There was a lot going on in tonight’s show closing segment on NXT, where the two men who will main event Saturday’s TakeOver: Brooklyn II show with a fight for the NXT title were interviewed by Byron Saxton.
I have to save some of that for my recap, because this was a pretty light show. But what you need to know to enjoy this moving picture from the always essential DTAM on Twitter is...
Samoa Joe, our champion, is both frustrated by what he believes is a personal vendetta against him by General Manager William Regal, and annoyed by the loose style/mind games being utilized by Shinsuke Nakamura, our challenger.
I’ll let you guess who makes which face...
Now that’s a GIF you can get some serious mileage out of. It works if you’re feeling put upon and just about had it (Joe) or mischievous and just can’t resist one... more... whatever (Nak).
Plus, in a couple of seconds and just using their own body language, you know a lot about their characters and why you might want to see them fight.
That’s some good stuff.
