Next Takeover is the Friday before Mania at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas.  So are they using that building three times that weekend (NXT, HoF and RAW)?

Oh cool people could pretend that NXT sold out a big arena all on their own, like they did in Brooklyn.  ::) ::)

Actually it's not there.  It's at a 10,000 seat arena down the road from AT&T.  Somehow I thought the blurb I read said a different arena.

They are also going to the Midwest in January.  Why can't these fuckers come to New England already?

So the Dallas tickets sold out in 15 minutes and all their other outside Florida shows are basically sold out days after tickets became available.

I know a lot of that is the novelty of "I want to see NXT live!", but dang.  I guess that's what you get when you have talent people are actually interested in seeing.

I love NXT's tag team division, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jordan and Gable, but that fatal fourway tag match is moronic and I don't ever want to see one again.
Of course cage matches work.  If they didn't work, everybody would still be in the cage.

If they do a fatal four way it has to either be elimination or four guys need to be in the ring at once.

I liked the Fatal Four Way. I like the gimmick of having to be in the ring to get the win but having to balance that with getting blind tagged.

I loved how he changed his pick three times during the battle royal introductions.

That battle royal was a strong reminder that yeah, this is still "developmental".  And Elias Samson is dull enough to make it to the main roster already.

Not just the match itself, but the quick promos that each woman cut, for the most part, were brutal.

And I agree about Elias Samson. If his gimmick was to be bland and boring, he hit it out of the park. As soon as the lights go out and his music starts, I stop caring.

The one girl reminding us the Asuka KO'd her was brutal. And so was that Aaliyah grim from BG. Liv Morgan is hot though. Her and Alexa should be a team.

Honky seems like the only successful music gimmick ever. Samson won't be successful unless him gimmick changes to boring hipster douche.

I haven't had a chance to watch last night's episode yet, but I did just finish the episode with the women's battle royal.

I loved that they made a predictable wrestling trope unpredictable. That's what I love about NXT. I knew Eva was still out of the ring and I knew she'd sneak up on Asuka. You could see it coming a mile away and the crowd was chanting something about Eva too. But I had totally forgotten Carmella sliding out of the ring and it was awesome when she pulled the same move on Eva.
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

Going by the micro promo, Vaudevillains are going heel again. I love cheering for them, but Enzo/Cass and Jordan/Gable have rockets strapped to them, and turning the Hype Bros heel would probably be terrible.
Of course cage matches work.  If they didn't work, everybody would still be in the cage.

Looks like the entire March 9th episode will be a 60 minute 2/3 falls Zayn/Joe match. Amazing.

WWE is probably going to spoil this themselves but the Mania Takeover card has

Read speculation Joe was supposed to show up on RAW night after Mania but now they think he will win and will stay with the title.  However, the rumor is that they want to keep Finn in NXT as their flagship star with NXT expanding their touring. 

IMO, if Finn is staying, leave the belt the belt on him and let Joe go up with all the other guys that are coming into NXT anyway.

Word is Anderson/Gallows are going to show up straight to main roster in March.

Also, Shinsuke Nakamura looks to be keeping his name.  That's great.  Maybe they'll buy his theme... 

 

One can dream.  Also, if he's looking to buy the top dog of NXT, it might be wise to give American audiences the whole package.  Oh, and here's a violin theme that they should consider.

I'd consider it a big loss in that Tye was a lower card worker in NXT that put the shine on bigger stars and got the crowd going a bit.  He's a good jobber down there, and was finding his niche.  I guess that Bull gets a bit more lower card comedy work.

It sucks that they lost a good enhancement guy. What I meant was they didn't lose say Finn and have to scramble to get the belt off him or Corbin and have to wipe HHH's tears. Blowing that nose is an all day job.

Yeah, they shouldn't have much a problem absorbing the loss, when it comes to selling tickets and Network subs and general planning.  I would have enjoyed seeing Tye enhance Nakamura, but that might not be in the cards now.  Also, "The Perfect Ten Summer" angle is ruined!  :'(

Why does it seem like they always have one guy who seems to be the main enhancement guy? It went from CJ Parker to Tye Dillinger. They'll find another no. 1 jobber in there somewhere.

That's the role Heath Slater had on the main roster for a while.  That's why they let him work all the "Legends" as a reward.

They just choose a guy who is a steady and safe worker that knows what they are doing.  I like all those guys but recognize they will never be top of the card guys.  Someone like Slater deserves one of those Santino midcard title runs but nothing like that in NXT.

My guess is Sampson transitions this way soon, kinda like Bull did after his initial push before getting fed to Corbin.  They have too many names joining the ranks soon, as well as the crowd and announcers not even caring about Sampson.

I mentioned this in my recap, but it was so nice to hear Phillips and Graves actually do their fucking jobs and try to explain things like why the Vaudevillains are acting differently and putting over Crews even in a loss.  The sooner JBL and Saxton get launched into the sun, the better.

But wouldn't these two fall into the same pattern as the others if they went up to the main roster with Vince screaming in their ear?

Whatever happened to the other two? When I first started watching NXT Lefort had a feud with Enzo and Cass and then I never really saw him again. Marcus started the freak gimmick then just vanished after Tyler Breeze kicked the shit out of him.

Lefort just had an ever changing role.  I've watched since the Hulu days in early 2013.  Lefort originally was in more of a manager role with Scott Dawson and RUSEV, almost like a modern day French Million Dollar Corporation.  Think he stuck around so long because he was Lance Storm graduate (with Emma and Breeze).  Seemed like he stayed on longer than expected.

Louis just always seemed bland whenever her appeared, even after the freak gimmick.

I know Bull seemed to just be lower card comedy character but someone needs to do it.  Especially with Tye Dillenger out, they are either going to shove someone in that role that will piss people off (Swann?).  Bull wasn't going to go places but he had a defined role that is needed, so yes, I consider that a surprise.
