The era of Tommaso Ciampa as NXT champion starts now! We start things off with “In Memory To…” cards for Nikolai Volkoff and Brian Christopher both of whom passed away this week. We then get a recap of the NXT title match week and Ciampa’s shocking victory over Aleister Black before going to the opening video package.

NXT (July 25, 2018)

The NXT Championship is on the line tonight so we start the show off with a video highlight the events leading up to tonight’s match up. Both men talk about devils and stuff. As is often the case with WWE produced video packages this was really well done and made the match between the two seem like a huge deal.

NXT (October 23, 2014)

Time for some more NXT. This was a review I’d done for an old blog I had. I’ve cleaned it up and added the proper Atomic Drop formatting we’ve all come to know and love, so let’s take it away.

We start things off with the standard issue NXT opening theme song before heading to Full Sail University for our opening contest. Rich Brennan, Alex Riley, and Albert/Tensai/Giant Bernard are on commentary.

She hypes tonight’s Dusty Classic finals and confirms that Bobby Fish is injured and will be out of action this Saturday. The winners tonight will face Undisputed Era in New Orleans for the NXT Tag Team Titles.

NXT (February 23, 2010)

My prayers have been answered and WWE finally put the goofy ass contest version of NXT up on the Network. That’s right kids, before it was the best American wrestling promotion NXT was a ridiculous wrestling version of America’s Got Talent or American Idol or something of that ilk.

The gimmick was that 8 NXT rookies would get paired with 8 WWE pros and compete in various challenges and matches and stuff to prove that they had what it took to be a WWE superstar. Those who didn’t have it would be voted off or something.
