#2 Worst - No shenanigans from The Way at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day
It may be slightly nitpicky, but NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day could have done with more variety. Don't get me wrong, Johnny Gargano and Kushida put on a spectacular match. But NXT could have leaned towards heavier involvement for the North American Champion's faction, The Way.
Gargano and The Way have been the highlight of NXT over the past month or so, particularly during the go-home episode for NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day. They are an absolute riot as was proved during their brief appearance during the show. However, that did not play into the match.
As The Way was heading out, Dexter Lumis grabbed Austin Theory and took him away. Upon realizing that Theory was missing, Gargano sent Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell to find him. That was the last we saw of them at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day. At the very least, Candice could have played a role in helping her husband retain his title.
In a show filled with long and intense matches, a portion of this 25-minute match between Johnny Gargano and Kushida could have been dedicated to some entertaining shenanigans featuring The Way. That being said, it isn't the worst thing since we got a fantastic match out.
