Re: NXT Takeover XXV June 1st Location Announced

Io needs to go over way more than Cole does. That division is in shambles.

Honestly I said it before, but I think Cole and Undisputed's time has passed. They're needed way more on SD. I'm just not sold on them holding all the gold anymore.

They should just put the NXT title on Dream this year.

Yeah no, not even close. "Time has passed" would have to have some showing of the fans not caring. Cole is white hot as a heel right now, it feels like his time more than anyone's right now. Not putting the title on him within this or the next takeover would be one of the all time biggest mistakes in NXT history.

Hoping they put the title on him at this TakeOver. Could see alll of TUE holding gold heading into War Games in November - with all the gold on the line at that show.

I love the idea of the entire UE wearing gold at war games, and then defending all the title at once. I don’t think Roderick Strong is going to be the fourth guy though. I feel like he gonna be “the weak link” and they gonna replace him with another up and comer. I don’t know who though, is there anybody at the pc or signed recently you feel could be a fourth?? Then Roderick would be the captain of the team going against UE at war games and he needs to create a team.

If Io is going over and Gargano is retaining, maybe you do consider putting the women on last, I think it makes it a bit too obvious who the winners will be though.

Not necessarily. Having Gargano retain could build some tension as to who wins the Women's match. Also they've had Shayna retain in situations where most expected her not to (including at the last Takeover), so there's be at least some doubt I think.

Re: NXT Takeover XXV June 1st Location Announced

I think the issue with Shayna at this point though is that people are starting to turn on her, and not in the good heel way, more like the fact that her reign has grown incredibly stale and she hasn't grown as a character at all. Not to mention that Jessamyn and Marina are completely hopeless at this point, and there's no point to them being kept around if Sasha isn't coming back.

Candice is too damaged to hold the title, and she has literally no personality either.

Re: NXT Takeover XXV June 1st Location Announced

If Io loses, the women's division is destroyed beyond any rebuilding. It's a permanent dark age. The situation is that dire. I don't like her chances right now though. Io has already pinned Shayna and the June TakeOver is filler. The most I'm hoping for is that Io at least is protected so she can get her ultimate triumph later, but right now, I'm skeptical she'll win.

It's not that I'm disputing Cole's popularity, it's more that I don't think there's much for NXT to gain anymore with a Cole title reign. It'll be fine, but not much different from what we've seen from Undisputed since they arrived. It would basically just be a retread of last year, with some new features added but essentially the same.

The likely course is that Cole and Undisputed will run wild for a while and then be stopped by Matt Riddle.

Whereas putting it on Dream or even Riddle would bring something new to the table. Dream is just unique no matter what he does. Riddle could have some hard hitting fights with guys like Dijak or Keith Lee.

Cole? What would be different? Maybe his run with TUE would force some truly weird alliances on the babyface side throughout NXT. That would work, but somehow, I just don't think that happens.

Re: NXT Takeover XXV June 1st Location Announced

I think the thing that I question though is that with the KSA show being a week later, they may want a babyface to come out on top for the women on the NXT XXV show. And WWE is putting a lot of stock into her right now. And you are starting to see articles pop up online now about how Shayna's reign has gotten stale.

I should mention Io losing would do more than damage the women's division. It would severely damage Io as well, because she would fail to get revenge for Kairi, and at that point I would be questioning why WWE/NXT would be keeping her down there instead of having her go up with Kairi and tag with her instead of Asuka.

Especially since Io is the best worker they have down there right now in the ring. She should be the focal point of the division now instead of Shayna ~lets talk about reality~ Baszler. Whose matches are all pretty much identical now.
