What caught our eye?
The voice of EVOLVE had a nice night out just enjoying wrestling with the fam:
I've announced hundreds of ppv shows but it's still so much fun to sit in the crowd & watch my son's reactions to wrestling #NXTLargo— Lenny Leonard (@WWNLennyLeonard) October 2, 2016
The Largo card also gives us a peek at a potential for how NXT plans to use the faction she’s a part of as a means to put Nikki’s solo career on the fast track. She not only won her singles match, but then played a role in Wolfe & Fulton’s tag bout - which included a callback to her match with Morgan, as Liv stopped Cross from diving onto the defeated hosses after SaniTY’s win.
And, hey, Lenny approves!
I joked about Swagsuke working this weekend being contradictory to the on-screen story, but the man is keeping kayfabe (hopefully, and not working matches despite needing to keep his neck stabilized) while waiting for his music to hit:
Itami spiked by Moss on a powerslam spot - Nakamura had to reach and tag himself in for the finish in front of a silent crowd.
Hideo dismissed the doctors and indicated he was okay afterwards.
After a rare Monday show in Palm Springs, some of the roster hits the road for Virginia and Maryland starting Thursday; the rest spend next Friday & Saturday in the Sunshine State.
