not work on the main show, but he's fun, and deserves this chance. He'd work great in a tag team I think.

I'm PWO's sole Ember Moon supporter, I think. I approve.

 

Hey, I'm an Ember supporter too, so lets make that two of us at least!

 

I think some criticisms of the gimmick she had in NXT were fair - I'm not sure quite what they were really going for, and probably neither were they - but as a performer, she has consistently been really good in pretty much all her matches. I thought in particular her match with Asuka at Takeover Brooklyn was fantastic. I love her selling as well - in the matches against Asuka and the one with Shayna at Takeover Philadelphia. Over the last few months they had moved away quite a lot from the whole mysterious part of the character to where she was basically just a fiery babyface.

 

For people that may not like her, I'd recommend watching the last NXT TV show of the year for 2017 which was more of an end of year review. There's a personality piece they do on her that was great and she comes across so well. I'm rooting for you Ember!
