I somewhere read that Nakamura wants to stay in NXT for a bit because the environment is very different compared to NJPW. Can't understand why Joe and Roode are on NXT, tho.

Joe is almost certainly going on the main roster soon.

And NXT really isn't "developmental" anymore. It's a mix of developing new talent and having established stars as a secondary touring brand.

Re: **NXT IS BETTER THAN RAW AND SMACKDOWN THREAD**

Roode and Joe obviously nowhere near the talent level of a Gallows and Anderson. Thus...NXT.

Would love to see Roode and maybe the Revival show up at the same time and form some kind of stable. Maybe one other person (already on the roster? AJ? Miz?)

They obviously value NJPW experience way more than TNAIDS experience, which of course they should.

I would think just based on common sense, that since both Joe and The Revival are multi time champs who lost their titles and the rematches, they will both be called up very soon. There is nothing else for them in NXT, so it either promotion or a release

Ember Moon might be the most overrated thing ever, her finisher is cool but thats like literally all she's got.

Whenever someone tells you wrestling is fake, show them this:

She's very very good in the ring, but it's frustrating how little they've developed her character. I'm hoping her inevitable feud with Asuka will bring out some of that. I went to a house show where she fought Asuka and it was easily match of the night.

Re: **NXT IS BETTER THAN RAW AND SMACKDOWN THREAD**

Ohno/Roode was excellent. Ohno has such fantastic looking punches.


Of all the things that have been unexpected in the last year in wrestling, Roode > Nakamura is one that I would never have believed a year ago, and I have always been very high on Roode even when he was in TNAIDS.

Re: **NXT IS BETTER THAN RAW AND SMACKDOWN THREAD**

So Drew McIntyre is back and I have to say he looks absolutely fantastic, I have no idea why he's not on the main roster if this is who he is now. His presence is completely different and kind of outshines the average NXT guy.

I guess the best thing about Drew being back is that it was such a shame his great entrance music had gone to waste.

Re: **NXT IS BETTER THAN RAW AND SMACKDOWN THREAD**

I can't say I was expecting anything out of that cage match, but it was really good.

Not a fan of Hideo being the next challenger for Roode. Just put the guy on 205 Live. He'll do well there, and let's be honest, that's pretty much his ceiling in WWE.

Re: **NXT IS BETTER THAN RAW AND SMACKDOWN THREAD**

It's like someone left Nak in the dryer for too long and bleached everything that makes him likeable.

He invented CM Punk's ****ty finisher so smarks love him. But the KENTA from 6 years ago is dead.

Loooooool loved this

Yeah Kenta is awful. I've been saying for a long time they need to just slap a mask on him/have him spit green mist and call it a day.
