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

As much as the Backlash card sucks, it's a goddamn worldbeater compared to this garbage NXT Takeover card. Holy **** is is bad.

Please glorious DDT Itami to the depths of 205 Live, please and thank you Bob Roo.

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

Asuka is the only NXT foreign import who's ever seemed all that interesting with me and now they seem to be ****ing with her character when it was nearly perfect. Why?

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

Next Takeover is 3 months away. I have no idea what they're going to be doing on their weekly show because the event can probably be set up with about 2 weeks of episodes.

If I had to guess:

Bobby Roode (c) vs one or more of Kassius Ohno/Drew McIntyre/Roderick Strong/Aleister Black
Asuka (c) vs Ember Moon
Authors of Pain (c) vs Heavy Machinery
Pete Dunne (c) vs Tyler Bate
Johnny Gargano vs Tommaso Ciampa (probably with some brutal stipulation like last man standing)

That's basically a complete card as it is. Add something like Sanity vs the people above that aren't in title match and some random Velveteen Dream nonsense and you've got the pre-show/week after episode taken care of too.

I guess we might be in for some debuts and a lot of jobber squashes?

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

Catching up on a month of NXT today. Ciampa turn and explanation was perfectly executed. Wonder how they hold the heat for however long it takes to get them both in the ring together though.

I really hope they go with the 'Sicilian Psychopath' persona Ciampa had in ROH. Dude is Badass...

Highly recommend this week's episode. Great stuff start to finish. Last woman standing match was outstanding.

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

NXT is good again because they're actually advancing storylines on the main show instead of the Raw/Smackdown holding pattern crap.

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

yup. They got in a pattern for a bit where everything was treading water for the next takeover but now ****s happening on the show again. I've watched more NXT this month than raw/smackdown/ppv combined. LWS match was very good.

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

Really surprised that they went with the 100% clean win for AOP there.

Like Gargano's new theme (assuming that's what it was).

Holy **** that women's match was awful.

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

Watching LWS episode now so I'm a bit behind. But what is the possible future for Velveteen Dream? A few good months in nxt, maybe a deep run in a #1 contenders battle royal?

Unrelated, why do they show commercials to entice people to buy the Network, on the Network?

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

Anybody in for this?

Been marathoning last couple months most of the day. Drew McIntyre must be on the same diet as Jinder Mahal. Getting bigger by the week. I guess Heath Slater shows up jacked next.

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

Two hour is the sweet spot for a wrestling show.

Any sporting event, really.

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

I understand that they're building to Ciampa/Gargano, and they want to push Almas.

But that was a really ****ing dumb ending.

Agreed on the dumb ending. Enjoyed the match though, even if the kickouts were a bit Supermannish.

Really looking forward to a year from now when Authors of Pain are wearing face makeup and only showing up in Breezango skits.

Would be really dumb to take the titles off AOP here.

Don't think they will, but this is better than it should be. Giving me doubt.

EDIT: Welp
