Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

I've missed the past 2 or 3 weeks of NXT. Having said that, I've barely watched Raw or SD either. Still have them saved on my sky+ box though so I hope to get around to them pretty soon.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Really good episode of NXT this week... I know it's mostly a showcase for the developmental guys, but it's nice that they take the time to build some storylines for this show. Kicking off the show with the Shield was a good choice and a solid promo from everyone involved. Quick thoughts on the matches:

Bo Dallas vs. Epico - Nice little match that shows Epico is a good heel when they allow him to do his thing, and they continue to build Bo as one of the top babyfaces on the show. He's been painfully bland throughout his time on NXT though, so hopefully the 'masochist/enjoys the pain' shtick will allow him to develop some sort of personality.

Sasha Banks vs. Tamina Snuka - Alright match to showcase the divas; I'm glad that they at least try and have one women's match per show. Not much to say here otherwise.

Kassius Ohno/Leo Kruger vs. Tyson Kidd/Justin Gabriel - Really good tag match between these four men. Kidd/Gabriel show why they should get more of an opportunity on the main roster & Ohno/Kruger work really well together. Ohno as the guile & Kruger as the muscle works for this pairing... I'd prefer them as singles competitors down the line, but for now it's working quite well.

Corey Graves vs. Seth Rollins - Enjoyed the match as a continuation of the story, and I thought that Graves looked really sharp. Rollins allowed him to shine and it was easily Corey's best showing on NXT so far.

The post-match stuff was all great too, really good setup for next week.

The tag match was good. I saw that Gabrial/Kidd took a few moves out of MCMG book!

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Pretty solid show this week, in-ring it was really good. I can't stand Bo Dallas right now - he's not the right guy to have the "he loves pain" gimmick either. Just team him with Garrett Dylan and have a Cade and Murdoch team all over again. Bo is years away from being a top guy even if the wwe sees him as having that potential. Let him cut his teeth in a tag team - not everybody called up needs to get a top guy singles push.

I like Kruger and Ohno separately but I think both are wasted in a thrown together tag team. Hopefully with recent call-ups both head back to singles.

I'm a big fan of Tamina Snuka - she was/is criminally underused. She could be a cornerstone of a competitive divas division with Nattie, Eve, Kaitlyn and until recently Beth. With Vickie seemingly without a storyline on wwe, I wonder if the Snuka bodyguard angle is already dropped.

"For the win" commentator is going to cause me to rage blackout, I just know it. And the variation of "for the pin" isn't cute either.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

Having not seen NXT since it's first episode post FCW, I was looking forward to this. I thought the show opened in a kind of manic way with the Shield all kicking butt in the ring. I marked for Dusty Rhodes as the authority figure, having not seen him on TV in a suitable role in months.

Bo Dallas vs Epico was an okay little match, it seemed to have little meaning but it obviously served to help Dallas polish himself in the ring and hopefully get over.

The woman's match was decent, I was impressed by Sasha and obviously Tamina's quality, so all was good here. If only the WWE would do more with Tamina, on a similar note I'm sure Sasha will one day be one of the top diva's in the WWE.

The tag match was nice too, I really enjoyed seeing KO for the first time in this incarnation, him and Kruger seemed to have a good chemistry together. Gabriel and Kidd are a team who were thrown together, are really well matched but can't seem to get over. I enjoyed their homage to MCMG in the match and look forward to seeing more undercard matches from the 2 for many years to come.

Then we get the main again Seth Rollins, obviously Tyler Black from ROH (no relation to Ultra Mantis Black though :/) against Corey Graves. I don't really know much about Graves but he seemed like an okay worker and the kind of guy who would really fit in on the TNA under-card. The match being ended by the Shield helping out Rollins was good. Then when they basically kicked the arses of the entire NXT locker-room, I thought it was a bit much. Big E Langston coming down to save the day, without them making contact was interesting. I was kinda thinking we'd see an alliance, whilst in the back of my mind realising if they were to align with each other it would happen on a much bigger stage than NXT.

Overall it was a good show and looking forward to watching next week although not too sure about Langston/Rollins.

Re: Official NXT Weekly TV Show Discussion

I don't watch NXT actively like I'm sure some of you do, but I know some wrestlers there, I actually watched last week's episode and the episode from 2 weeks ago.

I marked out over Dean Ambrose having mic time with Dusty Rhodes at the beginning of the show last week. I'd like to see Ambrose wrestle on there but it seems like they're just gonna use Ambrose and Reigns as Seth's muscle/bodyguards, which isn't surprising considering it makes sense for a heel champion to use their stable for help when they think something's gonna go wrong, this has been going on for years so it's no big deal. But I like how they're using Ambrose/Reigns on there. Can't wait for more of Ambrose on the mic.

But Bo Dallas is alright, wasn't too impressed, he seems very average and generic. We've had too many fucking guys that have that monster/psycho babyface type of gimmick that does weird, not-intimidating-at-all looks whenever they feel pain. Nobody gives a fuck if you like the feel of pain, now wrestle for your life and stop trying so hard. We don't need a character like that. It's too cheesy for my liking.

Paige seems like a great female wrestler, though. I'm keeping my eye on her. Probably the only diva right now that I like not just because of her looks.

Kruger/Ohno are alright as well, although it seems like they don't even know what to do with them, which is sad.

I'm not that excited for next week, though. Hopefully Langston and Seth deliver and it isn't just a short less than 10-5 minute match where Langston dominates and The Shield comes out and attacks and shit like that. Also, it's kinda've weird how Langston is a monster heel bodyguard on RAW/SmackDown, yet.. he's a monster babyface on NXT. Just thought that was a little interesting. I wondered if they do that with guys like The Shield and Langston and other guys who are on main shows but are still on NXT.
