    NXT Episode XX



    NXT
    January 3rd 2018
    Allen County War Memorial Coliseum In Fort Wayne, Indiana

    #ContractsTablesAndHeartache

    Renee Young, Dustin Rhodes, and Mauro Ranallo welcomed the NXT universe to the first show of 2018. They discussed the volatile nature of previous contract signings in NXT and what that could mean tonight when NXT Champion Roderick Strong, former champion Bobby Roode, and the wildcard Eric Young will all be in the same ring at once to make their triple threat match at NXT Takeover Philadelphia for the NXT Championship official.

    The opening contest saw Gabriel and Uriel Ealy taking on Heavy Machinery in a second round match up of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. The four big men put on a hard hitting contest that would make the toughest of men tremble. Both teams unleashed a brutal
    onslaught of attacks trying to put their opponents down but it was The Ealys, who came out aggressively from the jump, trying to dispel any rumbling that they did not deserve to get a pass to the second round, who put away the fan favorites when they managed to hit a powerslam splash combo on Tucker Knight for the three count.

    Footage was shown from after the December 6th episode of NXT, the footage showed the closing moments of the fatal four way match to determine the number one contender for the United Kingdom Championship, that saw Jordan Devin spring off the top rope with a moonsault onto Jack Gallagher for to win the match. The footage transitioned into WWE Network Exclusive footage from backstage immediately following the match. The footage showed Gallagher, disappointing from the loss, sitting in the locker room area. Joseph Conners came in the room and demanded to know what gives Gallagher the right to lose the match for everyone? Gallagher said that it was a tough loss for everyone and he would greatly appreciate a few moments alone. Conners laughed and said sure, he turned to walk away, then turned back and delivered a boot to the side of Gallagher's head, knocking him to the ground. As Gallagher tried to stand, Conners started hitting him in the back of the head repeatedly. The footage ended and the cameras were backstage live, where Cathy Kelley was standing with Conners, who smiled ever so arrogantly. Kelley asked what triggered such a violent attack on Gallagher? Conners said that if anyone desereves to be number one contender it's him, and Gallagher took that away from him. The smile faded from his face as Jordan Devlin approached. Devlin said that if he's looking for someone to blame for losing the four way, look no further. Devlin continued saying that if Conners feels so strongly about pressing the issue that he needs to attack unsuspecting victims, he should come out to the ring tonight and see what happens when someone is ready to defend them self.

    Tessa Blanchard knocked at NXT General Manager William Regal's door and a voice could be heard from inside telling her to enter. As she enters the office, Regal is waiting for her. Before he can speak, Blanchard asks where her contract is? Regal said that had she preformed the way he knows that she could have, he would have walked down to the ring that night and given her a contract on the spot, but she used tactics unbecoming to beat Kairi Sane. Blanchard started to raise her voice, saying that she didn't do anything wrong, she is a legacy in the wrestling world and she will not be treated this way. Regal told Blanchard to watch her tone. Regal went on to say that he doesn't like how she has gone about her business as of late, but her match against Sane a few weeks ago impressed WWE COO Triple H, that was one of the things he and Triple H discussed last week. Blanchard looked on eagerly, then asked if that meant she was getting the contract? Regal said that they both wanted to see how she fairs once more, her and Sane each have one fall over the other. Blanchard started to argue but Regal cut her off, saying that at Takeover Philadelphia, Blanchard will go one on one with Sane, and if there is any foul play, Blanchard will never be allowed in an NXT arena again.

    The second match of the night saw Rhea Ripley getting her hands on the woman who has played mind games with her for weeks, Nikki Cross. Cross began laughing as the bell rang, Ripley looked on confused. The referee tried to ask Cross if she was OK, but Cross wouldn't take her eyes of Ripley. Ripley told Cross it was time to fight, but Cross kept laughing. Ripley had enough, and threw a punch to the face of Cross. The punch seemed to have hurt Cross more emotionally than physically. Cross looked at Ripley, hurt, but the rage slowly grew on her face and she dove on top of Ripley, taking her to the ground. Cross began smashing Ripley's head off the mat, the referee tried to pull Cross off of Ripley, Cross stood up and ran at the referee. Ripley used the distraction to roll out of the ring and collect herself. As Ripley held her head, she turned around just as Cross leapt off the top turnbuckle to the outside, crashing down on Ripley. Cross picked Ripley up by the hair, dragged her onto the entrance way and hit a swinging fisherman's neckbreaker on the steel. Cross stared at Ripley, then pulled her up by her hair again, screaming at Ripley, asking how she could make her do this? Ripley tried to push Cross away, but Cross screamed loudly, and hit another neckbreaker. As medics ran down to check on Ripley, Cross left through the crowd.

    Split screen footage of NXT Champion Roderick Strong, and one of his challengers at Takeover Philadelphia Bobby Roode arriving at the arena was shown.

    Christy St. Cloud was standing backstage with Mike Bennett. She asked Bennett how he feels about the NXT Rumble match being announced? Bennett said that he feels really good, really confident. He went on to say that at Takeover Houston he defeated Kassius Ohno, and at Takeover Philadelphia he will win the Rumble and go onto win the NXT Championship. St. Cloud asked how Bennett felt about being interrupted a few weeks ago by Ohno? Bennett got angry, saying that Ohno can't move on, but he can, he beat Ohno, and he isn't looking back, Maria isn't going to give birth to the child of a loser, he is going to win the Rumble and no one will stop him.

    The final match of the night saw the number one contender for the United Kingdom Championship, Jordan Devlin, going one on one with Joseph Conners. Devlin opened the contest with an open hand, a show of respect. Conners responded with a right hand to the face of Devlin and the match was on! Both men brought the fight, Devlin utilizing his high flying offence, while Conners used a more aggressive style. Towards the end of the match Devlin jumped to the top turnbuckle, but Conners pulled his foot out from under him, causing Devlin to fall hard, hitting his head hard off the turnbuckle before crumpling to the ground. Devlin tried to make it back to his feet, as Conners circled him, screaming that he deserved to be number one contender not Devin. Devlin got to his feet, struggling to stand still, and yelled for Conners to bring it. Conners smiled, possibly impressed and began throwing punches to the face of Devlin, but Devlin fired back with chops to the chest of Conners. Conners got the better of the situation and knocked Devlin stumbling back into the ropes, Devlin bounced back and delivered a huge corkscrew roundhouse to the head of Conners. Both men were down, Devlin pulled himself on top of Conners for the pin. As the ref counted the three, Conners put his foot on the bottom rope, but Devlin pulled it off before the ref could see.

    Devlin rolled out of the ring, holding his head and still visibly stumbling as he made his way to the back.

    William Regal was standing backstage, addressing a large amount of security. Regal said that he will not have his show descend into madness, tonight during the contract signing, if anyone looks like they are going to engage in physical violence, get them out of there immediately.

    Dustin Rhodes, Mauro Ranallo and Renee Young discussed the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Young said that next week the Cruiserweight Champion Kalisto, and Gran Metalik return to take on the two time NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival. Rhodes said that he couldn't be happier with how the tournament is progressing and he knows his father would be proud.

    NXT General Manager William Regal made his way out to the ring, followed closely by security. The security circled the ring as Regal looked at the table in the center of the ring, and thanked the crowd for being there. Bobby Roode's music hit, and the former NXT Champion made his way to the ring. Roode shook Regal's hand and sat down at the table. The lights went out. The word SAnitY came across the screen as Eric Young made his way down to the ring. Regal extended a hand, but Young walked past him and circled the table. The crowd went wild as the NXT Champion Roderick Strong made his way onto the stage. Strong looked down at his Takeover opponents before making his way down for the signing. Strong shook Regal's hand and sat down across from Roode. Regal thanked all three men for being here tonight and said that he hopes they can keep things civil. Young jumped up in the corner of the ring and sat down on the top turnbuckle. Roode said he always keeps things civil, but he would appreciate it if Strong would stop looking at him the way he is. Strong smiled and said he was sorry, he just wanted to know what Roode was thinking, when he came out and saved Roode from a three on one beat down and Roode returned the favor by hitting him in the face with the championship. Young laughed at the two men bickering. Roode looked at Young, then back at Strong and said that he could have taken all three members of SAnitY on, he could take the whole roster on, in case anyone forgot he was the longest reigning NXT Champion in history! Strong responded by saying that Roode may have been the longest reigning champion, but only one man holds the championship now. Roode looked furious as Strong lifted the championship above his head. Regal asked the men to calm down, and get the contract signing underway. Roode grabbed the clipboard from Regal's hand and signed it, before throwing it in Strong's direction. Strong looked at Roode, then at Young, then signed the contract. Regal asked Young to sign the contract. Young jumped down and walked over to the table. He signed the contract and grabbed a microphone. Young said that all of this is well and good, but he thinks he can make things better. Strong and Roode both stood up from the table. Regal raised his voice and told everyone to calm down. Young started laughing and said everything is better, with a little chaos. Killian Dain and Alexander Wolfe came through the crowd and over the barricade. Regal screamed for security to stop them, but the big men were too much and they took out the security like they were nothing. Dain and Wolfe got onto opposite sides of the ring apron, as Young threw pushed the table to the side and positioned himself so Roode and Strong were on one side of the ring. As Dain and Wolfe entered the ring, Roode and Strong looked at each other, both knowing what had to happen, then dove at Wolfe and Dain. Young jumped at Strong and helped Dain take the champion down. Roode clotheslined Wolfe over the top rope, then went to leave the ring. Roode looked back at Strong being beaten by two men, looked up in the air, muttering to himself, then stormed across the ring to help Strong! Roode pulled Young away and began delivering right and lefts, Dain ran at Roode, but Strong grabbed him trying to get the upperhand on the big man. Roode kicked Young in the mid section and went for the Glorious DDT, Young pushed Roode away and rolled out of the ring. Roode turned back and began helping Strong take on Dain. As Roode threw a few punches at the big man, Strong ran at the ropes, came back and delivered a huge knee to the face of Dain. Dain stumbled back, right into Roode who delivered a huge spinbuster through the table!! Roode stood up and threw his hands up in the air, began shouting Glorious, but Strong turned him around and delivered "The End Of Heartache", laying out Roode! Strong grabbed his championship and jumped onto the middle turnbuckle, shouting for Young, who had made his way up the entrance way, to come and try to take the championship!

    Re: NXT

    NXT Review:

    Nice touch, acknowledging that contract signings usually have shenanigans.

    Cant say I expected this outcome. Ealy's looked great and getting the pass from the first round definitely helped.

    UK guys back. Connors gets pissed at Gallagher for losing but looks like now he will eat a loss from Devlin.

    Interesting. Good choice putting the rubber match at Takeover. Can Tessa get the win without resorting to cheating? Looking forward to this one.

    Jesus, Nikki has lost her mind. My intrigue is growing, and very curious to find out what her motives are when that comes.

    Bennett is back! Excellent making mention of Ohno and how he cant move on. Excited he is back.

    After a really great back and forth showcase, it fekt like the move that put Connors away shpuld have truthfully only been a two. I get how it should have been, it just felt a little anti climactic. Interesting move by Devlin pulling the leg back, smart move but a little heelish.. This definitely will keep this feud going which I approve because it sounds like they put on a hell of a contest.

    Revoluchas vs Revival next week....uh....YES!!!!

    So many little moments i loved in the contract signing. Young sitting on thw turnbuckle instead of at the table, regal demanding civility, Roode's annoyance of having to help Strong. Was really looking to see a mild show of respect at the end by Strong and Roode but alas, Strong pulls a Roode and lays him out after recieving help. Excited for this triple threat 1000%.

    Another wonderful week in the world of NXT. Great announcement for Takeover, an exciting main event and even more momentum for the NXT Championship three way! Excited for the next one sir!

    WWE NXT NXT Episode XXI



    NXT
    January 10th 2018
    Hulman Center In Terre Haute, Indiana
    #ClashOfTheTitans


    With just three episodes left till Takeover Philadelphia, everyone on the NXT roster was looking to prove themselves. Mauro Ranallo, Dustin Rhodes, and Renee Young welcomed the NXT universe to the show, and discussed the final second round match of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, The Revival taking on the Cruiserweight Champion Kalisto and Gran Metalik which will be the main event of the night. Young also mentioned that earlier today on Twitter, NXT General Manager William Regal announced that due to SAnitY's interruption last week during the NXT Championship Contract signing, Alexander Wolfe will take on Aleister Black.

    Before they can say anymore, Lars Sullivan's music hit, and the big man made his way to the ring for the opening contest. Sullivan paced back and forth in the ring as he awaited his opponent. NXT General manager William Regal made his way onto the stage. Regal said that he was very disappointed in the past couple weeks with how his roster has behaved, but no superstar has embarrassed him more than Sullivan, who disrespected WWE COO Triple H right to his face two weeks ago, and then assaulted Rob Van Dam leading to a match being cancelled. Sullivan laughed, clearly happy with himself. Regal said he was glad Sullivan found it funny, because Triple H has sent an opponent specifically for Sullivan, someone to teach him a lesson in respect, THE BIG SHOW! Sullivan looked on as The Big Show made his way to the ring, greeted by the applause of the NXT crowd. The two men faced off in the center of the ring. Show began yelling in Sullivan's face, calling him young blood, and asking if he was ready to get his ass beat? Sullivan showed no fear and threw the first punch, cracking the veteran right in the jaw! Show stumbled a bit, and looked shocked, the shock turned to a smile, and he said that was a good one. Sullivan again looked pleased with himself, until Show grabbed him with both hands around the neck, and tossed him into the corner. Show ran at Sullivan and delivered a huge clothesline in the corner, Sullivan started to stumble out, but Show pushed him back into the corner. The crowd was show's name, but he held one finger up to his mouth, motioning for the crowd to listen. Show laughed and delivered a series of huge chops to the chest of Sullivan that you could hear from anywhere in the arena. Show stopped chopping down the tree that is Sullivan, and Sullivan staggered from the corner, but still stayed on his feet. Show seemed slightly impressed with the toughness of the rookie, but it didn't matter, Show grabbed Sullivan by the throat for a chokeslam! Show tried to lift Sullivan up for a chokeslam but Sullivan battled out of it, delivering shots to the head of Show. Show stumbled backwards but shook it off and charged at Sullivan, Sullivan was prepared and delivered a huge big boot to the face of Show, taking the veteran down. Sullivan smacked himself in the head a few times, getting angrier every time, as Show got himself to his feet. Show called for Sullivan to bring it, and the two men began trading shots! Show got the better of the situation, but Sullivan ducked a right hand and scooped Show off his feet! Sullivan held Show in the air for a second, and let out an angry yell, before slamming the former World Champion to the mat. Sullivan laughed and pulled Show to his feet by his beard, slapped him in the face and scoop slammed him again!! The crowd sat in stunned silence at Sullivan climbed to the top rope and leapt onto Show for a diving splash and the win.

    Sullivan beat his chest and threw an arm up in the air in celebration, as the commentary team commented that if Sullivan is added to the rumble match at Takeover Philadelphia, who will be able to stop him?

    William Regal watched Lars Sullivan celebrate his win on a backstage monitor as NXT Women's Champion Emma approached, followed closely by Dana Brooke. Emma asked why Regal had requested she appear tonight? Regal looked disgusted with the question and said that Emma is the Women's Champion and should be at every show, defending her championship and showing that she deserves to wear it. Emma looked equally disgusted and said that no one on the NXT women's roster is in her league, and no one deserves the championship more than her! Regal smiled and turned his attention to Brooke, and said he was glad she came too, as he wanted to inform her that next week she would be taking on Emma's Takeover opponent one on one. Before Brooke could say anything, Emma said she doesn't have a Takeover opponent. Regal continued smiling and said that two weeks ago Emma was pinned by Ruby Riot, and he doesn't know what Emma thought, but that makes Riot number one contender and at Takeover Philadelphia, she will challenge Emma for the NXT Women's Championship! Regal walked off as Emma screamed that Riot never beat her!

    The former NXT Tag Team Champions The Authors Of Pain made their way to the ring with Paul Ellering. As Akam and Rezar stormed back and forth in the ring, Ellering began to speak. Ellering said that no matter what anyone says, AOP are still undefeated and they are still the most dominant tag team in wrestling. Ellering said that neither member of AOP has been pinned, or submitted and it will always be that way. He went on to say that TM61 wants to show that their win of the NXT Tag Team Championships was not a fluke, that they deserve to be at the top of the tag team mountain here in NXT. Ellering said that if TM61 are prepared to lose their championships so quickly, he talked to William Regal and the Authors will gladly retake them at Takeover Philadelphia. The fans erupted as TM61 appeared on the ring apron, not waiting for Takeover! Ellering got out of the ring, as Akam and Rezar prepared for war! AOP charged at TM61, who springboarded off the top rope and over AOP, landing in the center of the ring, ran at the opposite side of the ring for momentum and charged at AOP, delivering huge dropkicks, knocking the former champions out of the ring! AOP screamed in anger and charged back at the ring, but Ellering stopped them. Shane Thorne and Nick Miller called on the former champions, showing no fear of their bigger opponents. Ellering held the Authors back, and spoke into his microphone, saying that Thorne and Miller didn't let him finish, at Takeover Philidelphia, there will be no question who deserves to be Tag Team Champions, only one team will walk out of Philadelphia, only one team will be left standing, because their match, will be a LAST TEAM STANDING MATCH! Akam and Rezar nod in approval, as the champions Miller and Thorne seem taken back in the ring.

    The second match of the night saw Mandy Rose taking on Aliyah. Aliyah started off the match strong, as she tackled Rose to the ground and hit her with a series of strikes and rest holds but Rose was determined to make an impact in her return. Rose fought her way to her feet, and delivering a series of brutal elbow strikes to Aliyah's head. Aliyah tried to regroup but got hit with a boot to the stomach, and Rose hit her finisher, "Angel's Wings", for the win.

    A video aired. The video showed the hooded man from the previous videos walking down a long hallway, the walls were pure white, with no doors except for one right at the end. As he made his way down the hallway muffled chants could be heard. As he reached the end of the hallway he looked at the door, sizing it up as the chants became clear, NXT NXT NXT. The man took a step back and then kicked the door open as a bright light took over the screen and Mauro Ranallo's voice from a previous event could be heard screaming OH MY GOD! The light faded to black and the words "He's Coming" appeared.

    Cathy Kelley was standing backstage with Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder, The Revival. She asked how it felt being here in NXT for a few weeks, and how they feel going into their match tonight against Kalisto and Gran Metalik? Dawson said that it always feels good to be back where it all started, NXT. Wilder agreed and said that tonight they are going to beat The Revoluchas, and go on to....he was cut off by Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly approaching. Fish smiled and said that he does sincerely hope that The Revival wins tonight, because there will be nothing more satisfying, than beating the two time NXT Tag Team Champions in the next round. Dawson got right in Fish's face and told him to make sure he takes notes during the match tonight, he is going to need them.

    The third match of the night saw SAnitY's Alexander Wolfe taking on Aleister Black. Wolfe tried to attack Black, charging at him first thing. Black ducked the attack and delivered a series of kicks to the body and legs of Wolfe. Wolfe tried to fight back but got hit with a violent "Black Mass" kick that dropped him immediately. Eric Young and Killian Dain sprinted to the ring from the backstage area but Black turned around, sensing the attack, stopping Dain and Young in their tracks as they watched on from the bottom of the entrance way. Black turned back to Wolfe, and lifted him to his feet, using only his foot, and delivered another "Black Mass" for the win.

    Black sat down in the center of the ring and looked out at Young and Dain, waiting for the attack that never came, as Dain pulled Wolfe from the ring and carried him on his shoulder. As Young pulled his own hair out in anger, Black held up one finger, signaling that Wolfe was only the first.

    Joe Hendry and Pete Dunne were standing backstage, Hendry was demanding a match with Dunne, saying that Dunne cost him the fatal four way number one contender match. Dunne didn't seem to want to hear any of it, saying that Hendry is not worthy of the United Kingdom Championship and that is why he is not the number one contender. Hendry seemed infuriated and said that if Dunne was a man, he would accept the challenge. Dunne seemed offended by that comment and said that as soon as he beats Jordan Devlin, Hendry will be next on the list of people who have failed in an attempt to take the United Kingdom Championship away from him.

    Renee Young, Dustin Rhodes and Mauro Ranallo discussed the two huge Takeover Philadelphia announcements, the NXT Women's Championship will be on the line as Emma defends against Ruby Riot, and the NXT Tag Team Championships will be on the line as TM61 defend against The Authors Of Pain in a Last Team Standing Match! Rhodes said that he was happy when TM61 won the championships, but there is no way they are leaving Takeover with the gold. Young said that next week live from Indianapolis, Ruby Riot will go one on one with Dana Brooke, but she just received word that the punishment for the chaos that took place during last weeks contact signing will continue as The NXT Champion
    Roderick Strongwill be forced to team with his long time rival, the former champion Bobby Roode as they take on SAnitY's Eric Young and Killian Dain!


    The main event of the night was the final match in the second round of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Kalisto and Gran Metalik taking on The Revival. Metalik and Kalisto were accompanied to the ring by Lince Dorado, as Kalisto carried the Cruiserweight Championship in one hand, and the mask of his former tag team partner Sin Cara in the other. Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson looked to continue their success in the tournament, taking the fight to The Revolucha's quickly, isolating Metalik in their corner as the Cruiserweight Champion was forced to watch on from his corner. Metalik managed to make the tag, and the two teams battled back and forth, neither wanting to be eliminated from the tournament. Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly made their way onto the stage towards the end of the match, their eyes locked on the ring. Dawson hit a huge elbow to the back of the knee of Metalik, as Dawson stood up, Kalisto leapt off the top rope onto him. Wilder got in the ring and the four men battled in the center of the ring. Dash hit an huge knee to the face of Kalisto, knocking the Cruiserweight Champion out of the ring. Metalik took his eyes off Wilder for only a second to glance as the fallen champion, but it was enough time, he turned back and was hit with a "Shatter Machine" from the only two time NXT Tag Team Champions. Dawson dove on top of Metalik for the three count and the win.

    As Dorado helped his fallen brothers to their feet on the outside, The Revival celebrated in the ring. Fish and O'Reilly watched from the top of the stage and motioned that The Revival's wins are coming to an end.

    Re: NXT

    NXT REVIEW

    Sullivan just dominated The Big Show. Either he wins the Rumble or someone makes a name for themselves taking him out.

    Yeah I'm going to assume Tommaso Ciampa is coming, and I'm pretty excited for that.

    Emma to face Ruby Riot makes sense. Emma surely retains here. I'm still leaning towards Kairi Sane being the one who dethrones her. Mandy Rose also getting some exposure and having seen her on Raw in reality I do like her range of offence, be interesting to see if she gets a mini push down the line.

    Last Team Standing is a cool idea. I see this as a huge opportunity to put TM61 over with AoP seemingly at an advantage due to their sheer size compared to Thorne and Miller. AoP can disappear to the main roster after this and TM61 can battle the Dusty Classic winners at Takeover Mania. win-win all around.

    Good to see Aleister Black batter Killian Dain and love that he is setting his sights on destroying Sanity. Keen to see where this goes and whether Black has a big part to play at Takeover.

    Definitely an interesting plot brewing between ReDragon and The Revival. That match is one worthy of the final but for me I have got to side with ReDragon. The Revival, as great as they have been, have had their big moment in NXT and the idea of ReDragon versus Bate/Seven makes the final feel a lot less predictable as I can't see The Revival winning it, and I'm not too keen on seeing The Fallen Ones win either. Hoping for both semi-finals to take place next week so that we get some build to the final on the final NXT before Takeover.

    Overall another big show and I'm excited for Takeover. I'm hopeful that you can spring a few surprises like the last NXT because a few things look pretty nailed on at the moment.

    NXT Episode 22 Preview
    January 17th 2018
    Indianapolis, Indiana


    ​With Takeover Philadelphia looming, NXT kicks it up a notch with NXT General Manager William Regal taking to the WWE Facebook page in a live video earlier today to let the NXT universe know exactly what to expect when the superstars of NXT roll into Indianapolis, Indiana tonight at 8/7c only on the WWE Network.

    Bitter Rivals Unite?
    Two weeks ago on NXT all hell broke loose during the contract signing for the NXT Championship Triple Threat Match. NXT General Manager William Regal tried to maintain order but Alexander Wolfe, and Killian Dain made their way to the ring and attempted to help Eric Young get the upper hand against his opponents at Takeover Philadelphia, NXT Champion Roderick Strong and Bobby Roode. William Regal let the men involved know that he is tired of the chaos that has reigned over his show in recent weeks. Last week, Alexander Wolfe was forced to take on Aleister Black. This week, Bobby Roode and Roderick Strong, two men who cannot stand each other, are being forced to team together against SAnitY members Killian Dain and Eric Young. If that wasn't enough, the General Manager has announced that if SAnitY does not win, Eric Young will be removed from the NXT Championship Match at Takeover Philadelphia!

    The Upper hand.
    Ruby Riot returned on November 29th, almost two full months after being injured by Emma and Dana Brooke during a Women's Invitational Battle Royal. She wasted no time letting Emma know her intentions were revenge, and the NXT Women's Championship that is around the waist of the Australian. Fast forward to December 27th, Riot managed to get a pinfall victory over the champion in a six women tag team match. William Regal named Riot the number one contender and she will challenge Emma for the Championship at Takeover Philadelphia. Tonight Riot will take on Emma's friend Dana Brooke, as Brooke looks to make sure Riot doesn't make it to her Championship opportunity.

    The Semi Finals.
    William Regal said that NXT this week would be a tag team extravaganza, announcing that both Semi Final matches in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic would take place!

    The former NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival returned to NXT to accomplish the only thing left for them to do in NXT, win the Dusty Classic. With wins over The Rough Brothers and The Revoluchas, Dash and Dawson will look to continue their success and go onto the Finals at Takeover Philadelphia. In there way, the new team of Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly. Fish and O'Reilly burst onto the scene, and impressively competed in their Qualifying and Quarter Final round matches back to back, knocking off the team of No Way Jose and Rich Swann, and The Street Profits in the same night. Fish and O'Reilly have made it clear they are just getting started, and they look to prove it when they take on the NXT Veterans Dash and Dawson.

    The Fallen Ones, Gabriel and Uriel Ealy have been on a roll since the late summer, leaving a path of destruction through the NXT Tag Team Division. They were scheduled to take on the NXT Tag Team Champions TM61 in the Qualifying Round, but when the Tag Team Champions were ambushed by The Authors Of Pain, The Fallen Ones were left without opponents. William Regal made the decision to let The Fallen Ones move onto the Quarter Finals without qualifying, where they took down Heavy Machinery. The Fallen Ones have been undefeated since the second half of 2017, will they advance to the finals? Directly in their path, the former United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate, and his tag team partner Trent Seven. Bate and Seven have had great success so far in the tournament, defeating Drew Gulak and Tony Nese from 205 Live, as well as the longest reigning NXT Tag Team Champions The Ascension. With one more team standing between the UK competitors and the finals, how will they fair against the unstoppable Fallen Ones?

    All this and more as NXT rolls into Indianapolis Indiana and the road to Takeover Philadelphia continues, live on the WWE Network.

    Re: NXT

    So, I’ve finally got caught up. I’m not a huge lover of recapped shows in general, but I’ve really enjoyed this format you’ve gone for. Just going to give you some comments on the things that have stood out the most to me thus far;

    First off; the tag division. I’m pleased you’re building a strong raft of teams, and the hype you gave to the Dusty Classic before kicking it off was tremendous. Really made the tournament feel much more special and something worth trying to win.

    That said though, there’s two that stick out in a negative sense to me at this point in time. The Sabatelli/Moss team feel miscast as faces. Tino to me, screams heel. Maybe that’s a direction you’re planning on long term and you’re using this face run as a catalyst for a heel turn, but right now, they don’t feel right as faces. Alongside them, Blake & Cutler feel like they need a mouthpiece or muscle or a gimmick of some sort, as they just don’t interest me much right now. Wouldn’t be a big problem if they were just a jobber team boosting the division, but they’ve been featured regularly enough to make me think you’re high on them.

    I was impressed with how you dealt with Asukas move to the main roster and the Womens title predicament it created. Regal coming to No Mercy to confront Asuka made the championship feel a lot more important, and her not dropping the belt in the end, but being stripped makes me wonder if you’ll eventually bring her back down for a big Takeover match with Emma down the road. You’ve also done a solid job in building the womens division back up, building up Sonya Deville and bringing in Kairi Sane. Her rivalry with Tessa has been great, with Regal reluctant to give Tessa a contract being a great little side angle to this, and making Tessa stand out right away from the crowd with this type of introduction to the show. That’s a great match for Takeover too. Probably the angle I’ve enjoyed most in the thread tbh.

    Speaking of Emma, I’ve liked the majority of the roster changes, and the arrivals back in NXT. Chad Gable, Enzo, Emma, Dana, Bennett all feel like much bigger deals on NXT than the main roster - especially Bennett. He feels like he matters here with Maria, as opposed to being nothing on the main roster. That move was a great idea.

    Little disappointed that Gable & Gargano ended up feuding as opposed to teaming up, as that would’ve been a great tandem, but hey, the matches would be spectacular. Both are so good in the ring, their matches should be electric - and that 2/3 Falls match looked great.

    Special mention to the build you gave the return of Enzo, felt like a HUGE deal after the weeks of promos. Didn’t expect RVD to welcome him back to NXT, and was caught by surprise by the subtle heel turn. There’s definitely going to be another go-around with RVD after mocking the thumb taunt and the “YouTube” videos. Disappointing that you didn’t give more details on Enzo‘s promos that aired off TV and on YouTube tbh.

    I love seeing people build up unstoppable monsters, so you can be sure I’ve been digging your work with Lars Sullivan. Him attacking RVD is a huge move, and hopefully, you’ll use RVD as a stepping stone to put Lars over even bigger. Bringing in Big Show wasn’t something I liked as much. As anything after this feels less impressive. If he can put away Big Show, realistically, it doesn’t feel like such an accomplishment to knock off RVD next. That, to me, felt like it should’ve been saved for a WrestleMania weekend Takeover - or at the very least, build it for a week or two on NXT, rather than give it away as a surprise opponent. Felt like a waste of a career defining moment for Sullivan.

    Glad you’ve been making use of the 205 Live & UK Championship guys from time to time too, helping beef up the Dusty Classic. Also, I love the idea of a NXT Royal Rumble. May be looked at as overkill, happening the night before the actual Royal Rumble, but I wouldn’t begrudge anyone booking a Rumble in their thread. My favourite match of the year, every year.

    Roderick Strong as the guy to end Roodes run as champion felt a little underwhelming to me. Strong just doesn’t interest me a whole lot tbh, and I’d have preferred Roode to be brought down by a bigger character, or the ultimate baby face on the roster, that‘s universally loved by everyone; Johnny Gargano.

    That said, you booked that whole angle leading into Takeover: Houston pretty darn well imo, to the point where Strong HAD to win, and he did. I think the other thing that isn’t helping is that I’ve never been into the Sanity stable either, which means right now I’m not into what should be the biggest program in the thread - which I should be, considering it’s over the NXT Title. It should feel like the most important part of the show every week … but I’m just not getting that feeling, especially with the way the triple threat came about.

    Just feels to me like there’s bigger acts on the show that should be battling over the main title like Mike Bennett - who, again, feels like a much bigger deal since coming to NXT. And I don’t get why he’s still feuding with Ohno after the November Takeover. As someone else pointed out, he either beats Ohno again which pretty much buries Ohno, or loses his momentum by losing to Ohno.

    I feel I’ve been a little over critical here - I didn’t mean to be, I have honestly really enjoyed reading through this and catching up on what’s been happening from the beginning of this thread over the last week or two. My main concerns are just that the feuds over the NXT titles feel underwhelming; Emma vs. Riot has been overshadowed by Kairi vs. Tessa and TM61 as champions have been overshadowed by the Dusty Classic going on around them. Hopefully once you get past Takeover, the title feuds can have more prominence and feel more meaningful.

    Overall though - as I said already; I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading through this. It’s been fun, and I’ll be sure to drop in more regularly.

    Re: NXT

    Just played catch up and as usual, things are going along pretty well here. Looking at the match card for the next show and things are looking pretty damn good, as each match should be great. The only real points I have are the following:

    One thing I don't like is Regal announcing that if Sanity lose tonight, Young is out of the title match. It just seems like the stipulation is there for the sake of it, and for no real reason. It doesn't feel like has been built towards or anything, which is a bit disappointing. The match itself though should be fantastic.

    Dusty Rhodes Classic is a highlight however TM61 deciding to drop out devalued the tournament a bit if I'm honest.

    Still, a very fun/easy thread to read which constantly has enjoyable shows. This was more just basic comments on the preview, but I'll try and leave some more detailed comments on some actual shows later on.

    For the last half of 2017, I was going strong with this thread and suddenly hit a wall. Was never really sure what happened but I just lost the drive. Could be because when I started the thread I stopped watch real NXT to not let it effect my product but who knows. Recently went back and watched half a years worth of NXT and my drive instantly came back. Always felt like I had unfinished business here with NXT so I felt like the right time to bring it back. Quick resulted the last two weeks before Takeover so I can come back strong. For anyone who hasn't seen this thread before, hope you enjoy my take on the NXT world, feel free to read the last couple shows to get caught up if you want. For anyone who was reading before, thank you for your continued support.

    Hope you enjoy.
