Tonight on NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III, Ember Moon challenges Asuka for the NXT Women’s Title.

Read WWE.com’s preview to tonight’s show below:

“NXT Women’s Champion Asuka is not only faced by a worthy challenger at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III, but one that could spell the end of her historic title reign and undefeated streak. Tonight at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, Ember Moon will challenge The Empress of Tomorrow for the NXT Women’s Title in a highly anticipated rematch. It’s hard to bet against Asuka, who has thwarted every opponent thrown her way since arriving in NXT in 2015. However, there is one competitor who had her on the brink of defeat during their first encounter at TakeOver: Orlando in April. The supremely talented Moon was mere moments away from nailing Asuka with her devastating Eclipse finisher during the match, only for the champion to shove the referee into the ropes and claim victory once again. The debate continues as to whether Asuka, perhaps fearful that getting hit with Moon’s Eclipse would spell the end of her historic title reign, pushed the referee on purpose. Either way, Moon will get another opportunity to try to hit her acclaimed Eclipse finishing move and end the Empress’ title reign. It hasn’t been easy for Moon to get back to this point, having been sidelined for more than a month after Asuka, of all people, threw her through the ropes to the floor, injuring Moon’s shoulder and keeping her out of TakeOver: Chicago. Moon has since returned with a vengeance, looking more determined than ever to capture the NXT Women’s Championship. As for the titleholder, she went on a brief hiatus following her epic title defense against Nikki Cross in a vicious Last Woman Standing Match. The champion made it clear that she wasn’t going to return until a challenger worthy of her time stepped up.That challenger has since come forward, and her name is Ember Moon. Can Moon do what no other woman has been able to and take the title away from Asuka? Or will the NXT Women’s Champion continue her unprecedented title reign?”

WWE.com caught up with Ember Moon and her family prior to the big show to get her thoughts on the biggest match of her career so far:

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    It sounded like they booed Sasha on PreShow

  • I wish I can watch Asuka vs Ember Moon i’m so rooting for Ember! I wish I was aloud to work NXT events outside of FL

  • PhiPhiBanks

    This pre-show has been sloppy.

  • PhiPhiBanks

    I’m torn as to whether I want Asuka to lose or not.

    I want her on RAW working with Sasha, Emma, Mickie and Bayley.

    However, I don’t really care enough for Ember to want her to win.

    • Danny?

      I want a proper Mickie and Asuka feud cause their match in NXT was crazy but I want to see what they can do with even more time

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    This band is f*cking strange

  • PhiPhiBanks

    Becky Lynch kicking off Takeover with her band.

    • Danny?

      WOW Adele looks so good here

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    I’m so ready for Asuka vs Ember

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Zelina ???

  • Don ?
  • Gargano and Cien are putting on a great match damn

  • Don ?

    HOLY SHIT. ICONIC DUO AND DANIEL. :O :O :O Subtle foreshadowing?

  • Billie and Peyton talking to Daniel Bryan?? Please don’t let this be foreshadowing…

    • Don ?

      It was so dramatic how slowly the camera panned their way. xD I was like “What in the hell are they about to show us?”

  • Omg I’m so ready for Iconic to go to SD, where they’ll be appreciated. I could definitely see them vs The Bellas.

    • Danny?

      Icons VS Bellas for WreslteMania is a dream cause lets be honest Bellas VS Team Bestie ship has sailed

    • ssilva872

      I loved seeing them suck up to Bryan. Most seem to want them on SD so I hope it happens in the fall.

  • king valor

    the iconic duo talking to daniel bryan? hmmm

  • Kvngbalor

    Love Thea and the Aaliyah inspired outfit

    • Danny?

      Thea was looking like a straight up bad bitch

  • Danny?

    YASSS The Iconic Duo talking to DB!! Would love to see them on SD and see them start a feud with the Bella Twins starting at this years Royal Rumble. I have this hope that we will get a woman’s royal rumble and it will see the return of Brie Bella coming in second to last with Billie and Nikki already in it then Peyton comes in last with the icons taking out Brie and Nikki only to be eliminated by the winner, maybe Asuka? or a returning Kharma (A dream but very unlikely). That starts the Iconic Duo vs Bella Twins feud for WrestleMaina with the Bellas last match. I think that would be a great way for the Bellas to go out with either a win on the grandest stage of them all or putting over two up and coming superstars. Anyway fantasy booking over. P.S. Corey Graves is beautiful, not usually into tatoos but geez haha, it’s the hair lol

  • Kvngbalor

    I wonder who is the top and who is the bottom in Authors Of Pain … Either way whoever they have sex with hope the lord have mercy on their holes

    • Danny?

      SCREAMING!!!!

  • Kvngbalor

    Nikki needs to go bat shit crazy and beat Paul ass at ringside

    • Danny?

      I’d LIVE!!

  • Match of Year Maker

    The crowd is rowdy for the match between Asuka and Ember. They are ready to eat the whole match! Feed them!

    • Danny?

      I hope the show TF out, their Orlando match while still fabulous felt a little lackluster.

      • Match of Year Maker

        Only a little bit, but was great in-ring storytelling.

  • Danny?

    OMG this show is going OFF!!!!! and it’s only the second match

  • Kvngbalor

    Nikki Fucking Cross ??????

  • Hoooshi

    Nikki Cross has achieved legend status now

  • Nikki DID THAT

  • Nikki is the mothafuckin’ MVP!!!

  • Don ?
  • Kvngbalor

    Nikki Cross is the modern day Lita edgy not scared to take risk put her body on the line for crazy spots she’s fearless and has no issue mixing it up with the guys

    • trishlita721

      What is she doing???

      • Kvngbalor

        She went through a table after doing a cross body to one of the members of AOP

        • trishlita721

          Wow I love her

      • Super Mateo

        Nikki attempted a crossbody on one of the AOP, but he caught her. Then one of her teammates ran into both of them, sending both Nikki and an AOP through a table that was set up.

    • Danny?

      Scottish are crazy trust me haha

  • Danny?

    YES! Now lets get that NXT title on Killian Dain and the Women’s Title on Nikki and see Sanity run wild on NXT

  • Kvngbalor

    Wow Sanity couldn’t enjoy their moment?

  • Hoooshi

    Then why couldn’t any of these white guys take one for the team and help Nikki on her matches against Asuka?

    • Because the way they’ve booked Asuka, she’d probably still win. -_-

  • Danny?
  • Kvngbalor
    • Danny?

      One can hope

  • Danny?

    I’m still SHOOK!! NIKKI A MF QUEEN!!!

  • Kiana Taylor

    Nikki is one fearless chick??? a scary bitch like me could neva!!

    • Don ?

      Haha. XD I feel you. She was literally sandwiched by two big, greasy men.

  • Kvngbalor

    Hideo does nothing for me he’s flopped so hard in NXT he cute tho

    • Hoooshi

      His injuries killed all the momentum he had, a shame.

  • Hoooshi

    NXT keeps signing white random guy after white random guy, I miss the days it seemed to be more diverse.

    • Danny?

      I miss how NXT used to build starts instead of just relying on people knowing them as a big name in the indies.

      • Hoooshi

        Me too! Now it’s just “Look, it’s *insert name here*!!! they have wrestled all around the world!!!” it’s boring.

        • Danny?

          Yup and that’s been NXT’s downfall, even though this show has been amazing. It’s too reliant on oh here is two amazing wrestlers from the indies facing off and thats the story, not proper storyline. That’s my main problem with Asuka and Ember and as a result Ember has no character.

          • Hoooshi

            Exactly! This is why it doesn’t have the same fresh feel the first generations had. The first Takeovers felt like huge events even if they were only two hours, now it’s just feels boring, even if the wrestling quality it’s still top level. The first NXT years had stronger storyteling.

          • Danny?

            Storytelling is sorely missed in the whole WWE nowadays. Once they get that back I see them getting back on track and you know bring back fireworks

    • And each one starts with an undefeated streak

      • Hoooshi

        (the ghost of) Adam Cole is going to be Asuka levels of pushed, I can feel it.

        • Oh girl, it’s coming

  • DayOneISH!

    Damn how long has Hideo been in NXT he should’ve been on the main roster years ago.I guess all them injuries he’s had isnt helping.

  • PhiPhiBanks

    Hideo is the male Emma.

    Sad but true.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Noooo, Hideo is given chances often.

      • Danny?

        #GiveEmmaAChance

      • PhiPhiBanks

        The problem with Emma is that when she does eventually get a match, she just seems to go through the motions.

        I like Emma and want her to succeed but she is her own worst enemy.

        • Danny?

          I need her to give the aggression she showed against Asuka and when she returned after WM

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          They’re are kind of similar with injuries. But at least Hideo gets title shots.

  • Kiana Taylor
  • DayOneISH!

    Hard to believe at one point a guy like Big E was NXT champion and now he’s just stuck in the mid card and tag division.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      He was boring by himself. As was everyone in the New Day. That team saved each of them.

  • Hideo’s been in NXT for THREE YEARS?!?!?!

    GIRL…

    • Bayley was too tbh but injuries hindered him definitely

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Omg i’m watching with friends and we were talking the whole AOP vs Insanity match. I need to go back and watch.

    • Danny?

      It’s worth it even just to see the Nikki Cross spot

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        I did see it but not paying full attention to the match itself.

  • Hoooshi

    If they are bringing one guest commentator for each match watch they bring Lita for the women’s match.

    • DayOneISH!

      Paige for the surprise appearance!!!!!

  • DayOneISH!

    I am for all of this when it comes to these two! They just naturally look good together

    • Hoooshi

      They do! Hopefully they don’t turn into something like Lana and Rusev.

    • Danny?

      So what is there relationship, I don’t want it to be romantic but don’t want them to be brother/sister, hoping it’s just strictly business

    • TorrieTrishStacyLita

      Ok Aaliyah Try Again

    • Kiana Taylor

      At first you dont succeed dust yourself off and try again tease

  • conan_kun

    Will they move Itami to Cruiserweight division and make him face Tozawa if Tozawa retains his title

    • Danny?

      Am I the only one that finds Tozawa boring? I want Neville to win it back and feud with my boo Noam Dar.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Let’s go Black!!!! He added me back on Snapchat. So did Nakamura lol.

  • conan_kun

    Iconic duo vs Charlotte and Becky coming soon on Smackdown?
    https://twitter.com/totaldivaseps/status/899065031765229568

    • Danny?

      NOW THIS A FEUD!!!! Never even thought of that but WOW the matches would be lit, both the tag and singles between the four.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Nah they may be trying to get that call up to SD.

    • Keep it. Neither Billie NOR Peyton are main roster ready.

  • Kvngbalor

    Its time

  • Kvngbalor

    Bayley look so hurt she trying her best to hold it together

  • My link is effing up. Someone provide a link please??

  • Danny?

    Let’s go ladies!! Blow the roof off this place and snatch all the wigs!!

  • Kvngbalor

    Ember you better beat her ass beat Asuka ass like it never been beat before beat the starburst hair dye right out of her head

  • Match of Year Maker

    HHH doesn’t understand…
    Sasha and Bayley made Balor-Owens less than their and Asuka and Ember will do the same with Roode-McIntyre…
    I WANTED ASUKA VS EMBER IN THE MAIN EVENT.

    • Danny?

      If Ember is winning then it should defos be the Main Event cause beating Asuka now is a HUGE deal.

      • Match of Year Maker

        Maybe at Houston…

        • Danny?

          When they in Houston?

          • Match of Year Maker

            In Survivor Series’s eve. In November.

  • Nathan

    What’s happened/happening? I’m stuck at work ?

  • Danny?

    Ember looks bloody unreal!!!!

  • Kvngbalor

    Loving Ember attire

  • Danny?

    ASUKA I’M GAGGING!!!!

  • Kvngbalor

    Im so anxious and nervous my damn stomach hurts

  • Quick question… Who designs Ember’s attire?? Because Nia needs to hire them.

  • Kvngbalor

    Look at Asuka she just know she the shit

  • Come on Ember, pull through!

  • Danny?
  • Don ?

    The Radiant Sun vs The Luminous Moon. I’m ready.

    • Match of Year Maker

      Mood

  • Kvngbalor

    Ember playing no games

  • Danny?

    The aggression I’m loving it

  • Asuka KICKED OUT of the Eclipse?!?!?!?!?!?!

  • Danny?

    THIS MATCH!!!!!!!

  • LOL at Asuka trying to cheat with the tights.

  • Danny?

    YASSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!! What a match though!!!

  • Kvngbalor

    Bye im gone Asuka is basically God

    • Danny?

      Asuka gonna be dethroned by Kaira and I’m so here for it.

    • KingsPromise

      It’s gonna take the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit to hold this bitch down at this point.

      • Womensor

        at this point, Asuka should go undefeated to the MR. And tournament or something has to happen.

        • KingsPromise

          But do we believe with the way the MR women are booked than any of them can beat her? Even the prodigal Queen Charlotte gets beaten regularly.

          • Womensor

            She can be beaten with cheats. Charlotte and Nia both had the potential to be the typical hard top heels to beat, and look at them. One day, WWE will stop this “unbeatable” thing.

          • KingsPromise

            Hopefully soon. I always find myself with a twinge of disdain for people booked into unbeatable roles. I didn’t like Sasha for the longest time because of it.

          • Womensor

            The only one, apart of Asuka, that can look unbeatable is Nia, because of her sizes, like Kharma. But WWE booked her really bad. Actually the hall raw womens dicision is booked bad.

  • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

    I quit

  • Don ?

    I knew Asuka was going to win. I just knew it.

  • PhiPhiBanks

    Yes!!!!

  • They seriously buried Ember

    • Danny?

      Disagree she looked very strong here even in defeat

      • Just wait for the follow up

    • KingsPromise

      Right, I could’ve been more okay with her losing if Asuka hadn’t kicked out of her Eclipse.

    • Dionte Brown

      How much longer can this go on. The entire nxt women’s division is at a stand still. It’s just hella frustrating.

    • PhiPhiBanks

      I would disagree. Ember looked very strong.

      • Now she doesn’t anymore. The whole story was “Ember or no one” and here we are.

        • Kvngbalor

          We never agree but the booking of this was completely shitty Ember got no pay off or revenge from this feud that’s lasted since April

          • Exactly. If they wanted asuka to win they could’ve had her face Nikki in that Lws match and not build up Ember again for nothing.

          • Izzy4lw

            True, but no woman has gotten their pay off against Asuka, which is the entire point. At this point, ember has been built to be the strongest force in NXT who isn’t Asuka, and tonight wasn’t a squash or an uneven match- ember had Asuka reeling, and she looked amazing in defeat. No woman’s credibility is hurt by losing to Asuka because quite simply everyone has lost to Asuka. If anything, my takeaway was that wwe is saving her loss for something big- since Asuka is heel, I expect Kairi will beat her, or she’ll leave undefeated. Plus tonight I saw shades of a heel, so I’d love a face Kairi/heel ember feud at some point.

          • Kvngbalor

            She’s been showing shades of heel since the feud with Bayley like its been 2 yrs something has to give

          • Izzy4lw

            No i meant that Ember has showed shades of something darker than we generally see in faces. Tonight AND at the contract signing- Ember quite simply emoted and got fans behind her; she has up until now been incredibly talented, but a somewhat unlikeable character or one easily thrown away. Tonight looks like it did for Ember what Becky losing to Sasha did for the Lasskicker. Sometimes you don’t need to climb the mountain to come out the better for it is all I’m saying. People are too quick to say Ember was buried or that she was hurt in a match with someone legitimately built to be superhuman. Ember may not have the strap, but tonight was Ember’s true coming out party.

        • Izzy4lw

          But the fact that ember was even considered the only threat, and put up a better fight then Bayley, Nia, Mickie, Emma, etc kept her looking strong in defeat. She won’t be the one to dethrone Asuka, that much was proven tonight, but she still stands heads and shoulders above everyone else on NXT in the pecking order. That isn’t “buried”.

          Personally I think Asuka will either leave NXT undefeated, or she’ll be undone by Kairi Sane.

          • Ember gained nothing out of this loss. If looking strong in defeat was correct then Asuka would’ve lost ages ago and here we are. Don’t act like this will benefit Ember.

          • Izzy4lw

            It won’t, but losing a match doesn’t “bury” someone. Ember comes out having lost to someone who everyone has lost to- literally everyone. But you have to remember ember has literally beaten everyone ELSE. So does ember come out with a title? No. Does this solidify her as a formidable talent who is incredible and can put vets and the horses on notice with her skills? Yes, the crowd reaction said it all. Please don’t act like this will turn ember into a Dana Brooke.

          • What I mean is they literally built her up to be the one and that everything depends on her and then she loses. It’s like what now? For what?

          • Izzy4lw

            To fake us out. They built her as the girl to take it only to swerve us with an Asuka win. Some people may legitimately have thought Asuka would win, but the VAST majority of people were expecting for this to be embers crowning moment, and it ended up going the other way.

            I don’t exactly see how this benefits the division or Asuka even since she’s literally done all she can so her retaining again seemed a bit contrived, but it’s clear management is saving her first loss for something huge. Ember came out of this match looking like Becky during unstoppable or Bayley after her rematch- the crowd was firmly behind her, so I don’t think this match hurt her as bad as some are claiming. I’m going to assume Asuka will not be called up like was rumored after summerslam, and will stay to feud with Kairi.

          • And that’s what bugs me, someone who hasn’t even feued with Asuka will beat her while all the women who were there during 500+ days of her reign get nothing. Basically AJs first title reign.

          • Danny?

            The reaction for Ember after Asuka exited is what Ember gained. A lot more people will be a fan of Ember now cause of the fight she showed against Asuka. I was never much a fan of Ember but after that match I sure am now and I think others will feel the same. Ember isn’t lost she’ll be just fine.

          • But now no current NXT woman is beating her which makes it pointless.

    • Hoooshi

      Ember looked extremely strong, I’d say she was buried if it was a squash, but she gave everything and came out of it like a fighter.

      • The whole build up was leading to her victory and now she looks like a flop.

  • Danny?

    Whether you like the outcome of this match or not this match was outstanding.

  • PhiPhiBanks

    I can see Asuka being champion until WM weekend. She will probably debut MR on the Raw after mania

  • Hoooshi

    Asuka is leaving NXT undefeated, I can feel it.

    • perceval

      Kairi beats her, I think.

  • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

    Who will be a believable challenger to beat Asuka now?

    • Danny?

      Move her to the main roster and she can lose to Charlotte or Sasha or have Kairi Sane beat her.

      • Womensor

        Undefeated, and a tournament.

        • Danny?

          Yes move Asuka to the main roster undefeated. I’ve been saying this for a while now, she is too big to be defeated by an NXT superstar other than Kairi or if Mia gets signed or very unlikely but Gail returns to dethrone Asuka.

          • Womensor

            There’s a lot of women in the MR Asuke has never fight before. You have Charlotte, Sasha, Becky, Natalya, Naomi… to beat her.

          • Danny?

            Yes I’d be here for any of those women to take her down tbh but she would need to relinquish the NXT women’s title

    • Dionte Brown

      Literally no one. Are they going to push this until she debuts? Then what more of the same booking?

    • Wicked Bliss

      She needs to go to MR and relinquish the championship. Shes eyeing to Becky’s chair during the match so maybe she will go soon.

  • ?too litty?

    I AM FUCJING SHOOKT!! A GREAT MATCH!!! ASUKA DESEVRES THIS! ASUKA VS KAIRI?!?! NEXT! YES PLEASE!!!

    • Match of Year Maker

      Oh yeah Kairi vs Asuka at New Orleans, Oh yeah Kairi vs Asuka at Brooklyn next year, Oh yeah…
      Do you really think that everyone knows Kairi? If you think so, let me tell you that you’re wrong.

      • Dionte Brown

        We have to wait until april for her to lose the belt? That’s over 2 years. That’s insane.

      • ?too litty?

        I MEAN AFTER THE MAE YOUNG CLASSIC PEOPLE WILL KNOW HER! SO SIT DOWN

        • Match of Year Maker

          Maybe they will maybe then won’t… who knows?

          • ?too litty?

            I mean the amount of pops she got at NXT Live and MYC makes me think they will.

  • KingsPromise

    I would love at this point for the entire current division to band together to topple Asuka because at this point who can beat her?

    • Dionte Brown

      Exactly!!

    • perceval

      Kairi Sane. That’s who I’ve been experiencing to do it since the MYC tapings.

    • Danny?

      Have Asuka on the MR Monday and Kairi can take the title the takeover at Survivor Series

      • Dionte Brown

        Do you really want her to have the same booking on The MR? It’s going to make everyone look weak.

        • Danny?

          Ideally I’d have her destroy Alexa and take the title and then take on Mickie in a lengthy feud and have her finally lose to Sasha at WrestleMania

          • But knowing WWE, she’ll debut against Nia if she ever wins the belt and bury her.

          • Danny?

            If there is a Shake up after Summer Slam I’d move Nia to SD! to keep her and Asuka on different rosters for now.

    • Match of Year Maker

      I don’t know what Hunter thinks… I’m frustrated with the NXT Women’s division

  • Wicked Bliss

    What a great match! This is why I love women wrestling.

  • Kvngbalor

    So where is Ember pay off? This is the same booking that got Bayley turned on by the fans she was cheated by Asuka injured by Asuka and got no revenge idgaf how good the match was

    • Danny?

      Fans won’t turn on Ember, she just got a standing ovation. Bayley was buried by Alexa. Ember lost to ASUKA in an extremely close match. She’ll be fine and when she gets her mic work under control she will be unstoppable.

      • Kvngbalor

        Where does she go from here back to feuding with The Iconic duo the only heels NXT has? Every storyline in the nxt women’s division is centered around the belt and now she’s out of the picture where do we go from here oh Kairi Sane right well what about Ember

        • Danny?

          Ember lost so it’s back to square one for her she needs to work her way back up now and it’s on to the next challenger. Same happend with Nikki and the Icons but I hope NXT get their shit together and don’t fade her out like they did the Iconic Duo

  • PhiPhiBanks

    Women’s match of the weekend.

    • Match of Year Maker

      Until no see The Boss vs The Goddess you really need to stay quite.

      • Winter

        Alexa can’t give a better match than this.

        • Match of Year Maker

          She can’t but Sasha can!

          • Winter

            Yes Sasha can but you need a good challenger too, however I’m expecting a good match tomorrow and hopefully Sasha take that title.

          • Match of Year Maker

            Hopefully my baby is going to win. By the way if you are kinda frustrated for that, Sasha will carry the match as always…

          • Winter

            That’s a fact in every Alexa match.

          • Match of Year Maker

            I was going to tell you but I came close.

  • Womensor

    When will be Kairi in NXT?

    • Danny?

      After the Mae Young Classic finals I would guess but I’m not sure when they take place, I believe it’s October 18th

      • Womensor

        And when will WWE show the women’s tournament? I read on internet it will be this month.

        • Danny?

          The Bracketology is this sunday after SummerSlam and then I believe the first round of shows will be released next friday

  • Hoooshi

    This was Ember’s best showing and this post match ovation is giving me Becky Lynch losing to Sasha Banks teas, she will be the future star of the division.

    • Winter

      Unfortunately main roster is so different to nxt, there are some factors other than wrestling that make you a star, I don’t like that but it’s the sad reality.

      • Gavin

        You can’t just be a wrestling machine with no personality.

        • Winter

          That’s why I doubt Ember will be the future star of the division

  • DayOneISH!
  • But like, Ember literally NEEDED this win though. WTF is she going to do for the next 4 months while everyone’s waiting for Kairi to wrap up the Mae Young Classic??

  • ???

    I didn’t watch the match , but people praise it ..

    I want to ask .. which match is better , this one or Asuka vs Nikki Cross in last woman standing match?

    • Don ?

      In my opinion I preferred this one.

      • ???

        Interesting

    • DayOneISH!

      This match is definitely the best women’s match WWE wise this year.

      • ???

        Wow ! Seems like a great one! Can’t wait to see the full match on YouTube , I’ll have to wait for 3-4 hours

    • Wicked Bliss

      Thats a tough question tbh i love both matches. But this one raises a bar a little bit higher.

      • ???

        I see

    • PhiPhiBanks

      This was better.

  • Sarona

    anyways asuka remains the best woman on the roster

  • So now the MYC winner, someone who hasn’t even been here for a month, will win the title next or get to dethrone Asuka. Color me surprised ?

    • Sarona

      mf shes probs not losing it until wm which is like 8 months away

      • ???

        That mean TWO YEARS!!

  • ?too litty?

    I am here for the undefeated streak! Like that match had me on the edge of my seat!!! WITH THE CLOSE PIN FALLS! LIKE ASUKA’S UNDEFEATED STREAK HAS EVERYONE WONDERING WHO IS READY FOR ASUKA AND WHO IS GOING TO BEAT HER! I LOVE IT! I PERSONALLY LIKE THE BOOKING!!

    • Danny?

      I agree 100%

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Glad Asuka retained. Ember isn’t ready yet.

    • Super Mateo

      After watching that match, I’m going to have to disagree with you.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        It’s not about wrestling ability. But the way she does promos and her character.

        • Sarona

          her character is inconsistent and barely even a character and shes terrible at promos, she needs more time before becoming a champ

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Exactly

    • Dionte Brown

      Ready for what? She’s arguably the best womens wrestler in nxt. How is she not ready?

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        lol Asuka is arguably the best.

        • Dionte Brown

          Asuka is good but her move set consists of kicks punches hip attacks and a submission.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            She’s the best.

  • Sarona

    its sad how underpaid the women still are even tho they get so much spotlight

  • Leo

    Asuka debuting tomorrow bank on it. She wlll probably be in the SS Womans Match and win. Cause she’s that freaking good. She is the greatest and I cannot wait to see her debut on the MR tomorrow.

    • ???

      How do you know?
      I wish that

  • Wicked Bliss

    Did Ember get a standing ovation after the match? Sorry I did not catch that.

    • Jonny

      She did!

      • Wicked Bliss

        Thanks. She deserved it 100%!

    • Match of Year Maker

      Yes, everyone was standing with a ovation for Ember, and she was crying.

      • Wicked Bliss

        Omg i need to see this. Thanks!

    • PhiPhiBanks

      Yeah. She got a “thank you ember” chant too.

      • Kvngbalor

        From a dozen of fans not the entire arena

        • Aye Mate

          You’re really asserting that only 12 fans chanted that?

          • Kvngbalor

            Yes i sat there and counted by lip reading ?

          • Aye Mate

            You might want to consider other talents then! :)

          • Kvngbalor

            Ok

    • Super Mateo

      Yes, very similar to what Bayley got last year after losing to Asuka. Although unlikely, I kind of hope she’ll have the same result: moving to Raw two days later.

  • “She looked strong in defeat”
    O-mfking-kay, then Asuka could’ve lost at least ONCE by now and looked “strong in defeat”. But nope.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      What

    • Darryl lee

      The same could be said for GOLDBERG.

    • PhiPhiBanks

      Asuka won’t be beat in NXT. Her first loss will be on MR after an undefeated run.

      Ember came out of this match looking strong.

      • Which makes this title reign pointless

        • PhiPhiBanks

          Who in NXT coukd be champion? Ember still needs abit of time to develop her character.

          Other than Ember I don’t that there is anybody in NXT who is at a level to beat Asuka right now.

          • Ember was more than ready. and if they haven’t fixed Ember’s character a year from her debut they probably never will.

    • Kvngbalor

      How many times is Ember gone look strong in defeat we saw this at Takeover Orlando and im over it

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        She can just lose why does everyone need to look strong in defeat?

        • Kvngbalor

          People keep saying we’ll she looked strong in defeat

      • ?.

  • Aye Mate

    The match was excellent, even when the frantic pace wasn’t always so smooth. That section where we were toyed with one false finish after another was straight up some of the best storytelling in wrestling I’ve seen all year. I don’t know where Asuka really goes from here, but Ember came off akin to Becky Lynch’s loss at Unstoppable where her star felt ascertained through immense sympathy. Well done to both women; they’ve just given me my favourite women’s wrestling match this year.

    • Don ?

      The screams from both women after each near pinfall were so chilling.

      • Aye Mate

        Agreed. Ember emoted from the heart in this match and Asuka was, as usual, just magnetic. I don’t know if we’ll get another high profile match between these two, but the result isn’t so bad: Asuka retains her bulletproof mystique and Ember Moon, in defeat, came off immensely more likeable.

        • Don ?

          100% agreed. I see it as a win-win for both women.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      That match did help solidify Ember.

  • KingsPromise

    Side bar: Drew McIntyre is fine as fuck. Lawd help me.

  • Darryl lee

    I say. Bring asuka up to the main roster. Play up the fact that she’s the current UNDEFEATED nxt womens champion. Make her a FREE AGENT. Make the people want to see her.

  • Rosanna

    That title is going to straight to Kairi or after MYC Classic Kairi vs Asuka then Kairi vs Asuka vs Ember.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    The winner of the MYC will probably beat Asuka

    • Match of Year Maker

      Without a build-up? No thanks

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        I’m not saying I want it. But honestly what build are we getting now?

  • Jesus’s brother

    Asuka vs Kairi is the next match at takeover… it will main event and we will the first loss of Asuka.
    Ember will move up to the main roster

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Ember isn’t ready for the MR.

      • Jesus’s brother

        I think she is!

        • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

          She’ll be buried on MR if she gets called up. I feel like she’ll lose all direction even worse than now and get crickets from the crowd.

  • Rosanna

    Soon Asuka is going to the main roster the title will be vacanted thus leaving her undefeated.

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    Bring up Ember

  • Sarona

    its more likely to be that shayna brazzers person to win the tourny than kairi tbh

  • Wicked Bliss

    It felt to me the best ending of any Asuka matches aside from the last man standing match.

    • Aye Mate

      Tellingly, Asuka’s last two title defenses have seen her more vulnerable against her opponents. Nikki Cross and Ember Moon took us to the limits where it felt like, for just one moment, that they could and would end her title reign.

      • Wicked Bliss

        Yes! They are all so good it feels bad to see that only Asuka is getting the push because they all deserve to hold that title.

        • Aye Mate

          There’s an endgame here, though. Asuka’s now at the maxed out point where any title match she has is instantly high profile. I have a hunch that if Asuka is sticking around NXT for a while longer, it’ll come down to Nikki Cross or Shayna being the usurper.

  • Here’s the tea though; what else can they do with Asuka in the meantime?? Like, if she goes to the main roster, having her first loss on the main roster would just be weird; especially after the ridiculous booking she’s been getting for WELL OVER a year. If she stays in NXT, they’re not going to have her face Kairi until October at the least; and her reign is stale enough. Idk if I can take her just sitting there for 2 months with no legitimate opponents. Asuka should’ve lost here. This booking is a mess.

    • Darryl lee

      Make her the undefeated free agent

  • John

    Asuka feels like a legit superstar now. To the point that CF vs Asuka could be a WM main event. Amazing match.

    • Jesus’s brother

      That is why Asuka cannot lose… her first loss should happen at WM but wwe will mess that up and make her lose to Kairi

      • Darryl lee

        How is losing to kairi count as “messing up”?

        • Jesus’s brother

          Because her first loss needs to happen at WM against a bigger star than Kairi, maybe Bayley, Charlotte, Sasha or Becky. One of them could main event WM with Asuka

          • Darryl lee

            They don’t really need that victory. And besides I think kairi would be the best person to bear asuka. You can play the fact that it takes a Japanese to beat a Japanese. And kairi wrestles the same style as asuka. And besides. You can make a new star in one night.

          • Jesus’s brother

            Then you would need another Japanese tondefeat kairi

          • Darryl lee

            She’s the only one available right now. Lo shirai is out with a neck injury.

    • Rosanna

      CF? Lmao, vs Asuka at wrestlemania? Asuka doesn’t work on Charlotte time she works on Asuka time. It’s going to be Ember vs Asuka at wrestlemania or a triple threat with them at wrestlemania?

    • Sarona

      CF v Asuka wouldnt be a good enough match to main event WM

      • Jesus’s brother

        They can do so much more than what we have seen from them

        • Sarona

          CF is overrated, shes sloppy and still green

          • Jesus’s brother

            CF is great when working with skilled competitors: Bayley, Sasha and Becky! Asuka would give her the match of her career

    • Aye Mate

      Asuka is a legit superstar. She is hands down booked like the most prestigious act that’s ever come through NXT; I don’t like how she’s sparingly used, but in the same breath she’s elevated the game through tone perfect performances. In empowering Asuka to the hilt has created a huge opportunity for others to really vibe off her in title matches. It’s so weird, we’re now over 500 days with Asuka as champion and it still feels like there’s more to come. She leaves me intrigued after each title defense.

      • Danny?

        THIS!!

  • Sarona

    embers a great wrestler but shes horrible in every other way

    • ???

      Agree !

  • Kvngbalor

    And anyone who has see Kairi Sane wrestle and not just going off hype and word of mouth she wouldn’t be a main choice to defeat Asuka she can go but she’s no Asuka HOWEVER had IO still been receiving a contract she would beat the shit out of Asuka and wrestle circles around her

  • Jesus’s brother

    I prefer Ember over Naomi any day of the week!!!

    • DayOneISH!

      Why because their both black?

      • Jesus’s brother

        No, cause Ember way better

    • Sarona

      why are u even comparing them

    • Match of Year Maker

      Ssshhh… don’t say that here…
      Remember that anyone here loves Naomi and will grab your ass and throw out it… ssshhh

      • Jesus’s brother

        LOOOL, let they come… im ready!!!

    • And how and why are they comparable? Foh

      • Jesus’s brother

        They have both high flying styles of wrestling but Ember is better

    • Kiana Taylor

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/519b2838a654034ad5dc3b23a75b7f8a6e29ad1e7c16e3955623dba278c3a96f.gif

      Let’s not go there 2 completely different people with 2 completely different movesets naomi has nothing to do with this thread

      • Jesus’s brother

        Yes she has, its wrestling and it’s WWE. And it’s my opinion! Ember is better than Naomi. Period

        • Kiana Taylor

          Your entitled to your opinion just like i am to mine and i disagree

          • Jesus’s brother

            Ok

    • ???

      Ember is way better, Naomi looks weak besides her .. she also became sloppy and not like before

  • Amazing.

  • DivaFactz

    IMO just call up Asuka and send down Mickie James. Let Asuka shine on the main roster and let Mickie carry the NXT womens division. They obviously not using Mickie on the MR, so let her put her talents to use down in NXT. NXT is based in Florida and Mickie lives in Florida so it’ll work for her as a wife and mother perfectly. Mickie can be a tweener and work with heels and babyfaces.

  • Kiana Taylor

    Ember and asuka killed that shit best women’s match of 2017!!! SS is shaking right now!!!
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/55fc169a860ffc43e8c96797bb272b6d5949a9beccc96a3cff1d7a9993eaf5ca.gif

    • Malcolm James

      Did you see Taya vs Hamada

      • Kiana Taylor

        The thumbnail to that video is a bloody taya but yes i have and i was indeed snatched!!!

    • GOD STRATUS•

      Well girl Sasha’s no miracle worker. Lol

  • Hoooshi

    I still think Asuka should leave for the MR undefeated now and the MYC final could be for the vacated title. She is great, but her booking is holding the NXT women’s division down.

  • Honestly, this is worse than Charlogeddon’s championship booking…

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    I low key don’t even think Peyton or Billie are ready for MR. They need split up first. I feel like Billie Kay is hindering Peyton slightly.

    • Jesus’s brother

      Peyton will be good on MR. Billie will flop

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        They need to do more on NXT. Peyton has had one Takeover match..

        • Jesus’s brother

          Alexa had 0 and is doing fine

          • Sarona

            she still cant wrestle tho so idk how fine she is

          • Jesus’s brother

            2 SDL CHAMP
            1Raw Champ

          • Sarona

            and no wrestling ability to speak of ugh a true champ

          • Jesus’s brother

            This is sports entertainment where wrestling ability is not a priority. Get over it! Alexa is one of the best selling stories and that made her a 3x champ

          • Sarona

            wrestling ability is a priority idk why alexa bliss stans keep spouting this.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Yes but people are always saying how she sucks. Her not having Takeover matches could be why people think that.

    • Hoooshi

      They don’t need to split, but they are definitely not ready.

    • I’ve been saying this for the longest; but Indy marks keep getting mad at me. :P

    • Sarona

      they’re so basic and typical its annoying, they shouldnt be a team

    • Wicked Bliss

      I prefer Peyton over Billie but Billie is good when facing good opponents like Ember.

      • So in other words, when she’s being carried…

    • Jonny

      I agree. I wish they’d split and go back to their OG characters, Peyton’s especially was so intriguing as a Poison Ivy-type character but I guess that’s now ruined.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        Yes it was cute. I think Peyton is similar to Emma, and Billie is the Dana. Except Billie is less over than Dana was. They remind me Cinderella’s evil stepsisters.

        • ???

          They are so Lay-Cool

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Not even

    • Rosanna

      Billie hindering Peyton? It’s totally the absolute and no they shouldn’t split up. Billie Kay has a moveset a strong moveset that she isn’t allowed to showcase just yet. Secondly, Billie Kay has more character and charisma and better mic skills than Peyton. But on the other hand Peyton has a very unique moveset and she’s also very young. They have to showcase them together because they’re equal and they work better together. Before Billie was with Peyton she had a winning streak post before Ember takeover match. Peyton has taking more looses than Billie because they never showcase Billie a lot because she’s either a valet or doesn’t wrestle at all. Please don’t say she’s hindering Peyton when there helping each other. Billie needs learn to time more and Peyton needs more mic character development.

      • Sarona

        Billie Kay does not have a strong moveset what so eever.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        Peyton is better than Billie Kay apparently. Although I haven’t seen it just heard Bayley say Peyton was “Sasha” good.

        • Sarona

          did bayley really say that

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            I think it was something like that.

        • Sarona

          shes such a kiss ass i cant stand bayley

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Bayley does kind of seem like she just says shit just to say it.

        • Rosanna

          Where? Show me the receipts.. Because from my understanding everyone has liked them equally.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            I don’t have time for that right now.

  • tstumo

    No one is ready for Asuka!!!… in the NXT division. Great match! Had me on the edge of my seat.

  • Hoooshi

    Roode’s theme music is more over than 90% of the WWE roster.

  • Sarona

    Peyton should be so much more than the typical bitchy heel character

  • Super Mateo

    Ember and Asuka brought the house down. That was an exciting match. That was the best match I’ve seen in a while, and although I was hoping for an Ember win, that takes away nothing from the performance of these ladies.

    Also, props to Nikki for taking a bump from a male. Say what you will about intergender wrestling, but Nikki taking the hit from the guys gained her a ton of respect from many.

    • Aye Mate

      Nikki Cross is amazing. She’s so into her character and even when given something minimal she manages to strike as a crucial cog in the Sanity stable. I hope we see her develop more into a wrestling role, though.

    • Shan

      It’s not even that it was from a male. It was from/between two MASSIVE males.

      • Aye Mate

        It gave me vintage Lita vibes. Even just the way Nikki instinctively GOES for it.

  • Rosanna

    Billie Kay haters on this thread.

    1. Alexa bliss barely had matches on NXT she was mostly a valet but when she did she excelled even though she took looses.

    2. Billie Kay was on a winning streak before post match against Ember. She hadn’t showcased her full moveset yet and she has more character development than Peyton and has better Mic Skills

    3. Billie Kay moveset is a strong moveset she isn’t going to wrestle like Peyton, Peyton is the Venus fly trap on NXT her moveset is very poise and graceful

    4. Billie Kay is the femme fatal she’s going to be very strong have a lot of power moves, moves very slowly but strikes hard.

    5. If you’ve seen Billie past matches before NXT you would know she hadn’t showcased her full moveset.

    6. There equally stop saying one is better than the other.

    • Sarona

      Alexa Bliss did not excel in any nxt matches lmao

    • Sarona

      and she does not have more character development than peyton lmao they have the exact same characters.

      • Rosanna

        No they don’t. There mean girls but obviously Billie is always on the mic half the time and always the one planning the moves or talking first.

        • Sarona

          they have the exact same characters regardless of…….who talks on the mic first.

          • Rosanna

            Femme Fatal Venus Fly Trap from in ring ability too ring attire to attitude and poise. Loook for them things.

          • Sarona

            Venus Fly Trap……. is a fucking flower, its not a gimmick WHAT SO EVER, she just says it, its not a gimmick AT ALL, it makes zero sense. and their characters r the exact same

          • Rosanna

            Lol there not there gimmick is the same there characters are not the same learn the difference.

          • Sarona

            there is no difference between their characters… at all

          • Rosanna

            Sorry I misinterpreted that. There characters are the same there gimmick is different so you need to learn the difference.

    • Actually, Billie and Peyton’s gimmicks are equally terrible; I’ll give you that much.

    • PhiPhiBanks

      Billie reminds me of Katie Lea. She has the look, is good in the ring yet there is just something not there.

      • Jesus’s brother

        She is boring and has the charisma of a door

        • PhiPhiBanks

          That could be it!

        • Gavin

          She is the charisma of that team.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      I don’t hate Billie but I definitely prefer Peyton. But I’m not fully behind either of them.

      • Rosanna

        Can’t provide a receipt interesting.

    • Danny?

      Billie is honestly so fantastic, I’ve seen her stuff in SHIMMER and she is being held back massively and I feel even Peyton is too slightly

      • Rosanna

        This tea.

    • Gavin

      I agree with everything except the first one. No need to bring Billie down by comparing her to Alexa, who stilll can’t wrestle.

  • What if they’re keeping the title on Asuka so she can pull a Paige and hold two titles? WWE would be so petty for that…

  • Hoooshi

    Just imagine Asuka leaving NXT undefeated and going to Raw and losing to Alexa lol

      • Hoooshi

        If there is a god this will never happen, but this is the type of shit WWE would do.

    • Winter

      That’s sadly possible

    • Call Up Asuka NOW

      Y’all really hate bliss don’t y’all

    • PhiPhiBanks

      Asuka debuts.

      Defeats Nia is a 10 minute battle.

      Defeats Sasha in a 20 minute war.

      Loses to Alexa in 60 seconds.

    • Kiana Taylor

      Imma beat vince’s dinosaur age ass and uncreative’s ass if they even think about it

  • Kvngbalor

    People not looking at the full picture sure the match was great Ember looked strong in defeat twice now but that’s not the point we know Ember can go the fans know that but Ember whole gimmick since debuting has been defeating Asuka taking her down she’s failed now what? Feud with Billie Kay & Peyton again in matches we know she’ll win? What can she do now? A rivalry with Nikki Cross random af? The NXT women’s division was one praised as being the best female competitors in the world and Asuka has beat them all a entire division made to look inadequate a entire division that basically is a stand still doing nothing we all know Vince is holding Asuka defeat off to hand to Charlotte on the MR if we really wanna keep it real ?

    • DayOneISH!
      • I think I’ll be sipping that tea in southern baptist.

    • Jesus’s brother

      Ember will most likely move up! She has done it all she can. Asuka not losing the title soon so there is nothing left for her to do…

      • Kvngbalor

        Im thinking the same thing

    • Aye Mate

      NXT’s division has felt inadequate since the Horsewomen were called up and not all of that rests on Asuka’s booking. There’s been a huge neglect in rearing new stars, and Asuka can’t take that blame because she’s been used among the least since becoming champion. We’re only just now seeing the Iconic Duo really clicking as characters but they’ve been treated so poorly as credible heel threats, while others (Ember, Liv, Aliyah) have had little to virtually no character development. Worse yet, aside from her reasonably great showings at Takeover, Asuka’s had a shocking lack of interaction with most of her division.

      So yeah, there’s definitely issues but none of them have to do with Asuka’s streak or being champion.

  • As usual, the word “buried” is thrown around as if Ember didn’t look like a fuck!ng WARRIOR in this match. She may have lost the match, but she came out of it looking like a goddamn star.

    • Aye Mate

      Only a crybaby could dispute this match and outcome. I was split 50/50 down the middle, thinking it would be fine either way strictly depending on the calibre of match. This was easily way into the 4 star territory. Furthermore, Asuka’s so deliciously cocky as the overpowered champion that there is something irresistible in watching her continue to defy tradition in wrestling’s microwave attention span culture.

      Ember Moon is going to be just fine after this performance. She showed her heart here.

      • Ember gained the respect of the NXT Universe and got a standing innovation. She wil continue to climb the ladder of success. The girl is a star on the rise. She managed to come out of a loss looking stronger than ever before. She was not buried. In the contrary: she showed up. Just like Becky Lynch showed up during Unstoppable (a comparison that you made and which I agree with.)

        • Aye Mate

          “Jobbing” and “buried” are often, you will find, technical jargon people like to throw out when they feel their favourites are invalidated. It’s also remarkable that people fail to understand that there will only ever be two outcomes to play: one will win and one will lose, and both roles are essential. And there is no way, under no circumstances, you can call a 10+ minute match full of dramatic nearfalls and false finishes a burial of any talent.

          • Not to mention that losing to Asuka is a privilege in itself :-)

          • Aye Mate

            True! For it isn’t so often that you battle with someone so particularly and specially maintained that there’s even a reward in a hard resisted defeat.

    • Izzy4lw

      Ember did what she needed to- she has been, to me at least, shown as immensely skilled from the start, but somewhat generic/unmemorable; she needed to gain the complete adoration and backing of the NXT universe, and she did that tonight. It always shocks me how people can complain they don’t want Ember as champ because it’s predictable or her character is lacking, so when she loses and puts on a performance that gets the crowd firmly behind her that’ll help build her connection with fans, the very same people complaining about her impending win then say she was buried and that she should have won after her build. :/

      • Exactly. Just because Asuka has been champion for so long doesn’t mean that it was Ember’s time. She’s not quite there yet but she will be soon enough. And if i’m being totally honest, the feud was too underwhelming to be the one to end an historic reign (even though they made up for it with that terrific match).

  • Aye Mate

    I can see Asuka debuting on the main roster with the NXT title in tow, perhaps suffering her first loss to one of the main roster wrestlers. This in turn would lower the mystique enough to feel like her NXT counterparts stood a more likely chance.

    I don’t like the idea of Asuka not being beaten for the title, in the same vein I would have preferred Paige had been beaten for it when she was stripped of it. There are more than enough deserving women who could feasibly achieve the honour of having ended Asuka’s historic run, and it would be a great statistic for that person’s career moving forward.

  • Call Up Asuka NOW

    When Asuka winning I’m really concerned that 1 title will change tomorrow I’m hopeful it’s the SD title

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      That would be best.

    • Jesus’s brother

      I hope it’s the raw women’s championship

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        That makes 1 of us

        • Jesus’s brother

          Ok

    • Winter

      Rumors say that Naomi will be champion all this year.

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        The thing about that is it hasn’t been reported by any credible sites.

        • Winter

          I hope the rumor is wrong, I’m not a Naomi fan but it’s more likely Sasha winning than Natalya

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Not necessarily

          • Winter

            Explain yourself

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        Idc who wins the SD title as long as bliss retains

        • Winter

          Ok dear, I know you’re a Bliss fan, you don’t need to remind me all the time.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            And I know you don’t like her

          • Winter

            But I’m not answering constantly to you

    • Match of Year Maker

      Sasha will be the RAW Women’s Champion by the end of the night.

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        I hope not

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        If Sasha takes the title off of Alexa then why we’re they gonna have Bayley in the match instead?

        • Jesus’s brother

          To take the belt off of Alexa and start bay vs Sasha

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            Nobody wants that though

        • PhiPhiBanks

          I’m guessing that Bayley was probably going to win at SummerSlam eventually leading into a feud with Sasha.

          Sasha wins at SummerSlam as a face and then gradually turns heel before feuding with Bayley.

          Either way Alexa hasn’t really got anywhere to go as champion.

          • Winter

            Bayley was booed again tonight, I doubt Sasha heel turn

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            Maybe Paige comes back , maybe ember comes up , maybe Asuka comes up , or Nikki goes to raw since cena is coming soon

            It’s a lot of ways Alexa can go as champ

        • Probably because they sensed that fans were turning on Bayley. It’s to the point where we MAY have to consider somehow turning Bayley heel to give her a fresh start.

    • Hoooshi

      I mean… She always wins lol I don’t think this means any title is changing hands.

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        I don’t see all 3 retaining on a big PPV week

    • PhiPhiBanks

      According to the latest Odds, Naomi is favourite to retain and Sasha is favourite to beat Alexa.

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        Ugh keep it

      • Jesus’s brother

        Yesss!

      • Guilherme Soares

        i really doubt WWE will have to black woman’s champion, they’re fucking racist if Sasha won Naomi will drop that’s easy…

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    I kind of hate Mauro’s announcing at times

    • DayOneISH!

      He gets a pass for the cardi b reference he made

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        Lmao when

        • DayOneISH!

          I don’t remember when but it was definitely during ember moons entrance I believe.

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            That’s actually hilarious

        • Sarona

          start of match, he said ember is making money moves like the upcoming rapper cardi b

          • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

            He’s so stuoid

      • Kiana Taylor

        Right!!! He had me going “i dont dance now, i make money moves”

  • Jesus’s brother

    Alexa vs Sasha will steal the entire weekend. Just watch

  • DayOneISH!

    I would mark out if Jay lethal pops up at the end of this match.

    • Hoooshi

      More like Adam Cole

  • Sarona

    No Alexa match is stealing anything other than peoples time

    • Jesus’s brother

      Your fave is Tamina?

      • Sarona

        No?

        • Jesus’s brother

          Lol?

          • Sarona

            Yes

      Dead.

    • Jesus’s brother

      Hopefully far away

  • king valor

    asuka is coming for the fabulous moolah’s title reign!

  • Call Up Asuka NOW

    So If bliss wins tomorrow how mad y’all gonna be?

    • Jesus’s brother

      I’ll be happy

      • Jesus’s brother

        *ill be super mad

    • Jesus’s brother

      Ups read wrong

    • PhiPhiBanks

      Nobody should be mad. If Bliss wins then she wins.

      Hopefully it won’t lead into a bliss/Jax feud as that would be Diva level awful.

      A feud and dropping the title to Mickie would be good.

    • Very.

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        So when she retains I’ll just go to other sites who actually appreciate Bliss cuz this is the only site that majority don’t like her

    • Aye Mate

      Not mad, but possibly very meh.

      In terms of cohesion, RAW’s division is absolute garbage to watch. And that’s in spite of more than a few women on the roster being standout talents. Alexa’s one of them, outside of the ring. I’d keep the belt on her for character opportunities right now, but when you watch a match like the one we’ve just seen, it’s disheartening to know we’re more than likely going to see another one which will barely compare.

      Just my two cents of course. I appreciate everyone feels differently! :)

    • Wicked Bliss

      Depends on the match itself. I’m okay either Alexa or Sasha to win. I just need a good match between them. I’ll be mad whoever wins if the match is horrible.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    I can’t wait for Alexa to become the new Trish, and leave all her haters speechless tbh.

    • Call Up Asuka NOW

      I agree her haters are annoying AF

      • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

        I guess they’re justified in a way. But everyone was hyped for her last year why now do they decide to hate on her?

        • Call Up Asuka NOW

          Cuz she’s successful if she was in Emma’s spot all them would kiss her butt and talk about how good she is

          • Shan

            Um, Emma’s a good personality and good in the ring so no. She would not be treated like Emma is.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            I’m not arguing with all y’all again I just wish people would give bliss the credit she f’n deserves for stepping up and getting over

          • Danny?

            Everyone gives her credit for her amazing mic skills but we just want her to improve her in ring skills. I know she can do it but I fear she has become complacent

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            Nobody gives her credit for s**t

          • Winter

            You need to stop already, even I give her credit in terms of mic skills, this is not a war.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            It will Be when she retains tomorrow

          • Winter

            In your mind dear.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            So if she retains tomorrow what are you gonna get on here and say I know youre gonna bash bliss

          • Winter

            The thing is that most of us here are women’s wrestling fans and Alexa is not a good wrestler, that’s the thing, nothing more.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            So because I like Alexa that makes me not a women’s wrestling fan?

          • Winter

            I’m not sure but if you prefer Alexa matches over Sasha, Charlotte, Bayley, Becky matches is strange (I said this four girls but are many others)

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            So it’s impossible to like somebodys character work , somebodys mic skills and enjoy their matches enough

          • Winter

            Yes but probably you’re more fan of a character than wrestling and I don’t blame you, you just need to recognize that.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            No I’m a fan of total package

          • Winter

            Soooooooo you’re not a Sasha fan???????????????????

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            Never said i wasn’t she’s my 3rd favorite

          • Winter

            But the girl has everything that Alexa has and is better in the ring, I still don’t get it.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            IMO Alexa is better in most ways besides in ring

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            I know this will lead to a argument and I don’t feel like arguing now I will have to save that for tomorrow

          • Winter

            Only tell me why Alexa is better for the love of god, I need to understand that.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            It’s all gonna be my opinion that you’re gonna disagree with

          • Winter

            Probably, good night dear lol.

          • PhiPhiBanks

            I try to give all of the girls credit where I feel it is due. With Bliss I believe that she deserves credit for her mic skills, she was the best woman on the MR for mic skills until a couple of months ago when I felt Carmella began to outshine her.

            I like her entrance music.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            Yet Carmella gets crickets and Alexa gets pops but Carmella is better

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            Y’all ignore that she’s popular, over , sells merch , good on mic , good heel , hell I could go on and on and on and on but y’all seem to only focus on the 1 aspect that she’s decent it and completely exaggerate how bad she is

          • PhiPhiBanks

            I just gave her credit for her mic skills.

            However, it doesn’t change the fact that she is just average in the ring. She isn’t bad like Lana but on RAW I would honestly say she ranks 6th overall for wrestling ability. That could improve over time.

            Yes she gets her pop when her music hits.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            And if she is soooooo bad in ring and in ring ability was the end all be all then she wouldn’t be getting pops

          • PhiPhiBanks

            I didnt say she was bad in the ring. I said average.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            Her weakness is being avg at something most other people weakness are being bad at something

          • Shan

            I am not ‘all y’all’ and no one is taking away the fact that Bliss is a good personality. But that’s basically all she seems to be. A good personality and fairly adequate in the ring. Nothing special in the ring which I think is the problem. At least for me. Yet she’s being pushed ridiculously hard and whenever you go on social media sites people (98% men) are glad she’s being pushed so hard based on the fact that, and I quote, ‘she’s so hot/cute!!!!!’. It’s annoying.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            It’s not annoying at all maybe tell other people to get over with fans

          • Shan

            What? I don’t understand how your sentence is structured.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            It’s annoying because you don’t like her

          • Shan

            No. It’s annoying because as great as being good-looking is, I’d rather she be pushed because she has talent in the ring. Not just because they like her face or body. That’s ridiculous. And as a woman I’d rather be getting ahead because I’m talented. Not just because my butt is big or whatever.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            I love how you ignore everything else she’s good at

          • Shan

            I love how you ignore the fact that I’m saying that that’s what 98% of her fanboys are looking at. But please, tell me what else she’s good at.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            Are you really going to ignore that she’s not good at damn near everything and is decent in ring

          • Shan

            I watch WWE for their ability to wrestle and have decent characters. Her characterization is superb but by holding the belt it’s saying she’s basically the best in ring which is my problem. She’s passable. And her getting both belts for so long makes me roll my eyes. That’s all I’m saying. And it’s not that she’s not ‘good at damn near everything’, she’s great at one thing. One. I’m not saying not to like her, like her. Stan her if you will. I just have no idea why people act like she’s the second coming of Trish.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            People can have opinions

          • Shan

            Which is what I’m stating right now. My opinion. As I did before. People would not be pushing for her as hard as they’re pushing for Emma because Emma is good in the ring and good on the mic. She brings both things to the table and Alexa is great on the mic but eh in the ring. It’s not the same.

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            It’s your opinion

      • Jesus’s brother

        Naomi stans are way more annoying

    • Kiana Taylor

      Sign me up on all 3!!! So i can refresh them with my pussy juic- i mean enjoy their amazing wrestling abilities

  • The only thing that could save Ember’s credibility is if she debuts on SmackDown! and beats Naomi for the title. Plus, maybe a heel turn will help her character since SmackDown! is SERIOUSLY lacking credible heels.

    • DayOneISH!

      But what about Carmella with the Igloo azealia theme!

      • Uh, I said CREDIBLE heels…

        • DayOneISH!

          But her theme spells out FABULOUS how credible is that!

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      Smackdown would ruin her too. The “everyone is equal” division is where credibility goes to die..

      • Hoooshi

        But!!!! Everyone needs their The Miz participation award!!!!!!!

      • Jesus’s brother

        Ember would lose to Lana because they are equals ?

      • And RAW wouldn’t?? You know as well as I do that they’d job her out to both Alexa AND Nia without even batting an eyelash. If she hits MR, her best bet is SmackDown! unless they lift the rule banning intergender matches; then I’d say throw her to 205Live.

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          Raw would too, but not quite as bad. Hell I don’t know at this point.. both of them have me frustrated af.

  • Hoooshi

    The only male signing that could actually excite me on NXT would be Kenny Omega, no one in their male division does anything to me.

            Love that! More sports personalities need to be that open.

      • Hoooshi

        for real, making the marks chant for a bisexual man, what a legend

  • ??BADANDBO$$Y??

    damnnnn this match had me screaming , i was LIKE YES EMBERRRRR BITCH YOUR GOING TO WINNNN but then noooo and then that kick i was like YASSSSSS

    • Jesus’s brother

      Banks will end Asuka on WM main event!

      • ??BADANDBO$$Y??

        ohhh that would be dope

      • Match of Year Maker

        I will be crying and screaming if that happens.

        • Jesus’s brother

          Yes!!! Future HOF

          • Winter

            She’s already a HOF.

          • ??BADANDBO$$Y??

            spill the tea

  • Jesus’s brother

    NXT women championship is way more valuable than Raw and NxT combined lool

    • Sarona

      Bc Asukas long ass reign made it more prestigious

      • Jesus’s brother

        Yes!

  • Match of Year Maker

    When the whole arena was standing with a ovation for Ember Moon I was like… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/17e9e96714f3f04fd61e7992927cd2b868fc2fcc2900c1ba57a31884f1520bee.gif

  • Gavin

    What the fuck? It’s not like I’m a fan of Ember, but this shit is ridiculous. Asuka is like a modern-day Moolah. Save the Iconic Duo from this mess!

    • Sarona

      deal wit it, shes gonna have a 10k day reign

      • Jesus’s brother

        She deserves it

        • Sarona

          truly

      • Gavin

        No.

        • Sarona

          Yep, and its 10k more than billie and peyton combined will ever have

  • Sarona

    gail kim needs to return and face asuka idc

    • Jesus’s brother

      So Asuka can retain and teach Kim how to wrestle

    • Honestly, if Vince had her jobbing to trash like Maryse, do you REALLY think he (or the son-in-law) would let her beat Asuka??

      • Sarona

        Look at Jinder mf

      • Sarona

        and vince doesnt run nxt

      • Gavin

        Maryse is the one of the best female heel characters ever. Lol

      • jxs_

        Why she gotta be trash tho?

        • Have you seen her in the ring?? She’s decent character wise, but seriously; have you seen her in the ring??

    • Danny?

      NOW THATS A MATCH!

  • ??BADANDBO$$Y??

    well tomorrow sasha will lose again i’m not even getting my hopes up

    • Jesus’s brother

      the current odds tell she will win

      • ??BADANDBO$$Y??

        they want a huge feud between nia and alexa(rumors) soo yeahhh i guess we’ll see

        • Jesus’s brother

          i checked again and Alexa is now the favourite… damn hope it changes

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          Can’t wait to see those matches.. LOL

          • ??BADANDBO$$Y??

            i’m sooo EXCITED GUYS …… ughh please don’t let me cancel raw again lord please let them do the right thing sasha needs to win

    • Technically Sasha didn’t lose the last match against Harley, but this booking overall is a mess; so it’s a possibility.

  • DayOneISH!
    • Danny?

      Not that tag team with that rip off UNITY theme song. UNITY is untouchable, truly a bop.

    • ??BADANDBO$$Y??

      I LOVE HIM MONTEZZZZZ

  • Jesus’s brother

    OMG!!! The odds has flipped for Natalya vs. Naomi… Natalya is the current favourite to win

    • Call Up Asuka NOW

      Don’t care look at the other match

      • Jesus’s brother

        Alexa Bliss is favourite to win but that will hopefully change by tomorrow night

        • ??BADANDBO$$Y??

          who the hell wants her to win damnnn noooo

        • Call Up Asuka NOW

          Nah

    • Winter

      What are the odds based on? lol

      • PhiPhiBanks

        How much money is being bet. If more people put money on nattie to win her odds will show her as favourite.

        • Gavin

          So it’s basically a random poll? That credibility tho

          • Call Up Asuka NOW

            So far in 2017 the betting favorite has lost 2 times

        • Winter

          But that doesn’t tell us nothing lol. WWE don’t give a fuck about the odds, so is irrelevant.

          • Betting odds are right 99% of the time. I don’t know how this works exactly, but the bookies usually know the winner for a fact.

          • Winter

            But the odds between Alexa and Sasha are very closely so is irrelevant to me. Plus last year the odds are on Sasha side and Charlotte beat her.

          • The odds last year changed at the last minute in favor of Charlotte, right before the show started (If you’re talking about Summerslam). I’m just saying: things could still change between now and tomorrow night, but what you see is usually what you get.

          • Winter

            So everyone are gonna know the result of all the matches before the show start, good.

          • ??BADANDBO$$Y??

            lol , don’t ever look at the odd thingy things change everytime in wwe

          • Winter

            Plus how people know Charlotte are gonna beat Sasha last year? So strange all this shit of the odds lol.

          • I don’t know how this works, they just know :/ I guess people have their sources inside the company or something.

          • Winter

            That’s ridiculous.

          • Aye Mate

            The bookies don’t *know* the winner but they are never overwhelmed by losses either. They merely harness the betting markets because odds are dictated by the fluctuating cash flow which is placed on selections to gamble on.

      • Jesus’s brother

        they are always correct

      • Super Mateo

        They’re based on which side people are placing the money. It has nothing to do with who they think will win.

      • Aye Mate

        Whether it’s fractions or decimals, odds are determined by the amount of money people are willing to gamble. The first number in a fraction is what a gambler stands to gain by the second number they spend. So for instance, 10/1 – spend the right number and you win the left number, plus your initial stake.

    • Super Mateo

      I don’t get why anyone would bet money on a result of a scripted match where one man decides the winner beforehand knowing he totally would change the result just to laugh at the people losing money on it.

  • L.S #PushBillieKay

    Hoping Asuka gets called up & vacates the title for a tournament

    Semifinals:

      I doubt it with Triple H watching her lingerie fetish videos.

  • Call Up Asuka NOW

    Just looked at the betting odds and as of now Alexa and Nattie are favorites to win

    If this stays and bliss wins I’m gonna throw a party

      Who even cares? Just watch the matches.

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

            I know who She is

            Was with Kevin thorn

      • PhiPhiBanks

        There is a section of fans that think that if Sasha ever wins the title again it will bring about armageddon. Bliss must retain at all costs because she is like the best everrrrrr.

        • Call Up Asuka NOW

          So you are complaining about me complaining but if Sasha loses tomorrow you’re gonna complain

          • PhiPhiBanks

            Did you not read my response to you earlier on where I said that I wouldn’t be mad if Alexa won. I don’t care if she wins or loses. It is a tv show lol. I just hope that if she does win she feuds with Mickie and stays away from Nia.

    • Jesus’s brother

      that could easily change… until the start of the show, no one knows who is going to win hopefully Sasha…

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        Hopefully Alexa is the favorite

    • PhiPhiBanks

      I hope the Nattie win isn’t true because that would mean she is getting the Jillian Hall treatment courtesy of Carmella.

      • Call Up Asuka NOW

        I wouldn’t care

        • ThePeaceVibe.

        yes, SDL title match, because it is boring as hell

    • George

      Oh i can see her losing against Asuka or Alexa on raw with a 3 week reign lol

      She never won on PPV, she had 3 reigns but she won them all on Raw episodes ..

      Tomorrow will be great chance for her to win in the first ppv , and on such big PPV

  • Leo
  • Random question… Does anyone know what a heel version of Bayley would even look like??

  • George

    I adore both of this Queens, i wasn’t feeling Asuka losing she’s going undefeated to the main roster. Wins the Raw women’s champion without letting go of her NXT championship.
    Becoming so obsessed with herself until certain someone arrives and beats her…

  • Joel

    The Match was so much better than there first. I’m assuming that Asuka is heading into the main roster undefeated but i just hope that they don’t put her extremely over as to what they are doing currently because it just gets super boring. I just hope that someone debuts or someone returns. Maybe Paige can come back to NXT and feud with Asuka?

  • Gavin

    I just watched the full match, and it was honestly so underwhelming. There was nothing special. The spots were old and done. It was boring until the Eclipse. The crowd woke up for like 3 moves after that, but then the match was randomly over with an Asuka Lock like always. These your girls, marks?

  • GOD STRATUS•

    Moty

  • ?K . A . T ?

    The match was fantastic! The story told was just perfect. Ember is a total star now and I wouldn’t be surprised if she heads to the main roster now. I’m proud of both and their match really should have been the main event!

  • ThePeaceVibe.

    IMO Asuka should have lost or Ember needs to go to the MR and Asuka can stay in NXT. I like Asuka but I’m not looking forward to her main roster domination. It seems easy to go with and rather boring considering they just gave us it in NXT. Ember was the entertaining one in the match for me. I loved the match they had. It came off very technical and the psychology was there.

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    She’s going to kill me one day, she’s hilarious! She’s such a treasure!
    https://youtu.be/yJ9Z9-6LqeI

    Between I love this new format of post-match interviews. That’s totally on HHH’s part who has been pushing making NXT looking more like a sport and that’s pretty cool here.

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      She’s so cute but scary at the same time

    • Aye Mate

      Asuka’s little sound bites are some of the most entertaining things in WWE.

  • Tnn Crs

    Even though the match was fantastic this is really getting boring now… Asuka’s reign is wayyyy too long and at the end she’s gonna lose just like every other champions do and her streak will be pointless. It is so useless, she will probably not have the same booking on the main roster and if she has the RAW (or Smackdown) women’s division will be even more boring than it already is. I have never been a fan of long title reign; it is not entertaining, the rest of the division looks weak, and it make the fans lose their interest in the champion no matter how great she is…

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Just seen the match and all I have to say… when as a peformer, even in defeat, the crowd is giving you a freaking standing ovation the way they just did to Ember Moon, showing the amount of respect they did to you as if she Main evented WM and won the title, well you won and you’ve done your job right.

    Without winning, Ember Moon got elevated from this match and it also gave Asuka’s historic reign that much more of a prestige. Whoever is going to defeat her first is going to reach stardom instantly.

    • Wicked Bliss

      Yaz hopefully Ember becomes more over after this. I remember Becky started getting reaction after her takeover match against Sasha where she got a standing ovation aftermath.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Yes, I have seen a lot of people compare this to Becky’s match with Sasha it very much is the case I believe. This reaction is one any wrestler work for and is dying to have. I was seriously blown away by but not surprise because this match really stole the show.

  • I’m so over asuka now when will her reign end surly I can’t be the only one getting board of her… I reckon only reason she hasn’t lost the belt is cause WWE have no idea what to do with her

    • Jesus’s brother

      The only reason why she hasn’t lost the title is because NO ONE IS READY FOR ASUKAHHHH

  • NoWayHoeSay

    They done the same spot that Sasha Nia done on Raw but it was better lol.

  • NoWayHoeSay

    You know that mma girl is gonna beat asuka

  • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

    Ember Moons man…?

  • Can’tGetNo…Stratusfaction

    Honestly, the only way for Asuka to go to the main roster is as THAT bitch. Even with the NXT title still in her possession. Whoever beats her is going to get one hell of a rub, so hopefully the right person is chosen to have that epic feud with her. I feel like they’ll end up pitting her against Charlotte, but she definitely doesn’t need that win to her credit.

    I feel like all of this is a setup for an Ember heel turn, but we’ll see.

  • Raleex2

    Asuka just became the second longest reigning champion in history, only behind the Fabulous Moolah. Is someone doubts her skill and her appeal to the wrestling fans in general… they’re simply blind or deaf.

    There should be no question about how WWE will treat her in any brand after such accolade.

  • ???

    Just watched the match , OMG I said Ember and Asuka don’t have chemistry but last night they proved me wrong !!

    I loved the match , new moves , good storytelling, strong build-up for Ember she looked hell strong and she became more over than ever .. Asuka’s submission moves were unique and not just those basic submission that others use ..

    BEST WOMEN’S MATCH this weekend , Even the Raw & SD women championships matches will not be better than this one I’m sure of it!

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    Asuka probably isn’t getting called up anytime soon.
    https://twitter.com/coupdebanks/status/899301337942286336

    • Raleex2

      When Asuka gets in the main roster, she’ll probably be champion in her first day.

  • MK126

    Asuka and Ember did THAT! This match was way better than TO:Orlando and Ember definitely looked great even for her loss. At this point Asuka should really go to the MR with the title since shes beaten everyone down there. I dont think they’d have the MYC winner beat Asuka but i dont think many of us thought Asukas reign would be this long. I can see Ember going to the MR relatively soon. This match reminded me of Bayley when she lost to Asuka on her quest to regain her championship. So if Ember were to show up to RAW/SDL this week i wouldnt be surprised. ID talking to Daniel was great. I can see them doing well on SDL. You dont need to win the NXT titles to be successful on the MR so i dont think it matters of Ember or ID wins the womens title of Asuka

  • This was an amazing match. But where do we go from here. At this point Asuka V Ember III would be pointless. Asuka already kicked out of the midst devastating looking women’s finisher since the widows peak. Does Asuka get the call? Does Ember get the call? Because honestly those two proved last night that no one else on NXT is built or looks anywhere near strong enough to compete with them. Which could lead us to the slump that happened after Nia Carmella and Alexa left. Unless they plan to bring in a slew of the MYC competitors.
    There’s nothing left for Asuka and Ember in NXT. I don’t Ember will ever get the kind of ovation and reaction she got after losing to Asuka. Even if she beat her later on…Call them up. They’re ready, we’re ready.
