No one should care about Richie Steamboat. He's a midcard loser. Ohno was right when he said to Ricky that his son had no potential.
As for NXT last night, it was okay. Excellent opening bout with Gabriel and Kruger. I liked Kruger's new theme. Having Tyson in the corner was smart, and the overall match was pretty good. Technical, with lots of psychology involving the arm. I'm guessing that Over Head Arm/Elbowlock is his new finisher. Good stuff. THe crowd really got behind Gabriel, which means the heel is doing the job well. The kayfabe story between the two is pretty cool:
Bo gets jumped, nothing special given the attacker is revealed in the main event.
Aksana vs Emma went a lot longer than I would have expected. About as good as an Aksana match can get, though Emma did an okay job. Not to fond of her stupid dancing act though. We had Layla for that.
Main event was okay. The contrasting styles didn't mesh well at all. O'Brian didn't use nearly as many power moves as he should have, and GRaves should have been chop clocking his leg the whole match. Boring, but not bad. Shield showing up was random. I would rather they just stay off of NXT now.
I know NXT is taped three in a row, so why weren't Grey and Neville on the show? Poor handling of the tag champions indeed.
