NXT – January 18, 2017: Moving Day Is My Favorite Day

NXT Date: January 18, 2017 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves, Percy Watson It takes an impressive company to make a big story out of a ticket to a show but that’s what NXT has managed to do. Last week Bobby Roode sent NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura his ticket […]

NXT House Show – January 13, 2017: Shaking Hands with Champions

I took in the NXT house show last night at the Broadbent Arena in Louisville, Kentucky. The arena holds 6,600 people but part of it was tarped off and the entire back section of the bleacher seats weren’t sold. The floor seats however were completely full and gave the show a good feeling as the […]

NXT – January 11, 2017: Asuka Cries

NXT Date: January 11, 2017 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Percy Watson, Corey Graves, Tom Phillips We’re back to Full Sail and that means it’s time to hit the gas on the road towards San Antonio. The NXT Title match is already set up but now it’s time to set up the […]

NXT – January 4, 2017: With a Lot of Hitting Him in the Face

NXT Date: January 4, 2017 Location: Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne, Australia Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves We’re back with another special show as it’s another two hour house show, this time from Australia. Again we’ve seen most of the main event but just like last week, we should get to see more than we already […]

NXT – December 28, 2016: A First For NXT

NXT Date: December 28, 2016 Location: Edion Arena, Osaka, Japan Commentators: Corey Graves, Tom Phillips It’s a special week in NXT as we’re closing out the year with a house show taped over in Japan earlier this month. The main event is Shinsuke Nakamura challenging Samoa Joe for the title in a match we saw […]

NXT – December 21, 2016: One For Texas

NXT Date: December 21, 2016 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Percy Watson, Corey Graves, Tom Phillips It’s time to start the build towards “Takeover: San Antonio” as we have a four way elimination match to crown a new #1 contender. Tonight it’s Bobby Roode vs. Andrade Cien Almas vs. Tye Dillinger vs. […]

NXT – December 14, 2016: Reading is the Better Option

NXT Date: December 14, 2016 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Percy Watson, Corey Graves, Tom Phillips It’s another interesting night as we have the four matches to set up the fatal fourway match to determine a #1 contender to the NXT Title. Other than that though we’re heading down to Australia to […]

NXT – December 7, 2016: Around the World

NXT Date: December 7, 2016 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves, Percy Watson This is another interesting show as it’s a combination of the regular taping and the NXT Title match from Osaka, Japan with Shinsuke Nakamura challenging Samoa Joe for the title. It’s also nearly time to start […]

NXT – November 30, 2016: In The Big House

NXT Date: November 30, 2016 Location: Canadian Tire Centre, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves Now this should be interesting as this show was taped on the same night as last week’s Smackdown, meaning they’re in a big arena instead of the tiny Full Sail. I’m always curious to see how things translate […]

NXT – November 23, 2016: Thank You NXT

NXT Date: November 23, 2016 Location: Air Canada Center, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Commentators: Tom Phillips, Corey Graves This is a special episode as we’re past Takeover: Toronto and since there hasn’t been time for a full taping, this show was filmed before Saturday’s show, meaning this is again in a huge arena. Things changed a […]
