    WWE NXT RIP Storylines - The WWE NXT Discussion Thread


    It will never end!!!



    44 episodes on and still going, NXT Redemption is now 10 months old and there seems no end in sight to the show. I'm led to believe that at the very least Ken still watches NXT, so just for Ken, here's a new thread to start 2012 seeing as though the last one wasn't used in 3 months. Will the new year see the end of the season 5, will someone win the chance..........to appear on NXT season 6? who knows?

    So Ken to kick it off, do you want to tell the good members of WC like me who haven't seen NXT in months just what the hell is going on, do they even talk about someone 'winning' the show or have they just moved into essentially another brand that just builds storylines and what not?

    Gladly.

    NXT is an interesting show now. They no longer really do any challenges, in fact, the idea that it's a competition is still barely touched on.

    The final three left in are Bateman, O'Neil, and D-Young. However, they all have more interesting stories going on than the competition. Bateman became engaged to Maxine, from a previous NXT season until his former friend Johnny Curtis made his way back to NXT. He has been making life difficult for Bateman, and it appears to have turned Maxine against him (with the help of JTG, Aksana, etc.) and now Maxine and Curtis are supposedly going to be married in two weeks. Bateman is pretty win in general, Curtis is fun as a creepy/odd dude, and Maxine is hot.

    O'Neil is superface, no longer with Hornswoggle but he frequently tags with former NXT alum Percy Watson (no glasses, instead face jock who has a show Showtime with Percy Watson) and they're feuding with Darren Young (who bounces back and forth between partners but is usually with JTG, who is dating Tamina). "The Big Deal" Titus O'Neil and "No Days Off" D-Young's feud is pretty decent, in ring work only being okay.

    Besides them, they are currently bringing back NXT stars from the past due to the 100th episode of NXT approaching. Guys like Gabriel/Slater/Riley/"The Natural" Michael McGillicutty etc. have been brought back.

    Beyond that, it's a good brand for tag action, as The Usos/Hawkins and Reks/Percy and O'Neil, etc are usually on. In fact, Hawkins/Reks are 'feuding' with Yoshi and Barreta right now, which is pretty entertaining. Kidd also makes a lot of appearances and Matt Striker is the "GM" which Josh Matthews still can't understand.

    Does it all make sense? Nah. But it's fun and a lot of guys are given time who normally aren't. It's definitely different than anything else you'll see and people are given a lot of character development, which is nice. It isn't a workrate mark's dream (though Gabriel, Barreta, Kidd etc do put on some great stuff) but it's a really fun show overall.

    It is STILL on, but it's not the same show really so meh.

    And yeah. Regal had some nasty infection I guess that kept him off for almost two months but he returned.

    Just the idea of Regal with an infection sorta scares me. It just reminds me of that vague infection he got in 2003 that took him off of TV for over a year and threatened his life.

    Yeah man, I was worried it was that too. But he seems happy and healthy now so that's great and a big plus to the show.

    Re: The Official WWE NXT Discussion Thread

    I just started watching NXT again after seeing Ken praising it earlier in this thread. Gotta say it's very interesting. Maxine is hot. Curtis is awkward but funny. Nice to see A-Ry back on the show and it's fantastic to see The Genesis of McGillicutty back as well.

    It's very unique. Maxine is wicked hot and I want her to feud with AJ more. Bateman is the man.

    Re: The Official WWE NXT Discussion Thread

    I saw some clips on Youtube of this season, Curtis and Bateman stuff, those guys rule and Maxine is super hot. NXT actually looks like it's become decent. I hear Hawkins and Reks work there a lot so I'm interested, I saw a clip of them "taking over" and stuff, it was cool. I might have to start watching sense Ken seems to think it's great having led me here from his signature....

    I'm gonna have to get to watching this again if only for Bateman and Maxine and her incredible hotness.

    ..We have no idea. But he's cool as a tag team guy with Percy.

    Re: The Official WWE NXT Discussion Thread

    Thoughts as I watch:

    Maxine as a bitch heel is STILL more likable than Alicia. And holy god is she hot with her hair straight. Can't believe she ever had it different. The match itself was way better than I expected since Alicia is terrible. Nothing good but not bad at all. Finish was surprisingly crisp.

    Trent v Tyler.. seriously? AWESOME. ****. Trent is God. This should be good.Awesome moment early with Trent knocking Reks down then climbing to the top, but Reks rolls away and leaves the ring next to Hawkins, Trent jumps down back into the ring then does his swan dive out onto both Reks and Hawkins. Rad. Trent turning the Burning Hammer into a backslide was cool. Furthering the tag feud after was good stuff too.

    JTG kinda sucks but is a good character, and it's cool that JTG and Kidd are both billed as extremely skilled tag superstars due to their past. Usos are awesome and them going over is the right move.

    Riley's theme is still so badass. Curtis is awesome, plus it's another chance to see Maxine <3. Marked for the Falcon's arrow. Bateman "HEY, THIS DOESN'T CONCERN YOU TOOTS!" was awesome.

    Really dug the O'Neil/D-Young brawl at the end, minus Striker making the announcement in all smiles while they're doing it.

    The wedding next week which Bateman is sure to crash and "No Days off" D-Young vs. "The Big Deal" Titus O'Neil in a no DQ match, plus it's the 100th episode of NXT? I'm down.

    So that's where all of those guys have been hiding... what happened to Riley's RAW push? How did he end up here? Reks vs Barreta sounds awesome though! Those guys need to be on the main shows! Wedding next week? Those are always fun, plus a No DQ match sounds cool! Did! I think I'll actually watch this episode, sounds like a good one to start with.
