That triple threat was good fun and easily the best Deville has looked yet on tv.

Main event was alright. The highlight for me was AoA's return.

Enjoyable enough show, but they'd be better served keeping Cole out of the ring until Takeover and having him cut promos, which is his strong suit. Cole works best as a Miz-like cocky heel running his mouth. 

Drew's promo was fine but, man...this guy has cut the same promo about being fired for years now. I get that being released from WWE was tough but I mean...get over it. Him being released after being in 3MB is this generation's equivalent of Hunter talking about the fucking Hog Pen.

Real professional of backstage robo-interviewer #16 to just roll out when Vega jwalked on the set. I get going for something a little different and not just having Almas attack Drew as it's such a cliche, but that whole deal came off a bit awkward. 

3 way was a fun sprint with a nice story being told with Riot jacking up her ankle on the dive leading into the finishing sequence. 

Black/Mendoza was more solid building to the Takeover match with Velveteen Dream.

Cezar/Ohno was...a match.

Main was fine and furthered the idea of Cole being a chicken shit opportunist. Good to see AOP back in the mix.

The thing is... he's freakin great at doing that promo. And it works because it doesn't come off like sour grapes but more like a rebirth, phoenix and shit cavorting in the background.

They're just getting you ready to hear Cole talk about it every single week when Drew gets called up.  Vintage Cole!
