Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Did anyone notice when crowd chanted "BO-RING!" to Bo, he raised his fist and said "THIS IS BO'S RING, THIS IS BO'S RING!!"

BOLIEVE!

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Paige vs. Shasha
I wasn't really happy with the match overall. I've seen Piage go before, and it seemed like she wasn't into this one at all. Either that, or they made it so Sasha's lack of in ring ability wasn't apparent. Then again, I've seen Sasha go before as well. I agree with RUSEV, Sasha is the best heel in NXT, and she needs to really step it up. Maybe have Paige give away one of her shirts to someone in the front row, and have it scripted that Sasha takes it away from them during her entrance. Oooh, that would build some heat. Anyway, the match was flat for me, but dat finisher!



I know it's from the Paige/Emma match at arRIVAL, but dayum!

Unrelated note: I'm still reeling over that move by Charlotte last week. Some kind of running, inverted asai DDT (that's the best description I can think off right now). Crazy.

The Ascension vs who cares
The best thing about The Ascension is their entrance music. I'm not a fan of them at all, but then again, there's no real NXT tag teams that can be used to either build up The Ascension, or make them look like credible champions before they lose the straps. I have everything crossed (and a few things shouldn't - ouch!) that once Enzo Amore is back, he and Big Cass are slated for a feud with these guys. 'Zo and Cass as champs? At least they use tag team tactics, and have moves that utilize both of them at once (guillotine and fall of man). Oh, and that leg sweep clothesline out of the corner was a nice touch.

Mason Ryan vs who cares
What a piece of meat. If Ryan gets called up, I'd instantly put him into a match with Big E. Two freakishly huge dudes going toe to toe. Too bad neither of them has the moveset necessary to carry the other. I still think that Big E should be in NXT. Anyway, your typical jobber match, but at least it showed a few nice takedowns and a pretty good looking finisher by Ryan. I wouldn't be opposed to a Battle of Britain feud between Ryan and Adrian Neville. Two very different styles might make for a good match.

Props to Renee Young for making fun of Tom!

Woods vs. Rusev
I'll get this out of the way right now. LANA!



Ahem. I like Rusev, but that jumping (?!) Samoan drop was fugly!

Unrelated note: Need moar Breeze!

Bo Dallas vs. Colin Cassady
SAWFT! It's no surprise that I'm a huge mark for Big Cass, but Bo does such a good job at being an oblivious douche bag. It's about time Big Cass was made out to be a powerful guy! 6'10", 276lbs. Yikes! Too bad there's no way he could win, seeing how it would diminish the significance of Bo's rematch with Neville. I wasn't a fan of how Bo just bounced back right away after the boot from Cass. Maybe if there was a bit more a build up for his recovery. Meh...

Is it just me, or does anybody else find the "Pocahontas" chants more than a little offensive? Some quick reading hasn't lead me to believe that he has any Native American blood in him, but still...maybe it's just a looks thing and I'm reading too much into it.

Maybe they need to start chanting "Garden Gnome" to Neville and I'll be ok with the Pocahontas chant.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Only thing I got from this show is that I Adrian Neville continues to wear the best shirts. Like, every week he's not in wrestling gear he wears a better shirt that I want more than the last one. GEORDIEELFSWAG4DAYSYO

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

I was impressed by Bo Dallas, he did some decent heel-work and carried Big Cass to an alright match (Cass still seems very green in my opinion but in a tag team he would be fine). He seems very comfortable being the "ring general" and calling most of the action.

If he can tweak his character a little bit and display his more aggressive nature in promos instead of always being cheesy, I'd say he should be given a run in the main roster. I enjoy his character of keeping a babyface facade while in truth just being a cold, calculating and ruthless heel.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

where the F was Adam Rose?

I barely watched the Bo vs Cassidy match. Bo Dallas reminds me of Scott Hall, a lot. Probably because they're similar looking and have similar outfits. Didn't think the match was anything special.

Bo v Cass was the epitome of 'average-at-best versus average-at-best' when it comes to ring work.
Both guys have a defined character. Both guys are good at their character work. Both guys are lacking severely in wrestling ability.

I can't help but compare Bo's "ring general" work to Orton's. When they have the control in the match, it goes from any kind of pace to the most abysmally boring pace. Bo's arm-held elbow strikes are almost as bad - if not worse - than Orton's 20 second stomps and 20 second taunts.

Definitely agreed on Cass though. His character work is great but being a bit too cartoonish seems to hinder the progression of both the character and the wrestler themselves. It happened to Sandow, or at least, I think it did.

You have to realize they are working as a heel. It's not up to them to come up with the exciting moves and comebacks. I thought Bo Dallas did a fine job building Big Cass's comebacks but all Cass came up with was a glorified club to the back and some back elbows. Dallas still sold the stuff fairly well (other than the big boot) and made Cass finally look like a true big man.

I have already seen good matches from Bo when he was put against more exciting talent. Same with Orton and also Corey Graves. They can't carry a face that has boring offense (in that regard they are not really top-tier workers), but they can have a really solid match against an exciting opponent.

If he was busting out all kinds of exciting moves they would be chanting "We love Bo!" which is not the point. It's about time the era of "cool" heels is coming to an end and we are seeing more traditional heel work once again. Of course I do agree that he needs to expand his moveset a little bit and work on his pacing before it gets too boring, but I thought the match was more of an example of decent ring-work vs below average ring-work.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

+ Xavier Wood and Alexander Rusev was a nice match. Also, Lana and Breeze just make it better. Shame the botch of the Samoan Drop and the no selling of Wood of the camel clutch.
+ Bayle's segment with Sasha/Charlotte. The chemistry in all those girls rivalry is really good.
+ The Neville and Bo interview was interesting. Bo is pretty good at being a jackass, and Neville not taking his shit is good.
~ Main event wasn't bad but wasn't good either. The wrestling was boring but the development of their characters was good. The ending was pretty anticlimatic, but is good to see Collin not being a complete jobber.
~ Renee is getting better at commentary, but I don't like her style of shine above the rest.
~ The Divas Match has a really bad timing, really rushed at the end. Nothing special, but is nice to see Paige doing that finisher.
~ Sami segment was a little odd, but I'll wait to see where's land. Same for the Mojo shot.
- The Ascension need to development a real feud with another tag. This squash matches doesn't really help them.
- Mason Ryan can't be more uninteresting. Give him a character for God's sake.

6/10. Decent show, but nothing impressive.


I'm off the chain, time to go against the grain.
I'm off the chain, never gonna be the same

All Time Favorite: "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.


Not removing until:
[] Daniel Bryan Returns to WWE.
[] Bobby Roode surpass 463 days as TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Angle's current record.
[] Kevin Steen, Sami Zayin, Enzo Amore, Big Cass, Vaudevillains, Sasha Banks and Bayley make it to the main roster.
[] Silas Young returns to RoH.
