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

There's a difference between being a heel and being boring. A heels job isn't to be boring.

For the most part people still want Owens to get pushed and even win, especially those being vocal about his workrate in NXT. Classic heels people genuinely disliked and didn't want either of those things generally.

They're switching to monthly special events now instead of one every few months.

No doubt a Vince decision.

I hope that doesn't mean it's going to hurt the quality of the other weekly shows.

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

I don't like seeing the move. Seems like they'll certainly accelerate stories now instead of letting them develop over multiple months.

The thing they've lost track of over time as a company: a wrestler doesn't always have to face the guy they're feuding with at a PPV. Tyler Breeze can hate Hideo Itami the most and face Adrian Neville on a PPV while still ultimately building toward a showdown with Itami.

I'm more worried about losing high quality, meaningful matches on the weekly shows.

In my head this sounded like Mick Foley's impression of Vince.

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

Going from four "specials" to 12 in a year seems not great. Should have gone to every other month first to see how that works.

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

That stuff this week with Rhyno threatening to jump to the front of the line in the NXT Title picture and bump Sami Zayn out of the way if he needs to was a microcosm of everything that's right about NXT.

They book their titles so well.

Surprising absolutely no one, NXT was great this week

And somehow I'm excited to see Zayn vs. Rhyno next week

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

I liked the quasi-documentary on Hideo. Great stuff. He needed something like that. I can still see him getting lost in the shuffle, but it's nice to see them trying.

Speaking of lost in the shuffle, what the hell are they going to do with Tyler Breeze? I don't see any clear path to relevancy.

Seems like Breeze just got loss in the Big 3 (Balor, Owens & Itami) being brought in. I'm glad he's still getting big matches and time so it shows they have faith in him. Personal he's been my favorite guy on NXT since the network debuted.

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

I'm just not sure there's really a place for him in NXT right now. He's clearly not winning (or even fighting for) the NXT title anytime soon.

I actually wouldn't hate calling him up to the main roster. Put him in a tag team with someone ugly. Erick Rowan sure isn't doing anything. I actually think that could work.

Well Erick Rowan is a nothingmaster, so he will look great in comparison.

Him being in a tag team wouldn't be a bad idea, just not sure who I'd team him with.

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

Make sure you turn in to this week to see the worst match in NXT since Kaitlyn/Maxine.

Dana Brooke has a really good look and is clearly athletic enough to have potential, but she really needs to be off television until the trainers can be sure that something like that will never happen again. Good God. I've never seen anyone in wrestling throw worse strikes.

Sami Zayn/Rhyno was pretty good, and Solomon Crowe was much better this week (plus it looked like he got rid of that ****ty finisher).

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

As good as everyone in NXT is I think Corbin might be my favorite right now.

He's going to be something special on the main roster one day.


Okay, I lied. Enzo is my favorite, but I do love me some Baron.
