Previews & Predictions: NXT Takeover San Antonio

Hot on the heels of Wrestle Kingdom 11 comes another mega pro wrestling event in the form of WWE’s Royal Rumble weekend.  But, before we get to the Rumble itself, NXT will be putting on yet another TakeOver event the night before.  So without further ado, let’s break it down match by match…

NXT TakeOver Toronto: Previews & Predictions

Once again, WWE makes the fatal mistake of putting on an NXT special event the night before a main roster pay-per-view. Every damn time the company does this, NXT wipes the floor with the main roster; you’d think they’d learn their lesson.  Granted, Survivor Series was one of my favorite PPVs back in the day (along w/ the Royal Rumble) and I have to admit I’m pretty darn happy to see so many traditional 5 on 5 elimination matches happening this coming Sunday, but my overall enthusiasm for NXT is about a million times greater, so without further ado…

Wednesday Night’s Alright for Fighting

Doomsday Device has been a little light on wrestling related content of late.  There are a lot of reasons for this, but the most prominent one is that I’ve been pretty burnt out on WWE.  The main roster just isn’t doing it for me; Raw and Smackdown feel like glorified commercials for the pay-per-view events, and said PPVs haven’t really done much to hold my attention or even pique my interest (I stopped watching No Mercy after the first match, and I haven’t even bothered to start Hell in a Cell yet).  On top of that, many of my favorite talents have been beyond poorly booked (Bayley, Gallows & Anderson, the entire Cruiserweight Division, etc, etc) which is always tough to watch.

NXT TakeOver Brooklyn II: Previews and Predictions

I can’t help but feel like it might not be the best idea for WWE to run NXT events on the same weekends as their major PPVs.  Reason being is that time and again NXT has stolen the show, making the main roster product look pretty darn inferior.  NXT events wisely focus on quality of matches over quantity and Brooklyn II looks like it’s got some serious bangers on tap for fans of actual wrestling.  So, without further ado…

WWE/NXT debut season!

As exciting as Wrestlemania season can be, the days and weeks following the biggest event in pro wrestling can be an even more thrilling time for fans.  Why, you ask?  Because this is when WWE typically debuts newly signed talents and calls up NXT wrestlers to the main roster.  Wrestlemania weekend itself saw several excellent debuts, but from the looks of things WWE and NXT may be far from done shaking up their rosters in 2016.  Lets take a look at all that has transpired so far and what might possibly be coming down the road.

Wrestlemania weekend reaction and wrap up

Well, Wrestlemania weekend has come and gone, and overall it was pretty darn entertaining, albeit somewhat strange and baffling at the same time.  Since I hate long winded intros, let’s get right down to business and break down the highlights of the weekend and the Raw after Wrestlemania.
