BRM Reviews the 1/31/2018 NXT (Roddy vs. Bate!)

Post by Big Red Machine » Feb 1st, '18, 20:35

LACEY EVANS vs. NIKKI CROSS- 4/10
This was EXCELLENT for the time it got. They had one heck of a brawl right form the get-go, Evans missed a moonsault (which I don’t think anyone was even expecting her to try), and then Cross got the clean win with her finisher.

A DUMB INTERVIEWER ASKS SHAYNA BASZLER WHY SHE ATTACKED EMBER MOON AFTER THEIR MATCH- she’s lucky she wasn’t murdered. Instead, Shayna cut a promo basically saying “she didn’t beat me; she just survived me” and “who looks like they won now, me or her.”

UNDISPUTED ERA PROMO FROM AFTER TAKEOVER- They vow that SAnitY will pay for this. We’re getting SAnitY vs. redRagon for the tag titles next week. We’re also getting Adam Cole vs. Killian Dain next week.

VELVETEEN DREAM INTERVIEW FROM AFTER TAKEOVER- he was asked about his “I can beat Ohno in thirty seconds” comment but he basically said that the only thing that matters is that he won.

TM61 vs. THE EALY BROTHERS- 4/10
Oh. Yeah. I forgot that the Ealy Brothers existed. I was expecting a squash but this was pretty competitive. In fact, it was pretty much nuts for the time it got (assuming cagematch.net’s time of 3:18 is correct).

CHRISTY ST. CLOUD INTERVIEWS TM61- They are the might, and the mighty don’t kneel. In other words, they said nothing new or in any way interesting.

TOMMASO CIAMPA IGNORES REPORTERS AFTER TAKEOVER- he was stoic, was limping, and was dragging around the crutch he had bent around Gargano’s back. This was excellent.

ZELINA VEGA & ANDRADE “CIEN” ALMAS PROMO AFTER THE ROYAL RUMBLE- good.

UK TITLE #1 CONTENDERSHIP MATCH: Roderick Strong vs. Tyler Bate- 8.5/10
This was exactly the slugfest you’d image it to be, with Roddy working over Bate’s back as well. Roddy won, so we’re getting Roderick Strong vs. Pete Dunne, which should be even more of a slugfest.

A great show from NXT, if you’re able to just tune-out all of the Takeover recaps.
