I think if you watch NXT completely out of context with no story or character stuff at all it's probably the greatest wrestling show on planet earth.
Also, don't forget to put it on mute. People always complain about the shaky camera but the big dive to the outside and "NXT rolls on!" before commercial bothers me way more. Actually, I've heard Wade Barrett is very good on commentary. Not surprising, he was always a good talker.
My biggest problem with NXT and the reason I stopped watching it is that I got sick of saying, "I can't wait for X to go to the main roster and turn everything around." Which eventually turned into, "oh god, when X goes to the main roster, I wonder how bad Vince messes them up."
@devise22: The Observer awards are voted on by the readers. Not sure if you were aware of that by your post. Apparently, Dave has been dealing with WWE hardcores and trolls all day on Twitter. I honestly don't get why he feels he has to engage those people.
Really good Dynamite. Curious where Pac went; it didn't quite hit me until this week how strange the Archer face turn is. And Omega came off as a huge star and a fitting champion. He and Callis are a great duo.
Only big knock is there was WAY too much going on for one show.
I think it's part of the strategy to continue onboarding new viewers from last week. You do a big event and get people talking and then keep the buzz going to normalize the product and unfamiliar characters in people's minds.
I'm guessing it was Pac that was originally scheduled to face Moxley for the title at Full Gear, seeing as how he showed up immediately after the PPV. His trip probably got delayed a few weeks or something.
