This week on Sean Waltman‘s Podcast, X-Pac weighs on the happenings on this past Saturday’s WWE NXT TakeOver: WarGames 2019 event.
Waltman’s team sent the following transcribed highlights from the episode to eWrestlingNews. You can hear the full episode on YouTube (embedded above) or via the links at the bottom of this post:
Sean Waltman on Matt Riddle vs Finn Balor:
You can’t just bring everybody over and just beat everybody and just to try and say see our NXT guys are on the same level. It’s Finn Balor if you’re gonna lose a match, Finn Balor is just fine to lose a match to, I don’t really think this fucks with Matt’s momentum or anything. They had a great match and I am ready for more of Balor and Matt Riddle. That’s what makes you care about the match, like okay, none of these guys can really afford to lose. It was hard to call, I had no idea, no idea which way they were gonna go with that. I guess if I had to put money on it honestly I would have said, okay they’re going to out Balor over, because I think they are trying to get him ready for Adam Cole, maybe?”
Sean Waltman on the big winners this weekend from the NXT Roster:
“Keith Lee really stood out to me in this match he did a lot of really cool stuff in the match and it fit. To me of this recent last couple of weeks, Rhea Ripley and Keith Lee are the big winners, the biggest winners, everyone’s a winner, but to me, those two are overnight sensations.”
