    Okay so here is the updated card as of this past Thursday's released taping, for those of you who don't know the Match card is pretty much already set and I will have that in a spoiler below for those who want to know but for those keeping score with the tapings as they get released and not spoiling them below is what you should know by now

    Again this is simply how the card looks as of 5/15's released NXT Tapings.
    Below in the spoiler is what the matchcard looks like with next week's results included, I didn't look myself I just copied it and will paste it blindly in a spoiler and post quick =P

    Show Spoiler
    1. Adrian Neville (c) vs. Tyson Kidd Singles match for the NXT Championship
    2. Charlotte vs. Natalya Singles match for the vacant NXT Women's Championship
    3. Sami Zayn vs. Tyler Breeze Singles match to determine the number one contender to the NXT Championship
    4. The Ascension (Konnor and Viktor) (c) vs. El Local and Kalisto Tag team match for the NXT Tag Team Championship

    I believe it said there could be more matches added via announcements on the Network but I didn't want to risk seeing the results so.. please if you wanna discuss the spoiled matches plz use spoilers, but if you just wanna comment on any of the matches already announced since 5/15's taping than feel free.​
  2. Why are Natalya and Tyson Kidd wrestling for NXT titles? lol
    • Dislike Dislike x 1
  3. To put over talent.

  4. They're not wrestling regularly on the main roster (or at least, Kidd isn't - I don't know much about what Natalya's been doing recently) so it makes sense to let them put on a good show in NXT, put over talent and then WWE can think about what to do with them.
  5. Now the updated card as of Thursday's NXT looks like this in case you guys didn't know already:

    Neville v. Kidd - Title Match
    Charolette v. Natty - Title Match
    Ascension v Kalisto and El Local - Title Match
    Sami Zayn v Tyler Breeze - Feuding match
    Adam Rose v Camacho - Feuding Match.

    I didn't see anything that says more to come but that looks like a decent show for being their 2nd "PPV" or w/e you wanna call it.
  6. Apparently the winner of Zayn vs Breeze is the new #1 contender according to wikipedia. I haven't seen NXT in some time now, so I wouldn't know. (I'll be catching up soon.)

  7. Yeah that would make sense..
    Basically there was a Battle Royale which led to Zayn/Kidd/Breeze being the final 3 who got eliminated at the "same time although Breeze' feet touched later IMO" and then there was a triple thread between those three to see who would face Neville at Takeover (Kidd won that) which leaves Zayn and Breeze to fight for the new #1 contender spot.
  8. Oh right, I heard about how there was some battle royale and Breeze's feet touched the floor last so I assumed that, but didn't want to say anything.
  9. Yeah unfortunately it's hard to time it just right to where all three guys touch the floor at the same time but idk that one was noticeable to me (whether it be because I was pulling hard for Breeze to be the #1 Contender or simply because it was that obvious) It's whatever though I like how both the matchups played out; Zayn vs Breeze is going to be a great match IMO.
  10. I've never actually seen Breeze wrestle, but I'll be sure to see him vs Zayn. And speaking of Zayn, I loved his match vs Cesaro... I think it was a year ago? Those two should be in the main roster within 5 years (if Breeze really is as good as I've heard he is).
  11. Zayn and Cesaro went at it at NXT arRIVAL the first PPV not too long ago Feb 27 or 28; dope as fuck match IMO.
    I think Breeze has come into his own, I used to not like him but over the past like 5 months he's grown on me.
  12. Yep, I haven't seen that special event (or PPV, whatever it's called) but I will then, sounds great.

    Breeze kinda seemed weird to me when I first heard about him, a bit like Fandango's over the top-ness but if he's actually involved in good storylines and is able to show off how good he can wrestle, I'm sure I'll like him soon enough.
  13. Breeze's current gimmick is only going to get him so far unfortunately so I do hope they figure something out that will make him more appreciated if/when he gets called up.
  14. So is he some selfie-obsessed fashion model guy who really wants to preserve his good looks while kicking ass?
  15. Essentially yes, they've kinda toned back on preserving his good looks as much after they showed him take a boot to the face from someone (can't quite recall who atm). But yeah the Selfie-obsessed part will get him by for awhile while that shit is still a craze.

  16. Really don't understand the Kidd vs Neville situation tbh. Just not taking it seriously. I'm sure it will be a fantastic match, though.

    I know that Charlotte will win the tourney no matter her opponent. Actually, I know she'll face Natalya and win.
  17. Neville & Charolette vs TK and Natty will probably happen at some point down the road; we've seen the cross gender matches before just not in NXT :emoji_stuck_out_tongue:

    No that's not why they're doing it, idk Sami Zayn is great and all but I'm like 100% he will be called up VERY soon so I don't think they want to give him the belt and then have his reign be shorter than expected.

    Natty overall is just a good opponent for Charlotte they both have some meat on their bones and are decently buff chicks.

    These two being part of the Hart family (whether it be extended in TK's case or not) are good tools to use to help put the developmental superstars over in the NXT promotion IMO, especially if they have nothing going on for the main roster at the moment.
  18. Nice card. Loved ArRIVAL and am happy to be all caught up on NXT again now, so looking forward to trying to catch this live.
  19. I'm interested to see if the match between The Ascension and Kalisto ft El Locale (Ricardo Rodriguez) will go a decent length.
    I wouldn't say this card looks better than arRIVAL's but I will say it definitely is on an impressive level as far as the developmental roster goes.

  20. Yeah exactly. It'd be hard to beat ArRIVAL, as I'm sure they went all out for their first "PPV," but on paper this seems like it'll still be a good quality, entertaining show. I love Konnor and marked big time for Kalisto, so I'll be very interested to see how long their match goes, as well. Hopefully they'll get decent time in to really do the match justice while letting everyone showcase their talents. And of course I'm looking forward to seeing Zayn vs. Breeze.
