I've watched this twice now, because I wanted to watch it with a fresh mindset after getting over my markdom of the Revival finally getting the titles.


The only real flaw that I find is that neither of them does much to put over the struggle of kicking out of near falls. Even when Gable gets the early German suplex on Dawson, he just lays there until after the ref gets to two, and then kicks out. There's a couple times when they make that idea work, like the blockbuster/German suplex and the near fall where Roode pushes Dash (I think) into Dawson to break up the pin.  But, other than that, they worked a good pace, the work was generally smart, and the match was well worked for the time constraints that TV forces them into.


I haven't seen a shit ton of stuff from this year (which is one reason that I enjoy lurking in these threads so I know what to check out), but, the only thing I'd probably put above this would be the NXT Tag Titles match from Takeover Phoenix.

Thought this was really good. The crowd was dead for the first half, but they got them going with some great throws from Gable. Thought his performance was the best in the match due to those sick throws and bumping around for the Revival. That Blockbuster into a German Suplex and the Revival catching Gable's dive into the Shatter Machine were particularly stand out great spots. Really good match.
