I watched NXT this week just to see Kassius Ohno's return. Having not watched the weekly show for quite a while it was a fairly meh episode. All things told Takeover will likely be the only wrestling thing I watch that weekend, as it was last year.
Setting up a three way tag title match for the Takeover on 'Mania weekend. Ehhhh I don't know. The DIY and Revival matches were such barn burners last year that I find it hard to get excited with The Authors of Pain being in the mix as well.
I remember at the last Takeover I brought up in the chat about whether or not someone would help out Tye Dillenger with Sanity and I was talked down to as if I just started watching wrestling for the first time. Yet fast forwarding several months later Dillenger is teaming with No Way Jose to try to get some revenge on that group. It's not about wrestling logic duders, it's about fictional logic. If there's a faction handing out beat downs to a roster the best thing to do is unite and conquer. It's common sense.
I think Asuka's promos are better when she's blatantly cursing in Japanese.
I thought the main event with Ohno and Roode was just okay. I think the main thing that hurt it was the sedate crowd and the lackadaisical commentary. I'm somewhat disappointed that Ohno's probably going to be wearing the jersey-style top from now on, then again I think I just got use to the image of his gut spilling over his trunks as the sign of a true hoss. What's really going to grind my gears in the long run is that Chris Hero used piledrivers, Kassius Ohno does not.
I'm probably going to try and crash the PWG show this weekend. I keep telling myself that I'm way too blue collar to be going to these events all the time but I think I just have to come to terms with the fact that I'm hopelessly addicted to my local indie promotion. It is my wrestling happy place.
