Confession time: Danielle has had one helluva busy week with work beyond wrestling. But never fear, she still got to watch NXT TakeOver: Portland! Banger matches, character progression, story advancement… pretty standard fare for a TakeOver at this point, right? We’ll say where we see all of our favorites go from here as we prepare for the final stretch to WWE in Tampa.
Unfortunately Danielle wasn’t able to see the rest of the wrestling from the week. Luckily Hal (and some interstitial comments to Julian) will help get her up to speed. We’ll get into everything from Cody’s bleeding habits, Nyla Rose’s underrated promo ability, the silliness of the Elimination Chamber and tons more.
The Three Count
