Re: NXT Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]

One thing I don't like about Bianca is her bouncing during the entrance, her hand gestures, her entire entrance really. I guess it fits her character but I don't like it. However, she's a heel so that's okay. Once the bell rings everything about her entrance is forgotten though. Also Bianca seems to receive more and more cheers so I guess after her feud with Kairi she's going to turn face at some point.


Io could debut at tonight's tapings, I'm fairly sure she will. I also think she'll start as a face in Kairi's corner. She should turn against Kairi at Takeover Phoenix next January as start and build-up for their match at Takeover Brooklyn V at Mania weekend. That's also why she should debut tonight. Her betrayal will be more impactful if she acts as Kairi's best friend. Not for us of course since we smarks all expect it. :P (not only that, a lot of us want it to happen)

Also do you think we'll get Kairi vs Bianca at War Games? I mean wouldn't it make more sense for Kairi to face the winner of the MYC at that Takeover? I think Bianca should be Kairi's opponent at Takeover Phoenix. Who else would she face then? Bianca in two Takeover singles matches with Bianca losing both times? I don't think so to be honest.

I think you are spot on and we will find out it was them at Wargames. Eric Young will probably come out during Black's rematch with Ciampa and cost him the match.

It's pretty obvious that's what we're getting once any potential rematch with Shayna is out of the way. The commentators were hyping up Bianca's undefeated streak on NXT TV and she's getting increasingly arrogant, demanding to get what she deserves (IE: a title shot because she wasn't in the last match).

It's too soon for the winner of the MYC to get a title shot. It only takes place three weeks before War Games.

On a side note, I liked Deonna's entrance theme, I liked the instrumental stuff, very different to the usual hip hop/dance/pop music the women usually get

Ciampa? That would be predictable and obvious as hell, its definitely not gonna be him, its gonna be someone from left field you wouldn't think of, thats why i think its gonna be someone like Ohno, plus he could use a change of character and go on a heel run.

Re: NXT Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]

Doesn't change the fact that Ohno would be a waste of Black's time. He has much bigger fish to fry than wasting it on a jobber.

Ciampa would be predictable but make sense. If not him, someone from the main roster to give Black a logical exit from NXT, which is kind of where I'm leaning now. Black might have his swan song in a rematch with Ciampa at War Games (if not earlier) and then leave. The Eric Young hypothesis is intriguing. After all, Black sent Sanity packing from NXT, and they're all heels on the main roster. The whole thing fits Sanity's MO as well.

If Black doesn't get his rematch with Ciampa, there's nothing left for him to do in NXT.

Re: NXT Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]

Belair vs Purrazzo and Dunne vs Gibson were both decent this week.

Bianca impresses me everytime she's on TV episodes, she has everything going for her. She has the look, she has the charisma, she has the skill, she's still a bit green in places but she has such an impressive moveset, she pulls out the kind of moves that gets the crowds clapping, gasping and out of their seats. Deonna had a solid showcase here too.

Dunne vs Gibson was better than their match at the UK tapings, overall it was more solid, the psychology was better, I love both their styles, the way they target each other's limbs with effective moves here and there is a joy to watch. Really looking forward to the UK division, hopefully they bang it on the network in the next few weeks.

Well the whole point of it being Ohno would be to not make him a jobber anymore, elevate him to a serious threat and give him a dominate heel run.

I mean no one thought for a second Rikishi was the one who hit Stone Cold cause he was a comedy dancing jobber right? But it was him and he turned into a serious heel after that and was booked as a main event player for a short while.

As for Sanity and EY it could be them but they're jobbers as well now on SDL so it makes them no different than Ohno, so i don't see how they would be a much better option than Ohno, they're not exactly bigger fish atm.

Re: NXT Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]

Yeah, and Rikishi running over Stone Cold was a mistake they had to correct. If the plan is to elevate Ohno (which I don't buy for a second), Black feuding with him would still be a waste of time because we know he's coming to the end of his NXT tenure, unfortunately. Black either gets his rematch with Ciampa or goes straight to the main roster. There's nothing else for him to do.

If it was Sanity, Black could have a good debut feud for SD and hopefully start to get over there, though I of course expect main roster stupidity involved in such a feud.
