  1. WWE Network | Official Chat Thread

    Yes to both. Jinny has consistently been one of my favorite parts of NXT UK. She really stands out.  As for Isla, when I first watched her wrestle in Progress to now, haven't liked her in-ring work, agree it's sloppy.  Havent seen much improvement either. I'm not sure why they seem to be so high on her. Gimmick is cool I guess, but doesn't really connect with her in-ring stuff. 
  2. Dakota Kai possibly injured at NXT Live Event

    Dakota's having surgery this morning for her torn ACL. Honestly so bummed, was hopeful it wasn't a tear, but wasn't too optimistic. Just when she started to get traction appearing on NXT TV a lot. 💔
  3. WWE Signs Alpha Female & Kay Lee Ray?

    Very well deserved for both.  I didn't see anyone reporting anything about Jazzy/Alpha signing so that was a very nice surprise to see!  I was sad that she missed out getting signed after the first MYC due to her neck issues.  Seemed like she missed out on her one opportunity to get signed.  Glad that isn't the case and glad she's able to wrestle again.  Didn't seem likely for awhile.  A good addition for the heel women for NXT UK.  She naturally had that powerhouse/dominant heel aura to her that others don't.  Was really impressed with her only MYC match.  Could easily see her fit in where Rhea is when/if they move her back to NXT.    I was so happy that that we got confirmation for Kay Lee Ray.  I felt between the first two MYC tournaments that KLR was the biggest misbooking of either tournament.  She should have definitely went to at least the second round and gotten more offense.  KLR is one of those that can have a good match no matter who's across the ring with her which really benefits the inexperience of the NXT UK roster.  Think she could really boost them.  Also feel she could get over big as a babyface all over with the daredevil stuff she does, and is willing to do.  
  4. WWE opens up second Performance Centre

    Good, hopefully that will help a lot these guys and girls with promos, etc, as it's very much needed. NXT UK has been a slog to get through, to the point I gave up a few weeks ago.  Hopefully it's better after Takeover.  Wonder if they make everyone move to go to the PC everyday like the US PC, or some of them will just show up every so often. 
  5. Selfishly I hope NXT UK gets both, but I'd be happy with either.  Viper would be a great powerhouse and a lot different in-ring from the rest, and KLR is one of the absolute best at making anyone look good.  I wonder how it will work/pan out since I feel like I've still seen both advertised for February World of Sport live shows.  NXT UK women's division needs more bodies and talent.  Feel like there's a big in-ring talent disparity between Toni and everyone else.  Both Viper and Kay Lee Ray would certainly make it less noticeable and I feel help raise the division quite a bit.
  6. I believe what they mean is midcard women will be paid the same base pay as the midcard males, and same for low and high card guys and girls. Assuming base pay will be the same, but things like bonuses for merch, PPV sales, etc will be how others (like Jericho, etc) will make more than others. 
  7. With Brandi alluding signing or wanting to sign some girls from Europe, Australia, and Japan hopefully they do grab quite a few of those girls (KLR, Bea, Shazza, Indi, etc) as they'd be an absolute steal and make for a solid division.  Love to see those girls get US exposure. 
  8. WWE announces women’s tag titles

    Such a weird place to announce it, but happy we're finally getting the tag titles. Next we just need an all women's weekly show to showcase all the girls. 
  9. Aliyah's future in WWE

    There hasn't been a real effort to put Aliyah over or really introduce her gimmick to the crowd (or at least as of late). Her gimmick seems cool, but I really know nothing about it.  The times I've watched her she has a heel demeanor but doesn't really do anything heel, and I honestly don't remember the last time she said more than a few words.  I don't know whether that is because of whatever she's doing personally backstage, or her just not standing out when she's on TV to invest in her more.  She's had a few opportunities the last few months to show her value.  She had Mia's TV debut and then a short mini feud with Dakota.  So they must like her to some degree, especially if she's been there that long. NXT girls appearing has always been random and sporadic if they're not a main feature at the time, so it's really hard to guess.  I think ultimately if/when she gets called up she'll end up a manager for someone.  Basically serve as a distraction and what not.
  10. Dakota Kai possibly injured at NXT Live Event

    Could also be they were letting her go home for the holidays before they choose to operate. There's no way she could do 20+ hours of travel back home to New Zealand a week after surgery. 
  11. Dakota Kai possibly injured at NXT Live Event

    Her latest instagram post you can see she's wearing a knee brace.  Lots of people I know has been fine to walk on their knee a few days after tearing their ACL. The knee tends to start feeling better to where it almost feels like nothing happens. Well besides the fact you cant move laterally. I'd say the brace is so she doesnt tear anything else, or doesnt tear the rest of her ACL. It may just be partially torn.  Hope we find out soon. 
  12. Lacey Evans Getting The Call

    Absolutely agree. I think it hurts everyone that got called up. Highly doubtful they work Mania (maybe a battle royal if anything). Not that they would, but any of the ones getting called up could have worked Takeover. I think the idea pf this call up was mostly to bring in more bodies for each respective Royal Rumble.  I'd like to have faith they have plans for everyone but based on previous history I'm not extremely optimistic. I still believe Lacey could be successful and find her niche. She feels like a person who could be a good fit main roster wise. 
  13. Lacey Evans Getting The Call

    I'd say it's a bit dependent on how they debut her and what brand she's on. I'd assume RAW since I'd assume Nikki will be on SD and they usually split fairly even.  If they just throw her out there and not really introduce her character, then she'll sink. I think her gimmick could work well for awhile though.   I think she's a hard worker and getting the opportunity to wrestle more and be in front of a crowd even more will help her a lot. Could end up doing really well or not. Who knows. I'm optimistic though. 
  14. Nick Miller of The Mighty released

    Shame The Mighty seemed to be getting their footing as heels on NXT the past couple months.  I was enjoying them.  They're one's that had a bit of bad timing with Thorne tearing his ACL during the 2nd Dusty Classic when they were starting to get started as babyfaces.  So never really got any momentum. Obviously Thorne was the more flashy/charismatic of the two, though Miller was probably overall the better wrestler.  Hopefully Thorne will get a good opportunity at a singles run, stay healthy, and not get lost in the mix (especially considering there's a big group of talent set to show up January).
  15. Dakota Kai possibly injured at NXT Live Event

    Tegan and now Dakota dudeeeeee. This is the worst.  Just as Dakota was finally getting some momentum and consistent stories on NXT ughhhh
