    Past the first Riley/Owens match, I'm not interested in another. Riley won't win...then what does he do? As much as i hated him on commentary, I'm already bored of him in the ring. His character sucks frankly.

    Looking forward to the triple threat. Becky winning I think.

    One would think that Owens will pin him cleanly but there must have been somekind of a plan behind bringing Riley back, and if it was just to lose what was the point ?

    At the same time, you can't have him beat Owens even if it's through a Sami run in or something. Owens HAS to go over. It's the only way. They've kind of booked Riley into a corner with this.

    They need to repackage him as the cowardly heel. Keep sneaking away from wins and eventually loses now and then. It makes the best out of his lack of...well everything. He isnt too bad on the mic and this character will build on that.

    I dunno I think even if he loses and looks good in defeat it can work. There are so many other people on the roster he could then work with after. I am not as down on Riley as everyone else is. Sure he stunk on commentary but he isn't horrific in the ring. The better workers could put on some good matches with him and NXT is stacked with them.

    Owens, Sami, Finn, Itami, Breeze etc...

    Riley is the definition of an average superstar. He's not awful on the mic...but he's not great either. He's not great in the ring...but there is a lot worse out there still employed. He has potential...but just can't seem to find his niche to get him over. He's not really that bad and can be a decent star for the company, but he just needs a lot of work.

    That being said the whole Owens/Riley thing was fun but yeah pointless now. The first match was more than enough of a blow off.

    I am

    I am just questioning why it is Riley again, and so soon

    At least they could have had him go away for a while and then come back refocused with a new style or drive/determination

    I really hope we're in for more Dana Brooke touching herself this week

    I suppose Kevin Owens destroying not-so-silent rage Alex Riley will be enjoyable as well.

    We won't get any Dana this week because of the triple threat number one contender's match between Charlotte, Becky and Bayley. Sorry folks.

    Re: NXT Discussion - April 22nd, 2014

    - Dillinger/Balor was a fun squash. Dillnger rules. Digging the prospect of a Breeze/Balor feud.

    - Looks like we got Dana touching herself after all. Her promo started off so weird. Also if you Google Dana's Playground, you get results for a trampoline company in Mesa, Arizona (I only googled it because I thought Dana's Playground was a porno site)

    - Owens promo was......good? It felt like lazy, pre-WWE Steen attempts at being funny and a comedian, but if you think about it, Owens really shouldn't be taking Riley seriously, so the lackadaisical attitude is somewhat appropriate. It also further pushed Steen's bully character by how he was talking to Devin. So I'll say good.

    - Triple Threat was pretty solid. Not a huge fan of triple threats of course, and it had the elements as to why I feel that way. It made me kind of laugh that the Bayley/Charlotte top rope double team spot got a "Holy Shit" chant. I mean, it was cool, but it made me smile how the NXT crowd flipped out for it. Clever finish. Charlotte's face post match was pretty great. Just glad Bayley didn't win.

    - Okay, now RIP CJ Parker? I forgot these tapings were in reverse. Parker actually has looked decent for his final matches. Itami's kick still feels anticlimactic, even with the somewhat set-up. Curious as to what program is next for Itami after the Breeze feud and the special episode dedicated to him.

    - Wait, we're back to Rhyno squashes? Why? "Welcome Back" chants Man, the reverse taping order has given a weird feeling to the past few NXT episodes.

    - That Blake/Murphy serenating segment was amusing. I'm oddly into this tag team feud right now.

    - SAYITTOMAHFAAAACE~! Crazy to Riley get over in his return, get booed in Columbus, and get over again in Full Sail. I was kind of into Riley's approach in this rematch. I liked this for what it was. It was a little similar to their previous encounter, but still kind of nice. Post match was really fucking sweet. We've wanted a segment like that for a while with those two. And it delivered. Great shit. Awesome way to end the show. Zayn rocks.

    - Y'know, seeing a sea of fans do Finn Balor's entrance pose with him to his theme is pretty boss. Really, the NXT audience seems so much more attentive and into-it, so to say. Bo Dallas's Star Wars I remark from this week's Raw would've gotten such a reaction here rather than the dull murmurs he got on Raw.

    Poor Tye Dillinger. You'll catch a break one day, Tye. I hope so anyway.

    holy shit I am so behind a Breeze/Balor feud you don't even know.

    - Regardless of anything else about that brief Dana Brooke interview, her condescending pat on Devin Taylor's head was a nice, douchey touch.

    - Kevin Owens, you're being too nice to Alex Riley in this interview. I mean, I appreciate you dicking Devin Taylor around a tad - man tonight is not Devin's night, first Dana now Kevin - and the casual, detached, demeanor that's going on here, but... It's Alex Riley. No-one's going to mind if you confuse him with dirt on the bottom of your boot and move on. Hell, we'd probably do the same.

    - Gotta be honest, I'm quite enjoying Becky Lynch's work recently. Bans is still on top of my list, but Lynch's been slowly crawling up there, y'know? Plus, lol, that was a pretty creative pin cover. That's what happens when you try to ADD A LIL' FLAIR to it and end up not being able to see what the shit your opponent is doing mid-submission.

    - CJ Parker? Oooo, this is awkward. This is getting to the point where he'll still be showing up a year from now because holy shit, you guys, they taped a LOT.

    Itami completely no-selling the first dainty flower kick CJ threw and proceeding to stare at CJ until he crumbles might just be one of my favorite sequences ever.

    - Are we just... going back to Rhyno squashing nameless jabronis? Well, technically not 'going back' if it was taped only recently into Rhyno's return. Still, though.

    - Lol, that Murphy/Blake segment. Those dorks. I love them so much.

    - OH BOY ALEX RILEY. sigh. In a perfect world Kevin Owens would enter, literally murder Alex, and leave without saying a word. Then Alex is never seen again. oh, well. Still time left in the world for that to happen.

    SAMI ZAYN. <3

    Re: NXT Discussion - April 22nd, 2014: Avril Lavigne Invented Punk Rock

    I'm down for Balor Vs Breeze.

    I really enjoyed the Women's 3 way. It wasn't at the standard of a takeover match, but it was best TV match in the division for a long time. Becky winning makes the most sense because we've seen Charlotte Vs Sasha and Bailey Vs Sasha a hell of a lot already, Sasha Vs N Bex T sounds fresh. Innovative finish, that figure 8 leg lock of Charlotte's meant she couldn't see Becky slowly crawling for the cover. Sasha mocking Becky's accent later in the show was hilarious.

    Itami <3

    Rhyno squash. He's probably gonna put someone over at the next takeover, Itami maybe? or Corbin.

    Owens Vs Riley wasn't that good, and the post match stuff makes what came before forgettable. Owens feuding with Zayn is what the people want to see, not feuding with Riley.

    Looks like some good things in prospect for the 5th special:

    Steen/Zayn II
    Sasha/Becky
    Balor/Breeze
    BAM/Enzo and Big Cass

    Itami looking like the odd man out.

    Best episode in recent memory this week.

    -The women's triple threat was fun and the finish was creative. I am all for Becky getting a chance at the title as she has been impressive recently. Feel like her and Banks will probably mesh pretty well too. I dug the double team with Bayley and Charlotte by the way.

    -Main event was also good. Riley more than held his own and Owens came out of the match looking like gold as he always seems to do just lately. Terrific ending to the show with Zayn hitting the dive. Zayn and Owens is a banker for the next special. I've read the spoilers so won't give anything else away but

    Anyway as I said best episode in recent memory.
