Possibly, but they also fast tracked Deonna to TV. They seem to want to fast track their big names to TV this year.

As an aside, someone joked about how Kairi has aligned herself with BSS/Mustache Mountain. Someone else said that when Io debuts, she should align herself with The Undisputed Era. To be honest, I wouldn't be opposed to that.

Also, Io tweeted about it, given how infrequently she has been using social media since joining it would be weird for her to tweet about being excited for the tapings if she wasn't doing anything, as she's already been to one taping since joining so far.

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

I hope they're not doing Kairi-Io at War Games. They should save that match for New York in April when they're competing with the G1 Supercard and need to put on an insane card.

Deonna looked good, but no signs of what her character will be in that match. Hopefully we get to see that soon, she's young but she could become a hit in the women's division if she grows into whatever her role will be well. Bianca was alright but we've seen better from her before. I'm almost certain Dakota Kai is going to the UK brand full time, there's just not enough room left for her to really make it in NXT with Kairi, Bianca, Io, Deonna, Lacey, and Candice all there and possibly more to come in the aftermath of the MYC.

The main event was fun and good. I absolutely love Gibson, perfect look for a heel, nice presence and mic ability, and a fantastic throwback theme which is congruent with his old school British wrestling style. Man, that UK brand is going to be something worth watching with Dunne, Bate, Gibson, Andrews, Seven, the Coffey brothers, Storm, Jinny, and Dakota all there, and more to come.

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

The thing is Deonna probably will be an enhancement talent for a few months, so that's why they don't have a problem with make her "debut" earlier and use her to make a pushed talent look good. It's similar to last year, where the pre show womens match for Takeover Brooklyn III was Peyton vs Sarah Logan, who also was in the MYC last year. Io probably will be pushed from the beggining, so I don't think they will rush her to a debut.

I enjoyed Dunne as per usual and it was good to see Deonna.

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

Didn't Black destroy Sanity shortly before they left NXT? Nikki Cross being revealed as a witness to his attack makes me think Sanity did it as revenge and that's how they'll eventually debut Aleister on SD.

Samoa Joe/Tetsuya Naito/Tomohiro Ishii/Meiko Satomura/Jay White

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

Man i love Gibson so much, his in ring style reminds me so much of Nigel, he even pulled out the Jawbreaker Lariat on Dunne tonight which looked fucking brutal. However i don't get why they had Gibson lose yet again to Dunne, not saying Dunne should have dropped the belt here but why even have the match? Why not have Noam Dar vs Dunne for the title?

I mean Noam did win the number 1 contenders match a while ago, would've made sense to ave that match here instead of having Gibson lose for a 2nd straight time to Dunne.

For some reason i got a feeling its gonna be revealed that Ohno took Black out, he aint got really nothing to do right now and they have been kinda building him up again lately.

Ohno would be a waste of Black's time. It really either needs to be Ciampa or someone from the main roster. It should center on whether Black gets his rematch at War Games or if he's just called up to the main roster right away.

I guess Bianca will be a face soon, she's a diamond waiting to be shined -J.R. Deonna is cute. I remember seeing a few of her matches in Philly at roh. Both put on a great match for the first time meeting.

Bianca's "E-S-T of N-X-T" gimmick is dumb. I mean I get the point that it's supposed to represent strongEST, fastEST, smartEST or whatever, but also could easily be stupidEST, ugliEST, weakEST, slowEST.
