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

I'm deeply skeptical about the whole Drew McIntyre thing (don't watch a ton of the weekly show) but I guess I'll give him a shot here.

The buildup to this event was such ****ing garbage. Amazing that they're pulling this off.

When you actually have a meaningful belt, the build to a title match doesn't have to be that strong.

I always sort of hate the execution of the guy putting his leg on the bottom rope at the last second while not otherwise making the slightest attempt at a kickout.

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

Really though

A finisher --> B kickout --> A finisher --> A finisher attempt --> B quickly closes out the match in non-flukish fashion like nothing just happened

That's a garbage sequence and no respectable booker or agent does that ****.

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

Really enjoyed that ppv. I don't follow NXT storylines at all, but it really just feels so much more of an intense and meaningful product than wwe. The matches felt way more organic and real than general choreographed wwe matches.

Had never heard of Ember moon, very impressive, love her look.

re: finish of the main event, I got distracted watching the 9th inning of yanks/sox so it didn't bother me

Just the appetizer. Got another 10 hours of wrestling over the next three days. I hope they learned their lesson from Mania and keep this reasonable tomorrow.

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

Do you think they put Gargano in 205 or the main roster when he debuts? That's someone I would have got behind going over Neville instead of this Titus Worldwide nonsense
