There's a Riddle vs Suzuki match from, I think, RevPro a year or so back, and it's insane, just the two of them grapple-loving and slapping the piss out of each other.

This is the match that sold me on Riddle.

I may be reaching here, but are they setting up a Riddle/Cole feud? Cole dragging the ref out and the staredown from riddle while sitting in the ring afterwards had me thinking?

Is this a different one than their match at Bloodsport last year, because if so that one's also incredible. He also had an awesome RevPro match with Shibata in early 2017, which is what I think got me to love him.

Bianca is shorter than I thought she'd be. Given that Io is like 5'1" I'm guessing Bianca can't be taller than 5'5" which I guess goes to show you how much the ring gives you size. My wife also said that "Io must have learned her English from Asuka." my wife is japanese

Kona Reeves, maybe making a comeback? That'd be nice, in spite of not being particularly fond of him.

I think he needs to be a comedy heel if he's going to go anywhere. If he comes back still doing that "finest" gimmick and there's not a laugh anywhere in earshot, he might as well get future endeavored.

And yes, that match was incredible. Goes to show how much NXT can tell a good story with a 30 minute match that Raw can't tell in three hours.

Cole's biggest strength is winning matches in totally fair ways but you still feel like that fucker pulled a fast one.

I hate the Forgotten Sons too but I feel like a Takeover match with the War Raiders would be fun. The faces would be over and the heels would be hated and I can't see the Raiders actually dropping the titles there.

I'm also starting to get worried that there won't be room on the card for Keith Lee vs. Donovan Dijakovic

this but unironically

I was blessed to see Matt riddle vs Artemis Spencer live very close to when riddle signed. It ruled and I've been excited for him ever since.

I also wouldn't be shocked to see a Matt riddle vs Adam Cole nxt title feud, if the other 3 more used stars are going to refocus on the main roster now. Matt riddle getting a title defense against ciampa when he comes back would also be really cool I think.

Also having not read the most recent taping spoilers, I'll be shocked if shayna doesn't cause kairi vs Bianca to be a no contest.

When Ciampa comes back I assume itll be to the main roster because him and Gargano were going to be fully called up once their storyline concluded at the next Takeover.

Although I have no idea what they were going to do with the NXT title if that was the end unless one of them just vacated it like Asuka did (I stand by the opinion that Ember should have ended the streak to win).

NXT already had a real issue with training homegrown male wrestlers. Stacey was going to be a bit of a savior on that front.

And there's the Lars Sullivan situation.

honestly, given the level of injuries NXT has had lately, I was surprised at some of the bumps the Profits did in Evolve last weekend, though extremely unsurprised to see that Velveteen Dream was the lazy looking one in a match with Orange Cassidy

(Velveteen and the Profits were a super fun 6-man team regardless, though)
