Former WWE head writer Ed Ferrara believes the company delivers every time with their NXT TakeOver specials, according to reports, and it's fair to say it's tough to argue with him.
According to Wrestling News, the former WWE and TNA head writer appeared on WrestleZone Daily Radio to talk about the NXT TakeOver: Respect event which was aired live on the WWE Network earlier this week.
Ferrara said it was very emotional watching Bayley and Sasha Banks battle it out in an Iron Man match in the main event for the NXT Women's Championship, and he also said this is why so many people watch the developmental division these days.

He said: “The big impression that I had was, Man, do they know how to do celebrations for these women’s matches. Between this one and the NXT Brooklyn show… it grabs me by the heart, and I get so choked up watching it.
"They’re just so well done but not in a cheesy way; I don’t think at all. That to me reminds me of why we love watching this. It’s because we get caught up in the emotion.
"We get caught up in the story, and the characters and what’s happening, and we’re watching it happen right in front of us… it’s just emotionally captivating. They deliver every time.”
He is correct, they do deliver every time they put on a show. NXT succeeds so much that some fans are even asking for it to replace SmackDown's Thursday night slot on the USA Network, but I doubt the WWE will want to do this.
Bayley and Banks put on an amazing main event, which was eventually won by the current NXT Women's Champion by three falls to two.
I feel it's only a matter of time before Triple H and the creative writers for NXT are given more control on the main roster shows by WWE Chairman Vince McMahon in order to help and try boost ratings. They put on shows in NXT that the likes of Raw and SmackDown so desperately need.
Should Triple H and the NXT creative writers be given more control over the main roster shows? Have your say and leave a comment below...
