NXT is the best WWE show

Published Add your comment

NXT is the best wrestling show on TV right now. The WWE are putting out a lot of content at the moment, with weekly episodes of RAW, SmackDown, Main Event, SuperStars and NXT.

But, nothing is coming close to what is being produced down in Orlando.

Next generation 

For those who aren't sure what NXT is, here's a quick lesson. It's the developmental system that is based at Full Sail University in Orlando, featuring the next generation of WWE Super-stars, it's the brainchild of Triple H.

Whilst it started as a goofy reality style show, that did produce Wade Barrett and Daniel Bryan, it was never anything more. It was all a bit strange.

But this rebirth down in Orlando has seen it move from strength-to-strength, with a host of notable alumni such as The Shield, Rusev and The Wyatt family, it now has some serious credibility.

Many reasons 

There's a number of reasons why NXT is fantastic, but the main one has to be the quality of wrestling that is put on show, it's the perfect blend of "indie spots" and the WWE storytelling.

Unlike the hurried rivalries we see on RAW, NXT takes it's time to build a feud between the wrestlers, the Cesaro and Zayn feud is a perfect example of that.

Cesaro played the heel to perfection, whilst Zayn got over big time as the underdog face, at the end of the day though it was the fans that won. If you haven't seen any of their matches, I urge you to find some time to watch them, they are wrestling poetry.

With the show only being an hour long, it doesn't feel like a chore to sit through, too often has a three hour RAW felt like a three day episode. They just don't know what to do with the time.

On NXT however, the show is perfectly paced, with every episode leaving you wanting more. They have the perfect blend of wrestling and promos, with not to many squash matches, which we are seeing more often on Monday nights.

We're not inundated with lengthy Triple H style promos, instead it's just short sharp interviews, the wrestling generally does the talking.


And the quality of wrestling is just phenomenal.

But why wouldn't it be with the amount of proven indie talent in their ranks. Recently they have just announced the signing of Prince Devitt, Kevin Steen and KENTA, that's three of the best wrestling talents in the world today, and they've not even had there début yet.

Along with Neville, Zayn and the former Sami Callihan (Solomon Crowe), we're going to have some fantastic matches in the future, all these know each other inside out.

It seems that Triple H has turned NXT into a gloried indie promotion, something the Ring of Honour pioneered ten years ago, except under the banner of the WWE.

It could be the case that not all the stars above make into the main roster, and then get over, Chris Hero was a indie darling who didn't cut it in the WWE. But they will certainly be given a chance down in the developmental, and with that will come some potential Match of the Year fights.

Along with the abundance of male talent, the divas are flourishing in Orlando, not only are they attractive they can also put on good matches. Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks have huge potential, and look set for long careers in the business.

William Regal does an outstanding job on commentary, what he brings to the ring is nothing short of outstanding, he understands what it's like to be in the ring. He helps tell the story, and actually names the moves on show, he needs to be commenting on RAW sometime soon.

The future is bright for the WWE, and NXT is the proof of that, it's without doubt the best wrestling show on TV at the moment.
