Match Of The Night
War Games

WOW  that was immense and yet again NXT have outdone themselves. The whole show from start to finish was very enjoyable and three of the matches were some of the best I have seen this year. The first match was a good way to start with two big dudes beating the crap out of each other and the dominant Sullivan remains undefeated he is without a doubt a future contender for the NXT Championship. The  match between Black and Dream out did all expectations I had. I loved the tights Dream had on they were very Rick Rude like with His face and Black’s on either side. While Black remains undefeated and did so in impressive fashion there is no doubt the future for the Velveteen Dream is very bright. I found the Women’s match a bit of a cluster at the beginning but the all soon settled and it became an outstanding match that is up there with any women’s match we have seen in NXT over the years. The biggest shock of the night was easily Almas winning the title. It was a great match and the massive improvement we have seen from Almas continued in this match, he was fantastic but Drew was too this is easily a match of the year candidate and would of been the best match of the night if it were not for War Games. That match was insane. I loved every minute and I think they did the history and the creator (Dusty) proud in this match. The risk everyone took was crazy and some of the spots were amazing  like Dain’s Coast to Coast or Wolfe hitting a German Suplex on one of the Authors Of Pain from the top rope  sending him through a table below and of course the Suplex off the top of the cage by Roddy on Cole was awesome. All nine men gave everything and it was just as good as any War Games I have seen before.
