Edge and Christian open today’s show by speaking about last weekend’s Hall of Fame ceremony. Christian says he has no idea what the guy who attacked Bret Hart was thinking. He notes that wrestlers always stick up for their own, and this was evident last weekend. Other than that unfortunate event, he thought the show was good and had a lot of great speeches.
Getting into their thoughts on NXT Takeover, Edge says he went to the show and had so much fun. He loves going to NXT shows because it’s very invigorating to be around. Nobody is angry or jaded, and everyone is hungry and determined to make an impact. Edge’s only concern with the physical NXT style is the longevity of some of the performers.
Edge thought Takeover got off to a great start with the War Raiders versus Aleister Black and Ricochet. He thinks the War Raiders and their entire presentation are so much fun. Christian notes that the varying styles of both teams made for a terrific match.
Edge thought that match would be though to follow, but then Matt Riddle and Velveteen Dream went out and had an entirely different match. He thinks Riddle is money and he loves his fire. He and Christian agree that the big money with Riddle might be in his eventual heel turn.
