Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion
Good show this week. Gabriel vs Kruger have never really clicked for me personally, technically it's good, but there is never any crowd heat. I'd like to see both move on to other opponents. NXT is terrible creating faces though - which makes it hard for non-squash heels to get over.
Kruger's sub finisher is called the GC3, whatever that stands for. I will point out again that Regal needs to drop the Cricket backstory for Kruger, he's a child soldier/mercenary/poacher who wouldn't be playing cricket in his spare time.
I dug the NXT at Wrestlemania behind-the-schenes, I don't know why more fans don't go to the free matches, though I believe Rollins did say they're at 8am or something.
Bailey is going to be something special I think. She could be the best womens wrestler in NXT right now, and no we haven't seen a lot, but it's just the little things and a gut feeling on my part. The bloom is off Paige at the moment for me, mostly because she's being booked as a face, and all the crowd playing that comes with that territory doesn't seem to fit her. I liked the slingshot faceplant into sub finisher for Emma, she just needs to make it a bit smoother in execution (and take out the brief dancing part).
Bray Wyatt got his other arm re-inked/covered up. I wonder if he'll do something with the tribal wings on his back next. A bit cliche - the wings - but would fit his character nonetheless, he just needs to make them a lot bigger. Match was your typical Wyatt squash though, seen it all before. Did learn that his finisher is called "Sister Abigail". Whatever that means. Bray has his character nailed right now, and is ready for the call-up. I'd buy an "Eater of Worlds" t-shirt. Maybe simply have Bray Wyatt written across the front, with the B having his trademark hat hanging off the corner of it, and then "Eater of Worlds" across the back.
I was more interested in the lumberjacks than the in-ring during the Rollins vs Graves main event. Lumberjacks were - Knuckles Madsen, Saywer Fulton, Travis Tyler on the entrance side, than Axl Keegan (huge bald spot), Enzo Amore and Troy McClain across the top, Aiden English, Danny Burch(smaller than I expected), Colin Cassady on the left, and Mojo Rawley, Baron Corbin, Angelo Dawkins along the bottom.
Langston has to drop the title at the next set of tapings. The should give it to a face, given all the heels. Not Bo Dallas though. I'd say Adrian Neville is probably the best candidate - make him drop the tags if Oliver Grey is out for awhile, but give him a singles title shot out of it.
