If you haven’t seen this show so far, do it. There won’t be a better show this year with all around good matches and well told stories from start to finish – well, except there will be another NXT special this year. Sometimes I wasn’t pleased with the outcome but that didn’t take away from the quality of the matches.
In just two weeks Elimination Chamber will take place (for whatever reason). So there is little time to built the match card for it. Before RAW started I wasn’t very excited for this Pay-Per-View but after I’ve seen it a little more. We’re back with Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins 2.0 and hopefully this time with a different finish.
There were two last shows before two big special shows during the coming week. So there were a lot of promos, a little teasing and a few matches, too. A lot can happen at Payback and NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable but I’m still trying to predict the outcomes. And I try to explain it as usual with my own logic.
We already knew that the special NXT events are indeed always special. But every other time all the wrestlers involved are even able to top themselves from the previous event. And they easily put every WWE Pay-Per-View into a dark corner of shame. The time for cheap talk is over. These shows are wrestling shows and that’s what’s best for business.
A bit of body paint, some great wrestlers, lot of respect for women and a big twist deep down from glorious heights is enough to put the upcoming TLC already on its spot.
