We blame Vince for a lot of things, but I'm wondering if Paul Heyman wrote this.
I’ll be honest: I think this year’s WrestleMania weekend burned me out in a way from which I’m still recovering. The fall of Evolve as my reliable local promotion with a high quality product hasn’t helped; I miss the days when Evolve had Keith Lee, Riddle, and Sabre on the roster. And since I’m off Twitter, I don’t get that pro graps discourse and match recommendations from there that I once did.
Calm down friendo, I'm just joking because of how NXT books their reign of terror champions. I've got no real stakes in how well she is/isn't booked, just the WWE schedule sucks.
Is A-Kid still independent?
That match was one of the most proper murders in wrestling.
You don't want to have people discussing the two most popular wrestling shows at the same time, makes for some bad times. And the OT gives better visibility to AEW, this place is a dump q:
No, he's in a program on NXT UK now, he's signed. His partner Romo seems to have decided not to go for it
That thread has a cult mentality, keep it away from here where I can stan NXT and Io.
Eh, Asuka had the first one and she was face the end of her Ember feud.I kinda doubt they'll follow up Shayna's reign of terror with one by Rhea. Especially since Rhea is unfortunately a babyface. And outside of Velveteen Dream (who was more a tweener than anything), babyfaces don't get long reigns in NXT these days. Plus with as strongly as they put Rhea over a lot of the main roster women, you have to imagine Vince will want her up there sooner rather than later.
The crazy thing to me about wrestling is apparently the women matches get really high viewers but they are rarely featured. I don't get it.Raw was just like SD last week in that it failed to make me care about most of what was going on except Randy/Drew and Kabuki Warirors/Charlotte. At least NXT and AEW always give me multiple matches/feuds to look foward to.
Also, 3 hours and only 1 women's match is lame.
They were trying to get Asuka over as a heel in NXT once she started feuding with Ember, but it just backfired entirely because she was significantly more charismatic than Ember.Eh, Asuka had the first one and she was face the end of her Ember feud.
Anyway, after 6 months of making Rhea look strong she'll be called to the main roster so she can have handicap matches with Io against Charlotte to make her look strong.
Hence losing Sareee to the void. At least if she goes out with a singles match against Mayu it should be a banger.
Women are generally the most over segments in WWE. However only NXT really capitalizes on that in terms of screentime.
Ah, Peak Heyman. It's good to remember that he produced as much shit as anyone else.
He's been hard as fuck.
Nxt reign of terror itself is long term booking, change mah mind
In defence of the Asuka reign they actually started to do something interesting when Asuka started having to cheat to beat Ember but they totally fucked up the landing.
I’m pretty sure the unrelenting gimmick posting at WrassleGAF’s height took years off my life.There was a couple of really good wrassleGAF years where everyone got on pretty well and we had some good and crazy posters who have since left. Things are still ok though. I'd rather talk about cool shit with wrasslefriends then the dozens of pages of people wringing hands over WWE booking like it was back then. There are only like 3 people who still give a shit and haven't moved on.
We talk about so much more varieties of wrestling and so many more promotions. Lucha gets more and more accessible thanks to people posting, people talk about joshi more, DDT, people actually watch death match promotions and post about them while they are live.
Things are different, but for wrestling fans they are probably better and yeah the gimmick posting stuff is still a bit obnoxious now but is fucking NOTHING compared to a few years ago. Saying that though, people are way more touchy about their favs or promotions being criticized or jumping on people who like other shit for whatever reason, but whatever.
She became the most over performer in all of WWE during that time, NXT or main roster. She was a legit star.
“We do things differently here in Tennessee”
It's so stupid. Becky Lynch is literally their most popular star and she's not even on the show. Hell she doesn't even have a feud.
There was a backstage interview uploaded as a WWE.com exclusive where Becky basically all but says she's coming after Asuka to "collect a debt". Which means Becky is going to roll over Asuka. Because its pretty obvious at this point WWE is waiting for Shayna to get called up, or Ronda to return. Becky's reign in general is starting to quickly run out of steam.
Cause they need to build a division that has nobody. Becky being on the show adds nothing when she's got nobody to fight. Unless you want Becky vs. Charlotte #754
That's why it was incredibly dumb not to bring up Shayna for a feud with Becky after WM. Have her break arms for a couple months and you would have had a money feud you could have milked for 3-4 months.
All that talent in NXT. I find it hard to believe they couldn't call up 1 or 2 female talents to give us some fresh feuds. WWE seems utterly incapable of having more than 1 or 2 storylines involving women on a 3 hour show.
I mean, we know from reports that Vince wants Shayna and Bianca. But I'm pretty sure Triple H is holding that off until his NXT storylines are done.
Then they should star building some. They have talented wrestlers like Sane, Naomi, Asuka and Iiconics, but they have established none of them as legitimate threat to the main event scene.
