Ever since the announcement of the next Takeover special, I’ve noticed a shift in urgency. That particular urgency is being shown in larger feuds, something this product has lacked in the past few weeks. This episode was a great start for Takeover special, and it truly got the momentum moving.

I do think they used their time wisely to continue feuds, whether it was through matches or promos. Also, it was easy to notice that the wrestlers were having fun tonight in this… Continue reading Black and Blue – Harper and Noble are Family Edition (Apr.24)
