I thought the same thing. I commented on the lack of arm drags. I also found Kruger continuously entertaining during that match.

The main event was also good, which is impressive considering Gabriel/Slater has been done to death.

That's what happens when wrestlers listen to Kruger in the ring. He knows how to make himself and the opponent look good. I expected some arm work out of Richie though. That's just what Richie Steamboat does.

Gabriel doesn't often put on bad matches. When he's facing someone who he's got strong chemistry with, the probability tends towards zero. Hell of a bump he took too.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

I've been a Kruger fan since I first started watching the guy. The man doesn't get enough credit.

I'm higher on Gabriel than I was prior to his injury. He was always talented, but he seems to do less throwing himself around for the sake of throwing himself around since his injury. That was a serious bump.

Agreed.

Gabriel can be very, very good when he chooses to be. Go look at his FCW stuff against Kaval, Kruger and Barrett, for example. Though to be honest he didn't have a bad match in his FCW run after his first three matches (which were squashes).

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

Good episode of NXT this week. I particularly enjoyed the Kaitlyn/Tamina match. I wrote about it here:

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

Pretty good main event this week, although the show itself just felt like the old NXT, but not in the good way. There was very little in the way of storylines and angles. We got some (Kruger/Steamboat will continue) but not many. Kruger v Steamboat was pretty decent as well.

No idea why Cesaro was so terrible in his backstage segment as well. He has charisma, but that was a cringeworthy segment.

Also, the commentary team is awful. There's no combination of commentators in this NXT that works for me. None at all.

This week's show was good too. Jinder/Percy, Steamboat/Kruger and Slater/Gabriel were pretty good matches.

NXT the last two weeks has basically felt like FCW with a few hype videos thrown on top. That's still way better than the first round of tapings went, but yeah, they've got a long way to go.

NXT was a one match show, and that one match delivered. Diaz is fucking dreadful, by the way, reminds me of someone. #ExcuseMe

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

Raquel needs a lot work. Hopefully they tweak her character to make it less annoying. Her ring attire is hideous and her hair and make-up was a mess. On the otherhand, Paige was awesome. I loved the support the crowd gave her.

Tamina and Natalya seem to go back and forth from heel to face. I hope they don't put Kaitlyn in that same limbo. They already erased a Kaitlyn heel turn before.
