"Reducing him to comedy" might be his WWE ceiling.

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

I can't take Crowe seriously, since he looks like a troll doll. Doesn't seem like anything special, and his catchphrase isn't catchy.

Enzo and Cassidy might as well be the next NAO, but at least they aren't built up to be "cool", so I'm a fan of the shtick.

Could not care less about Breeze. I skip his matches.

Shouldn't they have more complete jobbers in the Women's division? Is there anyone else for Dana Brooke to plow through other than Blue Pants and Becky Lynch?

Hoping Charlotte is hot-shotted into Extreme Rules against Nikki, but also kind of sick of that being a thing. Maybe she could lose dirty and build the feud a bit before she takes the Diva's Title.

If this week was an accurate representation of her readiness, Dana Brooke shouldn't be "plowing through" anybody.

Yeah, that was so bad.

Becky Lynch is now the surprise #1 contender. And Dana's clearly not ready for anyone at Bayley's or Charlotte's level.

That really doesn't leave anybody for Dana to feud with except.......ugh, sorry Alexa

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

I am newish to NXT so excuse this question. Is it normal to have WWE main rister guys to do one offs on NXT or has Adam Rose been demoted?

Normal for lower card wrestlers to find themselves on NXT.

Bayley/Charlotte squash please. I don't know what they have planned here, but I'm afraid this might be a vehicle to push Dana Brooke, and that's not a good thing.

I'd guess Baron goes over. Rhyno can much more easily eat a loss here.

I like Tyler Breeze, but I don't know what they're going to do with him. He's perpetually like 4th or 5th in the pecking order, and they've never really pushed him to the top because they're is always somebody who needs the spot more. This is no different; Finn wins.

For some reason, this all depends on Carmella. If she turns heel, Blake/Murphy win and the feud continues. If not, I can't think of a reason to not give the titles to the realest guys in the room.

IMO the most hard to predict match of the night. Gun to my head: Sasha retains, but I really don't know. Should be a really good match though.

They really threw a wrench in this last night announcing that Owens will fight Cena at EC. It's tough to see him with the NXT and US titles simultaneously. Another big question mark is the health of Zayn. Is he actually ready to go? Or will they pull a fast one and have someone (maybe Owens, maybe someone else) "take out" Zayn prior to the match?

If they go that route, they could have the #1 contender from earlier fight instead. Or do something completely unexpected like have Cesaro come out and fight Owens.

Should be a good event. These NXT specials have never disappointed yet.

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

the NXT characters look way more interesting than the current WWE roster imo

i don't watch NXT but the "spoilers" from NXT on raw definitely made me interested in NXT

Pretty sure the Owens/Cena match at EC is non-title.

Why on earth would they do that? A non-title match wouldn't fit with either character. LOLWWE if you are right.

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

There is a new "insider" posting on r/squaredcircle. He posted about Owens Raw debut the day it happened. For tonight's NXT, he's calling...

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

Just marathoned all the eps since baseball season started and got one more to go so I probably won't be watching this live, but if I renew my network subscription at the end of the month, how do I make sure WWE knows it's ONLY to be able to continue to see Sash Banks?

It's a small thing, but it doesn't seem like a #1 contender match for the brand's top title should curtain-jerk.

I don't mind it. Gotta hype the crowd up early, and Baron/Rhyno ain't gonna do that. Only other option would be the tag titles, but I like putting that match on later.

Meh I dunno, the NXT hardcores don't necessarily need to be warmed up early the way a Raw crowd in a casual wrestling city does.

Guess I just think that a brand's top title is the reason wrestlers are all supposed to be there, and fighting for a title shot should be in the last three matches.
