Matches from NXT TakeOver: In Your House 2021, 06/13

1.NXT North American & Tag Titles, Winner Take All: Reed, MSK(c) vs Legado del Fantasmo ***1/2

2.NXT Title: Kross(c) vs Cole vs Gargano vs O'Reilly vs Dunne ***3/4

Thoughts:

Time for two from IYH.

The first pull was borderline great, six-man action. I appreciated that both the North American and brand Tag belts were on the line at the same time. Reed's teddy bear monster game was well done here and MSK were as fun as always. Meanwhile, the Legado trio were excellent in their own roles. It felt a bit more like a weekly television main event but was still well worth seeing.

The other pull saw The White Rabbit retain the NXT Championship. There were a few minor flaws here and there and thanks to the amount of men involved it was of course a cluster, but damn this was fun. Dunne was even used as a lawn dart, thrown straight at Cole's dick. The four non-NXT champs kept their rivalries going here, taking center stage, as the champ just did monster things from time to time before getting the W. Great popcorn stuff. 

I am pretty sure Kyle is positioned to dethrone KQK.

Both were enjoyable enough to recommend. Check 'em out if you missed out.
