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.
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.
