Could've had something special with a Kairi vs. Io feud but no, Sharon Corbin's reign needs to continue.

At this point, the only purpose of the Mae Young Classic is to feed and sacrifice more girls to the altar of Shayna(case in point Kairi, Dakota, Candice, Bianca from the 1st MYC and Mia & possibly Io from the 2nd, not counting PC girls like Kacy, Taynara & Xia Li)

Yes, it's impossible to overstate just how bad Shayna has been for that division. They finally had a solid class to build behind after Asuka left but they just sacrificed everyone to her. And for what gain? I still have no idea.

Pretty sure part of the issue is Dave's fault, and another part is Triple H's fault.

Triple H because he has an MMA boner. It seems he thinks no one should be allowed to ever look legit over a former MMA fighter, even though outside of Ronda (and arguably Shayna, although to a MUCH lesser extent [15W-11L]), Jessamyn and Marina were both complete failures in the MMA world (I think their combined record was like 3W-12L).

Part of it is also Dave's fault because he spent months talking up how quickly Jessamyn and Marina were progressing apparently, until he actually saw them in person, and he recanted his statement soon after.

I think the more concerning thing is that if Io loses at Takeover: XXV, her NXT career is pretty much toast. And I'm gonna be questioning why they didn't just call her up alongside Kairi.

Shayna's already peaked in NXT. She's had zero character growth/evolution over the past 6 months or so. Jessamyn and Marina are completely worthless and with Sasha likely not returning, there's no point in keeping them around if they continue to suck as much as they do.

Here's the sad thing: Dakota Kai tore her ACL a few months into Shayna's current title reign. There's a very real possibility that she's going to go through the whole surgery/physical rehab/cleared to work out at the PC process and things in the division will be no different from when she first went out. That is a 7-8 month span of things being the exact same(and let's be fair it was getting stale and dire even back then).



That is just sad & pathetic. I really don't know what their game is. She really should've dropped it at Takeover: NY. The only rational reason I could think of for why she's keeping the title is they want her to break Asuka's record as longest-reigning champion.


Which is madness. But here's the grave reality: You have a division where all the Faces have been steamrolled by Shayna & friends; a division where thanks to several call-ups earlier this year is severely lacking in terms of credible and strong Heels. Last year you at least had some strong Heels built up for the next Face champ. But, nope, now we have nothing on either side of the spectrum.

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

I don't think they care about the record. She's still a long way off from that. Triple H isn't petty or obsessed in that way like Vince is.

I truthfully don't know the answer. I sort of understood the still incorrect logic of him putting the title back on her in October. He hoped that those two worthless pieces of trash would get better. But now that it's clear they won't, and with Ronda and Sasha gone, there really is no point. He just won't change the title for some dumb reason.

At this point I'm just hoping they're doing a long build to SummerSlam weekend since I don't see Io getting the title in June.

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

I'm not ruling out Io winning the title in June, and the rematch being held during Takeover: Toronto either though. Or Shayna just being called up after Takeover XXV, assuming Becky retains any title at MITB. Because Shayna vs Becky is a feud that is really should happen and makes complete sense from a booking perspective. And there is usually one shocking moment during a Takeover.

WWE is marketing this as a major Takeover, since its their 25th one, even if it is taking place in the middle of nowhere.

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

It's now or never for the Street Profits. Even after a year of 50/50 booking with teams like TM61 and the Forgotten Sons, they're still over. They're talented. People want them to win. It's time for them to get a chance. Either that, or TUE gets the belts back and the Profits win from them.

I was surprised that NXT did get that line of "if that is your real names" in there. Probably a little therapy for HHH, lol.

I loved how they shot Cole's interview transitioning into the commotion in the background. And Roddy stealing Riddle's sandle as proof his battle, priceless. This does put the idea of Roddy and Cole being at odds on ice for now. Whether the story is done or if this just another chapter in the story remains to be seen.

My boy Keith Lee is back and it's awesome to see him back and so over. He's had his string of bad luck, but I also feel like I've seen him squash guys so many times times now. Give the guy something interesting.

Vanessa Borne's an interesting one. #1, she has one of the better entrance themes out there. She's got a great look. She's got all that. But even after what's felt like awhile in developmental, she still hasn't really put it together yet.

The main event was fun while it lasted and I won't give away spoilers to how the whole tag team situation shakes out so I'll save my thoughts about that until then.

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

I just realized the whip sound on Belair's entrance was for her hair. Jesus, I'm late to the party.


What happened to Riddle? Did Roddy stab him? I hope it's a work, Roddy siding with Riddle and Gargano, revealing at Takeover. Otherwise, Regal is just letting his wrestlers have gang wars

I'm excited for a large tag match at Takeover now. The "If that even is your real name" line wasn't used well. I appreciate the jab, but I wasn't feeling it from Dawkins. I still hope Street Profits win the titles in a 4 way match

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

Johnny Gargano vs Adam Cole should be good again

Hopefully, the Undisputed Era stay united for a while longer so Cole can win the NXT title soon

I'm pulling for the Street Profits to win the NXT Tag titles off the Viking Raiders soon

Kushida vs Drew Gulak has the potential to be a fun match

I bet Roderick Strong ambushed Matt Riddle from behind, gave him some of his nasty Backbreakers (which explains Riddle's back being taped up), and then stoled his sandal

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

So why did they take away Jessie's nerdy tomboy attire? it made her unique, now shes just wearing some generic tights that looks like something every other female jobber wears. Thats great take away something that made her unique and make her look like everyone else.

If that was truly the end of Cole and Rodrick's feud between one another then i don't get what the whole point of it actually was, it didn't lead to Roddy leaving UE, didn't lead to a match, just "Hey i just attacked a guy you don't like " "Oh really? welcome back buddy!" its gonna look really dumb and pointless if that was indeed the end of Cole and Roddy's spat.
