WWE launches new U.K. series - NXT UK

Recommended Posts

Yeah, the WWF would've been a powerhouse in the mid-90's if it's opening bumper was, "The World Wrestling Federation; for over 50 years the revolutionary force in pro wrestling".

If WWE don’t do something big with Marcell Bartell, it’d be a huge waste of natural talent. Instantly dislikable, a clear character, as crisp and believable as a Regal, with the nastiness of a Dave Finley. Anything pre-WWE anyone would recommend me hunting down?

My word, Tyler Bate really is a stud isn’t he? Given his height I don’t think he’ll get a direct path up the main roster but the guy is gonna be a star wherever he ends up, long as he stays fit. Fucking twenty years old too, ridiculous.

Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner are two cracking additions to the roster, Barthel in particular can easily be slotted into the main event picture. It’s good to see then incorporate a few more backstage skits and interviews to build up the characters too. Scala is a decent call for Johnny’s mouth piece. The blue peter guy stinks though, seems to gain and lose a few inches in height from segment to segment. At least keep the height illusion consistent!

Nice to see Coffey and Dunne got to dress themselves for the invetable contract signing. Can’t help feel that Gibson should be the one to dethrone Pete Dunne at Blackpool though, imagine him as champ and NXT UKS official number 1. The heat would be nuclear.

It’s great that Scala has been made Saint’s mouthpiece, but every move he makes is really off putting. He looks like he’s been animated on a PS2

I've fallen a fair bit behind on this, trying to catch up before the Takeover (at which point I assume/hope they'll revert to 1 episode a week).

I really can't believe WWE let someone on screen with the ring name Jack Starz. Horrible.

The whole thing is a bit whacky mismatched tag team partners heavy too. Hopefully that'll die down once they crown the tag champs.

Edit: also, whilst I'm not sure it entirely suits him/them, I fucking love the Coffey/Gallus theme.

Good music.

Mark Coffey has been using that theme in ICW for a while now. Suits his character more in icw than what I see they are doing in wwe uk

Good stuff @Weezenal will be keeping an eye on the VultureHound twitter feed for updates, looking forward to hearing how it looks (amazing I presume).

WWE appearing on ITV to promote Takeover and the Performance Centre is hilarious.

I don't follow, why is it hilarious? Because of WOS? Broadcasters don't care about that sort of thing, they care about ratings. Getting interesting guests on GMB means better ratings. It's the same reason BBC report on who wins I'm a Celebrity. It's content.
