– Here are some off air notes from last night’s NXT Takeover event.:

* Stephanie McMahon and her daughters were sitting in the first row all night watching the show.

* Matt Riddle got a huge pop and a “Bro” chant before he was even seen on television.

* For those who asked what the big pop in the middle of the Velveteen Dream vs. EC3 bout was, WWE had turned off the video screens above the ring at the start of that match. Fans began chanting “Turn the screen on” and when WWE realized what the chant was and obliged, they got a huge pop.

* In what was probably the oddest reason for an “ECW” chant in history, Brooklyn began chanting it after the ring mats on the floor outside the ring were pulled up during the Last Man Standing match.
