What do you like about NXT?

I've been reading a lot of post that talk about what you don't like...What I want to know is what do you like about NXT why do you watch it? Maybe I'm spoiled because I go to so many house shows,but IMO they're better then anything I see on Raw or Smackdown.


I for one can't wait to see which Tittles are changed after Takeover 2!

Re: What do you like about NXT?

I love the fact that NXT content is about 80% wrestling / 20% storyline. More emphasis is on the ring action. It sort of has an independent vibe, although it is a WWE product. NXT's appearance is what Ring of Honor "should" look like if Sinclair took their investment seriously.

Having watched all NXT episodes since moving to Full Sail, I became emotionally invested in the NXT hopefuls. I feel proud when a talent finally makes it to the main WWE roster. I am already emotionally invested in the recent signees that have not even debuted yet. I am sure I had a few joyful tears when the first NXT Champion Seth Rollins and NXT Womens Champion Paige were crowned. I felt extreme pride when I watched Cesaro/Sami Zayn put on some of the best matches under the WWE umbrella.

Less unnecesary angles, most of the times better matches.

Re: What do you like about NXT?

I think the generally match quality is much higher than the main show thanks to the lack of bullshit, I prefer the gimmicks on NXT despite them getting far less time to work them, and I like how women don't need to obsess about men or be exhibitionist lesbians along with the fact their matches get comparable time to the mens. Oh, and the commentary team doesn't try to actively destroy the product.

Re: What do you like about NXT?

The production as a whole is fun to watch: tiny arena, loud crowd, black mat, etc. Let's not forget the incredible wrestling!! I'm a huge fan of women's wrestling and NXT offers GREAT women matches.

Basically, NXT is less talk, more action.


DAMN RIGHT

Re: What do you like about NXT?

Nothing anymore. NXT is boring and all the characters suck.. NXT needs to go 2 hour's. That would make a huge difference, it would give them more time to develop stories and characters before they hit the main roster. They could barely do shit in an hour show.


Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Wyatt Family, Brock Lesnar, Cesaro

Maryse Ouellet, Eve Torres, Ivelisse Velez

AJ Lee, Dolph Ziggler, Zack Ryder, The Bromans, Roman Reigns

Re: What do you like about NXT?

It's a pure product. No constant recaps, commercials, recaps, moronic angles, skits, sponsor bits, recaps, endless, repetitive promo segments, etc. It's mainly matches, with simple promos to set up some of them, and ongoing angles that are solidly planned with slow burns. It also keeps all its titles and champions important and protected, to make them the focus of the show.

Re: What do you like about NXT?

A more fun, relaxed show. No agendas in terms of people getting pushed or buried, or half-pushes that are stopped for no reason. No forcing of things down the fans throats or intelligence-insulting bullshit, especially from the commentators. The chance to watch wrestlers grow and develop, and perform with more freedom and less restrictions. No Kevin Dunn and no stale characters like Big Show or John Cena that you know are eventually going to eat up your favorite wrestlers. Women's wrestling being treated with respect.

I say no. I love the current NXT being 60 minutes. It makes you not wanna miss any single minute. Almost no dead moments, episodes go by very quickly. Also, it makes the 2-hour NXT specials way more exciting.

Let's keep things short and interesting. Maybe 90-minute episodes would be okay, but not two hours.

Re: What do you like about NXT?

It caught my attention that the women are better in NXT. Also, Neville is incredibly fun to watch even though he's tiny. I like to pretend NXT is the WWE cruiser weight championship division and the main women's division.

WWE current top 5: 1) Sandow 2) Bo! 3) Bahrahk Leznahrrr 4) Rollins 5) Ambrose

WWE all time top 15: 1) Austin 2) Rock 3) Foley 4) Piper 5) HHH 6) Dibiase 7) Taker 8) Savage 9) New Age Outlaws 10) Dudley Boyz 11) Jake the Snake 12) Doink 13) Bam Bam Bigelow 14) Razor Ramon 15) HBK

Don't be a lame man, be Bo's bud!
