NXT TakeOver Phoenix

Pre-show starting now (?).

I'm watching. Wish they would keep to the NXT roots and just run a standard 2 hour / 2:15 show, but no. Gotta make it last long as f word because it's WWE.

I hate these talking head people. The one with the fro and gross beard is extra annoying. Although they're all not my cup of tea.

Re: NXT TakeOver Phoenix

This is like all commercials for the event we're about to watch.

Maybe it's not actually intended to be viewed; feels like a major waste of time.

Yeah, I really really don't know what causes anyone to tune into these pre-shows after seeing one or two.

Re: NXT TakeOver Phoenix

I love these guys. Game of Thrones stuff is a little lame, but whatever.

Let's go War Raiders!

Re: NXT TakeOver Phoenix

Undisputed Era is so annoying in kayfabe- they constantly have the illegal man in the ring interfering and the ref doesn't do anything.

Re: NXT TakeOver Phoenix

That bump was sick and the slam from the partner to the floor earlier was pretty brutal as well. Guys trying to shorten their careers very early.

In for the rest of the night, probably. These things almost never disappoint.

That was pretty damn good, even if War Raiders do almost nothing for me.

Re: NXT TakeOver Phoenix

Love the War Raiders. Would have been legit pissed if they lost.

ETA: their gimmick is dumb, but I'm a sucker for big giant guys that look like real life bruisers rather than fitness models.

Re: NXT TakeOver Phoenix

Paradoxically, I hate Kassius Ohno.

Go bro, go bro.

Has Kassius Ohno won a feud ever?

Re: NXT TakeOver Phoenix

The only thing that Ohno bruises is his thigh from slapping it so many times.

Re: NXT TakeOver Phoenix

Has there ever been a tapout due to strikes in WWE (or even wrestling in general) ever?

Stupid American time zones. Missed the first 50mins.

Good match for the tag titles?

I can't really think of any. The only thing even close is Bryan doing his elbow smash gimmick in ROH from 05-09. I feel like Nigel tapped out to it once but idr clearly so I'm probably wrong.

Worth a watch for sure.
