Let’s Say Nice Things About... NXT: The Game Show


In an effort to bring some positivity to professional wrestling—and the world for that matter—Cageside Seats and its community will say nice things about people and things in wrestling every single day throughout 2017.

A reminder of the rules: only positivity allowed here. No back-handed compliments, and CERTAINLY NO NEGATIVITY. If you don’t have something nice to say, keep it to yourself, or take it elsewhere. Negative comments will be deleted and you may be subjected to a ban. Cool? Cool.

Today’s subject: since it’s almost the seventh anniversary of its debut, NXT.

NOTE: We’re referring to the NXT reality competition series, not the developmental show that we know it as today. Also, as it will be done on a different day, we will also not be referring to NXT’s fifth season, Redepmtion. Basically, the original format.

I’ll start: NXT’s first four seasons gave us a host of new WWE talent that would have otherwise been lost in the shuffle otherwise: Wade Barrett, Skip Sheffield, Heath Slater, Husky Harris, AJ Lee, Naomi Knight, Kaitlyn, Derrick Bateman, and many others.

And most importantly, NXT gave us Daniel Bryan. And that’s the greatest gift of them all.

Now you do it. Say something nice about the first four seasons of NXT.

And if you have a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”, hit me up on Twitter @notoriouseddie. I promise I won’t bite.
