    It is indeed 100% bullshit eliminating both young teams.

    On the positive side, Asuka is fucking great!

    Not if it leads to something. I'm a little behind, but I expect the outcome of the tourney to carry on until the next takeover.

    Yeah, I was hoping for Jordan and Gable to make the final... Asuka had a great debut. Match wasn't great, but it was good enough. Brooke was out of her element. Emma/Asuka should be good (if it happens).

    Loved the crowd chanting for Gable to Angle's theme. Awesome. Very impressed with the ending sequence of that tag match as well. As for the elimination of both young teams - eh. I get what you're saying that they should (especially Gable and Jordan) be pushing their talent as it is a DEVELOPMENTAL brand. But, from a business side, if you're looking to get the $$, put some indie darlings like Balor and Joe.

    Asuka is indeed badass. I was surprised with Dana Brooke - decent in that match up; impressed with her abilities on the mat.

    Brooke is getting better. But compared to a vet like Asuka, some of her inexperience showed.

    Brooke is much better than she was. She's no where near being as good as the top NXT women but she is improving.

    Match of the night, again. Sasha making the little girl cry was priceless.

    Finn's knee didn't even lead to anything. Incredible. What a way to botch that tournament. I am glad that, of those two teams, Bálor and Joe won, though. I don't think the top two singles guys in NXT really needed the underdog treatment, but whatever. The ceremony made up for it, very much so.

    Asuka/Dana Brooke was a great match with great offense on both sides, and Asuka went over very well. This program reminds me a bit of how Hideo was introduced, when he was getting double-teamed by the Ascension, but Asuka is much better off, both in story and in reality, because her match was clean and seemed to adapt to the WWE style very well. On another note, god damn I miss Hideo. Please come back soon.

    Tyler/Apollo was great, but I think the wrong guy went over. Tyler needs to start getting wins, because he's solidifying his "big match jobber" status with all these losses. I was hoping they would do this the smart way and break Apollo's win streak early so he wouldn't be bogged down by it, but, well, the booking sucked for the undercard tonight, so that's that.

    Bayley/Sasha was a master class. That's all I got.

    I saw what Sasha did to that little girl. That is textbook heel and Sasha sold it. Oh, I heard she later apologized to that little girl after the match. She's the BO$$

    Breeze carried the match. No doubt about that. Asuka is legit. I just hope she transitions better than Itami did. The tournament felt like a huge missed opportunity for many things. I get what they did. But, now what? I can understand having the baby faces win, and I guess not do anything over the top after Cody's speech. The selling of the knee was weak. Imo, Jordan/Gable vs. Balor/Joe would've been better, no matter the outcome. That could've been the rub those guys needed.

    I don't have much to add that hasn't been mentioned already. Another fun NXT Takeover, I had a feeling that Joe and Balor were going to take it once I saw that they were a team around 2 months ago. An upset victory by Jordan and Gable would have been amazing, but as much as I didn't agree with it, it all made sense during the celebration afterward. Balor definitely could have sold the knee injury more and I wish the ending sequences to both of their matches were not exactly the same.

    Dana Brooke has earned some points in my book, but damn....I'm stoked on Asuka.

    I feel bad for Breeze, I don't think a loss would have been so bad for Crews (who I think needs a damn personality) tonight, no shame in losing to a former title contender.

    That main event was fucking great, even though we all knew who would come out on top, the pinfalls were creative and the storytelling was perfect. Sasha brought out the old school heel and I was loving it. Good luck to her on the main roster.....I really hope they treat her right.

    Great NXT show, Bayley and Sasha tore down the house, everyone knew that Bayley was going to win but that does't mean it was a anti climatic match, those two ladies have all my respect...

    I knew Bayley was winning. But, I knew the match would be good. So I had no problem with it. Plus, it was spoiled for me on my phone. Didn't matter though. It's those matches that you know are obvious and you have low hopes for that you need to worry about.

    It was very predictable that Bayley was going to win at Takeover Brooklyn too and it was a great match. Predictable doesn't always mean bad.

    Yup, still babyface. A little more edgier though.

    TNA just got another nail in the coffin. James Storm made his debut at NXT tonight at a taping.

    I wasn't watching when Beer Money was together. Bobby Roode is the fucking man though. Not crazy about Storm. But, I definitely respect him. Maybe he'll turn it up a notch in NXT. Maybe like Sting and so many others, he phoned it in at tna.

    I have a feeling he's going to go by his usual name. Could be wrong. But, it looks like he's going to have the same role as Rhyno. There to help the younger guys, etc.

    It's James Storm. The Samoa Joe special, presumably. I doubt either of them are going to hit the main roster - they're there to make the young guys look good and get WWE on their résumé before they retire.

    Word has it that Del Rio might go back to WWE. Personally, I hope not. But, if I were him, I'd make sure to get way more money after what happened to him.

    I don't want Del Rio back in the WWE. He'll be misused and booked poorly. Besides, after the way he got fired by the WWE for standing up for himself. Why should he return? Fuck them.

    Neither do i. He was boring in wwe. Plus, I'm surprised they would be willing to bring him back after what he's said about them. But, if I were him, I'd make them pay out the ass if they really want him.

    I understand why they are trying to bring Del Rio back, they currently don't have a major latin star and they are not pushing Calisto or Sin Cara (for whatever reason) so they are going back with the most successful of those guys.
    I have mixed feelings: in a way i don't want him to come back after the shitty treatment they gave him and the double standards they have in there (it's Ok if an emloyee says something racist backstage but it's not ok when they say it in a radio show or whatever...). I another hand i do want him to come back, since i believe he's very talented and great as a heel (just keep the cars and have Ricardo Rodríguez as his announcer)

    I wonder what issues he had with Lucha Underground. Maybe he wanted to be in the title picture? But he already has the AAA Heavyweight title, which was a valid championship in LU. He doesn't need both.

    I hope he never comes back to WWE. They misused him and made him boring as fuck. He's better off on the American indie and Mexican circuits where he makes good money and is beloved by the fans.
