There was a "Better than Batista" chant at Arrival when Emma executed a powerbomb on Paige. That was hilarious.


DAMN RIGHT

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Does anybody know if the 4-way at Takeover is an elimination match or a one fall match?

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Thoughts this week.

My prayers were answered, and Alexa Bliss showed up. That girl is the epitome of adorable. In the ring she's growing, doing alot of stuff you just don't see divas do these days, but she's still a little awkward and hasn't quite found her footing. The good thing though is that it's clear she's learning.

KENTA will appear on Takeover? Fuck to the yes. Here's hoping he does something badass.

Breeze/Dillinger was solid. Not great, or even memorable, but passable. Nothing to say except Dillinger is still generic as hell.

The Enzo/Cass vid was brilliant. We need more of that sort of stuff in wrestling. Nowadays the only backstage shit you see is either Authority stuff or interviews. A two minute video like that adds alot to character depth.

Kidd/Rose was also solid, again nothing memorable. Rose has lost so much presence since he became Rose.

Zayn/Louis was yet again, a solid two minute match. Not even remotely memorable. Highlight was Enzo and Cass showing up at the end to jump the Legionnaires.

Neville/Parker was the best of four way competitors matches. Solid match. Still not memorable, but good enough to put the other three matches to shame. Neville's pops are dying a little, I think he needs to lose the blet next week to revitalize his character.

Main event, Kalisto/Cara VS VaudeVillains was a good match, but once again, wasn't anything memorable. A few botches, nothing match ruining, and Kalisto managed to save a big one at the end by Gotch, but it wasn't flawless.
Kalisto and Sin cara work well together. they have the classic dynamic of little guy and big guy, despite sin cara not being a huge dude himself. Their tag moves are fun, and a luchadore team is something we've not really seen in WWE since Los guerreros. Apart from the occasional sin cara/mysterio tag matches that happened in between mysterio's injuries.

Overall? 6.5/10. No bad matches, but no great matches either. The storylines progressed, which is more than most main roster shows, but the only thing that made me want to watch takeover more was the Enzo and Cass fiasco. Alexa is still the cutest thing on the roster, and we get KENTA next week. Not bad.

This week's is all build for Takeover II, at least the title matches. As far as that goes it's solid.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Great to see Alexa Bliss back on TV! Really enjoyed Breeze vs Dillinger for what it was. Breeze is a star. Having followed a lot of Dillinger's work back to his time as Shawn Spears, there's so much more that he has to offer and I'd love to see them give him more of an opportunity to shine.

Many thanks to CJ for the sig!

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

I heard KENTA was debuting next week, so I decided to give NXT a watch for the first time in a while. Enjoyed the show. The one thing that bothered me was the crowd just seemed meh all throughout. Maybe It's because I watched a PWG crowd right before.

Definitely watching Takeover II. Can't wait to see KENTA debut. REALLY far-fetched fantasy booking, but I would love to see Zayn win the NXT title, then have Steen either standing on the ramp, or doing a package piledriver on Sami to end the show.

The crowd was quiet because it was the last episode of a set of tapings. At that point they'd been there for 3-4 hours.
