I know I usually am able to watch it up on dailymotion.

Wow, Duthy even refers to it as the NXT Clash of the Champions. I like. Saw enough to catch his opening monologue. I'll have to bookmark it and watch it later. Thanks for the post.

Thanks, mtx. That Cesaro-Adrian Neville match was really excellent to watch.

That was some TNA 2010 booking right there.

There are a ton of these kinds of "buzzfeed-esque" articles. The promo photos are gold, and the captions sometimes utterly brilliant.

The Mordecai one had me in tears and I don't even watch that crazy cartoon.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

My favorite part of that NXT Clash of the Champions episode.

Spoiler


Dude is over with that crowd. Love his gimmick.

NXT should replace SmackDown as the B show and- Uh- Superstars? Main Event? That other show as the C show. Crazy that NXT is their D/E/F show, especially when they're trying to build up names.

I can see not wanting to promote NXT - they want to use the program to build guys, and promoting it could expose guys too soon, or in the wrong gimmick, etc. It gives them (as a hypothetical, because it's not likely to happen) the opportunity to reintroduce El Generico in that gimmick in WWE but still have him wrestle as (uh, whatever his gimmick is) currently.

For instance, WWE brought back Rey Mysterio in his mask, but when I saw him a few times in HWA right after he signed with WWE, he worked without a mask.

They're in a bit of a bind for sure. It also doesn't make sense to use this show to build guys when they have plenty of time to do so on their 7 or so other hours of weekly programming, yet fail to do so.

I wish they had a more robust product, but moving this one up the food chain isn't the answer to their problems.

Good points. :)

Totally forgot that NXT is/was FCW, their developmental territory.

Still wish they'd make it easier to access. I think most of us here have an interest to see what happens to Hero, Black, and Generico and want to support them somehow.

Raw was quite a hit or miss show, but featured some damn fine action on it at points.

Pac vs. Cesaro on NXT was fantastic.

And not to harp on you like others, Jay, but what's with the screens you choose to show? Do we really need to see a screenshot of Matt Striker waiting to interview someone? Or a deceiving screenshot that would imply Lesnar was actually at the show?

I miss Fandango's old dancer. She always had a scowling look to other wrestlers that I think was perfect for a heel valet. Probably just a short term deal to teach him how to dance.

At least they used a real wrestler as the dancer, could easily form an angle at some point, rather than someone that wouldn't work well. Also from NXT i could see Summer Rae handling the heel role with Fandango.

Watched the last few eps of NXT. Good shit, especially the last one with the champ matches. Enough to the point where I'm considering driving up to Orlando to catch it sometime. May be worth it to see Ambrose/Rollins work a match.

I like to occasionally go back and watch this. Still one of my favorite pieces WWE has produced, along with Macho Man's tribute video, which went far and above anything I expected from the company, given their history with Savage.

The Lonely Road of Faith Desire montage is without a doubt my favorite video package that WWE has ever created. Amazing what happens when they not only acknowledge but embrace their past.

Scott Hall revealed that he has dropped 30 pounds in nine weeks. Here is what he wrote on Twitter:

“Lost 30 in 9 weeks. From 298 lbs to 268 lbs with limited exercise. Can’t wait to train hard with Dally…”

He's 19 pounds below his WWF-era weight. So he's probably about 11 pounds heavier than he was in WWF.

Good on him either way.

I like the video, I really can't stand the music though.

Speaking of brilliant montages though...

Feel-good story of the year. DDP is working some magic to change the lives of Jake Roberts and Scott Hall. Something many people have undoubtedly tried before and failed. Incredible.

Cesaro looking good without the yodeling.

Smackdown Preview:

Ryback vs. Daniel Bryan is supposed to be Ryback's best match and a good match in general.
