Owens coming out with Cena's US Title shirt is just some next level stuff.

My feed is ****ty tonight, having more trouble than usual. Glad it held up for the women's match, but it's struggling again now.

That powerbomb on the apron always looks brutal.

I really don't like this new trend of having 6 refs separate the two people during a match.

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

I could see an angle where they kick Owens out of NXT to get him on the main roster.

EDIT: Or that.

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

So NXT is ROH now?

I'm okay with that.

That ending was worse than Ryback vs. Cena Last Man Standing!! Way to ruin a good match.

It looked like a match they put together because Zayn wasn't healthy and couldn't take too many bumps.

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

Meh on the ending. I guess I just don't care about Samoa Joe that much.

Probably would have been better to let Sasha/Becky close out the show.

Letting Sasha/Becky close out the show would basically give away that Sami wasn't shipping the title though.

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

Sasha/Becky was an all-time great womens match.

lol the rest of the card, I'm not nearly as high on NXT these days as most of you.

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

Owens vs Cena and Owens vs Joe...for the first time at the same time? Way to save one in your back pocket, not fire all your bullets at once, etc. I suppose Joe and Owens have wrestled before, but that was before Steen was big.

Fair enough, but I think they should have pulled an audible and changed the main event if Sami was hurt that much

Pretty much how I feel about the card. It was easily the weakest of the six specials. I'm still pretty high on NXT though.

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

I like the booking of NXT, but the talent is top heavy. I dig Balor, Steen, Zayn and Joe and several of the women, but I couldn't care less about most of the male wrestlers.

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

Balor's move set is just so underwhelming to me, I love his entrance and hisnlook but Jesus I'd be lying if I said I remember any of his matches

Just read about Joe's debut on Twitter. Is it worth checking out? Massive pop?

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

Balor vs Neville Takeover Rival was quite good. Devitt vs Ibushi, Wrestle Kingdom 8 also. Granted, Balor wasn't the best worker in either one.

Surprised they're letting him keep the name. Had an ECW flashback with the "Oh My God" when Joe came out.

Think Bliss is gonna make a great heel.

Sasha's still my favorite current wrestler.

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

Watching the NXT show now (unspoiled ftw) and seeing Finn reminds me of mentioning watching his documentary a few months ago. It was taken down soon after but since it's older now, it's not being taken down anymore. Here it is.
