Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

I absolutely despise the new NXT. It's not even doing much for the FCW talent either to be honest. 3 Minute matches infront of 300 people doesn't do much, I don't think. Plus NXT was twice as good when Regal was the GM and they had they whacky storylines, was probably the best show in North America with only Impact coming close. At least with that, they were developing characters and feuds with superstars people were already familiar with - Maxine, Bateman, Kaitlyn, Curtis, Watson, Young and O'Neil (look what NXT did for them), Kidd and McGillicutty as well. Also look what FCW did for the likes of Bo, Rollins, Cesaro etc - Kept them fit an healthy, developed their skills, allowed them to adapt and provided opportunities for gimmicks to be tried and tested. No gimmicks are being exposed either, other than Bray Wyatt, but that can't really count seeing as it's only video packages.

The new NXT serves very little purpose, IMO, especially compared to the former NXT and FCW. Bad decision, IMO, by the WWE.

Here is the full show for those who don't want to bother searching or the show going by parts.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

Another boring show this week.

Can they incorporate some storylines into this already?

Matches are great but they're hard to watch when I don't care about the wrestlers involved.

EDIT: The vignette for Wyatt was the most entertaining portion of the show.. Again...

This. Exactly.

NXT so far is basically shaping up to be a lower grade version of Superstars. If Triple H has a bigger plan here, I'm not seeing it. I understand the argument of being patient and letting things develop, but if WWE isn't going to put a lot of effort in most of the debuts, why would they once they debuted? The talent has one shot at getting introduced to the audience. If anyone gets over, it's because the talent got themselves over instead of WWE providing a framework to get them over.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

Bray Wyatt promo was the highlight of the show.

They really need to start having longer matches and the dead crowd is killing it for me. You can even see them leaving the seats.

I think they will eventually. They can't debut all the FCW talent at once so it might take another month before we actually see them in stories and character development. Aside from that, I really do miss the old NXT with their wacky storylines and everybody on the roster wanting to leave NXT.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

Got better this week, slightly more even matches, slightly longer and if you squint you could see a story with the Rollins stuff. They're getting their.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

Match quality was way up this week. I agree that the lack of reasons to care is a major problem, but at least the matches were (mostly) better. The main roster guys (Kidd, Hunico, McGillicutty) really showed the FCW guys that they've got a long way to go.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

Here I was excited as fuck to watch this week's episode in an hour's time in HD, now I'm not so excited and may just skip it and head out after reading all the reviews.

WWE are morons, the first show was fucking awesome and now 2 weeks in a row of below average shows, arghh.

John Cena is turning heel soon
