Re: Wrestling fans watch NXT over Smackdown?

I DVR it because if I don't, my husband fusses. But we fast forward through all the RAW recaps, and that's at least a half hour right there, plus the commercials and the didn't-we-just-watch-this-match-on-monday matches and anything involving Khali, Hornswoggle, Del Rio, and that fat asshole Brodus Clay. So basically we watch the opening segment, fast forward for a bit, watch the inevitable mid-show match involving Miz or Ziggler, a tag team match if it isn't a repeat, then skip through the ME to see if anything interesting happens.

So yeah, fuck SD. Last year it was good as hell though, it really just depends on what they do with it. And I watch Raw every week and NXT when I remember, and ME if the advertised match involves Miz, Ziggler, Ryback, Team Hell No, or Rhodes Scholars.

Re: Wrestling fans watch NXT over Smackdown?

Not my case. I only watch RAW, SmackDown and Main Event weekly, I have never watched a full NXT show, just 4 or 5 segments of it in all my life. Hell, I have ever watched more Saturday Morning Slam than NXT.

Re: Wrestling fans watch NXT over Smackdown?

I am loving NXT, mainly because I am interested in up and coming talent. I haven't watched SD in three months... maybe if it was live but I just read the spoilers. Never watched Main Event either. It just doesn't have anything that's telling me why I should watch it!

Top 10 WWE Matches of 2016

1. Gargano and Ciampa v The Revival: NxT TakeOver Toronto
2. Sami Zayn vs Shinsuke Nakamura: NxT TakeOver Dallas
3. American Alpha vs The Revival, NxT TakeOver Dallas
4. Miz v Dolph Ziggler: No Mercy
5. Cedric Alexander v Kota Ibushi, CWC
6. John Cena v AJ Styles Summerslam 2016
7. Kevin Owens v Sami Zayn, Battleground 2016
8. TJ Perkins v Kota Ibushi: CWC Finals

Re: Wrestling fans watch NXT over Smackdown?

I started watching NXT when it took over FCW, and I look forward to NXT more than I do Raw most of the times. I think it is just a fresh of breath air. Plus, who doesn't love Dusty Rhodes as a GM lol?

Try being informed instead of just opinionated.

I DVR all three but I find I only watch RAW and NXT. Smackdown episodes build up over the weeks and I end up deleting them all without watching one. I trace it back to when Sandow made more frequent appearances on RAW. Even before that, he was the only reason I watched Smackdown at all.

RAW is the soap opera, NXT is the wrestling. I love the small arena atmosphere Full Sail provides aswell.
