[NXT] DECEMBER 2018 NXT/NXT UK DISCUSSION

Recommended Posts

Word is Wrestlemania Takeover is moving back to Friday, so there won't be any conflict between them and the ROH/NJPW MSG show.  I'm sure there's going to be a lot of indie shows booked on Friday that won't be happy with that news.

Yeah as someone who bought tickets to Janela Spring Break already this decision really sucks.  I was always planning on going to Takeover over the Ring of Honor show even if I could have gotten tickets.   Since I already paid for those pricey tickets to begin with not much choice now

Possible spoilers for NXT UK Takeover and someone who may or may not appear in the crowd as a new signee or something. Or it could be a coincidence.

 

Spoiler

Ilja Dragunov has been pulled from a Pro Wrestling Chaos show that happens on the same day as NXT UK Takeover.

Is Tynara taller than Mendoza?

Mendoza is billed as 5'7"

Conti is billed as 5'5"

So I am thinking its just perspective

Well if nothing else the NXT UK contracts led to some fun shit talk between Trent Seven and Zack Gibson at Progress Chapter 78 as a prelude to their 5 second classic that brought the house down.

F4W is reporting Jonah Rock is another signee for next month.

So they've signed WALTER, ACH, Shane Strickland, Trevor Lee and Jonah Rock. Anyone else?

😮

Ilja Dragunov is rumoured. He dropped a booking the same day as the NXTUK Takeover. Also some TNA guy I can't remember ever hearing of; Sam Shaw or something like that?

Samuel Shaw. His gimmick was along the lines of Patrick Bateman from American Psycho. He was involved in an angle in which he was stalking Christy Hemme.

Alright, sign Ricky Marvin and throw him in with the January signings and you'll have one of the most stacked rosters ever.

Angel Fashion and Vanilla Vargas from Puerto Rico were also there. I believe Angel relocated to Central Florida and has been working for the indy circuit and Vanilla is working for AAA and the US indy circuit.

Wouldn't be surprised at all, if it's Aussie Open.

I don't buy this hairbrained explanation for why Kyle Fletcher was pulled out of the Frontline Wrestling J-1 tournament:

Angel Fashion and Vanilla Vargas are regulars for us in Cleveland Knights Championship Wrestling. Angel holds the tag team title with Mike Mendoza, and Vanilla is the only women's champion we've ever had.

From the new WON

Quote

Shane Strickland’s situation is still up in the air regarding WWE. The basic update is Strickland is almost surely winding up in WWE, but not right now. His MLW contract that he negotiated did give him an out clause to go to WWE. However, he still has his Lucha Underground contract that doesn’t allow it at this time, so he’ll be like Ricochet was, basically waiting out his contract time and then probably start up after that

If they did sign Ricky Marvin would he be the most experienced wrestler to appear on a NXT/FCW "class"?

Yes though I have a feeling his signing would more be to the "coach" of Latin America so I don't think he would be in a "class"

I can't remember the last time I thought about Ricky Marvin, I think it was when he was teaming with Juventud having matches with Kenta and Marufuji.  I loved those matches, I'd like to see what he has left in the tank.

If you are curious? Then here is a recent match with him schooling NJPW/CMLL's Kawato...
