Odds on her stiffing the shit out of Dana if she fucks up?

1/1.  Odds of her stiffing the shit out of Dana if she DOESN'T fuck up? 1.5/1

Emma's done what Tyson Kidd did last year: use NXT as a place to totally reinvent themselves.  Emma really hasn't had as many awesome matches that Kidd did which is a shame because her and Dana chasing Bayley would be great.

I swear, if they really are setting up Eva winning the title IN ENGLAND they have lost their goddamn minds.

Emma is a better worker as a face, I think, but as a character she's fun as a heel. Her and Dana chasing Bayley feels like the most logical move.

Is there actual danger of them putting the belt on Eva in England? Because that's unfathomably stupid.

That might actually give the desired result of fans rioting.

The most unlikable diva beating the most likable diva actually works out well, story-wise. But then again, so does Asuka becoming the Kevin Owens (with boobs) to Bayley's Sami Zayn (with boobs).

Fuck the haters, Dana Brooke is GOAT.

Also, Emma's "I don't know this woman" reaction was gold.

I believe one of the clips for Breaking Ground was Dana doing a 450, or something like that. It was a really quick shot.

Eva Marie apparently injured Carmella at the Nashville show tonight.  This is just her hurting Bayley's BFF to goad her into a title match!

But seriously can we not have Eva Marie in NXT anymore?

James Storm just showed up at the tapings.  Also, Apollo Crews won a battle royal to be the next challenger for Finn and Alexa Bliss is apparently next for Bayley which is interesting. Don't make me choose!

Now apparently Leva Bates (aka Blue Pants) might be gone too, though she never had an actual deal with the company, which is weird since they did a shirt for her so I wonder how or if she sees money from that.

That's actually a question I had about developmental contracts: do they have provisions for merchandise sales?  Apparently Bayley's merch sells like mad so I wonder if she gets as much as a main roster talent would for the same volume.

I kind of went off about it in my recap, but it is so nice to watch a wrestling show that MOVES ON to new shit once their big shows are over.  Bayley has a new opponent, Joe has a new feud, Finn has a new opponent, the tag title scene is heating up. 

Christ take some fucking notes from the show on your own goddamn network that actually knows what the fuck it's doing, WWE.

You knew Eva Marie was going after the belt eventually. It was inevitable. A demented part of me actually wants her to win the belt and see her live up to every negative idea people have about her. She just uses the belt as a prop. Customizes it with a red strap and everything.

I didn't get around to watching last week's show so watching past two weeks back to back.

Happy to see Storm get to "the show" in this capacity at least.  Curious to see if he gets a main roster run or winds up like Rhyno, who I don't see doing anything but staying in NXT.

My main takeaway from the past two shows is the influx of all the new Divas.  Yeah, Nia Jax is probably what they originally wanted to do with Kharma.  Find it funny the vignettes are kinda similar in some ways.  What I am mainly talking about are Evie, Billie Kaye and Peyton Royce.  They have been on shows here and there but I am remembering the awkward early appearances of Bayley and Sasha, among others, back in the Hulu days.

Yeah, guys like Baron Corbin and Colin Cassidy jobbed under those same names before the gimmicks they ended up getting but they essentially showed up and then came back a little later repackaged.  The girls basically evolved in front of camera and I am curious where they go as these girls start to get entrances and little glimpses of character.

I think I read that Storm is also taking a coaching role at the PC so I doubt he's expecting much more than that, which is still a steady gig.

Right.  I knew that was the big thing, the coaching deal as endorsed by both Outlaws.  First reports I read said all Billy Gunn but I read interviews from both Storm and Bubba Dudley lately indicating Road Dogg was big getting both deals.

The Storm interview he mentioned working as a coach but indicated it may be a possibility he gets on main roster, that it is still fairly open ended right now because he literally went to Takeover and was asked to be on TV for the taping the next day.

Corey Taylor: insults Dave Brockie, gets owned via an excellent rant, sucks up to Brockie after death, and half-asses working a spot.

For fuck's sake, Taylor, Brockie went toe-to-toe with Tracy fucking Smothers. You can't even land a semi-believable shot on a green-as-grass rookie.

That's good news. To their credit they don't seem to be resting on their laurels with the women's wrestling resurgence, they've bought in a lot more talented people.
