NXT - AUGUST 2019

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Ricky Shane Page popping up on a WWE video is pretty random.

Given all the talent currently in NXT -- if they move to a live show every week on FS1, just take the bigger names on the road and leave the other developing talent working the Florida circuit as they are doing now and just keep taping a lower level NXT show with the undeveloped talent and just have those guys move up to the bigger NXT whenever the other folks move up to the main roster.

That way you keep folks continuously developing and at least you are still providing weekly content for the Network.

I was watching some stuff from last year. Is it weird that Almas’s run as champion is my favorite in the history of the show? Great matches, looked like a star, Vegas was money. Way too short a run.

And I say weird because while he was my favorite title holder, and while I feel like the Gargano match was a legitimate five star classic, I feel like it was that exact match that was kind of the downfall for the whole main event scene. Like they’ve been trying to get to that level again but it’s just pure masturbatory nonsense. Compare any of Gargano’s main event matches with Almas/Black, which while having some of the go-go-go no-selling stuff at the end was still extremely good and coherent.

Almas held that stuff together in a way that Gargano (and Ciampa and Cole) just can’t I think. Its time to move on from this style and have Keith Lee squash Cole for the belt or something. 

But yeah champion Almas was fantastic .

So, without NXT, what exactly does the network offer?

Fair question, but if all you watch is NXT, Hulu has that and 205Live and 90 minute, next day Raw and Smackdowns and is cheaper.

I just need to procure some DVDs of WCW shows so I can revisit my childhood memories from time to time.

You can watch NXT (including Takeovers) on Hulu. So really, you don’t need the Network at all. 

 

Oops! Johnny Law beat me to it.

A 90 minute show would be the sweet spot between not enough time and overexposure, but obviously it's not a possible option.

I've always thought someone should do a 90 minute live show with a 30 minute studio show lead-in. Take some of the longer form web content they create, do sit down interviews, recap the week, hype up the show. Basically a better version of the PPV pre-shows, with the filler that makes the two hour shows drag pulled out and put in a better context.

They signed a bunch of Chile tryouts and no Alejandro Saez?

They didn't already have a "half ass the match and throw a tantrum backstage when you job" coach?

Santana started her training and career in my area and I knew her dad(RIP). Super cool to see her get this opportunity.

El Hijo Del Fantasma may be in that class as well.

He is- for some reason they never announced him with the others. He speaks perfect English so there's no language barrier for him... in a perfect world he gets over huge.

Oh, how I want Stoke's character to be a manager for wrestlers who didn't realize they'd signed up for it:

As mentioned - this is your reminder that a TV taping is tonight so usual spoiler warnings abound

Fucking Dragon Soldier B as a trainer will never not be weird.
