I was hoping they would’ve changed the finish. I’m still not big on Keith Lee.

I was more sold on him back around the Rumble than I am now. However it was time for Cole to drop the title so it is what it is. I’m wondering if they will move UE up now. I’m not sure how bad that would be it just feels like there is nothing for them in NXT right now.

My favourite moment of the show was the Tegan/Io promo package. I thought it was f’in cool. Io using that anime bad guy robotic voice clearly speaks to my geekiness. Tegan sounded great too.

I agree I loved the Package. Though it seems like poor timing for Tegan, as I don’t think she should win. She feels like someone who should have beaten a Heel champion Ripley as a big comeback story.

Yeah that would have been a cool story to do. In reality, Rhea said that she completely freaked out when she saw Tegan in pain on the floor but she tried to stay in character.

Yeah, it would totally be Kayfabe not reality
