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

For those curious, here are the announced/scheduled matches for next week's NXT (which have been taped already from a previous house show):

- Kushida vs Drew Gulak in a submission match

- Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir vs Io Shirai and Candice LeRae

- The Undisputed Era (Roddy and Kyle) vs Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch

I was at this show - it seemed really odd to me that they were taping this episode there. I don't recall them doing the weekly show outside of Full Sail (except the stuff taped at Takeovers)

Anyway really looking forward to see how it turned out. Hopefully we were a good audience!

Good episode. Wish they weren't always ending it early lately though since it's my favorite hour of wrestling each week and NXT only gets an hour per week. Could probably fit in another short match to give a newer talent a bit of exposure rather than 10 minutes of ads before the 9PM timeslot.

I tend to like the post-produced house show episodes a little more. The crowd is dimly lit because they don’t have their TV lighting rig but it’s really not necessary for the brand IMO. Would be cool if they did more of them - they tend to have the cameras recording at almost all of the on the road shows anyways (with a smaller crew of like four camera operators). Wouldn’t mind them doing these style episodes every week eventually. Maybe they’d have to change the positioning of the commentary team to an “area backstage (which would actually be at the Perfomance Center)” and tape the backstage stuff at the Performance Center but the positives would far out weigh the negatives in having it shot with different crowds all year IMO. Probably won’t happen anytime soon but would be cool to see.

New NXT.

— Can we have a two man commentary team forever please?

— So what is the deal with the new venue this week, was this taped at a house show? Why?

— I wanted to love that Submission match but I didn't. Gulak tapping almost instantly sucked to me and the match just felt like it was never flowing very smoothly and lots of moves lacked their usual sense of impact. Just felt quite clunky and soft.

— Hey NXT less of that propaganda, thanks.

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

What a great main event, my style of wrestling, just a bunch of brutal looking strikes and selling, it made wrestling look as close to a real fight as it possibly can.

But gotdamn there wasn't a single ounce of charisma or personality between the four of them. I normally would skip a match with these kinds of CAW type dudes but I was curious to see what kind of shape KOR was in after TO XXV.

Also can anybody explain to me why Jaxson Ryker is NXT's Braun Strowman? I could understand if everyone in NXT was 205 Live size but there's Dawkins, Lee, Dijakovic, Reeves, Riddy Mo, and Bononi. I'm just not buying a 6'0 230 guy as a monster.

He got injured in the house show the day before this episode was taped (that's why it was Roddy/Kyle in the match instead of Bobby/Kyle), Bobby worked through the injury during Takeover, that's why when he came out to celebrate with Cole at the end of the show he was using the sling again

Marina Shafir is a special kind of awful, she just looks as if she has no clue whats going on inside the ring at all times, its like they took someone from the audience and threw them into a match, shes that fucking bad. Duke isn't good by any means either its just she looks like fucking Bret Hart in comparison to Shafir inside the ring.
