I like the crowd the most. They are very honest, and the guys in developmental NEED that feedback. Is it smarky? Yes, but if they dig something they let you know. If they hate something, they will let you know, too. Fast. It creates an environment where performers can try new things and see what works. If something doesn't work, guess what? You can change gimmicks and start over fresh. The crowd just goes with it. They never put themselves over, either. It's very in tune with what's going on in the ring.

In turn, as a home viewer, I can get immersed in the characters on NXT better and faster than on the main shows. It all just works.

The overall look is refreshing compared to the same set-up of Raw and SmackDown.
It's more wresting focused.
The crowds more often than not are rowdy, which in the case of Full Sal is actually good (sometimes not so much I'll admit).
We get to see new faces we never see on the main shows.
We get to see said people improve with different gimmicks/characters/wrestling moves.
It's an hour long.

Give the boring show with characters that suck an extra hour? I don't understand the rationale here...

A good example is the match Ambrose and Rollins had on RAW that was a goddamn PPV worthy match and pissed on everything Cena, Orton and Kane had done the entire year.
Yes yes yes yes yes. This. I don't want to see Orton go through the motions for the 7,000th time because he doesn't care anymore. I don't want to see another Cena "I'm intense and serious" promo/ match that he's done before and doesn't really care about. These other dudes bring an effort that you don't see from the older guys. Maybe their bodies just can't do it but the contrast is insane. I feel like a good reason the promotions to the main roster for NXT guys and girls is slow because if they brought up the Zayn's and the Neville's and the Rollins' all at once the rest of the roster is going to look like absolute junk by comparison.

I agree completely. I feel like nearly every week the crowd gets the balance right. They have fun, they chant, they're smarks, but they're not there to hijack a show/ segment if it's actually quality. They put over the stuff that's worthwhile and shit on what's not (Eve etc.). I know the show has been a high quality for a long time but I wonder if the crowd acts as a bit of a moderator for the show quality? If you feed these fans garbage they will destroy it. If you give them quality, they will appreciate it.

The short answer for what I like about this show is booking. The feuds make so much damn sense (the build to this 4-way has been awesome... when did WWE last have a multi-man title match where EVERY GUY had an actual LEGITIMATE claim to the belt?), and the characters are absolutely some of the best we've seen in YEARS (Wyatts, Enzo and Cass, Breeze, Ascension, Vaudevillains etc.). Look at a guy like Tyson Kidd? He was nobody, absolute junk, on the main roster. He becomes an NXT mainstay and suddenly he has character and a purpose. I honestly think he's one of the best heels in the company (or at least on NXT). I want to see him get his teeth kicked in, he's such a natural heel.

I know it's easier with a small roster but NXT actually has shit that matters that ISN'T just a title feud. The women's division has multiple stories going on at once (BFF break-up, Bayley's quest for the title), you have an NXT title feud with numerous angles (Breeze's long awaited title shot screwed by Tyson, Tyson has been pissing everyone off and pushing for a title shot for months, Zayn has been on his quest for the title from the beginning, Neville has history with all of them, Kidd and Zayn have history), you have a midcard feud that has been built for months in Leforte and Enzo (weren't the Legionaires feuding with those guys before Enzo was hurt?) and you have a tag division with at least 4 teams that are actually legitimate and matter.

AND STEEN, DEVITT AND KENTA AREN'T EVEN ON THE FUCKING ROSTER YET.

(Btw, Konnor in that photo is hilarious.)

Much better matches, kind of has that indie feel I guess. Is more of a Wrestling show then a entertainment show. Almost every match is important unlike raw or smackdown where they just throw together a fandango vs big e match. I wouldn't say I enjoy it more then raw but Its probably just under it. Also the main event fued going now is really good. Neville, Breeze, Kidd and Sami "The Goat" Zayne are all good if not great in the ring.

I liked the storylines and the overall atmosphere. It doesn't feel like a WWE product and is structured in a way that it has its own identity with an influx of talent. It's an entertaining product and is easily digestible opposed to RAW.

With only an hour to work with, theres thankfully a lack of bs dance segments and the like, everything is far more to the point. Also with such a short run time, wrestlers aren't overexposed at all so things take a lot longer to feel old. Bull Dempsey and Mojo Rawley need to gtfo though.

Its a wrestling show, unlike raw which is a mindfuck of commercials, recaps and filler

Default Re: What do you like about NXT?

I was watching some of NXT on the Network today for the first time since it has been an online only show. I really like it, and the matches just seem better than on the main televised shows. One of the standouts was Bayley. To me she has really good skills and showmanship in the ring. The match I saw of her, was where her opponent was Sasha Banks. I really like how she grabbed Sasha's glasses and strutted in the ring.

She may be a little geeky (perhaps like AJ, but in a more innocent way). I would really like to see her brought up to the main roster to see what she could do there. What do you guys and girls think of Bayley?
