So yeah, is it weird that basically NXT is better than anything the WWE as got going right now? I tried watching Raw but its doing nothing for me. The roster alone is so much more entertaining to, Enzo Amore is crazy and you got to love that, Sami Zayn is a blast to watch (especially that jump between the corners ropes), Tyson Kidd we know can produce it when he wants to and even Tyler Breeze is entertaining.
Not sure what it says for the WWE's current "big" shows, not a whole lot I suspect.
All it really says is that the people behind the scenes (creative, camera crew, even commentary) in NXT are just way better - or at least way less micromanaged by Vince and his group of old and out of touch friends - than the main WWE shows.
@meatball: Yeah, yeah, yeah, everyone hates The Ascension. But then again, who was championing Bo Dallas before he debuted on Raw? And now everyone likes his corny gimmick. Just wait for the vignettes and the Raw production team to start building them up for their debut. It will be interesting to see everyone's opinion of them then.
Plenty were championing Bo before he debuted on Raw, basically the minute he started doing his "heel that thinks he's a face" schtick it was gold.
You do have a point about the Raw production team, though, I'm sure they'll do cool things with the Ascension's gimmick.
Also, to add to this, a lot of the hate for The Ascension comes from the fact that they've literally done nothing in the year that they've been champions. For their entire reign they did nothing but 1 minute squashes against NXT's random CAW generator. Going by how the tag division has barely existed on the main shows recently I don't see much of a difference in their direction coming around unless something changes in the tag booking.
