Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion
Dug the show this week as well. Good matches, great character development.
Best segment of the show for me was the Graves interview/confrontation with Wyatt.
Nattie vs Summer was a solid match, Nattie should stay down here full time (as ridiculous as that sounds), as she was given time and opportunity to actually wrestle. Ending was a bit clunky as Paige decided to finally get around to interfere when Nattie was looking for the sharpshooter - which didn't make a lick of sense. Hopefully Nattie is in the Womens Title tournament and maybe gets her win back against Summer there. I'd LOVE to see Nattie vs Paige down the line as well.
Don't know what they're going for with the Sami Zayn character yet - but I have a huge schoolboy crush on Renee Young.
Bray Wyatt has his character completely figured out - it's really fun to watch. Where can I order my "Eater of Worlds" t-shirt? I didn't dig the mask, but understand it's not permanent but rather protecting a broken nose from a house show match. He tied it into his promo really well though - a real pro.
Match was standard fare from Wyatt, I liked the him headbutting the punch spot though. Burch is a lot smaller than I figured he was though and will need to come up with a gimmick quickly. I think a London street punk/hooligan could work for him.
Bo seems to be going to an "over the top face" heel character (that does actually make sense), which could work, at least I'll give it an honest chance. If he starts claiming the Booing is Bo-ing (taking a page out of Mr. Burns/Smithers they're saying Boo-urns) he might even win me over.
Conor O'Brian squash is what it is. I'm glad they're putting him back in a tag team and Rick Victor was the right choice. Victor is very solid in the ring, so he can do most of the in ring work like Cameron did, allowing Conor to be the powerhouse.
Sandow carried Langston to possibly his best match I've seen. I understand Langston going over, but I didn't like the extra big ending and five count ending. In the very least I think Sandow should have kicked out of the five count - because it would just be something he'd do.
If they want to take the title off of Langston while protecting him at the same time, have a heel talk him into needing a five count to win. Actually it would be a good spot for Babyface Bo, make it sound all innocent and how Big E is so dominant and likes the five count why not sign the contract for the match where to beat Bo he needs to be pinned for five seconds (with Bo only needing three to pin Big E of course). This would allow Big E to have numerous four counts during the match (ie he would have won a regular match) and then when Bo finally gets the 1-2-3 on him he could celebrate his big win but fans would reject it as cheap.
