I'm the same.

Did catch this past weeks weekly show though and it was fucking terrible so I probably will keep just tuning in for TakeOvers and enjoy the great PPV they put on.

Problem with NXT is that none of it matters. It's a developmental brand at the end of the day. No one stays down forever and those that do have wasted their time.

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

I'm going with Shayna Blayzer retaining the NXT Woman's Championship and Johnny Gargano. I can only see one title change and that is The Undisputed Era regaining the tag titles.

Iíve always felt the same way. I rarely watch any of the weekly stuff, as it really doesnít matter. The Takeover shows are typically entertaining for what they are, but at the end of the day, what does it mean?

Their character/storylines arenít going to carry over to the main roster. Everything about them is likely to be neutered, and theyíre going to be treated like midcard fodder if not worse. Itís the equivalent of a AAA baseball player hitting .350 and hitting 30 HRs. Like, yeah, it was impressive for what it was, but ultimately it means absolutely nothing once youíre in the bigs.

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

Final prediction time:

*Riddle beats Strong. Can't see Riddle losing 2 Takeover matches in a row. Could be MOTN.

*TUE wins the tag ladder match. Street Profits chase them afterwards.

*Dream beats Breeze. W/ Breeze being full time in NXT now, he could win. But I think they want Dream to hold that belt for awhile.

*Shayna beats Io. They've proven they're limited with their story telling with Shayna and her goons. Shayna on her own is more fun and while I've loved a lot of her matches, things need to change eventually. I just don't think it's tonight.

*Gargano vs. Cole. Everyone thinks it's a forgone conclusion Cole will win. But with Cole and Roddy making up and TUE looking so strong recently, I don't know, I have a hard time picking him even if he should win.

To me, Gargano winning in Brooklyn was the right choice. Cole should win tonight and then beat Gargano in Toronto to end the trilogy. But I can't really pick tonight.

All in all looks like another great Takeover that's flying under the radar because of the location, rescheduling, DON, etc. But it's Takeover, so it will deliver.

the way WWE booking goes, if Baszler came in as a monster heel, the fans would love her. It's just how it goes. WWE fans are the spiteful children who rebel against anything given to them. Maybe not ALL the time, but it sure feels that way. They don't like anything.

NXT as a whole has been in a slump. Losing the War Raiders, Kairi Sane, Ricochet, Aleister Black, Ciampa, etc has really dealt them a blow they're having trouble dealing with.

Add Road Dogg to the goddamn writing crew, and yeah, it's a problem and it's evident on NXT TV. NXT TV was so good because it was a bunch of ECW guys behind the scenes directing traffic, along with Triple H who has a good mind for the biz, NXT was really outdoing the main roster week after week.

The past month and a half have been very lackluster and I often miss out on NXT tapings and events happening here in florida, because I'm just not invested.

Shayna already was a monster Heel then they ruined that by having her babysit her less talented companions.

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

They've clearly run out of ideas for Shayna booking-wise. All of her feuds are the same now, and it's just make the division look bad overall.

Re: NXT TakeOver: XXV Discussion Thread

Gargano should lose and then head to the main roster. He was in the centerpiece feud too long in NXT and it needs some fresh air there. He was going to be called up along with Richochet, Black and Ciampa before the Ciampa injury.

Shayna needs to go away. No way she should retain tonight. Io is the last chance to have somebody ready for a title run. If Baszler beats here - who else is ready?

Riddle wins. I think we see Riddle vs Cole for the title at SS Takeover. ReDragon wins tag titles just to further re-push TUE as the alpha faction.

Dream should retain and make a big deal about he was the only champion to retain. Match will be lackluster though - Breeze isn't that good. Even in his NXT days he was more gimmick than in-ring, and he's only gotten worse since his call-up. If he's back full time, I'd like to see him repackaged.
