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.
NOT REMOVING THIS UNTIL...
