Quality of Takeovers hasn't dipped dramatically. Takeover NY this past April was one of the best shows on American soil ever imo. 2018 had incredible shows like New Orleans, Wargames, Chicago and Summerslam Takeover was great show too

Last Takeover Toronto didn't sellout out in 2016. This show is in course to draw better.

My theory is that people are perceiving that the Takeovers have dipped in quality because the Takeovers have been for a long time now, are usually using more or less the same type of formula that viewers would expect, and so they've become burned out with it.

It's rather easy to get burnt out with this kind of stuff. Especially when you keep seeing the same champions win, the same blitzy no-sell styles performed and the same people booked on card positions that felt like the show before it, etc.

These guys work hard, very hard, to put on a good worked match. Yet that's not really the problem. I say they should work smarter, not harder. Viewers need surprising reactions. They need something they won't expect. They are tired of NXT's monotony.

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

The Takeovers are still quality, but NXT's storylines and booking definitely have been on cruise control it seems for a while now. So yes, there is monotony but I place the blame more on the overarching booking than the Takeovers themselves.

I don't even particularly think the booking from a script standpoint is *that* much better than the main roster. It's simpler, because it's a shorter weekly show. And it's more that they generally utilize talent in ways that the fans are more amenable to (Shayna aside) than the main roster does. But sometimes they fall in love with the same talent, good as they are, and that turns into monotony.

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

All through this Breakout Tournament everyone i wanted to win lost, and the same for the finals, i like ACH/Jordan Myles, but Trevor Lee deserved that, he's got the more unique look, the better mic skills, ACH is so generic imo, just another flippy guy in shiny kickpads. Now he's gonna get some NA Tittle match or NXT title match that he will lose and we're gonna have 1 more flippy guy added to the roster, yay....

The best about the show was the Io promo.

Yes. Everyone in this tournament is under contract to WWE. Shaw is working the Largo Loop though.

His feud as a creepy stalker of Christy Hemme is one of the last good memories I have from Impact Wrestling, I hope they do something similar with him.
