We're almost there. We're SO CLOSE. And we have so many appetizers to dig into before the main course! The episode of NXT that originally aired on December 4th, 2014, is the go-home show for NXT Takeover: R Evolution, and while other feuds are fractionally furthered and we take delight in various small moments througout the show, it's the final confrontation between Sami Zayn and Adrian Neville that blows us away. Topics of conversation for this episode include:

  • Bayley acting wildly out of character and being rightfully punished
  • Simon Gotch dueling a lion
  • Kevin Owens and the cracking open of the door between WWE and the independent scene
  • The unfathomably erotic thrill of William Regal calling you "flower"
  • Finn Balor is coming with something we've never seen before (is it his dick? How could it possibly be his dick? But also, how could it possibly not?)
  • Character growth, evolution, and the moments in which professional wrestling is at its absolute best
  • Bowser leaves town (and Bowsette arrives)
