The tag title match reminded me of an early 90’s wrestling match with the Viking gimmick tag team going against a team that looked like a dull, no gimmick, jobber team. The match was okay but I have seen both have better. They did not need to do another match with Riddle and Ohno they should of left it with him knocking him out last time. This was an okay match and I did like the finish but I don’t think Riddle can go much further with this Bro Gimmick he should be more of a badass than a stonner. I did enjoy the Ricochet/Gargano match but how much more can they do with Gargano in NXT. But then I don’t see him being very successful if he does move to either Raw or Smackdown due to his size. The women’s match was boring. The main event was another Ciampa match and they are getting old fast. He is a good champion but just like Gargano I don’t see how much more they can do with him on NXT but unlike Gargano I think Ciampa could be very successful on either Raw or Smackdown. While this was a good show the standard that has been set by previous NXT TakeOver shows this one was very underwhelming.
