plz remember that it was ~ME~ who told you that everything you like is actually really not good, because I knew all along.


quote:

In the latest Observer Radio, Meltzer talks about the latest set of tapings and he brings up Gargano getting the NXT Title shot at Takeover: Toronto and not Matt Riddle. Says he was told Riddle will be staying there "for a long time" so they are not rushing anything with him. He says at one point it was going to be Cole vs Riddle for the title, which is why he beat Roderick Strong at Takeover XXV to set that up, but now Riddle won't even be on the card at Takeover: Toronto.

Yeah. Its looking like Takeover will be the following card:

Cole vs Gargano III
TUE vs Street Profits
Dream vs Dunne vs Strong
Baszler vs Yim
Breakout Tournament Finals

And the taping before Takeover should have three matches.

Breezango vs Forgotten Sons
Riddle vs Dain
Shirai vs LeRae

This is the first Takeover where I can look at the pre-tapes and I'd rather see all three of them on the main card instead of most of the others.

Yeah.

Dream vs Dunne vs Strong will be good. Same goes for the NXT Tag Team title match.

Otherwise I don't really care about anything else on the main card. And apparently neither does NXT because the three likely pre-tape matches had significantly more build done at the tapings than the actual matches on the Takeover card itself. Cole vs Gargano III is really starting to stretch this feud, and I want both men to move on to other things after its done. I don't care about the Breakout Tournament finals because whoever wins is probably losing at the next set of tapings anyways. And Baszler/Yim has been completely eclipsed by the Shirai/LeRae feud, barring any potentially great backstage segments between Yim/Baszler.

Meanwhile the Dain/Riddle feud has been pretty great because of how great some of the spots have been (like Riddle being sent through the entrance ramp floor), Breezango reuniting in a place where they'll actually be treated fairly well, and Shirai brutally attacking Candice and displaying a significantly more malevolent side of herself.

With the build all taped two months prior to Takeover you have to assume they put on together those three matches/pairings together in case someone on the intended main card gets hurt in the interim.

I know people probably don't want it, but it feels like NXT has enough big names and and good will that they could expand Takeover cards by at least a match or two and increase their length.

6 matches, and making sure there's at least two women's and maybe have the non-title men's one be a tag sometimes would probably freshen things up some, yes.

I honestly wouldn't mind a slightly longer Takeover. As long as they don't turn into 12 match cards like most main roster PPVs, then I don't really mind. 6 or 7 matches would be nice to have, as long as the quality of said matches are high.

He beat Strong at the tapings, and Dream attempted to jump him from behind afterwards.
