I haven't watched NXT for a while so help me out........

1) Do we expect title changes in the three title matches? At these kind of shows you always expect champions to be ready for the main roster so new champions.

2) Gargano and Almas is the only non title match, will any more be announced?

I would expect AOP to drop the titles to whoever it may be because I think they're ready for the main roster... well by that I mean, they've learned everything they need to know in NXT. No one is ready for the shitstorm that is the main roster.

Asuka has been ready for ages, but I don't expect her to lose until after the MYC.

Likewise I don't think Bobby Roode is leaving NXT anytime soon either, which is unfortunate insomuch that he is the only guy to be able to put on a show rivaling that of The Gift of Jericho. Though perhaps he will lose the title, but stick around for his rematches until survivor series or so. That doesn't really seem likely to me.

Have to agree with that AOP are ready to move on now and i'm fully expecting AOP to be the ones attacking Breezango.

Going into this it seems more likely now than perhaps ever before that Asuka might lose the title. At this point I really don't know which way the match will go.

Still feel like AoP will lose, and maybe even Bobby Roode. NXT can handle the losses to the roster in the coming months, and with the rubber matches likely waiting for another NXT show that puts their debut on the main roster still some months out.

I suppose my uncertainty on the outcomes ought to make for a better viewing for me tonight.


EDIT: Just finished watching the women's title match, and damn if that didn't deliver. I haven't been overly interested in any match lately, not even this one, but it really blew me away. Ember Moon did very well for herself and Asuka looked like she was just having a blast. Great match.

Hopefully Roode vs Galaway delivers.

EDIT2: Well that match was kinda meh to me. Happy for Galaway, hope to see Roode on the main roster sooner rather than later, but I was rather underwhelmed by the match. Adam Cole, Fish and whatever his name was. A bunch of vanilla midget looking like they wish they were Hogan Hall and Nash. Lol that's pretty sad. I don't care about these guys.

Match of the night for me was definitely the women's title match, with a close second being the tag title match.

Another excellent event in-ring wise. It was great to see things switched up a bit with EY swapping with Dain, just goes to show you can never know which members you'll face so I hope they continue on that route.

My only real gripe is the fact they used post match attacks twice when it wasn't really needed. I get why they did it but they could have easily saved the tag team beatdown for NXT TV so it wasn't overkill.

Sounds like they agree that the women's title match was match of the night.

I think it was the best NXT show for a while, the roster down there is currently the strongest it's been since the glory days of Zayn, Neville, Owens and Balor. However after this event I think it's fairly clear the Authors of Pain and Bobby Roode are main roster bound very soon.

Gargano vs Andrade Almas was a excellent opener, the tag title match was also enjoyable and nice to see another group using the Freebird rule. The title change definitely suggests AOP are main roster bound.

Black vs Itami was another excellent hard hitting match, Black has huge star written all over him. Asuka/Moon was the most enjoyable ladies match I've seen in a long time.

Really liked the main event, McIntyre is on fire this time around, such a contrast from his lacklustre first WWE run. Obviously leaving WWE is sometimes exactly what's needed. I really like his edgy babyface character.

I know little about Adam Cole(other than he looks like a young Shawn Michaels) or his two buddies but some more new blood and a fresh main event match is never a bad thing. A ROH group could be like a smarks NWO.

NXT is far and away the best product in WWE. I'm actually thinking of giving up on Raw and Smackdown and just watching PPV's and the only weekly show I'll watch will be NXT.

Adam Cole is a ROH/Bullet Club guy, that's all I can tell you...oh and he was ROH World Champion for a bit of time until he lost it to Kyle O'Reilly of all people right Rico? (Bet that doesn't get brought up haha)

These guys are just such vanilla midgets to me it's hard to care. I remember seeing a match or two and as well as a promo or two from Adam Cole and he just seems to generic and boring, he was literally the least interesting guy in the segments I saw him in.

If they're going to bring in RoH guys, then they need to bring in guys like the Briscoes and Jay Lethal.
