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 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 […]

Takeover: Chicago Preview

When I heard about “Takeover: Chicago” taking place only about six weeks after “Takeover: Orlando”, I wasn’t all that thrilled with the concept. These shows work best when they have time to be built up instead of rushing things together like this. Then again, the idea of Takeover in Chicago is too much to pass […]

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 […]

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 […]

Takeover: Orlando Preview

Last year, NXT held its first Takeover event during Wrestlemania weekend with the instant classic “Takeover: Dallas”. The show stole the spotlight over Wrestlemania weekend and was pretty easily the best show of the four days, possibly even the year. Now it’s time for round two and as luck would have it, NXT is in […]

NXT – March 22, 2017: They Needed This

NXT Date: March 22, 2017 Location: University Area CDC Gymnasium, Tampa, Florida Commentators: Percy Watson, Nigel McGuinness, Tom Phillips The main roster isn’t the only place where we’re getting ready for a major show. There are only two episodes of NXT left before Takeover: Orlando and that means we need to hammer out the rest […]

NXT – February 8, 2017: Glorious Insanity

NXT Date: February 8, 2017 Location: Full Sail University, Winter Park, Florida Commentators: Percy Watson, Nigel McGuinness, Tom Phillips Tonight is all about Bobby Roode and his GLORIOUS NXT Championship celebration. In other words it’s probably time to find out who we’re going to be seeing as Roode’s first challenger, likely at Takeover: Orlando. I’m […]
