NXT Takeover: In Your House


Thumbs Up Show

Everything gets a thumbs up


Todd Pettengil reappeared. He did the voiceovers for tonight's show and sounds exactly the same. I feel like I'm watching an episode of WWF Mania.

Code Orange performed next.


The venue was designed to look like anIn Your Houseevent in the ‘90s. It worked in a setting like this.


Six-woman tag team match: Mia Yim, Shotzi Blackheart & Tegan Nox defeated Candace LeRae, Dakota Kai, & Raquel Gonzalez


***1/4


Finn Balor defeated Damian Priest

****1/4 This match ruled


NXT North American Championship match: Keith Lee (c) vs. Johnny Garganno


***1/4


Backlot Brawl for the NXT championship: Adam Cole (c) defeated Velveteen Dream


***1/2 dont usually enjoy backstage brawls, empty arena matches or these cinematic bullshits the Hardys started in 2016


The crowd added to the match. The lights subtracted from the match. They worked really hard.


Karrion Kross (w/ Scarlett Bordeaux) defeated Tomasso Ciampa
