The finals were exactly what I thought they would be. I wonder if they will play up the history at all, including the fact that this will be a rubber match for them.

Just seeing comments from those who went it sounds like this year's tournament is way better than last year's. I saw a gif of one or two moves from Kacy, and I can totally see why they wanted her in this. She is going to be huge when she get called up.

Feel sorry for Tegan though I'm interested in seeing how Ripley does with Io.

I hope we see Meiko in WWE again at some point, even just for occasional one offs. I know Sasha totally wants to wrestle her.

 Yeah night 2 of this year's myc smokes last year's. I've seen a couple meiko satomura matches before but after the past two days, I want to see every match. She was the mvp of the tourney. The semi match was amazing and match of the tourney for sure. As for the Tegan thing, that was the saddest moment in wrestling I've seen in years. When she did the dive and got up and hit the steps, the whole crowd gasped cause we knew it was bad. I've never heard a crowd go silent like that. I hope she can come back. What awful luck.

I honestly thought the final was going to be Nox/Storm to set-up a rivalry on NXT UK. They were really yping both Storm and Nox way more than they were hyping Io. It i a damn shame about Nox breaking her leg, means she is pretty much out for the rest of the year.

Outside of Cole's comment during the parade of champions were they really hyping Nox all that much? Also the winner of this gets an NXT title shot going off of Shayna's comments about them needing a second tournament to find a challenger for her belt. It feels like this tournament was always Io's to lose. If anything it seems likely that Nox would have lost here so she could win and defend the NXTUK Women's title at Evolution. Not sure what happens with that now.
