NXT (September 13, 2017)

We’re back with another action packed episode of NXT. How weird is it that going into this episode I knew what the majority of the matches were going to be because they hyped them up last week during the show? Zany isn’t it?

NXT (September 6, 2017)

Time for some NXT. This week’s episode starts with a video package detailing Hideo Itami’s quest for respect and how it led to him butting heads with Kassius Ohno. These two will collide in a No DQ match tonight!

We get the opening video and then it’s off to Full Sail for wrestling action. Mauro Ranallo, Nigel McGuinness and Percy Watson are calling the action.

The show begins outside the Full Sail Arena. Sanity and security geeks are all laid out. People call for Regal who shows up and tells someone to get the medics as the unknown assailants run off into the night.

Inside the arena Percy Watson is like, “It must have been those ROH guys!” and Nigel McGuiness is like, “You don’t know that. It could have been anyone.” None of this matters though because the champ is here! Continue reading “NXT (August 30, 2017)”

NXT (August 23, 2017)

We start things off with a video package highlighting TakeOver: Brooklyn III while Code Orange plays. WWE always does a solid job of video packages and highlights and this is no exception.

We head to the Barclays Center for tonight’s wrestling action which means these matches were recorded prior to TakeOver and that they’re more or less going to be wrestling for wrestling’s sake, which is fine by me.

NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III (August 19, 2017)

Time for a wrestling show! Time for NXT TakeOver! We kick things off with a band called Code Orange rocking out live while some sort of video package for TakeOver plays. Code Orange is pretty good and I’ll probably check them out at some point in the future.

It’s a fine way to open the show since it’s different and doesn’t really fuck with the flow of the show the way musical performances in the middle of wrestling shows generally do.

This is the final NXT show before TakeOver: Brooklyn III and the main event will see Roderick Strong taking on the #1 contender for the NXT Championship, Drew McIntyre. If Strong wins he gets a shot at Bobby Roode at some point in the future. If McIntyre wins…uh…I don’t know. Nothing happens I guess. The stakes couldn’t be more middle of the road!

We start things off with highlights of Ciampa turning on Gargano at TakeOver Chicago as well as Ciampa’s promo afterwards. I had forgotten how angry I was at Ciampa, but this video package did the trick and my hatred came rushing back. Johnny Gargano will be here tonight!

We also see footage from last week of sad Roderick Strong hugging his mom and his fiancee after his loss to Bobby Roode in his championship match.

No opening theme song video this week since we go right to Full Sail for action!

After some hype for tonight’s main event and the opening video package we get Nigel McGuinness introducing us to the latest addition to the NXT commentary team: Mauro Ranallo. AW YE YE! Mauro shows up and says he’s glad to be here in NXT. I’m glad for him to be here too since he’s legit one of the best announcers. They then head down to ring for the first bout of the night…
