NXT bounces back from an average Takeover in April to put on a great show in Chicago!
Including the results of the fallout from the women’s battle royal last week, matches for all of NXT’s titles at Takeover: Chicago are determined in this episode, including a great number one contender match between Hideo Itami and Roderick Strong.
This edition of NXT was taped before Takeover: Orlando, and it very much felt like a pre-show. The matches were short, and the show was packed with clips and interviews from the big event. Not the best episode of NXT, but there’s still a little fun to be had here.
Though this felt more like a continuation of stroylines rather than a culmination, this year’s Wrestlemania-weekend Takeover had some very good matches and really fantastic moments. It wasn’t all spectacular, but it was very entertaining.
WHile most of this episode of NXT was meant as a setup for story payoffs down the road, the main event featuring Tyler Bate defending the UK Championship against Trent Seven was very entertaining.
The entire second round of the Dusty Classic is decided in some good matches, though two of those matches are marred by injuries.
This show had some surprises, and the main event tag match helped make this a show worth watching even though most of the actual wrestling isn’t anything special.
The 2016 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic starts with one squash and one good match, Samoa Joe ruins Dan Matha’s debut, Patrick Clark debut’s a new look when he faces Rich Swann, and Peyton Royce beats up a new girl with her friend Billie Kay by her side.
This show felt like a promo for another show. There were lots of matches, but all but one were squashes.
This was an uneven episode of NXT with some segments that were important (and entertaining) and some that were not.
This was essentially a recap of Takeover with a couple of filler matches. That’s not to say the matches weren’t good, they were fine, but they didn’t really mean much.
