NXT Takeover XXV - Bridgeport, CT - 6/1/2019

Recommended Posts

Riddle and Strong really kicked some arse.  It’s a pleasure to watch guys/girls who are so on, everything they do is crisp and every hold and throw and transition is aesthetically beautiful in the same way as ballet or Kung-fu. But also not like a choreographed dance routine. Anyway, it was great. 

Also, Shayna has to be the best heel in any of WWE. She embodies her character and, maybe it’s because I don’t catch NXT every week, but I would be happy for her to just continue doing her thing for a while longer.

Internet wrestling fans: no one is emotionally invested anymore. Nothing feels important.

NXT Takeover Live Crowd last night: 13,000 wrestling fans emotionally invested from bell-to-bell and reacting viscerally to every nearfall during Gargano vs Cole.

Internet wrestling fans: NO, NOT LIKE THAT!

Was the case around these parts after the previous TakeOver, was the case around these parts after this TakeOver and will be the case around these parts after the next TakeOver.

I don't think most of the major criticisms of various Takeovers had anything to do with crowd investment.
