After the way HHH has been booking UE the past few months I wouldn't be surprised if they are the next faction that is going to be fed to Roman when they get called up. Or worse, end up like Sanity

Re: NXT Taping Spoilers [4/17/19 - 5/1/19]

Such a disappointment, especially after the whole "my treasure chest is empty."

I mean it's not like Kairi has done nothing in NXT to be fair. But relative to her talent and all of the fan fare that she came in with, they haven't used her to her full potential imo. I mean looking back having her beat Shayna clean to win the MYC feels weird because Shayna has clearly been the one that they were FAR more invested in:

-Despite losing, Shayna was almost immediately hot-shotted into a title feud with Ember, took the belt pretty quickly, and has held it more or less ever since aside from a brief interlude. And she's run through pretty much the entire division at this point. Kairi, meanwhile, was doing random stuff on the midcard for a long time.

-Kairi beat Shayna, but it was played up as a "lucky" pin and even Shayna dismissed it as a fluke. She had by far the shortest title reign in the belt's history (she's the ONLY NXT Women's Champion who didn't get a triple digit day run with the title), never got to defend it on PPV, or TV, or at a Takeover.

-Then she dropped it back to Shayna like a month later (which made Shayna look right about her win being "flukey") at Evolution, just because. Then she lost the rematch at the next Takeoever, and hasn't gotten close to winning it again ever since. Her entire title reign felt, like nothing, really.

-Etc.

So yeah, I feels like she (and most of the other women) have had their NXT tenures sacrificed on the alter of Shayna and her two not impressive friends. And the fact that Triple H would throw away a Io vs. Kairi Takeover match/feud like this is, baffling and lame.

At this point, Io needs to squash Shayna. It will be the only satisfying way to end this title reign.

Cole got a taste of what it was like to be booked like a star after Ciampa got injured, he took the ball and ran with it. And right before he could score the ball Old man H said "nope, not so fast. back to job guy Adam Cole"

Re: NXT Taping Spoilers [4/17/19 - 5/1/19]

About Shayna, let's not forget that when her push started NXT had 2 fairly over acts in Nikki Cross and the IIconics to be Ember's first challengers, Meltzer even reported that the original plan for the Rumble Takeover of 2018 was Nikki Cross vs Ember Moon, they even teased it at the final set of tapings of 2017, when Ember beat Peyton and after the match the Iiconics beat up Ember and Nikki made the save but then she took Ember's title and started playing with it before leaving it in the ring; but right after Shayna's push started both acts dissapeared from tv for months, I imagine to not overshadow Shayna who was struggling to get over. The IIconics never appeared again on NXT and Nikki appeared occasionally with Sanity but she didn't had a match until April of 2018 and then Shayna beat her fairly easily at Takeover Chicago II, so Shayna's reign of terror also affected them.

Yup. For all the burying Asuka supposedly did to the division, Shayna did it much quicker and much more brutally.

Especially since she was struggling to get over, and her MMA horsewomen buddies are still so fucking terrible. I remember Dave raving about how advanced they were at first (according to reports he got), but once he actually saw them in person, he talked about it on the podcast with Bryan.

He was like..."uhh...yeah about that...they are green. very green. uhm that's the nicest thing i can say."

The most important thing was that Shayna did it to a division with a lot of great possibilities (Kairi vs. Io most of all which we now won't ever get at a TakeOver where it would be at its best), whereas in Asuka's reign it was extremely bare.

I'm officially become Dark Marky until Cole becomes NXT Champion and starts fucking winning. Which means I may be dark forever.

I'm pretty much dark Buffy with the woman's division on NXT since it's gone to shit. I do hope Cole starts win matches and gets his real shot at being NXT Champion.

You could not live with your own failure. Where did that bring you? Back to me.

Why do you even want him to win the title so badly? The NXT title is a bingo hall title for bums, not to mention, the more successful someone is in NXT, the less successful they are on the main roster. I mean, look at a list of NXT champions. Joe, Nakamura, Zayn, Balor, Bo Dallas, Big E, Neville, etc. You should be praying that Cole never wins the NXT title so that Vince doesn't get his usual petty mindset and try to bury him by "proving Triple H wrong".
