    NXT TAKEOVER: BROOKLYN IV - 8/18/2018

    Yeah, Josh Barnett is another of Billy's underlings. Karl Gotch is the god of Japanese pro-wrestling but Robinson is another influential foreign figure.

    NXT TAKEOVER: BROOKLYN IV - 8/18/2018

    @FlaeBlazer while she almost assuredly watches Minoru Suzuki, Baszler was at least partially trained by Billy Robinson. MiSu was also trained by Billy Robinson. They were hot for the opener and after that came back to life for big spots and finishing stretches. That's pretty normal for a WWE PPV but not for an NXT special.

    They bringing in all tha hotness between LIJ and Badido. OTT crowds have incredible electricity and are good natured. I look forward to it.

    I immediately thought of WALTER as a mid '90s Triple Crown holder when I saw that too.

    He doesn't seem impressed. Also, I've been watching Hokuto no Ken before passing out each night the past few weeks. Please tell me that's a Kenshiro shirt.

    NXT TAKEOVER: BROOKLYN IV - 8/18/2018

    Ciampa is great. Loved his cowardly rolling out of the ring numerous times to beat the count. Also using THE CRUTCH to prop himself up was a lovely piece of cowardice and self-referential storytelling. I really appreciated his throwing everything and everyone on Gargano following the barricade spot too. Lots of small things done exceedingly well on his part. Finish was very anticlimactic in terms of violence escalating and then that figurative slipping on a banana peel. I get that Gargano brought about his own demise and all that but it felt weak.

    Tomorrow's show could be a heatless wreck if tonight's anything to go by. The crowd popped for spots and the odd chant but for a Takeover crowd, they were shockingly subdued. P.S. Mauro is getting more insufferable, right?

    He's not a great athlete and they've lately been having fun with him being relatively out of shape in six man tags. He's not at his best doing super indie, high paced matches. He's a very good, great even, storyteller and seller. Super smart worker that usually finds interesting ways to make up for his lack of athleticism. I recommend the previous encounters between these two teams. The NXT TV match from a month ago or so was better than this I thought and highlighted Trent's selling, even if the finish was half spoiled because WWE doesn't like to explain their tag cutoff rule to their audience for... reasons.

    Didn't Kairi only hit one top rope elbow in addition to the second rope one earlier on? I agree that she probably shouldn't have hit it if she's not winning with it but I marked the fuck out for the nise Bret/Austin finish again because once Shayna kicked out and got a hold of her neck I thought it was GG 4 sure.

    Riddle had flip flops on with the suit. Fucking perfect! Still at the start of the main event but I thought the women's match was the best and my favourite followed closely by the tag. Kairi is one of the best sellers going today, has incredible emotion, and is the perfect underdog against Shayna's bully character. Awesome stuff and one of the best NXT women's matches ever in my opinion. Dream/EC3 was brutal, maybe one of the worst NXT takeover matches. Dream is a great character and has all the promise in the world but he's got a long way to go in the ring. The dynamic in terms of face/heel was opposite of what it should've been too. The crowd somewhat turned on EC3 but didn't care enough to go all the way I guess. I am not digging NXT Ricochet either. Somehow his attention to details/character work got worse in NXT when that's the thing they're supposed to be great at pulling that out of indie talents. He looked slow (I guess he's coming off injury, right?) but did some weird things in terms of move sequences that didn't make sense. I did enjoy the crowd chanting 'NXT' after they did a Japanese strike exchange then Ricochet shortly thereafter hit Dragon Lee's apron-to-floor rana. Was a good match but nothing special imo. Can Gargano get called up to 205 Live yet? I know it's hypocritical coming from an Omega enthusiast but his hammy facials just kill me inside.

    That is an insane statistic.

    Way easier to watch than either Spring Break. Everything was fun except the ladder match, and that still had some crazy and memorable moments. The final two matches weren't great but very good, I'd say. Don't expect any high end matches but just a very enjoyable, fascinating, and excessive show whose whole is far greater than the sum of its parts.

    Rightfully so... Until he's overexposed in like two months but that's okay.
