Not enough of you soulless cunts care about it yet (until me, Butch and the other members of NXTeam get through to you), so I'm starting this thread rather than clogging up the "Comments" one. I don't want to dig up an old NXT thread, because frankly, the alternate world of NXT now is so far gone from anything ever, it can't even be related to previous seasons. Also, because we're dead hard in here, you can spoil as much about NXT as you fucking like. This week was stacked and jacked as usual. - As the big payoff to the Matt Striker angle, he has handed the reigns of power over to William Regal for good. Regal has promised some right proper competition for Hawkins and Reks next week. - Tyson Kidd turned face a while back because he fancied it, and in doing so, started looking ace and getting over. He's been going through all sorts of highspots into the Sharpshooter, looking well cool. This week, he fell to the age of McGillicuty in 6 minutes. Mike Perfect's another one who appeared to be a face because he's a face, but he might he a heel still. He's not made his mind up though. - D-Young and Titus added more steam to push to be the greatest choc-cock team of all time, well besting A-Ry and Percy Watson. - Most importantly, the good guys held an in-ring intervention for Bateman to get his nob out of Maxine, but this all lead to the first kiss between Kaitlyn and Bateman, and a subsequent kickoff and match between the two best birds in the entire company. The awesome Johnny Curtis oiled himself up during this time. All that shite in one hour. No boring spots. A way, way better hit-rate than Raw and Smackdown, when you look at it like that. Less wristlocks than Superstars, more corny angles than you can shake a shitty stick at. Get on it you fools. They might start trying to make it good again soon, so make the best of it whilst it's still a giant piss take.

Has Goldberg showed up yet? Thats the BIG rumour I've heard. Goldberg and Takeshi Morishima were in late negotiations on Sunday night.

I've watched every single episode of NXT. All 5 seasons. I don't know whether to be ashamed or proud. Redemption started to get really fucking shit when it was just Bateman, Titus and Young trading wins week after week, but the past few months - since the whole Bateman-Maxine thing started - it's been great. Tyson Kidd is ace on there too. Curtis is one of the best heels in the company at the moment. The only negative is that Titus is still fucking there. Piss off you cunt.

I've been watching NXT for a while now, at least 3 monthsand I think it's quality. Getting rid of Michael Cole and putting Regal on commentary was a smart move (for all brands) and there talent has been good. I even like Tyler Reks who I used to despair watching. The only thing I didn't like was several times we saw Matt Striker's locker room and he was always playing the guitar. Why? Can't he be arsed to watch?

Man up, or get out the NXT thread. Like the show itself, this thread exists in universe by itself too. If you read about Goldberg's debut before it airs over here, you'd bloody better spoil it.

I want to do so many nasty things to Maxine. She's by far the hottest on the roster because she's evil. I mean I like Kaitlyn and I have since she turned up ages ago, but she's not nearly as slutty in my head. It's so good, they should dedicate the first hour of Wrestlemania to NXT.

I honestly want D-Young & Titus to get inserted into a multi-man Tag Title match to the deafening bewildered indifference of 80,000 people. Speaking of the Main Event of Wrestlemania, Bateman prepped for this week's show the same way the stars do:

I wish they would move Regal to Smackdown, so that he could replace Booker T on commentary. An announce team of Matthews & Regal on Smackdown would be a million times better than the current situation. Regal is wasted on the inconsquential NXT. It's great for us in the U.K. - we get the show on actual tv, and we can still enjoy it. But for those in the U.S., they don't get it on tv and thus couldn't give a crap about it and have zero knowledge of it. Hardly anyone watches it on WWE.com. The Youtube views for the NXT show on the official WWE channel are barely in 4 figures, which is embarrassing for a company with between 2m to 4.5m weekly tv viewers. The old saying about a tree falling in the woods with no-one around to witness it springs to mind.

I love NXT. I'm glad somebody else noticed just how good Johnny Curtis is as a heel. Pulls off the creep so well. The only problem is the awesomeness of Curt Hawkins is saddled with the waste of space that is Tyler Reks.

NXT is great, I've said so for ages. Bateman and Curtis are the obvious standout stars at the moment, while Kaitlyn and Maxine are both better characters than any of the Divas on Raw or SmackDown. The thing I love the most about the series though, is that it's been going on for a fucking whole year now and the prize for winning it was supposed to be an opportunity to be a contestant on the NEXT SERIES OF NXT!! Obviously that concept went out of the window ages ago, but nothing was ever said about that. Titus is still utter wank, mind. There was an amazing moment recently when he turned heel during an episode that Michael Cole happened to be making a surprise return to commentary on. Cole rinsed him for his promo skills, literally laughing at him as he stammered his way through his lines.

NXT is fabulous, and it's all down to William Regal. I can never overstate just how good Regal is on NXT. His commentary is something that you barely see on wrestling announcers, he's genuinely funny. His self-deprecation and general sniping comments is A-grade. Trent Baretta, Yoshi Tatsu and Tyson Kidd are the best wrestlers on TV too. NXT is the new Superstars, and I love it.

You can't dust for faeces.

I love Titus, mainly because of his association with D-Young. Their feud was impossibly terrible, week after week after week. Then after the complete shitfest blow off, his heel turn promo was probably the most awful thing I've ever seen. As Arch said, getting to watch that to the soundtrack of Michael Cole absolutely pissing himself raised more smiles from me than just about anything the WWE could try and book. That whole episode was full of it actually, they really blew the lid off everything in NXT 100. He's great now though, because him and Young are friends for no reason and starting to unconvincingly kick some arse. Young's an odd case all by himself too, because he furiously insists that NXT is "his show" and promotes the fact he main evented Summerslam once. He's happily trapped in the bermuda triangle of wrestling and yet still bringing fury that other people dare to find work there. The whole thing's ludicrous. I LOVE it.

I love Regal, but his style of commentary only works for me because it's a D-show and he can get away with not taking it seriously, talking bollocks, dropping silly references and generally pissing around with Josh Matthews. I don't think he'd work on SmackDown.

I've said it time and time again, but NXT S3 was the best thing WWE was putting out at that point. Seriously. Been skimming through NXT in recent weeks because Kaitlyn is awesome, but I enjoy Hawkins and Kidd on there too, as well as Regal on commentary. The wedding segment was terrific stuff.
