Awesome to get some Dave and Braden before I crash!


Dustin Koga from Hawaii. 1st and foremost. Super stoked to sit in, once again, on Bartender Dave and Braden, reviewing a NXT Takeover, among the OG, John Pollock. Takeover was awesome. Finally, we had a main event that was Match-of-the-Night. My only beef was that Ciampa’s heat was a little weak. IMO, the show was 8 out of 10.

Anyone else not get the hype for Mauro? The majority of the IWC treats him like he is the standard for what a wrestling commentator should be. I’m not an MMA or boxing fan at all, so maybe some of his lure is lost to me. Mauro usually comes across as overly energetic and screams at the top of his lungs on every high spot/near fall. I feel like he was a bitter better at taming this last night, but it’s still over the top. Also, his jokes and pop culture references usually are a swing and a miss.

i feel the same. He’s better than most of the commentary team but his quips and reference are dreadful.

IMO he’s among the very best.

He’s pretty much like that in MMA and boxing, but of course not as often and only when it’s very important. So you have to like his style to enjoy him, if you don’t do it, he can be annoying. I don’t watch NXT on regular base, so I don’t know how he’s during the weekly shows, but his “mamma mia”-catchphrase was overused yesterday.

At least he’s credibility when he talks about the background of Baszler, just imagine Cole in this position.

Don’t know whether or not the absence of Nigel had any effect on his performance.
