Yeah, they either need to go all in with Ember and make her a werewolf or dial back the supernatural bits and just make her a wrestler with a cool entrance and gear. Or, only break out the contacts and super cosplay stuff the way they do with The Demon.

They should break out the contracts and cosplay stuff and make her The KISS Demon.

Nonsense. I have not yet begun to defile myself.

The Bray Wyatt experiment failed because someone got the idea that having a spooky supernatural gimmick means you will always be over enough to eat loss after loss after loss after loss. Ember *really* doesn't want to be the new Undertaker

Nope. Apparently the matches advertised for tonight are just matches taken from the San Antonio show.

If it's just that and another 30 minutes of video packages, I might skip this week. Wasn't really jonesing to see Street Profits/NFL Bros again anyway.

One of the big issues post TakeOver is that the show itself gets me all pumped up to watch NXT again, but then the following 2-3 weeks feel like nothing is happening and that there is no real follow-up until we get into the next set of tapings.

DarkstarIV

Mr. Intensity


Just a heads up, but tonight's tapings will be the last set at Full Sail for a pretty long time. They won't be taping at Full Sail again until April 2018. Next several sets of tapings will take place in Atlanta, Georgia. Venue will be Center Stage.

That was such an incredible and bizarre period. Literally everybody on-air AND off-air was saying,"Riley, what are you doing, you are going to get beat up and fired!" and then he got beat up and fired.

Still, he ended up on GLOW so I guess things worked out okay.

Tyler Bate and Pete Dunne are really, really, really loving good at wrestling. It's a shame they're both in their late 30s/early 40s.

It's extremely easier to wrestle "well" when you are smaller than any man's young son. Dunne and bate are intrinsically vile as they stand.

Real talk, he's super young and this was all obviously a massive learning experience. I won't be surprised if they bring him back in a few years when he's matured. The real loser here is Regal, who apparently pushed hard to sign him.

watching the new episode now and holy poo poo Street Profits vs Sabbateli & Moss is a great match with a hot crowd and I feel bad it's being overshadowed by the other tag match on the ep

oh my god why are they kayfabeing the UK tag team match being set up after the takeover preshow match tbf they are very good promos and I guess I'm generally okay with the idea of them adding an angle around a pretaped house show match

wow what a good-rear end episode, goddamn. also the best peyton singles match in a minute imo

I'm of the mind that while it sucks that he got cut, it's pretty much his fault for this happening. You don't run your mouth on twitter about a coworker (especially when they were just released and you were just recently signed), and apparently act like an absolute rear end in a top hat behind the scenes. If I recall, Mauro took a jab at Lio on twitter for being a bully to coworkers backstage.

Mauro made a comment about how Lio needs to mature. The "bully" part came in when rovert started trying to push this "Mauro is being a bully" narrative on twitter that nobody but him cared about.
