Re: WWE NXT Weekly Discussion Thread

*Rush vs. Gulak was a fun match. Gulak is so damn good with his transitions and Rush is a great high flyer. Fun match and cool to see Rush get that moment.

*Rhea Ripley is a star man. She's a freaking star. I love her new submission hold. Great addition to her repertoire. I want her going for the title, but she damn sure better be winning if she is.

*Skipped Breezango vs. The Forgotten Sons and Grimes vs. Boa.

*Strong vs. Scott was really freaking good. Isiah Scott is a future star. He's instantly over. He has swag. He can work. He's great. And these two had a really good match.

Dream's promo afterwards was classic Dream and hilarious and having Ciampa coming out later was great too. The Angel Garza segment in the back with Cathy and Ciampa was funny too.

*OK, I very much enjoyed Dakota vs. Bianca. I love Dakota's new attitude. But you have Dakota lose her 2nd match back? What? I just don't get that. Again, fun match, but I don't agree with that outcome.

*I enjoyed some of the videos they had going on with Lee, Dijak, Priest, and others. Good stuff.

*I only the 2nd half of Kushida vs. Walter but damn it was awesome. Go watch it.

I'm guessing they had Bianca going over Kai so that Rhea can steamroll her en route to facing Shayna for the title at Takeover: Wargames.

Re: WWE NXT Weekly Discussion Thread

Didnt watch yet, but reading results, God this show sounds super geek filled. Like seriously? Are they even trying to compete with AEW or have they conceded?

Re: WWE NXT Weekly Discussion Thread

On Kai.. I know they want to keep Bianca looking strong. There was no reason to have her be Kai's opponent in that match.. There are a bunch of girls Bianca could have beat, there are a bunch of girls Kai could have beat. No reason to put the two of them in the ring together right now..

The only thing I watched was the Main Event. Thought it was a great match. WALTER is awesome.

Re: WWE NXT Weekly Discussion Thread

I think its pretty obvious at this point that NXT doesn't view Dakota as a top tier woman in the division. There are four women who are considered top tier: Shayna Baszler, Io Shirai, Bianca Belair, and Rhea Ripley.

Anyone below that level will probably be jobbing to one of the four women I listed above.

Re: WWE NXT Weekly Discussion Thread

Good opener... the rest, not so much. NXT is just mire in this slump that started this year. It just has not been able to be consistent and so much of their shows are flat as hell. HHH really needs to take a hard look at things because he’d had two mediocre Takeovers and no outstanding show all year now... NXT used to be automatic.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

And that's one of the reasons why their women's division is in the mess it's in. One of the things I missed during the HW-era was seeing the likes of Sasha, Becky & Bayley elevate themselves from jobber fodder to the top-tier. Hell even during Asuka's reign we saw girls like the IIconics, Ruby Riott and Nikki Cross being able to seamlessly move up the card. Nowadays there's just a glass ceiling and it's really limiting what the division can do.

Yes it's worth the replay. Not that it matters but Meltzer gave it 4 1/4 stars.
