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

You know what, I'm done watching the NXT Women segments for now I think. I haven't really cared for how it's been booked since the end of Asuka's reign, so I think that this Shayna crap and fucking over Kairi for the sake of her Reign of Terror is the final straw. As long as she's there, I don't watch.

I'll still watch the other stuff though, that stuff isn't boring an repetitive as Hell after all.

All of the guys in UE are more talented and have way more experience than a fucking Shane “Swerve” Strickland with that stupid ass nickname.


Fuck outta here with that bullshit.

And Shayna's only chance at a call-up was alongside Ronda. And if she's done for the time being, it means Shayna is NXT4life. Baszler turns 39yo in August for crying out loud.

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

I loved the closing angle so much. First one in months on this show I've enjoyed. IO saving her best friend but costing her everything in doing so is some great storytelling. IO about to cut a bitch, or three

Buddy vs Dream was very, very good to the shock of no one. ***1/2

Buddy returning to NXT as a conquering hero who became CW champion, and one of the best wrestlers in the world in the process, after his last run ended with him spending 12 months on the Florida loop in front of the same 40 people every week is some accidental incredible full circle storytelling.

I hate Johnny so much, and I hate that I do. I LOVED this man 12 months ago, but the last year has forever tarnished him in my eyes. Fucking heartbreaking to tell you the truth.

I hope Roddy is the one to beat him for the belt. He's the one with an actual backstory that should make him the top face of the show. Not to mention being maybe the best wrestler in the entire company is more than enough reason to go with him.

Whelp, set myself up for heartbreak again. Fucking NXT.

Adam Cole is too good, he needs that rematch against Gargano and he needs to win it. I'm pretty sure this teasing of TUE breaking up is just a front to help Cole win the title, similar to what ROH did when they teased Cole breaking away from the kingdom.

I think I'm losing you fam, Roddy besting Gargano sounds terrible especially as a face. Even when they were "building" Roddy up back when Roode was champ, the fans still struggled to care. Roddy isn't top guy made. The only man that should knock off Gargano is Cole, that's where the story is going and that's what the fans want. Roddy can have the midcard NA Title because that's where he's best suited at.

Roddy is bland af, they had to put him in the UE because people didn't cared about him, he shouldn't be nowhere near the NXT title scene or face of the brand position, put him against VD, he is charismatic enough for both.

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

I dunno if it's because I'm still burnt out from Wrestlemania last weekend but I just wasn't really digging this week's show for some reason. Opening match was good, Gargano/UE segment was okay but that was it for me. Didn't care to see Kairi/Shayna again. I swear I've said this a few times in the past but Duke/Shafir just look like such dweebs whenever they're on a TV screen. It just looks awkward, plus their gear sucks.

But god damn, Adam Cole is such a good talker. He's just so charismatic, I'm always paying attention to whatever he says whenever a mic is in his hand.

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

Dream and Buddy had a really fun match. Dream, while he's not the best in ring guy in the world, just does things in that ring that makes him stand out from everything else. Whether that's his charisma, his height, whatever else. And Murphy brought his usual brand of offense to make for a fun ride.

The Street Profits are so frustrating at times. They are very talented and while I understand their gimmick is supposed to be very over the top, at times it goes so over the top where it's so annoying I want their opponents to kick their ass. That and they keep hanging around the bottom of the division feuding with either The Mighty or the Forgotten Sons, not getting the chance to shine at the main level.

The Gargano/Cole promo was really fun. When Gargano can get away from the prototype babyface shtick for a second, he's a pretty funny guy. I loved how his promo basically could have summed up as "Scoreboard Bitch!" The "You Tapped Out Chants" added to the segment as well. And it was nice to see an angry Adam Cole and have him show that fire.

The stuff with Roddy and Regal backstage was intriguing. Roddy getting the match with Johnny, Cole's disappointed look. I still think it ends up being a swerve and no one turns on anyone, but it's interesting.

OK, I skimmed through the entrances so maybe I missed an announcement, but why did they announce Lee vs. Dijak for this show only not to do it? Like I get Lee is hurt, but why announce the match then?

Anyways, I'm happy for Dijak at least getting a squash win and an eventual title match against Dream.

The Baszler vs. Kairi match was basically a short sprint of their usual spots. The real stuff to talk about the stuff after the match. Kairi's time is up. And Io got her friend to disqualified and then Shayna made her watch as she destroyed Kairi's arm. So that's a strong story to play with and it gives Io something to fight for, but it will only matter if Io wins in the end.

Roddy's PWG title run has show he can be a top guy, he just needs a chance. I've got no problems with Cole beating Grappling Emote, I'd just prefer Roddy.

Either way get the belt of this fucking dweeb.
