Io is much more than popular any other woman on the NXT roster apparently. You can see it reflected on social media/YouTube as well. I think Rhea might be popular with the Full Sail audience, but the viewers at home/online seem significantly more interested in whatever Io is doing.
To be honest Rhea is also very populer on social media and Youtube. I looked at the viewers for example when she confort Shayna 2 months ago it has 464K views.
Rhea and Io matches have moreviews from other nxt videos they put, more then the man's.

Io's stuff tends to draw more viewers though, which is the thing. Also Rhea's last few matches have actually lost a decent chunk of viewers. Which puts WWE in a tough spot. They are setting up an Io/Rhea collision at some point, but who actually goes over? I can see they want to push Rhea, but she's not super great for ratings, and for those who don't remember, her NXT UK Women's Title reign was god fucking awful. Io has already faced Shayna though, and should not be eating a loss either.

I tuned out during Garza/Ciampa cause I didn't want to see Garza get squashed by the Sicilian snoozefest.

Skipped Brit-Am Bruisers/Imperium

Skipped Riddle/Reed

Skipped Dunne/Priest

Lee/Dijakovic never got out of first gear.

Shirai/Carter should've been much longer

Tuned out during Nox/Conti

How are they going to write Dream out with an injury, he's the only person with charisma that they use properly.

Only thing that I have to look forward to is Rhea vs Io and Bianca, I would be interested in Strong vs Lee but Dijakovic instantly kills my interest, and things are only going to get worse with Finn Balor coming back. Ugh. AEW only has 6 people that I like but at least they actually use those 6 people, NXT has stars sitting on the bench so they can push roleplayers.
Lol don’t think NXT is a match for you.

NXT was once my favorite product, it got me back into wrestling in 2013 after an 11 year hiatus. I fucking loved developmental NXT, I hate the indy NXT. I hate how low of a priority charisma, promos and characters are for HHH, I hate how he pushes so many people without futures on the main roster.

Why hasn't Keith Lee had a TO match yet? Why is Garza getting squashed instead of challenging for the NAC? Why has Swerve had fewer tv matches than bums like Grimes and Reed? Where the fuck is Dexter Lumis? Why didn't they put Io over Shayna?

It's clear NXT isn't for me because I'm not over 50, their target audience, but they keep just enough people around that I like that I'm forced to check out the show, even if I do get through it in only 20 minutes.

WWE NXT preview, Oct. 23, 2019



Roderick Strong to defend NXT North American Title against Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic

However, his meddling has seemingly backfired, as Strong will be forced to defend his NXT North American Championship against both men in a Triple Threat Match.

Originally, The Velveteen Dream was scheduled to get a championship rematch against Strong. However, Strong and his Undisputed ERA cohorts brutally attacked His Purple Highness before the Oct. 16 edition of NXT, where they unveiled their heinous actions.

NXT General Manager William Regal revealed that Dream would not be able to compete next week or for quite some time. Instead, Strong’s next challenger would be the winner of the rubber match between Lee and Dijakovic. During an epic battle between the two monsters, the NXT North American Champion attacked both Superstars, but Regal would not stand for Strong’s insolence, making this huge Triple Threat Match.

Can Strong survive a battle with two of NXT’s biggest competitors, or will a new NXT North American Champion be crowned?


Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley clash as NXT Women’s division heats up

Quote:
As the race to become the next challenger to NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler heats up, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley will battle this Wednesday, with both women looking to move up the ladder.

Last week on NXT, the two women threw their hats in the ring for a future title opportunity, with Belair taking offense at Rhea’s claim to a title opportunity, and Ripley is ready to demolish anyone standing between her and Baszler.

Who will move one step closer to an NXT Women’s Title opportunity?


How is Finn Bálor’s past his future?

Quote:
Since his surprise return to NXT, Finn Bálor has been a man of few words. And when he has spoken, The Extraordinary Man has left the NXT Universe asking more questions — like he did last Wednesday, when he said, “Next week, my future will be my past.”

Just what did Finn Bálor mean by that?


Can Pete Dunne deal with both Damian Priest and Killian Dain?

Quote:
Last week on NXT, Pete Dunne was out for payback on Damian Priest, but found himself on the losing end of the battle after The Archer of Infamy hit The BruiserWeight with a low blow. After the match, Dunne made it clear that Priest has his attention.

However, Priest is not the only Superstar Dunne has to worry about. Before his main-event showdown with Priest, Dunne locked eyes with Killian Dain, who had just demolished Boa. After some jaw jacking between the two, Dain seemingly made the error of pointing a finger at Dunne, as The BruiserWeight snapped his digits in a split second. The Beast of Belfast had to be restrained from going after Dunne during the ensuing commercial break.

How will Pete Dunne handle his search for retribution on Priest, along with his newfound enmity with Dain? Find out on WWE NXT, live this Wednesday at 8/7 C on USA Network!

You do Realize that Keith Lee, Garza, Swerve, Lumis, and Io are also all Indy Interchangeable Midgets?

Heck even your Avatar Shasha is an Indie Midget, i figure you should admire someone like Lacey Evans or Vanessa Bourne just for the reason they are pure homegrown.

Re: WWE NXT Discussion Thread

Priest looks like a mixture of a vampire and some hellish thing, yet his character someone that likes ladies and night clubs... complete miss match. His character is such a massive miss, but he is incredibly talented. He would just have been 10000 times more captivating and interesting if he was much more of a dark mystery like his look, entrance and pretty much everything in his presentation aside from the bullshit night club stuff alludes to

I think a modern vampire would fit into the nightlife at the club. Living in excess. Vampires thrive at night and at the clubs there are plenty of women and victims for the taking.

Fair enough, but they seem to be focusing more on him being more of an edgy playboy tbh than the darker side and well it's not working for me. Also him having to punt Pete in the nuts to win, kinda emphasizes he is not really a dark character, he shouldn't need to resort to stuff like that, while a cocky playboy surely would if he felt he was in danger of maybe losing

Re: WWE NXT Discussion Thread

The Triple Threat tonight between Lee vs. Dijak vs. Roddy could great tonight. Unless AEW has Mox on or something, my full attention will be on that. And while I know Lee's not winning this, isn't gonna stop me from marking out during a big near fall.

I don't know how Rhea and Bianca will mesh together, but I'm definitely interested in seeing 2 big bulls of the women's division collide.
