mmm when I look at the rosters, I feel like the needs of the rosters aren't really met by what NXT has. Both shows could use more women, but I don't think there's anyone ready unless they just decide to elevate random house show/undercard people like they did Braun.

There's plenty of NXT undercard mainstays they could bring up as jobbers, but they don't have a need for more jobbers. Maybe they send Rich Swann up quick to fill up the Cruiserweight division?

Rich Swann was advertised during RAM, he doesn't count. Or maybe he does and the answer was just really easy. Or maybe Rovert is hinting at a callup coming before September 19th.

Two scoops of bullshit in every rovert post!


I wasn't hinting at anything to be honest. Swann overlaps between NXT and CWC that's all.

I really don't know much about the Cruiserweight division. Whether those in the Division will go on the road full time with WWE or will they work NXT also is a big question to me. Will some still work the indies. Will Ibushi do Japan dates and Raw.

Noam Dar going to Raw directly seems like a bad idea. He needs more time to acclimate to WWE and there's practical matters like needing to learn how to drive in the US.

Didn't Triple H say that the cruiserweights would be on RAW TV but tour with NXT? Or are you referring to NXT TV?

I'm sure all this will change weekly.

As much as I love the idea of NXT being American Driving School, getting a license in Florida is pretty much just a matter of reading the state driving manual. If you can pass a practical test in pretty much any other country, you'll have no trouble at all passing in Florida.

Not like Noam Dar can't just hitch a ride with someone else until he learns how it works, either. Just ask questions and whatnot.

It's not the first time he's been in the US, either. He did a few matches here for TNA, after all.

Is tonight just a clip show like after Dallas? I could do with skipping it to reduce my wrestling intake a little bit before the CWC.

I believe it has TM61 vs The Authors of Pain and Tye Dillinger vs one of Blake & Murphy (the less-good one, which I think is Blake?) which were taped before Takeover, so still at the Barclays Centre, but otherwise probably a lot of video packages, and maybe a backstage promo or two, possibly reusing stuff from WWE.com, so possibly skippable.

So speaking as someone who doesn't usually watch weekly NXT - since you can watch TakeOver on the Network and on Hulu, who exactly needs these recaps?

the wrestlers, who do not want to do another round of taping two days after a massive event, and the production team, who do not want to edit together an episode in 24 hours

That does make sense, and I guess just putting more dark matches on the TakeOver card to try and fill the episode would run the risk of exhausting the live crowd.

they don't have a big enough TV-ready roster for this, I think. they pit jobbers v jobbers if they wanted but then it'd look and sound like an empty arena match and that doesn't help anyone

I also love all the promos/interviews on this so I can deal with the recaps

I do quite appreciate that the booking of that match was "Bayley spent tons of time scouting the Asuka Lock, successfully broke it, unfortunately didn't scout getting kicked in the face really loving hard."

Yeah, I thought it was a good followup to the previous two TakeOvers. She's cognizant of the move that took her down in Dallas, but failed to take into consideration what destroyed Nia Jax at The End. Meanwhile Asuka gets to look like a multi-threat in the ring.

It just does such a good job getting Asuka over. She doesn't even have a "finisher" in the traditional sense. Who the hell expects "two kicks" to be enough to score a pinfall for anybody except HBK.
