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

New NXT.

— So Percy quit WWE? Nothing of value lost really, although I'd argue Beth was even worse here. Lifelessly reading from her script. All we want is a two man booth and at least Beth was quiet for long sections of this.

— This UE story is all over the place but I had to laugh at the bloodstained flipflop. So silly. Shame they ruined it a bit later on with them showing Riddle with no corresponding injuries. Or no real injuries at all really, just them putting a bandage around his middle like some kind of live action anime.

— Gargano/Cole again for the NXT Title at the next TakeOver? Well you delivered that announcement as flatly as it deserved tbh.

— A pretty clunky match between Lee and Bononi but Lee got to look strong and I am just glad he is back.

— Man that Kushida/Reeves match was awful. However, a wild Gulak appears. The reaper to drag you away to forgottenhood in 205 Live.

— What were those last five minutes? Have the Raiders relinquished the titles again or are we getting some car crash multi-man for the titles at the next TakeOver? If they have relinquished the titles, why not just let the Raiders and the Profits have a proper match?

Yeah why are they so dead set on 3 man commentary teams? And Beth is god awful on commentary, she doesn't sound at all natural, she sounds like shes reading right off a script, and at times its like shes not even there and sitting there not saying a word.

Yeah I don't get it at all. It seems like they know if they have three high charisma personalities in a booth they'll all clash so in response we get like two high charisma personalities + an extra cardboard cut out of a human being to spout soulless company lines like some sort of text to speech software. These extra parts end up being such a non entity you wonder why they even have them there in the first place. It is exactly the same across every brand WWE has.

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

How do they justify Cole getting another title match when he lost a 2 out of 3 falls match? Things don't get much more definitive than that in wrestling.

NXT's booking has been complete trash, first they drastically overextended the Gargano/Ciampa feud, then they did that corny pseudo-turn, then they give Johnny a consolation prize that he loses in his first defense, then he wins the NXT title on the flattest note possible story-wise, now they're doing an unnecessary rematch that neither guy can afford to lose. If Johnny loses he looks like Sasha Gargano and if Cole loses he and TUE look like a bunch of jobbers. Seriously, I don't even like TUE but why do they even exist if they're not going to hold all the titles at the same time?

They also let Shayna eviscerate the entire women's division and the tag division isn't any better off where the only team with enough credibility to challenge the War Experience Raider Machine is the freaking Forgotten Sons.

Also are they trying to kill Kushida's hype out the gate? Could they have put him against any 2 worse opponents? If this guy is a CW put him up against Humberto or Mendoza. I'm not seeing any charisma there so the least he could do is show me some amazing flippy shit.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

You're not going to see that from KUSHIDA considering he isn't a high flyer (Also, Humberto is bad so please not him). Instead, he is pretty much regarded as one of the best grapplers in Japan, not that I think WWE will show that because of their submission are for heels stance that they usually have. As for charisma, I like KUSHIDA but I don't know about that either. Then again, he is usually more over in the States and UK then he was in his own country. One thing is for sure, putting him against Kona Reeves won't help anyone.

Cesar Bononi has been jobbing forever. Do something with him or let the guy go. But they could also be seasoning him so that he may be good one day.

There is a reason Wesley Blake is still in NXT. He just looks goofy as hell.

Konami Reeves is still refining his character and once he puts it all together he'll be on of the better wrestlers there are.

Kona's character is coming along quite hateably but I haven't seen anything special in his ring work, he seems like a big standard brawler without a good working strike or any big spots.

Are you seeing something I'm missing?

Damn, even you're sick of NXT's shit. That's not me being an asshole, either. I know how much you loved NXT in 2015 (Never forget how much we wanted Baron to be the champ)

HHH's bullshit has ruined everything.

KUSHIDA isn't a flippy dude. He's a technical dude who dominated the JNR division for years, and reigned as the ACE. Like, he can and will do big spots, but its not his game.
The match against Gulak will rule, and I think you'll really enjoy it.
