Richie Steamboat vs Jinder Mahal was actually pretty good for what it was, kept a decent pace. Was legit shocked to Scotty 2 Hotty on NXT and it was cool nonetheless. Tag match was decent but the finish was rather strange. And Seth Rollins vs Michael McGillicutty was a very good match.

Leo Kruger was interesting for quite possibly the first time ever. I've always said he was solid, if unspectacular, in the ring, but needed a character hook. That interview left me wanting more - to see where he's going. His past character attempts in FCW/NXT have been generic as hell - this one makes you take notice.

Jinder Mahal is the wrong guy to have in the finals. I think McGillacuddy vs Rollins/Steamboat should have been the final match.

Nobody seemed to know who Scotty 2 Hotty was - not much of a reax, but then more than half the folks there probably thought it was just another new developmental guy making his debut.

I disagree with you, sir. Jinder Mahal was built as the major heel of the NXT roster since day one, when he cut the promo of molding NXT into his vision. He has worked against top dogs like Sheamus, Ryback and Khali on Smackdown and Raw but McGillicutty hasn't, which takes him out of the equation. So when Rollins beats Mahal, a man who has such a background, he automatically gets over as the champion.

While Jinder's currently higher on the totem than McGillicutty, McGillicutty is vastly superior in the ring. This entire tournament was strangely built up to make everyone look good in the first round with little thought for what would happen afterward. I'm not expecting Jinder vs Seth Rollins to be any good as a wrestling match. I agree with your reasoning for WHY they did it, but any of the other heels would have created a better match. I'm not saying Jinder is bad in the ring, but he really needs to be the "other" guy during a match. Rollins has the same problem.
I'd have gone with McIntyre though. While he hasn't done much lately, he was still the guy in the tournament who'd been the "highest" in the WWE structure.

Thumbs up Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread

I'm extremely impressed with the major changes to the new season of NXT. The full sail kids are doing a great job with the vignettes and it truly shows. It has even influenced the videos showing on WWE TV(Wade Barrett). I will be writing a weekly review of the show as well as character reviews on a weekly basis. I've followed NXT(the new FCW for two years as well as watching all the way back to episode 1). I look forward to your responses and thoughts on the upcoming blogs. I will review character development in many different aspects ranging from introduction of the character to the current state as well as the development from beginning to end; long term and short term potentials; upside and downfalls, potential future feuds and standings on the main roster, and finally the correct times to make the jump. I will post my reviews and blogs in this thread in the future, unless it becomes necessary to post it in its own stand alone thread. I also am doing the same for TNA(will be in its own thread and will have a link to the thread in my NXT writings)

But McGillicutty is a gimmickless, boring, bland and dull sack of genericness.

Is it me or do some of the NXT guys have more presence that some of the midcard/undercard guys in WWE?

As for this week's NX, didn't think much of it really. Was nice to see The Worm again. Oh and The Ascension is always welcomed on my TV. As for the main event, I thought it was a hot mess. Rollins fucked it up tbh. He has no idea how to pace a match. The only thing that's saving his ass right now is that he has presence. But really Rollins doesn't have a fucking clue how to structure a match. McGuillicutty did a good job though but who cares about him?

I agree with you at a certain extent (the bold part) but both McIntyre and McGillicutty haven't done anything on the major shows recently, plus both of them don't have a gimmick. Jinder Mahal, who's foreign heel #19939703898783 is actually more interesting than those two. Along with the technical wrestling stuff, the storylines/entertainment value is also important in making a match interesting. So I still think its a right decision.
