Wow, that was great. Built and built to an unexpected crescendo. They were given a good 45 minutes too. It had time to breathe. Not the most consistent TakeOver, but the highs were phenomenal.

That Vic guy just doesn't have the energy or passion that Mauro exudes.

Tag match was awesome. Ricochet/Dream was brilliant! Dream wearing the prince Puma tights :lol: And Gargano/Ciampa was once again outstanding, with a great ending and the right man won.

Thought the main event was excellent.

Not too keen on the lead commentator. Even by WWE standards he was bland, but at least didn't take away from the show.

Big spoiler for tonight’s Money in the Bank (involving a women’s match):

James Ellsworth is backstage at Money in the Bank, being hidden on a bus, so he will be making some sort of appearance at tonight's PPV.

NXT proving once again where the WWE product should be. The fact I do not care at all for Nak/AJ says it all.

Christ, that fake tan job on Cass. It’s already all over the canvas.

Already MITB is better than the last (main roster) PPV.

Can't believe how over Elias is. Calls the crowd scumbags, and they start chanting 'We deserve it' and 'We are scumbags'. Unless I completely misheard those dualing chants, they did kind of overlap.

The women SMASHED it! So many great spots, risks and bumps. They now have a failsafe to impede Rousey's ascent to Champion. I assume she could cash in tonight?

I like Paige way more now as general manager than I ever did as a wrestler.

The crowd during Reigns and Mahal has been amazing.

Absolute joke. Asuka now has a loss to Carmella... as if her insufferable screeching wasn't bad enough. It feels like Asuka's streak was an unwanted inheritance for the main roster.

Can’t believe they’ve brought back James Ellsworth. It was played out the last time.

Wouldn’t be surprised if this ends in a double count out, which would be apt as they’ve just brought up St Valentines Day Massacre. Everyone on the KickOff panel earlier went with a Nakamura win.

Wow, loved that. That was my favourite of their matches.

Not going to lie, I'm wrecked, flagging so bad. Not sure if I'll make the end of the show, which will surely overrun past 4am, with the men's MITB match, and Rousey / Jaxx still to go.

Totally saw that coming. Much deserved too. Bliss is still heel MVP.

Rousey proving herself tonight and at WrestleMania. No chance of her embarrassing herself in the ring, she’s so far been better than many that have been doing it for years.

Yeah, she put on a solid show.

Hoping Joe wins this, or Balor, or Strowman. :shifty: I'd be surprised if they didn't go with a SD win to even it out.

Wow, I'd hoped, but never expected. I hope he's the one to take the title off Lesnar.

Sounds like money in the bank was pretty decent. I don’t think I have a change of watching it this week so just read the results instead.

It’s such a shame that they’ve already had strowman face Lesnar earlier in the year. It would have added much more intrigue to Strowman having the briefcase.
