X-Pac 1, 2, 360 Recap – No Issue With the Bully Ray Story, What Did Triple H Text Him Following Takeover? Is There A Power Struggle Between Triple H and Vince McMahon? More!
The show continued it’s momentum with the Women’s Title match between Shayne Baszler and Io Shirai. X-Pac really enjoyed this match as well. He admits that it can be a bit tough having to watch all these great matches and then go to the Performance Centre and try to coach these talents. He loved the finish to the match, as well as Shirai’s post-match beatdown.
He adds that Bazsler is “so great”, calling her his favourite female wrestler in the world right now. He adds that she’s the greatest NXT Women’s Champion of all time.
The main event of the evening saw Adam Cole defeat Johnny Gargano in another terrific match. X-Pac texted Shawn Michaels after the match and told him that this match had his fingerprints all over it. He notes that producing these matches gives Michaels a great sense of accomplishment. X-Pac thought this was a “masterpiece of a match”.
X-Pac thought the Title switch was the right call here. Some critics have said that these two men didn’t sell enough during the match but X-Pac disagrees entirely, noting that they sold their asses off. He points out that selling is all about hearing the crowd reactions and knowing how long to stay down. Just because their actions don’t look like the classic definition of “selling”, that doesn’t mean they aren’t selling.
