He could also be trying to improve his social media by going back to square one, kind of funny to see how he and Djack have been diverging in how they do social media.

NXT Pittsburgh was fun even though Johnny Gargano wasn't there (no Kassius either) also it was kind of lame seeing Aleister Black sell offense for Gunner.

Main was really good though (Three Way between Adam Cole vs Roddy vs Almas) Britt Baker was in the front row with this older promoter guy and this teenager in a Heidi Lovelace shirt who Ruby Riott must have known since she hugged both of them.

The card was
Street Profits (dressed as Antonio Brown and Levon Bell) vs Riddick Moss and Tino
Lars vs No Way Jose
Ruby vs Bianca Belair
Sanity vs TUE for the tag title belts
Intermission
Black vs Gunner
Sonya vs Ember Moon for the Women's title
Almas vs Roddy vs Cole for the NXT title

Tino will probably be overpushed really fast with his physique but he's pretty spry and quick, sorta reminds me of Jason Jordan back when he was a jobber. You just hope that with the last two years he's become safer as he's become more assured in the way he moves

Yeah, I had a friend at the Pittsburgh show, and their kid was disappointed because apparently Kairi wasn't there. She wasn't at the Lakeland show either. Guess she's taking some time off of the road.

e: She did have fun seeing Ember though!

I was also there and that main event was amazing. Roddy is a beast. The beginning part of the match was Cole and Almas teaming up against him, and Roddy was busting out crazy moves and keeping up with both of those guys.

Black vs Gunner was the only match I wasn't digging at all. Black is crazy impressive for his size, but Gunner is blandness personified.

I scared that it gets picked up. Meaning Vince and Dunn input.

And yeah I know NXT is like the anchor weekly show for the Network but I am still panicking.

Hope they fill the hour with Sonya Deville matches and main evented by Angelo Dawkins vs Tucker Knight.

I wish they'd just give Hero the old Regal role of NXT of being final-boss. I don't expect Hero to make it out of NXT anymore but he definitely has plenty to teach the guys still in NXT.

I doubt it. They want the UK guys for the UK show WWE supposedly have.

I do know the key UK guys got a big increase in pay in their contract renewal. Double of previous.

The WWE UK guys have a lot heat/resentment towards them as they are management favourites. For example, they were allowed to do "main event stuff" at the tapings this week like powerbomb each other on the ring steps. In general, they seem to have a lot more latitude in their matches than NXT or 205ers.

Factor in all the indie merch orders they have. How in demand they are on the indies - UK indies are doing more and more weekday shows. I imagine they are taking home a lot of money. And they don't have to go the PC.

The UK guys should get the freedom to do whatever the hell they want because every match involving any of them is loving awesome. I just wish they were utilized more often.

"Heat" is pretty dumb. Not like the UK guys are going to tell management no and "well actually can we have a 205 chinlock match instead". Neither is their push a Jinder situation.

I thought the argument was that WWE was looking to prevent a big UK-wide promotion/television program getting off the ground (World of Sports?) by offering small but guaranteed money to UK indy wrestlers so they could still wrestle the indies but not on any non-WWE television in the UK?

There was also the fear that Progress\whoever would be unable to book long term with them, which would be damaging.
