WWE NXT: Previews

NXT should consider getting in on WWE’s title unification craze

Combining the 2.0 & UK men’s Tag belts and making the women’s ones company-wide would make sense for a few different reasons. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for June 28’s show.

This will be a crucial stretch of Cameron Grimes’ WWE career

He’s rebounding from his North American title loss with a shot at the NXT champ. How that goes should tell is a lot about his future. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for June 21’s show.

Apollo Crews’ NXT 2.0 run may be his last WWE chance

Can his second stint on the brand be more memorable than his first, and help rejuvenate his career in the process? Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for June 14’s show.

NXT’s champions need new challengers

Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for June 7’s In Your House fallout show.

NXT’s focus on women’s wrestling could use some adjustments

For the second time in three weeks, an episode is being promoted primarily around the brand’s women. That’s good! But is the way they’re being presented the right way to draw an audience? Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for May 31’s show.

NXT’s Gacy/Breakker program is bad, and it should get worse

The program leading into In Your House’s main event is silly, and nothing’s going to change that now. So they should lean into it. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for May 17’s show.

There’s no end in sight for Mandy Rose’s NXT Women’s title run

She just marked 200 days as champ, and the most serious threats to her reign don’t seem positioned to challenge Toxic Attraction’s leader right now. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for May 17’s show.

Hey! We think we know those druids!

We’re breaking down the latest rash of kidnappings in NXT, and think Joe Gacy’s Bron Breakker-snatching druids are soon to be Orlando’s #1. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for the May 10 edition of 2.0.

NXT needs to be able to explain people disappearing mid-story

May 3 brings a big Spring Breakin’ edition, but we’re distracted by last week’s releases, and the threat of them becoming a regular occurrence. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for tonight’s show.

At least NXT has a plan for Wes Lee after Nash Carter’s release

But is it a good plan? Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for April 26 Spring Breakin’ go home episode.

Kushida probably won’t be the last veteran leaving NXT 2.0

Not the subject we wanted to lead with, but Kushida’s reported departure has us wondering about a few other black-and-gold era veterans. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for this week’s episode.

Rick Steiner’s ‘kidnapping’ was the least crazy thing that happened in NXT last week

Seriously, A LOT has happened since last Tuesday. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for the April 12 episode.

Dolph Ziggler presents an interesting test case for NXT 2.0

Main roster stars have ended runs on the show before, but never after dropping a title. WWE’s next move with The Show Off should be interesting. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for April 5’s Stand & Deliver fallout episode.

NXT Women’s tag titles even less relevant than the main roster ones

Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne are just a well accessorized entourage for Mandy Rose, and the last few weeks have proved it. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for Mar. 29’s episode of NXT.

Santos Escobar deserves a shot at filling Rey Mysterio’s boots

WWE’s tried out quite a few wrestlers as their next big Latino Superstar, and last Tuesday they set the stage for someone well worth taking a chance on. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for Mar. 22’s episode of NXT.

Bron Breakker should be the model for a new kind of NXT call-up

Raw stars like Dolph Ziggler & Miz are guest starring on NXT. Why not vice versa? It’s better than showing up all of a sudden as a guy named Butch. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for Mar. 15’s episode of NXT.

Give us a couple weeks of Dolph Ziggler: NXT champ

It’ll add some suspense to Stand & Deliver, and future 2.0 title matches. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for Mar. 8’s Roadblock edition of NXT.

Ciampa’s theme music didn’t survive the move to Raw. Will his WWE career?

Seems we’re watching the end of Tommaso Ciampa’s time on 2.0. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for Mar. 1’s episode of NXT.

What happens on NXT actually matters on Raw now

2.0 means the days of black-and-gold brand champions showing up on Monday nights without any mention of their Tuesday night job seem to be over. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for Feb. 22’s show.

Melo don’t miss, and it might be time for him to take bigger shots

We praise NXT’s A Champion (and his equally talented right-hand man Trick) by asking if he should lose his current belt at Vengeance Day. That, and everything you need to get ready for Feb. 15’s big show.

NXT 2.0’s title programs suffer from a lack of suspense

It can often be an issue with wrestling stories, but WWE’s revamping of their development show makes it particularly glaring in feuds like Bron Breakker vs. Santos Escobar. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for the Feb. 8 edition of the show.

The NXT women’s division may not be ready for a Dusty Classic

It’s made for some okay on-screen angles, but the first round of a women’s tag tournament won’t be must see TV. Let’s talk about that as we get you ready for the Feb. 1 edition of the show.

Let WALTER be WALTER, and he’ll get over as GUNTHER

Looking back at the controversy caused by a name change, and a more egregious gimmick change it overshadowed, as we get you ready for the Jan. 25 episode of NXT.

Escobar might be next for Breakker, but Lopez is getting the push

It’s clear Elektra Lopez is pulling the string for Legado Del Fantasma, and that WWE has high hopes for her. More on that as we get you ready for a Jan. 18 NXT with WALTER vs. Strong, the men’s Dusty Classic, and more!

The clock is already ticking on Bron Breakker’s NXT title reign

Seeing as everyone agrees he’s WWE next big star, how much longer can they keep the new champ in developmental? We ponder that, and give you everything you need to get ready for Jan. 11’s New Year’s Evil fallout episode.

New Year’s Evil should give us a taste of a major main roster feud

Riddle & WALTER are only 1⁄3 of a trios match on the Jan. 4 NXT, but WWE should revisit their indie rivalry on bigger stages. Plus, everything you need to get ready for tonight’s big show!

Main roster crossovers alone won’t grow NXT’s audience

They’re a good idea, but not a quick fix. More on that, and everything you need to get ready for Dec. 28’s New Year’s Evil go home show, here.

Newly solo AJ Styles is headed to NXT

Fresh off the Omos split, AJ’s doing an angle with Grayson Waller. What does it say about Waller’s future, or Styles’ present? Let’s chop that up while getting you ready for the Dec. 21 edition of the paint splatter brand.

Waller & Wagner need to earn the rubs they got from Gargano & O’Reilly

After their big statement moves against departing(?) stars, two heels face the dreaded ‘what’s next?’ That, and everything you need to get ready for Dec. 14’s show.

It seems more likely Gargano is headed to the main roster than to AEW

Let’s talk about why we think that, and if we feel the same way about Kyle O’Reilly, while getting you ready for the Dec. 7 WarGames fallout episode of NXT.

This could be how WWE phases out the cruiserweight division

Joe Gacy’s ‘woke’ parody gimmick is anti-weight limits. So what happens if he wins the purple belt at WarGames? Let’s talk about that while getting you ready for the Nov. 30 NXT.

WarGames could give us a Ciampa/Gargano reunion

And other teams of rivals or weird alliances. Let’s talk about that while getting you ready for the Nov. 23 NXT.
