What do you guys think of the show? Here's my ratings.

Austin Aries vs. No Way Jose
5.75/10 - Decent to good.

Billy Kay vs. Ember Moon
5.50/10 - Surprisingly good, but way too short.

Bobby Roode vs. Andrade Almas
7.75/10 - Andrade was underrated as fuck for his performance here.

The Revival (c) vs. Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa
9.25/10 - God damn, dat match. The ending was a slight bit of an annoyance, because he could've easily grabbed the rope, but I think that was just small fuck-up with ring positioning and they were supposed to be closer to the center of the ring than they were.

Asuka (c) vs. Bayley
8/10 - As usual, a great Women's Championship match in NXT.

Samoa Joe (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamure
8.25/10 - Shinsuke may have actually murdered Joe at the end.

Overall Rating: 7.50/10

I'll up it to 7.75/10 though, for Bobby and Shinsuke's entrances. Not amazing, but still a very good show. The tag match definitely stole the show for me. Ember's finisher is great, too. I'm expecting SummerSlam to beat it, because that's a fucking stacked card, but we'll see.

This weekend did a good job of reminding us that TNA mishandled talent worse than we realized. Bobby Roode has only been in WWE for like 2 months and is more over than he was during his entire time in TNA, and asking AJ to take a pay cut and then watching him go to Japan and then WWE to become one of the best wrestlers in the world. #FeelTheBern

TNA should have raided Ring of Honor. Instead they decided to let WWE do that and sign their rejects instead.

Austin Aries vs. No Way Jose
I liked this. Nothing special, but enjoyable enough. No Way Jose's theme is so catchy, by the way, I saw him wrestle twice in the space of about a week, and both times I went away with it stuck in my head.

Billy Kay vs. Ember Moon
We didn't get to see much of Ember here, really, but that finisher of hers was awesome. I quite like Billy's new evil opera thing too.

Bobby Roode vs. Andrade Almas
Bobby Roode's theme is my new ringtone. Good match, both guys came out looking good.

The Revival (c) vs. Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa
Excellent. MOTN, for me, and it had competition. I'm sure Moose will correct me, but I don't remember Gargano and Ciampa being this good when I saw them in CHIKARA or ROH. They were good, but this past month they've had the best CWC match, and the best NXT match. They're killing it right now.

Asuka (c) vs. Bayley
Great match. In WWE's new "divas revolution" thing, Asuka stands out as being the best. I think she's the best women's wrestler I've ever seen (although to be honest I don't watch any Joshi stuff, so there may be better).

Samoa Joe (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamure
I said this on Twitter: I've seen some great wrestlers live. I have never had the same feeling of "this guy is a star" as I've had when I saw Shinsuke make his entrance in Liverpool. That was compounded when I saw this match, especially the entrance which was cool as fuck. Joe's awesome as well, I keep forgetting how good he is on the mic, he's super intense. Match was awesome.

Overall, this was a really good show, with three top quality title matches.

Pretty much agree with what was said here.

I keep on feeling bad for the main roster to "follow up" such an amazing NXT event though. Summer Slam wasn't nearly as good, sadly, even though the card was awesome and the matches were indeed quite nice! But NXT ... geez, it's something else.
