Did NXT whet our appetite for NXT Takeover: WarGames this Saturday?
Did NXT whet our appetite for NXT Takeover: WarGames this Saturday?

How was the go-home show of NXT TV before Takeover: WarGames this weekend? Before we list five salient points on the show, we have one central point to note about the yellow brand.

Why this point has not made it to the countdown is because this is not just a feature of one show, but every single episode of NXT TV. Mauro Ranallo and Nigel McGuiness may be the best commentary team in all of wrestling, at this moment.

Percy Watson has grown by leaps and bounds since he came on board, and is a worthy addition to the mix. NXT, as a result, is not just a brand that we enjoy watching, but one that we really enjoy listening to as well.

This was not the best episode of NXT TV that we have seen (there wasn't even a main event match), but it was certainly a notable episode, from the first bell to the very finish.

#5 Momentum before the big night

Ember Moon eclipsed her competition, this week

Mercedes Martinez was interviewed a few weeks ago, and she said that Ember Moon always choked on the big stage, and would not win the NXT Women's Championship at Takeover. As is usually the case whenever someone makes unflattering comments about someone else in NXT, the two women decided to settle their differences in the middle of the ring.

In many ways, this was the main event match, considering this was the final match in the show. Both women wrestled at a very fast pace, and as one would expect, Ember Moon picked up the big win, heading into her biggest match.

As is customary, all the women came to the ring, for a massive staredown before their Championship match. One of these women will become Asuka's worthy successor.

Will Ember Moon finally have her moment of glory or will she be eclipsed again?
