NXT recaps TakeOver Chicago II!

A true highlight reel of all the fast and furious action that went down on Saturday, June 16, 2018. From Undisputed tag team champions to a loony lass that let herself go limp, to a #OneandOnlyDream Match all about the spotlight, to a Dutch Destroyer making a Leviathan #FadeToBlack, to two men who were once friends trying to destroy each other. TakeOver brought just about everything but the kitchen sink. The only question now: what’s next?

 

Dakota Kai VS Bianca Belair!

The Captain of Team Kick overcame her fears in regards to the Queen of Spades, but can she overcome a woman who is the strongest, toughest, baddest and so much more? Or will The EST add Dakota to her fastest growing win list?

The bell rings, and Bianca pie-faces Dakota around. Bianca whips Dakota, but Dakota gets around and keeps moving to dropkick Bianca down. Dakota goes to whip but Bianca reverses. Dakota goes up and over, then rolls Bianca, ONE. Bianca waistlocks Dakota but Dakota resists. Dakota trips Bianca then runs to Penalty Kick her down. Cover, TWO, but Dakota keeps focus. Dakota goes over but Bianca pushes her back to then flapjack her onto the buckles. Bianca rams her shoulder into Dakota, then backs off to smirk. Bianca brings Dakota up, suplexes, and fans chant “EST!” as she rebound suplexes Dakota to the mat. Dakota crawls but Bianca is on her with a splash! Bianca kips up, then tells Dakota to “kiss this”.

Dakota gets to a corner while fans cheer Bianca on. Bianca twirls her hair as Dakota stands up. Bianca clubs Dakota, covers, TWO. She grows annoyed with Dakota, but brings her up for a modified abdominal stretch. Bianca adds a clawing hand, then grabs hair to thrash Dakota around. The referee counts Bianca, and she lets up. She still elbows Dakota, then pulls on hair again. Bianca bends and stretches Dakota but fans rally and Dakota endures. Bianca pumphandles and backbreakers Dakota! Dakota writhes while Bianca dares her to get up. Dakota hits back, but it doesn’t hurt Bianca. Bianca clubs Dakota down, then drags her up.

Bianca suplexes Dakota again, rebounds again, then again to show off her strength! She gets a hat trick but Dakota rolls her, TWO. Dakota trips then rolls around, TWO. Bianca runs and kicks Dakota down, then throws her by her hair. Bianca runs, but her splash hits knees! She flops to a corner, then Dakota crawls over. Fans rally for both women as they stagger up. Bianca misses in the corner, enziguri from Dakota! Both women are down, but stir. Dakota is up and kicks Bianca down. Scorpion kick then bicycle kick! Bianca gets to a corner, Dakota goes Around the World! Then, boot wash! Cover, TWO!

Dakota can’t believe it, but she knows she’s close, too. She climbs up top, but Bianca is up. Dakota jumps over, avoids the hair whip, but Bianca avoids the roundhouse to forearm Dakota back! Bianca grabs Dakota, torture rack driver! Cover, Bianca wins!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall

The EST impresses Chicago with her performance tonight. Racking up the wins like this, will Bianca become the  strongest, toughest, and baddest #1 contender to the NXT Women’s Championship?

 

Exclusive backstage interview with Ricochet.

The King of Flight went toe to toe and move for move with the Patrick Clark Experience, and won. What’s next? “Well like I said before,” Ricochet has shown us just the tip of the iceberg. He showed he’s not just some gif online or a bunch of flips. Ricochet showed us all that the spotlight is now on him, the One and Only.

And Velveteen Dream’s own interview.

After losing to Ricochet, where does he go next? It was #DreamOver in New Orleans, so what do you think? That’s all he has to say, but what will he do?

 

Exclusive interview with Shayna Baszler.

The Queen of Spades is joined by her fellow Four Horsewomen of MMA, Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir, as she speaks on her successful defense against Crazy Nikki Cross. Was there any doubt that she’d lsoe to Nikki’s madness? “You know how you defeat chaos? You suck the air out of it and put it to sleep.” #AndStill. If not even Nikki Cross can defeat Bully Baszler, then who can?

 

NXT reviews THE NXT Championship match.

The Leviathan shocked the world when he blocked the Black Mass with one hand on NXT TV. Then he shocked us again when he slammed Aleister Black three times, just because he could. Then in the match itself, Lars Sullivan still threw the Embodiment of the End off with his superhuman sturdiness. But Aleister proved he had both toughness and intellect to match, as he focused on the giant’s jaw. It took no less than two Black Mass kicks, but finally, Lars went down and Aleister retained.

Exclusive interview with Aleister Black.

The Dutch Destroyer, sore in body as he was, had no time or energy to talk. He would hobble on into the night, victorious.

 

Exclusive interview with Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch.

The one-two combination did not win the NXT Tag Team Championships off Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong, partially thanks to Adam Cole. Chicago still showed their respect and appreciation for their efforts, but how do they themselves feel? “This is a combined 25 years of experience in the making”, of blood, sweat and tears just to get to WWE and NXT. Their first TakeOver, they came up short and they’re heartbroken, but they left it all in the ring, and you can’t ask for anything more. It was the biggest match of their careers, but the biggest loss, too. They’re disappointed, but they’re still standing. Will the Boston & British Brawlers fight their way back up towards something big?

 

NXT looks back to the brutality of the Chicago Street Fight.

Chicago was the location where DIY broke apart, all because of Tommaso Ciampa’s paranoia. Ciampa accused Johnny Gargano of being selfish, but Gargano wasn’t the one making life a living Hell for his former friend. In the end, even Candice LeRae wanted Gargano to “kick his ass”, and Gargano went out to do just that! So much symbolism was in every sinister and sadistic move from both men, and Gargano would bring out a darker side of himself than perhaps even he knew he had. But in the end, he would lose focus, and that would cause him to lose the match. Ciampa exposed hard wood and drove Gargano headfirst into it. The Psycho Killer would stand tall, and wave “bye-bye”. Now that Ciampa got his “moment”, is it finally over between him and Johnny Wrestling?

 

NXT Media catches up with EC3.

What did The Top One Percent think of TakeOver: Chicago II? “Is there anything like it?” That show proved why NXT is THE top brand in sports entertainment. It had thrills, chills, action and excitement, but it didn’t have EC3. He isn’t promising, he is proclaiming: The Top One Percent will be at 100% of TakeOvers going forward. EC3 has been building this brand into #NX3 with #VictoryAfterVictoryAfterVictory. He claims to be the best here, the best there, the best anywhere, but he’s going to prove it. EC3 is going to kick the doors wide open to demand the top tier of competition available. In other words, EC3 is calling his shot. And when he calls his shot, he doesn’t miss. Who is he aiming for? “Everybody!!”

 

The War Raiders VS The Mighty!

War comes to Chicago as Ray Rowe and “Warbeard” Hanson look to show Shane Thorne & Nick Miller what it’s really like to be mighty. Forget kneeling, will Thorne & Miller still be standing after this match?

But as The Mighty have done, they use some sneakier tactics, as they throw their fancy new dusters at Rowe & Hanson! The Mighty put Hanson on the outside, then stomp away on Rowe. The referee backs Thorne & Miller off to check on Rowe. Rowe simply demands this match begin! The bell rings, and Rowe hits Thorne with shotgun knees! Miller comes in, but gets thrown overhead! Miller slumps out, Rowe tags in Hanson. Fans chant “War! War!” as Hanson is whipped into squash Thorne, then Rowe picks Hanson up for the human weapon hip attack! Fans fire up as Hanson tags back to Rowe. Rowe stalks Thorne, and brings him up for the lift. Hanson climbs but Miller pushes him down!

Rowe goes after Miller, but then Thorne clobbers Rowe. Thorne rolls Rowe and even puts feet on the ropes! TWO, because Miller wasn’t there to help anchor him. Thorne hurries up to knee Rowe down, then tags Miller. Miller drags Rowe up and drops ax handles and crossface punches. Fans boo, but Miller keeps going. Rowe shoves Miller away but Miller knocks Rowe out of the ring. Miller distracts and Thorne gets a cheap shot in! Thorne puts Rowe in, then tags in. The Mighty pick Rowe up, back drop neckbreaker! Cover, TWO! The Mighty are shocked and furious but fans rally up for the War Raiders.

Thorne goes after Rowe in a corner with European Uppercuts. Rowe shoves him away, then they brawl. Rowe fights out of the Mighty’s corner, but Thorne dropkicks him back down. Thorne goes to hit Hanson, but Hanson intimidates him with a roar. Thorne goes back to Rowe, but his senton misses! Hot tag to Hanson! Hanson throws Thorne with a back drop, then side slams Miller, before squashing him with a splash! Hanson picks up and swings Thorne for a slam. Miller dodges but ends up in a seated senton! Hanson cartwheels past Thorne to clothesline him down!

Fans are all fired up, and so is Hanson. Hanson tags Rowe, “War! War!” echoes out, as Hanson feeds Thorne to Rowe to pop Thorne up for Thor’s Hammer! Cover, but Miller breaks it! Rowe throws Miller out, and Hanson DIVES! Hanson wipes Miller out, but that’s not all. War Raiders regroup, Rowe gives Thorne the Ace Ten Mao! Tag to Hanson, and Hanson climbs. Rowe drags Thorne up, FALLOUT! Cover, War Raiders win!

Winners: The War Raiders, Hanson pinning

The warpath continues, and no one is safe. Will the NXT Tag Team Champions have to worry about a truly threatening team coming for their gold?

 


 

My Thoughts:

For those who don’t know, post-TakeOver episodes of NXT are never that big of a deal, as they’re actually filmed before TakeOver. It’s just through the magic of editing that it all feels like a post-show. All the interviews featured were great, and fitting of each character’s story after the event. The matches were actually alright tonight. Bianca VS Dakota was great for an opener, and honestly could’ve been the main given how great Chicago reacted to Bianca. War Raiders VS The Mighty was so quick, but also as exciting and well-received. As I’ve been saying, we must be getting War Raiders VS Undisputed Era in this next arc, and hopefully Bobby Fish will be healed by then for a proper match-up of ROH teams in NXT.

My Score: 8/10

(NOAH) WEEKLY NEWSLETTER VOL.31~ 21ST APRIL 2019

With the Global Tag League in full effect, Hisame brings us those weekly NOAH updates! Read up on one of the best Japanese promotions that tends to fly under the radar!

With the Global Tag League in full effect, Hisame brings us those weekly NOAH updates! Read up on one of the best Japanese promotions that tends to fly under the radar!

CURRENT TOUR RECAP
NOAH’s first show back on the mainland was held on a midweek night, and while the attendance was not good (819), the show was intense and the fans that did not go were lamenting that they were prevented from going due to it being a midweek night, and therefore, a work night.

Due to Quiet Storm sustaining a concussion after receiving a kick to the head from Kenoh in Sapporo, NOAH have changed their cards (no date has been given for a return of either himself or Kimya Okada yet), and 50 Funky Powers have so far been deducted four points, as per the rules of Global Tag League which counts a team being unable to compete as an automatic loss and a win for the other team (hence the reason why The Tough have two points), and Rocky Kawamura was drafted in to compete at Korakuen Hall. His gimmick is Rocky (the character from the films), and Mohammed

Yone took his name from Mohammed Ali, so you had two boxing fans together.

Yone laughed afterwards and said that he himself might try coming to the ring in boxing gloves.

True to his word, NOSAWA Rongai bought a “friend” to Korakuen Hall.

The “friend” turned out to be Hideki Suzuki who had a match in 2018 in NOAH against Naomichi Marufuji and Atsushi Kotoge (he teamed with Jay Bradley), but wasn’t seen at all again until 2019.

Suzuki got in the ring and asked for a tag match against Marufuji (Suzuki will team with NOSAWA), as he was at ringside (and all of the heavyweights are tied up in Global Tag League), Marufuji, after telling Suzuki that he should build his own gang, said “lets just have a match” and nominated Junta Miyawaki to be his partner. Miyawaki told NOSAWA that he was going to get the victory over him.

Match has been set for the last night of Global Tag League on May 4th.

When asked why he was here, Hideki said he was “job hunting” and hadn’t been employed since the beginning of the year. He later admitted that he was here for himself.

As if the Korakuen Hall crowd weren’t wound up enough, there was a HUGE upset for AXIZ when Masao Inoue (whom the crowd had been cheering on), got the sneak win over Katsuhiko Nakajima.

After the match, Inoue and Saito went to imitate AXIZ’S pose, but at the last moment Saito walked away leaving Inoue to crash to the floor.

The crowd laughed.

Saito laughed louder.

Nakajima, however, didn’t find anything amusing and said that Masao Inoue has borrowed something big, and he will be coming to take it back.

Whatever it is that is going on between Stinger and Daisuke Harada took another turn at Korakuen Hall.

Yoshinari Ogawa offered his hand to Daisuke Harada again, and Harada went to take it, but Tadasuke objected. Harada shoved him aside, and Tadasuke fell against the ropes with a look of surprise. Ogawa tried again, but this time YO-HEY came between them. After that, Harada looked at his hand and just left the ring.

AXIZ were not the only team to have a bad night at Korakuen Hall, their rivals in KAIOH did too.

Takashi Sugiura (complete with stitches after the headbutts from Atsushi Kotoge in Sapporo) stood still and staring at his two former protegees as they entered the ring.

They probably knew that it was a very very bad sign. This match was not about “The Sugiura Army” beating KAIOH, this was about Takashi Sugiura beating down two upstarts, and although they put him through hell, he prevailed with the headlock choke on Kaito Kiyomiya. After the match he got on the microphone and told Kiyomiya that he wouldn’t push the issue now as it was Global Tag League, but he wanted Kiyomiya to remember, that he would be coming for the title.

NOAH held their next event on Sunday 21st April at a new venue (which had been a former fish market) in springtime Niigata. Attendance was a full house of 865.

Naturally, being an event by the Shinano River, a fight went outside and to the riverside, and Marufuji almost threw YO-HEY in. Tadasuke thought it would have been funny, but YO-HEY said that the next time NOAH come to the venue, he is going to bring goggles and a flotation device for Marufuji.

Marufuji’s response was basically, “bring them for yourself”.

Fact is, that if NOAH go back there in the summer or autumn, someone will most likely go in (probably Kotoge in his cape).

Daisuke Harada made the first defense ever of the IPW Junior Heavyweight title against Hitoshi Kumano. While I don’t have too much details on the match itself, one fan did liken it to a fight that one of the Four Pillars would have put on. It was that intense.

Harada said that he wants his next challenger to be British, and said it would be interesting to see if anyone came over to NOAH. He also said that with Global Junior Tag League starting, he was equally interested to see if a team would enter.

When asked about the handshake with Ogawa, Harada walked away.

Yoshinari Ogawa had said that you could see how the situation was developing, as Kotaro Suzuki added, “If the leader’s heart is swayed, then the team is over”

Kaioh were almost beaten in Global Tag League by The Inferno. That was until Kiyomiya changed the tide of the match, and got the pin via the Tiger Suplex on Maybach Taniguchi.

So far Kenoh has not managed to get a single win at Global Tag League. Once the league is over, and especially if Kaioh do not win the titles, then his resentment is going to erupt.

As of the time of writing, The Sugiura Army lead the scoreboard with eight points.

~ Each time Atsushi Kotoge went to do the “Revolutionary Hero” pose, Marufuji smacked his arm down (Yoshiki Inamura in Niigata was a little more game)
~ Takashi Sugiura said there are to be no further entries into the “Sugiura Army”, he also doesn’t like NOSAWA being put at the center of the group in the official photographs for the new “Sugiura Army” t-shirts.
~ I don’t want to know exactly what a “YO-HEY Teriyaki McBurger” is
~ Takashi Sugiura’s most infamous dog video this week was him on his lap, and chewing the cord of his tracksuit pants.
