NXT 2.0 is a variety show

NXT remains a fascinating show, if only because it’s still trying to find its footing as what amounts to a new promotion in search of an identity. For this week, it became a damn variety show.

We got:

  • The Italian gangster from Chicago, Tony D’Angelo, as a special guest on Lash Legend’s talk show
  • Josh Briggs & Brooks Jenson playing a game of horseshoes
  • Cameron Grimes and Duke Hudson playing a game of poker
  • MSK hanging out at a bus stop
  • Robert Stone and Xyon Quinn having a singing/dancing competition]

There were matches too, of course, but NXT truly feels like it bounces all over the place, sometimes with little direction. That should clear up as time moves along and they figure out what works best.

Here are all the videos from NXT this week:

  • Io Shirai stands up to Mandy Rose’s toxic actions
  • Cora Jade vs. Dakota Kai
  • MSK want to turn to man behind the curtain
  • Xyon Quinn shows Robert Stone who is the better man
