NXT Ramblings for 12/02/2015

WWE_NXT_2014_logoSome weekly ramblings about this week’s NXT show, two weeks out from NXT Takeover: London

  • I definitely like Apollo Crews in the ring, but his promos need a bit of work. If he’s mad at Baron Corbin it really isn’t coming through, almost like he’s holding back. He needs to make it feel a bit more real.
  • Speaking of promos, my dream of Scott Dawson becoming Arn Anderson reincarnated is moving in the correct direction. He’s clearly the talker of the group. Not sure why I see so much negativity about this team in some corners because “two guys who want to hurt people” has worked in wrestling forever.

  • If that squash from Nia Jax is the end for Blue Pants it is a shame because she made Jax look like a million bucks and a viable challenger to Bayley. I don’t know if Blue Pants annoyed people in the back or something, but she is very good at her role: making the female heels look good.
  • I have no idea what to do with the Vaudevillians at this point, though turning them heel again would probably be for the best since the heel side of the tag ledger is pretty bare with Blake and Murphy somewhat vanishing. Gotch and English are fine in the ring, but that gimmick will not work on the main roster, as much as I’ve enjoyed it in the past.
  • That was an excellent match between Samoa Joe and Tommaso Ciampa. Give me 6-7 minutes of two guys beating the crap out of each other and I’m happy.
  • I am so confused by the backstage interviewer, who looked like Rich Brennan but just slightly off. Did I miss that it is Rich Brennan? Did they pick up a store brand version? I kind of miss Devin Taylor.
