An amazing night of surprises in Brooklyn.

That is why I am a wrestling fan.

In what is likely one of the best WWE events in a long time, NXT put on a show that was exciting through the amazing night in Brooklyn. We had a rare show where all the matches were good to great.

It was a show that had a logical booking with smart title changes. It also had many wonderful surprises as well. It is amazing to me that the so-called developmental brand of the WWE constantly exceeds the main roster pay-per-views time and time again.

With all of this in my still racing mind, I present my list of the top five most surprising moments of WWE Takeover: Brooklyn III:

#5 Almas Wins

I have felt really sorry for Andrade “Cien” Almas. He is a very talented wrestler who is constantly losing on the major Takeover stage time and time again. He started as a face but was quickly booed by the crowd. I fully expected his losing ways to continue at Takeover: Brooklyn III. I was happy to have been proven wrong.

It seems to have been a good idea to give Almas a manager in Zelina Vega. Her whole character is focused on making him more serious and focused.

It was strange to see Almas win with a T-shirt toss but this was clearly his best match in his lengthy Takeover history. It was a wonderful surprise to see him win on such a big stage.
