Well, it looks the women's title picture/division on NXT will continue to be the most boring part of the show for the next 2.5 months :trips8

It was enough to justify another title match. Shayna is throwing a fit about it on twitter, and WWE is outright saying the war between these two is far from over. I imagine Shayna will probably defend the title against Mia in the meantime, but it'll likely be a filler title defense since they have 8 weeks of TV time to fill before Toronto.
Every babyface doesn't have to be clean cut. They are allowed to flip out and attack their opponent in my eyes even if it makes them look like a sore loser. I'm tired of this traditional box that WWE places all of their heels and babyfaces in. Its okay to change it up 10-20% of the time. So Io winning the title in Toronto due to a meaner character change is fine by me if that's the route they are going. It adds another layer to her character. I'm tired of the happy go lucky shit from WWE baby faces anyway. People are going to cheer regardless so fuck it. If not, then its shit booking to have Shayna win tonight.

Here is the post match assault by the way. The clip didn't capture the actual aftermath though, which is unfortunate.


The crowd chanted for tables after the chairsault, chanted ONE MORE TIME, and also chanted YOU DESERVE IT at Shayna after she was laying on the ground in pain. I think their intent may be to turn Io into the NXT version of Becky Lynch with that post match assault.

That was awesome. Thanks for posting as I didn't watch the show tonight. There will definitely be a rematch and Io will be more ferocious the 2nd time around, which is fine by me.

This is honestly hilarious.

Everyone thesedays endlessly bitches and cries and moans about heels never winning clean. Then when a heel wins clean because said heel isn't some Indy spot monkey everyone bitches, moans and cries about that.

And for everyone saying Shayna is killing the division or burying everyone, this is the exact same thing Asuka did and everyone adored her reign.

The hypocrisy from wrestling fans is always astounding.
The two major differences are that Asuka was a lot more popular than Shayna and the NXT women's division was a lot thinner when she was champ.

The popularity thing just exposes the hypocrisy though. If something is only bad when someone you dont like is doing it then you're being a hypocrite about it.

The division is still pretty thin now, they haven't built up many other women.

The story isn't over yet. I'm just glad we have a woman with convincing technical offense. Like Asuka. Too many of the women not named bazzler and Asuka tend to go for the showy spots they have no business doing. These two just go out and wrestle to their styles. I'm all in for a future bazzler Asuka match

It's not hypocrisy, it's a fact that Asuka was a bigger draw than Shayna. It made sense for her to be champ.

Hunter is an MMA/boxing mark. He supported the Ronda title reign last year so of course, he'll try and mold Shayna as he Brock to be unstoppable even though Brock has the pedigree, history, and legacy to back up that claim.

Hunter may be better than Vince but he's just at fault for booking trite shit as Vince is but gets a pass because of MUH TAKEOVER. Io, of course, should have won here and cleanly too but of course.

No its Triple H's fault, cause he doesn't care about anyone in the division except Shayna.

How long was Candice sitting around doing nothing? For the longest time she was just Gargano's wife, only now is she kinda picking up some wins, had she been getting a push a few months ago she'd be in a better position and credible enough to take the title.

Same with Mia Yim, shes been signed a long while now and again is only now just getting some kind of push.

Triple H has just left alot of these women behind and not put any time into building them up to be credible challengers for Shayna.
I'd understand your frustration if Shayna wasn't great. I get worked by her every episode, hating her guts. But, she's a dominant MMA fighter. A clean win makes sense. Also, this was not a clean win. Her buddies interfered and distracted Io.

I'd argue two things:

1) she needs to stop using her pals if she's going to win clean.

2) she needs a different finisher. Everyone has seen the choke and for the whole roster to not have it scouted........in that perspective I think she's overpowered.

Lastly, I'm willing to bet that HHH thought the tag team champs would come to NXT to feud with Shayna's goons, but Vince's booking is so bad they never came. Had they come, they wouldn't be in shayna's corner and she may have dropped the title by now.

I like Shayna and think she plays her role well. But she's supposed to be the bad guy for the good guy to overcome.... and that should have been Kairi, or Io, or some good guy character who is set to be the next big thing.... and they don't have anybody left for that role if it isn't Io.

Mos of the show was really good, but THIS was the worse part of it (much like the last Takeover it would seem).

They made Io look so fucking pathetic here:

-She costs Kairi her shot at ever being able to challenge for the NXT Women's title ever again, and then has to watch as Shayna and co beat the shit out of Kairi and run her out of NXT.

-She vows to avenge Kairi, and we get badass kendo stick wielding leather jacket wearing Io.

-She has tons of momentum.

And, she just loses, via tap out no less. When people say that Triple H's obsession with Shayna and co is hurting the division as a whole, this is the kind of stuff that they're talking about. Io fails to avenge her friend, fails to get redemption, and just looks like an

Shayna is just trash in general. Can't talk, her body expressions come off like a CAW a 12 year old would come up with and her matches are only good as long as her opponent does all the selling. The second she has to bump and feed her inexperience shows.

There is legit no one else in the division other than Io that deserves to take that title, not Mia, not Candice, they aren't anywhere near ready or good enough right now.

And if they plan on Io taking the title at a later date its fucking dumb they had Shayan beat her clean, that makes no sense at all. Io has no claim to get another shot now, she lost fair and square. Shayna even had her backup taken out and Io still lost, so they told us Io isn't good enough to beat Shayna even when Shayna has no help.

I'm convinced Triple H has no plan at all for whos gonna take the title off Shayna, he's just made up his mind Shayna is gonna beat everyone she faces and surpass Asuka's streak. Next she'll likely beat Mia Yim on an episode of NXT, and then go on and defeat Candice maybe at a Takeover. Then she'll likely just go around and defeat everyone shes already beaten again.

This division is fucking dead man, Shayna has beaten everyone in it and the entire division looks like chumps in comparison to Shayna.
That's because Shayna is the most badass female wrestler in NXT. Say what you want, there is no one who can win clean against her and make it come off as legit. She's the Brock Lesnar of the womens' division in NXT.

What a bald-faced lie. I remember Asuka's reign, being a giant weeb loser I fucking loved it, but every week all you had to listen to was:

"Asuka's reign is killing the women's division. There are no challengers left. She's the Brock Lesnar of the women's division. Can't wait until someone beats her, that'll improve the division instantly."

Jokes on you people, now you miss Asuka and her reign. What happened to that instantly improved division once Asuka gave up the belt :asuka

People comparing Io going nuts here to Shayna attacking Ember after losing their first match, there's one HUGE difference. And that is that Shayna was protected in her loss from Ember, it was a fluky pin. Io tapped clean like a bitch here. I don't know about you, but one was much better then the other (hint not the second one).

Also Io looked like such an idiot just standing there cheering Candice and ignoring Shayna. They have babyface do this a lot and they look dumb every single time, especially against someone like Shayna, who's snuck up on her opponents before.

Also they made her look like a complete idiot, Shayna's goons come out to interfere but Candice comes out and takes them out. What does Io do during this? does she capitalize on a downed Shayna? no she stands there cheering on Candice as she beats up Shayna's goons, literally stands there watching the whole brawl, while Shayna is getting up and recovering.

^I mentioned that in my second post actually, but yes you're right. They do this with babyfaces all the time (remember Asuka losing to Carmella repeatedly because she inexplicably was obsessed with James Ellsworth for ages, even after nearly getting pinned, so that Carmella could hit her from behind), and it makes them look like morons every single time.
