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

You'd think more people would think to attack the fingers like Dunne does. It seems like a minor body part to attack, but hey...getting your fingers all contorted seems painful af.

Closing time. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

Dunne/Gibson just had the WWE match of the week (Raw, SD, 205 Live). Fantastic match.

It was good no doubt, Gibson is the most underrated guy in wrestling. I didn't like how the finish made him look like a dumbass though. Still *** 1/4-1/2 match easy.

It seems clear the direction is headed for WarGames being TUE v. BSS v. WarRaiders & Ricochet. With Dunne saying in a backstage segment that he wants the NA Title I wonder if they'll have a stipulation where the tag belts & NA Title are on the line in the match.

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

It was a decent match between Gibson and Dunne, but I am not really into that british submission style, so I didn't enjoyed as much. And I thought the ending was a bit dumb tbh, Gibson takes Pete's mouthguard after leaving him laying, but as soon as he was going to throw it Pete hulks up, breaks his fingers, uses the Bitter End and wins, it was a bit sudden, didn't like it.

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

Bianca vs. Deonna was a nice showcase for Deonna IMO. I'm not her biggest fan, but she was very fluid in her movements. Bianca seemed, IDK, a bit lost at times I guess. She's had better performances.

I don’t think I loved it as much as others but Dunne vs. Gibson was your typical “pretty good” Pete Dunne match that never quite went beyond that.

Great match between Dunne and Gibson, though that thing with the mouthpiece and the finisher submission escape jarred me a bit, though I loved Dunne doing it by biting the ropes.

Yep. It's gonna be great. I can't wait.

Probably no titles on the line, though. Dunne and Ricochet could dissent from each other next week, leading to a title match that Undisputed interferes in.

The women's match at War Games seems fairly clear now too. They were again talking about how Bianca didn't get to compete in the #1 contender's match and hyping her undefeated streak. Bianca is also getting increasingly arrogant. It's almost certainly gonna be Kairi vs. Bianca there. Bianca will likely lose though. She's not ready yet and someone needs to take her down.

Biggest question mark is who challenges Ciampa?

Also, since we saw Deonna tonight....



Looks like Io is gonna debut at this set of tapings.

Ciampa vs Black II makes the most sense, assuming Black is ready. It's not a marquee, but it doesn't need to be on the War Games II card.

I also think it will be Ciampa vs. Black in the latter's last NXT match, but we can't be sure yet. It actually is the biggest match they could do right now though, with Gargano out of the picture for a while and it being too early for Keith Lee and Matt Riddle.

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

I don't think they will debut Io in tomorrow's tapings, it's mandatory to all of the NXT talent to be at Full Sail the day of the tapings
