The crowd chanting,"MAMA MIA!" when Mauro almost got taken out by the announce table spot was so great

I call the darkness unto me from deepest depths of Earth and sea. From ancient evils unawoken, break the one that can't be broken. To blackest night, I pledge my soul and crush my heart to burning coal. To summon forth a deathly power, to see my hated foe devoured.


Percy is the MVP of that video though.

What I love about that video (besides everything) is the fact that it shows how much every NXT announcer, even Percy, isn't afraid to lose their poo poo.

There are lost episodes of course. Stories that were commissioned but never made. Or made but misfiled, post broadcast. Sheer incompetence, of course.

Nixon Newell seems to be finally cleared to return to action. NXT had her knee surgically repaired when she reported to the Performance Center. She has been recovering for about a year now. If you don't follow UK indies she's about to become your new favourite wrestler.

I will always defend my boy Mauro because gently caress, at least he seems to care. Cole (barring his WM30 calls) is just so rote nowadays that it robs even the coolest poo poo of impact sometime. At least Corey is trying to carry it.

I saw Nixon a few times at Axxess, she was mostly hanging around with Kay Lee Ray, and she looked like she was chomping at the bit to get back in the ring. Iím excited for her.

There are also only 5 5-Star matches in WWE ever that arenít in 2018

Cena/Punk - 2011 MITB
Austin/Bret - WM13
Michaels/Undertaker HIAC - Badd Blood
Razor Ramon/Michaels ladder match - WM10
Bret/Owen cage match - SummerSlam 94

Basically Gargano is as good as Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart.
