While I expect them to hype old War Games matches. It feels like they are crapping on WCW by making their match only good for NXT.

The tights, the pelvic grinding and the Rude Awakening all delivered in the match by Velveteen Dream WTF?

If I was a betting man, I would be 0-2 with Ember and Cien winning the titles.  Cien could.be fun.

The War Games match was good. Killian Wolf stuck out as the MVP.  He did a coast-to-coast drop kick!

Outstanding TakeOver.  The Velveteen Dream became a star tonight.  I think I liked War Games more than the TLC main event.  Glad that Killian got to look so good after being taken out of the tag title match at the Brooklynn TakeOver.  Did they ever show a replay of the top rope German that busted Wolfe up? 

Too bad the attendance seemed to be an issue for the show, especially during the crowd shot of Asuka, Funaki and Finn.  I would think the Philly show the night before the Rumble will draw well.

Outstanding PPV from top to finish. Velveteen Dream was a star and Black is of course great. I question the booking of aving Cien win the title but if Drew is going to be out for 6-8 months now I guess it all worked in the end.

War Games was a ton of fun and better without the roof. I think people forget how limiting the cage roof was with the old matches, limited the guys to punchy/kicky 90% of the time.

Unless the men's match is 6 stars, looks like Takeover beat Survivor Series.
