15 March 2017 | Kassius Ohno vs Bobby Roode

Kassius Ohno vs Bobby Roode

The first match for Chris Hero a.k.a Kassius Ohno back in NXT. Against Bobby Roode. For the NXT Championship. Something clearly changed in NXT since Kassius Ohno left. And not everything was for the better. Also Kassius Ohno changed. That’s why he kept his shirt on during the match. So, yes, I’ve got a bit to say about that match and its surroundings. Enjoy!

22 February 2017 | Mark Andrews vs Pete Dunne

Also the second encounter between two competitors of the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament on NXT was an instant classic. Pete Dunne still reminds me a little too much about William Regal. But is that really bad? He definitely has got his own style, especially gimmick wise. And Mark Andrews was his worthy first victim. The video and a few thoughts about the match and further possibilities, you find under the cut. Enjoy!

15 February 2017 | Trent Seven vs Tyler Bate

Like I already assumed during the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament in January, a few competitors would soon join NXT. Of course, Tyler Bate as the UK champion was the first one. And he defended his title first against his usual tag team partner, Trent Seven. A fun match and an instant classic. Here are my thoughts, and the video. Enjoy!

28 January 2017 | Asuka vs Nikki Cross vs Billie Kay vs Peyton Royce

Usually the NXT TakeOver specials are indeed something special, something to look forward to. And usually the shows exceed all expectations. But not this time. Most matches appeared as fillers and didn’t have much history / story to them. And also the Fatal 4-Way match for the NXT Women’s Championship could have been better and longer. I still enjoyed this match the most from NXT TakeOver: San Antonio, so it’s on my list of Best NXT Matches of 2017. Here are my thoughts. Enjoy!

Many people aren’t satisfied with the Women’s Division in NXT right now. And I personally don’t like Liv Morgan very much. Her latest encounter with Ember Moon also didn’t last too long. And still I’ve included this match into my list of Best NXT Matches of 2017. There are a few reasons for it. And I’ve written them down here. Enjoy!

15 January 2017 | Tyler Bate vs Pete Dunne (UK Championship Tournament Final)

tyler-bate-vs-pete-dunne

What I liked most about the entire UK Championship Tournament was the story itself that came to full conclusion in the final match. In retrospect, everything else have been strings leading towards this fabulous finish. And Tyler Bate vs Pete Dunne very much lived up to the hype and intensity that was created previously. So, this is my little take not just on this very match but also on the whole tournament. Enjoy!
