Kassius Ohno vs Andrade Cien Almas

Two of my current favourites going against each other. Means: this match certainly goes into my collection of Best NXT Matches of 2017. It also has this one moment that makes it worthy of the appreciation. It also got great storytelling because the two lads are simply good at it. Enjoy!

NXT TakeOver ORLANDO_behind_Ambregal_collage

Two great matches, one fun match and a main event I couldn’t care less about. Most certainly, NXT isn’t on the same level again that it had been before. William Regal introduced us to all new title belts and there are even more indie wrestlers (back) in NXT. I’m not really looking forward to that aspect. But I’m looking back to NXT TakeOver: Orlando. Right here, right now. Enjoy!

NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II 2016/08/20: Bobby Roode is gloriously overrated

At the moment, Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano are my favourite wrestlers in all of WWE right now. So, of course, their match against The Revival was my main event of NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II. Others didn’t impress me that much. I still don’t get why people aren’t excited about Andrade “Cien” Almas. The guy is glorious, much more than the guy overly hyped as such. Other impressions from the latest NXT live show, you can read here. Enjoy!
