Meltzer noted that the WWE in Japan is going to be a real challenge because like Mexico - the WWE fans in Japan want to see the WWE.

They don't want to see what is basically "your country's wrestling only watered down" (that is me paraphrasing Dave's thought)

So basically they want to see RAW or Smackdown not NXT

What stops WWE from making NXT:Japan more like RAW and Smackdown?

It shouldn’t really, and it shouldn’t stop them from say using Nakamura.

My impression from that was that they wanted to see Raw/Smackdown superstars, not that they wanted to see Raw/Smackdown styled shows.

That said, I doubt they’d have any trouble finding superstars to do a few tours for NXT:Japan.

I’m telling you, just get back to back to back ads of King Cobra Malt Liquor, and Crown Royale. “King Cobra! Don’t let the smooth taste fool you.”

I mean "Crown Royale presents The Crown Jewel , live from Saudi Arabia", does write itself.

What is surprising to me about Fox Smackdown is the sameyness of it all. The deal was announced over a year ago. Plenty of money has been thrown around (Fury, Velazquez, and a rumored Punk) and yet it feels like they put lipstick on a pig. The tired format is the same.

It’s really hard to book a two hour show. You need 3 hours, and an overrun to make sense of it all.

Problem: Your weekly TV shows should not be as long as your major shows/PPVs.

WWE's solution: Make PPVs even longer! Six-hour WrestleManias sound good! Let's go for it! Throw some pre-show on top of our three-hour shows! That should work!

NBC had a lot to do with the improved presentation of the company in the '80s, post-SNME. I take it from this thread that Fox is not exactly NBC in this regard.

Eric is too smart a businessman to go full scorched Earth but an un-recorded live show has some shit talking I bet.

Having Keith Lee on NXT at the same time as Marko Stunt's Dynamite match is probably up there for differences between wrestlers simultaneously on TV.. short of something where the Giant was on Nitro during a Max Mini RAW match.

I kinda wanna see an NXT Japan promotion be done where every person on the roster comes out to the generic Orient Express music waving the Japanese flag, and every match finish is green mist/salt to the eyes, 

its either going to last a few weeks, or be so ironically bad it becomes inanely popular.

Hopefully every gaijin working in NXT Japan is either an American cowboy or a shootfighter so NXT Japan can bring in the fans who miss old style "Baba loves Cowboys" All Japan or the "Inoki fighting dudes in worked shoots" New Japan.

No offense to Peter Gabriel, and his marks. Prior to Phil Collins beautiful vocals, and pulse pounding drums, you could say any name you want, and anybody would believe you. That’s how unmemorable he was as lead singer. If you could call what he was doing back then as “singing”.

Or you have the consensus critical opinion that after he left the band steadily got worse and worse. Personally, I don't care.
