So it looks like there's more for Joe to do in NXT before he goes to SmackDown.

Authors of Pain look like Vince got so fed up with the repeated failed gimmicks of the Shining Stars and started testing military strength experimental steroids on them.

Authors of Pain are Super Mutants and Ellering is The Master. They just need a little more time in the vats.

wish they'd had a nakamura or joe promo this week but looking forward to the upcoming set of tapings! I'll try to remain spoiler free but I am super curious what matchups are coming up next, beyond Aries/Itami

If The Revival are getting called up, they've gotta drop the belts to Gargano and Ciampa at the tapings, I assume?

They're supposed to be the Road Warriors, so that's fine. Hell of a lot better than 'Konnor' and 'Viktor'

I was hoping they'd get names that were pain-related puns of famous authors, but I was having a hard time coming up with good ones so I don't blame creative for taking the easy way out.

If Authors of Pain flops, they can always repackage as Two Crude Dudes with a new finish dubbed the Crude Buster.

Bayley posted a goodbye: http://www.f4wonline.com/news/bayle..._medium=twitter

quote:

Dear NXT,

Today I went into the Performance Center and had to clean out my locker. After almost 4 years with NXT, it's time for me to step away and the new crop of women to step up. I am so confident in the division and know we will see it be taken to newer heights.

I've seen FCW shows grow from 12 people in the crowd to NXT payperviews with 15,000 in Brooklyn. NXT is my life, it's everything I am, everything I've ever wanted in wrestling. The roster, the coaches, our bosses, our fans. All of it is everything I've ever wanted. I couldn't have dreamt up a better journey, and I couldn't have asked for better support and love that all of you have embraced me with.

I love this industry with all of my heart but I mean this when I say it, I would not be able to do the things I've done without you guys. You fans match our passion. With everything we give you in the ring, you give us right back as fans. And that's what makes NXT special, and that's what I'll miss most.

I'll miss my NXT family backstage, I'll miss those once in a lifetime moments like doing Finn Balors entrance or teaming with Shinsuke Nakamura or standing in the ring for 10 minutes as you guys sing a song, and I'll miss the proud feeling of being a part of it all.

But I know it will continue. And I will never stop chasing that feeling. I am beyond excited to bring everything you all taught me, to WWE. Thank you for the memories, and as always, WE are NXT.

Good main event tonight. Authors of Pain are better than I expected because they actually are imposing and can move in the ring. Best TM61 has looked so far as well imo. That tope from Shane Thorn was absolutely insane.

Asuka/Billie Kay/Ember Moon/Crazy Mary is a good four girls to build the division around. It'd be neat if they signed someone like Hojo, Shirai, or LaRae though

I don't think you're getting LaRae without Joey Ryan, and I'm pretty sure they don't want Joey Ryan.
