NXT DISCUSSION - DEC 2019

Going to the nxt house show in San Jose next Sunday. Bringing my almost 4 year old to his first wrestling show so I’m super excited. Not sure how he’ll do, it’s really the perfect show to bring him too, I’m not super invested and tickets were $20 so if he wants to leave early that’s fine. But I think he’ll have fun. 

The last show I went there was just before a Takeover and we basically saw a dress rehearsal of what was to come.

For some reason, lots of peeps leave their souvenirs behind when they left so I saw people picking them up for free.

I am curious though if after NXT being put over strong at Survivor Series and being a prime-time USA show, that you would think there would be some sort of stronger NXT presence in the main Wrestlemania show this year besides bodies in the battle Royal. Like maybe Takeover will be main evented by a feud-culminating grudge match while the NXT Championship and/or NXT Womens Championship will be defended on the main show?

I don't think there's really a good candidate for a feud-culminating grudge match, though. The ship has sailed (so to speak) for Gargano/Ciampa. Gargano/Balor and Kai/Knox won't have that kind of heat and those are the biggest two feuds simmering in NXT now. Keith Lee or Rhea Ripley winning a belt there is still the best play, but I don't think you want both on the same show. I think the Ripley chase has more legs since she can feud with Kai to build both women's feuds. Lee should take the belt in a squash next week, then retain in a longer match at TO: Portland. Then he can defend against Ciampa for something fresh at Tampa.

When do the Tampa tickets go on sale? Going to WM for the first time ever with some friends and wanted to see if we could squeeze it in too.

I think Charlotte Tweeted that "Queen" is one. Not sure if that's for individual events or a ticket for the entire week(HOF/NXT/Smackdown/WM/Raw)

Just checked and Charlotte's code is for the entire week. Found the pre-sale code though NXT's Twitter. Thanks for the heads up, guys!

EDIT - I love them hand waving away the name issue by basically claiming WWE and NXT are different

To input a totally random question, why is the double chickenwing face slam used so much by women wrestlers and not by men?

Every indie guy is to busy learning Roll the Dice as their finisher after hitting 1080° corkscrews through steel chair transition spots.

I can only assume it was announced during Cody's match on Dynamite.

The Dusty Classic is confirmed to return next year.

Wonder if NXT UK teams end up participating. NXT itself is a little light on teams. Won't happen, but I hope Breezango make the finals.

My guess is sexism.

By my count, there are eight teams based off the NXT roster on WWE.com:

 Undisputed Era

 1-2

 Forgotten Sons

 3.0

Breezango

Imperium

Riddle/Lee

Outliers
 

Interestingly, half of the Dusty Classic finalists have been makeshift teams (over half if you count O’Reilly/Cole).

I forgot about 3.0 and Outliers. Imperium is more NXT UK. Lee/Riddle aren't official team. Wasn't sure 1-2 was still around even with Oney supposedly signing back up.

If they wanted to up the wattage, they could expand it to include main roster teams.
