Eh... lame ending where they slowed the whole match down just for that cross body off the skull. Didnít make much sense for Io to hit 3 big moves on the ramp and a moonsault in the ring and not win it.

I said it before, and I'll say it again. Raquel is super loving limited at the end of the day and she's gonna get exposed quickly.

Didn't watch but did Raquel sell a bit after the moves? Maybe they were trying to sell her as a big hoss in the vein of a WALTER where she doesn't go down easily but if you get caught with a move from her, it's like death.

Who knows. They showed about 20 full screen replays of that moonsault.

And now the whole nation - pulpit and all - will take up the war-cry, and shout itself hoarse, and mob any honest man who ventures to open his mouth; and presently such mouths will cease to open.

I think the Capital One Wrestling Center or whatever the gently caress it is called would be my one of my favorite wrestling venues ever if they would just turn off the fan cams. That wrap around screen is dope and the graphics they use are so much better than WWE normally uses, maybe that is because it is a full sail run thing. And fans behind actual cages is always cool and they had really good energy tonight . Then they put the washed out bored fans up there with the lovely cage overlay and it really kills it.

That aside, Good show. Sad Io lost but I also expected it. My surprise of the night was how much I enjoyed the gauntlet match since those usually suck in WWE.

KUSHIDA wanted to make the jump up but they wouldn't let him. His case is a real unfortunate sense of timing cause if his contract had ended even 6 months later AEW would have been starting to cook and he could probably have made inroads there instead

I thought the redtext someone dumped on you was in bad taste and a bit much so here's a corgi instead.

kushida's so weird bc of all the people who left japan for wwe, he's the one i have the most sympathy for: he had absolutely topped out in njpw in a somewhat stagnant division that was going to get fastier and flippier and not work as well with his style. seems like he wanted to go somewhere very new and have the opportunity to get into pc training, i think?

that said, i wonder if he could have just made the transition to heavyweight there, in retrospect?

Nah, KUSHIDA is 5'9 & 185lbs, he's not passing as a Heavyweight in New Japan. You have to be taller like ZSJ or built like a brick shithouse like Ishii. Honestly, he probably should've gone to DDT but they wouldn't be as well so you can understand why he'd go to WWE despite everything.

Astro7x posted:

That match... good god.

I donít think Iíve ever seen a bad Walter match on a Takeover.

I don't think I've ever seen a bad Walter match. Although I did want to turn this one off when he came out & the piped in boos were awful sounding. But it's WWE so I should expect them to at last find a way to make watching Walter hit people a chore. But a chore I will endure for my favourite large European baby.

Ciampa's intangible is "psychotic". Walter's is "unbeatable". These are really loving dumb. The video wall is also super distracting. The main focal point of a wrestling match should be the wrestlers, the BT Sport empty arena setup is so much less annoying than this.

Walter chopping part of a desk in half is probably in the top ten coolest spots of the year despite being about as basic as you can get.

My favourite part was Walter being unable to use his chop and spamming the big boot instead.

He's never had a bad match as NXT UK champion. The initial match where he defeated Dunne was one of the best matches I've ever seen and the Bate defence was the best match I've ever seen live, such an incredible atmosphere in the Motor Point.

Walter rules, even in WWE.

I particularly admire the fact that he seemingly has no interest in the main roster, NXT, or the US full time. And, somehow, so far, he's gotten away with it.

I have NBC bookmarked and their top bar has Peacock that goes to https://www.nbc.com/networks/peacock. Which is just their signup or something instead of linking directly to https://www.peacocktv.com/
