43 Thoughts I Had Watching The Latest Episode of NXT

18th October 2017
Full Sail Arena.

  1. I’m still getting used to this theme music.
  2. At least it’s stuck for now, there was a period where we had a new one every week.
  3. Starting with the women’s triple threat, nice.
  4. Do you think Sonya Deville is pissed at Shayna Baszler for basically stealing her gimmick but doing it better? At least Shayna is an actual MMA star, and damn scary.
  5. I still see Ember Moon struggling with her gimmick. You cannot be a mystical werewolf/vampire if you are then going to turn into a preppy cheerleader halfway down the ramp.
  6. Ruby’s kicks looking BRUTAL.
  7. Hah, as if Mauro just mentioned Sonya being a less successful version of Shayna. Get out of my head, Ranallo.
  8. “She is against two of them.” Percy Watson’s first words on commentary tonight. Anyone else getting feelings of Perd from Parks & Recreation?
  9. Holding onto the ropes in a DQ match won’t help you, Ruby.
  10. SURPRISE ECLIPSE. Ember’s through to the Fatal Four Way.
  11. Have NXT always had this security backstage footage?
  12. I am all on board for Roddy joining The Undisputed Era. ROH Stable, please and thank you.
  13. Iconic Duo are the BEST. MEEEESTAHHH REEEGAL.
  14. “…insert me…”, PHRASING, Billie.
  15. Billie’s exasperated face and grunts give me life.
  16. No pop and generic entrance theme and music for Raul Mendoza. I am so sad.
  17. Aleister Black has the mother of all entrances. From the music to him raising from the dead, the smoke and jumping over the ropes to sit cross legged in the middle of the ring, it all works.
  18. I remember the first time I saw it at Takeover and I almost had a meltdown.
  19. Velveteen Dream looking damn good in that vest.
  20. I never, in a million years, would have thought a feud between Aleister Black and Velveteen Dream would work, but I am 100% invested.
  21. Raul flies like a damn superstar. Brother needs pushing to 205 Live.
  22. This Drew McIntyre interview is totally awkward.
  23. Christy St Cloud deserves a place in the ring with all of this overselling.
  24. Whoever came up with the idea of Zelina Vega being Andrade Cien Almas’ manager needs a damn promotion. What a turnaround for the guy, well deserved.
  25. Also, her pronunciation of Andrrrrade is on point.
  26. I love Kassius Ohno but does anyone else get the feeling he’s treading water? He needs a decent storyline and to stop facing jobbers day in, day out.
  27. Some better gear would be good too. Get Kevin Owens’ stylist on the case.
  28. SIX MAN TAG TEAM MATCH HYPE.
  29. SAnitY yay! Undisputed Era yay! I AM SO CONFLICTED.
  30. This is all way too generic for me. Crap music, crap video. CFO$ needs to get his head in the game.
  31. Kyle O’Reilly carries himself like a half-way animation of an ape from Planet of the Apes.
  32. Alexander Wolfe moshpit is imminent.
  33. “Cross body, and I mean BODY”, never change Mauro.
  34. Killian Dain is destroying everyone!
  35. The strength on Killian Dain is actually ridiculous!
  36. Uh oh, they’ve got you cornered now, BAY BAY.
  37. Where you gonna run to?
  38. OH SHIT AOP ARE BACK!
  39. Hah, Dain’s taunting them. “You want some? Come on then!”, AOP “…K”
  40. I can’t believe I honestly had forgotten we’ve not seen them since Takeover.
  41. Cole, Fish and O’Reilly taking this opportunity to get the hell away.
  42. WELCOME BACK BOYS.
  43. Time for a new chapter to be written.

maxresdefault

It seems very likely that former WWE superstar or should I say spookystar is set to make a return to the company over the Halloween period. Both Monday Night Raw and Smackdown live will be live over the 30th and 31st of October. Rumours are flying around that he’ll be part of one show or the other during a segment.

WWE and the future of UK PPVs

SS92SummerSlam 1992 was hosted by none other than Wembley Stadium in London. In front of 80,000 onlookers, WWE had produced a brilliant show with a huge card and a very strong roster on show.

Since then UK fans haven’t been lucky enough to get a PPV on the land. However we have had many RAW and Smackdown’s on show as well as many Live shows throughout the years. As well as the weekly and house shows, WWE produced the WWE UK tournament which was presented in Blackpool, England. The show had’t let anyone down with the top talents from the British and Irish aisles. Since the UK tournament and the defence of the title where Pete Dunne beat Tyler Bate, more questions have been brewing regarding the UK hosting another PPV.

Triple H has before stated the following:

I think that is a goal of WWE to be here in that way. It’s a very difficult process with PPV schedules and coming to the UK or globally to perform live with a live TV component, following that up with RAW and SmackDown. It’s a massive undertaking, trying to co-ordinate all that. There were 5 shows going on tonight under WWE. We have somewhere between 18 to 21 trailer trucks that come to our events, it’s tough to get them over the ocean. Is it a goal? Yes and I think tonight was one step closer to that goal becoming a reality.

Stephanie Mcmahon was asked about the possibility of bringing a PPV back to England:

The UK fans are pretty loud, pretty rowdy in a great way, and you know we are constantly evaluating that. Personally I would love to see it. I know it would be incredible.

 

So, there is hope, but the question will always remain until the UK get another show.

Rumour Mill: The Great Khali

As you’ve more than likely seen, The Great Khali made his return to WWE television this past Sunday on the Battleground PPV. As a result of the giants return, he helped Jinder Mahal retain the WWE Championship in the Punjabi Prison match. Khali stopped the challenger (Randy Orton) from escaping the outer cage.

Many rumours are floating around regarding The Great Khali and this stint within the WWE. However it seems that he’ll not be here for the long haul. Apparently, WWE aren’t too happy with the reaction regarding Jinder in India. Therefor they had Khali to side with him due to the respect that he hold in his native country. It seems that WWE have a lot of trust with Jinder with him beating Orton numerous times now and keeping the prestigious gold belt.

Only time will tell regarding both The Great Khali’s time in WWE and Jinders championship reign.
