Watching the new NXT it's really clear that Triple H grew up watching "Superstars of Wrestling" in the 80's. The shows have almost the identical format - squash matches with the eventual winner always introduced second (and with the loser often "already in the ring"), filmed promos to introduce new personalities, and an interview or two out on/near the entrance ramp. The only thing missing is a Piper's Pit/Barbershop/Brother Love Show segment.

While the show's production values are a huge step up on both the old NXT and FCW, there are still some "minor league" qualities showing through. J.R., as professional as he is, most often sounds like he read the background on these wrestlers 10 minutes before the broadcast. I was quite surprised to hear him call Seth Rollins's finisher by its indy name ("Blackout", as in Tyler Black). As others have said the ring announcing was awful (did she call him GINGER Mahal?), and it was disappointing to hear Chris Russo turn back the clock about 25 years by claiming that Samoans have thicker skulls than the rest of us.

Worst of all was Richie Steamboat's voice-over for his video package. How did this make it past the production team??? Damien Sandow would have a field day! Richie, your father was FAMOUS, not INFAMOUS.

Infamous:
Well known for some bad quality or deed.
Wicked; abominable: "infamous misconduct".
Synonyms:
ignominious - disgraceful - disreputable - shameful

And you want people to "make their own assumption" of you? What does that even MEAN?

Is it just me or did that terrible ring announcer chick say "introducing first Jimmy and Jay, The Oso's!"?

Don't know why she, or her sister(alicia fox) have jobs.

I wish Stone Cold worked backstage with WWE. He'd rip whoever gave her a job.

Austin called her out on Tough Enough for being so soft spoken and everything. So what does WWE do...gives her a job at ring announcing. The job that's designed for those who can speak loud/exciting

Honestly i have no idea why she has a job. My only guess would be because she has a cute face and they just wanna use her as eye candy for the ring announcer position. Its funny Austin called her out for being too soft spoken and they give her a job ring announcing. Cameron was eliminated first from TE because Austin said she wasn't passionate about the business and what happens shes the first person signed, WWE logic.

Meh. Steamboat and Rollins showed off their talent but didn't really get too much of an opportunity. They need to stop with the squash matches. It doesn't work if your show is only on its second episode.

Ascension was the high-point (albeit a short lived one), they have real potential in the tag-team division, very original and sound ring skills, just give them a mic and a feud and you've got your next tag team champion.

And another cool Wyatt promo though, but I'm guessing his first few matches will be squashes. NXT has potential put it will take a while.

I thought the ring announcer this week was Summer Rae. In which case... look at her.

I don't agree. it's a great way to introduce the wrestlers who will be relevant for the show.
The first matches between the "important new guys" will have big match feeling. I think it's smart.

Haven't seen it yet, but if that's the case, then she shouldn't be ring announcer either.

She has no wrestling experience, probably isn't even a WWE fan, is just there for the money and publicity. Watch her promos, she seems like she doesn't know what to do half the time(especially with the promo with her and Dusty on FCW).


Hopefully the Jinder match is during the Raptors pick in the NBA draft. Gonna watch draft and nxt but really hoping that I don't miss a good part of nxt for the draft. Only 3/5 matches tonight look good, so hoping I don't miss any of those 3.

Trish Stratus wasn't a WWF fan and had no wrestling experience. Don't be an elitist dumbass.

Trish is a rare occurrence though. Just like The Rock. WWE assumes that since the rock made it big in hollywood, any of their stars can, so they brought in WWE Studios and it's failing. WWE saw Trish as a model and brought her in and saw how big she was, and now are trying to bring in models all the time to be divas, and are seeing how big that's failing(biggest example is Kelly).


There's 7 matches? On the card I saw, it was only 5?
