Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Average show, as is typical for the last show of a tapings, the matches are the last few taped and the crowd is tired.
Bayley is money in the bank, though. She's very smooth and skilled in the ring, but her unique look and character is really endearing her to the crowd, I could see her being a really bit hit with kids for instance. Push her!

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

The Rusev-Lana arrangement is stupid. Nothing to do with Lana, but Rusev does not need a female manager. It gives the impression that underneath his beastly exterior, he does have a warm heart lurking. Fuck that, he should be a monster with no heart.

I think there's a perfect fit for someone who should be Rusev's manager, and he's already on the main roster.



He could bring him in to the roster to stop him being treated like a rag doll by guys like Kane and Ryback for example.

The reason Lana is with Rusev is because she's of Latvian descent and speaks Russian. I doubt Brad speaks Russian.
They want a full on old school foreign heel gimmick with Rusev, and that means manager who speaks a foreign language too.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Lana with Rusev is stupid for this reason. When he was working for Sylvester Lefort it was a shaky alliance at best because Lefort tried to use him as his personal attack dog, much like any wrestling manager with a monster (ala Henan and Andre), but Rusev didn't need Lefort because he is strong enough and smart enough without him so he kicked his ass to the curb.

Lana comes in gets in his ear a few times with those terrible-looking dresses and can get him to stop and start attacking people at will. It makes him look like less of a monster because he looks pussy whipped. This guy who was answering to no one is now at the beck and call of a woman which humanizes his brutality making him look weaker.

Also I just realized Tyler Breeze's gimmick is basically a rip-off of Derek Zoolander. I kinda like him now slightly because of this, doesn't excuse most of the males in the audience chanting that he's gorgeous however.

Breeze was fantastic in that backstage segment.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Alright episode

Bayley/Summer Rae was enjoyable. Summer played a good heel in this match and Bayley is adorable as always.

Cassady/English was alright. English's finishing move looks really good.

The Breeze/Neville backstage segment was good. Breeze plays the Zoolander-esque character really well and Neville did quite well talking himself. Breeze/Neville next week should be interesting.

Woods/Rusev was fine for what it was. I like Xavier Woods and I'm not quite sold on Rusev yet, though he looks promising.

Kidd/Corbin was meh. Good to see Kidd back.

Hunico and Camacho/The Ascension Tornado Tag Team Match was good. It started off slow but picked up after the commercial break. Good match overall.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Although Corbin looks super green in the ring, I think this match highlighted Tyson Kidd's short comings. The guy maybe an excellent technician, but he just doesn't connect with the crowd or make a match interesting. His comeback was meh and really I'm sure the ref just told him to go home to stop boring everyone. Kidd should stop his stupid smile and go watch some Beniot tapes and be intense if his gimmick is to be this technical wizard from the Hart dungeon.

I've never ever said this on this board and complained about WWE being "PG" but is that why all the faces are lame, because they want all their baby faces to be happy smiling idiots. To appease to children... Well it's not doing Tyson Kidd any favors what so ever.

Edit: and totally agree with the Rusev Lana dynamic making him less of a monster. That's what I have thought months ago when they paired up. I kinda thought about it being like she tamed him with her pussy. That's why he's with her.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

^ It's nothing to do with 'PG', children don't want to see boring, generic characters, nobody does, in fact kids would probably tolerate that less than adult fans. Kidd just sucks, the guy is a total waste of time and comes across as a dweeb IRL so it's no surprise his wrestling character is awful/non-existent. I'll never understand why he has so many fans on here.
