I admit, I've got a thing for Anya. Can't wait for her debut.

I enjoyed the opening match this week, Kruger vs Gabriel. Not as good as the first, I'll admit, but good psychology, a little more story development, Kruger's new finisher is much better now, just needs a name, and of course, Kruger got the win, a clean one mind you. Now what I'd like to see is Gabriel and Kruger have a promo. Gabriel isn't stellar, but Kruger is pretty decent. They need to get this character across and having Gabriel expose Kruger for being a child solider, wanted poacher, mercenary or whatever and then having Kruger attack him leading to a rubber match is the best way to get this character across.

Audrey Marie segment. She looks better without tons of that makeup on. Much better. She looks inebriated with the amount of blush she used to put on.

Regal and Ohno promo segment. This is likely what everyone wants to see. Pretty good. Regal is always solid, he made this one feel very realistic and heartfelt. I liked how Ohno started off his promo with respect and admiration before descending to anger and disgust with Regal, it's very Jericho-esque. Solid promo overall. It's not a legendary or particularly noteworthy promo but it's a decent watch, and I'll tell you what, this promo was better than every single Ohno match thus far.

Paige is back! Oh thank God. She squashes the new girl, Bayley, who actually has some potential. She seems to have a decent athletic resume and Paige and her have a decent squash. Summer Rae comes out but then runs away.

NXT really knows how to fill time. When they aren't recapping they use every bit of time to advance every possible feud.

Main event is Harper vs Neville. Good match. Typical giant vs high flyer dynamic, but it works very well. The Family get involved towards the end and Harper gets the win. Not sure that I like that Neville and Dallas before him, two smaller guys, are able to overpower Rowan and Harper, two giants in the ring so often, but at least the Family won. Grey and Dallas save Neville from a beat-down. I guess Grey has recovered and as soon as the next tapings come along we will see a six man tag.

Overall, good show. Another thing worth mentioning is that Tony Dawson has a lot of potential. I know a lot of people find him repetitive, and he uses 'for the win' more than an chatroom would, but he's eager, enthusiastic, excited and genuinely comes across as loving the the 'sport'. He also frequently and actively tries to get the colour commentator involved, asking their opinion and talking about certain moves and the feeling and pain that the wrestlers are experiencing. He really seems eager to learn and I'm all for him getting the lead spot on Smackdown as opposed to that boring old sock named Josh Matthews.

Well worth a watch this week.

Fuck sake, Dailymotion has decided to act like a mongy cunt by not letting me search for anything. Sounds like a good show with at least three segments I want to see. Three segments in a one hour show. Holy fuck, Raw this is what you could've been.

Try Putlocker. On Bollyrulez. When my PVR times for NXT coincide with other TV recordings I use Bollyrulez to watch.

I really dug the show this week. Kruger vs Gabriel was a good match, the finish submission came out of nowhere though, I think Kruger will need to have a little showmanship before he locks it in to let folks know it's coming. But he's really finding his character - he's more than ready for the main roster, and I expect he'll be a post-mania call-up. He'd certainly deserve it. Gabriel was better as the Nexus heel, he just doesn't have intensity as a face. I loved it when he'd perch himself up for the 450 Splash and almost show remorse of what he was about to do, but then do it anyways.

I loved the Regal/Ohno segment. Ohno has dropped the crazier parts of his character, trimmed his beard -he was much more Chris Hero in the segment I thought. I liked his debut persona, didn't like where he was going when he was teaming with Kruger, but if he had to drop the KO gimmick because Barrett stole it that's a shame. I think his eventual wwe debut will work best involving Antonio Cesaro in some form. Either confronting him as a man from his past, or maybe making a save out of the audience and re-uniting as a tag team for a run.

Bailey vs Paige was short, but they bring physicality that the wwe divas don't. You can tell they're both indie wrestlers because they basically work the men's style in the ring, and sell accordingly. Bailey looked good, I'm not sure I like the screaming Paige though, I liked her more as the mysterious brooding Brit. I guess she needs to be the face in the feud with Summer, but playing to the crowd is not what an anti-diva would do.

Main event was solid, if unspectacular. Crowd was sort of flat. Harper is perfect for his role. I liked Regal explaining why Neville would consider going to the top rope ie needing that extra force given the size difference in order to keep Harper down. Virtually no pop for the save - maybe needed a bit more post match beat down to sell that a little better.

I actually though having Gabriel as a heel was fighting the grain. He looks like a babyface, with his boyish good looks and his long hair and high flying style.

I do think Kruger will need to signal for the submission, maybe banging his head with his hands like he did earlier. He's in tune with the character, They just need some sort of proper, five minute segment to get it across.

I thought the KO character was good initially, while he was feuding with Steamboat, but yeah, as soon as that ended and he joined with Kruger not much came of them. Kruger doesn't seem the type to have a partner and Ohno was just... boring. He had that witty, snide humour to him before but he lost that in the team.

I do like that he ditched the glasses and the long beard. From his indy promos he seems pretty good. Catchphrases and promotes himself really well. Maybe instead of the bashes and gashes heel they should make him into a sarcastic, ruthless, arrogant guy with catchphrases who cheats whenever he has the chance, literally nearly every match. Either way, they are taking steps to improve the character, which I like.

I feel the 'anti-diva' character isn't really something that makes a whole lotta sense with Paige and the roster right now. If she's going to work as a babyface then I think the screams and shouts and fiery character all work in her favour. A darker, brooding character just doesn't come across very effectively. It may work if WWE had actual barbie divas on the roster, but they don't.

So Bayley is a indy wrestler then? Good to know. Glad WWE has been signing so many capable women.

I'm just glad Grey is back. Yeah, crowd was a little flat this time around, I'm guessing because Neville hasn't really broken out a lot of his high flying offence yet.

NXT 3/21/2013 had:

Leo Kruger vs Justin Gabriel
Paige vs Bayley(debut) aka Davina Rose
Regal and Ohno talking
Luke Harper vs Adrian Neville

I reviewed the show here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013...nd-review.html

Overall thoughts: Skip this one. This show mostly advanced storylines and never really picked up. I wasn't too interested from anything on here.

Some shots from the show:

Yeah, this episode was great. Not OMG awesome, but better than average.

I thought they would've tried and extended the Kruger/Gabriel feud but was surprised to see the match end clean. I'm digging Kruger more and more as the weeks go by, but it still feels as though something is missing. Something to really give his character some more sting. Perhaps some face paint or a prop? A coat to wear to the ring even (not one of those cheesy hunter coats)? I like his submission, but yeah like has been said before, he needs to give a signal on when it's about to be applied, make it more threatening.

Kassius Ohno was really giving me CM Punk vibes in that segment with Regal. Not so much the quality, but the way he looked. If he cut his hair he'd almost be a dead ringer for Punk. If this is going to lead to a match and it most probably will, is it going to be a retirement match? I'd like to see him retire on WWE programming but I think he'd like to give a rub in this fashion and I see no qualms.

Divas match was short and unspectacular. Nothing more needs to be said about Paige really, she looks the part and is ready. Bayley looks to be another addition who can be molded into a character in the next couple of months as it looks like she has the ability.

Main event match was decent, but I loved the closing segment. WWE wishes they could book a feud like this for their midcard talent. Luke Harper is just awesome, and the Family are looking more deranged and cohesive as the weeks go by. Thought Neville played the underdog role brilliantly, but match was too short to give it any real effectiveness. Can't wait for the six man tag that we'll get very soon. When are the next bunch of tapings?

Hey guys, new to the forum, I just recently started getting back into WWE stuff after a long while off and I gotta say I'm loving this NXT thing, more of an old school feel to it and it's great getting to see the young guys strut their stuff. Plus Regal is boss of course.

I really like Kruger - I know he's not as hyped as some of the current and recent WWE prospects but he's got a good character and I think his new finisher really brings things together. That armbreaker he used right before the finish was sweet too, I'd never seen anything like that before. I could see him having trouble getting over on the main roster though for some reason...anyway the match with him and Gabriel was solid.

Unlike many people here I have enjoyed KO so far in NXT and I like his matches, the style is unique and I think "disasterpiece" is a good way to put it as he does. The KO elbow looks great and I liked him beating Bateman with the boot last week too, it puts over that he can knock you out at any time in a variety of ways.

That said, I didn't think the promo today was terrible strong...I think all the pieces were there but it seemed disjointed. I think what he was trying to say was that he was disgusted with Regal for apologizing and acting wimpy when he used to be inspiringly vicious, but he didn't exactly say that, he just dissed Regal and said his career was worthless, etc...he didn't really connect the dots between "I idolized you" and "you are a loser" to me. He just needed to say something like "I don't want you to apologize for hitting me, that's exactly the kind of thing I used to love about you, now you are old and washed up and you regret your past instead of being the proud villain you once were." Idk just my two cents.

Wyatt family of course is great, shame we didn't get to hear Bray on the mic as he is always awesome but it was cool getting to see Harper in extended action. Looking forward to the pending 6-man tag match with the Family vs. Dallas/British dudes.

On a side note since i mentioned Dallas, I don't hate him as passionately as some here despite his creepy smile and transvestite looks, but damn man this dude needs better moves especially his finisher. His spear was pathetic and this belly-to-belly nonsense is even worse, I get that they want to give him a surprise come out of nowhere type move but it just looks crappy and as a result it makes his opponents look weak. I think he is trying to do like the Shelton Benjamin Tbone/Exploder thing, but he's really just not pulling it off.
