I still don't see why he hasn't been moved to 205 Live. He's going to put on great performances regardless of where he is, but he just seems kind of in no-man's land in NXT right now.

If I was booking 205 Live, Gargano would've been the one to beat Neville. And when Ciampa returns, the two could have their big payoff feud on 205 Live for the Cruiserweight Championship (maybe even at Mania).

That's obviously not going to happen, but like you, I'm very interested to see what happens with Gargano.
Because that is a death sentence.

Also, NXT money match is Gargano and Ciampa...they aren't blowing that by putting this guy on WWE TV at this point. That match could very well headline Mania Takeover.
They're going to have to swing things around pretty quickly then. I know it's only one "kinda feud" so far, but if Gargano keeps putting guys over in NXT, there's no way they'd have him main event anything regardless of opponent. The death sentence comment seems to have some legs though as it sounds like the atmosphere of 205 Live isn't the most positive right now. First Aries, now possibly Neville. Ugh...that's a lot of talent gone..

You can heat up Gargano any time, IMO. If he puts over a guy here or there before its time to pop him in the microwave for Ciampa, its ok. After the Ciampa match/feud, he could be white hot and you could shoot'em to the moon. Anything he is doing now, is just treading water.

Yeah, Gargano's pretty much teflon. He's the new Zayn, him losing for a while only adds to the lore when he eventually turns it around.

Having him beat up goofs like Tino and the long haired one keep him warm, but if they are elevating up the card like CIEN, I don't see anything wrong with Gargano taking an L due to some modest fuckery or even a clean loss as he "bounces back from injury".

The pre sale for Takeover War Games sold out. Not sure how many tickets that means, but usually pre sales are for lower bowl only.

Gargano/Almas > Strong/McIntyre

CIEN continues to be one of the Top 5 wrestlers in the WWE.

Its a shame he has no heat and people sit on their hands for him. He's really working his ass off.

Give him a televised match in Mexico against Reigns. That'll do the trick.

I thought things were pretty hot for the main event, and Cien in particular this week. I think Vega is perfect for him. NXT is getting so good again. It really makes you realize how underwhelming the trio of Samoa Joe, Shinsuke, and Roode was for the past yr or so.

I LOVED the Strong/Almas match, and I'm more into Black/Dream than anything else in WWE right now. I think Takeover San Antonio is gonna be pretty great, not just because of the matches. I mean the matches are always good, but this show has some excellent builds going into it.

Would anyone be opposed to Itami vs. Gargano being added to Houston?

Easy booking: Itami crashes the show and says he’s entitled to a big match. Open challenge made. Gargano answers.

I wouldn't be opposed to it, but that could be a really big match. I'd like some build for it personally.

Honestly with how stuffed the NXT roster has gotten, they should maybe consider making the Takeovers a bit longer so they can add more matches for the show.
