Black or Gargano for beating Roode, please.
Have to agree on some of the sentiments on Drew McIntyre. I don't hate it, or him, but I'm not like pumped up to see him in a title match or to be champion.
He's more of a WWE champion than an NXT champion.
Couldn't be worse than Jinder, I guess
You guess? That isn't even a contest in the slightest, Galloway as been awesome for a long time now.
I'm with Kimi.
Drew was one of the top few guys I wanted WWE to sign when they expanded/split the rosters. Think he's terrific.
Having said that I've not seen much of his NXT work yet.
I've loved Drew since his chosen one days
I wish I felt anything watching Alestair Black. Really good, but I'm just not connecting with the guy.
Oney 4 next champ
Just re-watched Bayley/Asuka II from Brooklyn II, my god the crowd was so hot for this match, it was awesome. The last couple minutes of this matcha are absolutely amazing.
Bayley was so over too, WWE has ruined her.
Asuka also has such an aura around her during her TakeOver entrances, you just know she's gonna beat the holy hell out of her opponent(s)
I don't think it was Asuka's entrance as it was just Asuka herself.
I was in the crowd that night though and Bayley was the most over person in the building, if only slightly more than Nakamura, and Bayley losing felt more profound than Nakamura winning.
cien almas, zero pants. not sure what are they doing. hopefuly a better push, but i dont think i like this chick tellling him what to do.
next week should be amazing, strong vs drew
Zelina is giving Andrade more than he had before, she's bringing the intensity that he doesn't have, and then if only she's a voice, they'll be alright. I don't think it'll get him very far when it's said and done, but it's fine for him right now. Zelina will end up being the star, regardless. They're desperate for a new star from Mexico, so I think they'll work hard to make this work as long as Andrade is up to the challenge. There really isn't anyone else waiting in the wings here. No Way Jose should be coming up to the main roster pretty soon, maybe after SummerSlam. His time has run it's course, he's not going to get anymore over, and he's going to die is he keeps jobbing. Time to make a move.
Don't see where else he goes, maybe they use him as a body for the tag tournament. We all know his ceiling is that of a warm-up act much like Enzo & Cass.
The more this build goes on for the Takeover show, the more I think Asuka/Ember will be the main event. Or at least should be. Asuka definitely deserves to main event a show before she leaves. The main feud among the men has the title as really a periphery part of the equation. Roode and McIntyre are going to have this match, but the focus is still on Strong, and then Roode says he'll put the title up for Strong even after Strong said he didn't care about it. They payoff in a feud involving the champion, doesn't include the championship, and Strong has made that pretty clear. So, if that's where they're going, why do I care about the match with McIntyre? They look like they want to put Strong over Roode without Roode dropping the title.
AOP firmly established as faces for the match at Takeover, although I think Sanity will still get the cheers.
I just want it to happen so Roode can get called up and Black can move up.
I do agree Drew doesn't blow me away.
Roddy Strong is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo boring. They need to push Oney and Almas to the top.
So is the NXT title a triple threat or what? Drew as the only challenger is boring and does nothing for me. I want a good NXT title match.
Brooklyn III is probably one of the least hyped TakeOvers for me in a while. I still expect it to deliver like they always do but this ones just not grabbing me like the others have. Whats the full card?
Right now, it's:
Should be one mire coming, but it will be impromptu.
I'm wondering if there's a UK title match. PROGRESS have a show this weekend with a match for the UK title being advertised by WWE, something might happen there to set a match up for Takeover.
For Chicago they promoted the match much better than this has. I wonder if the deal with Adam Cole is done yet because this is the stage you would want to have his first match, not at the next taping. Nobody from the UK has so much been mentioned since then, and there doesn't seem to be any plans for it. Bate should still be getting a rematch. They also need something to promote the women's tournament.
I am more interested in Roode vs Strong then Drew going for the NXT title. Drew should be a guy I like but I am just not into him in NXT. I hope he doesn't get the title, and honestly he probably would be better off on Raw or Smackdown.
Street Profits are fun team but Fortez is the one with talent. Dawkins showed why he was been floundering in NXT for years. Fortez has some star potential in him very athletic and lots of charisma. I bet he is the brains behind the gimmick.
AOP vs Sanity is interesting because they are both heels though it seems like AOP is being set up as the faces. Not sure how that will go over in Brooklyn. I am a fan of Sanity but I don't see them coming out with the belts.
Cien needs a push or to be called up. He has floundered around in NXT so either do something with him there or move him up. Itami and Jose are in the same boat. All 3 should be moved when the superstar shake up happens.
Lorcan and Burch fun hard hitting match. They might have one more in them but I see them teaming up soon. NXT tag team division is going to improve shortly. ReDragon will re team for sure. Street Profits. Heavy Machinery still kicking around. I see Burch/Lorcan forming a team. I guess its right about that time for the Dusty Classic so it makes sense.
NXT has been on fire lately. I expect a bit of a post takeover lull which usually happens because they have a bunch of filler before they can tape again but after a bit of a slow period they are getting back to their ways.
I love Nikki Cross.
Oney will get over a bit more with another hard hitting match vs Burch.
I would feud him with Almas and just have them beat the hell out of each other, trading wins. Then ultimately Almas gets the upperhand in the rubber match and is in a much better position. Oney will get babyface sympathy that way too.
I don't see Burch as a main roster guy.
Nor does WWE. He isn't signed to a contract, just works freelance. I can see them using him and Lorcan in a tag team for a while though, especially to pad out the roster. They'd be the kind of team who the fans would get behind so you can beat them a bunch.
So many people not caring for Drew makes me sad
