Do you feel the invisibility in NXT Champion reign ?

I have been forgetting that there's even a Champion. I think they are booking Balor really bad here. He should be booked above everyone else.
He is competing in the Dusty Rhodes Challenge but that doesn't mean you completely forget that he's also the face of NXT.

I just saw his instagram post and literally had a recall moment like "Oh, How did I forget Balor is the NXT Champion"

I hope this changes soon. The next Takeover shouldn't be about only Women Wrestling. Balor needs an opponent to defend his title and I feel there isn't much story telling and preparation for that.

I don't give a fuck either way since I only watch NXT for the divas.

They're stalling Joe vs. Balor, presumably until Itami gets healthy and they can bring back the storyline surrounding who took him out.

That having been said, they have not done a good job of making Balor stand out as champion.

I think you accidentally put a 'd' on the front of that last word.

OP, I think similarly, but mostly because they haven't developed the Finn Balor character... at all. I guess he had that dumb documentary, or whatever they want to call it, about him but that didn't further the Balor story at all. Until they figure that out he'll still remain forgettable in my book. It's a shame to waste such an awesome alter ego like that.

Becaue even for the NXT writes, it's hard to write a compelling storyline for someone without ounce of character atm.

I agree. That documentary was a bit too soon. Balor should have been involved in a couple of big feuds before going there or better he should have been on the main roster by now. The documentary then would have made perfect sense.

Re: Do you feel the invisibility in NXT Champion reign ?

I'm probably THE MAIN DETRACTOR of Finn Balor in the NXT section (which is where this thread should be btw) and though I thought I shouldn't comment because I've not seen any NXT for two weeks now, I'm fairly sure that the booking right now is putting Finn and the NXT Championship as a second priority behind this tag tournament.

That being said, the outcome of the tag tournament is to put over one tag team and the NXT Champion, Finn Balor, with his next opponent for the title, so he's still a priority, but the idea is that he's not as important as the tag tournament in Dusty's name. Which, in a way, is nice, but when you know it's just to look that way, it kinda sucks.

Re: Do you feel the invisibility in NXT Champion reign ?

As talented as Balor is I don't get his character. One minute he has a normal ring attire, no face paint etc next minute he is all decked out as a completely different persona. What is he supposed to be???

Re: Do you feel the invisibility in NXT Champion reign ?

I'd have to agree. His reign has been very forgettable. He certainly doesn't exude the same aura as Zayn or Owens.

I've got to say, as much as I love the women, I feel like their hype is kind overshadowing the men in NXT. I suppose it's only fair that the women get some spotlight?

His character is boring. The doco was highly enjoyable but he is so soft spoken and kind of nerdy. That doesn't make for a particulrly exciting wrestler.

He also needs to change up his moveset a bit. Bit boring.
