Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion Thread
Just finished watching this week's show and while the other events were a bit meh, the main event made the NXT Championship the most prestigious title in the WWE right now, the build-up to it, the hype it had, having the locker room out there to watch the match, having The Fink to announce it, getting Dusty go out there to present the title, Jim Ross doing the PBP, everything that was done in that match made that title the most important in WWE. No other title had the kind of push it got like it tonight, sure it was to crown the first champion but in the magnitude and the pageantry it received was phenomenal for the developmental brand. It's almost reminiscent to Japanese Wrestling in how the build-up and the culmination of it all felt like. WWE did a tremendous job at making that title mean something, and to have someone like Seth Rollins be the first champion was only fitting. Being that he was ROH Champ at one point only helped him to be the first NXT Champion, it meant that the promoters and the bookers trusted him to carry the brand and the company on your back. Rollins is fully capable of doing just that. It's only a matter of time before he becomes a World Champ on the main roster. And THAT is how you do a title match.
As far as Jinder Mahal goes, he'll definitely be a big time heel in the company, although I'd rather have Muhammed Hassan be that top Indian heel, Mahal does a great job as a heel. There's no question that even though he lost the match he still gained a ton of points in creative's eyes in what was a pretty damn good match in his first meaningful bout since he's been in the company.
