    WWE NXT WWE NXT Discussion - June 3, 2020

    WWE NXT Preview

    El Hijo del Fantasma and Drave Maverick clash for Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship

    There are Cinderella stories, and then there’s what Drake Maverick has accomplished in the NXT Cruiserweight Title Tournament.

    Against all odds, Maverick shook off a tournament-opening loss to Jake Atlas and has racked up three consecutive wins to emerge as the winner of Group B. A three-way tie atop group A resulted in a decisive Triple Threat Match between Maverick, Atlas and Kushida. Atlas appeared to submit to Kushida’s armbar, but the apparent tapout went undetected, and Maverick rolled up Kushida for the win!

    Now, Maverick has the opportunity to claim the crown jewel of WWE’s Cruiserweight Division when he takes on relative newcomer El Hijo del Fantasma. Fantasma has made an immediate impact in his short time on the black-and-gold brand, using a mix of toughness and incredible athleticism to win Group B with a 2-1 record, a run that was punctuated by a thrilling victory against Akira Tozawa.

    Can Maverick complete one of the most improbable paths to a title in WWE history? Or will Fantasma claim championship gold mere weeks after his debut? Find out tonight on NXT at 8/7 C on USA Network!

    Mia Yim and Candice LeRae take their hostilities to the ring

    Mia Yim tops the list of new enemies Candice LeRae has made in short order since her recent change in demeanor. They’ll take their grudge to the ring tonight on NXT.

    “The Poison Pixie” was on the scene with husband Johnny Gargano to mock Yim immediately after her win over Santana Garrett two weeks ago. LeRae derided The HBIC for “pandering” to the NXT Universe – a similar criticism Johnny Wrestling leveled against Yim’s own significant other and his NXT TakeOver: In Your House opponent, North American Champion Keith Lee.

    Yim and Lee took a page out of The Garganos’ book, mocking their recent dinner parties, with The Blasian Baddie even saying LeRae was living in “the shadow of her sad excuse for a husband.” Ouch.

    The time for talk is over, however. Who will back up their words with a victory?

    Ok, so they did turn a pandemic firing into a storyline, after they fired god knows how many people to ensure they still reached their record profits this year.

    Which in turn frames everyone else they fired as people who deserved to be unemployed because they are unmotivated and didn't try as hard as Drake did to keep their job. Only people who bow down at the feet of the McMahons and cling onto the childhood dream that WWE is the be all and end all deserve to be paid during a pandemic.

    Drake got his job back because he sacrificed his dignity to keep working for a boss that doesn't care about him and then wanted him back just to exploit his emotions at being jobless. He's the perfect employee to them.

    And they probably think this is a great, heartwarming storyline. I couldn't care less about Drake in NXT now. Comes off totally disingenuous

    This fucking company.
