Ricky Jackson Posted June 30, 2019 Report Share Posted June 30, 2019 This was one of the best things NXT has done all year. Io and Shayna were great and the drama at the end was really well done. They basically did a modern take on the Snuka vs Muraco cage for the finish (and in a nice touch, Mauro referenced that match earlier), with Shayna picking up a fluke win. Post match sees Io snap on Candice LeRae, a turn that had been slowly building for weeks, and the crowd reacted with legit disappointment at one of their heroes going bad. All eyes were on Io when she left the ring and this felt like a big time moment. That's what happens when you build up characters and stories the crowd care about and get emotionally invested in, instead of diluting everything with overexposure, 7 hour shows, 50-50 booking, bad comedy, lack of logic and all the other negatives that prevent anyone from giving a shit about almost everything on the main roster. Great match and angle. **** 1/4 for the whole package Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
