Triple H then gets it and embraces Bayley, handing her own set of flowers. "You deserve it" chants by the crowd for Bayley as the NXT roster gives her a standing ovation as the show closes.

I have to admit, Sasha v Bayley was absolutely tremendous to watch. I enjoyed their match at Takeover Brooklyn but this surpassed it in my opinion.

Breeze v Crews was surprisingly good, I feared Breeze would be squashed a bit. Tag Team Classic was a bit predictable, especially regarding the two semi finals. Asuka was dominant. Think the show was a little hurt with the NXT Title not being involved with Finn in the Tag Team Classic personally, but was otherwise another success.

I thought it was a great show, NXT back to its best for several matches.
Whilst the tag classic was predictable in its outcome I was really impressed with the partnership of Jordan & Gable, these two are really growing in performances each and every week, presume the Angle/World's Greatest Tag Team similarities are intentional as well.

I love the crowd chanting Gables name to Kurt Angles theme tune.

Bayley vs Banks was another excellent match and more than deserved to main event. Another credible match of the year candidate.

Asuka vs Brooke was the only negative stand out, but it was a Dana Brooke match so what else do you expect?

Sorry to go off on a tangent, but with regards to NXT....whats everyones opinions on Eva Marie?

I have only really encountered on Total Diva's and she strikes me a complete b3llend, who is more interested in becoming famous, then being a "Diva".

What do you guys make of her?

Worst ever, the sooner they get rid of her the better. Which is why she's set for a womans title match.

Haha, Well she draped Carmella over the apron & kicked her in the head. Which lead to "Please Retire" chants.

I thought Dana did a great job, she's really improved. Nice debut for Asuka, already looks comfortable.

Thought Corbin did well tonight too, although I'm not a big fan of his. The finish to the Corbin/Rhyno vs Jordan/Gable was immense. Gable seems so over.

Bayley vs Sasha was just amazing. The end was really emotional too with the tears and flowers etc.

I don't get the dislike of Eva Marie, other than she isn't as good technically as other women wrestlers.

That's because she can't wrestle and until 3 months ago never bothered to actually try to learn to wrestle.

Thought many aspects of this was disappointing. The main event certainly didnt deliver, and I was left a bit underwhelmed by the ticking clock ending.

The Balor-Joe win was weak and also unnecessary. So was having those two teams in the final.

Performers of the night were Jordan and Gable, Dana and Asuka. Otherwise I felt this was an underwhelming night, especially with Breeze taking a loss I really think they could have avoided. He has been working main roster shows this week and I hope he's going to get a call up because they've run out of ideas in NXT. I'd love him to be the man who beats Cena and injures him too.

I'm also not entirely sure Asuka is going to work as a face.

It just seemed a poorly booked event.

Gable and Jordan probably should have won. I think an actual tag team should beat non tag teams almost 100% of the time, but it makes sense that you give the two biggest names you have the win so the tournament automatically gets some prestige about it, especially if they're going to make it an annual event like the Andre Battle Royale. Corbin and Rhyno had to beat G@J because I dont think the two face team dynamic would have worked, especially if they were putting Balor over by fighting through a knee injury.

Dana Brooke put in probably her best perfomance in an NXT ring, although Im still cold on her. Asuka looked good and got over quick.

I feel bad for Breeze, he's done nothing wrong but had seen so many guys come and go ahead of him. I like that they mention it in commentary but he's rapidly become the Chris Jericho of NXT. It may be getting time to call him up to main roster, I agree, they're running out of ideas. Crewes had to win because they're building him up.

I like you Dolph, and we tend to agree on a lot of things, but honestly if you think the main event didnt deliver then thats just beyond jaded. It was the perfect follow up to the last match. The story of them going for the big moves that they hit in Brooklyn, but were getting countered because they know each other so well is brilliant. The role reversal of Sasha having an injured hand, and Corey Graves pointing out that she wasnt locking her hands properly during the Bank Statement so it wasnt as effective as it should be - thats just perfection. Thats the kind of thing that makes the difference. Sasha is one of the best pro wrestlers in the world today, and that includes male performers. She just gets it. She has the X Factor that makes her so good. I've rewatched the main event about three times and I have no problem putting it in my match of the year list. It more than delivered.

It wasnt perfect, but top to bottom it was one of the best shows of the year.

Sorry, Samo, but I think rather than me being jaded you are just too happy to ignore the flaws in NXT because you like it so much.

I think I may have somewhat disagreed with Promotheus on two things this week for sure: Breeze's place in NXT and homegrown talent in NXT. I think the Crews match proved him right on both; I don't think Crews/Uhaa is more talented than Breeze right now, in particular as an overall package, but I think because he came in WWE now want to keep pushing the indy darlings in NXT. It needs to be more refined than that. Even more so when the story had nothing to it really. I really do hope they give him a Regal retirement match in London and tell a story of how frustrated he has been being beaten lately, and also overlooked in the past.

Don't entirely think you need to push Joe and Balor onto that win, but I don't mind it as long as they are facing an actual tag team. But to have no real tag team in the final, instead a lukewarm combination in Corbin and Rhyno (that did nothing for Corbin's character to act so placid throughout) made it less a tag team classic and more a showcase of Balor. And Balor is already champ. And they played big on the injury, so had a perfect excuse to lose if they wanted. I dunno, I felt like that could have been a big moment for a team or pairing that needed it, but Joe and Balor dont.

As for the woman's match: they would have to go some to top their last bout, and it didnt. There was a very good spell with about 5 minutes left, but otherwise it was all Sasha's character work and not a great wrestling match. Sasha is brilliant, but that doesnt automatically mean every match of hers is great. It was good, but a little disappointing and I really dont think they needed this rematch. The reversals you talk about; I bet you dont give anywhere near as much credit to when that happens on the main roster. Let alone that actually I only found there to be one of those that felt psychological, rather than just a reversal. I think they are both better than they showed, it wasn't as fluid as their last match and the ending was a bit soft.

A 30min iron(wo)man match isnt easy to wrestle, but it doesnt get to be brilliant just because of that. You have to rise to it, but have it as an excuse. It was still a 3* or so, but not a patch on their Brooklyn match. The story was done then, really, especially with the 4 horsewoman stuff.

I will agree on the Graves comment though, first time I really liked him as a commentator, and he jumped up a lot in my estimations just for that.

My least favourite Takeover. Hopefully London will be better as I've paid out for it.

Definitely. I thought they were both brilliant and have flourished lately. The Gable chant to Angle's theme was brilliant.

Watched Sasha vs Bailey for a third time last night, match of the year in regards to storytelling (the Brooklyn clash is match of the year for in ring action). The way Sasha plays her heel character is so unbelievably good

Another home run from nXt, your turn London... Can you beat both Brooklyn and Respect?

I thought Takeover Brooklyn was great and I really enjoyed the Iron Woman match, groundbreaking stuff as far as WWE is concerned and from someone whose never been too hot on Womans Wrestling (granted that would be down to my staple of WWF/WWE growing up) I found myself transfixed into the storytelling of it, I loved Corey Gravea commentary too.
