Ongoing spoiler post:

Spoiler: show
They're doing Joe/Finn again at Takeover.  Ehhh....there better be a good stipulation.  And they are probably doing Revival/Alpha again.

RIP BAMF  :'(.  Good news for Alexa but proobably very, very bad news for Blake and/or Murphy.

Nia Jax vs. Asuka at Takeover.  Nia beat Bayley in what is probably a #1 contenders match and they had medics checking on Bayley afterwards, though it may be a worked injury.  Fantastic.  This Takeover might not be very good.

Joe/Finn is a great pairing so I won't complain. I loved their Takeover Dallas match, favorite match of the whole weekend, and it's likely going to be the send-off of Finn to the main roster.

Revival/Alpha is weaker booking, but the Revival are probably the best team under contract right now so I'm fine with it. Anything that gives me more chances to appreciate Scott Dawson's awesomeness is a-okay.

Asuka/Nia has potential. Asuka is awesome and having her work her schtick against a monster should prove interesting.

Are you sure they are re-running the tag match?  I mean, yes, they are short on teams and they probably want to keep Revival relevant but I read that AA beat them cleanly with STEREO ANKLE LOCKS during the taping, so why would they do it again?

Spoiler: show
That may have been the main event just for the crowd since it was non-title. I don't really see any other challengers for them being built up.  These tapings did not go all the way to Takeover, so they have an episode or two to set up a title match.

Adrienne Reese also debuted in what was said to be a great match with Asuka.

I went to the NXT show in OKC on Friday night. Tyler Breeze wrestled No Way Jose in a comedy match that was actually really damn funny. Also Breeze actually won a match.

NXT was the most fun I've ever had at a wrestling show. The crowd interaction by the talent was amazing.
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

I don't get it. They need tag teams on NXT. These three are a great unit. So of course it makes sense (© WWE) to break them up, right?

I'll give them benefit of the doubt at that moment.  The Jason Jordan/ Ty Dillenger team seemed equally capable when split.  That split seemed odd at the time but ended up much better for both.

Missed this.

Blake is injured right now and, honestly, Alexa was the star of that team so she should get more of a solo push.  B&M were basically Alexa's incompetent goons at this point.

Dawson has already had like sixteen tag partners in NXT (Kris Kristopherson's kid, Rusev, Lefort, think I'm missing others). Leave him with Dash and away from dubstep.

I know the money was supposedly better but really wondering if James Storm happy with his decision to go back to TNA.

Then again, seems like they will be doing more with Aries/Roode over what they would've done with Storm, who seemed to be going down the path of what Rhino did for a little bit.

Any word on what is going to go on with EY?  I know WWE was more interested in him above Roode according to some reports due to his versatility in characters.  If he still has that outdoors show is there a chance they just make him a main roster midcarder come draft time?

Got tickets for this too. Unfortunately, my hipster brother that lives in Brooklyn isn't going but he'll be there for SummerSlam and possibly RAW!

I really just see Aries, Roode, and EY as name guys that'll bolster NXT, in terms of starpower, as Joe & Balor get called up.  Only one I could see even getting a token midcard run on main roster is EY.

I feel like Roode could do alright on the main roster but as much as an Aries fan as I have been, something doesn't seem to be clicking in NXT for me.  That plus the size, I don't see him moving up.  Hope I'm wrong but so far something just seems off.

He's clearly talented but his whole rollout's been a mess of bad decisions. Putting him against Tye killed him out of the gate, as Full Sail wants to cheer The Perfect Ten (and I don't blame them one bit). Cien's character is also really hard to get a lock on - he's ostensibly a face, but his entrance attire and mannerisms (like lounging in the ropes) suggest cocky heel.

I dunno. I wanna see more from him, but I'm also not blown away by any means.

NXT seems to really struggle with some guy's gimmicks. Andrade, No Way Jose and Elias Samson are the 3 biggest examples of that. None of those gimmicks look like star making gimmicks. Is Andrade a pimp? A dancing, happy babyface? No Way Jose is destined to become the next Santino. Samson is boring. How do we fix that? Give him a boring gimmick. That's definitely money.

They are seriously going balls out before the roster is gutted in the Draft.  There's this and Bayley/Alexa next week (which honestly should be awesome given how suddenly great Alexa has gotten in the ring) and then Balor/Nakamura the week after.

I would throw a ton of money at AA/Revival headlining a major card. There hasn't been a single bad match between the two teams, Scott Dawson is excellent, Jordan/Gable are improving every night they're out there, Dash is fine and fills the role of heckler very well, and...

See, you compare these two teams to most of the main product and then compare them to anything TNA and it's incredible how far ahead these four are.
