That womens tag was a joke though. I don't even think it went past 4 minutes. Duke & Shafir just don't got it IMO. But they're MMA darlings that WWE seems to have a boner for these days so here we are.
I like them grouped with Shayna but otherwise yeah they’re not very good alone.

I’m intrigued by the first ever women’s war games! I didn’t see that coming!

I’ve got a bit of a thing for Jessamyn Duke, but I’ve never seen her wrestle. She’s appeared a bit clueless during a couple beat down segments I’ve watched while playing catch up though. How long has she been around?

I want to say a year? They’re both pretty green. If it weren’t for their connecting to Shayna, they definitely would not be on tv yet. That’s my guess.

UE is the modern day 4 Horsemen. Their 4 on 1 beat downs are awesome.

This week’s Smackdown proved to me that NXT TV needs to get out of Full Sail ASAP. The bigger arena crowd was so into the NXT roster, and the excitement really came through on TV. Full Sail has been making NXT feel a little small. Their TV lacks the energy AEW has. This could be the fix.

Styles, Gallows & Anderson on NXT after all this time is kinda funny.

Whats everybody's take on two WarGames matches at TakeOver? It effectively eliminated any chance of title matches unless we get something with the cruiserweight championship or maybe the UK championship.

I personally don't like it. Should've just been the women this year.

I assume now we get Gargano/Balor, NXT Cruiserweight Title, the 2 WarGames matches and maybe something with Priest/Dunne/Dain.

Has there ever been a DQ or non-finish of any kind on an NXT Takeover? I'm waiting for one now that we're in the 2 hour USA era.


*edit* Owens/Zayn was a no contest main event when Joe debuted after.

I really dug Rush vs. Garza from last night, a great spotlight for the cruiserweight championship and a solid finish.

I believe last night was the best NXT since it has launched on USA. Spontaneity and the threat of missing something if you change the channel is king!

See that episode drove me nuts and is just an example of NXT changing away from what it was. Takeover was an afterthought as all the hype was Survivor Series yet we STILL DONT KNOW THE NXT TEAMS!?

Frustrating to watch and I'm tired of the "great match where they go all out only for a dq/no contest" bit. Did it with Owens/McIntyre this week and I hated it. Can't wait for SS to be over with and hope NXT can get back to kinda just being NXT.

Been thinking about this for awhile about why Shayna does nothing for me and bores the heck outta me. First Shes basically had the title with the exception of Kairi having it for a very short time since Mania 34 til present (430 outta 500 days). She is an okay promo but nothing extrodinary and most important shes an okay wrestler at best. After Bayley Sasha and crew were having great matches, just cannot get into another boring Shayna match. Was thinking back to her title matches and of the 8 times shes been in an NXT womens title match at Takeover shes had the worst match on that Takeover 6 times and the 2nd worst match twice. And yes Takeover has an extremely high standard in the guys matches but even the one time there was a second womens match. Io vs Candice was a great match. I really hope they put the title on Rhea and please god don't wait til the next Takeover in February to pull the trigger don't want to wait over 2 more months to see Shayna finally lose.

Absolutely great to see Ohno on NXT this week. I don't expect him every week but I can dream.

Hahahahaha during the the title ladder match at Takeover 25 Blake Murphy powerbombs Kyle O’Reilly into the ladder Bobby Fish is climbing up, the ladder tips over and Fish lands on Kyle. Mauro Ranallo yells “OH MY GOD THEY KILLED KYLE!” I popped huge.
