NXT - Post NXT Takeover discussion in progress

As the last 30+ years of booking shows Keith Lee will either be dancing with The New Day, cucking Rusev with Lashley or become Junkyard Dog 2.0 within weeks. Vince is an old fashioned racist and he books accordingly. 

If they run a Lashley and Lee double teaming Lana angle it will simultaneously be the best and worst thing ever booked.

Wow! Best pounce spot I’ve ever seen. Perfectly timed and for a moment it felt like a genuinely dangerous and chaotic scene with Cole pinballing into the crowd. 

Thing I love most about Keith Lee is his selling. He’s awesome as a sympathetic babyface for someone his size. Dusty Rhodes vibes.

Props to Roddy Strong, some great work after they called an audible. Him and Kyle O’Reilly are such loveable goofs and the consistent highlights for Undisputed Era. Poor Bobby Fish can’t seem to catch a break.

Don’t know what to make of Cameron Grimes. Good worker that has something about him and they’re clearly high on him. But this hipster hillbilly thing isn’t really coming together. He’s one of those guys that’d probably get over if you stripped things back instead of sticking loads of hats on him, so to speak.

The thing is, without any gimmicks, he's just another bloke on the roster with long hair and a beard, except he's a bit pudgier and worse-looking than the rest - but not enough for it to be a selling point. So he needs something. I don't think this current persona is it, though. There was nothing in that promo that stood out as relatable or interesting.

Big win for NXT in the ratings this week. 810k to 663k. I'm surprised how low both are though. Thanksgiving Eve to blame? 18-49 demo right down so maybe.

So Meltzer will be claiming another win for AEW then...

Already seeing AEW fans say it's not fair that NXT were involved with Survivor Series and that's the only reason they got another bump blah blah blah yawn. Fuck off. The brainwashing is so boring now.

It's not just the AEW fans. Bryan Alvarez said last week that 'NXT won... but it wasn't truly an NXT show due to all the WWE talent involved' and Meltzer did the whole '...well the important demos were won by AEW so the overall rating doesn't matter'.
It's just sad at this point.

Equally, you can't have a sensible discussion about it because other people are desperate for them to fail. 

WWE's audience skewing so old is a genuine concern for them. TV companies are more concerned about the younger demographic because they spend more money and are therefore more important to advertisers. 

There's no way to put a positive spin on this week's numbers for AEW. It bounced back from a poor number the other week so hopefully will again. 

Actually, given it was easily the worst episode of Dynamite, the fact a load of people missed it might be the positive.

Cast it out and got a bite

Also according to some, “total viewers doesn’t matter”

Edit: oh, and the AEW fandom are a massively toxic bunch

I find it odd how obsessed with ratings a lot of wrestling fans are. Imagine watching Hamilton vs Hearts draw 0-0 and being pleased that it had more viewers than Shrewsbury vs MK Dons.

If you had of been here last week and paid attention you would know that whilst Hearts vs Hamilton had more total viewers Shrewsbury vs MK Don's had more fans in the 45-48 age range which is the number the FA consider.
