NXT RETRO WORKRATE REPORT – January 23, 2013 (by PHIL RIPPA) I haven’t done one of these in a little bit. I realized I need to get cracking if I want to finish 2013 before 2016. Please don’t make me regret picking you over Mass Effect. WHAT WORKED Alex Riley shows up and looks exactly – EXACTLY – like Stevie Richards. That is making me laugh way more than it should.

I do like that I am watching this today since th
NXT RETRO WORKRATE REPORT – January 2, 2013 (by PHIL RIPPA) Because I have soooo much free time, I decided to start working through the NXT Shows on Hulu. For someone who has longed for the days of Saturday Night or Worldwide for that matter, this is the closest I am going to get. Of course, doing them retroactively will mean that I have to space out my jokes. Do I mock Tony Dawson now or what a little bit? Decisions. Decisions. Anyway, I decided to start with the beginning of 2013 because I wasn’t going back to the beginning of this show. I ain’t THAT crazy. I did watch the 2012 recap sh
