Agreed on Crews, love him as a talent but he still needs work in NXT. If he comes up, that reeks of Vince thinking New Day needs another member

Do people seriously prefer Ricochet in NXT over Lucha Underground? Nice to see the spirit of alternatives live.

I don't really care about Prince Puma all that much, honestly. I love LU but many wrestlers in that promotion rank above him for me personally.

I prefer a guy to get a chance to make it on the biggest stage, become a huge star and make tons of money before he kills his body on the independent scene and is broken down by 30.

No one can keep working that style forever, he's got enough charisma that A. He shouldn't be wasted under a mask in LU and B. He can scale back his offense and still get over huge in NXT/WWE.

Plus he's said WWE is his goal, so yeah, it's nice to see people accomplish what they set out for

LU will soon have two seasons in the bank. We can have two years of Ricochet in NXT/WWE, while simultaneously also getting to watch his taped LU stuff, before any possible season 4 would even make the air.

Is that why basically 70% of WWE roster have multiple surgeries by the end of their 30s?

And from a pure markdom perspective, I prefer a guy to help a new brand's ambitions to go places and to make his living there. I repeat, that's me being an asshole mark, I don't do pats on the back.

How is he making a living there when it will be 18 months plus with them offering absolutely no work? And no guarantee there will even be more work at the end of it.

I wish NXT would do the Richmond/DC/Baltimore triple shot already. I got spoiled during my year and a half living in Orlando.

I enjoy watching Ricochet wrestle much more than I enjoy Prince Puma.

Have NXT said what this week's TV is? Given they only taped three weeks of TV, I think it'll be a look back at Takeover, and they maybe air Crews/Drifter. Maybe a feature on Corbin in the Andre Battle Royal.

Man, NXT is going to be looking different. Crews, Corbin, the Vaudevillains, and Enzo & Cass all went up today officially. Emma and Eva Marie appear to be up for good, with Bayley a potential to follow. And Finn and Joe are possibilities to go up any time.

The men's singles division in particular is pretty much going to have to debut fresh if Joe and Finn leave. I'm not panicking or anything, it's just going to be a shift. Minus those two the division is mainly Nakamura, Aries, an injured Itami, Tye DIllinger, and Gargano/Ciampa. I'm excited to see who gets the pushes to fill the spots, and how the Global Cruiserweight series interrelates with the NXT roster. Fingers crossed for a big Rich Swann push. Excited for Roode, too.

Crews/Sampson was officially on the preview for tomorrow.

Would love to know what the deal with Carmella is. Was it just the nature of introductory angle with the Dudleys? She's being held off so not to be confused with Maryse?
