    WWE NXT WWE NXT Discussion - March 17, 2021

    WWE NXT Preview
    March 17, 2021



    LA Knight makes his in-ring debut tonight on NXT

    The highly anticipated in-ring debut of LA Knight is finally upon us.

    One of the hottest recent free agent signings in wrestling will hit the ring this Wednesday night on NXT for his first action, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.

    If Knight has made one thing clear since he arrived on the black-and-gold brand, it’s that he marches to the beat of his own drum and no one else’s.

    But Knight has already made at least one enemy. After costing Bronson Reed a bout against Cameron Grimes earlier this month, the Colossal Superstar nearly came to blows with Knight last week.

    What will we see from Knight when he finally steps in the ring? And will Reed be keeping a close eye on the action?

    Dexter Lumis to square off with Austin Theory

    When Dexter Lumis abducted Austin Theory last month, that wasn’t even the most heinous thing NXT’s Tortured Artist did to “All Day,” at least from Theory’s perspective.

    No, that distinction was earned by Lumis making disparaging remarks regarding Theory’s “abdominal region,” at least according to NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano.

    Theory will get a chance to get back at his captor this Wednesday night when he goes one on one with Lumis.

    Lumis has been a thorn in the side of The Way for weeks, even pinning Gargano in a singles contest.

    Will Lumis land another significant blow against The Way? Or will Theory score some six-pack payback?

    Tune in to NXT this Wednesday night at 8/7 C on USA Network to see what unfolds!

    WALTER showed up tonight and attacked Ciampa. I think he's working the mania weekend Takeover probably against Ciampa, or some kind of Ciampa/Thatcher tag team match

    I agree that Dexter Lumis is pretty fucking terrible, but I'll still take him over Karrion Kross and Scarlett every night. I still find them to be absolutely the worst thing in NXT. So carny, so dumb. I just don't understand why anyone likes them.

    It's not even like Kross is a great wrestler. I don't think he's a bad wrestler by any means, just standard. I honestly think a lot of the male fans just like them because Scarlett is drop dead gorgeous.

    Kross is okay, I'd say I have a favorable opinion of him, but it's definitely Scarlett that makes his act work as well for most fans as it does.

    I am definitely on the Lumis hate train as well though. Can't say I find anything positive about his character or in-ring work personally.

    When he first debuted, I did enjoy that Kross' matches were a lot shorter than other stuff on Takeovers and he had the most tolerable match with Ciampa that daddys home had in ages. However, the tone of the act is all off, all the theatrics of the entrance and Scarlett being some fucking demon witch of some kind doesn't match up with Kross' look and wrestling style and like Zoom says, everything is corny. Ironically he's in a program against Balor who has found the best work of his career leaving that Demon crap behind him and being a serious act having good matches.

    Dexter Lumis has been apart of one of the all time great rosters ever assembled for about 2 years now and hasn't had a good match in that time. He's a JAG who can stare at people.

    Why does every WWE championship storyline involve them going for the tag titles? That angle has run dry, and to be honest has never been compelling.
