Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion
No comments on this week's badass show yet? This was one of the best NXT episodes I've seen (although I've only been watching for a few months).
I loved seeing the Shield in action, I feel they haven't wrestled on TV nearly enough since debuting in WWE - 2 ppv matches, 1 raw match, 1 aborted Rollins singles match. Imagine my joy last night when I unsuspectingly put on Main Event only to see them beat on some fat bastards, then put on NXT and out they come again to wreck some jobbers. Pumped for Rollins/Graves next week too.
Rollins using the skywalker for the win was cool too, although honestly I don't know how I feel about the way the move looks, it looks like it needs opponent assistance too much, the guy taking it should bend backwards sooner so it looks more like Rollins doing a backflip while holding the guy's head, versus getting lifted and held in the air before coming down. Or just do the Kendrick instead.
And of course, it was so great seeing Regal back in action. His ring psychology, the way he works his character in the ring, just so great. Love the knee trembler. And KO did a great job too. Are they calling the cravate the Kassius Crunch (or Kassius Clutch or whatever they said) now too? Anyway I expect Kassius to get his win back in a great rematch and then head up to the main roster.
