    Probably but doubtful.

    This storyline is fucking gold.

    IMHO. Next set of tapings there needs to be some storytime

    Not confirmed but like 98% there but most outlets are reporting Ricochet (Prince Puma) and the tag team War Machine are both signing with WWE and will be apart of NXT.

    I don't really care much for Ricochet (don't hate him, just no strong love) but I love me some War Machine. WWE is getting STACKED with good tag teams. Now if only they could book that division well past NXT

    I didn't get to watch the Gargano/Almas until this morning and figured there was no way it could live up to the hype...

    Wow that was a perfect match. Rivaled anything in WWE history IMO..

    The top of the NXT card is insane right now.

    I'm way behind on my NXT watching. Pre-NXT TakeOver:War Games behind. I still can't understand why they felt the need to lie about the reason Andrade 'Cien' Almas won the NXT title. Not to mention that if Ciampa wasn't going to interfere in the Philly match, then Gargano needed to go over. Doing it the way they did makes Gargano look like a choking chump and there's no way he's coming back from that.

    He left the match to a standing ovation. It was an absolute starmaking performance for both Almas and Gargano. The whole execution was flawless.

    That means nothing in the grand scheme of things. Since Ciampa didn't interfere in the match like he should have, then the wrong person went over. I kept reading comparisons to Daniel Bryan in 2014, but they had no intention of putting him over. Just like they have no intention of putting Gargano over. Unless the fans revolt like what happened with Bryan, your flawless execution isn't really flawless after all.

    Black is allegedly Almas's NXT TakeOver: New Orleans opponent. But Gargano received a pity standing O in Philly so that means he's winning the belt in NO and not Black.....or something.

    Before last night I would have said the best 4 matches in WWE history are (in no order) Hart/SCSA, Angle/Benoit, Steamboat/Savage and Undertaker/Michaels (WM 25)

    In every one of those matches the loser came out of it a winner long term. This match was absolutely in that class. I knew Gargano was "good". Now I know He's great. Last night was huge for him

    You think he's great, a lot of WWE fans think he's great. But those opinions mean diddly squat when the WWE doesn't think he's great. Like I said in the post you quoted, if not for a fan revolt the WWE had zero intention in pushing Daniel Bryan. Just like WWE has zero intention of pushing Johnny Gargano. Not to mention, those 4 matches you listed are 4 of the most overrated matches, not just in WWE history, but of all time. I can't say Almas and Gargano is an all-time great match yet because it's too recent to make such a claim.

    He was just given a 35 minute main event match at either the 2nd or 3rd biggest NXT takeover of the year . That was already an endorsement and a show of faith by the company.

    He and Almas then proceeded to tear the house down in an alltime great match. This isn't arthouse cinema. I don't think we need to see if it stands the test of time. It's already a classic.

    If both Almas and Gargano's stock didn't go through the roof than it has nothing to do with the fact that one of them had to lose. It means something is broken (I don't think it is )

    Also I'm curious what are the great matches in WWE history if ALL of the ones I listed are overrated

    This Gargano/Almas make me a better wrestling fan for seeing this match.

    But for NXT this is nothing new

    You still haven't addressed my main point, only my secondary point. Which you're wrong about, but you're a prisoner of the moment and refuse to listen to reason.

    SCSA/Hart had a better match 4 months prior to their WM13 match. Angle/Benoit is a very good match, but not a top-5 all time classic. Savage/Steamboat has been beaten to death, resurrected, then beaten to death again. If I see another DVD release with that match on there I'm going to go all Wayne Brady on the WWE. Taker/Michaels had a better match 8 years previous. They set the template for that particular match.

    Are done with the hyperbole? It's a good-to-great match, not the greatest match of all time. Anyone who claims that needs to stop watching wrestling right now.
