NXT 2.0 Recap- A New Era Begins With A New NXT Champion Crowned
Hey gang!  With WarGames coming up quickly on the horizon (a week from this Sunday on December 5, to be precise), NXT has a lot of work to do to build the card for that event and maybe more importantly, set the two WarGames matches to headline the event  While the women's match is for the[...]

NXT 2.0 Preview 11/23: A Triple Threat North American Title Match
Hey gang!  So this week's episode of NXT 2.0 actually looks pretty loaded with some decent attention-grabbing matches, which is a nice change from only announcing one or two matches in advance, as WWE has done quite frequently as of late  The big main event match is of course the Triple Threat Match, where NXT North[...]
Hit Row Hit Job: Why WWE Called Up A Popular NXT Act To Kill Them
 But among the releases was also the shocking final nails in the WWE coffin of the highly promising former NXT faction, Hit Row, who seemed earmarked for WWE stardom when the entire faction was surprisingly selected by SmackDown in the recent WWE Draft  Yet now, after two recent rounds of releases, every member of the group are[...]
"It's me, Austin! It was me all along!" - Screencap of WWE Monday Night Raw from back when it was good
But with more viable companies in play than ever before, the WWE's loss could be professional wrestling's gain in the big picture. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon loves money. Here's a look at Maverick's video reaction to the news that was posted earlier this evening, with the clip implying at the end that Maverick already has plans for[...]

Hey gang!  So last week on NXT 2.0, we got the exciting announcement that the beloved WarGames match would be returning to NXT in the form of a Peacock-exclusive event (modern talk for pay per view) on Sunday, December 5  We can assume that like the last WarGames event two years ago, there will be both[...]
NXT 2.0 Preview 11/16: It's Time For Some Old Fashioned Revenge
Hey gang!  One of the longer stories in NXT that has transitioned from the old black and gold era to the NXT 2.0 era we find ourselves in now is the one of Raquel Gonzalez and Dakota Kai, the former best friends and tag team partners whose relationship has tuned a complete 180 degrees and we now see[...]

NXT 2.0 Recap- A New Era Begins With A New NXT Champion Crowned
Hey gang!  So far, the NXT 2.0 era has produced inconsistent results  One week we'll get some pretty solid matches and a look at a promising up-and-coming talent, only to follow that up the next week with an episode filled with silly comedy and a very little amount of wrestling  I'm a firm believer that any wrestling[...]
NXT 2.0 Preview 11/9- A Full Night Of Matches?  On A WWE Show?
Hey gang!  Last week's episode of NXT 2.0 was hot garbage, full stop  It was full of bad comedy, silly skits, way too many backstage or video segments, and worst of all, very little actual wrestling  NXT is supposed to be a developmental showcase where young "not ready for primetime" talents hone their skills and get[...]
Keith Lee Addresses His WWE Release In A Twitter Statement
Arguably the most shocking and disheartening of the large number of wrestlers released by WWE last week was that of former NXT Champion Keith Lee.  Fans were positive that Lee had all of the special qualities necessary to blow past WWE Chairman Vince McMahon's creative Death Star blast, but alas as many, many times before, the[...]

 I am referring to the former NXT superstars that Vince and company just couldn't seem to not screw up. Keith Lee on the mic during WWE Raw, courtesy of WWE. Of the 18 wrestlers released yesterday, 16 of them were former or current NXT talents, and all of them were scouted and hired under the previous NXT[...]
Kyle O'Reilly's Contract With WWE Is Set To Expire Next Month
It can be argued that in 2021, no star in NXT has received a bigger push to the main event as Kyle O'Reilly  Used as part of the faction Undesputed Era for the entirety of his time in NXT, O'Reilly had never quite been given the chance to step out of the team he shared with Roderick Strong, Bobby[...]
Zoey Stark Is Legitimately Injured & Was Written Off TV Last Night
If you watched NXT 2.0 last night on the USA Network, you will remember that in the opening segment we witnessed Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolin of Toxic Attraction assault and seemingly injure the leg of former NXT Women's Tag Team Champion Zoey Stark in a backstage segment  It was a quick moment, but an impactful one as it[...]
