X-Pac opens today’s show speaking about last weekend’s NXT Takeover and Royal Rumble events.
He thought the Takeover show built perfectly from start to finish because every match was good, but each match was also able to amp up the intensity to another level. He says the main event between Cien Almas and Johnny Gargano was terrific, and he thought the finish of this match was heartbreaking. He thought it “sucked” that Gargano didn’t win.
He informs that he spoke with Triple H after the event ended, and Triple H told him that Gargano is “…the last of the white-meat babyfaces”. X-Pac mostly agrees with this statement because most of today’s babyfaces display heelish antics from time to time, and it’s rare for fans to get behind true babyfaces nowadays.
X-Pac was extremely pleased that WWE booked Nakamura to win the Men’s Royal Rumble. He points out that Nakamura’s main roster run hasn’t really been great thus far, but it appears that WWE officials are ready to get behind him as a main event talent. X-Pac thinks WWE made the right decision here, and the crowd’s positive reaction when Nakamura won should reinforce this decision.
