NXT – June 14, 2017: A Reward for the Investment

NXT Date: June 14, 2017 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Nigel McGuinness, Tom Phillips, Percy Watson It’s title week on NXT as Asuka is defending the Women’s Title against Ruby Riot and Nikki Cross in an elimination match. This still feels like a way to set up the returning Ember Moon as […]

NXT – June 6, 2017: Good to Have You Back

NXT Date: June 7, 2017 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Percy Watson, Tom Phillips, Nigel McGuinness Tonight is, in theory at least, all about Bobby Roode, who promised to show up for a Championship Celebration. Then again he said the same thing last week and had more important things to do. Teasing […]

NXT – May 31, 2017: Are They Always This Annoying?

NXT Date: May 31, 2017 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Percy Watson, Nigel McGuinness, Tom Phillips We’re back in Orlando for the first in a series of shows that isn’t likely to build towards a Takeover. After last week’s stand alone show from Chicago, tonight we’re scheduled to see the Glorious Celebration […]

NXT – May 24, 2017: The Chicago Dream

NXT Date: May 24, 2017 Location: Allstate Arena, Chicago, Illinois Commentators: Percy Watson, Nigel McGuinness, Tom Phillips This is one of those cool down shows that was taped before Takeover started off. In other words we’re in for a night of quick matches with a bunch of interviews and recaps being used to fill in […]

NXT Takeover – Chicago: It Worked Before And It Works Again

Takeover: Chicago Date: May 20, 2017 Location: Allstate Arena, Chicago, Illinois Commentators: Nigel McGuinness, Tom Phillips, Percy Watson How did we not get here before? If there’s one town that seems perfect for one of these things, it’s Chicago. We have a five match card here and thanks to the addition of the United Kingdom […]

Took in the NXT House Show Tonight

I took in the NXT house show tonight in Highland Heights, Kentucky (basically Cincinnati) at the BB&T Arena on the campus of Northern Kentucky University. NXT was at this same arena about nine months ago and they’re already back, though after how things went tonight, I don’t know if there’s going to be a third […]

NXT – May 17, 2017: Watch Your Step

NXT Date: May 17, 2017 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Percy Watson, Nigel McGuinness, Tom Phillips It’s the go home show for Takeover: Chicago and that should mean a hard sell towards the show. The card currently has four matches, which is one below the norm for most of the Takeover specials. […]

NXT Date: May 10, 2017 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Percy Watson, Tom Phillips, Nigel McGuinness With ten days to go until Takeover: Chicago, it’s time to crown a new #1 contender to the NXT Title. Tonight we have Hideo Itami facing Roderick Strong for the shot at Bobby Roode in Chicago. […]

NXT – May 3, 2017: What Do You Get When You Cross A Ruby With A Moon?

NXT Date: May 3, 2017 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Percy Watson, Tom Phillips, Nigel McGuinness We’re rapidly approaching Takeover: Chicago and that means we need to fill in a lot of the card. As luck would have it, a major development is going to take place tonight as we have a […]

NXT Date: April 26, 2017 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators; Nigel McGuinness, Percy Watson, Tom Phillips The British are here tonight as the big featured match will see WWE UK Champion Tyler Bate defending against Jack Gallagher. I like the idea of throwing those guys out there for some filler as it […]
