Aop beat the Ealy brothers who must be sponsored by sweetcorn manufacturers Green Giant. 2 huge dudes getting steamrollered. They Call out Revival but get DIY. Regal gives AOP both teams at takeover in an elimination match.
Heavy machinery – Dozovic and tucker knight vignette follows. Meh. They didn’t excite me in the Dusty tag tourney.
Nikki Cross brutalised Macey Estrella. Will she top the women’s division with this gimmick? Who knows. Quote of the year: ‘You don’t punch somebody from Glasgow in the face.’ Dillinger and jose got involved and got kicked in again by Sanity.
Kassius Ohno vs Bobby Roode. Ohno looking terrible in his fat roger Ramjet outfit, but hitting some decent moves, the best being the Cyclone boot. After a Hellacious match Roode got the pin via jumping ddt finish. It’s Roode vs Nakamura at Takeover and I’m very happy with the potential of that match!
NXT comes to the UK again. I am so excited by this news. The tour is obviously built around the now seemingly annual Download NXT event, but it’s great to hear they will be in my home town of Aberdeen this time. I know I’ll be there, but the big question is: what wrestlers will be there?
Post Mania, there is bound to be some call ups to Raw and Smackdown, but who will it be? No Nakamura on the poster is a hint, but Tye is on it and he was widely rumoured. Maybe he’ll be Here till the draft happens? Takeover will answer some of our questions but not them all!
until next week, I’ve been counted out.
