Lol, let the dude say moveset, man. I don't do it either, but there are people who grew up with more exposure to the video games(see: CAWs) than the TV-shows and PPV's. They might sound like Jaden Smth from time to time, but I'm sure they mean well.

I thought my swooning over Garza might have given it away- but trust me, I’m no dude! 

I’ve not played a computer game for at least 20 years, so dunno where I would have picked up such an offensive term - on here, I suspect..

You have no excuse and are¬†just a terrible person¬†ūüė°.

I kid, of course. I actually work in the country's leading assumption factory.

Preeettty sure Isaiah Scott is calling himself a dickhead with his pose there. That's unfortunate.

Feels like NXT is gaining some steam again after a lacklustre run.

I'm loving this mini Roddy Strong push. He might be the best worker in the entire company for me. While he'll never be a main eventer, he doesn't need to be, as he's bloody great working as the vet to put over the young upstarts. Awesome little match with Tyler Breeze, maybe the best I've ever seen with Prince Pretty. Can't wait for Strong vs Velveteen. I bet The Dream comes out of it looking a million bucks.

Kushida ain't clicking. He was always gonna struggle, what with him being a. Not tall b. Not English. But it seems like they dropped the ball, especially with those first few even-steven appearances. The crowd was pretty cold for him, it's gonna be tricky booking him as a small submission guy.

Similarly, I didn't like the Mia Yim match. She already feels like a fairly weak challenger to Shayna, so having her struggle against Aliyah made no sense to me. Pretty weak follow up to that nice promo piece on her a couple of weeks back. 

The Bianca Belair squash was the polar opposite. I fucking LOVED this and thought it was the match of the show. In terms of re-establishing Belair as a threat they couldn't have put it together more perfectly. She looked like a complete monster.

Argee with this.. As for Tyler breeze he has that jobber stink on him don't get me wrong I like him and he's a good worker but it's the super model gimmick it's old  and used up it didn't work for him on the main roster if they were bringing him back to nxt they should have used it as a chance to reinvent him with something new

I completely agree. He seems solid enough in ring¬†but I‚Äôm struggling to see what, if anything, makes him stand out from¬†the crowd. The thing that makes me say ‚Äėahhh, that‚Äôs why they signed him‚Äô.¬†

Also agreed on Kushida.  It's not his fault particularly, he seems a solid worker, but whatever they thought they saw in him that made him stand out in Japan, is not obvious now. I think they really did him a disservice with their usual "best free agent in the world" schtick when they introduced him.  

That Belair squash was awesome - Bianca channelling Kevin Nash with the power bombs and Snake Eyes.  She continues to improve, and she's already excellent.  She could be one of WWE's biggest female stars if they use her properly (which nowadays is a big "if").

The two new guys didn't really make a big impact either - Scott has charisma and some nice moves, but that's not enough to stand out at the moment.  Grimes has just the worst look - so bland, and man bun does not sell "country strong".  A pass from me on both.

Also, let's start a new thread for next week eh?  AEW has a new thread per show, I think NXT can stretch to a new thread at least   ;)

Absolutely loved that new entrance music and look for Io Shari.

I missed Damian Prirst’s debut so this is the first time seeing him since re-debuting. It’s a better name than Punishment Martinez, but holly fuck does everyone whose a bit shit get the Cross-Rhodes as a finisher?

Been enjoying the Breakout Tournament, the matches have been back & forth allowing for both guys to showcase themselves.

Meltzer mentioned on Wrestling Observor that he thinks NXT will be moved back to TV via FS1 to combat AEW

To be fair, according to Dave, everything that WWE does is related to AEW in some way.
