[NXT] NOV 2017 DISCUSSION

Recommended Posts

Most likely scenario, Drew retains Saturday and the TakeOver on Rumble weekend is Drew defending against Cole or Cole and Strong in a triple threat, right? 

Where do things go from there? What is Mania weekend? I've got Drew vs Black or Strong vs Black.

They weren't part of the poll (at least I don't remember them being in it.)

There is a segment on the DVD that focuses on the tag teams though

Do it, man. I went to the Takeover here in Toronto a year ago and it was a blast. Some of the most fun I've had a wrestling show, even with that dumb shark cage thing.

Yeah the general rule is that no matter how awful you think the TV buildup is for a Takeover the actual show makes up for it.  The perfect example to me is last year Takeover in Orlando.  I sold my ticket because I thought the show looked really weak compared to the other show running at same time.  Watched it when I came back from the trip and man that was such a good show

The Seth Rollins inclusion (much less top 3) is the glaring issue with the list.  He simply isn't important to the NXT story and is only that high because of his post-NXT run.

Big E should have been #5.

I feel like basically all the women—save Asuka and Bliss—are too low. The revolution rhetoric got tiresome ages ago, but it was pretty paradigm shifting work at the time. Charlotte to Sasha to Bayley is the best stuff the brand has done.

Nak, for all that I love him, feels too high. His best match was his first, and that was achieved by recycling spots from his last two Dome matches, and Zayn firing up. (I still love the match, but seriously, watch him versus Ibushi and Styles. Entire sequences are lifted.) After that he either regressed, lazed about, or a bit of both.

Well again - assuming they took the shoot results - it was a straight popularity contest.

Plus - it was just a "Here is a giant list of people - pick 10" you didn't even get to rank them
