What an amazing show top to bottom by NXT. Triple H said it best when we he applauded the fans for really bringing the energy, and I’m with him on that. I also believe this is the deepest roster NXT has produced. Top names were missing from the card, which shows how far this roster can go with talent. Every match really brought it Saturday night.
The opening contest was as good as it gets with Keith Lee continuing his feud with Dominik Dijakovic for the North American Championship and you knew right off the bat the energy was going to be brought. Ending the night with Adam Cole retaining the NXt heavyweight championship from Tommaso Ciampa in the main event brought down the road to NXT Takeover Tampa.
The crazy thing is Triple H said that will be the best card yet. Better then Portland? That might be a hard one to top. From Charlotte Flair accepting Rhea Ripley’s challenge for Wrestlemania to Johnny Gargano turning on Ciampa at the end of the match to cost him the championship belt. Finn Balor and Gargano wrestled a clinic and now questions are starting to arise. Who will challenge Cole in Tampa? What’s next for Balor? Does Ripley have a match the night before Mania? What match will Gargano and Ciampa continue the feud? How does Tegan Knox and Dakota Kai continue their feud? Can anyone take down Keith Lee in the future? Not to mention who will fight the Broserweights for the tag team championship after an unbelievable bout vs Undisupted Era to take the gold.
The beauty is we have time to figure this all out. Talent such as Killer Kross, Velveteen Dream, Timothy Thatcher and Austin Theory I am sure will play a role as well. One thing remains, NXT’s roster is as good as it’s ever been.
