Welcome One, Welcome ALL! To another edition of the Golden Age of Grappling! This week in light of NXT having their 25th takeover (Which we discuss as well in current wrestling) we go back just 3 short years to NXT’s 10th Takeover event! Tye Dillenger is Super Over! Asuka kicks the consciousness out of Nia Jax! The Revival and American Alpha steal the show! Austin Aries is being overshadowed! and HHH really really liked this one part of an old Jim Johnston track!
THE END IS HERE! and the Beginning of the end has just begun?
We reviewed NXT Takeover: The End from June of 2016!
Originally cut from The Golden Age of Grappling podcast episode 29 when we reviewed Money in the Bank 2011. DP and Tony give their thoughts on the NXT Takeover THE END show that had actually JUST happened hours before recording!
So since we’re reviewing NXT Takeover THE END from 2016 in our episode 178, We thought it would be interesting to contrast our opinions NOW with our opinions then!
So enjoy episode 178, and then Pop in this bit of audio from 2016 and see how different we all were!
Welcome One, Welcome ALL! To the Golden Age of Grappling! This week, We leave the time machine in storage as we look to the land of the rising sun! See the Briscoe Brothers Take on Haku's kids in a fairly decent match only for the crowd to not really care! But then See the crowd come unglued repeatedly as the the legends Tenzan, Kojima, Nagata and Nakanishi battle the young brash punks of Pro Wrestling Noah! And the night ends with three fantastic matches featuring Kenny Omega vs Hirooki Goto, Shibata vs Kyle O'reilly and finally company champ against company champ as the Noah Champ tries to defeat Okada for the IWGP title!
