Get well soon Noam. Sucks to see him get hurt again fairly soon after just recovering from another injury.

Watched Rhea's match with Xia. Rhea is at her best when she has someone like Xia and especially someone like Kacy Catanzaro that she can throw around and play the monster. I'd love to see her against Sasha one day for that very reason.

Dunne and WALTER have taken the less is more approach to their build which suits them. They'll do their talking in the ring.

The sad thing about NXT UK is that they have talent. Dune, Bate, Seven, WALTER, Gibson, Devlin, Dragunov etc. for the men. Toni, Rhea, Piper, KLR, etc. for the women. They're building a solid tag division.

But it's such a bare minimum show when it comes to stories. There's creative character or creative storylines. It's just so basic. Now you can say that about regular NXT as well. But they do have some colorful characters and colorful stories to back it up as well. NXT UK just feels like a bland show with some talented guys on it.

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

There were pretty much 3 major highlights worth recommending from tonight's episode of NXT UK:

- Trent Seven vs Joe Coffey was a pretty decent main-event that was thrilling throughout the whole contest (easily the match of the week too)

- Zack Gibson (who was accompanied with James Drake) cut a solid promo where he put themselves over as the new guards of NXT UK, and hyped up their next challengers being underdogs

- Kenny Williams/Amir Jordan vs European Union was a half-decent opener

Why is Killer Kelly a jobber? I mean all she does is lose whenever shes in a match, she looks bad ass, she can wrestle i don't get why shes a jobber. I mean is she not signed to a fulltime deal or what?

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

The last episode had some really good matches.

Banks vs. Ohno was really good. Like, really good. Ohno hit all of his big moves, even a Rubix Cube. Banks was pretty impressive too. Ohno got to display his dickhead heel character very well. And the finish opens itself up for a rematch, which I'm totally down for.

Piper Niven had a really good debut, just a shame it's against Killer Kelly, who at the moment is just the jobber to the stars on the show. Why that is, who knows. But that aside, really strong debut. Piper will have no trouble in getting over.

And Toni and Jinny have a natural chemistry with one another. Jinny in particular is underrated in terms of how good she is in the ring and with her character. She knows how to use her frame in there. And Toni did her part per usual.

Keep stuff like this up and it will give me more a reason to watch on a consistent basis. The only thing I skipped was the Joseph Conners match. Can't explain why, but the guy does absolutely nothing for me.

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

New NXT UK.

- I always say I don’t like Banks because of residual bitterness carried over from his terrible title chase in PROGRESS but he really is lowkey one of the best parts about NXT UK.

- His match against Ohno is probably one of the best of his run since coming back to WWE, a low bar for sure but Ohno has faced some top talent who haven’t been able to draw out a match half as good as this. Don’t misunderstand the finish was still flat and the match overlong but this is one of the few times I’ve seen real value in having this current Ohno around.

- while Devlin’s promo was vaguely terrible, Devlin v WALTER for the UK championship? Yes please.

- I’m intrigued by how WALTER will play out as Champ, they don’t really want to have him as a transitional champ but do they want another really long and dominant reign straight after Dunne’s? Further to that will WALTER’s popularity even hold out? It seems people are already pretty polarised after that match at TakeOver.

- didn’t watch the main event. Storm is a babe but I don’t care about the women’s title on this show at all.

Walter vs Devlin would probably be my next UK Takeover Main Event, assuming no Dunne return match. A couple other television mainevents I wouldn't mind seeing for the title would be Walter vs Mastiff and Walter vs Trent Seven.
