Dunne/Kushida was really disappointing. It was ok, but I was expecting so much more. Pete Dunne is focusing too much on peoples hands in his matches. Its getting annoying.

Gauntlet match sucked, except for when Swerve & Grimes worked together and when LA Knight came out. One of those 3 should have won. Bronson Reed is garbage.

Walter/Ciampa was match of the night by far and it wasnt even close. Killer match between those 2 and I’m glad Ciampa finally shaved his head.

I fast forwarded the triple threat tag, because I dont care about any of these teams and they have the worst tag division on the planet.

Main event was solid. I prefer Shirai as champ, but she has had a great run. Its time for Candace Lerae to get that title. It is long overdue.

I mean I would argue that the main roster women’s tag division is the worst tag division in wrestling, followed by either main roster tag division. But yeah NXT has no depth in their division. WWE really feels like they have enough tag teams to make one solid division for each gender.

Man, that Walter/Ciampa match was an absolute war. Easy MOTY candidate.

Also really liked Kushida/Dunne and the gauntlet match was really fun. I just wish they would push Eli Drake as he is amazing on the mic and really stands out.

Did anyone else notice the ref fuck up in the main event? He counted three really early, that took me out of the match and Gonzalez didn’t really look that great IMO.

Had zero interest in the tag match but nice to see MSK win. Great show overall
