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

It was a good episode. A lot of good moments have already been highlighted but I think Rhea Ripley deserves some love. She cut a real good promo and seems to really be embracing her cocky, tough girl character. She has all the potential in the world

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

New NXT UK.

— Weird opening segment. Ringkampf renamed, talking about how they are professional and the mat is sacred after they just cheated so I guess this version of Ringkampf are scoundrel heels? Well, that sounds terrible. Then the weird shit with the camera effects, no idea what that was about. The eventual Ringkampf BSS match should be great though.

— I wish Gallagher was in NXT UK rather than 205 Live. Given the screw finish, can we expect to see him more often? Also was that Chris Roberts refereeing this match? I didn't know he was signed with WWE. I actually quite enjoyed this match, either way, this much better suited Ohno than some of the other matches he has been in, even if this match went a little long for me.

— I skipped the Women's match as I really don't care about this division on NXT UK. I don't really care about the tag division as it is right now, either.

Really enjoyed this week's show:

- British Strong Style are back. Yey!!
- Wrestlers whose second language
doing promo better than anyone on Raw or SD.
- Nice camera loss segment to build context
- Good to see A Kid
- Ohno and Gallagher was so enjoyable to watch. Two actual wrestlers who connected with the crowd. Pure entertainment.
- Toni Storm in leather and denim!!
- Womens Championship was well paced with solid in ring performance. Thought it was going to be Samuals getting pounded but wasn't. Good to see A WWE product with females that wasn't a botch fest.

Highlight of this show... It didn't have Shane Mcmahon in it.

Making a stable of Fabian and Marcel with Walter is a great idea.

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

So this week's NXT UK was basically a one match show and I treated it as such. I was actually surprised by how good this match was, too. NXT UK is so dry and bland as a product,it is so easy to forget how good their roster is. They picked four guys for this match who really contrasted and complimented one another and they went out and put on some really slick and imaginative action. Devlin got absolutely wrecked here, I wonder if it was because he is the smallest guy in the match, although I wouldn't say anyone came out of this looking bad, everyone got a good showcase.

Banks v WALTER for the UK Title could be an excellent match too, with Banks bringing the explosiveness the much slower WALTER cannot really deliver to make the match perhaps a little more dynamic than some of WALTER's defences have been so far.

I feel like Rhea Ripley could probably move over to main NXT or even to the MR at this point. It feels like she's already accomplished all she can in NXT UK.

Awful show this week, apart from Zacks promo. The main fight was predictable.

Banks and Devlin just seemed restricted after sss16.

New NXT UK.

Basically a one match show. A few side notes: I am surprised Dragunov is allowed to be his indie character given how weird it is, that promo from Storm was awful but I enjoyed that video package for Banks a lot.

In terms of the match that actually mattered here, it was unsurprisingly great. Excellent car crash action in the way in which these sorts of matches allow. Really happy for Wolfe as well, NXT UK bloody loves a faction it seems. Still not really sure how I feel about Imperium not being able to win without scoundrelly means but I'll give them a chance to let it play out.
