damn you people get butthurt way too easy. They need to learn the WWE style, not just learn how to wrestle. Nakamura, Styles, and many others are great, best in the world, but their style might not mesh with the WWE style, hence the learning curve.

Thinking about it... Gallows and Anderson on NXT for a while might have been interesting and allow WWE only fans to get to know them a bit.

The problem is not that they put experienced people in NXT - the problem is how long they're keeping them there.

AJ Styles was WWE champion barely 7 months after his debut, while Samoa Joe is JUST NOW trying to make a debut on the main roster. How many valuable years of his career did he waste in NXT?

NXT should be for DEVELOPMENTAL talent only, not experienced guys who are already well known and very popular.

Triple H is talking absolute bullshit.
To be fair AJ didn't have a dick drawn on his face, put on a lot of weight and in his main roster debut match leave his opponent fucked up spine wise. Joe had issues leaving TNA and initially he wasn't even signed to a full deal as he first took a deal that let him book his own Indy dates and work nxt tv like Rhyno. He signed a full deal months later to work with nxt.

And I disagree that NXT should be for developmental talent only. There should be a third brand just like there was ecw. What should happen is there needs to be another developmental like FcW or OVW and DSW.

Nxt is a success. No matter how you look at it HHH created a touring brand with guys who tna, ROH, and njpw had and made them draw. He set them up to sell out conventions which they hadn't done before. He set them up to fill up arenas like Brooklyn. He made it so just the nxt brand itself without the performance center was making money.

They need to teach guys who work njpw how to work their actual hard camera setups. Njpw and ROH aren't taped with the same hard camera setup or even angles from cameraman. They don't have the production level. A Finn Balor entrance at Takeover makes those wk11 entrances look like a high school student shot them. They need to teach guys how to slow down and less is more at times so you don't have a no sell fear like Zayn tends to go into it a flippy mess like the cws and Neville had.

AJ was an exception. That said AJ came out to a great pop at the rumble and crickets to Miz TV the next night. Miz won that segment back over with AJ sitting there by his mic skills as he had AJ being cheered without saying a word. AJ knocked a guys teeth out two weeks in and he didn't even get heat because Miz in his own words in front of people said shit happens Not a big deal, which is a vast contrast from when RVD for example had heat on him for similar shit to start his career. Jericho helped AJ get accilimated to the style on the fly. By the time reigns came it was all fucking money. AJ is phenomenal but he is also humble enough to not look at guys like Miz or Jericho and ignore their help. Some people are stupid enough to look at them and ignore because they think they know enough, like Mistico complaining they paired him with Chavo to enter into the company and skip developmental.

Gallows and Anderson could benefit from mic skills and mannerism teaching to be honest. That said they did come in fairly fine because of a combo of their own skills and the fact the Usos were their initial pairing and helped them. That said they aren't strong enough as a tandem to get themselves over. They can't talk. They are just a tall and short bald guy with attitudes. Their too sweet gestures don't go over with an audience that had the real deal.

Guys like EY, Roode, and the like all actually took a step up going from tna to nxt. They went from no house shows to house shows. They went from not filling out arenas to packing them. They make good money. They keep their names and move merch. And in a case of a guy like Aries I honestly want someone to pitch why he would be over when he couldn't get over for his first 2-3 months in nxt to nakamura and No Way Jose helped get him over. He hasn't been this great ring worker, he doesn't have a phenomenal body, or look. He is in a spot he will do well in at 205 Live, but he wasn't fit at all to be a player on raw or sd. Guys like strong fit that mold. I will be the first to admit though I could see Roode and EY going far, EY farther than Roode actually if he wasn't working the sanity gimmick and got to be a nut face as he can pull of the Ambrose lunatic stick way better

Honestly the benefit to going there is learning the camera setup, learning the agent and writer structure, and learning to adjust to the road dates gradually.

AJ is an exception but that doesn't mean people like Asuka, Nakamura, or he like should all get that treatment.

AJ is a case of Exhibit A let them make the jump and Balor is a case of Exhibit B, make them put in the work and reap the benefit. Both exhibits are damn good

Styles says now he wished he had gone to NXT. No you didn't Styles. You wanted straight to the main roster and it was the better move for you

Apparently it takes two years to learn where the camera is.

Re: Triple H Comments On Why AJ Styles, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows Didnít Go Through NXT.

I think Anderson and Gallows would have gotten the same type of treatment regardless. However, I don't necessarily think Anderson and Gallows are used bad by WWE standards. They are always around the tag titles and are featured week to week. Obviously they are booked to shit compared to a Pro-Wrasslin environment, but that's just WWE.

But an NXT run would have been nice, and they'd have had some great matches with actual chances to put on great performances.

They only took Anderson and Gallows to help with getting AJ to come, they are probably the worst booked act in WWE over the past year and that's really saying something.

This is the guy the IWC wants running the company? He's just like Vince.
