NXT DISCUSSION - SEPT 2019

Recommended Posts

Not sure if we are going to keep doing separate threads for NXT much longer

It will all be depended on how going live weekly will chance things

If it basically becomes Main Event Jr then fuck off

To put a bow on the Enzo and Cass thing

So... yeah... as long as H is in charge, I think we will be spared Enzo (at least in NXT)

Thank you NXT Papa H.

In that same interview - Triple H claims Vince will have no say over NXT and shits on reporters saying that Vince would be involved.

So yeah - that is comical

I feel like this would have been more likely had NXT gone to Fox. On USA Vince getting involved on some level feels just a little inevitable. I'm sure HHH will try to fight things a bit, but he would still have to fold in the end like he did with Bryan years ago.

I still wouldn't be surprised to see Cass on the 10/2 show.

I hope they bring back some of the failed call-ups.

Seriously, I want Bo back!

see, that would actually be fun. Delusional heel Bo Dallas was fun as all hell, and him being dragged out of the arena by security is one of my personal favorite NXT moments.

Surprising since she was coming along pretty well, but there's a backlog of talented women in NXT not being used already.

He said it was due to some fucked up discs, and due to their no release policy right now, the only way she could actually get out of her contract was to straight up quit.

She had a couple of cryptic social media posts recently that made me wonder if she was done

Especially because I hadn’t seen her name in results in awhile

I was concerned she might be too small, especially with how injury prone Alexa has been.

Injuries in the women's ranks is a problem that needs to be addressed sooner than later. Teagan Knox, Nia Jax, Tamina Snuka, Ruby Riott, Mickey James, Dakota Kai, Rachel Ellering, Karen Q, Kavita Devi and even Ronda Rousey are all currently on the shelf, most of them with knee injuries/ACL tears. Rhea Ripley just came back, Jazzy Gabert and Io Shirai both have recurrent neck problems that led to their signings being pushed back years, and Alexa Bliss is in the concussion snakebit danger zone. Sasha Banks hasn't even been around to blame the injuries on. The Kylie Rae thing just happened too. I know it's cynical and against the current women's wrestling movement but the writing is absolutely on the wall.

Of course, you are liable to get labeled as a misogynist or Luddite if you point out the likelihood of injuries taking a bump on a 100-120 lb frame with little fat vs the 225-250+ frame with more padding taking the same bump.

That is a shame about Kacy. She showed a decent amount of potential whenever she popped up on tv.

I don't think size is that much of an issue,  a lot of these performers got called up way too quick.  People like Lacey Evans and I might get labeled as a Lacey hater but she needed another year in NXT. Injuries can happen to anyone but the greener they are...

Agreed. They can mitigate damage to their bodies by working smart but inexperience will undercut you every time, either theirs or their opponents.

A little surprised they didn't try and move Kacy over to interviewer. Good personality, and she's so short she would make the workers look bigger in comparison.

I have similar thoughts with regards to the 150-200 lb wrestlers to be quite honest, especially with the bumps they take. A lot of the guys on the Brit scene do not last.

While I dont disagree with that, I don't think that's the case with the current injured list. Almost all of those women have a long wrestling background- Nox, Riott, Q, Ellering, Shirai and Gabert pre-WWE, Mickie and Tamina both being 10+ year WWE veterans. Feels like those would all be in part due to accumulating wear and tear along the way. If anything, health is more likely to be with your likes of Lacey Evans or Dana Brooke, with less miles on the clock and who haven't taken some of the bigger bumps women will take on the indies (I was at one of Nox's last indie matches vs Chris Brookes where she took tack bumps, dived off a doorway and took a few hardcore shots, i remember hoping she wouldn't get injured just before going to the WWE)
