Go see it! I think Ibushi and ZSJ will definitely be amazing.

Makes sense, too. Given that Cena's main roster debut match was with Kurt.

I must admit I hadn't thought of that. I was just thinking it would be another part-timer that wouldn't be hurt by a loss if they wanted to send Angle off with a win, and would free up full-time talent for other matches (though it would be an opportunity for Angle to put someone over as well). That'd be a cool bookend though, especially if Cena goes over.

Yeah, I got no problem with that, either. Although I do hope they set up the program now as we're just a few weeks away.

Interesting to see that WWE produced a Chronicle episode for Ambrose (though I haven't watched it yet), so I'm still on the fence to believe whether he's really going or not.

Meanwhile on NXT, Ricochet and Aleister Black defeat DIY in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Gargano feigned a knee injury so that he won't tag back in when Ciampa needed him to, Ciampa ended up eating a Black Mass and a 630 from Black and Ricochet.After the match, Candice ran down to pick Johnny up, but Ciampa joined in carrying Gargano to the ramp. Gargano fell but Ciampa helped him up in what could be a replay of his heel turn back in 2017, but Johnny reveals that his injury is a ruse and threw Ciampa to the LED board instead and hitting him with superkick afterwards.

Shame that Ciampa got injured and went under the knife as I think the payoff for this long storyline ends at Takeover. But they could use this to write him out.

And with the final set of NXT TV tapings done before Wrestlemania weekend, the NXT Championship was vacated,Gargano was named one of the two #1 contenders,and Adam Cole own a Fatal 5-Way to face Gargano in a 2-out-of-3 falls match at Takeover.

Probably going to be a bait and switch. If they do go down that road without any twists, I reckon he'll defeat Corbin, and Corbin will end up being repackaged.

Still hoping they'd go with Cena instead.

I'd prefer that too.

I don't know what to make of the situation with Kofi. It's obviously going to be him and Bryan at Wrestlemania, and the point is that he has to overcome adversity to get the spot, but it feels like they're putting too many twists and turns in the angle. Also, the fact that it's Evil Mr. McMahon screwing over a competitor for the umpteenth time just because he's evil, and the fact that he did this in the RAW Women's Championship this year already, makes it feel really stale. I feel like there is going to be a cathartic ending - maybe the roster goes on strike in support of Kofi? - but it's still a bit convoluted. It's also a re-tread of Bryan's own story from 2014, though it's funny how he's now the person calling his opponent a B+ Player. That alone gives the angle some legs via an interesting twist.

Nice to see The IIconics get a victory. They really deserve a run with the belts. Sasha is not good as a face.

I like the Kofi angle, although I'm afraid it would all just fluster if they don't put the title on Kofi (furthering the long-time rumors on Vince not wanting to have a black WWE champion); I'm also a bit baffled that Bryan would just do Vince's bidding since his Planet's Champion character is supposed to hate the corporate machine.

But to be honest, I'm more invested in the Kofi storyline more than Becky's.

Becky's angle was a wide open slam dunk, and somehow they've managed to dribble it off their foot and out of bounds.
