Well this Takeover was quite watchable... I had really little interest going in, but each match was great. Love seeing Chicago go nuts over Authors of Pain winning, and then Ciampo turning heel. Silly smarks.

Asuka just keeps going. If she weren't just so damned good it might get boring, but she is to that NXT Women's Championship what CM Punk was to the WWE Championship, and better still she's about to break his record too.

I really wonder who and how they're going to end her championship reign. Part of me wants to see it just get vacated after she goes to the main roster, but another wants to see that crazy upset. I'm still surprised that Ember Moon didn't take the title from her WrestleMania weekend. 

Does anyone else think Hideo Itami might end up in the cruiserweight division on the main roster?

Takeover was amazing. Another underwhelming card over achieves. Called this PPV yesterday 100% down to the end.

What a great show Takeover Chicago was.

The UK Championship match walked out with the show firmly in hand and nobody else could match the energy of these two young guys.

We had a hard hitting ladder match in the MAIN EVENT slot which means somebody knows how to prioritize the hot angles.

The women's match was amazing but the finish felt rushed to me. Just that very last sequence left me a little deflated.

A VERY solid outing. I loved it!

I agree about the women's match. Right up to the end I was thinking the UK title match probably stole the show, but the women following it aren't laying down and dying either, they're doing quite well... and then suddenly the match was over and it was like: WTF???

Quite surprised to see the tag match close the show but as it turns out it was the right call.

Thought it was a great show, most I've enjoyed a NXT event since the Owens/Zayn/Neville era. The only disappointments were no Drew McIntyre or Aleister Black which I found a little odd as they are being pushed as top talents.

The two Brits get match of the night, first class match and far better than I thought these two were capable of. I hope to see the UK title become a regular fixture in NXT.

The women's match didn't really interest me as I've not really followed the depleted NXT women's division for a while now.

Roode/Itami and the ladder match were both first class efforts, as was Strong vs Young. Fantastic show from start to finish.
