                    Candice and IO put on one hell of a match, their match was better than the NXT Women’s Championship Match. I like this feud.

                            Women championship match was the only match which sucks on the card. Apart from that, NXT takes over as usual 😘😘😘😘

                                  A down personality for me was all the kickouts in the main events. Still a great match though

                                    NXT gets downs cause the matches aren’t perfect. WWE gets ups cause the matches don’t totally suck.

                                      The women's wrestling matches felt sloppy and slow but everything else was amazing and that main event was 5 stars. Gargano is something truly special and if Vince ruins him, we riot!

                                              I loved watching NXT and NXT Takeover Toronto but I didn't watch it live but after the very next day it was awesome watching NXT takeover on the WWE Network! 💪⭐🏆💙🎉

                                                You forgot to mention that the particular name for third stage of the "three stages of hell" match, which is the "asylum match"

                                                    in the 3 stages of hell match, Mauro says that there's champions advantage then pauses Nigel and him realize theres not and both just shut up about it. Then they both think the street fight is falls count anywhere and they're wrong about that too. I love Mauro and Nigel but if Michael Cole made these mistakes you would have brought it up. Just trying to be fair.

                                                      The main event was crazy and I LOVED IT! The only part that wasn't that great was the NXT women's championship match.

                                                        45 minutes? That Gargano Cole match was closer to 65 minutes

                                                          Please please please at some point can you start doing ups and downs for old pay per views??

                                                            Gargano has nothing more to do in NXT really but one more and longer NXT Title run would be great along with closing out the Ciampa story but if he goes on the main roster I hope it’s on SD & he doesn’t get ruined

I knew Cole vs Gargano would be awesome, if not a little too long, but seeing Shirai come out with this badass heel persona and have a good 15 minutes of them beating each other up was fucking awesome!
