    WWE NXT WWE NXT Discussion: May 10th, 2018



    WWE NXT preview, May 9, 2018: Ohno aims to avenge Gargano against Ciampa
    Kassius Ohno stated that someone has to make Tommaso Ciampa feel the same helplessness that Johnny Gargano felt after suffering the psychotic Blackheart’s latest attack. The Knockout Artist believes he is up to the challenge.

    Ohno, who had traveled the roads with both Gargano and Ciampa for years, was by Johnny Wrestling’s side when he was loaded into the ambulance on April 25. The striking specialist will now attempt to avenge Gargano by silencing and punishing Ciampa on NXT tonight. Will Ohno’s plan for payback succeed?


    Will The War Raiders leave Heavy Machinery in a heap?
    Following their chaotic debut several weeks ago on WWE NXT, The War Raiders will throw down with one of the teams they targeted that fateful first night, Heavy Machinery. The ring will hopefully be reinforced as these two gargantuan units — tipping the scales at a total combined weight of more than half a ton — collide in a tag team battle of epic proportions.

    Will Otis Dozovic & Tucker Knight have any answers for the surging Hanson & Rowe? Or will the newcomers’ raid continue at Heavy Machinery’s expense? Find out tonight on NXT!


    EC3 looks to build momentum against Raul Mendoza
    The Top One Percent impressed mightily in his debut in the NXT North American Title Six-Man Ladder Match at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans. Though he fell short of becoming the inaugural NXT North American Champion, the powerhouse caught the attention of the entire NXT Universe. EC3 will aim to dismantle the tough-as-nails Mendoza, but will the entitled Superstar come into the contest a little too overconfident for his own good, allowing the underdog Mendoza the to knock him down a peg?

    main looks great, excited to see Ciampa again.

    One of the better episodes since New Orleans. So far I am completely sold on the next chapter of Gargano/Ciampa. Great match with Ohno, and the fairytale is over!

    Fuck you Ed because Heavy Machinery vs War Raiders ruled because of both teams. What a short fun HOSS festival.

    I’m not the biggest Ricochet guy but I’ll buy into a feud with Dream. Also EC3 is a great personality, I like Raul Mendoza for some reason, and Oney/Burch/Dunne vs Undisputed should rule.

    Only thing I hated on the show? Surprise surprise, the Baszler/Kai stuff. Holy shit, all of this sucks. Seeing Nikki Cross is hopefully a positive sign and we end this nonsense.

    I think I might be in the minority who actually likes the Shayna/dakota story. In the aspect that it seems like it's a slow build to kai being the one to take that belt from her months down the line. As she grows more confident and less afraid of the brutish champ who injured her previously. Plus dakota is pretty awesome. In the meantime I'm down for nikki vs Shayna.

    Didn't like the opening segment. Went on far too long and it wasn't very compelling. A five minute segment would've been much better.

    Everything else was forgettable up until the Ciampa vs Ohno match was very good. Ohno was great, loved his work over Ciampa's eye.

    It’s booking a bad face, imo. It just feels dumb to have your face cower in fear instead of want revenge and if she’s so traumatized by confronting your enemies then why are you still wrestling like everything’s okay? Plus it goes back to what I talked about last week where it doesn’t feel like you’re planting the seeds for a slow build. It just feels like these are “supporting characters” and I can’t buy into them being serious pieces of the division.

    Kai’s wrestling is fine. Her acting sucks and this program sucks.

    I can understand where you are coming from. But for me it feels more a case like the gargano/ciampa situation. In the aspect that Johnny was fine wrestling but all it took was a reminder of ciampa to really throw him off his game. That story was definitely a lot more organic though. But that's what they are going with seemingly that dakota is fine until she sees or hears about Shayna. I agree though her acting isn't that great atm but the good thing is. Now is the time for her to improve

    Ricochet isn't the greatest promo in the world but he wasn't thrown by the crowd and he bounced of Dream really well. I can into this.

    I enjoyed Mendoza/EC3 and I'm glad it was short because a) Mendoza shouldn't be causing major issues for EC3 at this stage in his run and b) EC3 seems to have a pretty limited moveset and is more about character and bumping his ass off for his opponents to make the face look good, which isn't gonna help him in these types of squash matches that are used to build him up.

    I'm a little worried that Burch and Lorcan are a short term partnership for Dunne and it's leading towards a British Strong Style team up... which would be great if that unit didn't have a man down to injury right now. Hopefully that trade off (if that is what they're building towards) hasn't been filmed yet, because it'll be a bitch to book them out of it after the fact.

    Heavy Machinery and War Raiders was a fun HOSS sprint but I wonder what's next for both teams? This was a pretty definitive finish in Raider favour and I don't see them going back to it soon. With Undisputed busy facing Dunne and co. it's really exposing how small the tag division is right now and how lacking in heels it is; they probably shouldn't have split Riddick and Tino, if that's what they did, who knows with those two.

    I can understand why people don't like the Kai/Baszler stuff but it's growing on me. The progression has been a little all over the shop but I loved a lot about this week and I definitely see the parallels Shade pointed out between this and the Gargano stuff while Ciampa was out. I could see Kai ending up as Shayna's lackey for a little while before she woman's up and takes the title from her.

    Ciampa walking out to no music and just a chorus of crowd taunts, booing and people yelling about how much they hate him is beautiful. Ziggler's record scratch was already laughable but this makes it look even goofier by comparison. It's such a shame that I find it so difficult to give a shit about anything Ohno is involved with because this ended up being a really good match but it took ages for me to get into. It's probably my favourite Ohno match since his return too. Ciampa is an amazing heel.

    Re: WWE NXT Discussion: May 10th, 2018

    - You can tell it's a lively crowd when they're chanting for Ricochet's sockless loafers to the point where the dude acknowledges it to a solid pop.

    I dug the Dream/Ricochet talkoff more than I thought I would. Helped that the two traded barbs back and forth instead of taking turns to recite one paragraph each before dissolving into blows. Ricochet never really seemed like a solid promo from what I've seen on LU but he did better than expected, and Dream, unf. Perfect. I am so, so much in to a Dream/Ricochet feud like nothing else. Give him a 10 - 15 minute Ricochet/Dream match on Takeover, or even just a NXT Main Event, and I'll be delighted.

    - EC3 debut was alright for what it was, dug the finisher and the egotistical pin. Dude's solid on the mic though.

    - Oney Lorcan: You know you're a piece of garbage, right?
    Pete Dunne: *casual shrug*

    If there's any summarization of Pete Dunne as a character, that was it.

    - Dakota Kai <3

    Okay, so, like - I'm not against the whole... Dakaota Kai having PTSD and fear at the sight of Shanya Baszler, I mean I'm sure if someone snapped my arm like a twig to make a point to someone else I'd avoid them, trained fighter or not, and it's a nice character trait that helps her be human moreso than usual and has the potential to be a neat little character arc, but I thought we made progress with Dakota running in to kick Shanya off of Ember Moon that one time. That happened, right? Now seems like a step back, although it can be explained that with Ember Moon getting called up, there's no Hero Watchdog in the women's locker room to inspire Dakota Kai to overcome her fear when it matters. Actually, come to think of it, I like that idea, that the locker room is ever changing, that it shifts and ebbs and flows whenever there's a callup and without a Locker Room Leader like Ember, there's no-one to inspire the likes of Dakota Kai to act against her fears. Unless, say, Nikki Cross takes her under her wing and inspires chaos in her wake. I think I just talked myself into liking this direction.

    - Two heavy thumbs down to Heavy Machinery getting jobbed out in like three minutes to an act straight out of the 80's. Waste of a solid Hoss Battle. Figures. Can't bring in the Hot Indy Act without flushing the Promising Developmental Talent down the drain. Like, this isn't even me being bummed Heavy Machinery lost, I'm disappointed that it only went for three minutes when there was a story attached to it that could've given it more meaning instead of just being another quick win for War... Raiders? Machine? Fuck it they look like a worse version of Ascension so War Ascension will do. Why even bother having Heavy Machinery specifically call out War Ascension in revenge for their attack if it'll be a three-minute nothing match? Hell I think the Metro Brothers lasted longer against War Ascension than Heavy Machinery did. Waste of a story, waste of a Hoss Fight, War Ascension are fine, if aesthetically awful, and Heavy Machinery deserve better.

    - Now I know why Tommaso had villainous eyetape last week, dude's eye is fuuuucked. With the bruised eye, the knee brace, and the blood patch on his thigh, the dude looks like he's been through a shredder and the experience has only made him more pissed.

    Great main event. I dug Kassius Ohno stooping to Tommaso's low by exposing the knee, and that everyone was okay with it because he's up against Ciampa.

    I have had enough of the grown man dork fan who is trying to get his shit over who sits/stands in the corner of the ring where most people use the steps to get into the ring. You know the one, the guy who fanned himself as Velveteen walked passed him, got hyped with Dozer and screamed YOU SUCK, I HATE YOU at Ciampa.


    Thought it was a fun episode. I'm higher on the Ricochet/Dream promo exchange than most it would appear. I thought Ricochet brushed off the no socks thing well to get a laugh, but not let it distract the whole segment and Dream was Dream when he came out, an absolute star.

    I don't think Kai acted badly, she's conveying the right sort of emotions in her face and body language for this PTSD storyline. I can't get fully into it because it feels like they're sacrificing Kai's credibility to get Shayna over as a heel, although there's every chance with this Full Sail crowd that it'll make Kai even more sympathetic and even more of a babyface so who knows.

    It's hardly surprising Punk Wolf isn't high on War Raiders because to wrestling fans who have never seen them before they come off as a corny cosplay team that have the same vibe as Bludgeon Brothers only they're babyfaces so it doesn't land as well.

    Ciampa/Ohno was real good, Ohno's best match all year (that hasn't dropped yet #SSS16)

    This guy in the Bret Hart shirt. Can't believe you've never noticed him, look out for him next week. He first popped up when the Street Profits started getting over and he'd be in their videos all the time (20 seconds into video), but he seems to be in this spot all the time now and being a 'too into it' fan looking for attention

    I mean, you're probably right. I didn't really give them much of a chance after being bummed at how short the match was, so I went and re-watched it. They ain't bad, really, they've got a good tag finisher, I popped for Hanson's suicide dive, and they know what they're doing. I still wish Heavy Machinery didn't get such a short end of the stick but it'll be nice to have another flavor in the slimming tag division.
