We open with highlights of the excellent main event from two weeks ago, where Buddy Murphy and Mustafa Ali’s tussle was interrupted by Hideo Itami.  It’ll hit the fan this week, grapple fans, as tonight all three combatants will tussle in a triple threat match.  Let’s get to it!

We are 5 days removed from Oil Rumble, grapple fans, and Cedric Alexander is still the Cruiserweight Champion, having bested the winner of last week’s gauntlet match, Kalisto in Saudi Arabia.  What does 205 Live have in store for us this week?  Let’s find out!

Time for another week of cruiserweight action, grapple fans, as 205 Live is seemingly entirely unaffected by the ‘Superstar Shakeup’.  The hype video focuses on tonight’s tornado tag match between Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik and Hideo Itami & Akira Towawa.  Let’s get to it!

Commentators: Nigel McGuinness, Percy Watson, Mauro Ranallo

There’s a lot going on around NXT at the moment but the big story is the status of Asuka and the NXT Women’s Title. While still undefeated, Asuka has suffered a broken collar bone, which would keep her on the shelf for a long time, though she’ll be here tonight. Other than that we have Adam Cole, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly as the ROHNWO. Let’s get to it.

With just over two weeks to go to before Takeover: Brooklyn III, it’s time to get some things moving. We already have a lot of the card set so now we can focus on building up what’s already announced and set up some other stuff. Tonight the main focus seems to be on Aleister Black, who currently doesn’t have a match for the big show. Let’s get to it.

With less than a month to go before Takeover: Brooklyn III, it’s time to start getting things ready for the biggest show of the year. We already have the NXT Title match set as Drew McIntyre will challenge Bobby Roode for the title but we need a bit more than that to fill out a card. Let’s get to it.

The title shows continue as we have the NXT Title on the line tonight. Bobby Roode has gotten far underneath the skin of Roderick Strong, including talking about Strong’s wife. The title is up for grabs tonight with a ticked off Strong wanting both the title and a measure of revenge. Let’s get to it.

It’s a new taping cycle here and that means a major change in the commentary team. This time around Mauro Ranallo has taken over the lead play by play role which should help for tonight’s main event. Tonight, Asuka defends her Women’s Title against Nikki Cross in a Last Woman Standing match. Let’s get to it.

Tonight is, in theory at least, all about Bobby Roode, who promised to show up for a Championship Celebration. Then again he said the same thing last week and had more important things to do. Teasing the crowd like that is far more effective of a heel tactic than a lot of them you’ll see so it’s not the worst idea. Let’s get to it.

Takeover: Chicago

Takeover: Chicago

Location: Allstate Arena, Chicago, Illinois
Commentators: Nigel McGuinness, Tom Phillips, Percy Watson

How did we not get here before? If there’s one town that seems perfect for one of these things, it’s Chicago. We have a five match card here and thanks to the addition of the United Kingdom Title match, four of those matches are for titles. The card might be a bit predictable as is usually the case with Takeover but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing. Let’s get to it.

Went to the NXT House Show – Highland Heights, Kentucky

I took in the NXT house show tonight in Highland Heights, Kentucky (basically Cincinnati) at the BB&T Arena on the campus of Northern Kentucky University. NXT was at this same arena about nine months ago and they’re already back, though after how things went tonight, I don’t know if there’s going to be a third show.
