They're putting him on the backburner by having him win a match against a main roster talent?

Eh, the board breaking wasn't the thing that made him interesting really, for me it was his combination of power & speed that he brought that made him stand out. I do think he needs a manager, but Lana isn't really doing anything for me... I'm not a huge fan of extended promos in foreign languages & as a mouthpiece, it makes even less sense. Shouldn't she solely be speaking English to translate for him? It's a weird dynamic that hasn't clicked yet for me. I actually thought that Lefort would be a better manager for him, as long as he dropped all of the "Monayyy" shtick that he's done so far. If they had Lefort be a slimeball who just uses Rusev to hurt people he doesn't like & maybe collect bounties, that would have been better.

But really, let's just tell it like it is and who should REALLY be his manager - His name is... ARMANDO. ALEJANDRO. ESTRADA!

^Exactly this. It's a shame Enzo got hurt when he did, but I hope they hold off Big Cass from the main roster until Enzo is healthy. As a tag team, those two are comedy gold and could be a big deal on the main roster if they're given mic time & allowed to be themselves.

Yeah it's not the board breaking per se (even though I really enjoyed that) but how he acted in general. Rusev to me is not someone who should be controlled by anyone, much less a blonde model who isn't even that good at her job. Meltzer think she's got something special, for some reason I can't comprehend, but she does nothing for me.

This crazy brute controlled by a manager has been done so many times, from Vader and Cornette to Umaga and Armando Alejandro Estrada (even Brock and Heyman, though the dynamic with those two is a bit different) that I'm just tired of it.

To me, they're what makes NXT so good. Characters being themselves & feeling natural.

This wasn't a strong show in terms of star power.


First of all, who the fuck was the ring announcer? She might as well announce that someone died with her somber voice. Seriously, she brought people out with ZERO ENERGY. She announced like she was at the morgue.


Big Cass/English was too short
Bayley/Summer was good for a divas match. Again, these 2 play up their characters pretty well. Summer got heat for knocking off the headband.
Oh right, I completely forgot that Rusev beat Woods. Yeah. There was on impressive spot before Rusev put him in his finisher. He ran over Woods in close distance.
I can't get a good feel on Baron Corbin but... Not really impressed. Again, this is a sample size but he didn't really show anything positive
As for the main event... That's the best match The Ascension has had to this date which isn't saying much since like 70 percent matches have been squash no names.

It was an okay episode for the secondary wrestlers.

The crowd making fun of Connor during the main event was fucking great.

NXT. IS. YAAAAAAH!

Bayley v. Summer Rae was Yahh!
Tyson Kidd v. Clone Man Punk was 1 and a 1/2 Yahh!
Xavier Woods v. Rusev could of used more Yahh!

and the Ascension v. The Barrio Brothers was a chock full of YAAAAAH!

I give this whole damn episode a Yaaah! out of Yaaah!

I liked this week, but I feel like this episode highlighted for me why I really wish NXT would move to 2 hours - because there are so many people to focus on, we got a whole episode where we didn't get to see any of Bo, Sami, Kruger, Paige, and Emma, barely any Breeze/Neville, and that's not even to mention injured guys who would be getting time like Enzo and Graves, or new guys who we want to see debut and are probably ready like Kalisto, Randall, and Crowe. I know that's part of what makes NXT good - guys aren't over exposed and they leave you wanting more rather than beating you over the head with shit til you want it to go away - but I don't wanna go 2 or 3 weeks at a time without seeing several of the top guys, you know? They have the roster depth to expand to another hour, then we could get longer matches too, it's a win for everyone.

Back to tonight's show - opener was good, great to see Bayley finally get a singles win!

I wish Cassady/English had been a little longer, it was only okay, but this only seems like the beginning of their feud, and I'm happy that English is being used in an actual feud now. He is still the best heel on NXT for me in terms of eliciting the "god I hope someone punches this fucker" reaction from me, so I am looking forward to a nice feud ending in Cass cutting off one of English's annoying songs by kicking his ass, or whatever (hoping it ends that way anyway).

Woods vs. Rusev was interesting, they are really pushing Rusev hard, I'll be interested to see if he beats Kofi in their rematch. The Neville/Breeze interview to set up a match next week was a natural following the events of the title match, and I'm looking forward to the match because we still haven't really seen an actual good long match from Breeze yet. He was brilliant as always in the interview (although that last line was a bit cheesy), and Neville seems to be getting better.

Didn't enjoy the Kidd/Corbin match so much, Kidd is a good wrestler and all but I've always found him fairly bland and unappealing and he doesn't belong in NXT anyway, give him a match against some jobber on Superstars instead and save this time for any one of those guys I mentioned above I'd like to see more of. Corbin seems pretty boring, Aiden English was interesting when he was a jobber at least, but then again Breeze/Mike Dalton wasn't, so who knows maybe one of these days he'll bust out some real character (but judging from the leaked promos he did, probably not).

I enjoyed the main event more than I thought I would. The Ascension are really improving the quality of their matches I think, they have gone from boring to less boring and I actually liked this one. Hunico and Camacho more than did their part of course, although the pure Mexican-ness of their gimmick is a bit embarrassing, and there's no reason a pro wrestler would dress like they do for a match. I wonder who will challenge the Ascension next - Enzo/Cass would have been a natural, but Enzo will still be out a while. American Wolves/Pitbulls would have been cool but they didn't get signed. Perhaps we shall see the debut of another team? Lefort/Louis maybe - he has been on the prowl for new Legionnaires, if they did a gimmick based around the Louis promo where he said a bunch of funny language barrier based double entendres, they could be faces. Maybe the Grey/Burch pairing we have heard about from house shows? Those cowboy guys maybe? Any other ideas?

I really enjoyed Breeze and Neville bickering back and forth more than I should have. As for The Ascension, the crowd made it worthwhile although there was some good action, I just found it hard to care about either team, which should not be the case.
