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

New NXT UK.

— Imperium cut a bland promo and kill some jobbers. I'd buy an Imperium t-shirt though, haha.

— Oh, so they are doing a World of Sport style gimmick match?

— Nixon Newell makes her NXT UK in ring... debut? Return? Something. That jobber she faced was hot as hell. Newell ain't so bad herself, either. They putting Newell straight into the title picture?

— The fuck was that whole Darr/Seven segment.

— I honestly do not care about the NXT Tag Title picture at all.

For someone who was recovering at the PC for almost a year, Tegan isn't in the best shape she could have been in. Look at Ciampa when he came back...

I think she looked fine. Sure she looks different but she hardly looks out of shape.

She's hardly gone full Sami Zayn.

You have to be able to bring it with someone like Kay Lee Ray. Seeing as Nox already broke her collarbone at SWA a few years ago and also has two shot knees, unless she drastically changes her style, she isn't going to last long. I hope I'm wrong as she's probably one of the Top 5 best Female wrestlers to come out of Britain.
I doubt shes going into a feud with KLR, i think that was just a tease for a future feud down the road, planting the seeds more or less. I see KLR and Toni continuing their feud to 1 more match.

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

I really think it is letting booking get carried away with itself when it is giving Tegan Nox a shot at Kay Lee Ray so soon. She just got there. It would seem to me the shot needs to be towards Piper Niven. Rhea Ripley would be next, but since Rhea is now feuding with Jinny then Rhea doesn't seem likely. Build up some more of your B-listers like Xia Brookside or Isla Dawn in the meantime.

I can tell it's going to be a lot harder for KLR to carry this belt to crowd satisfaction than Toni and Rhea did. KLR is going to have to tear the houses down every match to get people talking about her like a star, right now it doesn't feel like she has enough rec.

Is Kassius Ohno so useless now that he has to get in there with this errand boy Scala every week until Ohno loses and that's supposed to get Scala over with the fans? Nobody cares about Sid Scala. I'm not even sure why Ohno sticks around for this long; his career's been going nowhere in NXT.

No Tyler around, where is he? Not a very productive week for UK.

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

Wanted a Lord Mount-Evans rules match since the UK brand was announced. This wasn't exactly who I would have put together. I was craving a Jack Gallagher vs Tyler Bate match. Granted it looked like it would have been Jack Gallagher in Scala's spot which would have been better but still I am glad they did it. Scala was never believable as a credible opponent unfortunately.

When HHH talks (rightly) about there needing to be a point in establishing new titles, a Lord Mount-Evans title makes much more sense than anything else and would give the UK brand more identity. Like the womens tag titles should have been, it could be an opportunity for anyone on the other brands (likely under the NXT/205 umbrella) to cross over. I think there could be some tremendous matches just with the current UK roster, let along some mouthwatering matches with people like Kushida, Gulak, Gaza, Gable etc.

The UK shows are a touch directionless and generic now they seemed to have chosen generic venues to match other WWE brands and have no PPV in sight to build to. I wonder if they will replace Vic Joseph and with someone British if the rumours of heading to Raw are true.

She should really join forces and bring the House of Couture stable to NXT UK. It's basically semantics between the gimmicks. Arrogant bitter actress/singer vs arrogant bitter Fashionista even the mannerisms and promos are the same.

Off topic, I am interested to see where the Title scene goes over the next year. While with good in ring storytelling like the Bate/Walter match can make a loss more believable there really isn't anyone convincing other than Mastiff who took the loss to Coffey, who could also be believable. Maybe they will try and build Luke Menzies when they tape in Hull?

Rusev vs Walter would have been amazing but that is out now he reappeared on the main roster. Sheamus or Cesaro would be good draws for getting people to tune into the show. I really hope they can smooth over the fuck up of releasing him the first time round and bring Rampage back into the NXT fold.
