Excited seeing this! She'd been out for over a year now, but I loved her NXT UK run, most especially her match with Meiko. I'll definitely watch more for this.

Dug the rest of what I caught. Roxanne/Indi are both great. Zoey's always a fav. Trios main event was pretty good. I can get behind an Alba vs. Isla feud.  Seemed that the Iron Survivors are both like all heels and 1 face.

McKenzie Mitchell was always my favorite interviewer since Impact, her reactions to Javi here are hilarious.

Have Toxic Attraction ever hit their tag finisher cleany? Feels like Jayne always hits her part clean and Dolin is usually just kicking the air somewhere in the vicinity of their opponent. That aside, that main even was really great. Mandy's knee to the face on the outside was a deadlier-looking spot than anything in the much more-hyped 6 man tag of the week.

JD-Creed was nuts until the lackluster ending. That one bump McDonagh took through the ropes was gnarly.

I liked the Apollo Crews-Bron diner showdown/tribute to DeNiro-Pesce in 'Heat'.

I actually really dug the HOFers talking about the NXT competitors. I'm an NHL draft enthusiast, and this reminded me of those types of shows with vets talking about the prospects.

I'm torn between NXT's division of woman being maybe the deepest roster of possible stars that they've had in years (Lyons, Cora, Roxanne, Stark, Stratton (if she ever comes back...) and a lot of their presentation being akin to low-budget porn parodies (Er...not that I've seen any of those) in that someone like Kiana James wrestles perfectly well but has that terrible board-room boss presentation that is fooling no one and with the tiny skirt and glasses she almost definitely doesn't need just feels like someone's weird fetish booked into existence.

It's Sheamus taking on Sami Zane!  Sami goes back to assuming the roll of Terry Funk en lieu of El Generico.  Sheamus is still the new Greg the Hammer Valentine, what with him beating the fuck out of folks.  Sheamus is wrestling like this is the lowest rung on the ladder to climb to get to Roman Reigns. Sheamus isn't making like Sami is GUNTHER- so this isn't transcendent or anything.  Fun reversal of a Toprope Air Raid Crash into a Powerbomb by Sami!  FOR TWO!  Air Raid Crash by Sheamus FOR TWO!  Jimmy Uso CHEATS!  BLUE POWER BOMB FOR TWO!  Solo Sikoa Beats the fudge out of the ringside Brawling Brutes!  Jay Uso Superkicks Sheamus and Sami rolls him up for the win!  That was fun.  Emma kisses Madcap Moss!  OooooOooooo!  And she gets beaten to death by Shayna Baszler!  Emma sells the arm damage.  NEARFALL on a Hanging Neckbreaker on Baszler!  Emma with a Tarantula!  Shayna randomly applies the Sleeper and Emma taps!  That was quick.  Shotzi runs down postmatch to also get beaten to death by Baszler!  Raquel Rodriguez runs down and doesn't get beaten to death by Baszler.  Lacy Evans 3.0!  I dug 2.0.  Jesus Christ, Kofi Kingston gets to get beaten to death by GUNTHER!  GUNTHER sells a wad before cutting off Kofi with something hideous. Kaiser CHEATS!  Braun Strowman shows up and Kofi gets a nearfall on a SOS!  Kofi gets a bunch more offense.  GUNTHER opts to start mauling Kingston.  SUWA DROPKICK!  GUNTHER beats him with an EMERALD FROZIEN~!   I think that was an Emerald Frozien.  That was good.  Not a harrowing GUNTHER exercise in stiffness, but it was good.   Tegan Knox is back!  Liv Morgan is still hardcore and crazy!  Santo Escobar and Ricochet wrestle to take on GUNTHER!  The ref throws Legado del Fantasma out and the crowd doesn't really pop like freaks, which is strange.  GREAT fucking Tope by Escobar.  I give it 1/2 Dragon Lee.   I give it a 1/3rd Ciclon Ramirez.  The crowd are watching something to the left of the match.  This is good.  Kinda Dragon Gate.  Needs a little stiffness and weight or some Strange Style to make me really dig it, but this is good.   Gnarly Superplex by Ricochet.  Ricochet and Escobar SHOWBOAT their freakish balance and Escobar hits a Rana to the floor!  Man, the Buffalo crowd sucks ass.  Ricochet does the Will Ospreay Landing On His Feet From A Toprope Rana!  Escobar gets his Knees up for the Shooting Star Press!  Toprope Poison Rana by Ricochet!  Ricochet hits a 2 Cold Scorpio Tumbleweed for the win!  That was good!  That was a good little episode of Smackdown.

I liked Gunther doing the Emerald Friosion as a finish.

Tegan Nox is back and with her full name again, she looks like the nu Lita.

Lot of stuff announced.

Hype main. They did that NJPW callback spot.

I was thinking of Gunther vs Ricochet in my mind and it gets booked.

I freaking loved that Ricochet/ Escobar main event. And Lacey 3.0 or 5.0, she's had a lot of changes, better be basically heel Slaughter. That'd work, because she can't be a babyface. It never takes. 

She's a great heel.  Yeah, I hope she sticks to the dark side.

Sami/Sheamus was good fun. Dug the Usos/Sami bonding before the match and Sheamus attack in the back later in the night.

Emma/Shayna was alright while it lasted. The post match stuff with Shotzi and Raquel making the save was fine.

Gunther/Kofi was a welcome surprise and good stuff. Kind of surprised Gunther wasn't as stiff as normal with Kofi. The Emerald Frosion as a new finisher for Gunther is a nice choice.

I kind of zoned out on Lacey's segment. Kind of disappointed to see them relaunching her again. I still think the face push could have worked had they timed it it better. Still she is a good heel though it feels like there is little room for her to do much with Ronda, Shayna, and Damage Control around.

The Damage Control segment was decent. Its good to see Nox back. Wonder if she eventually teams with Shotzi again.

Escobar/Ricochet was good. They busted out some neat stuff. Guess Escobar has been saving that up for either someone like Ricochet or a main roster match. Wish Escobar won though Gunther/Ricochet probably makes more sense.
