Re: NXT Weekly Show Discussion Thread [NO SPOILERS BEFORE THE SHOWS AIR PLEASE]
New episode thoughts:
Opening tag was fine for what it was. The Mighty heel turn was what they needed but I'm still not invested in them. Ford and Dawkins are still entertaining though.
That is how you make sweet, adorable Kairi look like a killer. By busting out the Brock Lock, 3 Diving Elbows, and The Anchor while staring down Shayna at the same time. That same submission is how she should win the title.
The Cole vs. Ricochet promo made the most out a feud that hasn't had too much interaction between the participants.
The Dream and EC3 promo duel was the perfect mix of weird charisma for me.
Gotta say, as bummed as I am that Black is out of Saturday's match, that Gargano vs. Ciampa video package was just the best. The image of Johnny saying "my dream is to be NXT Champion" only to go straight to a shot of Ciampa holding the title was brilliant.
Bate vs. Strong had a lot of great transitions. Solid match overall.
