Why is Aliyah so neglected?

Slowly became my favorite NXT star. I love her pairing with Vanessa Bourne but Vanessa is portrayed as the star (you can tell because they put her on camera more).

Aliyah has always been a supportive villian or enhancement talent for years with little character development. She has a great look and has come along nicely in the ring. Anyone know why she's stuck in this role?

Re: Why is Aliyah so neglected?

She sucks, she has improoved a little bit on the ring from her first days on NXT, but that's about it. In fact she should have improoved more given that she has been there for 4 years. And now with Borne they are trying something similar to the IIconics, but neither of them has the charisma to make it work. And this is just me, but look wise she doesn't stand out in any way

Re: Why is Aliyah so neglected?

I noticed when I first saw her on Breaking Ground that she really struggled. Granted she was brand new but even then, she was behind the curve. At one point,they were even considering releasing her. But she pulled through because they could see she was really trying.

Ironic that back then Regal was advising her not to do a Kim Kardashian gimmick,yet here she is 4 years later doing it. She looks better than Kim and her fuckin fake ass body too.

Anyway,I'm thinking this tag team with Vanessa is sort of another chance to succeed. I've said it before,if management likes you(Hunter in this case),then you will get multiple chances. If they don't,your ass is gone.

I like her and Vanessa a lot and I hope they do well.

Re: Why is Aliyah so neglected?

If anyone is underrated it is Candice Lerae. Pls guys understand this I believe she is underrated in every way. My opinion is her booking is atrocious, I think we all agree Candice should be at least on a takeover match.

To me, she does have a look that stands out. I love her attires, her long ponytail look (looks like princess Jasmine) and she has a Mediterranean asthetic.

I don't understand how she "sucks" any worse than Liv, Sarah, Dana or any other premature NXT call ups.

Re: Why is Aliyah so neglected?

I don't see her neglected at all.

She has less than 3 years Wrestling training and is in a tag team on NXT almost weekly, in one way or another. I don't think nxt is setting up Borne to be the star; camera lasting on her isn't a definite sign of that. I think she progressed at a fine pace and is doing quite well, not forgotten by any means.

What else should she be doing besides main eventing for the woman's title?

Re: Why is Aliyah so neglected?

The NXT women wrestlers kind of fall into two camps. Those who work more like the men and focused more on the wrestling/athleticism aspect (Charlotte, Becky, Sasha, Asuka, Ember, Bianca, Shayna, Deonna....) and those who with a more diva-ish act (Aliyah, Vanessa....)

The first camp have been very much NXT's focus.

there are/were some that are somewhere in between. Lacey, Candice, Bayley....


Edit: Mandy Rose is an exception. The sheer force of her massive tits was the crucial factor there

Re: Why is Aliyah so neglected?

She's green as grass. Very little experience, very little exposure. She could benefit from being on NXT tv for at least a year or 2 to really try to grow into her own as a wrestler. It's very soon for her.

Re: Why is Aliyah so neglected?

I'm liking the pairing with Borne. I like her look, very Jinny-like but way more attractive.

Re: Why is Aliyah so neglected?

She isn't very good. To get an idea, Aliyah started in NXT when Sasha and Becky were still there.
