Former TNA Champion James Storm was backstage tonight in Orlando. The Tennessee Cowboy left TNA a few months ago. He was spotted at last week’s NXT live Event in Nashville. However Storm would later deny these claims on Twitter. Very interesting.

Notes from Takeover from PW Insider:

The dark match before the show saw Bull Dempsey (with new music) defeat Sawyer Fulton.

– There were 4 new shirts available at the show :
– A “We Are NXT” shirt
– A Takeover shirt, specific to the event, with Sasha and Bayley on it
– A Dusty Rhodes Tag Classic shirt with the tournament logo on front and the brackets on back.
– A Dusty Rhodes Memorial shirt with a picture of him in the front and “The American Dream will live on” on the back.

– I don’t know if they showed Stephanie’s reaction when Sasha stole the headband from Izzy, but the “Oh S**t” look on her face was priceless.

– After most of the talent had left and the 4 Horsewomen were hugging, Sasha went over to Izzy and handed her the bouquet of flowers to apologize and they exchanged a fist bump.

– Overall, it was an awesome show and a very lively crowd. We were encouraged by Gregory Hamilton before the show to be loud and show the world why Full Sail is the home of NXT.
