    It wasn't an angle. She legit hurt her neck in that match but recently tweeted that she is doing OK now.

    About a few weeks to go till Takeover and they have yet to make a Logo of the event. I know it's no big deal but still what's taking so long?

    It was taped back in late February (I want to say the 22nd), so no it wasn't done in bad taste.

    I think the problem with me is Percy Watson. I do not want three-man teams on outside of RAW and SmackDown. IMO, Percy is NXT's version of Otunga.

    I find Nigel is an acquired taste. Reminds me of Ultramantis Black. At first I hated both on commentary, but eventually I gave them a chance and started to dig them.

    His speaking voice is just a major distraction, and he seems uncomfortable. I'm sure he'll get more comfortable as time goes one, but that voice will always be there.

    Everyone should check out the show this week. One of the bext NXT TV shows they've put out in a long time.

    It started with a great match between Andrade Almas and Oney Lorcan. They followed that up with the best Asuka squash ever. Great Roode/Nakamura package. The long-awaited Sanity vs Dillinger/Jose/Strong six man which was every bit the fun scrappy tag team match it should have been, and a neat surprise at the end. Sandwiched in between all of that were two very good promos from DIY and Revival.

    Hopefully we will never see The Drifter again after tonight. Or maybe Ohno loses and manages to have an even shorter NXT stint than his first go around.

    My first thought (before the match) was that Ohno loses, and NXT announces the hire of CHRIS HERO~!

    But after this, I wonder if someone's headed up to the main roster. We've seen more random callups before.

    Cocky unstoppable heelish champion Asuka is the best. She's absolutely killing it.

    I want her to win this one and face Ember again at the next Takeover so they can tell even more of a story with it.

    plus that means Asuka will be able to go over Goldberg's undefeated streak.

    I really think it would be better for both Ember's character and NXT as a whole.

    One thing that I think NXT has struggled with in the last year or so is booking babyface champions. I think part of the problem is the all-star approach they've taken to booking their top guys and Asuka. It's basically just been "YOU LOVED THIS GUY/GIRL ELSEWHERE AND NOW THEY'RE HERE," which is great for fan service, and also for a short acclimation period, but eventually it gets tiresome.

    Like, Shinsuke's been here for a year now and there's been virtually no character development with him whatsoever, a span that includes two different NXT title reigns. They're finally starting to let Asuka show some real personality and I think it makes her more interesting than ever. Unstoppable badass Asuka is great, but unstoppable badass Asuka with an added edge? That's really great.

    I fear by shifting the belt from Asuka to Ember at Takeover, you just keep the belt on this superpowered babyface champion and it kinda limits you, whereas if Asuka beats her and Ember has to earn another shot, and she wants it that much more because Asuka not only beat her, but disrespected her in the process, it finally gives Ember a character trait that people can latch onto, and makes her inevitable title win something people are looking forward to rather than just expecting.

    This is all assuming, of course, that we have another three months of Asuka in NXT. It's entirely possible that she drops the belt Saturday and shows up on Raw Monday night to kill somebody. If that's the case, so be it, but if Asuka can stick around for one more Takeover cycle, that's the way I hope they go.

    At least the Drifter went out with the best match of his NXT run. I mean, it wasn't an amazing match, but it was pretty good. The whole angle was very rushed though. Perhaps this was a sudden call-up.

    I remember reading a few days ago there are no plans of bringing Asuka to the main roster anytime soon. I can see her winning at this weekend's Takeover.

    Samson is a commodity in a sense. He is over completely as a heel act, even with the NXT crowd. I would understand a rush to call him up, true heels are rare these days.

    Decent show I thought. Couple of good matches and a great little segment from the women.

    I fucking love the Drifter. His in ring work is almost inconsequential.

    That moment when he walked down the steps playing those same two chords he always played that lead to this match was absolute heel gold.

    I think he's getting called up. And I love it.

    Heavy Machinery are basically what WWE wishes Authors of Pain were. That seems to be AOP's inevitable next feud since Revival and DIY are no doubt going to be called up, and TM61 are on the shelf.

    Sadly I can see Heavy Machinery being a comedy act within two years.
