NXT - Post NXT Takeover discussion in progress

Recommended Posts

I assume that he was teasing Keith Lee vacating the North American title? From the recap I read it doesn’t sound like anything else of note happened.

Another week and still no sign of the Tag Team champions. Where are Imperium?

Spirit of competition my arse.

Keith Lee is the kinda man that goes out there and defends both titles. Be more like Sasha and Bayley. You want all the titles for fucks sake.

Find ways of booking it to let him lose one without the other. I hate people giving up titles unnecessarily.

I always had issues with the cashing in of the X Division title in TNA but at least they were going on to something bigger and better, and I often bought into the fact that a lot of those X Division guys would never get a main title shot any other way.

Just giving up a title this way makes it look worthless.

Something I never thought I’d say - Aliyah is becoming one of my favourite parts of NXT. Her and Robert Stone make for a pair of brilliant hammy dickheads. Proper Butlins.

I’m obsessed with the weird cut in this video. Did it go wrong and get re-shot? Did they use a crash pad? Or did they do a genuine repeat of the thing Ricochet did with Velveteen, only for their incessant need to have three camera cuts a second to make it look so strange and fake?

It gets funnier every time!

I really like Lumis and Thatcher, both are brilliant additions to the roster. Thatcher is a tremendous hard man.

The camera cuts are what is going to ruin this brand, it happens on Raw and Smackdown, yes, however NXT is meant to be different. It shouldn't be as polished as it is, it should be grittier, with maybe two cameras, one up close and the hard cam. I'm tipping they no longer use the Full Sail students to do the production and have brought in the Raw / Smackdown lot?

Lmao. Definitely an edit, either a retake, or a dodgy edit to cover the fact the landing wasn't smooth. On the rotation over his arms are behind him as if he isnt going to get all the way around. After the cut, its as if his arms are in front and he overrotated.

Timothy Thatcher is everything that Cesaro should’ve been.

Not to build him up as some sort of saviour, but with RAW’s ratings down, would it be worth moving someone like Finn Balor back there to freshen things up a bit. Or is it just best to leave him where he is while we’re still in the Empty Arena era

How long has it been since Balor went back to NXT from Raw? Also didn't he move from Raw because they didn't have anything for him and they wanted to boost NXT ratings against AEW. 

Balor's time as a big fish in a big pond is over. Injury and bad timing have seen to that.

First match back in NXT was at Takeover in November, but he turned up on TV in early/mid October.

He was moved in an attempt to mess with AEW’s ratings, but clearly that didn’t work as AEW had a number of weeks where they were ahead and only lost a couple of weeks around Survivor Series time

These last few weeks are the most I've enjoyed NXT in a while. I think they're doing a great job of building up some of the new talent, and I'm really liking the variety too.

Beyond the 'ratings war~!' with AEW, NXT has definitely settled into building future stars, which is extremely difficult without audiences.

The characters are great. Grimes, Priest, Thatcher, Kross etc. They've all got something interesting going for them, and they're not just your cookie cutter indy guys. I'm glad time has been spent on making them more interesting over the weeks.
